ah, the the taliban says it will no longer last gun nationals to leave the country was fixing access to comple airport to forward is only green source. i confirmed it wasn't agreed to extend the united states to drop deadline beyond august 1st, and us president joe biden, meanwhile, says he will stick to that date despite caused by worldly secure couples that hold for as long as necessary. and the former interpreted words with nato forces during the 28 campaign slammed the british government for not getting the best families relative to the reprisals from noon surgeon. now we empower so i didn't limit grades, but why the children just trying to get back to us?
5:01 pm
the 2nd option, we could very sharon, what we did my family over there trying to get through the telephone check, want to get to choose hello, welcome. you, cisco midnight here. moscow. you're watching international. now we're start with the crisis enough. get this done because the taliban says only 4 nationals will be allowed to access compose airport to so facility, providing flights as of the country. well, powers are in a frantic scramble to meet their own deadline of august 31st for a complaint. withdrawal of their forces date, the taliban has refused to extend while threatening consequences if it's breached in afghan june this described to us life in this country a week after, it was taken over by the militants. 100 and power off. people are waiting
5:02 pm
different. give us a call at for to to, to, to get a chance to get inside of the airport and quit from cobble. but unfortunately people are waiting from 3 days. but today that we will majority of the taliban in a press conference said that there was not a low i've got a call in to have guns that indicated to leave. i haven't got to spend any more. so we're just over a week into the taliban rapids and take over what is life like currently where you are? today i went to the tv and i compare from 2 to 3 days before the teams that they gave back to its normal life. the shops are open, restaurants are open. people or the people came back to the other room alive to the works. but unfortunately, still the government departments are still the buyers. dad, dad, dad bargain, made a big problem for the people in public city because the matches are completely empty
5:03 pm
. the buyers are lose. are people in public running out of money if you go to the bargain that has this of people lighting behind it. bigler when you are the behind the button, but the bunk is a big challenges but that people really getting back together to get a lot to the organ to their life. i know it's still early days, but is there any indication yet that the taliban is delivering on its promise to be more progressive than it was previously when it was empower such as allowing women's rights for instance, while the car on says that we have not made any spectra for the woman. now how, in which, how do you want to go to the work we need to make a specific expect inspector for the telephone until under the time that we make the specter for the title one day asked the woman he said to the home, not do not go to the, to the walls and they will,
5:04 pm
they will get paid the homes. but that has, it probably has a telephone problem with the people before the internet to call. but in the beginning of the day or in the 1st 2nd visit, the telephone is a problem at all the people, which is a good security in the city, people are very secure and most of those including cobra city. but the woman go back, who was our government departments will be open soon. these kind of promises that had not been implemented yet. well, secondly, just held an online meeting to discuss a situation that was no consensus. so on one of the main issues the u. s. the drop deadline of august, the 31st with great fighting to agree on whether to extend the evacuation beyond that date despite please from some of the leaders israeli has more the leaders of the g 7 nations taking part in a virtual meeting. of course,
5:05 pm
the top issue on the agenda was i've kind of stuck in what to do the nation such as the u. k. and frank trying to take the opportunity to plead with us president joe biden, to extend the deadline for evacuation beyond august. the 31st, but joe biden, sticking to that day to those countries, of course, want us to remain at least couple airport to help with evacuation efforts. there are many diplomats and foreign officials sit and i found a song, but of course also africa who selves who works with the occupation over the course of the last 20 years. but we also saw that you are the repeating commission president vonda lion coming forward to speak about whether or not that would be a formal recognition of the title bond. and there will 40 and i've got to start. she said that that's not something the g 7 would consider doubt very clear pre conditions to talk with taliban and show me. she said there are operational talks
5:06 pm
that are necessary for the daily proceedings around cumberland, the airport. but this is completely separated from political talks or any question of recognition. and the g 7 was and is very clear that we have a very strict conditions. and that we stay united in the question of a recognition that is not on the table with the taliban. one question which has been raised as what to do about some of the aid money which goes to afghanistan. it has currently been frozen. and ms. wanda ly, and pointing out that that money can't be given and put forth unless there are some solid guarantees in particular to some of the human systems. this aid is not frozen and is frozen until we have solid guarantees and credible actions on the ground
5:07 pm
that the conditions are being met. and not seen being repeated bar british prime minister, barbara johnson, who said that when it came to talk with the father bon, that's the g 7 did have some leverage. and when it comes to engaging with the, with the taliban and engaging with the government in afghanistan, whatever, it's its exact composition, the g 7 has huge leverage. and today the g 7 agreed we brought them together and they agreed a roadmap for future engagement with the taliban. so that if there's huge funds are going to be unfrozen eventually for use by the, the government and people of afghanistan. then what we're saying is that got this, don contant lunch back into becoming a breeding ground of terror. gastorm account become a naco state. of course,
5:08 pm
