1:08 pm
streets of bangkok on his long seven kilometer journey now the king is being carried by sixteen people on foot circling the city he's passing three temples ways paying homage to images of buddha so this really is a huge ornate precession a chance for thailand to show wall really after all this is the first coronation that they have seen here in seventy years to the day and challenged people have been waiting for this moment for quite a while they must speak a grit sense of excitement not up to actually going to see the newly crowned king. that's right well there are tens of thousands of people here the government estimates two hundred thousand people here many of them bussed in the there was free buses there were free trains trying to get as many people here as possible to give them the opportunity to see the king and also to pay their respects to the king this is a country where the king is has
1:09 pm
a defined status so people here really do want to come out and show their support for him in fact we saw we spoke to one man not so long ago who'd walked six hundred kilometers in order to be here for the celebrations days that just gives you a sense of just how much many people here in thailand feeling about this carnation . how they're feeling about these three days of extremely elaborate ornate celebrations the shock the monarchy is hugely revered in thailand tell us a little bit more about the newly crowned a mob achieved along cong. yes well he's been on the throne since his father passed away in twenty sixteen so he has been the monarch here since then that we don't all fall lot about in the course of fire graphy we know he spent his early years here in thailand he then was educated in the u.k. and australia is an officer in the time military we know as well how he wants to
1:10 pm
reign as a monarch he issued his first group mind yesterday and he said that he wants to reign for the benefit and happiness of the thai people that was his first model is very similar to the the first command that his father gave to my seven decades ago to the day so we know also about his new wife that came as a bit of a surprise to some people that he was married just a few days before the carnation we've seen a lot of his new wife over the last few days she's been part of these elaborate ceremony and now the new queen of thailand and shot a child simple in the midst of all that celebration and festivities in bangkok thank you so much. turning out to be good with pope francis is a drive and the captain so feel on a two day visit to the european union's poorest country the pope is expected to discuss the complicated relationship between the catholic church and the get an orthodox church which is the dominant religion in the balkans country but it is
1:11 pm
opening address he took up an issue that is close to his hot the plight of refugees the pontiff urged big area which has taken a hardline stance against mass migration to open their hearts to quote those who knock at your idol. and from what i'm joined in the studio by martin religious affairs analyst a welcome mat in the book has begun his visit in bulgaria by the beginning of the vague touchy subject of bulgaria its hardline stance on refugees tell us more about what the pontiff said and why well indeed i mean it is it is not only a controversial issue as sort of as actually projecting himself to the very center of the political debate right now in bulgarian to be quite honest i mean beyond sort of the european the european discussion immigration journal bulgaria has a coalition government which brought in to bring two government to central extreme right wing or right wing parties both of them with very strong untamed gratian
1:12 pm
positions. and the government has gone as far as to actually call for building a fence between bulger and turkey. and the thing that is quite interesting is that in fact very often these parties are actually very close to religious groups and religious positions so this entire thing means that in one sense it is sort of the usual pontifical approach to trying to bring out the message of reconciliation but at the very same time i think that this can be read and heed ought to be read as a direct confrontation with a certain brand of politics that has really taken hold in much of europe and of course it ties in with the pontiff so a message of compassion talking. reconciliation bill france is also going to meet the head off they've given all the ducks judge but the actually have to say he will not have a joint mass with him what is it to us about relations between the two churches well this is actually a pretty strong rebuke particularly because i'm about to and had been quite open
1:13 pm
about its expectations to actually hold must to go there and be able to sort of. put away the friends in or there to you know show reconciliation both at the level of the liturgy you know really has one of the most complicated i mean the bulgarian orthodox church as one of the most complicated relations with the vatican and a lot of it has to do with the fact. that the lease is so it's really a small minority and you know way i think that what you know the about to get it's kind of pointing the finger to it's not only you know in relation to immigration to those that come from the outside but really also about you know those people that are actually belong to minorities and can see their to being somehow marginal or not authentic elements of sort of the communion inside vulgarly itself. so to say the other outside but also the other inside bulgaria it is quite clear that there are the church that actually has a strong association being a national church with nationalist nationalist movement that's not find this very
1:14 pm
comfortable and has actually decided to go the magic road they're sending a choir of children to events but they will not actually hold together with the pope say what is on the pope's agenda brigade well mostly i mean the conversation will be about. immigration as we have seen in the integration of marginalized communities but it seems that economic justice will also play a significant role he has already been talking about that is pointing to the fact that he's visiting the country that he's the poorest in the european union in the blog. and essentially talking about the plight of people that are sort of suffering under those kind of economic condition at the same time i think that the. sort of bag is really the question of a nationalist or even to tarrie in popular so that in different forms us move through a political system and it is not only a day thirty call to the principle of the church as a universalist institution but he seriously and i did ted to go to this particular
1:15 pm
back to see that has a very strong commitment to ideas of integration universally someone humanitarianism. thank you very much for sharing your expertise with us my pleasure up next was stories is that among the touching on behalf of the need of this is to have you with us. where i come from we have to fight for a free place i was born and raised in a new tell me the danger ship with just one t.v. shadow and a few newspapers with official information as a journey i have worked on the streets of many characters and their problems are the same fourteen social inequality a lack of the freedom of the press. work on the form.
