1:04 pm
out loud and come forward and speak up on on their behalf now either he's gotten advice from from from other side step for example to the cardinal here the catholic cardinal here in me and mark and he said don't use the word because it will antagonize a lot of people in myanmar and it will deep in the divide that this country that are tearing this country apart there are many catholics but there are religious divides obviously so he opted not to use the word stranger but he did deliver a message of peace and he was very clear about the about the about the foundations of that love that he's in that it can only be brought about if if the rights of all religious minorities and of all ethnic groups are respected and if you. think about what the pope said in the past when he could vocally spoken out on behalf of the ranger then you can understand. that he was he shooting they were in jobs obviously
1:05 pm
in that now he also praised nonsense and she for her peace building process she of course the one who was trying to broker a deal but with all the ethnic or with many of the ethnic groups there are long running conflicts internal conflicts between the me and my army and the government and under the the previous government which which was a military government obviously and ethnic groups in myanmar not at a peace process is explicitly does not include the injured because they are not a recognized that the minority of this country they are considered here illegal immigrants from bangladesh nonetheless this is a piece of building process that the pope acknowledged and he said that it would be that it would be a difficult process everybody and one that can only be achieved in a spirit of solidarity and of tolerance and freedom and above to what the

1:08 pm
the election because he keeps on the eight year elections of not personality but rather competing visions it was almost like he was giving an olive branch is saying that you know severe or not he will be tested for anyone trying to unite the country and he will try and refute the constitution but ironically i see is making this statement get reported to people who've been shot dead in soweto which is a close to larger kuranda where the taking place where we were hard cock headed there and what about the opposition candidate and i know he had boycotted the election redone is it showing any going to willing to accept any out as reelection . it doesn't seem like he will always whether his arm of position support is the most well known fact the weeks have been saying that this inauguration process is actually a carnation incumbent presidents a good. idea they haven't recognized to send

a decision to extend the license for the controversial reads killer glad to say it's good end up complicating chancellor macas efforts to form a new government now the problem is that a minister in murtha's conservative bloc made a decision to vote for the license extension with the support of the party currently in coalition with them confused let's explain. say it has always been a controversial topic it pits the e.u. commission against citizens rights groups the chemicals industry against organic farmers critical scientists against support of scientists neither we killer has become toxic to germany's acting government and this in danger in the prospects of forming a new one. e.u. member states twice before failed to agree whether to bond like a saint or extend its license no decision was reached because germany abstained both times. germany social democrat environment minister
1:12 pm
supported the bond due to suspicions of the weed killer is carcinogenic and is killing off too many insects the agriculture minister from the conservative c.s.u. is on the side of the farmers and favored continued use of life for say the lack of cabinet consensus meant berlin abstained in the previous folks until monday when germany suddenly voted in favor of an extension. i spoke by phone with my colleague mr schmidt today at twelve thirty and made it clear that i was sticking to my no and that therefore germany has to abstain on this issue and cannot agree to the extension. this is and this is a serious breach of trust within the acting government i have to ask myself in light of this go it alone decision whether mrs merkel has her own people under control for america. i have no lawyer to know from kurt ahead of talks about a new grand coalition between the s.p.d. in the conservatives the timing could hardly have been worse. but the agriculture
1:13 pm
minister says he gained important concessions in exchange for his yes vote. if you let me finish i feel it is my duty in the government to take decisions that need to be taken. but i also decide based on the facts and nothing else that. when he's under the vote has bitterly divided the acting grand coalition the e.u. decision to permit use of life has said for another five years cannot be revoked whatever the possible dangers no one thoughts the efficacy of life or say when it comes to killing weeds the concern is that it could kill off any chance of germany forming a new government. and following this story i'm joined by our correspondent christopher springeth chris a lot of impact could this dispute have on potential negotiations in forming a new government. it could have quite a destructive effect if there are no consequences coalition governments in germany . have very detailed coalition agreements and part of that detail are the
1:14 pm
