a lot of uncertainty and a lot of this what you meant at the end of the a because a lot of people were expecting that that actually after seeing the leader of the venezuelan opposition white doll flanked by dozens of defectors given us what an armed force is that that actually they could have a managed to get the big prize from their point of view from the point of view of those who oppose the collapse i don't know which was the toppling of the president in that at the end of the day at the end of another long day of violence as you were saying very very strong and violent confrontation where back to where we were in many ways to as they all made where. calling for more protests on that wednesday may for some part of the opposition we expect a very symbolic big protest that we're doing. and i try to reach the presidential

5:05 am
a video that we saw was recorded earlier from the media flotus palace and nobody is sure where he is right now the same is true with white dog who appeared in an instagram video video he published on this the ground account from a nondescript their apartment with a statue of. venice where i believe nobody knows exactly where they are spending the night there's a lot of tension of course in cacace however we understand that except for it's small group of people that are still staging demonstrations in that meeting in the east. where each has long been volley that forty off is ations through. movement things are rather calm but things can change quite quickly inside venezuela and in surprising way as we have seen on tuesday so we're going to have
5:06 am
to see what happens in the coming hours and again tomorrow which both sides are calling for major demonstrations by think he once again here is to see if there will be more defections i'm part of the military in especially. the top officials who control a lot of man a lot of weapons so tomorrow will be another very important day in venice where love for the future of the country and the continuing struggle for the power of in a swim do you believe that's the moment to on a sunday join you the situation develops let's move to reaction from the united states and the national security adviser john bolton lisa's situation done as well it is to coup but a legitimate president trying to take control could be held could tell us more from washington d.c. . the united states continues to be somewhat secretive about its role in venice well and the events that are taking place the u.s.
5:07 am
national security advisor would only say the country is offering venezuela humanitarian support and quote a lot of other things but he would not say what those things were when asked directly about military intervention he said that all options remain on the table but for now the united states supports a peaceful transfer of power that the us president is monitoring the situation in venezuela by the minute and he also said that he was the people in venezuela to go through what they said they would do to allow for a transition of power if this effort fails they will sink into a dictatorship from which there are very few possible alternatives it's a very delicate moment i want to stress again the president wants to see a peaceful transfer of power from the doro to glad that possibility still exist if enough figures depart from the regime and support the opposition there john bolton also said that he does not view what is taking place in venezuela as any sort of
5:08 am
who and when asked about some support on the ground for president nicolas maduro someone the united states does not support he said this is really just military fear of cuban security forces mcgirr is directing his thugs to conduct his affairs he went on to caution russia for its involvement as well in venezuela saying that they view the actions of russia in venezuela to be very serious and that we expect the russians not to interfere so very clear on the u.s. position by the national security adviser john bolton that the united states still continues to push for a peaceful transfer of power to the interim leader one. bitter struggle is a former venezuelan presidential chief of staff and president peres joins me now live from miami very good to have you with us on al-jazeera miss rango is the military the pivot around which the survival of these two very disparate groups
5:09 am
depends. in the what is going on is that there is the division is there since this within the military with part of the military. led by the chair of the joint chiefs four star. in favor of the press their way the whole world by the you know a lot there with who is the minister of defense and the risks of the military leadership supporting nicolas maduro so are this is. it two or stalemate in venice for ella because our less of the whole of the military so porous. for on mode or two way door there is not chance that there could be a negotiated of peaceful transition some other fact that qantas seems to be more in for work closer to the more civil war in
5:10 am
depending on your position of where you sit in a watching the pictures it seems that president is trying to downplay the and the demonstrations and the exodus of people leaving the country from. go i don't position obviously he is trying to get as many people on to the streets to make the images certainly on television look like he has the public behind him and to also illustrate the food and medical shortages that venezuela is experiencing how do you see the situation from where you are in miami also having worked in the inner sanctum of government you know how it operates. there what i see top dollar per all this is within the government. my
5:11 am
chinnery which means non of the things we've got a good study government is supposed to provide to the population it's being provided there is no security rampant crime is on the street it's the gangs and the street gangs and the drug mafia they're running the country and there is no health care us the hospitals don't get in of inputs in order to be able to train to seek and there is no enough. food there are severe shortages of food some other fog venice whaler is on their virtual entering a far mine at the style of what we have seen in some places in africa darfur like the out for very many years ago so this intuition for the population is terrible because they miss their government is not governing the government is just trying to sort of was pressing nicholas modo long last the last this is respect of the
5:12 am
people of venice well the respect of the international community and now he has lost all the money because with the sanctions it is impossible for him to confront with. with the proceeds of the oil trade any of the old league ations that they have reported openness without including payment of ted and of course supplying food for the venezuelan people because under the government of brazil. the proportion of food that is imported it's eighty percent of the daily diet of venezuela if i were going to be very many years ago he was pretty hard to leave and we do appreciate you joining us from miami we have to get straight. to you where we have brought here he took. who's also going to take to the platform to make a few short comments we will listen in to what the new emperor of japan accompanied
5:13 am
by his wife and empress misaka have to say.
