11:05 am
a very cold looking kiev. honda. this meeting between the u. s. secretary of state, the russian foreign minister. how important is it i think is the most important meeting of the, of the week amino as a yes secretary of state's anthony blinkin was here in cave. and then he went to berlin. he heard old parties that he heard the point of view of the ukrainians. he heard the point of view of the europeans, but it is really this meeting that will, i think, paved away at least give us an indication of what could happen next. now, as you just said, the 2 sides, russia and a you as don't see eye to eye on a range of issues. will there be some sort of compromise or will they find actually a starting point. she continued discussions about those concerns that russia has raised. and at the moment the u. s. has refuted many knowing that that would

11:07 am
. this is something ukrainians are very worried about. they have their very real concern, as they say, according to the defense ministry here that now about a 127000 russia troops along the country's borders, whether in the east or in the north, along the border with but a ruse at bay say that this is a very serious threat threat for this country, but they do feel that may be a, you know, these 2 superpowers meeting would deal 1st with their own issues. and then what happens to ukraine would become, you know, a consequence on whether they would agree, oh, not agree, find a compromise or not. and this is a huge concern in this country and hold onto hamid, therefore, us in care. thank you. the kremlin says us may be ready to talk, but not about critical issues. moscow faces, such is the possibility of ukraine joining nato. das jibari has more from moscow where she's been speaking to people about their views. brushes,
11:08 am
foreign ministry is very clear about what they're hoping to achieve from the meeting on friday in geneva. that is, they want to take the next steps on negotiations on security guarantees that they're asking the american government about the possibility of nato expanding further eastward, as well as not allowing ukraine to join the military alliance. that is something that is very much a red line for this country. so that's the official position here. but what the or near russians think about the ongoing tensions we ask them people here in the capital, and here is what they had to say. you moved to women, you put, i think there will be no war. it seems to me that we have the situation from time to time because authorities need to keep people up with something apart from coded, not put his rating is just going down near or i don't believe it's possible that property nations will ever start this war. i wouldn't one t because why, what for to prove war and to him are stand for peace whenever,
11:09 am
when you tell us that you will knows. now, why is the tool needed? i wish we don't make war, especially with ukraine. we are brothers. indeed, that's all i can tell you as the world waits to find out what happens in geneva on friday, many here are hoping that diplomacy and dialogue can continue to be the path forward to try and de escalate the lumen crisis. aid from around the world as being sent to tanya. as the pacific island nation continues to clean up operation after huge volcanic eruption, and soon i'll be there option of the hung a tongue, a hung, a ha pi volcano on saturday, killed at least 3 people. and his blanketed tongue it in volcanic ash. white hay has more from oakland, new zealand. go very slow. all a very much underway now both at a government level and an individual level here in oakland. today we're seeing a huge number of people from the very large tomlin community in new zealand, coming here to donate goods to be sent back to talk to friends and family back
11:10 am
there with me now to talk more about this is jenny salisa who is co chair of the al serra tongue, a relief committee, a tongue and who is a member of the new zealand parliament. i mean, jenny, you must be incredibly proud and overwhelmed with what you've seen here today. this huge outpouring of generosity. i absolutely, and malo allay to see so many talents come through to send care packages full of groceries and bottled water. we know that fruit security is an issue in tongue right now, especially with volcanic ash affecting more than 80 percent of the tomlins back home. you know, sidelines have had toner over the years, but this is, i think, one of the disasters that has had so many parts of toner and to see the thousands of tons that live and out here or new zealand come through. as well as companies, we've had so many different companies coming to donate bottled water and groceries as well because they do want also help out on talent people. i am truly, truly grateful for the response. and we've seen a lot of smiles among the people here, but there must be still
11:11 am