there is still the process of forming a government in the future to be had. but the thought about also warning themselves when it comes to this question of whether or not forces will remain enough around the sun beyond august the 31st. they've been very clear if those countries like the us and others don't leave them, there will be repercussions. model on the streets of london, former asking interpreters rallied on monday against what they call the shameful behavior of britain's government. they slammed the authorities for doing nothing to get their families out of the taliban control country and say strange, thank you for putting their own lives on the line. so if i was in day, if i wouldn't say this tape, how do we communicate with the people? how would they find out who is local, who is in surgery. so i did a great job, but why they kill us? why? because afraid why they can get off families really in the home,
5:09 pm
at the operational structures for in today we come in year and they are just trying to get back to us this kind of shame we've, we feel very shame what we did. i myself have a brother who is an interpreter, who was an interpreter for the british forces. he was here at the airport trying to get to the airport actually in the front checkpoint with the telephone, my family as well. so they're trying to get through the telephone check point to get to me while europe is facing major security problems while processing the thousands of refugees who so far managed to get out of afghanistan. because hiding among those fleeing the taliban are convicted. criminals who were earlier to ported from the u back to afghanistan, along with suspects on security watch list in the u. k. in africa. national, for example, on britain's no fly listed make it into the country on a military plane. he was declared to be not
5:10 pm
a person of interest though i was free to go. and in france, pleased and taken into custody, one of 5 evacuated afghans alleged linked to the taliban. that suspect failed to comply with the state home order. meanwhile, in germany, some africans with criminal records who had been previously supported, managed to sneak back in via evacuation flights. interior ministry says it's unable to screen people on the ground in afghanistan. the current procedure is a pragmatic one, which means that security checks on the basis of police findings will only take place in germany. it was deliberately decided that we no longer carry out checks on the spot, but after arrival in germany in women now hungry has said it went except to numb restricted him flow of migrants from afghanistan. adding that the chaos there probably could have been avoided. what we're seeing right now in capital, in other parts of a garrison is frightening. and i think it could bring about an air in migration and
5:11 pm
international terrorism that we didn't want and perhaps could have avoided or made those that chaotic evacuations. we have discussed some of the security concerns with charles shoe bridge, a former u. k. army and counter terrorism intelligence officer. some degree the concern is justified because often you've got a situation where g to the catalytic situation on the ground and we're talking about the ground around an inside a couple airport in some way the list is taking place. it means that that together with the problems that no doubt taking place in people haven't correct documentation. i'm a lot of problems around the actual nice, you know, fly list themselves today. authorities attention many times in the past, for example, in actresses of there's also the ease with which people can get around. there isn't any case, it's not surprising that some cases have arisen and i think we can expect more to
5:12 pm
happen. the more in budapest rushes foreign minister met with his hungarian counterpart as part of his he youtube, sergei, lovegrove discussed afghan. stan, i'm the west handling of the crisis. peter oliver followed the joint east conference. i've got this done, as you would imagine being discussed by the foreign ministers as they address the media set again for all the russian foreign ministers saying that he had concerns that the use foreign policy chief had his priorities wrong when it came to the ongoing situation. global buddies give it to the users you for him. policy chief joseph burrell. immediately after the americans withdrew from the dentist and said, we must not allow of canister to go into the hands of russia and china. if the head of you foreign policy thinks in such categories, then i feel sorry for countries you're forced to hear such a philosophy. and apparently just supported to me, that is not what mr. burrell should be worrying about you. we much rather look to
5:13 pm
the against springing come to their country as soon as possible. i've seen a lot of talk about a potential role that russia could play as mediator with the taliban regime. so to gala, ralph said that russia had spoken to all sides, and i've got some for a long time and that those dialogues would continue with. you might have been helping the african sites for many years. the so called moscow format was created in russia with the participation of china pakistan in the iran, the usa, and the russian federation. and obviously with the form of government and the taliban. and now, after what happened in gaston, on the ground, when a new reality has been created, it will have to do with it. co may the ation code interaction with the aim of creating favorable conditions for the against to reach an agreement on their own, alongside mr. law for off with on gary and for a minister be to see also he said his country was grateful to russia for providing
5:14 pm
the foot nick d. c. and against the cove at 19 virus. he said that without those splitting vaccines, the country wouldn't have been able to get the vaccine rollout that they had. they also said that hungry host to be producing sputnik v inside its own territory. in the very near future us with, you know, spending the, we would not have been able to have the most successful vaccine roll out in the european union. we plan to manufacture the vaccine in the hungarian city of britain, starting at the end of 2022 will be manufacturing the vac thing through a russian license. thus, in the future, we will be less vulnerable for gala from describe the relationship between hungry and russia. as a pragmatic one, you said they didn't let geo politics get in the way of guessing. business done, however, did points out that they don't agree exactly on everything. we've seen him that he has. what we do appreciate hungary pragmatic behavior as with the past doesn't put
5:15 pm
