7:51 am
more are we hearing there at the moment. hello has some one of us not quite dramatic while the interior minister addressed the nation he said that they had uncovered as you just mentioned a plot he said that the people who had been arrested had come from colombia that they were mercenaries it described them as terrorists and they had were all apparently former members of the military including three colonels one of them the government had been looking for for quite some time he was accused of having been involved in the foil assassination attempt against president it will last my bhutto in august of last year you may remember this the event when a drone exploded over a military parade that the president was attending so they got him a day of according to the interior minister there were confessions that the plan was to selectively assassinate politicians and members of the military in order to create more upheaval in the country that is at least what is the explanation
7:52 am
they're giving that there were photos of the made in the say at the same time the interim president the self-proclaimed interim president one waythe law was addressing people at the diplomatic corps members of the opposition controlled national assembly and students to outline an economic plan for the nation a recovery plan for the nation and it had to do with the plans especially to bring humanitarian aid into venezuela if it doesn't come in with the central elements of our plan to get back the street and place it in the service of the people the problems of the state are terror and fear the state uses these two things for social control the state is like the mafia no one can live on three dollars a month it's not a problem of the left or the right it's a problem of humanity so mature what's the mood there right now and it all seems quite tense at the moment with with with all this talk of threats to to to family
7:53 am
members and the. arrests of people who are profiting what what what what's the mood there right now. the mood is of people not knowing what is going to happen there is so much suspense there is a have been a major opposition rally called for saturday presumably hundreds of thousands of people will again take to the streets the last time that happened it led to at least thirty deaths up to forty in fact since one by the law was playing the interim president of this country there are at least eight hundred people in prison and so there is tension this fear in fact the prices of things have gone up nearly four times since these this crisis heightened and it's so is so if it's a very sort of unstable situation we were at outside of why laws house shortly after he made the announcement he accompanied by members of the diplomatic corps and the media went back to his apartment we found out we were speaking to the neighbors that there had been police officers there but they had left by the time
7:54 am
of got there but again that just brings tension he says of course that he's not going to be intimidated by these kinds of actions but remember the united states has warned the government that if anything should happen to go either or to his family there will be dire consequences so there is a lot riding on anything happening to him no matter who does it all right for the moment to see newman live for us there in caracas my kana standing by in washington for some my what more are we hearing on this report that. the divine as well in government is trying to ship off gold to the united arab emirates to try and get more credits. for the report was put out by reuters quoting unnamed officials confirming that this was happening and it was enough information it would appear for us republican senator ted rubio to actually issue a tweet directed at the u.a.e. embassy here in washington pointing out that anybody who conducted such trade with
7:55 am
the been as well and government in terms of moving gold out of that country would face sanctions in terms of u.s. treasury regulations not only the individuals with the state concerned but also the airlines that would be carrying out that gold so certainly there is an awareness here ted rubio one of the hawks on the senate when it comes to venezuela there's also been reports so that turkey is considering buying gold from venezuela turkey did buy a large amount of gold last year once again u.s. officials will be holding talks with the turkish counterparts towards the end of the week but clearly venezuela is attempting to move some of its gold reserves to get some cash the reasons for this obviously falling oil output but also of course the sanctions that have been put in place by the u.s. in particular a beginning to bite all right mike thanks for that mike hanna live for us in washington antonina mora is editor in chief of the news and news
7:56 am
dot com he also specializes in venezuela and politics and joins us via skype now from miami thanks for being with us so i want to ask you first of all about this. selling selling gold reserves to the u.a.e. if these reports are true it smacks of desperation doesn't it. it does say they're clearly looking for foreign currency reuters is reporting that they're doing it to try to remain solvent with some of their foreign debt obligations which might be what they're doing because they have tried to stay as solemn as possible trying to forego the possibility that their tankers and their oil and other assets will be embargoed and so they may be trying to do that marco rubio on the other hand to say that this is just another example of venezuelan government theft which it also may be very well very well be the case for could be somewhere in between because the
7:57 am
reality is the all major transactions over the past twenty years but as well there's been giving off the top either but it's on government the corruption there has been a you know just a unbelievable force and nicolas maduro and has in the pos been able to survive crises like this in venezuela before ken kenny some i guess one. yeah he can survive this one the reality is look at cuba survivor the communist government ninety miles off the coast of florida for sixty years display u.s. sanctions so there's no question that he can survive the difference with cuba however is that this is a country that now has a real a long tradition of democracy and so chop is became kind of the other area either so this is a country that mirrors democracy is a country that still connected the rest of the world with the internet and despite the fact that the battle government sometimes cuts off internet access so there is a it's a very different situation than what you get was sixty years ago however my bureau
7:58 am
has shown his resilience and has managed to diffuse crisis after crisis after crisis so i would not bet on us seeing a peaceful transition to democracy anytime soon and i certainly hope it will happen and of course we had this. article that. he wrote for the on the new york times in which he said that he was having this i'm talking about a quite of the self declared to go into i'm sure president he said that he was having what we refer to as a clandestine meetings with with with military leaders we don't know a whole lot of about that but that would suggest to you wouldn't that they that there are people in the military that are that are wavering and this this perhaps could be a pivotal moment for venezuela. if if that is happening and i'll take why the others were that he's talking to some people that would be sort of the final leg of
7:59 am
the perfect storm for murderer where he's got the brutal you know the tough sanctions that the u.s. is a pose now he has got the bet is on people who are good are against him he's seen uprisings in the or areas of that i guess and the rest of them as well and the international community that is now coalescing against the last leg of that he has to stand on is the military if the military is supporting him he may survive if the military does not prop him up that would be the end of my hero overnight all right always good to speak with you one on tony elmore joining us there from miami a plenty more ahead on the newshour. celebrations in lebanon as political factions end up months of deadlock to form a new government. resumes indigenous communities protest against president polson hours policies which they say threaten genocide. and later in sport for time
8:00 am
champions japan prepare to face the tournament's top scorers qatar asian cup final will be in. seoul that's going to have a first the u.s. president saying he is optimistic he can reach a new comprehensive trade deal with china but don't trump says no deal will be finalized until he meets chinese president xi jinping washington and beijing of imposed billions of dollars worth of tariffs on each i was good since a trade war began last year alan fischer reports from washington. we have made tremendous progress we both want to deal but there's still a lot of ground to cover u.s. president donald trump has been meeting china's vice premier in the oval office he delivered a letter from his boss chinese president xi jinping the topic the ongoing trade war between the two hanging over both the.
