a year since the taliban took control of afghanistan comes as concerns of security growing earlier this week. and i so suicide bomber assassinated him major taliban figure, and a u. s. drone strike in kabul last month. killed al kite, anita. i am and i was over here, be in an exclusive interview is i'm have been job aide, spoke to senior taliban, nita and us a connie about the since the signing of the agreement, we have been honoring all obligations. we dare anybody to give a single example or a single occasion where our territories were used to undermine other countries. security. a statement made by the islamic emerett explaining its position was very clear, hasn't we are committed to the doe? it clearly such healthy obligations when i place on us as well as the u. s. if any violation was committed, it was the u. s. who entered our territories without permission, even without notifying us. this was a clear violation on the part of the u. s. theirs is a malicious propaganda aimed at smearing the image of the islamic emerett. we
12:09 pm
reject and refute these false claims. and i reiterate, we have not violated any of our obligations under the doha agreement. we are committed to honoring our obligations while wished to see the other party honoring affairs and live up to their responsibilities tray in which levin france is enduring. it's dry a summer since records began. most of the country is now facing water restrictions crops, a withering nuclear power plants are operating a reduce capacity in rivers of running dry. let's cross over to ben smith used any by for us in to lose in southwest, in france. so been a, any sign of any rain monic the certainly hoping for rainy habit in the forecast today, but obviously it's just the some cloud cover not taking off the worst of the heat that there's been hair over the last month or so, but no sign of rain has been pushed back until later into the week. and one of the phase is that if that rain comes in enormous storms, which is what is predicted,
12:10 pm
it's going to just bounce off this bone dry ground. i'm standing on the bed of the river got on and ordinarily of course i shouldn't be able to do this, but excuse me, but without the rain, while these rivers are running dry and crops a dying before the farmers are able to harvest them, i was always and is, i'm, is, is i've never seen the river as low as this is stephane, marty tells me he's a fisheries officer in a normal year. the level of the garon here would be above our heads. the river cuts through to lose. it's the cities life blood providing drinking water, irrigating farmland, and cooling a nuclear plant. stefan has had to take fish out of the river and put them into special tanks because the water is too warm, thick on to give us unfair to put it here. where they are, it's complicated. everything is connected. there will be less snow in the mountains . the glaciers will melt sooner. this year there has been much less snow, so less water in the mountain lakes. so pumping of the lakes is lower to keep the
12:11 pm
water longer. over 3 weeks, 40 percent of the water held in reserve in hydro electric dams, in the pyrenees mountains has been released into the garron to keep it flowing just heat waves in europe are increasing at a faster rate than almost anywhere else on the planet and global warming increases the likelihood of drought drying out soils and vegetation. laven firewall ha minimum. so sometimes you make up a local company. so after muscle, we need 60 millimeters of rainfall to be able to replant the soil. crystal carpentier tells me, the forecast is for 3 millimeters this week. it's not enough. no. the corn harvest across france is expected to be 18 and a half percent lower this year than last. there's already a global shortage because of the war in ukraine. even the sunflower of turned away from the scorching sun, where there is access to water, there isn't enough to go around. crystal says she'll lose more than 30 percent of
12:12 pm
a crop this year. soon, apostrophes are mangled. if we don't get enough water in this region, there will be no viable agriculture. even today, the cattle farmers here have no grass on their fields. to day we own a land where it's crucial to develop irrigation. if only to be able to achieve minimum profitability. frances worse drought since records began in 1958 has affected so many aspects of how people live here. and i think we, we, we reward or not, we, we love train don't cake. and we reward because there is not enough waterfall for the foot. in july rainfall across france was down 84 percent compared to normal. according to the french weather service. the summer isn't over yet. now, every part of france is under some sort of water restrictions. and 2 thirds of all
12:13 pm
departments are at the peak crisis level. and one of the concerns is that on the ground water tables are also running. unusually low because they are being replenished with rain water. so they really need it to rain. nick, that rain that we needed right across europe and thanks for that spread reporting as still had here on out 0. 0, la mammals protest is demand more than fine words from the internet community to risk their lives to oppose military genta. the daily cost of living increases sincerely own rampant inflation, pushing families into extreme poverty. ah hello again. time for your worlds weather update. we're going to begin in australia

12:15 pm
louis 36 degrees tuesday and wednesday. that means that will be your 16th and 17th day so far this year above $35.00 degrees. so you're further solidifying that record if this forecasts holds seo later. ah, pro democracy activists risking their lives fighting autocracy. i know that i might go to prison so i will join the ra democracy may be exposed. the struggle of those who believe democracy is worth dying for we never know when an opening is going to come. when a fruit vendor is going to emily himself and say enough is enough. my life a democracy on how to 0. ah,
12:16 pm
blue ah. hello daniel, watching out 0 mind about top stories. i saw the man suspected of opening fire on people in vehicles and occupied his jerusalem as handed himself into police. 8 people were injured in the attack on sunday morning. man is believed to have shot up pedestrians and passengers on a bus. and in a car, donald trump facing prussia aust reports his lawyers, signed a statement in june, confirming all classified material had been returned. that would be at odds with this week. seizure of 11 sets of classified documents from his mar, logo home, or for some nurse to is no longer on a ventilator and talking to being stub 2 days ago. at the man accused of attacking him is us born, hide the matter? his pleaded not guilty to attempted murder. protested ma'am, i want the military jones to be held accountable under international law for
12:17 pm
executing political activists 3 weeks ago. the called commerce democratically elected former leader ang santucci, is expected to testify in court this week in a series of corruption and election fraud cases. tony cheng as this. oh, another flash mob, protesting against the recent executions on the streets of young gun and mas biggest city with caught a risk being jailed a was the demonstrate to say the executions had made their opposition to military rule even stronger. and one day the general's will face justice blow your mind and then it's a gaunt, should hold the spot or turn to leaders and a military accountable for what they have done. no exception for anything. that's what people strongly belief now. for the families of the executed men, the anguish continues. these pro military protest has came to denounce german, you known as co,
