6:11 am
while many ukrainians want an end to what is described as europe's forgotten war these protesters accuse him of surrendering to russian president vladimir putin. zelinsky was elected in may on his promise to end the war that began in 2014 when russian backed separatists occupied cities in the east of ukraine. it's not only cost thousands of lives. but also destroyed large parts of the country taking a huge toll on the economy. in 2016 peace talks stalled with both ukraine and russia accusing each other of fire agreements but after becoming presidents alinsky broke the stalemate that is agreed to have elections in russian backed territories and allowing them a special status both nations exchange prisoners and some troops will withdraw all going to ships are in place for a return to the negotiating table but expectations for
6:12 am
a major breakthrough are low yeah only they would cease fire violations and there's little trust between the 2 sides but analysts say the fact that the talks are happening since you have a group that is looking for a positive outcome. and that's perhaps because another part of ukraine is not up for negotiations in paris crimea which was annexed by russia 5 years ago. we took crimea and the worst will just accept this because. interested to go back to business as usual. the main outcome of the normandy talks for putin is the fact that he is welcome again in europe's power circles this is exactly what these protesters in kiev fear most that european leaders tired of the war and sanctions against russia it's good for selenski to accept major compromises for example in the timing of the elections in the territories at the center of the

6:17 am
a blockade. reports on whether the summit might offer a new beginning. for the 1st time in years there are signs that a diplomatic dispute that has paralyzed the gulf region may be easing that's according to statements made by a qatari foreign minister ahmed abdullah fani during a conference in rome on friday we have moved from a stalemate to some progress where there are some talks. that took place between us and. specifically and saudi and we hope these talks will need. to our progress where we can see an end. to 4 of the core of the crisis. this is the last time gulf leaders put on a show of unity that was in riyadh in may 2017 a few weeks later saudi arabia u.a.e. behind an egypt cut diplomatic ties with qatar accusing it of funding extremism and
6:18 am
building closer ties with iran qatar has repeatedly denied the charges and rejected a list of 13 demands by the blockade in countries which include closing a turkish military base downgrading ties with iran and shutting down the aisle to 0 media network. the u.s. has called on its gulf allies to and their feud fearing the rift might undermine its 1st to contain what it sees as iran's growing influence in the region the signs are they are but at the same time despite these 2 are momentous steps that have been taken over the past weeks we know that to know why diplomatic initiatives have so far over the past 2 and a half years taken place with our robust u.s. diplomatic pressure and a background that have been signs of possible deescalation in recent weeks saudi

arabia the us. bahrain took part in a gold football tournament held in doha reversing an earlier decision to boycott the event and many are not waiting to see if the same effort and cool ration will be in place to the crisis that's begun in june 2017. 0. political crisis in lebanon shows no sign of ending after a main contender for prime minister withdrew from the race so america tape says lebanon's tops any religious authority backs the reappointment of a former prime minister saad hariri he resigned in october after weeks of anti-government protests politicians were scheduled to meet on monday to pick a new prime minister but the president postponed that meeting to next week people are angry over corruption and sectarianism. taliban and u.s. negotiators have resumed talks aimed at ending the war in afghanistan president donald trump halted those meetings in september of following the killing of a u.s. soldier now he's hoping for a solution before the 2020 presidential election tony burke has more from kabul.
6:20 am
when president trump abruptly canceled the talks with the taliban in september he said it was because of the killing of a u.s. soldier he said the talks were dead but many believe it was because it was felt the u.s. was giving away too much or too little but with the resumption of talks in doha observers say they are starting where they left off with no change one thing is for sure the u.s. led coalition the united states of america is very keen to put an end to disprove that was started long back there had 9 rounds of talks in 2018 in 2019 and perhaps this is the time where it needs to be done and dusted the afghan government has been sidelined from the previous year long dialogue because the taliban refuses direct talks but president ash afghani's government bolstered by a series of military successes is quietly optimistic that now the talks will lead
6:21 am
to a place at the negotiating table few months ago. was an defense position . and the fence of position in. we took the money district from taliban we are doing much better in the hay with that that is too important and one. ceasefire one of. both of these demands have been rejected by the taliban in the past but president trump talked optimistically about a cease fire during a visit to u.s. troops in afghanistan in november where he also met the afghan president asad afghani taliban wants to make a deal and we're meeting with them and we're saying it has to be a cease fire they want to do is use fire but now they do want to do is use fire and i believe it probably works. but so far the taliban has not responded to that claim the afghan army with u.s. air support has been taking territory recently but the taliban still controls more
6:22 am
than 50 percent of the country it's unlikely the taliban will agree to a cease fire before there's a definitive signed agreement for a u.s. troop withdraw it's still in a strong position and a cease fire is a valuable bargaining chip it won't give away easily afghanistan has been in political deadlock since his presidential elections 3 months ago the results are still not been released because of allegations of widespread vote rigging and fraud that is unlikely to help the peace process the taliban has said the war is now about time and money and it has the time president trump is keen to reduce the financial burden and bring the troops home and he wants that done before next year's presidential election for such a complicated issue that may be an overly ambitious time frame tony berkeley al-jazeera kabul there are reports ports of entry send stranded tourists after a ball kaino erupted at the east coast of new zealand
