U.S. officials confident two Iranian missiles hit Ukrainian plane

"It appears now that in Ronnie and missile hit the Ukrainian airliner that went down after take off from Tehran this week all hundred and seventy six people on board died many of them Canadian citizens British Australian and and Canadian prime minister say the intelligence is pointing to Iran here's Canada's prime minister Justin Trudeau the evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by an Iranian surface to air missile this may well have been an intention I want to start interjecting north them who's been following the story hijacking morning David so true though the first leader to come out and and say this definitively what what what exactly is he saying in terms of what he's seen well it wasn't specific about what evidence there is but he said that intelligence from various sources and that includes Canada's own intelligence agency indicates that the Ukrainian airliner was brought down by a surface to air missile shortly after takeoff from Toronto International Airport the US and other nations were closely monitoring around for missile launchers on the night of the crash using satellites and most likely saw the launch of an anti aircraft missile Ukrainian president Vladimir salen ski said the possibility that the plane had been hit by a missile can't be ruled out but it still hasn't been confirmed and he's asked the US and other western nations to release any evidence they have that the Ukrainian aircraft had been shut down and and of course we've seen video heard eye witnesses saying this plane was was just engulfed in flames shortly after it took off how is it run explaining this at this point well running officials came out quickly and said it was a mechanical failure and David they've stuck with that explanation since you know this was met with widespread skepticism first of all the crusher just happened there had even been an investigation in aviation analysts say a mechanical failure wouldn't have said a whole airplane on fire so quickly also this is a three year old plane but around said that the idea that it was hit by an Iranian missile was psychological warfare well a lot of questions about whether the Iranians are actually gonna allow for investigators to come in to Iran on to the crash site and what where do things stand right now all right now about forty five Ukrainian investigators are already in a run and obviously Ronnie investigators are on the ground as well late last night your own in government sent out an official notice about the crash and what that does is it triggers the involvement of other countries in the investigation and that will include the U. S. national transportation safety board as well as bowling I remember this was a Boeing aircraft but this is where it gets tricky because the US has sanctions on Iran in US law restricts any travel to around or any sharing of information in fact the NTSB cannot communicate directly with the Iranians so with the M. P. S. in NTSB or bowling representatives go to Ron will have to be okayed by the state department and or the treasury department and what about the the the black box that is always so important in in every crash like this I would never treat a black box you know the rainy and say that they'll let the U. S. on to the site but if I do you know they're saying that they will not give the U. S. a black box because they don't they don't trust what the the Americans are going to do with that frankly so there's a lot of work ahead David hi Jackie thank you reporting really appreciate it thanks David centers Jackie north and I want to turn now to someone very familiar with crash investigations like this it's Mary Schiavo she is the former inspector general of the U. S. department transportation on Skype this morning thanks for being here good good to be with you thank you I want to just pick up on on what Jackie was talking about the very end there Iran saying that if the U. S. gets this black box they they might read things into it they might interpret it differently is that how black boxes work well it can be yes it will there's couple layers here first of all when you download the black box it's very important to use a black box flammable lab that is capable of downloading the information that the boxes won't be damaged in the download in terms of damaging the information stored there on and that you do a good download that depends upon the capabilities of the lab rand hasn't been known to have such a lab that you literally can have a lab such as this you know you can buy it from contractors you can have it delivered or you could contract with Canada France Great Britain Australia they all have great labs and I'm sure would help the second part comes on the data interpretation okay Iran has said that they will make the data public now the actual voices if there are any voices on the CD are you know after that whatever happened happened usually they just do a transcript of the C. B. R. so you don't hear the person's voices you know in distress in their last moments of life but I ran a said they're going to make this all public and they're gonna posted on their public docket which is exactly how the NTSB and other aviation nations do it so at that point the world can interpret what the black boxes have determined hand that the old what what do you think we might learn that would clear this up I mean you have western officials saying this is clearly that what they see as a missile strike in a run saying that's impossible well at you know and and sadly the world has had many experiences with this most recently the shoot down of MH seventeen year over Ukraine and the way you rule out mechanical failures obviously look at the black box data the flight data recorder and see if there was nothing wrong with the plane they I'm sure they already were reviewed what's called the ACARS data the automated messages from the plane itself about for our for residue from explosives examine the pieces of the wreckage for explosive residue the signature of the missile is very different from exploding aviation fuel for example so you can tell what kind of explosion at once and the human remains will also contain or can also contain explosive residue so that you you are you convinced that there will be a moment when the world can say with with certainty that this may have been a mess on that are wrong won't be able to get away with denying it or or as you mentioned the Ukrainian press over Ukraine that this could be an open question that that we might never clear up well I think the world is going to know you know soon I think most nations will close their intelligence center satellite viewings and will make it pretty clear in the case of MH seventeen obviously were Russia to this day he denies that it was a Russian missile or that that Russians temperatures had anything to do with it and the funny thing about mo shoot down instances other than when a notable exception is when the United States shot down an Iranian a civilian jetliner by mistake United States admitted its mistake and pay damages most shoot down cases go on the record on the books forever as saying that the the entity that shot it down denies it so the world will pass judgment and will will you know the facts will will soon come out and it will seem obvious to the world but perpetrators tendon in my these things in

