this is the first foreign trip to be made by president obama bashir since those protests that have erupted in his country escalated over the past few weeks the fact that he chose to visit qatar is telling and what to him have a strong history between them. sponsored and host of the darfur peace talks for example is invested or made billions of dollars worth of investments over the years and often there has been an alignment between qataris vision for the region when it comes to significant issues like for example palestine and that's of sudan as well speaking to our jazeera the sudanese foreign minister the this was or he described the meeting between president bashir and i mean going from a as a brotherly meeting he said that they would discuss regional issues and that the protests in sudan were too small of a topic to be the focus of these bilateral discussions having said that however they are significance protests they are the longest protests sort of taken place
since she came to power roughly thirty years ago we are talking about more than forty people killed widespread condemnation from around the world as to how the security services and the sudanese governments have treated those protesters but information as far as a mother but she was concerned he wants to show that he is still very much a statesman still very much in control he has no issue leaving the country to visit other world leaders assured he believes to come back with still in power so a significant trip in the sense that there is a lot to discuss between these two governments but tightlipped both sides have been with regards to revealing as to what's they've agreed on if there's been any deals and how to move forward and even organs monitoring the situation in the sudanese capital khartoum. people in sudan are saying they will not stop demonstrating against president bashir until he actually steps down again that is something he has repeatedly said that he will not do until elections come in twenty twenty and
even then there is a chance he might run again there's already a proposed change that is tabled in front of the parliament to try to amend the constitution for the bashir could run for another term but people are saying they don't want him to continue running for be under thirty years that he's already been in power they say that during his term in office the country has been ruled with corruption and that they commonly has been in a downward spiral now the protest started on the nineteenth of december because of lack of pride in the city of ottawa but that quickly morphed into calls for the president to step down the rights groups say at least forty people have been killed but the government is disputing that figure they say the people who have been killed so far is at least twenty seven there are also concerns about activists being arrested in the protests the government has said that they've arrested eight hundred and sixteen people last week but then people are saying that opposition groups and other activists are saying that the number could be as high as over a thousand people many of them with their whereabouts unknown and their health conditions also unknown people are saying they will not continue they will not stop demonstrating they are more protests planned in the coming days tomorrow is that
there is a nationwide protest called by the sudanese professional association which has been spearheading the calls for the president to step down now and people are saying that they're very determined they're very keen to see their president step down it's not clear how far this would go but both sides are very determined the president is determined to stay in power and people determined to see him go. ahead soln the program running out of clean up or running water how war has meant the most precious resource is out of reach for to serve the people in yemen. and we meet right in the refugees who've been forced to leave india after being harassed and targeted. quiet weather in central southern china at the moment proper winter weather really unfortunately that does sometimes been persistent fog or even small good the
