7:05 am
house. has been saying at this hour that there are efforts to discuss the human rights record. in the issue and that's one of the topics we're going to take up right now with our correspondent on a santos and on a first off trump has met with the filipino president that happened just a short while ago rigo to charity on the sidelines of this summit what can you tell us about that. while the two seem to have a really warm and for a deal relationship. we didn't expect anything other than that we expected them to actually kind of get a law last night they were also singing together at that so there was a very warm welcome at least from president the character president the two seem to be hitting it off ok what can you tell us about these this summit overall what are its main objectives. the main objectives as you know president to tear that ironed
7:06 am
out in his opening statement this morning with continued economic integration among the region he's really looking towards economic cooperation when you look at the ostia and it's a ten member state and it's the only other kind of economic. economy that's a regional economy outside of the european union and when you put together the productivity and the g.d.p. is of these ten member states they would actually fall into the top ten global economies so it is it se and this is a viable i checked of trading partner and but they the thing is they haven't been able to harness economic integration in the way that has so we anticipate that on the table for the next couple of days will be how to better improve economic integration in the region and the e.u. is also here looking towards improving economic trade relations with ok now a business leaders are of course interested in the economy now the activists
7:07 am
outside that summit that you are talking human rights did that come up at all in the talks between the two leaders. well we the human rights thing is kind of like the elephant in the room you know president to tara has been asked to new the writing up to this meeting are you going to discuss this with president trump do you anticipate president chum discussing this with you and he said no i think i'll tell him to lay off and he's also said that i don't think he'll discuss it with me if you recall a few months ago president trump had actually said to president in charge of via phone call you're doing a great job when it came to the to his war on drugs ok i want drugs and the extrajudicial killings that have come along with it where the yes topics being protested against outside the venue we saw some clashes with police the police how big were those demonstrations and the violence. today is actually the fifth
7:08 am
day of the protests these protesters promise to holland the visit of president donald trump and they're delivering on that promise today was the fifth day the organizers counted about nine thousand protesters coming in today it was the most shall we say the most violent of the scuffles today the police used their child chants water cannons and as reported by protesters a sonic device and it's a high frequency radio device that immobilized them it affected their hearing there's a reported fifty six injured from the clashes today and a santos for us from manila thanks very much for that and. all the white house has been saying that the president would be taking up the issue of human rights in that all let's go now to the deputy director of the asia division of human rights watch feel i'm kind joins us from bangkok thanks for being with us this morning president to territories war and drugs the extrajudicial killings of cost thousands
7:09 am
of lives do you see president trump addressing that in the no. it's pretty clear that the president do terror to is inflicted calamity of human rights abuses on the philippines is off the table in terms of president trump's priorities which is very disappointing but not surprising because president trump has repeatedly proven that he has an affinity for strongman rulers with well documented abuses against their citizens but the wider issue is we have these human rights abuses going on the philippines but rule of law is under attack in the philippines and rule of law fairness transparency predictability president rodrigo to tara has thrown those under the bus and that has wider significance and ramifications beyond human rights its business its investments and so any country particular united states that wants to have a meaningful sustainable mutually beneficial relationship with the philippines
7:10 am
should be absolutely concerned about what present a charity is doing to his country but apparently president trump is unsurprisingly going to look the other way ok now you say you said that the detector is thrown at you human rights and the rule of law under the bus your organization has been investigating to territories war on drugs what are your findings. our findings are that philippines national police and agents connected with that with the police are implicated in large numbers of the estimated more than twelve thousand sailings extradition executions linked to this war on drugs and president rodrigo to terror today has enthusiastically incited and instigated these killings now these killings could very well constitute crimes against humanity so this budding romance between trump and do terror today and this diplomatic trump is giving to terror today he's
7:11 am
dealing with a likely future crimes against humanity suspect so that makes this meeting even more. awkward and odious than it already is ok what about public support to territories war on drugs that have a lot of public support initially what are your research findings showing right now in terms of public backing for the war on drugs in the philippines. look it's unquestionable that the thirty eight percent of the filipino a lector it that voted to tear it say into power in may of twenty sixteen that he retains really strong support among second statement c. but we have to take a look at the numbers there you know president territories popularity ratings actually have started to decline since there has been very disturbing evidence that the philippines national police have been intentionally targeting children with the