5:14 am
under the provision of the constitution of japan and this special measures of the imperial house act here i have just exceeded to the imperial throne. thinking about the responsibility that is in instructed with me in this duty.
5:15 am
recall the emperor emeritus and in america. throughout the thirty years in their reign have wished for world peace and at any time they always thought and shared the sufferings of the people of japan. and they have both showed that through their actions. and have put into action through sincerity in each of the duties that they performed. so as a symbol of japan emperor emeritus and the empress emeritus i hereby of for my gratitude for what they have done. here as i accede to the throne. i will carry on in the footsteps of the emperor emeritus and the emperor america
5:16 am
and also the previous emperors that have reigned. and promise to think about the people of japan and. under the provisions of the constitution japan i shall perform my duties as the symbol of the people of japan. and i sincerely. wish for peace to prevail in the world and in japan.
5:17 am
i hear my next announcement. to the emperor today you have exceeded to the imperial throne as a representative of the japanese people we'd like to offer our gratitude. for doing so. what about an hour you meet and if we think about the footsteps they're taken by the emperor emeritus under the provision of the constitution of japan.
5:18 am
they have performed. their official duties as the symbol of the people of japan and they have always wished for the world peace. we hold it. in sincerity in the position of the. emperor. working towards world peace among. the world fraught with disaster but we will work towards building a brighter future a world of hope. and here we sincerely wish for the peace to prevail in the new era. and also the prosperity of the imperial household . if.
5:19 am
you want to have as there are these are live pictures from tokyo the new emperor emperor no hito made a few simple remarks about what he hopes he can bring to the new era of. the regency that is now to begin with his ascendancy to the throne accompanied by his wife the empress masako they are now leaving the hall of pine the as it's called with their royal entourage the audience assembled in the hall. dignitaries of the inner royal household and also members of the government led by sions a day who addressed the emperor but also paying homage and respect
5:20 am
to the previous emperor who performed his duties as a symbol of peace around the world and that's what he hoped the new emperor would bring to the new royal household listening into this was our correspondent way they who's been following events for us it's a game that was a mother and second simple ceremony to lay the groundwork for the new japanese era with a new japanese emperor. yes and i think paris fitting that the gloomy wet weather of tuesday when we saw the abdication ceremony for his father was given a way to get a full sunshine in the japanese capital turkey when thousands of people taking advantage of that. to come to the exterior of the imperial palace just to be potts
5:21 am
of the cage in this historic occasion the first time in more than two hundred years that we've seen an emperor a takeover as the results of an abdication and a brief speech as you mentioned as we store again on tuesday during the abdication it was very brief the same from the new emperor not he to a very brief speech and from there i think you can take that he will continue in the vein all of his father akihito who was a very popular emperor according to most polls conducted in this country he proved to modernize the imperial family and the position of the emperor and make it more relevant and i think all expectations are that his oldest son the new emperor another will continue along that bank he's only fifty nine years old so perhaps it will appeal will speak to a different new generation of japanese who probably don't have the same connection potentially some of them with the imperial family aren't of the same era as akihito
5:22 am
so that could be a challenge but also an exciting opportunity for the new but yes very brief poignant ceremony the second ceremony that we've seen so far on wednesday morning and in just a few moments we're expecting the police to move into this area outside the palace to clear the public away and make way for the new emperor and empress to leave the palace and begin the reign of the new emperor the formal in throne meant ceremony will have to wait until october for that that will be a much more elaborate affair with invited guests coming from overseas and we'll also see the emperor and empress paraded through the streets of tokyo in the back of an open top of the mood we will leave at the very nice bright so they. certainly follow events throughout the day with you as well thank you. but of course japan's new emperor was groomed for the role from
5:23 am
