it is of course it is because this is at the end of the day a voluntary agreement it's a voluntary framework and the point is that it doesn't undermine it doesn't it doesn't interfere with the sovereignty of nation states when it comes to migration and that's terribly important because however big you are however small you are you want to be you want to be able to have some control over who's coming in and out of your country i want to be sure that it's safe so over time as this kind of works its way through and us politics change around the world surely some people will come back and maybe some some will leave but the reporting point is that the overwhelming majority of the world's countries have decided that there is now rushnell space to discuss migration that's the important thing because in the absence of this green and we were left to the kind of rather wild west extremes of the far left social media and the far right and all the fake news that's thrown into that mix which tended to run to the agenda now we've had a kind of sit down and they've teased out many of them very intractable issues around migration they're not easy as i'm sure the minister can attest migration
affects every country and every community is deeply concerned about it so finding a framework within which you can do that is extremely helpful. it's a pilgrim in africa you say that you are united as a continent about about the issue of migration and refugees but you know the criticism. advanced against the continent is basically it's political leadership. has been disconnected from reality and it is to blame for the situation had it not been for the poor governance poverty fish and sea autocracy people wouldn't ever have thought about moving elsewhere well well well that could be part of the reason many people in front we must also realize that there are other factors now that. we're getting movement of the people climate change for example you know and so these are new factors so even when you want to apportion blame.
reasons such as what he does it's not everywhere and i think progress has been made on the continent and ensuring that democracy becomes a way of people to choose. leadership in but as you member states as well as in sub regions of the african continent of course in the past we cannot avoid acknowledging that the challenges which. triggered movements were forced movements of people running away from the kind there were places called homes in state for some twenty states for peace and these . challenges we we have lived with over some time and i think there is also a realisation. among is the leadership of the continent to see it's time we stabilized the continent and made sure that our people are able to benefit from
the natural capital that this continent is in dog with and that can only be achieved when we were stability and people able to participate together and realizing the potential of their member states michel. an undocumented migrant who is watching us who's stranded in the middle of nowhere and wants to understand how this is going to positively affect his life what a child who has been arrested or detained what his family was trying to cross into from mexico to the u.s. what some of his family is trying to cross from syria turkey all the way towards europe is this deal providing some safeties and guarantees for them not to be arrested or mistreated in the future it's an excellent question and that's the one that we will have to work out through the implementation and the
devil lies in the details exactly so basically while this offers a framework the next step is how countries are going to implement it and that will be the biggest challenge so for example one of the objectives talks about providing alternatives to the tension working with civil society to actually development and to develop them so how will those also be carried out in practice governments will have to work with civil society to actually develop them so that children won't be detained and that's actually one of the objective is to work towards ending the detention of children. it also works at providing safe passages for migrants to be able to move regularly but this will also have to be developed and the other point that i also want to mention is the cities which levels of government need to also be involved besides the national level local and regional authorities play a key role and especially cities cities is actually where many of the migrants are also gaining access to services and just as currently. i'm back earlier with how
does a lot of the whole is the had the migration and border control of the moroccan ministry of interior and i asked him about the significance of the deal and what it means for morocco but also for africa. migration is a human matter it's not a problem it's not a mathematical equation it will happen anyway either we do. it in a safe regular and orderly manner or it's going to be done by the traficant and criminal groups so it's an opportunity for everybody to work in the same direction so that we can have. so that we can make migration. a choice not a constraint or an obligation for migrants local has always been a transit point for thousands of migrants from sub-saharan africa if europe decides one day because we see the past and the far right and the populous governments in there in europe gaining control as they decide one day to build towards what would
be the next step for morocco morocco has built a great deal of expertise because miracle was a country of origin country of transit and country of this to nation so we have differentiated our strategies. depending on what kind of migration we're talking about the last one was in twenty or twenty thousand thirteen with his majesty decided to grant the regularization for fifty thousand migrants there are enjoying our hospitality there are not there are contributing enriching our culture it's not a matter of blocking migrants it's a matter of how we can integrate migrants within our society through the messages to the global compact offers an opportunity for the international community to work in a positive way and make migration something positive rather than from think fearful leader as well the same time we have to be fair to those who are skeptical about the deal the people in europe or the united states of america who say that this is
a world where you have seventy million people forced out of their homes put in four million refugees half of them under the age of eighteen why do we have to pay the price for something we haven't created ourselves. very important question and i think it's a key question why we rightly support the rights of migrants the human rights of migrants and the rights of refugees and the rights of undocumented displaced undocumented people and those who've been displaced we also at our peril ignore the concerns of the host communities the people living in in places where migrants are coming to it's quite easy you know in one way to be part of the of the bandwagon supporting this and we should be but if at the same time we are callous or cruel to our fellow citizens and say time that you've got a job mate you need to recompute harder we're asking for trouble and i think that's actually what we're seeing in many parts of the world we're seeing
a reaction to people who are feeling fearful for the future fearful that a migrant by take their job in fact is probably not a migrant but a robot but they might blame the migrants. unless we address those fears head on unless we reassure people that this is a journey we need to make together that the future of so many countries the well being of so many countries and are not. we are in trouble to come to the african union has agreed on a vision twenty thirty and about the need to put an end to these the billeted conflicts wars and the issue of the people displaced in places like sub-saharan africa south sudan different parts of africa and your critics say basically you've failed to address the issues and then you come into the richest nations to provide you help or to police a world order that you fail to protect yourselves. if i respond to that our debts or so it's too bad. about this that i get you can understand you know you can't avoid. to discuss the
demographic impact of migration on their own that was doing states with you know all very well that it's done to print black. it's for its people you know a. prime minister on the demographic. figures are very poor and. needs a plan and here all the services education and all other social. services that acquired two to be provided to the people by government and so they. and primed for. arrivals influx of people for some strange words on a variant exactly you imagine especially for there was more economies. you've done your annual budgets and from noir you would this huge number of people coming with true grit. and that minority would occur to me to do them to be assessed in
a sustained what do you suggest do you think there needs to be. a international solidarity fund for example they need there is it for compatibility in short we are saying there was missions and they're sending missions there must be someone going to make it because you can do probably with the huge movements before the people on the move if there's me to engage them and i want you to know that's also my second question about. you're asking the world to do what you failed to do in terms of and put in anticipate lety conflicts and wars which was the main reason for the influx of thousands and i think we have as you had in mind was inside africa i totally agree with you but i think we have made a lot of progress in that regard and i think we have seen the country is now accepting democracy as a we all of. changing leadership and making sure that people.
