now, many of the wells airlines were beginning a financial recovery. when the on the chrome varied was identified in november. since then, travel bands and tough a testing roles have dealt another blow on kong bass. kathy pacific is in particularly bad shape. brit clena reports the pandemic is taking a toll on the global aviation industry. but hong kong flagship carriers facing particularly turbulent times, kathy pacific has drastically reduced its number of flight since the started the pandemic, as it navigates some of the world's harshest border restrictions and quarantine requirements. and its staff being blamed for 5th wave in hong kong. the territories 1st outbreak in months after a crew member breached quarantine, the government has responded by tightening the rules for returning air crews even further and have banned flights from a number of countries. a cafe pacific flight attendant who asked al jazeera to conceal his identity, says he isn't confident the airline will be able to survive the setbacks. i think
3:23 am
he said to think what the future off to phase, but due to the situation, we still cannot see any field her. oh, also we are not same as the other country, which is all i air crew business is thought thing. back to normal in hong hall. we still have many restriction before corona virus. this was one of the world's busiest airports. but after the pandemic head, hong kong introduce tough restrictions, and it became a ghost town. now under new measures to contain the army kron variant. it's unclear when the territories aviation industry will be able to take off again, a government advisor and top epidemiologist. ivan hung says, although only chron is a mild of variant than delta, the border controls are necessary. if you allow old to the virus to run walt, basically you put a lot of stress on the health system. and of course, with
3:24 am
a not satisfactory. so co vaccination rate, a 70 percent, you will have obviously a lot of cases, thousands of flights. we cancelled over the year end holiday period. when use of ami kron emerged, and many governments band flights from south africa. and in the united states, a mix of army crone and rough weather continues to create headwinds for the sector with hundreds of flights cancel this week. as the virus grounds crew members, flight cancellations are frustrating for everybody. obviously, they're frustrating for the passengers were affected. but it's also frustrating for the airlines because they've taken a lot of steps to get through the pandemic. frustration continues to grow here with many now asking whether these ramped up rules will undermine itself titled role as ages world city brit clinic, al jazeera, hong kong aaron's foreign minister has told al jazeera and nuclear agreement can be
3:25 am
reached. if western parties have the will and the intention to do so, an 8th round of talks is currently underway in vienna, which i around once guarantees that you are sanctions will be lifted on iranian oil sales, missouri that amongst the h round of the vienna negotiations put them back on the right track and a good agreement can be reached if the western parties possessed a real willing intention. lifting sanctions means lifting all forms of sanction stipulated in the nuclear agreement on the sanctions that trump re imposed and contradicted terms of the agreement. and the latter is in disputed negotiations. we demand guarantees that include not imposing any new sanctions and not re imposing sanctions after lifting them under any pretext. we see that the simplest practical model for this would be when it comes to us exporting oil and obtaining revenues through our banking system. there's an informal and indirect exchange of messages with the americans in vienna, one, we have good words from their delegation. but what is important for us is to see
3:26 am
practical and serious american actions. dosage of ours in vienna for us for the resumption of the talks. this is a 1st interview, though, a newly appointed foreign minister has given to an international and use outlet and he seemed quite optimistic. he said that at the talks are still ongoing. it's a good sign that this round is much different than the previous round because the technical issues and the logistical issues they had over the agenda has been resolved this around the 8th round is now moving forward with what they are actually going to be deciding about in terms of how the sanctions will be lifted in which sanctions and the foreign minister was very specific about iran's position and gave some very, an a good examples of what they're looking for when they say iran wants it. sanctions this anxious to be lifted and he explained that the sanctions that were supposed to be lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal as agreed upon need to be lifted as well as the additional sanctions that came into effect. after did you asked left
3:27 am
a deal in 2018? and he gave an example of how that would be verified by the iranians. and that would be when iran is able to sell its oil on the international market and receive payment through its own banks. right now, iran is not able to sell. it's an oil on the international market because of heavy us sanctions. and south korea was one of the countries that is heavily reliant on a raining oil. and when those sanctions were imposed in 2018, they received a special waiver from the u. s. government. but that waiver ran out after a few months and the has yet to pay iran for the oil that they purchased than they owe iranians over $70000000000.00. and there is an delegation here in vienna from south korea speaking to the americans. and they also met with the iranians here on thursday to discuss how to move forward and how to overcome at some of the hurdles that they have about paying or on in the foreign minister pointed out that this would be an example. it would be assigned by the americans that they are serious
3:28 am
about returning to the nuclear deal. and of course iran would also do the same in terms of limiting its nuclear activities and returning to compliance. scientists are sailing to a giant glazier in antartica to get a better idea of how much is being impacted by climate change. they'll use underwater robots to get beneath the weights glazier. that's referred to as the doomsday glazier, because it would raise global see levels by 65 centimeters if it collapses and melts. research already shows its hemorrhaging more and more ice. glass is enormous, a 192000 square kilometers, which is about the size of person. karen haywood is a lead scientist on the projects and explains what they're trying to one cover. it's an enormous gas yet. and if it did completely melts, then it would lead to $65.00 centimeters, a global sea level,
3:29 am
so spread across the whole glow. but we don't think that's going to happen in your lifetime of mine. nonetheless, it's really important to understand when it might start to collapse and, and to get a better idea of the sea level rise that we might experience in our lifetime that, that makes a difference for the sea level defense is that we, we all depend on. so we're going to send a fleet of to really large robotic submarines beneath the ice show. so the floating bit of ice, we're going to send these are the submarines into that cavity where nobody's ever being before. so we don't know what we're going to find. but what we think is happening is that the relatively warm sea water is, is impacting on the base of the sea of the i of the ice shelf and, and is accelerating the melting of it. and,
3:30 am
and that's important because that i shop is kind of propping up the whole glass. yeah. and if we lose a bit of ice from the floating bit, then the rest could start accelerating towards the sea. so. so yes, we're going to be measuring, measuring the current on the water. ah, i'm only inside here. the headlines on out as they are placed in kazakhstan, largest city, say they've killed thousands of rises. the last 24 hours purchase began over fuel price high. can of st escalated into some according enough pricing, or than 3 and a half 1000, mainly russian troops or russian lead security lines being deployed to help secure order? i think for us, the important thing is that security forces, whether they are cosmetic or whether they're.
