protesters as thousands gather for what they call a universal seach on communists. thank you. i have been home for a glad you could join me a major international conference aimed at reaching a peace deal for navia will begin here in berlin later today now libya's main warring parties and their international backers will seek to fresh out a deal to end years of conflict germany has expressed confidence that an agreement can be reached in them but tensions remain high in india and the country remains deeply divided. a quiet day in libya's capital tripoli. libyans awaiting news of sunday's berlin peace conference but expectations are low. mr lamotte that regarding the. berlin conference if it favors the libyan people libya will of
11:02 am
course welcome it but if it pavers other matters then we won't be happy that here never saw the united. truth is the conference of berlin is simply a trap to libya i don't think that any benefits will come out of it. there are currently 2 sides to libya the internationally recognized government and the opposition. spearheaded by this man general khalifa haftar he wants to take power and he's raised the stakes forces supporting general have to have blocked oil exports from key ports in eastern libya holding the economy to ransom the country is divided with anti have to protests in western libya the conference in berlin overseen by the united nations aims to bridge this divide but it won't be easy. i'm not saying that's a mistake to say that it will be used as we're not saying naive to say that it will
11:03 am
be the end of international divisions if we can lighten richie's calm down and call upon the divisions you know especially the regional ones but also international relations that we have seen in recent. would be very good. 9 years of conflict in libya has slowly turned into a regional proxy war the u.n. wants world leaders to stop meddling and hopes the berlin conference will be the beginning of the end for foreign interference let's talk through this now i'm joined here in the studio by all political correspondent hans but then it's the hand so what can we expect from these talks. is there really a chance for peace bearing in mind that we even saw general hostile walk away from troops in russia this week not only walk did he walk away from toe talks in russia earlier this week his supporters also have just blocked export ports in libya which is another form of power play in the run up to this negotiation that's happening today have to show you how powerful he is that he regards himself as on top of the
11:04 am
situation the militarily strong. force in libya at the moment that's something that in fact has an effect on all of libya because oil revenues are still shared between the international internationally recognized government. it's a complicated situation both of these players on the ground here and good. it's not clear whether they're going to be meeting but they're not actually sitting f. a table today sitting at the table old us pause that are supporting one or the other side in libya because they really determine what's going to happen there and that's russia on the one side turkey on the other side the united arab emirates on the one side qatar on the other side it's really on one side france on the other side it's a very very complicated situation and we know what is that complex in mind do you think that they ease room for a compromise here between the 2 parties and of course the international back is or
11:05 am
is it a case of or no nothing here today and in all the last thing would mean that one side wins militarily and that's not happened in the last year as. a general has been attacking the libyan capital tripoli for months now he has not really made much progress there it really depends on the outside support on the weapons that are coming from the outside on the mercenaries that are coming from the outside and this conference is trying to prevent start from escalating in fact prevent that from happening at all. because the german chancellor is trying to pursue to persuade all these countries involved not to supply for the arms not to supply through the mercenaries to support one side or the other and in fact to establish 1st of all a kind of stable ceasefire which has not happened yet a stable sation of facilities which would then lead to a formal cease fire and then to start some kind of political process that would
11:06 am
formally divide power influence revenue from and so on in the whole of libya it's a very very long and complicated process that's only starting when a sorry for all. these to say that he's waiting to see what is the biggest issue on the table i mean is it oriel is it stemming the flow of migrants into europe what is it well certainly full the europeans for germany this stemming the flow of migrants is very important because libya. is the main country for african migrants trying to get to europe where they embark on boats and then cross into europe so that's always been very very important or even under colonel gadhafi still you know many years ago before he was deposed from power and killed so for the europeans that's very important but also they are other strategic issues involved there's the oil and the gas obviously but libya borders on countries such as in west africa the strategic places and there's the question of islamists and so on that also play

11:09 am
left now the scene police is still there they're conducting occasional searches a few people have been arrested now after this demonstration and. bystanders have come out and then he's a little scuffles that happened but mostly the protest is over no i mean it has been quiet in hong kong recently so why have protesters chosen to increase the pressure again this weekend. it has been quieter insists peshawar in and as far as violence is concerned things have calmed a little bit down protests have been going on there have been many small protests over the christmas days in shopping malls for example there has been a big march on the 1st of january where again hundreds of thousands. showed up and now today this march was also attended by
11:10 am
a few tens of thousands of people mainly there is no solution to the crisis that underlies this conflict to demand of the protesters or the protesters feel their demands have not been met there's no dialogue between the government and the opposition so it is the none of the issues that underlie this conflict have been resolved and that is why protesters decided to come out again and briefly mathias how much support does the movement still have in hong kong. they have not been annie new opposed released in the recent 2 or 3 weeks but from what we've seen not not much has changed the population is divided along a 6040 percentage. with about 60 percent to 2 thirds supporting the protests and one 3rd to 40 percent supporting the government when i corresponded mathias spending

a in hong kong keeping us up to date thanks for that. well britain's queen elizabeth has reached an agreement with her grandson prince harry and his wife make and that will allow them step back from their roles as working members all the royal family now they will cease to use the title royal highness and will no longer receive taxpayer money last month they said they wants to lead a more independent life. for the 1st time meghan there in white was seen holding hands with prince harry in public she may have known then that she might never again be simply meghan markle in the eyes of the media. and every mention thereafter she would be tied to harry and his royal ness. and that meant more media attention than she may have even imagined. even after a spectacular wedding the british media especially the tabloids disrupted dismayed
11:12 am
and eventually helped disengage or exit prince harry and his wife meggan from royal service. rex it has tended to divide like bricks and in an extraordinary silver way it's interesting that the millennial tend to be sympathetic towards them on the whole the baby boomers tend to be disapproving of them all the whole and it appears of mother of them particularly want to pay for them public opinion in britain may be divided public opinion a tourist sites in britain are decidedly on the side of harry in macon and i think it's very cool that she gets to about america do as he wants but i think anyway that's because they're going to have a lovely life i wish them all the best i feel that would be a great step to them be unhappy are next for the happy happier couple and attempt at a more ordinary life split between britain the north america where some day they may be introduced as 1st meghan and then her husband harry all right to the wind is
