Thailand Declares State Of Emergency Amid Anti-Government Protests

"Is on a kind of locked down, but it's not the pandemic its politics. On Wednesday, tens of thousands of anti government protesters gathered in Bangkok to push their demands for the military back to government to step down before the sun came up. However, an unidentified government spokesman read a statement on television like onto turned him a quandary rang naked punk. He declared a state of extreme emergency in the capital in a bid to end the student led protests. Whose demands also include cause to reform the country's powerful monarchy. Reporter Michael Sullivan is on the line from Bangkok. Good morning, Michael. Just tell us what the situation on the streets is right now. Well, Rachel. I just got back from a protest on demonstrators called for late this afternoon after they were driven from the prime minister's office this morning, and they're not listening to the terms of this extreme emergency. That the government declared one of those terms was no gatherings of more than five people. And now there are several 1000 at the Raja purse song Intersection in the commercial heart of the city and their defiant They say they're not stopping, and so far, there's a heavy police presence, but no intervention. Yet aside from this morning's arrests of several of the protest leaders and the government says all of these measures are necessary because Wednesday's demonstration they say, caused chaos and disorder, including disrupting a royal motorcade. But I mean, it wasn't yesterday's demonstration, largely peaceful. It was even though there were tens of thousands gathered at Bangkok's Democracy monument. There wasn't any real problem, despite the fact that there were many pro royalist demonstrators there on the sidelines, dressed in yellow, which leads some to believe there could be trouble. But there wasn't until The anti government demonstrators started their march to the prime minister's office about a mile away. And it's not exactly clear how. But there was a woman when some of the protesters were suddenly in the way of the queen's motorcade. And the on ly thing. Separating them from her limo was a thin blue line of police who forcibly part of the protesters to allow the motorcade to pass even a sum. Flash the three finger salute from the hunger Games movies as it did, And that seems to be the catalyst for all of that. This kind of thing just doesn't happen here on band some of the protest leaders who are detained overnight or some of the most vocal about challenging not just the government, but but the whole monarchy as well, right? Yeah, and I don't think that's an accident. I think it's not a coincidence. All this is happening. While the King and queen are in Bangkok. They usually aren't They spend a lot of time in Germany and This is one of the things that some of these protestors have also criticized in addition to saying the monarchy has too much money and too much power and up Until a few months ago, this kind of talk was taboo. You just don't talk publicly about the monarchy here in part Because criticizing the king or the royal family can land you in jail for up to 15 years. But even after some of the students announced their manifesto to reform the monarchy back in August, in addition to their demands for the prime minister stepped down and for new constitution The government really didn't crack down on them apart from some arrests for sedition until now, Just in a matter of seconds. Michael, what happens now? The students say they're not done. They vowed to continue Now we'll need to see how the military backed government one that's long made defending the monarchy, one of its core missions, response to the students this afternoon. All right. Reporter Michael Sullivan in Bangkok. Thank you so much. You're welcome.