a very young age to hew to is the oldest of three children born to the emperor akihito and his wife. he graduated in one nine hundred eighty two from the department of history at university in tokyo it's a school favored by the japanese imperial family he then studied for two years of oxford university in the u.k. and printed a huge who's married to former diplomat to masako in one thousand nine hundred three and they have one child the seventeen year old princess aiko who's barred by law from inheriting the throne because she is female not a hue to his life has been largely free of scandal michael pena is the president and news agency joins me now from tokyo good to have you with us again michael obviously we've seen a very intricate details ceremony which sets out really. a similar path for the new emperor in
5:24 am
a similar vein to his father. yes well i mean. if something has succeeded marvelously as the reign of akihito was i mean there was almost no criticism that you could make of of akihito study or rain he he did everything he could to as your correspondent said to make the you know the imperial institution more relevant closer to the people a symbol of peace coming after the much more controversial reign of his own father the emperor hirohito so you know when you have such a good role model there's probably no reason why we should expect narrow hito to want to depart in any sharp ways from what his father has done because this father was a was obviously an exemplary emperor for this nation in general terms the rule family has always been quite popular but how much of
5:25 am
a breath of fresh air is the new un in light of his age his forward education his diplomatic wife who is now the new empress they bring in a very new style do they not to the royal household. again i wouldn't i wouldn't see it as being actually that sharp a break even though yes you're right as individuals they are some of more worldly figures but in fact the former emperor although he wasn't educated outside of the united states he was educated by tutors who after world war two who did have this vision of the world so i don't think that you know if you compare akihito to his father what hirohito then then maybe that's where the bigger break. yes of course the new emperor and the empress are younger and that may mean that they're they're
5:26 am
going to want to be a little bit more active in some senses in terms of you know addressing the issues of the day so for example the new emperor may may may take some initiatives for example on issues like climate change he's very strong on environmental issues which we may see that element come in more than we have under the former emperor but again i really think that. we're going to see a lot of continuity and as for the japanese people you know the older generations are the ones who tend to have a much stronger connection to the imperial family than the younger generations who have kind of now fully absorbed into post-modern lives with you know mobile phones and then and other interests but still the appearance to sion is there anything else that remains relevant if that's the case michael what sort of problems or baggage does he have to deal with if we talk about. world war two and also the
5:27 am
issue of comfort women that's a big issue in south korea it did dog the previous and on his visits. is that still are they still relevant issues for the new mold to keep that's arrived and how much of a problem they still going to be for him and his wife the empress as they travel the world as they try. become and stop the identity of the new royal household. right well you know you put your finger on south korea and that's an important one because as tight as the connections between japan and south korea have been you know in japan was of course the colonial power of the korean peninsula for about half a century of the early twentieth century the emperor has never visited the korean peninsula in the emperor and so this is one thing that we might see possibly during
5:28 am
this rain is the first japanese emperor to visit the korean peninsula that's not outside the range of possibility realms of possibility but you know that i think the bigger issue related to that is how is japan changing at the political level at the level of the prime minister and the government you know are they going to try to move it away from that that peaceful post-war culture away from basically the values which akihito and not he to stand for so the issue is you know will at the government level changes in policy create tensions with the new emperor who believe strongly in the post-war ethic of peace and pacifism who should see what does happen for the moment michael penn thanks so much for joining us from take you. know the imperial regalia and i was hit by the new imprinting foods the sacred sword given to him during the ceremony the sword is regarded as a divine object in japanese culture and the tradition is being kept alive by jewel
5:29 am
steelmaker a kina. yeah i get out the old. supervisor of need to home tata steel makers. of the morning to myth shinto gods the sun all descended upon the mountains here and slew an eight forked serpent from a sacred sword laid out heard from its body. the title steelmaking has more than a thousand years of history and tradition. in the fire is a sacred flame of the little bundle transforming iron sand and charcoal into quality jewel steel. the development of steel making contributed greatly to the prosperity of japanese culture and civilization. and we are here trying to preserve it and pass it on for eternity.
