11:59 am
suffering from is a deficit of diplomacy and we need more of that in order to be able to stabilize the region i do suspect that there are things taking place behind the scenes and i do suspect that ultimately both sides will realize that it is to their benefit to increase the diplomacy but at the same time in order for diplomacy to be worthwhile parties need to live up to their obligations and there are good reasons not just for the iranians but the europeans and everyone else to be very wary of the trumpet ministration mindful of that large number of agreements that the trumpet is in breach of right now. a former australian archbishop convicted of covering up child sex abuse has avoided jail time instead phillip wilson will serve his twelve month sentence in home detention after the court was told he has early stages of alzheimers disease he's the highest ranking official in the roman catholic church to be said to covering up child abuse. has more from sydney.