Cyber Power Index highlighting Australian Governments gaps in cyber capability

"Like any INFO Technology Sector security has plenty of indexes flooding around or get. Indexes collided by vendors and people trying to sell things to us I thought this for Senate index was. Useful because it doesn't come from I accompany product. It say independent academic attempt to benchmark Com, sub security capability and intent from nation sites It appealed to make per couple of reasons may not have had A to do with Bill Center in the past spend a little bit of Thanh. Talking to their academics in previous roles and particularly locked the way that This report sets metrics that up designed to objectively major subsidy maturity in nations So it says what are the kind of things that we could judge the intent of a nation in the obscurity spice and one of the kind of things that we could use to objectively major capability. And it tells an interesting story in Australia Australia's categorized in the higher intent, low capability quadrant and the reason for that is because when the the objective metrics this reporter applied to the statements made by by government ministers by government departments, entities about what our intent is. Assab security spice. Where about the most ambitious nation in the world for ask security attend? But. Then when you look at what our actual capabilities against that intent on again measured in a series of objective metrics. We fold anti sixteenth in that space. So, FA May that told a pretty familiar story because this over promising on delivering stories. One that I think is familiar to a lot of. People in the Strand security sector. In the context of these trying government's actions since the twenty six, Day sub, security strategy. A lot of announcement to be my bet when you follow up way those announcements. In the years after that have been made you say less deleted then was announced to the media. Will what's on the industry? Kodak in the two thousand, sixteen strategy that was undefended at least out of the Prime Minister's office. This one is looking out at a ten years. The two thousand twenty strategy is looking at at the ten year timeframe. And proposing one point six, billion, dollar funding. Backdrop, but a lot of that is going into law enforcement and as you say might be into that capability. What's your take on the strategy itself? Overall as you say, it's it's another announcement is on the strategy whether it's not as another thing but certainly yet your thoughts on the strategy itself and where maybe else we could have been in twenty twenty from the twenty six danes strategies. Have you have you seen that the two thousand twenty strategy's building on the twenty, sixteen or? Taking a completely new direction. While the that, you can certainly say the why the two thousand twenty strategy is reaction to experience the twenty six strategy That the twenty sixteen subsequently strategy had a very large number of of objectives and Nisha announced under it. I think the government found the experience of trying to implement those very large number projected initiatives again, adopted under outcome Tambo's prime ministership around the breathing bruising exercise because the twenty twenty strategy dramatically rationalize is temptation I'm say that the broad spread of of initiatives and objectives under the strategy a kind of a toddler. Your decide that the Gospel confessed about ninety percent of the funding. Associated with these twenty twenty strategy he's allocated to security agencies So it goes into building. Capabilities with particularly the is day but also other security agencies on. Enforcement agencies like the the I pay, and that's well and good We have I think outstanding internationally recognized capabilities within is. and this is the conduct that you have to keep investing in order to. Maintain those capabilities in my time that that international ranking. Suppose big Criticism that that libraries had is one that we've been exploring for at the loss twelve months and that's really When you look at security policy to strike the problem is the ability to project those capabilities out of the silos of how defense and security agencies. To the problems in Australia Com in terms of lifting a bench, mock the baseline up security security. Brazil and Sada resilience across the Australian government trying economy You know there's a lot of examples of that. Wall is day is absolutely world standard. Saab resiliency combined entities is as at the government's own description reminding at relatively low levels. you know the is days top full became mandatory in the. Seventies ago now. had a slew of a straight national ordered office inquiry since then. when you type them all up on like twenty nine percent of Kamal entities compliant with all the top four. Seven years after theoretically became mandatory say interesting. Is Connect between very high capability. Inside Is Day lower levels of saga resilience and more broadly throughout government not to sign story that we see in the corporate sector unites now at banks and Al.

