9:02 pm
turning a page in christian muslim relations in the region. joining me here in the studio to shed a little light on this is martin jackie religious affairs correspondent ok the pope is going there he's got some pastoral duties obviously as the head of the catholic church any political objectives yeah most clearly and they actually had been openly stated so the two main aims of history is to strengthen the position of the christian community in the middle east particularly in the area of the gulf which are in many of these caves in very very precarious situations and they you know under constant pressure for the better part of the last twenty years with serious reductions in the population and the second one is to actually most likely to have a behind this intervention on the question of yemen which is really kind of the hot topic and it's one that the pope has made himself very clear about. concerning his interest in actually trying to cement a kind of peace so you know it's not very clear what exactly the mechanism will be
9:03 pm
but as a matter of fact this is something that the vatican has been doing in different conflict targets around the world so use some kind of moral suasion to try to change their minds and no i think that pretty much real politics in full diplomatic sort of the blowing and i mean there are some very powerful diplomatic operators working within the vatican that word sort of very visible are the results of their work was very visible in the cuban american relations said was reconstituting the body and was central to the process and to stopping the u.s. from invading syria which in which magic and results are involved it is quite clearly the case that here though i think it's also going to be deploying its diplomatic corps in order to be able to try to achieve some sort of conversation and i suppose for it to be successful it's better to be private and public is certainly by and large i mean the vatican has been to operate away from the spotlight i mean we usually find out that something has happened many months afterwards and that of course all. so talks to sort of the fish and sea or the fact
9:04 pm
of mess of this kind of approach and just a quick final question about the sort of the business of the church i guess we can expect the pope to be putting some pressure or formulating some questions to his hosts so that it's easier to build churches in the usa i mean yes we did that you were a you're supposed to saudi arabia and other places in the region christians are actually allowed to pray i mean us are jews allowed to pray and allowed to worship openly the question is really the pope talking also to saudi arabia and to other powers in the region in which the life of christians is considerably more the fickle so i think in a way he's talking even in the united arab emirates but he's really projecting the message to the entire arab world ok thank you very much heat of the use martin back at the last. u.s. president donald trump is trying to turn the pressure up on venezuela's nicolas maduro and a television interview today trump warned that sending american troops into the

president nicolas maduro has been able to stay in office that's jew in large part to support from venezuela's military leader has appealed for the armed forces to abandon the duro but only a few commanders have defected was. sent is because there's also a struggle going on outside venezuela the u.s. has thrown its full support behind guido even going so far as to leave open the possibility of providing military backing which is for options for oh as for all options are on the. maduro also has powerful allies he supported by russia and china who are wary of setting an example of a north or tearing ruler being deposed with the help of an outside power washington in this case. this old means that despite venezuela's huge economic problems vested interests both inside and outside the country could prolong the political turmoil much longer than some observers told. the

earlier i spoke to d.w. correspondent oscar schrenker in caracas he described what president maduro can expect if he doesn't agree to hold fresh presidential elections by the sunday deadline set by a number of european states. well we can extract the rest of the european countries that said that eight days ago won't follow suit and recognize the legitimate claim when i don't have to be president according to records were written on situation not of the european parliament already recognized that the laws are going to meet you could not figure out unanimous decisions but the consensus was not to do it not when his reelection fairly last week and you thought it would give him that leader go on with our reporters and work to report of the military there's not much he will be able to do outside russia or cuba and maybe china on an international one and that was. speaking to us earlier from caracas. and now
