2:16 pm
a certain mechanism for the benefits of the people as of the 3 countries aged probably in support of the iraqi government pockets towards diamond ring back at the national stage and supporting the end of the country in order to protect double doesn't to protect the endless of iraq, iraq is age, it rejects categorically all external intervention, all aggressions in iraq or again, is the iraqi territories. we urge everyone to respect the board does the great iraq . and that's the option that president l. c. c is saying that egypt fully supports the iraqi government and achieving stability and restoring its historic regional role. iraq needs to be part of

a pan arab cooperation which needs to be expanded. let's bring enough mahmud up the way to the regional conference in baghdad and very much receiving the full frontal support of the delegations at the conference. well yes indeed, nick, it's clear from this speech is delivered by the leader so far president of the frank macro king of the law of jordan. i mean to me of book and we just have all a stress on the fact that the stability and security of iraq is since look for the stability and security of the whole region that also entails supporting iraq. according to a macro of france. that intake supporting gate or continuing supporting iraq and it's fight against
2:18 pm
a tourism. remember this is this tech can summit. there has been also other summits over the past year. and that also entail can on the integration with regional power. last june, the have a rock hosted summit and it cannot mac integration summit with jordan and egypt. so iraq by hosting such comments as trying to regain as i feel like it's a positive, effective rule and region. also, it's worth mentioning that does not only political, there's not only economic and security summit, it also entail the political issues, political, crucial issues and the region, remember, saudi arabia and iran are invited. and there have been talks about bilateral meetings between delegations of both countries. iraq has been also involved in
2:19 pm
talks by folks, has been also involved in mediating between rival power to in the region including get towed and iran. so iraq bite, this is trying to send a message to the committee that it is he to feed back to the country to continue the fight against tourism quickly. the fact that the producers of ice and have been rising great lead on will continue supporting iraq and terrorism that's being just from it like that. thanks my reporting from the middle east summit where the national leaders from the region have been going back to our top story. and i'm pretty strict to to end the evacuation mission from afghanistan and the coming out . but the head of the case, onforce, it says hundreds of people entitled to resettlement in the u. k. will be left
2:20 pm
behind. i'm afraid it's absolutely heartbreaking that we can't bring everybody out . and i think that points be made very strongly certain by the said section. others have lost them 10 days or so. personally, i've probably had over a 100 messages from different afghans who i know in my long association with the country. and many of those friends of mine would make it out for me in another day, possibly my without me having a bit of a chair in my about sort of that or let's get more from that. bob jones is life from london and not him. so the evacuations in today it shows the case concern, but many going to be left behind. absolutely, and you heard that admission and the desperation of a sadness from the chief of the u. k. on forces. ben carter said that there were very few flights still to come back to britain. well, they carried on friday night into saturday morning u k. u time, but it's just in the last hour a royal air force plane has landed at
2:21 pm
a base in oxford show north of london carrying members of the military, some of the 1000 or so personnel still based in afghanistan. so it seems that the military pull out has already started, and of course that happens that has to start happening once the civilian evacuations a done so it really does seem like the civilian evacuations are being wound up. and nick carter has put the number of people eligible to come to the u. k. on the repatriation lists, but who haven't made it at what he said the how you hundreds on friday the government was saying 802-1000 afghans and then 10250 british national. some sources in the u. k. believe it's significantly higher than that, given the high number of calls, for example, m p. 's have been receiving from constituents with relatives in afghanistan and charities. here in the u. k as well. whatever the case,
2:22 pm
the u. k is saying that it's done the best in the circumstances. those were the words of nick carter. they've got almost 15000 people out since mid august. it has been chaotic. it has been extremely upsetting and distressing for those people who made it through let alone the thousands of people who have been trying to get into cobble airport and have failed. now the government is stressing that this is not the end of its efforts. there's a lot of, it's been sent to members of parliament by the defense secretary, the foreign secretary and the home secretary. and the last for hours, insisting that they will continue to use every leave that they have to try to get people out of afghanistan who pay for their lives. know to be those who worked with british forces or with british non governmental organizations. but they haven't said exactly what they can do right now and nothing but what's been the reaction in
2:23 pm
the u. k. it's what's been unfolding, and that's going to stop when they come, there has been a lot of concern and expressions of really discussed from some quarters. the way some of the operation has been handled. that was before the terrible explosions that we saw outside cobble airports. because many conservative members of parliament have been saying this is effectively a betrayal of africans who worked with british forces over the years in afghanistan . and particularly interpreters who put that lives on the line as a similar message from human rights groups. here in the u. k. who say that it simply was left to relate the, the, the practical logistics of getting people onto those flights. i've been in touch with people here in the u. k. who say it's been left to individuals,
2:24 pm
to citizens here, to, to, to campaigners to try to actually get afghans who they know are fearing for their lives through the airport gates on to planes. and there are many, many witness accounts. now here in the u. k. of, of people who being told now not to turn up at the airport because the flights are ending and because it's a dangerous place. but who has the paperwork, they had the right to come to britain. but in some cases would just turn back by members of the british armed forces who are overwhelmed. they were at the same time trying to secure the airport along with the americans and also deal with paperwork . it was an impossible situation. there are cause for some kind of accountability as to what happened now. all right, i didn't think so. that's another rather the in the in china has dismissed at declassified us reports on the origins of code. 19 colgate
2:25 pm
political manipulation. it shows intelligence agencies a divided over where the virus began, but agree wasn't developed as a buyer weapon. current of ours was 1st detected in the chinese city of hon in 2019 . the intelligence community says chinese need is didn't know about the virus before the pandemic began, but they couldn't agree on whether it was 1st transmitted from an animal or league from a lab. well, russia has reported its highest month the current of our death toll since upon them it began revise figures from state statistics. agency ross that i show more than 50000 people died from 900 or related causes in july. and that brings to total number of just more than 365000, which is the 4th highest in the world after the u. s. india and brazil. less than a 3rd of russians have been vaccinated, which is well below the government target of 60 percent by the autumn. russia has no lockdown measures in place. the scene is unpopular, had
2:26 pm
a parliamentary elections in september to all of which is a political and listen lead experts at the center for actual politics. he says it's still unclear how effective locked downs can be in reducing cove at $900.00 related death. while the russian government knows very well that strict stringent lockdown measures that were instituted last spring, were extremely popular among the russian population. in fact, there were even some civil disturbances in the area called the north in the south of russia last year. during the lock down, and of course, ever since them, the russian government and local officials decided to deal with this epidemic with this medical crisis. in less strict ways. russia is
2:27 pm
in the 4th place as far as guarantors, depths. of course, the united states is the poor thing officially more than $700000.00 deaths. and even though the population of the united states is more than twice the size of the russian population. but those figures are also quite, quite high. so the it is still a question as to how, how effective for a large balance and other measures have been around the world. since we have seen that even the countries that have instituted a lot of downs have kept serious issues with their death rates as the united states did as category one, hurricane is made landfill in cuba and is making its way towards the united states as a major hearken, julian wolf has more fierce winds, batter cuba coast as the streets of the capitol. havana light empty. hurricane ida hit the caribbean islands, south west toppling trees and tearing roofs off home where the strong winds has