Shinzo Abe: Japan's PM resigns for health reasons

"Well Shinzo Abe was Japan's longest-serving later and he surprised the world last week with his resignation. Now, alibi had been in power at an early stage in two thousand and six, hundred seven, and that I turn was cut short by the same illness that prompted him to leave power in late August. Now, when he departed politics the first time this is in two thousand and seven virtually all the experts they will wrote obeys political obituary however, one Australian diplomat who has fallen Japanese politics closely for half a century he didn't off by indeed he predicted a remarkable political comeback any kept in touch with our by during his wilderness years. When I buy shocked the political world bartending power five years later in two thousand, twelve that Australian as it happens hit become ambassador to Japan and relations between our two nations became close them. Bruce Miller was Australia's ambassador to Japan from eleven to twenty seventeen bruce welcome to our in. Lobby to be here. Join you. Now tell us more about the night show of your relations with. Well look thanks for the very generous comments. Just made just doing my job and that is getting to know everyone matters and bring influence to ban to advance Australia interests now. I had known since I bet a previous postings in Japan had forty association with the country but I suppose it was when I ride back in. Japan in two thousand eleven as ambassador. That I actually sought him out at a time when he was a down and out he was as you said, he'd step down for the prime ministership in two thousand seven a know what he's going to be pm again now I went around calling all sorts of people in my first few months in the job as ambassador and one of the machine. So I've. Talked to him quite a bit of the year or two between my rival and him returning to the Prime Ministership and where Abbott cover all sorts of things in those conversations. Bilateral relations a free trade agreement trans-pacific. Partnership. Even things like immigration and how to handle the US and how to handle. China. Now, that was a golden opportunity for. But as a site was what any of us would do presented with those those very same circumstance. Yeah. Putting comebacks are fascinating story. you think of Churchill Men's as Nixon Howard Netanyahu and of course, Dr Mahalia what kind of characteristics did obey display that made you think he could defy the odds and mount has spectacularly. Was a capacity introspection for for reflection and for pragmatist dressy learned from where he'd gone wrong and realize it was actually okay to change your mind about how you do things to show that sort of flexibility and you know he reflected long and hard after his failed attempt prime minister as to what had gone wrong. And I think he knew he realized he needed to get the economy right and didn't pay that much attention in two thousand, six, seven also realized I. think he needed to have the right people around him to get things done even if they weren't longstanding loyalists that's where it gone wrong in two thousand six too many loyalists and not enough competent people around him. And I think the last thing he realizes he need to centralize more decision making in the Prime Minister's office. And because again, he wasn't in control controlled with things the time round, those three things I can now let's turn to his record empower in Japan now, this was the Wall Street Journal editorial page quote Abe's i-it's office were characterized by he's multi-front campaign to turn Japan into a more normal country. Now, they go on to talk about domestic and foreign policy is that you'll since tubers. Well third not to use the term normal country it was coined by one of his political enemies isn't used matching inside Japan Americans like to use. But as undoubtedly true, he's done an awful lot across the board As the Wall Street Journal. said to change Japan he's is domestically lay studied I is. Mix. Of made a real difference, they can't call the nominee on a Lloyd success at all deregulation has been slow and monetary policy under Kuroda the Bank of Japan another Arrow. In the in the the three hours in. Avi. NOMEX hasn't achieved its goals of two percent inflation or let alone has Japan achieved its goal of two percent growth. But you'd find you'll find that most senior Japanese business people will sign it as stewardship economically has been good enough and look by Morton international standards the Japanese government doesn't have a bad record frankly every year and has being a signature economic reform but had big trade liberalization with had reformer the agriculture sector We've also had some improvements in corporate governance, more independent directors that sort of thing. There's been some progress on female dissipation in the workforce and more recently a more organized prior grandma foreign labor mobility. Down I call it immigration although that isn't the terminology used by the Japanese government. Now, those things seem participation, the workforce and. Immigration they're only stops they should have been started the years democracy doesn't catch up on you quickly it's a long it's a long term process, but it's still a great thing has kicked off with was. The last ten years with those those policies.

Pompeo: Chinese threat may be worse than a 'Cold War 2.0'