procedural rules that they agree upon the internal regulations if you want and one key regulation is that if two ministries held by different parties within a given coalition disagree on a given issue then the relevant minister. who is responsible for a vote at the international level or at the european union must abstain so what christian schmidt the conservative agriculture minister did was a clear breach of those regulations and this comes at a time when chancellor merkel is trying to build a new foundation of trust for a new grand coalition between her conservatives and the social democrats in fact it seems that there are quotes from some quarters here that the agriculture minute mr schmidt we saw in our report should resign after this controversy he's caused that's right the opposition greens have come out and called for his resignation
1:15 pm
schmidt's opponent in the cabinet the social democrat environment minister barbara hendrick she said that her resignation would be. would restore that loss of trust that now exists she didn't actually openly call for his resignation she said the ball is now in chancellor merkel's court she must do something to he or that loss of trust so we'll just have to see what happens so a lot of talk about trust here chris what can i get michael and the conservatives do to continue this damage. well pressure is growing on chancellor merkel to react in some way or other i don't know whether she's going to fire this minister he's actually from the very allies of christian democrats so it's slightly complicated for her to just get up and fight him she can do it if she wants she hasn't done it so far maybe she'll find some other way of centering him but the fact is the social
1:16 pm
democrats that she chancellor merkel wants to get into a new grand coalition will be saying to her. if. the procedural rules that govern such coalitions are not worth the paper that they're written on why should we come and talk to you i chrysippus bring it up on i'm interested here's thank you very much you're welcome staying in germany in chancellor angela merkel has expressed shock at a knife attack on a conservative mare known for his migrant friendly policies the attack took place in a kabob restaurant the western german city of tina authorities say it's likely the stabbing was politically motivated harsh time was taken to hospital but later released in two thousand and fifteen and the man became known nationally voice welcoming policies towards refugees. you're watching d.w. news coming up ahead. the lights are on at the berlin christmas market hit by
1:17 pm
a deadly terrorist attack last year but how safe do people feel at public venues in the german capital. but first it's business is good hard joins me now and it's all about this virtual currency called bitcoin which is surging it is surging is tipped to hit the ten thousand dollar mark soon actually last weekend alone the price of one bitcoin soared in value through nine thousand dollars because it is the best known of thousands of so-called crypto currency. those cryptic arises are digital payment systems in which the currency is created on privately owned computers using a technology called block chain it's bypassing any central bank and these currencies so can undermine monetary policy also investors are unprotected central bankers warn that bitcoin has no tangible value and is destined to crash it cons
1:18 pm
value is determined entirely by supply and demand so it is very sensitive to market developments for example when china decided to ban bitcoin exchanges in september its value slumped by thirty percent as marked in red here but it's soon more than doubled again more and more regulators institutional investors and big business are starting to taken earnest interest in the currency earlier i asked our financial correspondent yes carter if it's time for average investors to get into bitcoin now . well that's the ten thousand two hundred thousand dollar question i have two younger colleagues and they actually just started buying bitcoin so obviously some people still believe that is not too late to jump in but then also the whole block change of knowledge is rather complex and should i buy shouldn't i buy it really depends also on your risk level is complex we don't have that much we really don't know that much how it works so it's i would say there is
1:19 pm
a certain risk attached to it if it's too late who knows there's a certain amount of secrecy around the whole thing as well who invented is not quite clear and all that while central banks are worried about it well first of all kinds and and other cryptocurrency is as well and not really that regulated and if we talk about crypto what is really problematic is the so-called i see something like an i.p.o. for stock as an initial coin offering directly we could decide in a few minutes ok let's start to cryptocurrency and then we just need people to buy it and trust us so it's so that is one reason the whole regulation part and then just do we see a bubble that's also something what central banks are concerned about early this year cohen stood at seven hundred dollars now we're almost at ten thousand of the speed is just a pretty breathtaking it's mind blowing it is indeed the ceiling well the sky's the limit. so yeah it's really tough to tell but but one thing is for certain
1:20 pm
people are not just buying cryptocurrency is they're not buying bitcoins they're buying everything they're buying stocks they're buying currencies they're buying commodities and they're also buying kryptos and one thing is for certain it is still pretty young and and we will also see a certain question bitcoins at some point but that doesn't mean that in the long run they're justified yes go out on your correspondent on erev is a studio thank you very much. the world economy is growing at an ever faster pace for twenty eighteen the o.e.c.d. predicts global growth to hit three point seven percent in a report released on tuesday and here's the good part it's not only rich industrialized nations that grow developing economies all set to benefit more than . the company is one of globalization's winners they produce fans in germany china india and the us everywhere demand is climbing
