people that are. just there 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 events i mean the amazing they said you speak. 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 aimed at finally stopping the violence that has been recurring since the civil war officially ended almost that some years ago but as the pope cautioned whilst meeting president
felipe in you see peace is fragile and must be protected where it's going to be what must continue with determination but without fanaticism with courage but without axle taishan and with tenacity but in an intelligent way to promote peace and reconciliation not the violence that brings not only destruction it is. seen above. 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 lasting peace and most something. on this i'm joined in a studio by views religious affairs correspondent mohsin got. many thanks for that . i'm so the pope is in mozambique how does this benefit ordinary muslim begins 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 this is not only the case for africa and muslim beacon particular but this has been the case for sort of conflict areas for instance at least where the vatican actually had a huge impact on the syrian war in the process of bringing cards together for conversation as well as and that's in america for instance the case of cuba in muslim big in 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 bring into the 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 their agenda
push the front parts and put pressure on the government to actually develop ok before it's a peace process now many expected him to do this that cycle only die affected areas 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 the state of essentially complete brick 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 this 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 spoke ng about the country keeping the peace how much weight does his words carry i think it's a very good question that it's really very difficult to know but in.
a way the boat i mean then the way that this what to can operates is said 6 months later you can always look at what he's that actually happen well the pope was no longer there i think that the press is essentially they come in they flicks muscled they put pressure and then the diplomatic machine gets into the country and has a conversations would governments oh the fact is sad we might see for instance in mother a scar where there is a bromo of the for its station the vatican bushing in the ocean as ensure the bros of preserve ation of course is not going to happen over night and this is not a pope that particular likes the spotlight so so you were very likely there will be a bush to see reforms in the underground then to actually see great declarations to more of morning are the day after a gave was about you she was asked by some to talk about i mean i think that one big issue for the boat in africa is to question of how different off reagan church is had become very much been surveyed of churches and in their way they their ease a certain differ be for a geisha really says certain distance at which they stand from what is the current police if the vatican which has become much more progress if at the same time i
mean this ours bods were the relation between different communities particularly christian community muslim community very important in this a main topic for this pope interim religion religion's magic jack did of use religious affairs correspondent many thousands be a time my pleasure now gun us presidents. knowledge that threat of terrorism to the country our talks in the west african sub region poses a growing risk to gaga so he wants to adopt measures that ensure the country warts of extremism one of these measures is better access to education for young people especially as more and more young muslims in ghana are being targeted by terrorist groups online our correspondents isaac allegedly met one of them who almost joined the so-called islamic state. was just 3 to 2 when

messages to counter narratives that can help this person get out of days you wouldn't want to look at other approaches to country in the us you know to help in the specimen regained his vocals and even positively in society. so for book tours group has reached nearly a 1000 young people but it wants to do more counselling and more job opportunities will hope he says him or wants to hope to well though his 2 kinds reveal his identity for fear of stigma. that soon you'll 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 fiann on peace and security for in ghana's capital accra 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 taken out our correspondent as a collision met him and asked for his. months of the security situation in west africa on the salaries and 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 chaps 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 we have together with france and other g. 7 partners just recently alone spotted german chancellor. initiatives at the cheese 7 meeting in directs we have strongest to date contingent of the german buddhists