"US Secretary of state might compare has bill named middle of Oprah this week you warning that the threat from China good welby worse than that posed by the Soviet Union at the height of the cold. War Mr Pompeo's visits is taking in the Czech Republic Austria, Poland, and Slovenia. This is what he said yesterday. The contrast between free and unfree society has never been clear. Free nations must work together to confront authoritarian threats. Chief among those threats is the Chinese Communist Party and its drive to control people and information at our economies. When a Balkans correspondent guided Loni has been following his journey. Welcome back to the program guy good to have you with us. I wipe out the with Slovenia with no disrespect obviously to the nation itself. I think far enough I mean it's only two million people live here. So it's not exactly huge, but it is a NATO member and there is a family connection of course, Emma and Mr. Pompeo made that point in his opening remarks saying that he brought greetings for Melania trump who is noticeably absent from her homeland. She was born in San Nitsa as Melania canals and she doesn't come back here very often. But Mr Pompey's said she was very envious about him visiting nurse Levin in particular Lake bled where he was doing his news conference but. The rather factors as well. So Slovenia is at at the moment and this is I wouldn't say was out of character, but it's just a matter of where how the political winds blowing here at the moment at the moment in the Prime Minister's office you've got somebody who thinks Mr trump is rather smashing fallow where prime, minister. Yannis Yansha uses twitter almost as enthusiastically as MR trump and spends quite a lot of that time. Enthusiastically, retweeting Mr Trump's tweets. So if you're going to have a friendly audience in Europe at the moment of your representative of the trump administration then Slovenia's an office place to stop off so more than simply passing on greetings from floaters and enjoying a slap up lunch at Lake bled we've just heard there a clip from Secretary of State Pompeo. Making China the real focus of his visit. He really did, and you only speak for about three or four minutes yesterday bend and I think at least two and a half of those minutes were spent really having a good old dig on against China before that. He was speaking about well, he was actually signing a declaration with the Foreign Minister of Slovenia about five G. Security, and this is all part of pushing what the trump administration calls. They're clean network program, and this is an attack on Chinese. Telecom. Companies Chinese tech companies hallway in particular Zeti threatening for the Balkan they've both been very high profile targets of the trump administration and leave you signing up to this five of this clean network program. You'll basically making a commitment, you'll knocking to use any untrustworthy. Vendors in your five G. Systems and the United States is saying it wouldn't have any of these vendors anywhere near any of its embassies went allowed anywhere near any of this State Department. Systems. A lot of come countries, of course are not signing up to this, but Slovenia has and it's got its five G. Network installed by. As of last month, take that way well has replied China Chinese commentators of wounded central and eastern Europe shouldn't be fooled. What would describes Mike pompeo embracing an entirely entirely cold war mindset it is. It is a dangerous thing. Isn't it when you start going into the likes of the Czech, Republic and Poland and Slovenia, and START TALKING ABOUT IDEOLOGICAL THREATS Yes I'm you know he really has gone the full evil empire on? Am You when you talk about Cold War rhetoric either way that he's he's talking really as I mean, as you heard in the clip there, it sounds like something from the nineteen eighties a talks again chief among these threats as the. Chinese. Communist. Party. It's drive to control people and. Information and our economies, and it's it's again talking about freedom loving people and becoming a five G. Clean country as Slovenia has done today as solidifies staff position. In this fight, the tide is turning against the Chinese Communist Party in its efforts to restrict freedom for all of us and I think what's interesting guys of course he's not saying China he's specifically saying. The Chinese Communist, party so he's criticizing the the system of government and control rather than country and the people itself, and that's I suppose the GATT out card But this is the way that the trump administration is going I recommend everyone to have a a good read of the clean network program just to see what they're saying in that and. Quite apart from anything else it does make it clear and not that it's part of the trump administration's drive and it's very interesting phrasing not the United States, not the State Department but the trump administration. So a spot of electioneering perhaps

