6:32 pm
mira has been losing the value dramatically over the past months. and people who appeared in the local currency were selling to actually ro, an $1000000000.00 as saving. so it was a good way of investment and the government has several had several at which was also pushing the price of the lira or the downs of vicious or zachary. so the government has several attempts to stop this fluctuation, but all of their attempts were far how fail. so they did the desperate times call for desperate measures prisoner blind. just a yesterday came up with a very much radical move and says that from no one the losses are originated from did the depreciation of their currency will be compensated by the government. so it's simply given d guarantee to the deposit, which means if someone who has 1300 in his bank account and let's say by the end of the month and circular loses where to buy a 15 percent. so the government will automatically at 15 lira to that account to

6:34 pm
this economy from measure this model is not sustainable because it will require a great amount of turkish lever in the market. particularly the banks are going to require more and more turkish lira, and their central back is going to be forced to print texture more and more by the so that it will eventually cause the dramatic losses in the turkish ran also lead their hyphen fission. the high inflation, this is what economy said, but the government said that is a tamper measure measure. it's not going to be permanent. and as the company is going to head to the election in 2023, the government definitely wants to stabilize the economy. because the economy economy is going to be the main indicator in there. the electro ought to be in a big issue. yeah. all right, thanks so much. russell, coming in, tens of thousands of people have marked the 20th anniversary of what is known as argentina's. great crisis in 2139 people were killed in a crackdown though

a nationwide protests and riots after the government imposed measures to ease large scale that critics say 20 years on the situation in argentina is though different. the government is in the midst of negotiations with the fashion monetary fund to restructure $44000000000.00 it owes to the global fund . theresa bo reports from one as iris. oh. this building housed at disco prior to the cove. it pandemic. but the loved down and argentine has already shaky economy, forced owner, so i can mil to adapt to live. i think if i look at what he has now filled the room with machines used to mine crypto currencies. he's not only doing it for himself, but also for those who want to invest are busy, but i don't, we are good at elac and there what i, when you're in the beginning, it was very complicated and hidden. they sent us an email address and we checked to us valid. there were no phone ups. now everyone wants to do it yet. we rent space
6:36 pm

6:37 pm
already said no, no. there is no agreement with the i m f without adjustments, said this protest is the beginning of a series of moments. we will do to reject which ever agreement our country and our preston signs with the i m. f. as in zebra, n, delaware at the for amanda says they're trying to close a deal that won't affect argentina's most vulnerable citizens. he also says an agreement is essential to get the economy out of the read economy. see a deal is necessary to give argentina credibility in international markets in both so part of the rent up on ethan gra. i think the political survival instinct, i believe, will make the government close a deal, argentina macroeconomy and all the problems we face cannot resist on of a crisis. the agreement with the i m. f is the only tool the government has to establish the economy and generate expectations, which is what the country needs. argentina has had over 20 agreements with the i m
6:38 pm
f. and people here have gotten used to living in crisis. and that's why they have started to find out turner gives like crypto currency mining that they hope would protect them from the fluctuations and instability of the economy at home. that he said, well, i'll just see that when aside is israel's foreign ministry has rejected allegations from church leaders that christians are being driven out of occupied east jerusalem's old city. ahead of christmas, christine groups of accused jewish settlers of harassment. they also alleged that border closures as a result of coven, 19 a targeting. only them. harry forces reports from old city and occupy these jerusalem. well usually at this time of year, the square here in front of the church of the holy separate would be thronged with christian pilgrims in the run at christmas. the omicron search and the very strong travel restrictions imposed. by the way,
6:39 pm
the government had put paid to that in its stead. though in the run up to christmas, we have a route of rep proportions between the church leaders here and the old city and the israeli government. last week, those leaders put out of statements in which they talked about what have been happening in recent years. they say pressure on christian communities throughout the whole land in the form of a tax on churches, desecration, a church, property, intimidation of christian communities. the purchase of christian property here in the christian quarter by what they call radical groups. a reference to the sort of sexual activity over the name it as such that we've seen in recent years. now they are careful in that statement to pay tribute to the israeli government's commitment to christian life to freedom of worship. nonetheless, there has been a very strong rebuttal coming from the very foreign ministry saying that these claims are baseless and distortion of the reality on the ground. they talk about that commitment to freedom of worship, and they say it's infuriating that these church leaders don't talk about pressure
6:40 pm
on christian communities elsewhere in the middle east. the strength of his response follows what we've seen published in the u. k. media in recent days. an article by the head of the latin patriarch it here in jerusalem. also by the archbishop of canterbury, the most senior figure in the anglican church in which he talks about a hot cry coming from christians in the holy land. i'll people in the worst flood hit regions of malaysia being moved to safety. 17 have died. 4 of them were found in sullen gall, the country's wealthiest and most populous region. the government has been criticized about its slow response, which is being blamed on the lack of boats and manpower. florence louis reports from columbia, missouri city villa. yeah. after more than a day trapped in her home by flood waters, this woman is finally been rescued. 2 days of torrential rain last week had caused
6:41 pm
waters to rise swiftly, inundating homes and damaging property. many couldn't leave their houses in time and ended up sheltering on the upper floor or roofs desperate for help. and the roads had become impossible, and the only way out was in boats. those who managed to escape barely had time to grab their belongings. i think i did, but they yeah, i mean we are left with only our clothes and important documents like our children's birth certificate. so that's all we brought with us. we can't bring a lot of things. so we just saved what we could carry with us. i know about some of the 1st on the scene were volunteers who drove to flooded areas and used their own equipment to transport people to safety. i was actually disappointed on the government to provide it for the long term when i not have a lot of people doing your work and all the mom was coming down everything. but is this slow slow, and all this recalls on the policy softener and the government has deployed tens of

all the money the museum is displaying the piece, but they're also threatening legal action if the money isn't eventually returned. the controversy has both driven off attendance an spark the debate in denmark about the true value of an artist's work, which means the constant museum now finds itself in a unique position, exhibiting a piece that some have called art, and others have labeled theft. when we meet haunting in his studio in another town, he explains how inspiration struck. do something about the an average stains in commer. why don't you do something about your situation as well? so, so the next one? no, no, i'm gone to a fantastic piece for the show, harming, says, creating what the museum requested would have cost too much out of his own pocket. he considers the new piece a commentary on low wages and believes that makes it even more appropriate for the
6:49 pm
art show. oh, i asked if he plans to return the money. no, no, no, no, no. did no strictly. that's not gonna happen. back at the museum, we heard what visitors think. brilliant. if someone gave you a lot of money, and i ask you to put the money painting, wouldn't your bid some to it doesn't seem like an art to me. if it's fine brand blank. an argument that won't be settled anytime soon. as viewers continue to ponder, how one piece can seemingly be as conceptual as it is literal. mamma, jim's room al jazeera elbow. denmark still had an al jazeera in scolds. we'll hear from see for the president yanine santino as he makes his case to hold the world cup every 2 years. ah.
