general feeling among survivors is no he didn't go far enough it was important that the pope described sexual abuse as a quote repugnant crime acknowledging that of course it does have a long lasting effect on many of the victims but he didn't as many survivors won't say exactly what the church will do in terms of bringing those guilty of sexual abuse to justice of handing over potentially vast quantities of church documents and papers to legal also if he's legal entities in many of the countries that may be affected by clerical abuse also what's going to happen to senior figures within the church who are pretty embroiled in allegations of covering up sexual abuse over the years. russian opposition leader alexina vani and one of president putin's most vocal critic has been arrested outside his home in moscow and army spokeswoman said on twitter he is been taken to a local police station the reason for his detention is still unclear myanmar's range of refugees have been holding peaceful protests in neighboring bangladesh

it was promoted as a masterpiece of the saudi crown prince its vision plans to sell shares in state owned oil giant around co have been postponed so where does this leave saudi arabia's efforts to raise money and aversive by its economy this is inside story. hello welcome to the program i'm richelle carey saudi arabia has reportedly delayed its plans tillis shares have been state owned oil company ram co on the stock
2:22 am
market media reports say the initial public offering has been postponed indefinitely but the saudi government has disputed this the energy minister collett off ali says the government is committed to conducting the i.p.o. at the appropriate circumstances and time the plan to float around five percent of aramco was expected to be the world's largest stock sale and it lies at the heart of crown prince mohamad instalments vision to transform the economy of the government is faced widespread criticism for its crackdown on dissent and its military campaign and yemen so why is aramco important that was set up more than eighty five years ago and his sense become the largest oil and gas company in the world and manages the kingdom's large oil reserves of over three hundred billion barrels its average daily crude production is ten point two million barrels a day but there's no clear data on how much the company is worth some analysts say
2:23 am
it could be valued at one point two trillion dollars significantly lower than the official figure of two trillion dollars. as we have mentioned aramco is at the center of the crown prince's reforms well to be implemented by two thousand and thirty the vision aims to diversify the saudi economy and make it less dependent on oil and includes building the world's largest solver and wealth fund and a five hundred billion dollar economic city called the oem but in a move that was widely criticized last year the saudi crown prince arrested dozens of singer members of the world family government ministers and businessmen and what he said was an anti-corruption drive most were released after giving up their assets or paying billions of dollars the crown prince has also pledged to return saudi arabia to what he calls a moderate islam women have been allowed to drive and attend sporting events and then almost forty year ban on cinemas and cultural events hasn't it let's bring in our panel here in doha masood so here it director of the gulf study center of qatar
2:24 am
university in washington d.c. mohamed chicago a professor of conflict resolution of george mason university and in singapore and joining us on skype james dorsey he is a senior fellow at the s. rajaratnam school of international studies at nanyang technological in a verse city a welcome to all of you thank you for joining me i'm actually going to start with the first question with all of you and i'll go to you first issue are you surprised by this delay. to be honest i'm not surprised of the the city has been now reported about the change of the plan about their article and i would like actually to put all of this into. real context. we have to remember that the whole issue of iran who is coming in a wide perspective with the political context which started with the emerging or after the death of concoct a lie and the merging of kings and money from the day one of that. era it was clear
2:25 am
that disarmament is will be the next king after his father and since that time there was focus on two main issues one is you know the church that is the need the the debate about political reform need to be stopped and need to be redirected and to be directed to need you need to create to bring to present or to suggest a new topic for the debate and that was the political economist reform and the core of the economic reform was the story and the and other details which came which basically after that story so i think. there is nothing to be surprised about if we remember that this is. the whole issue is about marking there are concerned man one hundred settlement of the there is something important they are doing in the country and the main titles political economic reform to lead and to
2:26 am
to consider the. unimportant compared with the previous kings ok we're going to take into some of the reason she touched on on some of them that are you surprised that this has been delayed indefinitely. no i'm not and i think what has happened so far in deciding the fate of the amp or i p or is a short. like short picture for or a token of asking the big question to what extent it reflects the dialogue of crown prince mohammed as a man and i think that is a difference between expectations and the know so positive reality and i think back in two thousand and sixteen when he announced this deal he was building his momentum to become a future king and therefore now the momentum is waning away he and others in rio