beirut explosion latest news

"Some exercises in perspective the IRA bomb which severely damaged Canary Wharf in London in Nineteen ninety-six was estimated at just over one ton of ammonium nitrate Timothy McVeigh's bomb which demolished a federal government building in Oklahoma City in nineteen ninety-five was just over two tons of the same material. The boss which erupted in Beirut's port on Tuesday was estimated at two. Thousand seven hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. One of the biggest peacetime non nuclear explosions in history as Bhai. Route begins the barely imaginable task of cleaning up and is understandably enough growing tear gas was fired yesterday at protesters near the parliament building I'm joined. Now by Lila Milana, Allen France twenty four's correspondent in Beirut Leyla. First of all, you have been visiting the port which was the epicenter of the explosion. I can't begin to imagine where you would even describe such scene but I'm going to ask you to have a crack at doing that the scene is as you say, almost indescribable does smoke still rising from the charred MBA's off. Destroyed packing crates destroyed shelving and it says every kind of. Utility things you'd expect to see in shops. Twisted. Washing machines on the floor items from pharmacies because this of course port, this is the one thirty functional in Lebanon imposed everything and everything was stored than in the center. You have the remains of these enormous grain silos that carried the grain for the majority of the country completely destroyed and parts of them. Still collapsing there you have a aid workers desperately trying to dig people of rubble that's thirty meters deep, and the conditions are horrific temperatures of thirty degrees baking hot sun. The air is thick and brown the smell acrid burning metal and plastic. It really is post-apocalyptic and this goes on for over a mile. Entire poor is just smoking twisted metal and daybreak. Nash. have. You got a clear sense of how widespread the damage across Beirutis. How far can you go from the blast without seeing broken windows? So it. was about nine kilometers where we're still doing things like breaking windows the impact of it and having people. That's it really has spread incredibly far, and it's an uneven spread as well because. What's happened is that the grain ciders positioned in a certain way which meant that it protected half of the city of West Beirut, which historically has in many disasters. Conflicts actually born the brunt of of problems in Beirut and actually deflected the majority of the blast towards the East and the south, which is why a famous areas like Gymnasium Ohio Asha fear completely The buildings there obliterated and one of the concerns now is a lot of. Buildings the older buildings in Beirut the few buildings left in the east of in pre-civil war, which were much loved already, quite delicate on the point of collapse yesterday as people were trying to clear the streets constantly civil defense volunteers trying to pull people back away from these buildings with balconies hanging down stone starting to crumble because of course, that's a huge dangerous. People are still sifting through rubble trying to find loved ones that buildings could. New Buildings that had not yet collapsed could collapse on top of the other issue is that the new builds a lot of them are concrete and speaking to an engineer what can happen with concrete is that with a shockwave blast like this concrete cracks easily under pressure and so that can be in tunnel cracks there that you don't know about in can't be seen from the outside, but the make the building unstable and because there's really been. Very, little help from the government with people trying to go back into their homes, clear up and see what they can retrieve and whether their homes are still livable. Many people going back into very unstable buildings and some living there because they have no other former shelter. So a real risk of further injury as buildings might potentially collapse over the next few days very similar to the aftermath of an earthquake, which is what this is compared to. A among the people who was serving the damage in Beirut yesterday was of course, President Emmanuel Macron of France undertaking a extraordinary spontaneous visit. How is that being received? I mean, it's it's understandable enough that Lebanese politicians don't want to interact at a personal level with the public at the not only for their own safety but is it being regarded as strange that the first high profile politician to to take a walkabout should be the president of an entirely different country? Well, it is strange, but it's not being regarded as strange. I was down on the street yesterday when McCone was was walking through glad-handing the crowd I mean, he really was you know playing up to it and was supposed to be going to Baabda Palace, the Presidential Palace to meet with politicians and delayed that for an extra hour on the schedule to stay with Lebanese people in the streets of course, playing up very much. The fact that he was there to see them he'd said before the visit my main priorities to go and be with the people of Lebanon. And extend, solidarity's to them, and then after that I will be dealing with the political varieties speaking to them. So in the streets, he was absolutely mobbed by people he's hugging people shaking hands with them people coming up tim saying, please don't give those politicians any money that corrupt criminals we don't trust them and he responded to one woman I know you don't trust them graffiti everywhere saying don't give one. Euro. To those Michael help us. So he really did make himself as I say a man of the people yesterday I spoke to a couple of young women afterwards. WHO said to me? That man was more of a leader to us in fifteen minutes than any of our politicians have been where all day no one has come to see us where are they wears the help and later in the day after a lot of commentary that. The. Obviously. Lebanese politicians feeding quite shamefaced one. The justice minister did come down to the streets to try and speak to people clearing up and she had water thrown in her face and chanting protest. Immediately, they're not welcome and that people absolutely fading that the government has no interest in safety in their health in their wellbeing and their ability to rebuild hiding away from them as everybody marshals together to try and get things. Back to nothing like normal but something livable at least just to follow that up finally, regular listeners may recall that you and I were speaking on Monday talking about the resignation of Lebanon's foreign minister and that seemed like a pretty big story at the time He's probably ruin his timing at this point but have you seen or heard anything in terms of actual messaging attempts to help or anything from the alleged government of Lebanon or d you kind of assume that they've all got to the point where they just realized the games up nobody really wants to hear from them anymore. It's quite extraordinary. There is honesty nothing happening in terms of that what the government is doing a lot of finger pointing at each other and previous administrations about who's to blame for this they've put everybody associated with the report under house arrest and saying that they're going to find the perpetrators. But of course, everybody's saying somebody else's the perpetrator on what we know so far it seems that for six years has been ongoing negligence at the highest. Level where a several reports were were built up by the head of the port and have customs sent to the government center the Prime Minister's Office the judiciary about the fact that this was a ticking time bomb and something has to be done completely ignored. So the government is going on about this investigation saying they'll find responsible meanwhile three hundred, thousand people in Beirut homeless, five, thousand injured hundreds still missing, and honestly all you can see on the streets is volunteers. The. Lebanese. breath volunteers, obviously with their ambulances civil defence wanting tears, young people armed with spades and rooms marching down the street just going into people's homes into buildings and sweeping up what they can and moving onto the next one cleaning up themselves. They all said to me of course not here we wouldn't expect anything else from them with the only people who can help ourselves and today international aid. Groups coming in different countries, sending their own firefighters medical support in, and still a complete absence of the Lebanese government anywhere except the poor area learn Milana Allen in Beirut thank you very much for joining us.

