10:02 am
with taliban rebels amid reports of positive steps being made towards a deal zalmay khalilzad held six days of talks with taliban representatives in the qatari capital doha key sticking points on the go shaking a cease fire and a time frame for a withdrawal of foreign jury from afghanistan the u.s. envoy is being cautious in a series of tweets he said that significant progress had been made on vital issues but he warned that some issues are yet to be resolved and he stressed that a cease fire must be a result of afghan dialogue that's a reference to the taliban's refusal so far to negotiate directly with the afghan government. for more on this i'm joined from kabul by correspondent. ali thanks so much for joining us today now there are reports of significant
10:03 am
progress in doha what are you hearing there in kabul. well right now in kabul or waiting to see what the government here has to say about the information that's on my hollywoods our brings back we know that there have been several sticking points in these discussions things that both sides see is very important to their demands a potential settled peace in the country so the two main issues left are a troop withdrawal which the taleban say that they have done that they have have denied that they've reached an agreement on a foreign troop withdrawal and also a ceasefire which is very important to the afghans right now of course the biggest issue is the fact that this is all being presented to the afghan government without their direct involvement in the process alley which side has the stronger position here. the truth is you know that. both sides seem to want out at this point and definitely i think with the trumpet ministrations
10:04 am
determination to get out of afghanistan at any cost this is becoming much more reality because since two thousand and one the taliban have wanted to negotiate directly with the united states and never got the opportunity to there were indirect talks in the doha artifice when it opened and in the years leading up to its opening in two thousand and thirteen but there was never direct talks up until this moment so the u.s. has a lot of. pressure at this point and they also have a lot of reason to get out you know trump is very adamant that he wants out of afghanistan and potentially any cost now the afghan government still needs to be brought into the loop but so far the taliban have refused direct direct talks with the gap with the government so far what would you say to that. i mean it's been sort of their messaging from the beginning you know they've always said that we want to speak to the decision maker and tell them the idea is that the decision
10:05 am
maker is the united states and these talks may actually you know bear that out because what we've seen is that in six days the taliban and on my highly doubt who is representing the united states have made more progress there's more positivity coming from these are my feelings are from secretary. mike pump ale and even from the taliban who despite denying you know a ceasefire or a troop of drugs did say that there was progress. so that the afghan government is left out but a lot of decisions are being made without them and it seems that you know the trial about may have been right and there calculus. allina teef in kabul thanks so much and you. venezuela's top military on voyage to the united states has defected from president nicolas maduro his government his move triggered by the u.s. decision to recognize opposition leader one go i don't know as venezuela's interim
10:06 am
president the european union has also thrown its weight behind and called for a fresh elections president maduro says his government will not be dictated to by foreign nations. the trail of two governments challenger won wide laying claim to the presidency while the official government is still in office quite a welcome the european union's move to align itself with the us recognizing him as president and less new elections are called going to be first thing i want to do today is to recognize the european union's firm steps toward supporting venezuela. steps in supporting and recognizing the democratic struggle in our country. that is different riley the government of president nicolas maduro pushed back in strong terms you don't have what i don't know so the european union has given us eight days go to hell when it's open as well and don't take orders from anyone yeah
