as soon as they produce gas patricky, mika, eric will do. the intro to hong kong across the initiation of flight between they have on in caracas is also facilitating trade development. and will also kind of expand the relation between the 2 nations. either in campbell by uses as m as in movie me into, into the did with you that a little more later man, you got to a decreasing into less unit economy. classical ms. ellison campbell basis. he asked the car was last year a show around on i'm from push on my dad, and i would like to once again when the come, his marable, president in the head,
11:31 am
the negation. and i hope that it will be another step in expansion of relations between 2 countries within the and i was that they had companion. and so b c dan is phase is better because we down to the inflection in less and less unison read. anyone. it's on the car, he's been you're wondering how does it? we've been bringing your life pictures from teracon of a press conference being held between iran's president, the burglary sea and the venezuelan president and nicholas my daughter who's on a tour of the country. they have just signed a 20 year agreement across a range of issues including energy around it's been supplying venezuela with crude
11:32 am
oil, despite us sanctions imposed on the 2 countries. president madura had been talking about the various elements that both countries had been sharing the was talking about oil and defense. it was talking about the benefits of tourism from iran to venezuela as well. i want to bring in some more stuff. he's a professor of political science at the university of turnaround. he's been with us last that press conference has been happening. good to have the weather. so thanks very much indeed for your patience. one of the things that both men did refer to and they were speaking off the cuff, that didn't appear to be any prepared notes. was the element of joint stones against what they regard as imperialism. how much do you think that this meeting was symbolic of that as much as embedding if you like the, the cooperation between the 2, the 2 countries? yes, i also did notice that i think both president saw talked extensively about standing
11:33 am
up to american imperialism and colonialism. and i think they want to project an image, the, an alignment of a standing up to american hegemony is taking place. and i think such a strategy possibly could be successful if bigger countries, such as china and russia, also join in. also, i think was significant. then the press conference, something i noticed was that delegations of both countries were mostly an economic delegation rather than military or security oriented. most of the economic ministers and economic aids in both presidents. they talked about economic cooperation extensively in terms of tourism and new g construction, etc. president, missouri had said that the 2 countries were and i hope i get this quote right, the vanguard of an emerging global order in which the u. s. no longer has military
11:34 am
dominant going back to the point you made about, it depends on whether not china and russia steps. and what do you make of that dynamic? what do you think the chances are that china and russia and possibly other countries as well might step in? i'm joining venezuela and iran. while in the past few months, the global order has been changing as a result of the war and ukraine. russia has become under very severe heavy sanctions by western powers, especially by the americans. and iran has also been distant from the united states as a result of donald trump leaving the nuclear deal. so both iran and russia have more incentive to joined the so called eastern camp. and china has a very different story. i mean the chinese are a very rapidly rising power. so they do have a lot of interest in challenging american power in the long run. whether this
11:35 am
actually for and an alliance between these countries, we'll have to wait and see. we have to remember that each of these countries have different grievances when it comes to the united states. so it's sort of more the in alliance of the enemy of my enemy is my friend. nevertheless, i do think that in the case of iran in venezuela, if the 2 countries are able to help each other economically, then in terms of the sanctions, the euro being under the united states of sanctions, then that's going to help the 2 countries very much for example, in the case of tourism both because of american sanctions, as well as the coral and pandemic tourism in iran has been on the decline severely . the 2 presidents, for example, talked about direct flights between the 2 countries, which are, it's quite a distance. so it's going to be a very long flight, but in fact, if such
11:36 am
a flight will help kickoff tourism between the 2 countries. then i think that will also help in regards to withstanding american sanctions. i want to ask you about the economic balance of this because both presidents have been talking about the mutual cooperation between the 2 countries. but we went through the list of what was being covered by the 20 year agreement. for example. the emphasis appears to be more on what iran can do for venezuela rather than what venezuela could do for iran . so tell me what in your, what your analysis is of hi, venezuela can benefit iran. so i think what the venezuelans want from iran is mostly in regards to the energy sector when it comes to iran. i mean, iran is an ex border of oil and gas, so a doesn't really need any, any assistance in regards to the energy sector from brand as well. but i think for you on getting construction project road projects. i mean, i saw in the video con,
11:37 am
for in the press conference that the minister of rhodes in urban construction, ross time cost me for example, was present. also i saw that the vice president for educational and technological affairs was there. so getting i think our projects, especially construction projects in venezuela would be in iran interests. also we talked about the issue of tourism. i mean, if tourism can succeed between the 2 countries, then that would help iran make up for western tourism, which is actually dried up since the core on the pandemic started. and also because of american sanctions on iraq. really interesting to get your thoughts on this. so thank you very much indeed, comments. most of it, we appreciate you being with us and i'll just thank you. the secretary of defense. it says china is becoming more aggressive and destabilizing

paychecks simply don't go as far as they used to flying costs. 37 percent more rent . that's up almost 7 percent and food is across the board. more expensive. the price of chicken up 5 percent in a year. you might find picking a one price for the same weight, and then go back with different higher, you know, behind the biggest increase by far gas. it is up by almost 50 percent in just a year, according to gas buddy. but the website, the track caught the average gallon of gas in the u. s. is $5.00 the highest, it has ever been. there are numerous reasons for the rising prices. a spike in food and energy costs resulting from russia's invasion of ukraine is one prudent price i consider in america hard. but other prices are rising because of the ongoing supply chain issues triggered by the coven pandemic. there's too much demand, not enough supply. and
11:49 am
a shortage of transportation capacity. president joe biden is also blaming company consolidation for many of the increases for 99 major ocean line shipping companies that ship from asia to the united states. 9, they form 3 consortium. these companies have raised their prices by as much as 1000 percent. congress is poised to pass a bill that would give us regulators more power over the shipping companies. but that likely won't have an immediate impact. and next week, the federal reserve is poised to raise interest rates again, meaning debt will be that much more expensive for americans and when interest rates keep rising, people feel well, credit is less easy access. it's harder to buy a home. that's also, you know, a negative, but these are the sorts of things it has to happen. as you say, the central bank needs to take action. it is taking action in attempt to stabilize the u. s. economy with americans pain a heavy price particle haine, al jazeera,
