6:54 am
the s 300 said by a group or so in the iranian port city of bandar of us. a day of national pride for iran the unveiling of its own long range surface to air missile defense system 373 after years of sanctions that stopped iran from importing many weapons it's had to develop its own domestic arms industry and now facing a military buildup in the region president has done rouhani is defiant. now that o. enemies do not accept logic we cannot respond with logic when the enemy launches a missile against us we cannot give a speech and say mr rocket please do not hit our country and innocent people we cannot say mr rocket launcher please hit a button and self-destruct the missile in me is. the before us 373 can identify up to 100 targets at the same time iran's ballistic missile program was not part of the 2015 nuclear deal
6:55 am
a reason cited by the united states for pulling out of the agreement last year and imposing sanctions on iran. the recent seizing of oil tankers an iranian vessel detained in the british overseas territory of gibraltar and the u.k. flag tanker detained by iran in the gulf has raised tensions further now the u.s. has put together a naval coalition it says is to protect the freedom of navigation through the gulf strategic strait of hormuz. we're 20 percent of the world's oil posses through a narrow stretch of water that iran and oman share territorial rights too. bad oh yeah without iran there would not be any security in the region that iran is a superpower ready to provide security for the region persian gulf and strait of hormuz stop pressuring us and stop encouraging your friends to be hostile towards us we're ready for friendship and defense as we are ready to fight back any invasion. the iranian tanker grace one i renamed a dream and was released on the orders of the gibraltar's supreme court and is now
6:56 am
heading to greece iran however is still holding the british tanker in the strait of hormuz the british flexed and impaired was seized by the revolutionary guard last month for what they say were violations of international maritime regulations they say the vessel had changed directions in the shipping lanes it collided with a fishing boat but also a trained officer tracking systems to avoid iranian forces and iran says the seizure and release of this vessel has nothing to do with the iranian vessel that was seized by british royal marines off the coast of gibraltar although a foreign ministry spokesman said a few days ago that he hoped that the issue would be in front of the court and that the ship would be released very soon. a straight year britain and buttering have joined the u.s. coalition but on the seas here it's iran that still feels it holds a strategic advantage in any potential conflict i said big al jazeera underboss iran united nations security council has been meeting at the request of russia and china to discuss current u.s.
6:57 am
missile policy and its impact on international peace and security it comes after the u.s. military tested a ground launched missile on sunday with a range of more than 500 kilometers the test would have been banned under the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty but the u.s. pulled out of the agreement 3 weeks ago she had a chance he has been following events for us at the united nations so she has told us to level with saying. well everyone said pretty much what we expected them to say the americans blaming their withdrawal from the i.m.f. on the russians and chinese the washington says the russians have long flouted the agreement by developing intermediate range land based missiles and the chinese well they were never a signatory in the 1st place so they're quietly building up at arsenal of the same sorts of missiles so as far as the us is concerned or what you know why should washington be part of the street or these developments by the russian federation in china coupled with their aggressive and course of behaviors are key drivers behind
6:58 am
a deteriorating security environment the united states will not and cannot ignore this reality we will not stand idle we'll take the necessary steps to ensure our security and that of our allies and partners and that includes testing in developing systems to respond to the challenges we face as well as being prepared to engage in what our president has described a new era of arms control well moscow has longer knives flouting the treaty and in fact say sunday's test now proves what they've always said that the u.s. has been flouting the treaty by deploying what it calls a missile defense system in eastern europe but was which is in fact what is in fact an intermediate oftens of system aimed at russia because they point out that the missile launcher used in the u.s. is us is test launch on sunday is exactly the same as the one that has been deployed in romania and in poland except modified slightly so it can launch offensive intermediate nuclear missiles so russia is saying look this is proof that
6:59 am
the us has been fighting this all the time and europe isn't doing enough because as a result europe has the potential to become another battlefield as it was a potential battlefield as it was during the cold war. to the european allies of washington are you happy today do you not understand that with the americans you are returning to a situation where missiles were targeting european cities from different sides. as for the chinese they say well look leave us out of this i mean it's terrible that the us has withdrawn from this treaty under strengthening to deploy intermediate missiles around the pacific region but we're not going to sign up to any new deal between russia and the u.s. because our arsenal is defensive and his dwarfed anyway by the u.s. and russia and that's how things were left with the 3 sides basically saying what we expected them to say the argument continues. thank you very much but more still
7:00 am
ahead on al-jazeera including the hidden cost of venezuelan oil as a once thriving industry crumbles. i'm sorry i echo and lump it where an ngo vessel carrying 356 people on board is waiting to dock safely. hello there without some very wet and windy weather into the southeast australia the last few days it's on its way really across towards the tells been see so clearing conditions along the east coast pushing in as you can see here into western australia that will bring some showers the winds being strong along the east coast so sydney this is just around the bay from bondi beach very high winds very big you can see it looks like fun but of course that can be very dangerous it should be coming down.