7:12 am
extradition executions but the other issue is that you know there's a difference between popularity and legitimacy you know present terror tape was elected to support and defend and protect the rights in the philippine constitution number one of which is the right to life he has absolutely trashed that right and this is something that has profound implications for future rule of law in the philippines that will last far longer than he is time in office phelim time deputy director of the asia division of human rights watch thanks so much for being with us today. we're going over to helen now and lenders are set to decide the fate of venezuela's very beleaguered economy that's right brown we've got two major meetings on the agenda the first in the capital caracas to focus on restructuring the country's crippling debt the second meeting of bond holders in new york that could result in an official announcement at the country has defaulted on its debt
7:13 am
so what's going on let's take a look at the numbers then because the government debt currently amounts to one hundred and fifty billion dollars which is certainly a thorn in the side of the cash strapped socialist need a ship now last week the country's state owned oil company p.t. vs a reportedly made a crucial one point one billion payment on a bond but unfortunately it was overdue so that ended up triggering fears that defaults could follow and venezuela has one of the world's largest export is of oil but plummeting oil prices and mismanagement have crippled the country inflation has absolutely sky rocketed as a result we're talking about a staggering figure of seven hundred and twenty percent now the crisis has spread to all sectors of the economy one in four people and now without a job and food a medical shortage is in the country well they've just become the norm. banknote it symbolizes the magnitude of venezuela's economic crisis. this month the country's
7:14 am
president unveiled the one hundred thousand dollars bill it's worth about two dollars. a year ago the one hundred dollars bill was the country's largest but inflation has skyrocketed the only thing growing in venezuela these days some jest is the number of zeros on the banknotes everything else like food and medical supplies continues to shrink lack of hard currency has left the government unable to pay for imports. the country's debt has become unsustainable president nicolas maduro is hoping to convince foreign creditors of his proposals for restructuring it. out of him but i'm sure the investors of the world the holders of venezuelan debt i have the moral to summon him on nov thirteenth to correct and begin a process of refinancing and renegotiation of the external debt.
7:15 am
he hopes creditors will extend repayment deadlines lower interest rates and even agree to cancel debt altogether if no arrangement can be reached the country faces bankruptcy cutting it off from financial markets and unable to borrow more money meanwhile for ordinary venezuelans the suffering continues. the co-op twenty three climate conference taking place in bonn is entering into its second week the country's meeting coming up with a rulebook to implement the paris climate deal to keep global warming within two degrees now one of the countries not at the table is taiwan that's because it's not a member of the united nations framework convention of climate change but that is certainly not to say that the island hasn't experienced first hand the effects of climate changes such as subject to frequent typhoons so how is taiwan planning on cleaning up its energy act. severe storms and flooding most recently in
7:16 am
october this year alone taiwan has been battered by extreme weather events many experts see this is a sign of climate change in action in response the government wants to boost renewable energy generation capacity is being ramped up in wind and solar power production until now these renewables have only played a minor role in taiwan's energy mix so there's much catching up to do. by twenty twenty five the government wants solar energy to supply ten percent of the country's electricity needs. wind energy is slated to cover five percent of demand . and it's hoped hydropower biomass and geothermal energy will take taiwan's green energy share to twenty percent the aim is to phase out the country's nuclear power stations the focus of constant protests. since japan's fukushima plant meltdown taiwanese have lost their faith in nuclear. but eighty percent of taiwan's
7:17 am
electricity would continue to come from fossil fuels in particular imported coal. so reducing greenhouse gas emissions will remain a major challenge time ones but capita c o two emissions are extremely high. and they are in the program i'll be talking to taiwan's minister of the environment . in a hurry joining me in the studio in just about an hour's time now is back of it brian hell of the state of the news still to come on the show german fighter pilots train with their israeli colleagues taking part in blue flag exercises steve in the symbolism. take a look at some of the other stories making the news at this hour slovenian president who has been re-elected for a second term after winning a runoff on sunday he beat us challenger marion charites with fifty three percent of the vote though the role is largely ceremonial the president has the power to

7:19 am
arabia as well saying he feared there was a plot to kill him back home his moves have raised many questions in lebanon and some believe that we'll get the full story only one theory is back in beirut. the former prime minister insists his resignation and his stay in saudi arabia are voluntary but he says he remains worried about his safety back home. and a home i'm free here in saudi arabia if i wanted to leave i could do so tomorrow but do i want to doand i have to protect my family. but many lebanese officials including president michel owen aren't convinced harry reid's free to do what he wants the president's office said saudi arabia may be violating international treaties with its treatment of lebanon's leda viewers in lebanon scoured the resigning prime minister's interview for clues about his condition. we