2:27 am
expected to generate a clist one hundred billion dollars of the five percent share of the company however to the best scenario best case scenario analysts are predicting no more than between fifty and seventy five billion dollars so i think there is a mismatch between what the premise and man for seeing is for his reform plan and his twenty thirty vision and do real assessment of world markets in terms of approaching or kind of keeping distance from this be or and i think there is also the political uncertainty and most of the vote in or the kind of the adventure is decided by many summit in yemen and libya annan also of his of iran have also shadow this and have added to this and so that sort of the global investors are now taken making
2:28 am
a second reflection on whether to go forward toward this i for four or sort of. we should also add that the fluctuation of the oil market and now the search for alternative energy is not on the side of the out on the guy paul at the present time ok. well come back to some of those issues that. james i suspect i know your answer to whether or not you're surprised because muhammad actually used the word that you have written about you said he meaning muhammad been someone has been very good at creating expectations but not as good at managing expectations you think that's appropriate and appropriate description for how this is all played out in d we've known for a considerable period of time that the i.p.o. at very best would be of late and may not ever happen the problem with all of this is that mohamed bin so mom has indeed been very good at creating expectations but if you look at the last several months multiple incidents whether it's the.
2:29 am
arrest of human rights activists whether it's various incidents in yemen with the killing of the deaths of children and women and other civilians or the spat with canada mohamed bin selma and the saudis have been reactive they've been behind the car in for instead of in front of the cart so with other words if you're clear that this i.p.o. is not going to happen within the timeframe that you initially had announced that you were going to be strongest if you were up front with managing the publicity and the the expectations in terms of the delay and what's going to happen mohamed some of them some of the saudis have not been able to do that. measure you mentioned this a little bit do you think that this is more of a. financial and economic failing or is this
2:30 am
a political failing or or that the two enter twined when you're talking about saudi arabia. actually it is both because colonel prince mohammed bin sandman wanted to enter his his air of being a king with the successes in hand and that means basically he wanted as my colleagues were mentioning he presented an amazing expectation and he was aiming or hoping maybe hoping that some of this expectational will be achieved while he can out of prince crown prince and then while after that view he becomes a prince a king you know he will have some achievements in hand as we see as we see the situation the whole thing is coming to from the gate of political change i mean they wanted the political change that political change has two main pillars one is the size of the storm in yemen which we saw the consequences of that and how much it's costing and we show the other bell or what's basically the economy changes
2:31 am
inside saudi arabia let's remember the two main pillars is being decided top down basically the these are not a decision which should lie on a popular demands of course there was some anger against iran and yemen maybe people they wanted the. economy to form but i'm not sure they wanted these things as we were presented by the monarch and so they did it so basically what we see what we are seeing so far is some you know decision were made in a political economic context assuming those will bring some changes or some achievements those will help crown prince i'm not sure that all of this actually you know have brought any kind of change or a serious change actually with the criticism that the kingdom is facing women whom are rights organization and from even the united states about what's happening in saudi arabia these kind of achievements. apparently are disappearing and we are
2:32 am
witnessing another day lament that they condemn is facing and i think the decision made in. through the last few days is are the more you know curt except you ation to the situation was or was or do was get sick so i think yeah ok jefferson i want to bring it into this conversation so when you want to launch an i.p.o. you're you're inviting the world into your home into your books into a level of scrutiny that saudi arabia has never really faced or had to answer to anyone for do you think that they are prepared for that mohammed. well it depends on when we ask this question i remember back in two of those and sixteen early two thousand and seventeen there was an influx of phone on c. and c. or was coming from all over the world to riyadh and some of the matter with for two to three days to meet the representatives of course or to me that was the attacks
2:33 am
or the highest level of this i've because that has created a lot of vibration in world markets but now i don't think that many c.e.o.'s would go to searching for that median or the discussion i would like also to add that if we consider that this kind of yes or no question to whether there will be an i.p.o. it reflects badly on the political economy of saudi arabia and the income advancement and let me also add another factor that is now kind of hindering the momentum which is how mcgoohan solomon was good articulate in what they call symbolic politics a lot of symbolism a lot of predictions a lot of expectations however when it comes to the delivery or the of these promises it seems that he cannot achieve much let alone that the next twelve months between now and two thousand and thirty not going to keep the same vibration or the