Jonathan Luff on Co-Founding an Incubator for Early-Stage Cybersecurity Companies in the U.K.

"I'm not by background attack person I come from a liberal arts background I studied politics in languages at university, and I was fascinated in international affairs I was always interested in history and politics. And that developed into a into a study of international relations, so I I studied. To universities in the UK Newcastle, which is in the north of England, and a Master's degree at Bristol University in the south and it was really. While? I was at Bristol that I developed. An interest in joining the foreign, Service Exams for the for the Foreign Service while I was at university there and I joined the British Foreign Office in in one, thousand, nine, hundred eight, and that took me on a fascinating professional journey, had the opportunity to study Arabic while I was in the Foreign Office and that took me to the Middle East. where I I had a couple of postings. Including some time spent his adviser to UK and US military forces during the war in two thousand and three, and over the course of my my government career over the course of my Foreign Office career I increasingly focused on national security issues. So you know things like counterproliferation, counterterrorism and Cybersecurity, and so that that really took me sort of further towards the the work that I now do but really my my leap into startup space, and and the work that we now do with with cybersecurity companies that was that was triggered towards the end of my government service, I spent a couple of years as an adviser. Downing, street a prime. Minister's Office that was two thousand ten eleven twelve, and around that time there were number of reviews taking place into UK national security, and that flowed some very interesting work around cybersecurity as a as a tier, one, a national security threat, and and you know I I was involved in some of that work. And after leaving, government decided to to make it one of the things that I would focus on. And so, what are you involved with today? What is your day to day like these days? Well since two thousand fifteen with my co-founder grace, cassie, who was another friend of mine from Foreign Service Days A. WE wanted to put in place. A way to support entrepreneurs. In the! Early days of establishing a cybersecurity company we had seen in our time. In government that the this was one of the most important. Challenges and opportunities of of the of the of the decade and we felt that weren't really any. Systems or structures in place to provide the support that was needed. This is fascinating complex area of technology and business, and while there were united some fantastic institutions in the UK there were already a number of significant companies operating this space. We couldn't see the number of innovative new companies emerging that we that we expected to say on the E. found in in somewhat more mature ecosystems like the US, and and to some extent Israel, so we started, Ceylon and Ceylon was A. In early days and experimental accelerator modeled to some extent on programs like Y combinator, but dedicated to Cybersecurity, so we initially Ranna three month program in London, and it's really grown from there and over the last five years we've. We've run ten programs in London and four programs in Singapore and we've had with one hundred companies come through those programs, and so we we spend our. We spend our day odd as in running those programs finding and supporting those entrepreneurs, and then, and then continuing that that support once they leave the program. Can you give us some insights on the state of Cybersecurity and entrepreneurship there in the UK? Yeah well I think it's developed. significantly certainly over the the ten years. That we've been really focusing on this and. Definitely we've seen that. Over the five years we've been running ceylon there really wasn't a a community of of of cybersecurity startups here in the UK back in in the first part of the last decade. We we've helped to capitalize that community here, and there is now a thriving startup ecosystem right across the range of technologies, but definitely in cybersecurity. And I think there are now there are some really quite successful companies that have been set up and developed here over the past five years, and it's now very much part of a a broader technology system here in the UK. And part part of the reason for that is that? The UK has a good reputation in this space, but it's also a a good place to to set up a business if you'll from somewhere else It's been a draw for talent. globally and we certainly saw that in in cybersecurity. We could see the talent. In cybersecurity was was very much distributed around the world. It wasn't just an isolated pockets, and and we found in. Many people wanted to come and. Join our program and get the business started in the UK, and as a result there now you know tens, if not hundreds of of interesting small companies in this field. Is there, even a geographic advantage of of being where you are. I'm thinking you're sort of you. Know equidistant to S- to some of the other important centers of cybersecurity. There's no question. I think you know. Greenwich Meantime has been a competitive advantage for the UK in many different areas of a of business and finance. Over the centuries I think it gives us a genuine advantages being as you say, in time term sort of equidistant between. The economies of the of the of the Americas and those of The Middle East Asia, and that definitely that definitely helps you know having the the economies of Europe on on our doorstep, and you know the last forty years at least strong connections to those economies has been helpful. London has been a melting pot for anybody trying to start a business seek finance and I. Think you know the world the world does come to London or at least it did until we were hit by the pandemic I. Think it will nonetheless emerge from the current crisis is one of the world's great global cities, and and so you know geography masters in Business and certainly been helpful to the development of the cyber ecosystem here.