. german and israeli warplanes operating side by side in the jewish state a first for the two countries from an air base in israel's negev desert it's a historic moment taking place more than seventy years after the holocaust blue flag is a bi annual air force exercise and this year's is the largest israel has ever held for air base commander colonel itamar the sight of german and israeli pilots working together is deeply moving for security reasons we're not allowed to reveal his face or full name. i think that the us is that we cannot change it but that the relationship between the german air force and israel and germany is based on trust is based on understanding germany is joined by france and india as first timers to blue flag they'll perform combat air maneuvers for two weeks over
7:22 am
the negev another israeli air force squadron will act as a simulated enemy force. the biggest challenge here in israel is dealing with much smaller aspace than we're used to in germany for even maneuvers or regular flight operations. and then there are different countries who operate differently than we are used to. flight from the not. for the one hundred twenty five german airmen accompanying their six year old fighters the training operation is a unique opportunity and an honor it has as much to do with german israeli diplomatic relations and alliance building as it does with military readiness. colonel itamar says the joint training exercise is a chance for israel to build a coalition with those participating he doesn't have a specific enemy in mind to confront but global threats in general the blue flag exercise is also a chance for israel to demonstrate its long list of allies. ok we're back with our

u.s. president all from has met his philippines counterpart but we go to terror tape hundreds of protesters descended on a regional summit in the noa attended by the two leaders. well it was two years ago today that coordinated terrorist attacks left one hundred thirty people dead in paris you're a football stadium in cafes and of course of a concert hall francis today remembering those who lost their lives one survivor of the massacre tells e.w. how his life has changed since that tragic night. whenever christopher modahl walks past this place the memories come flooding back what happened here on nov thirteenth two thousand and fifteen changed his life forever ever since that day the battle plan has taken on a new meaning for him. to get. i'm very strongly attached to this place
7:32 am
because it's in a good way. it's as if the better clan had a soul and protected me so i like coming here because it's reassuring. and makes me think and remember what happened with this illness on the senior. christoph barricaded himself into a room behind the stage when the terrorists started shooting that decision saved his life he was at the concert with two friends one of them died during the attack he still finds it difficult talking about what happened and was haunted by what he had experienced for months after was this question. dramatic stress disorder. but i was incredibly tense and every little sound made me jump. i was playing by flashbacks and kept seeing images from that night hearing the sounds and smelling those horrible smells so they get apologetic and. christoph went to therapy to help
7:33 am
him come to terms with his experience instead of shutting himself away at home he went out more so than before he wanted to feel alive they stood to use mean that night in november is forever a part of him they are complex. as a survivor you feel guilty that others had to die while you got away with your life now. these tattoos are like my own gunshot. they show that i was there that night and who i am. things are better now and still life for the forty one year old will never be the same again also in a good way. i'm much more willing to take a leap now that. i've only been with my girlfriend for seven months and we're already talking about moving in together and having a child. i would have been much more hesitant to do that two years ago.
7:34 am
but now i'm thinking seize the day because. you need to go for things if there's a chance they will make you happy. that. kristoff things france has stood his ground against the threat of terrorism people are sticking together and not letting themselves be divided even after further attacks yet in one respect he says the terrorists have won. the most france has restricted civil liberties. first by maintaining the state of emergency for so long. and then by enshrining many of those extra police powers and. in a way that's a victory for the terrorists or because they want to frighten us and make us give up some of our civil rights to do is. that.
7:35 am
this office more frightened than he was before frightened that he could lose another friend relative to terrorism even more reason he says to live every minute of every day. well over the past week we've been reporting from the united nations climate change summit currently under way in the german city of boston now the big topic on the agenda there is reducing c o two emissions worldwide today we'll be looking at india a nation heavily reliant on coal the dirtiest of also fuels as a source of more than half of india's electricity production our india correspondence on your phone the car visited the heart of india's coal belt that's in the east of the country now mining here has been disastrous for the environment and also for the people who depend on it for their livelihoods. somebody's mother who is seventeen years old. she scavengers in the coal mines of
7:36 am
tidy up. her brother ship is just nine. to begin work at dawn a pretty it's fraught with dangers. the corn has to be hacked out of exposed scenes. once ship them are badly injured himself while working. in the open cold pit is one hundred fifty meters deep. suffer three makes four to five trips each day. just watch out for the police to trace them away and confiscate the cult. tries name i don't have a choice i have to do this work my parents are illiterate they've worked as laborers all their lives they can't do anything else.
