10:03 am

10:04 am
going to act it's a problem they say ok. but until now no one not even what is the president of the old president omar bashir used as a main point i mean and also the secret service who killed more than a hundred people in just four months old until now. just a no one brought to justice just a main street for many people is to stay so you're saying there's a lack of credibility there in the military council says they want to reach out to the protesters and help create a civilian government within two years but people just don't believe that. this two years is not for me to cover people need immediate civilian government just as well as a problem what we see you know in sudan it is also not just to us because to use those with short time to. try to forward this program all fourteen of them are intent on

10:06 am
know anything about the whereabouts of president bashir also as a because problem until now no one know what he said you know and so much people don't believe anymore in this army government where they are not showing at least what is his and this is probably much extinction also there in the national. congress party what was the body of the government and said to us it still exists. and just a second problem will have to be sort of no one knew until now even is it another do you have to play over what is going on right so there's a lack of trust in the military council just very briefly where do you see this playing out over the next few weeks if the protesters say we're not backing down. that would be more coming up somehow kind of way for giving the people chance to believe i mean yesterday to have a press conference on this is a some point it was
10:07 am

10:14 am
pierre commissioner general of the united nations relief and works agency for palestinians he says it is in europe's interest to improve conditions for refugees in the middle east. i'm joined now by pierre crane commissioner general of the united nations work and relief agency for palestinian refugees mr crimble last year you organization had to fill the gap of nearly half a billion dollars after the u.s. cut its funding you managed to get some of the funding from forty other countries if you're going to search now out of the waters where it was an existential crisis last year no doubt about it and it shook the agency it shook palestine refugees throughout the middle east it created a lot of anxiety and it was remarkable that the forty countries and institutions that you mentioned rallied in support of honor and that we were able to overcome this historic shortfall i think that was a very strong message right now of course like it is for every humanitarian
10:15 am
organization we have to start again in two thousand and nineteen to mobilize them to secure the same level of funding d.w. reporters have been in the camp of your russian jordan so he can work as hard to be laid off because of the cuts one with the residents feel the effects of new money coming in well that was a very difficult moment last year and the example you give from jordan was painful there were even more painful examples in the gaza strip because when you lose a job in gaza you don't find another one because of the lack of the climate opportunities we are currently reinvesting in the senate taishan areas in jordan we have been bringing in new money and just now we are also rehabilitating a large number of schools in jordan i think these are signs of the effects of the mobilization that took place last year and we're trying really to improve as well as we can the situation the refugee crisis here in europe in two thousand and fifteen some say it was also triggered by the situation in the refugee camps in the
10:16 am
middle east how does your funding situation could be a risk for more refugees coming to europe well what i think is clear is that we learned in two thousand and fifteen from a european perspective that if one does not invest in trying to resolve. the conflicts of the middle east politically there are of course risks in human terms and there are risks from the middle east that can spill over into other parts of the world including europe and i think it's very important that an organization like ours that has given refugees millions of refugees of palestine refugees the possibility to choose to remain in the middle east to seek to preserve their opportunities and a bit of their personal horizons is something that is definitely worth doing and that's what we stand for and that's also one of the messages we give is a humanitarian organization but we do also contribute to regional stability talking about political solutions israel's prime you're benjamin netanyahu seems to have
10:17 am
won the elections in israel what does that mean for the situation of the palestinians in the refugee comes you know i think the emotional context is extremely high in the region especially last year following the announcement on jerusalem the funding cuts to annorah so it's in everybody's interest i think sincerely set in the region to see a bit more courage displayed at political levels at the international level in reengaging in the search of a political solution because you have to understand that what we're dealing with in the region now is a total lack of horizon and lack of horizons are not good for people but they're also not good for stability and here i think as an organization that sees on a daily basis the human consequences of the unresolved political situations when rock continuously calls for more energy to be invested into political resolution of conflict mr crimble you thank you very much. now to brazil where tribal leaders say the amazon rain forest is being rapidly eroded by illegal
