8:02 am
a sensor of defiance. really reflects the kind of prevailing view in taiwan at the moment where the majority of people would be equally resistant to all of these overtures, the increased in pressure from mainland china and saying when referred to that, saying that this was pressure was being exerted by china more and more, and the taiwan simply cannot afford to relax. she spoke about the increasing assertiveness of china in the east c a. with these a sometimes aggressive gestures and posturing, evidence the incursions by up to a 150 warplanes from china. just last weekend. i'd also spoke about are the example of hong kong and the experience that hong kong has gone through in recent months, the erosion of a certain rights and freedoms that used to be enjoyed here under this implementation of this national security law. and she said that that should serve as an example, and also
8:03 am
a warning to the people of taiwan when it comes to this whole question of re unification. as has been mentioned again by the chinese leadership saying, when's position is that at the that's the island of taiwan. it's future will be decided by its people and that the future is in it's people's hands. oh, thank care day. well, yeah, the relationship between timeline and china will be achieved by negotiation. we will keep negotiating and show the world that we're committed to self defense. however, no one can force us to go the pathway that is designed by china. because that road will not lead to solidarity and freedom for the people of taiwan during the whole as a robust there. thank john. has president she shing ping that talking yesterday about peaceful reunification. yet he's increasing the military component of that pressure . what calculation is beijing making here? do you think a sheet in thing is made it his mission,

8:05 am
to be the case that with it says supplies of more sophisticated weaponry from the united states. taiwan had this guarantee, a technological advantage over mainland china. that increasingly is not the case, and the people's liberation army has quickly been closing the gap. but the other calculation for china, it has to take into account is that mold that it pushes. the more pushback that seems to be a, from the taiwanese people. in fact, saying when it was re elected on an increased majority last year by a people who are increasingly alarmed at these threats from a china. and so the more that the china pushes the it has to be careful that there isn't i a reaction to that, that the more resolute the people of a tie one become a to continue on the path that they set for themselves. all right, a rama bry live for the in hong kong. rob, thank it. now voting underway in iraq to elect any parliament. and

8:20 am
a meeting at the highest level. now bring together civil society from states that still apply the death penalty in order to convince their leaders of the importance and urgency of abolishing it one. and sierra known as abolished it's death penalty . the president julius motto b of signed the abolition bill that a ceremony in the capital free town. it will be replaced with a maximum penalty of life in prison. no executions have taken place in sierra leone since 1990. 8 for the husband was systems to removing the death penalty completely . sierra leone is the 23rd african country to abolish capital punishment. when matthew manguno is an attorney in pennsylvania, he says, some governments are using the death penalty for political gain. i think it in a lot of ways the death penalty is driven by politics. ah, you know, people want to seem as though they're tough on crime and it's a way of getting your, your, your bon, a cds for being tough on crime by saying, you know, we support the death penalty. and so,