I spoke exclusively to the UAE finance undersecretary units of about the same. Global challenges as I have stated earlier will affect the region, but he will adopt to that beach in to that talent. And as it was announced. Over the last few months has in the two things tenderly. I that through the ministry of finance or to other entities. We as a minister of finance.

So February twenty nine thousand nine would see the issuance we are aiming to set in. And and hopefully, the market will not change much over the coming few weeks hopefully will reflect into its funding costs who was passed to. They can you give me a sense of the amount that you're looking to the issue. And if you're looking at more issuances later in the overall council administered approver for five billion will be around seven hundred and fifty it all depends on the market and will depend on how the demand from the economy will be on the immigrants. This is at one side, and then and separate track we are working close the central.

Ministerial finance has not intending to issue any of the public debt finance. It's neat because we have already approved budget for the cycle of. Twenty twenty one. So for the next cycle would start working out with a prime minister office understanding that the gap if there is any understanding, what would be the government initiatives, and how we will start plundering and beasts initiatives, so you're currently not really looking into income taxes or corporate taxes is not considering that. But as part of our. The vision that we do from time to time. We just look at the impact if that is the and how this could replace more of.

You mentioned some of the measures that you put in place through twenty eighteen of the retailers and traders investors that I've been speaking to in the last few weeks they've been clear to me that the impact is not as meaningful as they would like to be. Would you agree that more stimulus is needed through twenty nine thousand nine in the United Arab Emirates? We have seen a few stimulus says that was announced it was more. Initiated by the local governments was either. That would be government which was the fifty billion, Dan. It was announced last year. Which will have an economical affect more this year next year. Then we have seen also that the white government of seizing the Ps and reducing some of the feast we finance. We are doing something similar to what the government has done. And also something similar to what would be government has done, and that is more all the Emirates development Bank. So it will be more through the tools that we own rather than Derek thing.

So we're gonna hear a lot about Netanyahu's forays into the Arab world. He showed up a couple of months ago in Oman. Got a tour of the palace by Sultan, Qaboos and his ministers are roaming around Abu Dhabi. He's going to tell voters that he is advancing Israel's interests in the Arab world without giving away the store to the Palestinians. Yells at the political gain for a very long time, and he's proven and again, and again, and again, they he can persevere in tougher times. We are the prospects thing quite clear when it comes to the general election, April nine. Well, it's not entirely a yes. Netanyahu is a political animal, but he's been around for a long time. We're talking about twelve years just the second longest term or time in the prime minister's office of anybody in Israeli history. So Netanyahu is is ready for a fight. He has some opposition. He there is a former general Benny guess who's going to give him quite a fight. And we'll see what happens in couple of months. Jonathan. Thank you very much for that insight. Excellent reporting Jonathan perusing, he's the Middle East politics reporter in Tel Aviv. All right.