2:34 am
same strength that he hoped for therefore i think it's a matter of bad management and also not being aware that the global markets can have a different assessment in other words the difference between an inside out expectation and an outside in a system and of what can they deliver or cannot so james do you think that what mohamed describing is mohamed bin sol months later said style being. is it naive is it hubris what how would you describe it. well i think it's not thought through let me just say a couple of things which in response to what was just said by both speakers this much job is going to allow me i want to just fine tune what he said mohammed bin some is about economic and social change in saudi arabia not about political change
2:35 am
and he's about geo political change in the region i think one of the problems with the approach and in the sense pointed out been some on this that there's a difference between seen on c.s. bankers fund managers willing to come in and people who are direct foreign direct investment we've seen very little of the latter and much of what has been some on wants to achieve depends not only on funding but also on foreign direct investment the third point i'd like to make is that while we're talking about the delay of the of an i.p.o. an i.p.o. is not the only alternative or the only option available to them some there is also the option of a private equity sale for example to the chinese now that would invent the ways the easier it would not give. saudi arabia the publicity and everything
2:36 am
that goes with an i.p.o. but we would get the funding and a lot less questions would be asked or at least those questions would be asked in private rather than in public shame so i want to follow up on that do you think that that's something that. can't seem to have been someone and while family actually really considering another option besides this i.p.o. or is there did they have to say face. well the optional bill of the night of the private equity sale particularly to the chinese has been touted for significant period of time and the chinese have actually hinted that they may be interested in that so i think it isn't really a real option and in many ways that is a way to save face because what it is is selling the state in the company well that you do that publicly or privately in that sense doesn't really matter.
2:37 am
mazumdar what role did the u.s. and donald trump perhaps and virtually play in and causing these challenges these programs and what i mean by that donald trump obviously was excited about the i.p.o. he tweeted about it except our center but he's also put pressure on saudi arabia to pump more oil that means cheaper crude oil prices that lowers the valuation of the company was there a connection there. you know we may say there is a connection between what was happening so that i've been in the last. two three years and especially after the time came to poet i think the connection was was made between the saudi arabia and american the station may indicate the relations between all of that but i do agree with you that the contradiction the contradiction within the american foreign policy towards so the idea bia is itself becoming a problematic to the to the saudis because basically they want to please the
2:38 am
americans but they cannot have the the revenue they expect and with the pressure on them to you know to sell more and. take into consideration the price is down as well and pleasing the u.s. on a couple of different fronts because there's the there's a financial front there's the oil front there's economics and then there's also the human rights issues that what's happening in yemen civilians being bombed it seems said that that's coming more and more to the fore the forefront do you think that as this war in yemen continues to drag on there continues to be a public outcry about the alleged war crimes that are happening there the civilians that are get getting killed is that type of thing make launching an i.p.o. and being so public more difficult for saudi arabia. i think the cost of the human war with whether it's financially or politically is becoming
2:39 am
a real burn on the shoulders of so these and i think day by day this become problematic to the policy and to the even domestic politics of course we see sort of level of hypocrisy on american foreign policy towards what happened in yemen because they know we know that americans are involved in a way or other on that world whether on selling logistics or the weapons or weapons providing information regardless what is the. level of involvement we can discuss it with her ten percent twenty percent fifty percent but there is the involvement and they can become you know someone that can ask them what is about this level of involvement in that war if you are honest about the criticism of saudi arabia and the killing for the can in the families civilian. civilians so i think there is a real cost the saudis are paying concern a man and his son because of this war i think it is increasing rapidly i mean we
2:40 am
