to combat a. confrontational and story. harvey ventures. one goal. the preservation of our planet. it's not a sinister garden trees and certain paths anymore. it's us that's going to enter from our. passion for stuart's nov 6th form to w. you're watching d w news asia coming up today has the catholic church betrayed its followers in china cardinal joseph dan long considered the moral authority of hong kong speaks out against a secret deal between the communist party and the vatican. and in south korea a new alternative for those who object to compulsory military duty on the list just grounds but there's still a heavy trade off. i'm
5:31 pm
melissa chan welcome to news asia thank you for joining us the catholic church has renewed a deal it made 2 years ago with china which is an officially atheist communist state concerning bishops there the agreement now gives the pope a file say over the appointment of them but beijing is the one who gets to come up with the choices chinese authorities had previously selected bishops without the say of the vatican and a division formed between state sanctioned clergy and underground bishops who operated outside state control the former bishop of hong kong cardinal joseph dan has spoken up about this a pro-democrat he has expressed concern over the church's engagement with china here's the interview with cardinal to china and the facts occurred recently renewed a secretive agreement signed 2 years ago it allowed the. with beijing and the holy
5:32 pm
c.s.a. in appointing bishops in china salma hong kong bishop cardinal joseph sand accused the secretary of state cardinal pyra lynn of betraying the 12000000 catholic populations and your peace the communist regime they always say a bad agreement is better than no agreement ike another the send a bad agreement means a women which is immoral which is against our faith how can it be better than the agreement incredible so is a b b b trailer and i suspect that the police wants to. have these. people much your relation. but that's very bad because that's a political thing it's not religious we are religious so we 1st of all it's our faith. carbonneau sanjo needs to rome earlier this month in hopes to meet the pope
5:33 pm
but in saying he is why reached out the underground charge in china will face even more persecution as state run church again to the chatham a c. from this secret agreement the 2 years since. the things went wrong wrong very wrong. because the the end around receive support from the vatican the older bishops die and. the holy sea don't give new bishops to the underground they give many bishops to the church and now that individual church all the bishops are legitimate. you've made them legit but they are still the bad people are there . and so the end of around here abandon betray because they are those people to the old quality of the pope who cardinal son was born in shanghai 88 years ago he came to hong kong in 1948 just before the communists took power in china he
5:34 pm
thinks the fattah can is on the wrong track of us policy the appeasement policy towards space the pope john paul the 2nd the pub anything they had very different experience they lived and not just. then communism. from russia. the pope comes from south america is and ascended that pope francis had the same body for the communist because the communists in the south america are good people they come out to defend the poor people and the totalitarian military government but now china is i am the communist the commies are the prosecutor. of politic. actually it was a failure in europe but now they use a method for what china so it was a disaster has been an outspoken critic of the communist regime over the years
5:35 pm
that's to put him in rare sun at the national security law imposed by beijing but he refused to remain silent i would be a liar you. say you are not all everybody is what he had to lose is a freedom. but that's ok because. you see we believe in god. when god gave you a duty he is going to give you also the strength to do that ok. for more we have martin jackie religion correspondent joining us martin cardinal sin just talked about his point of view and it does seem as if it's morally complex for the vatican to be engaging with a country like china with its human rights track record what is the point of view of pope francis i think that there is a political concern and political concern is how is it that one deals with
5:36 pm
a government that has had a rough going with a religious group essentially the vatican leads a ripper sentence and the 2nd question is the moral question how we said that the vatican should position itself in relation with a country that has actually a very well established record of human rights violations the position of this vatican it's actually one that is fairly understandable which is studied they concentrate on engagement because they think that actually disengagement leaves the communities the catholic communities in china are very serious disadvantage so the position is not perfect but that is probably because it is impossible in such a situation to actually produce a perfect solution they should hear is if you have people on the ground that are the bend and on good offices of the vatican then the vatican has string gauge with the chinese government obviously this doesn't please everybody and cardinals then it's one of them the u.s. it's another actor in the same position well you just mentioned the united states