That was expected by the market. The stock climbed close to five percent during trading hours, but it closed much lower than that. We should see a continuation off this very positive moment for the name. And maybe if there's any kind of development on determines of the deal, there could be a reaction there as well. In doha. We have investors who showed a very unenthusiastic response to results for the commercial Bank of Qatar. What was it that drove investors away? It was quite interesting to see this reaction in Deauville yesterday Yussef because even though the food the numbers for the full year for the big were quite okay, we're quite positive. We had investors mentioning that the lending book and a total assets they shrunk over the period, and that was not necessarily good news. They also mentioned the performance both in Qatar and in Turkey for the Bank with arch. Also was quite frustrating. If you look overall, okay, it wasn't a terrible set of results. But if you dig into the details. Analysts were not super happy. The stock fell almost five percent during trading hours in Doha. It was able to recover before Detroit dean of the trading session.

"There's a, there's a moment in the film where you at one of the one of the members of the movement says the created this pocket, and it's sort of filled with biblical references as their defense. And that was an amazing moment between the lead prosecutor and the leaders of the movement were the prosecutors prosecuting based on laws and and the is bringing biblical text. I think I think this scene in the movies very significant because it's actually show the clash of the world that's maybe the class, the clash of civilizations. One of the head of the underground was giving interview, and he said, people need to understand that this is a cultural clash. It's not only which is in an internal clash in these really society where we want to be first of all Jewish or festival a democratic state and to their point of view, of course, Jewish come first and when Jewish come, I take it. So the bible come before of the law, at least some of them not all of them hold that position. And it really shows. I think the the core of the argument. The court in at least initially convicts and some of them get long prison sentences. But some of them end up just serving a small handful of years and and even the ones who are convicted of murder, most of them are out within seven years. Why? What happened? So what happens day go to court and the court actually convicts twenty five of them and he sends three of them to life in prison. Convicted murder and the others are giving significant time inside a prison, but then almost immediately there is a moment in the film when I'm asking one of the the ground member, when did they started talking about? You know, part of the new and they and he's laughing. He's saying the talks about pardons starts before the trial, and there is an a big political pressure that coming up from the right wing parties to set the underground member free and you can you have demonstrations, you have rabbis calling to set them free. What's happening in Israel is a big pressure which is coming also on the bed people to, you know, to give them easier time at prison. They were not handcuff. They were put together in one prison units divided into different parts of the prison. They had visitors. The head of the rabbis came to them. The head of the army, just he finished his term in the army and the next day he came to visit down the ground at prison. So like I told you demonstration, enormous pressure to set them free. And eventually they are giving pardoned and like you said, the one who were convicted and sentenced to twenty five years in prison, our only sitting seven years by the end of nineteen Ninety-one. They're all out of prison and what's amazing to see in the movie now that when I asked him now. Will you express remorse now? And they're saying no. And the one who planted the bomb in a Palestinian car said he will probably do the same thing again today and was the end of the of the all initiative to blow up the dome of the Roxie, hey, it's the writing to do so I will not. I will not say that I will not do it because this is the right thing to do just do it. Otherwise. So that's the first pretty shocking revel revelation. But the second is that one of the most surprising things in the film is the final section where you explain what each of these people are doing today, and some of them are quite influential political figures. Can you talk about that a little bit. So so actually, if you I mean thirty more than thirty five years passed since and like I told you in the beginning when I looked at where are the underground members today? It was quite a shock to find out one of them. Is working as an advisor to the minister of agriculture, and he was the one who was doing the negotiation for the coalition for the Jewish home party. That's one of them. Another one turned up to be the most important and influential men in the leadership of the settlers. He has a full access to the prime minister office comes and go as much as you want a lot of connection in the high administration in Israel. Third one is newspaper editor afford one who was convicted in murder. Didn't feel that there is a problem from him to try and join the primaries of the coup, which is the coalition Netanyahu's party a few years ago..
