from these nuns in mozambique's capital so. let my people know that there's. this the want the babies i'm really happy because we're here to greet our shepherd pope francis the father of the whole catholic church so all of us are here with all of the people of mozambique to welcome our father of joy and enthusiasm at the end of the actual. been president says he's coming to bring us hope and courage meant to be good i mean reinvigorating our faith the moment it's a very important moment because we believe he's bringing a strong message of hope the past i mean as you know his most and you spit out. with a strong message of peace the pope's visit comes just weeks after mozambique's government and opposition signed an landmark peace agreement it's and finally stopping the violence that has been recurring since the civil war officially ended almost that gives ago but as the pope cautioned whilst meeting president felipe in you see
peace is fragile and must be protected. and we must continue with determination but without fanaticism and with courage but without excell taishan and with tenacity but in an intelligent way to promote peace and reconciliation not the violence that brings not only destruction. about. the pope's warning is a timely one elections are set to take place next month meeting with groups of different faiths he called for unity and for better opportunities to ensure a lasting peace in mozambique. on this i'm joined in a studio by dean abuse religious affairs correspondent martin got. many thanks for that's. i'm so the pope is in mozambique how does this benefit ordinary muslim
bacon's i mean essentially you know there is a way in which international organizations of the size of the vatican they feel that leads that they can actually put a lot of pressure into regional governments and there's not only the case for africa and muslim we can particular but this has been the case for sort of conflict areas for instance and at least where the vatican actually had a huge impact on the syrian war in the process of bringing parts together for conversation as well as and that's in america for instance the case of cuba in muslim begin particular john paul the 2nd was the last pope to visit the vatican has been very much involved in negotiating and trying to appease the bard's and bringing to table the fact is that the country has relapse into war no for 16 years and i think that the hope of this pope and the hope of the entire diplomatic operation about this by around this pope because it's not really just one person it's really an entire set of people is that they can actually push the agenda push
the fron hard and put pressure on the government to actually develop before it's a peace process now many expected him to this that cycle only die off that yes but he will not why not he will not unfortunately i mean it would be something that many of us would be very interested in seeing because there is still very very much in this stage of essential a complete break are you as it has not i mean reports at least are that there has not been sort of you know widespread rebuilds and that there is still sort of massive problems but the fact is that there is a pope that is struggling under very very strict security security rules and it is essentially a security issue the reason why this pope is not going to be live in the capital ok so he's booking about climate change he's booking about the country keeping the peace how much weight does his words carry i mean it's a very good question that it's really very difficult to write nobody. the pope i
mean in the way that this was you know parades is that 6 months later you can always look at what does that actually happen while the pope was no longer there i think that the press is essentially they come in they flex muscle they put pressure and then the diplomatic machine gets into the country and has a conversations with government so the fact is that we might see for instance in mother scar where there is a broom of the forestation the vatican pushing in the ocean essentially brose of preservation of course is not going to happen overnight and this is not a pope that particularly like the spotlight so very likely there will be a push to see reforms on the ground then to actually see great declarations tomorrow morning or the day after it was about issues we expect him to talk about i mean i think that one big issue for the pope in africa is the question of how different african churches had become very much conservative churches in the way there is a certain different there's a certain distance at which they stem from what is the current policy of the
vatican which has become much more progressive at the same time i mean the stars were the relation between different communities particularly christian community muslim community very important is a main topic for this pope into religion religion's magic jack did have used religious affairs correspondent many times by the time my pleasure. now got us president. that threat of terrorism to the country attacks in the west african region poses a growing risk to gotta so he wants to adopt measures that ensure that country warts extremism one of these measures is better access to education for young people especially young muslims in ghana being targeted by terrorist groups online correspondents i met one of them who almost joined the so-called islamic state. he . was just 22 when he had great to join this quote this line
exchange he had recently finished school and was unable to find where he moved who seem to have changed to protect he say 20 was recruited to facebook he says the told him if he joins to group be given money in some way to leave. no i got them i was i was like i was used to almost. stuff to be missing or like. money and everything to prove validate for. you see what i got them my menu was what to get money i was no false but i was a wee. wee you know what i'm saying i was a force that's just days before he was due to leave him russo a program on t.v.
about extremism and changed his mind he says it saved in easy it's education though we are lucky. education oh i notice and my education center says. the program was to meet better with sapphic and center for counter extremism in. its leader with terrible moment in booked our says that in just 2 years they have stopped more than 50 young people like you morrow from joining a us community engagement and talking to young people is also part of the initiative. so if someone is significantly influenced by religious doctrines only those ideals negatively yours ideals we come from the perspective of religion what are the counter messages the counter narratives that can help this person get out
of this you wouldn't want to look at other approaches to country in this you know to help in the specimen regained his vocals i'm leaving positively in society. so far book tours group has reached nearly a 1000 young people but it wants to do more counseling and more job opportunities will hope he says him or wants to hope to although his 2 can't reveal his identity for fear of stigma he hopes that soon you will be able to use his story to discourage others from being radicalized. so what can be done to count out a threat of terrorism and violent extremism in the region that's what political leaders are discussing an article for you on un peace and security forum in gonna stop at all across the on all 4 brings together political leaders diplomats and
experts for talks on evolving trends in peace and security germany's ambassador to ghana christophe is among those taking part our correspondent as a collision met him and asked for his. months of the security situation in west africa on the side how region there's good reason to be concerned about the security situation in west africa if you look at the asylum region if you look at the lake chechen region if you look at the situation in north east and if you look at the maritime security situation in the gulf of guinea and there is a reason for growing concerns and i think we really have to find a strong and united on sort of this challenge what is germany doing to resolve some of these issues here we have together with france and other g 7 partners just recently launched by the german chancellor the asylum initiative at the cheese 7 meeting in directs we have the strongest to date contingent of the german buddhists
