a judge in ecuador has suspended the recently imposed entry restrictions for venezuelans fleeing the deepening economic and political crisis earlier this month ecuador announced venezuelans needed to have a valid passport to get in the court order that means they'll be allowed in with just their id cards and that's just for the next forty five days though earlier ecuador opened a humanitarian corridor for venezuelans trying to reach and chile here is mariana sunshades with more from timbits in peru that is where tiger entry restrictions for venezuelans will be enforced. lifted to the past. it was a measure that had been implemented a few days ago and was banning. from. many of them
wanted to come here to. to find a residence here now that the united nations. refugee pleaded both. to lift the ban on entering without a passport will be in danger of saturday's. wants also to lift the ban because it affects. unable to get passports in their country even if critics say the measure will incentivize contributed to still come here to do and enter the country illegally. despite all the turmoil in venezuela the government on friday called on those fleeing the country to come home soon this is . what we are saying is that we welcome venezuela's who want to come home they are needed to come back we need them and they will see in a relatively short amount of time the outcome of our new economic plan. his stephen
gives expert on latin america reporter for the economist and he's on skype from caracas. it's a big ask people to come home right now isn't it i mean i know that's what the government has to say in the trying to find some unity but gosh that's difficult. yes i don't think the government has yet given people the real incentive to come home or move the incentive to leave the reason these people are leaving and we're talking a massive migration that is beginning to be compared to that my gratian in europe from from the middle east peace area the reason people are leaving is that. to have no future in terms of how much money they can. basic salary until september the first is less than one dollar a month now the government says it's going to put that up by thirty five times people are not sure whether that will really happen they're also terrible sure which isn't of them to fix the
a lot of people are leaving because they are on well on they want treatment yet difficult to persuade them to come back soon so then what do you think needs to be the government's next step i've taken the move of of the current state of change in accounting devaluing it that was obviously a fairly drastic move that needed to happen what do you do next because the problems you've just described seem very deep seated. yeah i mean what the government has done is sort of hard of walked most economists really say they have to do one of the things you have to do if you like inflation which is what got it currently prices are going up about the annualized rate is about one hundred percent what do you need to stop that one of the things you need to do is you need to. stop propping up your current issue and now the government has moved a long way to do that it actually did a devaluation of ninety six percent on friday i did it also has made the current
team all manageable by removing five steroids from it really make much difference to inflation what it really needs to do is bring back trust in the currency and how do you come to do that if you look at examples of people hyperinflation one of the most recent symbolic way you have to sort of peg your currency to a currency that people think the government cannot interfere with like the dollar that's involved we did not the government it is taking current to get something petro it's a crypto currency it in itself invented and the trouble is people trying to. reach that trade was sixty dollars the equivalent of one barrel of. let's say and what we said already had a new currency and they just just launched is pulling quite dramatically on the black market what do you think about the original response at the moment obviously there was a tightening of the borders now at least ecuador has changed its mind is the
approach the regional approach that's being taken helpful at the moment without love. well i mean i feel based in venezuela for three years and it's been extremely obvious that the way this is going to turn out what has been predicted is what's happening and that is that you get a migration when you have a country that's in the middle of a recession that a sort of war time like recession which will be up fifty percent or just with auction in g.d.p. and five as people get on the move now to long really the region has ignored now of course that paying attention because it's become that problem. i mean they're having a meeting of the nearest neighbors next week to try and come up with. a solution to this problem it's going to be really difficult for them just i think they're going to have to start providing humanitarian aid to a lot of people that are entering that countries that are not necessary for that
they also have the little problem particularly this is in brazil of a local happiness about people coming in and they say taking over or using all the result of social security presumption in northern brazil you know a small town will have a hospital that's designed for four thousand people and sudden you've got one hundred thousand venezuelans who are trying to use it so there are all sorts of problems yes the region is beginning to talk about it but it would have been a lot better if they'd seen this coming eighteen months ago masses and it cost even gets from the economist really good to talk to you thank you for your time. now the united states is cutting more than two hundred million dollars in aid from its programs in gaza and the west bank remember it had already withheld sixty five million dollars from u.n. relief works agency for the palestinian state department official said the money will be used issues that align with u.s. national interests and provide value. me to american taxpayers.
meanwhile at least one hundred eighty nine people have been injured on gaza's border with israel on friday the protests have been going on for months they've been called the great march of return israeli governments and some of the demonstrators as terrorists wanting to cross into israeli territory and to carry out attacks here in chance strapped with more from that border agent this is the twenty second week in a row that we've seen these protests on friday along the gaza israel border we've seen a lot of gas fired in the last couple of hours what sounds like live ammunition as well i think it's fair to say though that there are less people here this week than we have seen in recent weeks how massa says that the protesters have every right to continue these demonstrations and will continue them. until israel's near twelve year land air and sea blockade is lifted now so many people here we've been speaking to this speculation that one of the reasons why the protests the protests have been less this week is because we are expecting
a resumption of these talks being mediated by the egyptians in cairo between hamas the armed factions and israel israel denies that there is any direct conversation going on between them and how mass but we do know that the egyptians have been very keen i've been working very hard to get both parties to. agree to some sort of lasting cease fire here we also understand that fatah will be sending a delegation from ramallah to participate in those talks as well there are concerns that anything that is seen by either side as being a provocation could initiate another escalation in violence between hamas and israel and of course that would seriously jeopardize those talks in cairo they've been protests in the iraqi city of bastra demonstrators the calling on local authorities to provide access to clean drinking water for cities weeks of protests and for poor public services with health officials warning thousands of. excuse me

minister in charge of controversial asylum policies he had backed turbo to remain prime minister before friday's vote has been a lot of talk this week. about he saw people around in this building. and what just annoyed me to tell you. is the new generation of liberal leadership is where on your side australians are generally unhappy with what they see as a revolving door system of leadership scott morrison now faces the difficult task of uniting his party before facing the australian public in a federal election in less than a year before that barzan government which has a majority of just one seat is likely to have another electoral test. malcolm turnbull says he'll leave parliament soon triggering a byelection for his electorate kathy novak al jazeera sydney. still ahead for you on the news hour we'll meet one ranger refugees seeking justice
