corruption hurting their country and unlikely tourist destination and border with china are cashing in on a boom of visitors. ♪ welcome to the program, france has been holding a ceremony to remember the 130 people killed in paris attacks two weeks ago, families of the victims and some survivors gathered at the history building where the french president francois hollande says they are united. >> translator: france was struck in a cowardly way, in an act of war organized remotely and coldly executed. i simply want to say these words france will be at your side, we will unite our strength to apiece our pain and after having buried the dead it will be up to us to heal those still alive and
6:02 am
promise that france will do everything possible to destroy the army of fanatics who committed the crimes and we know who the enemy is hatred that kills in copenhagen and madrid. >> let get more from correspondent jacky rowland who witnessed the events in paris and understandably somber speech and somber ceremony but the investigation, the inquiries is still a multi national operation. >> reporter: it is, yes, the task over president francois hollande today was very much to reflect and articulate the national mood. first of all paying tribute to those who died, expressing solidarity to the families and to the survivors, also going on to reaffirm french values that insisted were not in any way diminished and not in any way eclipsed by the events of
6:03 am
november the 13th and finally launching this very clear message of france's determination to defeat the forces behind the attacks and yes the very vital part of that will be the continued investigation, the sharing of intelligence with other countries in particular pursuing leads here in europe. we have seen already the importance of the belgium connection early in the investigation and organizer and planner of the attacks of a bell gun national abdelhamid abaaoud and a lot of involvement of belgium police with search and raids and intelligence coming from germany in particular the fact that a week before the attacks that german police arrested a national who had a paris address programmed in his gps and a careful of weapons and
6:04 am
search at the national and international level to catch, track down any other people who were involved in helping to support and provide help to attackers and of course anyone who could potentially be involved in attempting to organize similar attacks. >> do you get the feeling today jacky that is dignified expression of grief and will help the people who are directly effected by the november 13th attacks to process what happened and to move on? >> grieving is a very difficult and a very personal experience. there are not any rules really of how long it will take for individual people, individual families particularly in a case when a loved one has died in such a violent way and the difficulty really facing the president on this occasion is at
6:05 am
the same time summing up a national sense of mourning and yet at the same time acknowledging that there were 130 families there or the families of 130 victims there who were going through their own very personal grieving and of course they have all been holding their own individual funerals. so, yes, it does help to an extent to know that one is being remembered, recognized, supported and honored on a national level and yet as france moves on and the world moves on and focus away from the attacks the individual families are left day in, day out coping with the reality that that loved one will no longer be coming through the front door at the end of the day and as francois hollande said no longer hear the laughter and children will no longer see
6:06 am
parents, that personal loss and personal grief obviously goes on for many, many years. >> jacky thank you very much. and he lost two of his friends in attacks in paris and part of a think tank with intercultural dialog and says the causes of terrorism must be understood if it's to be combatted effectively. >> everyday i think about the people we lost as we all lost someone and this will go on for the rest of my days and for the french people we will always remember the 13th of november and the thing now is we have to mourn, of course we have to mourn but we have to honor those people and to honor those memories we have to fight against what are the root causes of the violence, senseless dialog and goes through dialog and speaking to people because if you don't know the person who is in front of you then you will never make peace with them so
6:07 am
what we do is we organize debates in france every month on a specific theme that is very specific to the french civilization actually but we will extend it to europe, european way of life i think and that goes through making them come from the unions and maybe we have a national front partisan and a member of the muslim community and come from the opinions and views and we want the opposition and come on common ground and say oh, we agree on this, maybe we can try and implement this and after that what we want is to create the first step of them getting to know each other, getting to, you know, have an insight of what their lives look like because it's so different and maybe if we understand each other's lives maybe we will be more tolerant and maybe there
6:08 am
will be less violence. >> the syrian foreign minister is in moscow today to hold talks with counterparts sergei fedorov and to rory challenge to the bureau in moscow and what do the syrians want to hear from the russians, rory in. >> well, he has been here for the last few days or so and has been talking to parliament and other political figures in russia and today he has the business end of his trip, a meeting with the russian minister sergei fedorov, what the two are going to be talking about is the what they call the antiterrorist campaign in syria and also how to try to progress the political settlement, the political settlement for syria that was agreed in vienna a week or two ago. on the issue the first part working out how to progress for
6:09 am
the settlements for syria is get the government and the opposition talking with each other. now that part of this process, this condition for it need to be established by the end of the year. damascus says that it has done as much as it can on that so far and has a list of representatives that it will put forward for these discussions with the opposition, it's now up to the opposition they say to come up with a list of representatives and a political platform which considering how desperate the opposition is in syria is going to be no easy task for them. the other thing i have been talking about of course is the incident with the downed russian jet and turkey's actions, now that relates to what these two are going to be discussing in terms of drawing up a list of what they call terrorist groups inside syria and there is of course the possibility that one or more of the groups that are
6:10 am
going to end up on this list are groups that turkey funds and supports in northern syria. >> one assumes however rory as far as mr. assad is concerned he would not be particularly happy if he had to or if he was pushed down the road of setting up some sort of dialog or a platform on which he could or he would have to be seen to be talking to the political arms if they exist of the various rebel groups operateing on the ground inside syria. >> reporter: well, it is pretty clear that he doesn't have too much choice about that because syria is now such an international game with so many different competing powers, trying to achieve their geo political aims inside that country and actually not much any more is in the control of president assad's hands so if
6:11 am
russia decides that it wants there to be a political solution for syria which involves talking to the opposition and also going down the line of a new constitution and a new election which by the way is exactly what was decided in vienna then i don't think mr. assad really has that much he can do and try and stop that. of course there is a way in which the whole process could be sabotaged along the way because there are many points at which this whole process can fall apart but at some point there is going to have to be a resolution and at some point there is going to have to be a political settlement and it's a question how long it takes and how much blood is spilled getting to that point. >> thank you, the united states has sanctions against more people and organizations it accuses of helping the government in syria and assets in the u.s. have been frozen and