7:37 am
so i try to help them by owning money i really don't like the work my heart is and . a few hours of work which is the equivalent of three euros that's more than what people earn here as day laborers of some thirty thousand people workers called scavengers. but they pay a heavy price. burning roll call releases toxic smoke and gases causing widespread as well. and respiratory illnesses in the area. carriers since the top one of the world's largest coal reserves. the try again to open pits and deep mines here account for a quarter of india's coal production. but the cone is also on fire. dozens of places below the ground some have been smoldering for more than one hundred years when underground mining first began most fires ignited spontaneously
7:38 am
when minerals in the expose call heat up. continued mining at the surface has opened up cracks that feed oxygen to the flames. the resulting toxic emissions have devastated the environment. the coal fires have destroyed houses and triggered landslides. the dangers are evident inside the trees that. she visits her neighborhood pretty muddy or not the fire is breaking through the earth. house is falling apart. and there you go i think scared in my own home everyone scared the ground we cave in that their homes may be buried. there's no guarantee looking at this you realize how critical the situation is. believe in died because of coal. coal can make them great but it can also ruin
7:39 am
them. really. i told him the priest family has experienced that first hand. her father is unwell and can't work out how mother should be used to work in the cold light still. she lost an eye because of exposure to toxic gases she's worried her daughter could meet a similar fate. he is just ordinary so young there are bad people in the gold mines she can get seriously injured there. are people we simply can't afford medical treatment. we're going to have her son of god that one has been campaigning for the rights of illegal cold workers like something three of the rubble he says india is paying a huge human cost in its dash because. there's going to just doesn't bother so right now paul is very important it is very important for the development there
7:40 am
were never my subsidies too short to go were not there but with them and i had the cost of these people. among the human beings who are going to be deprived of what are we when there is some of the other making order living that will also go. over trees determined to find a way out of the gold mines. scavenging also helps pay for college. she goes there every day after work to ensure her dreams of getting a good job. don't go up in smoke. let's bring in now the author of that reports on your phone like are joining us from delhi good morning to you sonia very emotional report there about trade and the many people like her and the indian government has had plans to move more than one hundred thousand people away from the coalfields house i've come
7:41 am
a long. hi brian that's right you know indian prime minister narendra modi said last year that he's keen to see an increase in the faithful being moved away from those coal mines injury or he says that will help to douse the underground coal fires as well as open up access to further reserves of premium coal but i have to say it's been slow going the state run company that runs that coal mine in sharia has so far moved only about ten thousand people from areas that are you know acutely threatened by the fires they've been moved about twelve kilometers away from chara in concrete tower blocks now i spoke to some of those people who'd been resettled and many of them were quite angry they said you know the new place is very poorly connected there too far away from the place where they earn their livelihood there are no jobs there are no schools no water no power so i think a lot of people injury or remain wary of those resettlement plans you know coal is
7:42 am
of course as you reported a main part of the country's power equation what's behind the drive for more ever more electricity in india. well quite simply development you know india's energy needs are simply staggering the country's economy is expanding rapidly industrializing ever more people are moving from rural areas to urban areas they need new roads buildings cause so i think the demand for energy is growing substantially and on the other hand india faces a massive shortfall when it comes to providing electricity to its one point two five billion people an estimated two hundred fifty million indians live without electricity millions more do get electricity but only intermittently from the from the aging grid so i think india faces huge challenges it needs to provide generate more electricity simply to fuel its economic growth and also lift millions of
7:43 am
people out of poverty and what does it mean for the estimates of coal demand are they as big now as they were a couple of years ago well that's actually interesting you know india this year actually canceled plans to build nearly fourteen gigawatts of coal fired power plants in the early planning stages now that was driven partially by a crash in solar terrace but experts here say that india may not require coal fired power plants for at least a decade because the existing plants are running below capacity now that's of course good news it's been hailed by some environmentalists because india of course is the world's third largest carbon polluter we've also seen choking pollution in many indian cities but at the same time their energy experts in india who warn that you know this doesn't mean india's going to stop burning coal overnight india still remains the world's third largest coal producer it plans to double its coal output
7:44 am
by the year twenty twenty so i don't think coal is going to disappear anytime soon from india's energy mix song in the car for us this morning with that story thanks so much for the story and for the interview this morning sir. let's get a global view on that story now by bringing in our correspondent sonia daintree is covering the climate conference for us in bonn sagna it's been one year since the last climate conference has there been progress on on meeting the guidelines on all of the pledges. right so that's the so-called rulebook the folks attending the conference this year have been working on and certainly there has been progress there have been very productive discussions in this first week of the two week conference we're at that sort of halfway point where there is
7:45 am
now a desire to really take those discussions and transform them into actionable policies ok talking about india specifically and translating promises to policies to action you know has that country met the goals are under the paris accords and that it's agreed to well the goals that it's set are still down the line but it is making progress towards those goals in fact i just saw some figures that india for last year has reduced its total emissions. about to about two percent less than the previous year so last year sorry the year before was six percent increase in emissions and last year was a two percent increase in emissions so it does seem to be leveling off but there's
7:46 am
still plenty of work to be done and what can india do to to move farther along on the path to the filling its pledges as we heard from delhi there after china the us in the u. it's the biggest c o two producer. yes coal especially is a big issue in india it needs to phase out coal as. the curse said though that doesn't look like it's likely to happen however things can change and that's really what it's about is increasing that ambition to move toward. a de carbon ization and move more quickly and yesterday arnold schwarzenegger was speaking at a side event and he was saying we need to be talking about the hundreds of thousands of people who are suffering health impacts and even dying as a result of air pollution because it's really the same issue was what he was saying if we are able to phase out coal if we're able to decarbonise our energy sectors
7:47 am