5:30 am
we work for three days and nights. tending closely as though raising a child for giving it love. we're prepared to do what it takes to produce magnificent steel. our for you have to do or the heat when working at it is very hot and dusty. it requires physical strength but also mental toughness to work consecutive days and nights for. the if we work as a team for the following specific methods. the charcoal cannot be fed randomly it won't burn well. over strength of the flame which is just sound of the sizzling and the sound of the wind through the vent holes. i make sure i take no video of the colors and sounds totally. i watch the flames
5:31 am
and i go there prepared to pour the iron sand into. the best spot. it's burning hot . this process takes place in winter because it's more effective to work in the cold. we band together in our efforts and that is how the iron bloom is created. when the new steel is made after long days working i feel elated as if my own child was born. let's move on to the day's other news now and to africa siddharth and its ruling military council have asked protesters not to take the law into their own hands the military said it still hopes to now are differences with protest leaders who are still on the streets calling for a civilian government. in khartoum. sudan to stop generals warned their patience has limits they want the protesters on the streets of the capital khartoum to

5:33 am
neighboring countries we want to talk to end quickly so that the tension deescalate this. but the young activists behind the mass protest movement toppled president omar al bashir who worry the military is buying time to prevent a civilian takeover. they say they want the army's role as a stick to it and its influence contained during the transitional period. in a press conference on tuesday so that its professional association denounced the military saying they have no desire to give up power to civilians here and make. the military council is not serious about transferring power to civilians it is clear they want to keep power and retirement for themselves this is unacceptable with the revolution did not take place in order to stop a unilateral military regime and to another unilateral military regime therefore this will not be accepted and is not acceptable but strong statements that summed

5:40 am
both tunisia and in morocco all. muslim brotherhood affiliated parties are represented in the parliaments and they're major players and. to the extent that they fall under this designation it would be common possible for the us government to have diplomatic relations with them it would be hard for them to have contact with them allies that are likely to have been consulted include israel and saudi arabia that cites cutter's support for the muslim brotherhood as a reason for the going blockade of that country but the apparent appeasement of countries like saudi arabia may be only one reason for the trumpet ministrations deliberations another is domestic the decision to outlaw the brotherhood would play well to president trump's political base which is deeply distrustful of any movement that reaches the word muslim mike hanna al-jazeera washington

mainly from iran until shipment stopped in october because of tighter u.s. sanctions on tehran government controlled areas are suffering from a fuel shortage damascus has another oil rich ally russia but politics seem to be play. that the member. is not assisting the syrian government with fuel oil i think russia is using this to put pressure on the syrian government and it's. russia wants the writings and so the political military and security decisions in syria come from the kremlin. syria has just granted russia control of the main strategic commercial port in part on the mediterranean for the next forty nine years it appears russia is replacing iran as syria's main oil supplier but it's not just losing leverage in the energy sector iran's financial difficulties makes it harder for it to remain serious economic lifeline the sanctions are affecting its ability to expand its economic influence us thanks on iran have worked in russia's

along the mediterranean the americans are doing their best to close these crossings they are still in control. along the syria iraq aborted attempts to block iran's regional goals are not new. and the recent sanctions may help contain iran and its allies for now but it's not clear what impact i'll have in the long term. beirut. israel's new parliament has been sworn in three weeks after the general election and the knesset is made up of one hundred twenty members of who will be holding their seats for the first time prime minister benjamin netanyahu is now leading negotiations with coalition partners to form a next government because look party a nationalist allies have a sixty five seat majority. to demolish more palestinian homes the high court has ruled sixty homes in the occupied east jerusalem should be knocked down palestinians say israel is trying to settle as many jews as possible in what they
