a week. damaged to. a warning on climate change as a meeting without leaders from some of the world's west polluters. and the foreign language movie that could break new ground and also because race that's not so black and white. threats between venezuela and the united states are escalating just hours before a planned protest president nicolas maduro says he's ordered a quote revision of diplomatic relations with the u.s. that's in response to u.s. vice president mike pence declaring support for demonstrators and opposition leaders schalit palace reports. energized protest isn't caracas rally the a movement hoping to push the president from power. out with the usurper as unrest
happened last year our armed forces the country's soldiers many of them began to demonstrate their own happiness and today there are over four hundred officers in jail who have been tortured simply for raising their voices against the regime has broken the constitutional. venezuela's opposition has momentum over the weekend twenty seven soldiers rebelled against the government they were later detained by security forces. until monday they moved through crosses streets with pots and pans a statement that reverberated all the way to the white house by mike pence the vice president of the united states and on behalf of president donald trump and all the american people let me express the unwavering support of the united states is you the people of venezuela raise your voices in a call for freedom. nicolas maduro is a dictator with no legitimate claim to power he's never won the presidency in
a free and fair election and he's maintained his grip of power by imprisoning anyone who dares to oppose him while protesters and the opposition have a powerful enough vocal ally the juror countered with a t.v. a trace of his own he warned vandals who attempt to cultural seem to named off the role that sarah the late socialist politician a little member of that they're going to capture them all they all went to prison and that's some penalty for the fascists hard hand to hand of silda the jurors vice president then took direct aim at the u.s. base and that is simply because mr pence doesn't have a job now he wants to come and run venezuela handing out instructions on what should happen in venezuela openly calling for a coup d'etat in venezuela i will say it like the venezuelan people would say to you yankee go home. on wednesday the race or it will be challenged on the streets
it's the end of the story of the full of venezuela's military government in one thousand nine hundred fifty eight the opposition mocks it with nationwide matches but they say this year it's maturity who needs to go. ballasts al-jazeera. and tanya moore as the last american the best he says the planned protest are expected to be than just the country has ever seen it really seems like we may be seeing a perfect storm in venezuela here with this many rebellion there was yesterday among the military of which there has been very little so far and the protests that followed were centered in the western side of gattaca us which is the poorest sorry side of the city that part of the city did not really join on mass in the big demonstrations there were in twenty seventeen if they had maybe nick or nick also a little might not be in that position where he is today the government certainly fears any kind of a military uprising but it also fears
a total loss of support of the people from the poorer sections go out on the streets this could be a very significant problem from a douro and by all estimations that i'm hearing tomorrow may be the largest protest the country has a receipt it's a tough situation the military there because the moderate government has co-opted the generals there are an incredible number of generals and they've been given responsibility for everything from the oil industry to the distribution of food so the higher level officers have a very strong incentive to continue in power and to be to disdain to keep the government where it is the problem is that the economy is so disastrous that the rank and file members are suffering and they're definitely seeing their extended families who do not have any military benefits suffering a people who are going hungry so if you're a rank and file officer in the met as on military and you're seeing your cousins and your aunts and your grandparents suffering it becomes a much more serious issue. the wife of an anti-government activist arrested in

to gain more leverage in crucial talks with u.s. diplomats in qatar what we are today in my don't show it was a good dark forward be united states in the afghan government is doing to the taliban so the taliban or i think there come. out of that hibernation they are trying to carry on the same policy where do going to inflict damage to the african government and its international counterparts and talks are underway in doha where the taliban has a political office u.s. special representative for afghan peace zalmai is beating senior taliban members here the other way to find and to the war in afghanistan and establish a unity government the u.s. envoy recently told the region seeking help from allies including pakistan and in many ways the role of pakistan is key the u.s. negotiator ambassador. was just in pakistan for several days before he went to doha
and the pakistani prime minister imran khan is visiting doha as well it's not clear exactly what role pakistan is playing but they may be playing a newly positive role but peace won't be easy the taliban does not recognize the government in kabul and insists peace talks will only start when foreign troops leave afghanistan or. whether is next but still ahead on al jazeera mexico's president announces help for the port after dozens of people died trying to steal fuel from taps pipelines. i there we've got another storm system that's marching its way across north america
we look at the satellite picture we can see the cloud herro edging its way eastward as is that system begins to pull itself together in the north we'll see a fair amount of snow from it in the south a fair amount of rain and actually ahead of it it's going to be dragging winds up from the south so it will feel a little bit milder than it has been recently behind it though it's going to be cold at once more as the air digs down from canada so the top temperature in winnipeg will be shooting down minus twenty one will just be on much of a temperature that system still with us along that far eastern coast as we head through thursday but for the other coast along the west it should be falling enjoy fifteen there in san francisco now some of that wet weather across the u.s. also works its way a bit further south with so it's edging its way towards the yucatan peninsula for the day some rather heavy rain here ahead of it largely fine and dry for most of us maybe just the odd shower perhaps if you are lucky the wet weather that's been over parts of argentina has but instead we're seeing more showers just to the south of re i want to have the might hit us in rio but sao paolo is looking pretty wet not
only on wednesday but also on thursday to to the north of all of that plenty of showers across the amazonian basin as you'd expect at this time of year some of them pushing a little bit further towards the west now through parts of peru as well for those they. shoot films of hope. and inspiration. a series of short stories that highlight the human triumph against the odds. a good four to four hundred years that was your goal here to be one. save your bed are on your bed because if that everybody one al-jazeera selects.
