8:03 pm
other items that it wants from the united states. so iran has demonstrated a capability to enrich uranium since 2003. this is nearly 20 years of enrichment activity. so that's nothing new. why does new in the growing stop pile of enriched uranium? iran also has delivery systems in the form of ballistic missiles. so taken together, there are some consent that iran may go for a nuclear weapons capability a short order, but we mustn't forget that there are other countries in the middle east that also have ballistic missiles. and israel is non reputed to have had a nuclear weapons program as well as delivery systems. so iran is not alone in the region. iraq supreme court has ruled against dissolving parliament, saying it doesn't have the constitutional authority. politicians allied with influential sheer liter booked. heather of sutter had re filed a petition last month after a previous request was rejected. so those supporters have been protesting for

8:05 pm
organized by current prime minister stuff. i'll call the me between the coordination framework and various other sort of dominant posed 2003 parties. however, looked at the, has refused to partake in these talks, and what they've done is they form the committee that's supposed to decide on the formation of been, you can say to government and decide on dates for the new elections and what they're trying to do at the moment to get them to agree to joining the tools that there are no signs at present that he's willing to do. so president vladimir putin has warned the west that it cannot isolate russia. he was speaking of the eastern economic fall in love of all stock. he rejected a un nuclear watchdog report on the jeffery ship power plant in ukraine. denying that russia has military equipment at the facility. and that's after the i a, a called for a demilitarization zone around what is europe largest nuclear plant. he also said that western sanctions against russia had backfired. and now threatened the whole
8:06 pm
world. you do seem to newly hurt because of the sanctions from the west have been an aggressive attempt to get other countries to follow certain models. there are questions around sovereignty and subordinating to their will. these are policies which have been carried out for decades. but there's been slipping away of us domination. they haven't been able to see the objective fact. if we look at recent times, the entire system of international relations is going through tectonic change of putin threatened to cut off boil and gas to countries that impose and energy price capital. he called it a dumb idea. the g 7 has already agreed to camps and the u is considering it. we aim at lowering the cost of gas and therefore we will propose a price cap on russian gas. of course, the objective is very clear. we all know that our sanctions, deeply grinding into the russian economy with heavy negative impact.
8:07 pm
but booting is partially buffering through fossil fuel revenues. so here the objective is we must cut rushes revenues, which fortune uses to finance is atrocious. war and ukraine. and dominic cane has more from berlin the last few days, few weeks about the russian position. these are ve, the energy crisis. we know that several western governments have said that it's a weapon, eyes ation of the situation. we know the e you long ago said that they believe that's president putin was recognizing the situation. what you need to remember is that not just the eve of the g 7 has already said that it would like to see price caps on russian oil. now we know that the spanish government has said that the e u is considering price caps on russian gas masses for spain, because spain, over the course of this summer has been shipping in more l. n g,
8:08 pm
that's liquefied natural gas from russia. so the suggestion that the b caps on prices, well, that obviously would potentially have an effect on russia. and we know that president putin is talking about. he said that the west would be frozen using a russian allusion to a russian fairy tale about a wolf having its tail frozen. that's the sort of language that he is using. and it has to be said, it is in direct opposition to the sorts of language that he, you leaders, other western leaders happening using these avi russia. clearly there is no question. there is no meeting of minds between president putin's position and the position of the politicians in brussels and elsewhere. that same speech vladimir putin also accuse ukraine of cheating, developing countries out of grain shipments and sending its harvest to the european union. instead, an advisor to ukraine's president says that claim is groundless. last week a ship came 23000 tons of ukrainian grain arrived in east africa. a dispute your
8:09 pm
continuous, if we did everything we could to get this ukrainian grain as we did this with turkey is the result. if we remove turkey as an intermediary, virtually all the grain was brought not the poor country but to the european union . the world food program speaks of the need for the poorest country on the out of $60000.00 tons of production, just 3 percent went to developing countries, you know was humans terika lu is a professor of international relations that is stumble, aiden university, he says rushes claims a part of a larger geopolitical dispute. i don't think that the russian explanations on this particular issue makes the reality on the grounds. what we have is that there is a kind of consultation, been russia and russia, ukraine, and ukrainian, or russian have older, committed to comply with the terms of the screening agreements. i think russians are feeling the growing exposure to creating a text lately in recent days. and also the europeans are increasing the kind of
8:10 pm
pressure on russia. so i think rational leadership might have decides to find a certain damage on this kind of growing assault on ukraine. so you should be should see, hash kinds of frustration as part of our logic, your political game. it's part of teeth for type kind of face. the countries which are located in the global chart are in dire of having access to such kind of grades . so i think ukrainians and russians are supposed to go, they advance to make sure that those grains reach to the countries which are in need of. so i find the idea that the russia, ukraine, and ships target european nations or countries other than the countries in the global start at some helps fabrication. so rich, i think it doesn't reflect the reality because this will be in complete violation of the terms. the hell did committed themselves to comply with in july 2002. and so i think this is a part of larger jo political accusation begin will say,
