india he had to first of all he had to do this u. turn or he would do a u. turn if he came back to the negotiating table to sort of like start exploratory talks he's held accountable for an historic election defeat so he's very much weakened in his position of course bought a new government would be in his interest if there were new elections for instance if you follow the scenario then he could not under those circumstances be the top candidate for the s.p.d. party ever after having or after being held accountable for this historic election defeat of his own party so he's in a very difficult situation right now but of course he also is trying to any decision that is coming in following now he was trying to put this on solid grounds and this is why he wants to get his voter base approving this decision and he wants time for that to get the best deal for his party to negotiate social democratic

1:07 pm
fear of their safety francis has walked a diplomatic tight rope over a growing humanitarian crisis more than half a million people have fled here to escape persecution in neighboring myanmar these range of muslims aren't even recognized in that country forcing the pope to balance diplomatic niceties with his moral imperative. on thursday after meeting bangladeshis president used his sharpest language yet on this trip but you can avoid it identifying the ranger by name. is imperative that the international community takes decisive measures to address risk grave crisis not only by working to resolve the political issues have led to this must displacement of people but also by offering immediate material assistance to bangladesh in its efforts to respond effectively to urgence human needs. francis isn't sure jewel to visit this refugee camp close to the myanmar border but nonetheless the focal point of his
1:08 pm
trip is a meeting with a range of delegation in dhaka. let's bring in d.w. south asia expert center pictures and she just returned from a reporting trip to bangladesh and she's here with us in studio hi sandra you did visit some refugee camps in bangladesh what did you hear what did you see there i mean the sheer dimension of these camps which are all in the south of the country around the city of cox bazaar is just mind blowing if you walk through the camps you see that the influx has been very very sad and we spend quite a bit of time in below kali camp which is the second biggest after a long and this part of kali camp at the moment hosts about three hundred fifty thousand which you know very sudden influx so you see how it's made of bamboo and plastic you see you know open sewage running through the camp water sanitation is a big big issue you see latrines being set up right next to hand pumps you know or bore holes to get. drinking water but the drinking water if you take samples about
1:09 pm
eighty percent that's what we heard a contented with e. coli bacteria leading to infectious diseases like acute watery diarrhea and there's also a drive you know to immunize people like cholera and it's spreading amongst children and just to keep in mind more than fifty percent of those refugees are children status children because there are neither a tony m r nor in bangladesh talk about a very dramatic situation facing those refugees and it comes at a time when the pope is visiting bangladesh and catholics there have also been under pressure how important is this visit then for them i mean for them it's the first visit of a pope since the mid eighty's and there are a tiny minority in bangladesh i mean below zero point five percent actually and there have been. attacks against christians as well as against other minorities and of course there is fear where does this hatred you know the hatred against the

other come from who are the people behind the rise of intolerance that we've seen bangladesh on a political but also on a religious level we've heard that the pope has had to be very careful in how he can address the refugee situation although he has condemned the plight facing where he has not said the word for him to for example what can he do to help i mean a lot of people see him as a messenger of hope as a messenger of peace and yes he steered away from using the word. calling them what they are a stateless people for diplomatic reasons i assume but i mean he did draw attention to their plight he did ask the international community to step in even more you know to accelerate their help because bangladesh alone simply is not coping and he also very diplomatically asked for a political solution because that is what is really needed to give these stateless people a home and the only home they have known for you know decades is rakhine state in
1:11 pm
one market and you said that bangladesh is struggling to cope six hundred thousand were going to refugees have crossed into bangladesh can bangladesh support this community alone no i mean these six hundred something thousand has been the influx of the last three months alone there were other huge refugees you know entering the country for that so you know if you look at the overall figures we're looking at over a million people that need to be supported and of course being stateless being refugees it means you have no access to schools to health. let alone talking franchise or anything like that so really they are totally dependent at the moment on international help and they hope that is given to them by the people of bangladesh . views asunder pictures money has just returned from reporting in bangladesh sandra thank you for your insight. now to some other stories making headlines around the world argentina's navy says it has given up all hope that the forty four