welcome back. a reminder about top stories this hour venezuela's president nicolas maduro says he has ordered a revision of diplomatic relations with the u.s. that's in response to vice president mike pence declaring support the opposition leader. who is calling on venezuelans to protest on wednesday. the wife of an anti-government activists arrested in sudan has told al-jazeera she's had no word on her husband's whereabouts sudanese american would lundahl it was detained six days ago. in the us to help free him. a car bombing has killed at least one person and injured fourteen others in the syrian city of latakia or authorities found a second device at the scene and defused it just before it was due to blow up the
attack comes only a few days after another explosion hit damascus apparently targeting security officials say no one has more from beirut in neighboring lebanon. two bomb attacks in the past three days the bombings in government controlled territories tuesday's bombing in sunday's bombing in damascus south of the syrian capital that attack was believed to have been a targeted assassination a security personality it is still not clear whether or not he was injured or killed it is very hard to get information out of government controlled territories but the bombings are really an indication that the situation is still not stable but the question is how is this happening after the government managed to push the opposition push away from areas under their control last year they've they managed to regain a lot of territory pushing the rebels up to the north so how can the opposition operate behind rebel lines so it calls really into question the ability of the
government to maintain security in sixty percent of the territories it controls but if you watch the area and state television analysts immediately predicted that this there's a new phase in the conflict they're talking about the possibility of more bombings and and that the situation is going to destabilize further now many in the opposition will say this is the government's way of keeping people on their side to scare them and to tell them that your best option is to continue to support us because public discontent discontent really is growing inside government controlled territories because the government has been unable to provide them with fuel prices are rising and there are no jobs so it's a really a very very difficult situation for the government and yes they control sixty percent of the country but they still do not have the legitimacy from the outside world and clearly from these attacks not all is well. the united states senate is likely to vote this week on bills that if possed could end the month long partial
government shutdown it's the longest in u.s. history with hundreds of thousands of workers going without a paycheck the political deadlock began over funding for president trump's proposed wall along the border with mexico mike hanna has more from washington d.c. the clerk will read a communication to the senate in this largely partisan battle the faint flicker of a compromise senate leaders agreed to put two competing bills to the vote on thursday on saturday president trop rolled out a bold comprehensive offer one drawn up by republicans mirrors the suggestion made by president trump this weekend the plan includes five point seven billion dollars providing funding for the beria along with temporary protection for those in the deferred action for childhood arrivals program. and a three year extension of temporary protected status a proposal. president trump that will consider here in the senate is the only proposal the only one currently before us that can be signed by the president and
immediately reopen the government. but the proposal has been rejected by the democratic party leadership the president and his team have tried to spin this proposal as a reasonable compromise with concessions to democrats that defies credulity the second bill is similar to those passed by the democrat controlled house. which provides short term funding for the department's now shut down but excludes any provision for the wall this would require the backing up at least thirteen republican senators to meet the sixty vote threshold ny the bill is likely to pass the senate despite another plea by the leader of the house open government open the government let's talk cannot have the president and the time he has an objection to say i'll shut down the government until you come to my way of thinking and as the shutdown drags on a public plea by the f.b.i.
agents association the f.b.i. needs to be fully funded so that we can do our jobs stop the terrorist attacks prevent criminal activity arrest bad guys that's what we do. we need to do that to keep this country safe we want our. paychecks are due at the end of the week but yet again all indications are that more than eight hundred thousand government employees once again not receive them mike hanna al-jazeera washington mexico's president mandela but all has responded to last week's pipeline blast with social reforms ninety six people were killed while illegally gathering fuel on friday a mentor said he would help poor areas where people were more likely to still feel feel he said he will focus on jobs pensions and credit for foreigners than your palo reports from in central mexico. president lopez over those visits by mexico
was very well received several thousand people came to see him speech of course he spoke in the wake of that large explosion that took place just last week that left more than ninety people dead now the president spoke about the need for creating jobs creating opportunities and investing in education to lessen the dependency that many communities have on stolen fuel to give you some context of where we are we're near a pipeline that's become very popular among the oil oil thieves so popular that military personnel are keeping a constant presence here to make sure that people don't come out here to tap more more fuel pipelines and that's part of the problem if you will is transported from one end of the country to another via fuel pipelines that are easily tout they're very susceptible to oil thieves how susceptible in two thousand and eighteen the government reported more than fourteen thousand illicit taps on fuel pipelines and again this is not a new problem with this is a problem that the new mexican president is being forced to tackle is being forced
to find a solution to on december first of last year the president announced the deployment of somewhere around thirty two thousand military personnel to guard sections of pipeline and guard refineries that are considered as being vulnerable to thieves the actual the issue of fuel as it's believed to have been contributed to as much as seven point four billion dollars in revenue losses over the last three years so this is quite a big problem and it is at the moment quite a hot topic while brazil's new president has laid out the welcome mat for big business and major investors on day one of the wild economic forum in davos climate change and the digital revolution are among some of the major issues on the table but the focus has also been on some of the big names missing. reports from. a chill has settled over down ass and that's not just the weather leaders of some of the world's biggest economies china the united states france and the u.k.
have stayed away to find crises at home crises fueled by nationalism populism and those left behind by globalization it is everything the world economic forum is supposed to stand against and yet this year's big ticket visitor is brazil's new president far right nationalist valsin r.-o. here to launch what he calls a new brazil then there was a big. we intend to reduce the size of the residence state apparatus and carry out a form such as the social security reform tax reform we wish to relieve those who produce and undertake business and projects from the weight of a heavy state that's good news for business less so for those who depend on state aid it's an odd look for an annual gathering traditionally built on bridging divides it does say that there's a bit of a shift and that those major leading democracies in the world are exhausted tied in