5:37 pm
cardinal then had tried to gain an audience at the vatican with the pope he didn't get one another person who tried to meet with the pope was u.s. secretary of state mike pompei oh and he wasn't able to gain an audience what was that about well i think that you know the issue of cardinals then. but much more pronounced with with my compare they come into the vatican or they come had conversations with the vatican and eventually in the. middle of what are very public battles between china and regions i mean in the in the in the media driven african space but also sort of an electoral battle in the case of the u.s. and this is something that the vatican systematically and it's not only this pope has essentially avoided which is getting involved in what are essentially public campaign so this once again this one this pope is one that has done most of his policy his policy work specifically in the issues of international affairs behind closed doors we find out only months later exactly what he said it was happening so
5:38 pm
i think that the reaction the sense it's correct to say that they were parallel i mean the vatican was avoiding the spotlight into which cardinals and make them pay all wanted to pull the vatican in one of the things cardinal dan was talking about was the situation of the climate in china and it is a fact that there are bishops that the vatican recognizes the for the sick right from 2 years ago that the chinese government does not recognize and these bishops have been operating underground they've suffered a throat for their beliefs and in fact my understanding is at least one of them to my knowledge was arrested this year he was 70 he is 70 years old again you feel like some people at least feel as if the vatican has turned its back on their most faithful in china i think that there is. no justification probably in the sense that if china is the government i mean it's actually treating this wake up to the communities and particularly bishops and priests appointed by the vatican without
5:39 pm
essentially the certification of the of the chinese communist party then dealing with the chinese government essentially a form of betrayal but i think that this leads us in a way back to the 1st question which is how is the vatican to calculate how to protect these communities other than to some degree engaging the communist party so i mean it's quite clear that simply getting out of the stage and letting the chinese. overman do as they please it's no solution at all it might be very satisfying morally yes might be very good to be able to say well we have done the right thing in terms of principles but it leaves all of those people that you just mentioned a very precarious situation. now we know cardinals and point of view and feelings is there controversy among the church leaders about pope francis it's this year's most certainly most certainly i mean it's not it's not it's not. it's not a decision i mean the extension of the agreement with china that was taken lightly
5:40 pm
also because there is a very strong internal fight which actually biddy's. story. conservatives within the church against many of the people that circulate around the pope's the pope's sphere so in a way what bomb peo an old zen zen has been saying for really quite a long time especially in the context of bottle study politically have to do a lot with china in the u.s. you know really give a munition to a lot of the people that are standing there criticizing the ball. thank you my pleasure. for years anyone refusing to participate in south korea's compulsory military service to face up to 3 years in jail and a lot of social stigma with the south still technically at war with north korea the government sees conscription as a vital line in the country's defense but now after a court ruling there's an alternative way for conscientious objectors to serve. in
5:41 pm
military service was never going to be compatible with his religious beliefs he says being a jehovah's witness meant he had to refuse conscription. if jesus had allowed war and violence then it would have been the most sacred act but he did not and so i was a follower of jesus i need to take the path of furthest away from violence. for those beliefs jang will go to jail but as of this week he will no longer enter prison as a convict but rather as a worker that stands to a court ruling that now allows alternative service for conscientious objectors at the moment natural tentative service is only available inside a prison. i think it's great there are many ways to serve society. if we work hard under this new system and i believe in the future there
5:42 pm
will be more variations of alternative service that will benefit everyone. this is what most young able bodied korean men are expected to do say goodbye to their families outside a military boot camp and serve their country for 18 months. controversially for the alternative goodbye is even longer jan and his fellow conscientious objectors will have to spend 3 years working inside this prison. the fact we have to be separated for 3 years and i need to raise our children without him really worries me. at least now part of the stigma has been lifted and conscientious objectors like these won't be tarred with the criminal conviction . that for today there's always more on the dot com for slash agent be sure