"The Trump administration has been talking about possibly using military force against Iran, and we should be clear so far. There's a lot of signaling though, sign of shooting. The US has deployed additional warships and planes to the Gulf region in recent days, and top administration officials will brief members of congress today, the president is warned that the US would use quote great force, if note the if, if Iran were to attack us interests, they've been very hostile. They've Julie been the number one. Provocateur of Tara, buddy, also left some room for negotiation. They called. We would certainly goes yet, but that's going to be up to them. I don't really want them to call. They're ready. The administration, of course, has been threatening economic steps against anyone doing business with Iran, especially buying Ronning oil many companies around the world, scrambling to make sure they don't violate those newly imposed sanctions and NPR's. Jackie north has been looking into the sanctions. Jackie good morning. Always the US is not just hitting you on with sanctions. They're penalizing companies for doing business with Iran. How does that work? How do they find out? Well, the US dollar is the most commonly used currency in the world and the majority of transactions, whether you know, it's wire transfers or currency exchanges payments are done in the dollar, and those transactions will electrically run through about a half a dozen major banks in the US. You can imagine the computers in those banks watch trillions of transactions, and they have software that will alert them. If a person or company on a US sanctions list is trying to do a transaction. They'll then alert the treasury department in you know the penalties can be big four years ago. The French Bank PNB para BNP parable was fined nine billion dollars for violating those sanctions against business with Iran. Now that those sanctions have been reimposed companies. Let me tell you are scrambling to comply nine billion dollars. I underline the scramble. What are some of the steps, he's companies are taking to stay on the right side of this. Well, a lot of more proactively scrutinizing their transactions, and I'm told many international companies are hiring. Former treasury department officials to help make sure they're in compliance. Not violating USA. I dug down into some quarterly financial reports from Amazon and found that they've been going through their transactions with a fine tooth comb. They have declaration, saying they've discovered sales, and or deliveries of books and jewelry, and toys even pet products. It's too Arrhenius embassies consulates since twenty twelve you know, the even mentioned a twenty dollar delivery to someone who may have been working with the Iranian government. So, you know, it's better to go back and look rather than face one of these very heavy fines, or even be banned from the US financial system. The US pro reimpose sanctions on Iran after President Trump pulled the US out of the nuclear deal, but other countries still do support the deal. Can they get a reprieve from these sanctions? It's, it's really difficult to do that. Because the dollar is so pervasive Europe, has talked about creating they're calling special purpose vehicle to do these transactions with Iran is sort of a separate payment system in it's usually as you say involving oil, but they haven't figured out to do it, and it just hasn't hasn't got off the ground. You know, companies don't wanna appear to be working around the White House and risk getting a cut out of the US financial systems. There's other ways, there's trading and bartering with Iran for goods. But it's cumbersome. And again it runs. Risk of crossing the US, NPR's international affairs. Correspondent Jackie north.

"I'm Steve Inskeep. And I'm David Greene. A standoff between the US and China is playing out in Canada this morning, a top executive from Chinese tech giant will be in court there for an extradition hearing mung Joe is chief financial officer of wa wa one of the world's largest cell phone manufacturers and tech companies. She was arrested in December at the request of the US as she was travelling through Canada. And now she's under house arrest in Vancouver. Which is where NPR's Jackie north has been reporting this story. Good morning. Jackie. Good morning. David is reminded who this woman is and what she has allegedly done here that that's got the interest of the United States. Sure. Yeah. Along Joe is the chief financial officer of walkway, and she's also the daughter of the founder of that company, and the Trump administration alleges that long tried to skirt US sanctions on Iran, and as you say I requested Canada arrest or she was passing through the airport here in Vancouver and extradited to the US now she's been held under house arrest for the past three months. He owns a couple of homes here in Vancouver. Last week. Canada's said the US head presented enough evidence for the extradition hearing to go ahead. And today is the start of that process of whether or not she will be extradited to the UF. Okay. So this is a moment where President Trump might want to make sure there's teeth behind sanctions when it comes to Iran. But it's also a moment where the relationship between the United States and China has been so fraud over trade that has to be playing into all of this, right? Well, you're right. The US and China are embroiled in a trade dispute. Both countries though, say that this has nothing to do with the hallway trial, but you know, David why way is a very powerful and influential Chinese company and Beijing has strongly protested monks arrest, it's been seen as a Kintu arresting the second in command of a company like apple so it's huge and China sees the move as political and that is being used as upon by the US in the trade dispute and David that belief was likely confirmed when President Trump suggested that monks case could be included in the trade deal. But there's more here, you know, -mongst case comes at a time when the US has charged walkway the company with trying to steal trade secrets from a company like t mobile, and the Trump administration has been pressuring allies not to use hallway equipment saying he'll be vulnerable to cyber attacks because of its close links to the Chinese government. So again, there's a lot more than just an extradition hearing going on. He's a lot at play here. I mean Canada has been. Got into this. Because that's where she was when she was arrested. But it's so interesting when you have an extradition question like this. I mean the country where it's happening actually almost has to play some kind of role. I mean, what what is what is the situation candidate Howard Canadians sort of taking in this story? Oh, you know, I've talked to a lot of Canadians about this over the past couple of months and many people feel the country's being squeezed between the US and China the Canadian government has to honor the extradition treaty with the US. But some people feel Canada's being used by the Trump administration to gain an upper hand with China. Others are angry at China shortly after mum was detained China arrested. Two Canadians one of them, a former diplomat, and they were recently charged with espionage, many people are angry that those two Canadians are living under harsh conditions in a Chinese prison. Among is living under house arrest in one of her multimillion dollar homes here in Vancouver. And there's also a lot of supporters of monk can Vancouver has a huge Chinese community. And many are expected to be at the courtroom today to show their support for well decision should be made on unrest tradition today. Or is this just one step? Oh, no. This is just the first step me. And it could take months or even years from to be extradited to the US and Jackie Northam reporting for us in Vancouver this morning..
