K. and Bahrain are part of it there's a lot of skepticism though from countries that really don't want to be drawn into a conflict with Iran and you know countries that are you supportive still of the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal with Iran so is Pompeii are going to get this party once well in the security council today actually heard a lot of concern about the U. S. approach you heard representatives of Germany France in the U. K. all saying they don't see any alternative to the nuclear deal they were involved in the negotiations and don't want to see it unravel China's ambassador said his country is opposed to power politics and bowling and then Russia's ambassador said that he went through all of Pompeii is remarks word for word and found only words like threats regime conflict and no mention of dialogue he says the only time palm bay spoke about cooperation was to call for a coalition against Iraq well the US pulled out of the nuclear deal soon after compare became secretary of state that was over a year ago what's your sense at this point is this maximum pressure campaign working the way the trump administration had hoped has it made a run change its behavior well Pompeii is is is working in the one example he always gives is that around doesn't have as much money to give to groups like Hezbollah and Hamas but it also if you look at the whole list of U. S. demand you'll see that Iran is moving in the opposite directions on many of these friends around still holding American prisoners it shot down a U. S. drone it captured and it's still holding a British vessel and as Pompey himself pointed out in the security council Iran has been ramping up its nuclear program recently and that's what he was called extortion diplomacy he's telling people not to cave to that kind of pressure that that is that the sanctions will pay off eventually because it's the only way to pressure Iran back back to the negotiating table as NPR's Michele Kelemen thanks Michelle thank you unless you're now from inside of Ron and ask how are these sanctions affecting around government and its people well our colleague Steve Inskeep of NPR's morning edition is there he is reporting all this week from Tehran he Steve they their memories what does it feel like they're doesn't feel like a city under siege from sanctions not when you first show up it is a vast modern megacity on the side of this mountain range immense traffic takes hours to get from one place to another but when you stop when you get out of the car when you talk to people you do sense enormous economic pressure that people are feeling just to get through their day in what way wanted to tell you well inflation is really bad food prices are way up and medicine in some cases is hard to come by we visited a cancer clinic and we spoke with doctor must in a sunny who is a doctor there she's got US made radiation machines and they're hard to maintain let's listen you have to repair some parts and then you'll have not access to the main company and a you're not able to why did spare parts we need she also says she can't get U. S. made chemotherapy drugs and has to rely on older forms of chemotherapy treatment but hang on let me stop you for sector because I thought medicine and food were not supposed to be covered by US sanctions that's what the USS and the U. S. is right about that they are not covered but for Iran to buy that stuff from outside foreign firms have to sell it which requires financing bank transactions are afraid of getting caught by U. S. banking sanctions there's also problems within Iran by the way with corruption with mismanagement in any case some medical materials are in short supply all right well this prompts me to ask you then who who do run ins blame for these problems do they blame their government to they blame the sanctions this is the key question because the US would like them to pressure their government of course Iran would like its people to to blame the US many do blame the United States here because people are aware of the sanctions but in interviews with ordinary people like some we did the other night in a park it was a holiday was the evening people went out in this very hot city in the cool of the evening they were out on blankets smoke Sheesh eating food sounds that way they was it was a lovely scene and people had very free conversations and in quite a few cases they specifically blame to their own government and among other things blamed their government for not being willing to negotiate you'll recall that Iran's supreme leader recently said there was no point in negotiating with president from food indicated he would like to talk in some way there are at least some Iranians who disagree with that decision and who lay the blame for a lot of their troubles in a lot of different ways on their government what about Iran's leaders any sign you have been able to pick up on that they are feeling the effects of the sanctions or or changing their behavior in anyway I don't think that the elites feel this very much at all because they have the resources to be able to adjust if you're in the northern part of Tehran which is the really wealthy part there's actually a construction boom with Gallo construction cranes all over the place and lots of construction noises and buildings going up apparently as people put their money into real estate which seems like a safer bet than some other things Steve before I let you go I'm just curious your impression as you speak to people how free they seem to feel to speak to you I mean compared to past visits you've been there how many times this is my sixth visit over about ten years and I think the debate which is always more more free in Iran than you would imagine from outside has become still more free and the last couple of years people are more explicit than I've noticed in the past when they do have critical things to say about the government although I think by and large people still support the general idea of this government and do not necessarily support policies of the United States Steve glad to talk to you is Steve Inskeep reporting there from Tehran he will have more reporting you'll hear it on in Paris morning edition over the next three days.

Coming up next