12:18 pm
jimmy outside his house. after his execution. his wife seen with him in his family video and fled the home. but she told l. desert from a hidden location for the international community must do more than just condemning the execution. i'd like to emphasize the importance of impact in diplomacy. not just talking about a topic in diplomacy, condemnation, and urging do not work, especially in the case of our country mamma. while there was much condemnation of the executions at a recent meeting of southeast asian foreign ministers, there was little talk of measures against mere mars military. others are taking a more proactive approach. i will chris gunner's new co jimmy when he was a student activist. and it worked with him after his release from prison. now he's trying to bring a criminal case against the gender in the turkish judicial system. so the gender can run, but they can't hide. there will be accountability against them just as there was against the war criminals in the balkans. it took years and years from
12:19 pm
a loss of rich and character, managed to end up in the hague, but they did up and they did end up in the hague. we imap house accountability cases, criminal cases against the john to all around the world at the international court of justice in the hague man. mars already in the door. in late july, the court dismissed objections saying that a case brought by the gambia for genocide against the ringer, ethnic minority can proceed. although the trial may take years, the wheels of justice are in motion. tony chang al jazeera. now the pacific island, the vener 2, has launched one of the world's most ambitious climate policies is already carbon negative, meaning it absorbs more than it produces a vanity, is committed to 100 percent renewable energy in electricity generation by the a 2030. and it wants to establish a loss and damage finance facility to support vulnerable communities. the island is pushing the international court of justice to issue an advisory opinion on climate
12:20 pm
change hom, implementing these measures will cost nearly a $178000000.00 for the country that is rated most at risk of natural disasters by the united nations. so let's explore this further. we can speak to tegler cooper, whose director of climate change resilience at the secretariat of the pacific regional environment program joined us. now from samara, appear in summer, taylor savannah to his in fact, 2000 kilometers g or east. but all the pacific islands, including of course summer in clear and present danger before we get into this, just describe, 1st of all, why the situation is so serious and so imminent, where you are. thank you very much for this opportunity. it is, it is extremely serious. we got the most rollerball count trees, and we are most the most mongrel countries in the world. there are several our mazda. how, like at charles,
12:21 pm
we show only the highest point to start at 3 meters. if there is a, we are already affected by very sophia, with the events and the ability for pacific islands who are developing countries to absorb shock and build back better, is becoming more and more difficult. and this is why as a collective grouping, the pacific will not move away from the cultural 1.5 degrees. so what, okay, alive when it comes, action being required is not a question of tomorrow. it is, it is now is no. what is it here that, that venue i to has done that that should now make the world sit up and take notice o lun lactose one of 5 countries in the pacific to submit a submit their 2nd. ah, andy said, but what on what to has done now is really put a spotlight on multiple countries taking the lead and really showing
12:22 pm
true leadership in the efforts to ah, in mitigation and adaptation. and when to walk to his special in that it is also calling for climate finance and loss of damage where the cupboard is bare basically for pacific island countries. so it's this leadership despite on watches, negligible emissions. betty is it is important. it's a court and proud model family to see that it's more pacific island countries. i doing this despite negligible emissions. then it's a quote for the global family, particularly developed countries to step up and submit in o n d c's ramirez, who wants hundreds of prepared to do the kids to commit to in order to reduce emissions run correct. it is the national determined contributions. what the
12:23 pm
country will do yet in order to reduce that, and you will scale your credit, you sent yourself, but a lot to as committed to ah, had no dependence of fossil fuels by l will to the 2030. it's that kind of leadership that's needed. now it's a kind of leadership that the pacific has been calling for it. every single opportunity market to engage in finance is also come up with a the precise amount of money that's required, a $100.00 and some j. a 1000000 by 2030 and, and thus that's groundbreaking as well. because a criticism of the rich countries has been that of the less wealthy countries have not been able to declare about what they require. he said, not think that that's actually, you know, in the easy way act to set to make that the argument at the developed i, you know, the developed world hasn't delivered on the $100000000000.00 per year that was committed. it's commit,
12:24 pm
certainly 2020. and now you see 11 two's costs and they're not just develop the plane if costs are displayed and that's significant because that will show that the commitments fall way below what is necessary. and that's just one country. oh, this has taken, it wasn't something the government developed over like it's taken a lot of an assessment. it's taken a lot of consultation it. hence it can, it's miss document. it really is a well structured, well analyzed, well articulated and a couch. okay. i'm glad to see which one, and i'm finally finding the financed it to fund climate. reparations are for those countries that we're not responsible for the climate crisis that we're now in the climate emergency. we're now it will of course be a big focus of debate at the upcoming climate summits in egypt in november. how
12:25 pm
critical is it that some, some real resolution comes out of that? we always talk about it and nothing ever seems to arrive as far as finance is concerned for the poor countries. well, you know, how critical it is time. a lot of people as think time is running out for out of the garlands on the front, on the front line. if, if we could sit at that time, has already probably run out. but and mrs. white saw imported for a global collective action to reduce emissions to 1.5 before we even carry on doing any kind of discussion. an 8, it's critical to know a lot in the ne, jumped it up and that was critical last year and glasgow was critical of every call . but now it's becoming even more and more urgent and pacific allen countries are really um, ah, what's the answer collected very strong in its ambition and move as one group because we share this big osha,