see now the increasing criticism about what happened in yemen but also we see i think internally i would argue that one of the reasons behind the the changing of decision about who is the war in yemen because. remember the saudis want to control that on oil because this is the only source of revenue share if they want to sell the shares of the goddess the percentage this means they would have another hand in that cake and they don't want anyone to be partner and that they want to have it for themselves and they don't want anyone to upset them or to annoy them how to spend money and tell the hunted all you know keanu let me ask you this a vision the vision twenty thirty there's there are valid critiques of it obviously but it's at the core of it as wanting to diversify your economy and not so bait dependent on oil that's that's a lot of because other countries have had that same goal that it's it's never that easy what is the biggest challenge why is this always so difficult for countries to
2:41 am
do to accomplish. well first there is merit in fortune for a an economic reform in the next twelve years but the question is how saudi arabia will proceed in implementing this informs apparently it is this idea of the versification of sectors and also moving toward technology. so there would like to have silicon valley and its own territory but the question is that now i think that if i cannot be put in a market why they own prices above seventy dollars three years ago oil price was just thirty five so i'm wondering when it can benefit from the eiffel and whether it is a solid investment in global markets so i'm left with the ironic question that probably we are just creating dreams also the other child
2:42 am
within saudi arabia is this a in the in a kind of intersect there or cross section reform or is just a top down reform where you have certain companies that are seeking or benefiting from this diversification while the bottom i know and now the unemployment rate stands at twelve point nine percent which is quite high and this is three years of that the announcement of the twenty thirty vision so i think that there are certain contradictions between what we plan what we publicize in front of cameras and whether we can push them toward full implementation let alone that it is also it seems to me that there is the element of micromanagement you have been cinnamon and he is friends who are trying to control the all economy reform and this is
2:43 am
not what kind of in orwell thought of a plan to move forward therefore if micromanagement doesn't help then when saudi arabia will open up to other approaches so in other words is there a real business model within the twenty thirty vision james are going to have than the last question here you cause you brought up a great point that social and political change or not nice are not really the same thing can saudi arabia launch a successful i.p.o. without having some sort of significant political change. i think we've got to be clear on what makes an i.p.o. successful in this case there were two issues one of the actual nomic issues including the valuation of the company which been some monthly two trillion dollars and which has been long questioned in that questioning of the of the valuation predates the pressure from president trump to with regard to the oil prices

perhaps the more that and go ahead and i think the way to look at this is this been someone was brilliant in creating expectations when he launched this in two thousand and thirty when he lifted the ban on women's driving when he introduced an entertainment industry he was brilliant in. could be having the high ground when we visit the united states and europe and was able to dominate the media with its myth and what we're seeing right now is exactly the opposite and that works against you and against the saudi chances ups. all right james that will be the final word thank you all for joining me in the i appreciate it michel it's a hairy mahama sure calley and james dorsey and thank you for watching it can see the program again any time if you get our website al-jazeera dot com you can also

and influence to ensure that this is done here in ireland and also around the world . live tinnies bachar in dublin forestay one of the pope's uday visit to ireland is coming to an end soon need tell us about the reception he's had so far and the reaction is to his comments about the sexual abuse scandal in the catholic church. with a really mixed feelings here in ireland about the pope's visit as you probably hear there's a massive concert going on behind me here croke park it's the climax of the first day of the pope's visit the culmination of several days of a conference call to the festival of families of course the pope's visit here is or . brings with it a tremendous amount of joy for believers around seventy percent of the population even today class themselves as being catholic although many of those who define themselves as culturally catholic because the religion is still very much part of

violence identity is still very much part of its d.n.a. but the country has changed in recent years especially since the last pope's visit here in one nine hundred seventy nine it's become increasingly more and more secular and also civil society has become increasingly more emboldened to are some serious questions about the church's conduct in the past particularly when it comes to allegations of abuse there are according to the church's own internal documents or than thirteen hundred priests that have been accused of abuse here since one nine hundred seventy five but very few convictions of people believe that the pope should have done more to bring those guilty to account he has as you said fallen short of an apology but what people here want to see are concrete steps to bring the guilty to justice. so tell us about what else is on the agenda of the pope's visit me. but he's only here in total for thirty one hours a busy first day as we've seen already momentarily he steps aside from all of the