a lot of concern. we know communications are slowly getting back to some sort of normal level, but still a lot of people haven't been able to speak to family members back home. that's right. i've been able to speak with someone directly from ha pie. but i myself haven't been able to speak with all my cousins. i've got hundreds of cousins both and hop i as well as them and the main island. i haven't been able to connect with many of them. so i know from other relatives that they are okay. however, on those out to islands and happy where my father was from we so many of my relatives are from it is really heartbreaking. just saying the coverage, the surveillance and knowing that there are some islands with their unknown life that can be seen. it is really concerning to us, not only the clean up and the fact that it will take years to actually rebuild toner. but actually for us, it's those lives not knowing how many lives are actually lost. we're waiting, waiting patiently to know and find out whether our relatives are. all right,
11:12 am
and just briefly, finally, i mean this is a very proud nation. how will the tongue and people both at home in taller and here in new zealand rebound from us, tomlins are resilient with strong people. where are people that unite and times of struggle and in times of challenge like this? i know that tone with will get through this. it will take a few years to rebuild. but i know that with the assistance of tolerance for, from overseas, ged, pagan toner is made up of about a quarter of thomas g to be made up of overseas donation remittances, from people like the 70000 and new zealand like the over 60000 and the united states and like the many thousands in australia. so i do appeal to a lot of our famous here, please remember our tongue and frames back home and this time of need. and remember the menu please. earlier i spoke to tongue an athlete, peter tau, fatal for who was the flag bearer for his nation. at the 2020 olympics. i began by asking him how his family and tom were doing. it's been a very,
11:13 am
very anxious time. oh, we've been up. oh we've been working quite hard. i just found out that an hour ago, but my father is okay, he's been on quite the adventure. i straight out of the straight off the bus. barbie ended up on the baby vessel. went out at the edge of service or for our 1st 1st contact, 1st aid out to the by islands of been around his way back just today. and he's the governor of ha pyrite. you must be very proud. yes, my very, very proud i. when we didn't hear from him, we didn't get off him, we were worried, but we kind of knew that if he'd be somehow he'd be out there in the middle of it all. and that's, that's why he was i want to ask you, i mean, you made headlines at the, at the 2020 olympics and, and now you've launched a fundraising drive,
11:14 am
talk us through decision making process of using the platform that you've got in the wake of, of this disaster. yes. so i created a gofundme page, thomas to not be released by peter. and i created that with been i had it within, within an hour of seeing the footage of the snobby actually just before communication was cut. the soon as i saw the orders i went, this is, this is not going to be good. there's going to be a lot of damage. i didn't know the exact amounts of damage at that time, but we started that fundraiser. and initially it was about schools and hospitals and now seeing what the need is in other areas where we're looking at how we can best provide initial aid, but also rebuilding aid over over the next coming months. and it looks like it's what's been like just the just strictly trying to get that money where it needs to
11:15 am
go in the sort of immediate often it's been, it's actually been very challenging it's, it's not a quick process. and the reason isn't that the initial late that's gone across has been a straight yet you see what they did that that septic military ships, the military plains, 2nd to that container ships which is being sent across. so even even the, the, all of the work that was being done that is currently being done in oakland. what, what that meant is that our, our team is up, is out there and it's not so easy to get containers at this present moment. so we reached out to people in by the hop islands which most effective and we've offered initially to you know, to cover the costs of bread of you. but i just heard as well that that's how they're short on flour, water, short on food. and this one bakery as only 60 meters worth of fuel less.
11:16 am
so there's a lot of beta, we just logistics of how to, how to build that date. as i heard earlier, you know, tons of resilient known as resilient very strong people. i mean, how do you think that this rebuilding process will, will be i think it's going to be a marathon and not a sprint. so i think be the sprint aspect of it is, is along the lines of getting water across, helping in some way remove all this ass, which is covering $170.00 plus islands so that there's no ongoing respiratory issues as well. but it is going to be a long process and you know, we try to position ourselves to make sure that we're ready to provide that aid for the, for the medium to long term as well. so come on, al jazeera,