able to exercise their right to choose people that are able to meet their aspirations in member states we may have challenges in a few countries of course but i think it's our desire ok one make sure that they are continent is stable and then we can explore the potential that lays on the african continent we love i think account for a huge number of metal capital untapped reserves unprecedented definitely michel i mean this is a fast moving political landscape worldwide if you look at the map of europe there are many countries like germany spain. and many other countries where the farmer it will definitely use this particular card of the compact here in america to advance their political political agendas if they come to power they will automatically pull out of this deal. is this something that could undermine the who the mammoth
task started in two thousand and sixteen and that. in this particular declaration. i don't think that if that does occur it will undermine the whole effort because the whole effort is still the whole of this would still be a minority of countries that in a sense would respond to i think as leonard was describing the fears of many people by schooling fearing that they're left out in fear fearing that's because of the economic downturn that happens in many countries almost ten years ago they have felt left out and so it's really important to counterpart the lism and to try to make sense of where people are coming from and to understand their fears but migrants are never escape to go for that migrants are part of the solution to many of the problems migrants actually are vibrance they enrich our societies and so that is actually what the world community is recognizing and also recognizing that this is part of our shared humanity i mean it's it is historical that we as
a species have always migrated so actually the. adoption today is only one step further and acknowledging what we've always done you know it's not an issue such as you know i'm trying to get so i spoke about the strains of the issue of my wishes not putting on. country is a self like africa europe still has a massive potential solid economy it was able sometimes to handle the issue of my question but africa would come to the top bring huge political and economic process and we've seen the pattern which is basically the increased number of refugees in those places it is something that is alarming for the international no visual my wish and i think you if i may have taken the glass half full approach to this thing the contrast i would suggest is that africa is one of the most dynamic parts of the world if not the most and what we've seen in asia what we've seen in china over the last twenty years and in india we will be seeing it over the next twenty years in africa as you add. a billion young people to the to the population as
megacities grow we're already seeing it there is an enormous energy in africa is enormous in economic growth of course there are problems undoubtedly there are conflicts to a conflict of course there are but the bigger picture i think is one of great optimism and one of the extraordinary things we see in west africa is the ecowas where you can travel visa free and get on the bus in one country and travel to four or five countries without anybody stopping you and this is not creating problems this is actually creating economic positives so long way that live and long may that be an example to the rest of the world unfortunately we're running out of time looking forward to talking to you in the near future about the implications of this major agreement that has been reached here in the city of marrakech in. morocco given campian go michelle a voice. dial thank you very much for being on the inside story with us and

hello i'm mr hall with the top stories on al-jazeera british prime minister tourism a has survived a challenge to have made a ship called by posse backbench as opposed to have a deal with the european union. pacific a finale she still faces widespread opposition in parliament to have a plan with just over three months to go before the u.k.'s juice and leave anderson's reports the result of thing about us. this evening is that they part of interest policy does have confidence. it was a convincing win two hundred votes against one hundred seventeen. the secret ballot behind closed doors in westminster was because of tories a maze handling of bricks it but she struck
a compromise with the conservative party in order to ensure keeping her job a promise not to stand in the next election but she made no reference to such a compromise when she emerged after the vote. so here is a new mission delivering the bricks it that people voted for bringing the country back together and building a country that truly works for everyone but some of those who voted against her say there's been irreparable damage. and agreement has divided the conservative party and divided the conservative party from. this means. we don't have a majority to govern the country earlier in the day there had been high drama the tension easing only slightly when conservative m.p.'s publicly declaring their support past the hundred fifty nine figure needed for her survival as party leader
cabinet ministers led the charge we already have a certain amount of volunteer volatility in the country because the negotiations going on with the e.u. think it is a huge mistake to add to that five volatility by having a leadership fight and all the confusion would go that. the prime minister had started her day in a defiant mood i will contest that vote with everything i've got she immediately cleared his schedule and headed off to parliament to face the opposition and if he wants a meaningful days i'll give him one twenty ninth of march two thousand and nineteen when we leave they are. here i mean. totally and absolutely unacceptable the prime minister not government have already been found to be in contempt of parliament her behavior today is just contemptuous of this policy. it's been an extraordinary few days in british politics to resume a return to downing street on wednesday night still in her job but at the risk of
turning herself into a lame duck prime minister and drew simmons al-jazeera london. the u.s. senate has gone against president donald trump on the war in yemen senators voting to begin discussing a resolution to end u.s. military support for the saudi amorality led coalition cia director whose briefly to leaders from the house of representatives on the killing of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi off to the cost five briefing many house members said they haven't heard anything to change their minds about matter several members of congress want to keep the yemen conflict separate from the anger over the killing of. president donald trump's former lawyer is going to pay.