geopolitical and ideological games above the interest of development and the economic cooperation. even though there are and will be some disagreements, what relationship doesn't have any disagreements every now and again, but the overall take away with the message of for the tire cooperation, which was a phrase, there was a multiple times 5 votes for ministers that they folks here in budapest, israel reporting now and the crisis in afghanistan, wikileaks is drawing attention to its past revelations about america's longest war and a series of twitter. post the organisation republish, classified us documents, which it 1st lead to the public a decade ago. back then, we can expand to shooting the songs warned that the u. s. intervention would be an endless war. beneficial to only a few, a correspondent on quarter as the story. the swift fall of the afghan capital cast a dark shadow over every sacrifice made in the fight against the taliban. but there
5:16 pm
is a man who tried to stop things from going down this road. his name is julian, a son. she is the co founder of wiki leaks, and behind one of the biggest revelations in u. s. military history. in 2010, the whistleblower group released the afghan papers for the 91000 leak reports that shed light on the grim affairs. the u. s. was for understandable reasons hesitant to share with the public the unvarnished ground level picture of the word of god has done that is in many respects more grief than the official betrayal of the biggest leaks in u. s. military history. a devastating portraits of the failing war in afghanistan
5:17 pm
when these reports came into the public eye, washington's reaction was not to say, sorry, or even to try to deflect a guilt. instead, it shifted the blame on 2 songs, calling him a criminal for apparently putting american lives in danger. what he likes, walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service. it is an attack on the international community. julie, this is engaged in terrorism. he should be treated as an enemy combatant. so a psalms put american lives in danger. when he showed the world how us soldiers actually killed innocent people, how publications documented their involvement in a case by case level in the death of more than 20000 people in afghanistan and more than 108000 people in iraq. and so when you want to distract from this, you just make the same accusation to the, to the person that is making accusation against you. wiki leaks determined that the 2006 operation medusa resulted in one of the highest civilian death tolls of the
5:18 pm
war. despite the shocking circumstances surrounding the event. it was poorly investigated. an american soldier was killed. they called him an ac 130 gunship. this is a c 130 cargo, refitted with canons on the side. it circled overhead and rained down shells the warlock say $181.00 enemy were killed. the logs also say there were no wound, little captured. it was a significant massacre. the afghan papers go on to suggest that the cover ups began with those actually carrying out the slaughter us soldiers reporting on their own actions, appeared to lump civilian deaths with the number of insurgents they had killed. wiki leaks revelations also shed light on special task force. 373 and a lead unit tasked with hunting down taliban leaders. many times though, they were involved in the killing of civilian men, women and children,
5:19 pm
and washington later trying to water down the situation with misleading information about what happened. one example of this was when the task force fired rockets of compound quoting nefarious activity there. but it was apparently not the case. it does appear to be evidence of all crimes in this example is the task force free 73 high miles missile strike on a house which killed 7 children. nato later recognized the children's deaths they had caused, but said that initially they had no idea they were there. the colossal price americans, taxpayers paid. needless suffering caused the fall of a corrupt, failed state. why did all this continue for so long? one answer is gigantic profits for giants of the military. industrial complex with stock returns from 2001 to 20. 21. for government contracted companies like lockheed martin and northrop grumman totaling more than 1000 percent. it's one of
5:20 pm
many, seemingly inevitable consequences of what a san claimed is a money making scheme of endless war to use and then wash the money out of a way out of the base of your back into the head of that in all my goal in to having people no wonder the west may want to bury the truth and condemn julian a song whose fate is still hanging in the air as he faces 175 years in prison. if extradited from a u. k. jail cell to the united states. don quarter that we talked about us policy in afghanistan with june. this taylor who can also form a whistleblower barrett. brian i think the u. s. government to some extent it doesn't really know what it's fighting for nor the funding for the regular thing as
5:21 pm
such. it's more of a reflexive sort of series of power plays by individuals in the government. the basically that the manner in which the u. s. has a pedal, whistleblowers, journalists, leakers facts even before dropped him to office. had i think a ball into a, perhaps, to a, to all time low and things had non prove and a lot of 656 years i think anyone who knows that they're talking about has to look at the us as a wild animal and go from there this is not the 1st time that jolina sanchez was correct in his assessment related to us foreign policy. i think we're having conversations about us wars in the middle east and in particular afghan, it's dan, it is so important to talk about julian authority and would you be contributions? i think the united states government is speaking to make an example out of julian authority to show other journalists, this is what can happen to you if you expose the u. s. military industrial complex
5:22 pm
. and if you embarrass the us government wiki lead showed us through the ask in war diaries in the iraq war, love it. these were crimes were not happening here. and there, this is with some sort of rare occurrence. there were civilian casualties on a regular basis in wiki leaf expose that we should be thinking, joanna sergeant, we should all be advocating for his immediate release because this was certainly public interest journalism. i, poland pans, to build a wall along its board with better. ruth and double the number of troops. it has station that to oppose a recent influx of migrants. that is the countries are on alert over surge, refugees, as we said from afghanistan, but also iraq. we are dealing with an attack on poland. it is an attempt to trigger a migration crisis. we will not allow the creation of a route for the transfer of migrants via poland to the european union. neighboring lithuania also plans to complete his own bella,
5:23 pm
russian port of all next year. those the countries along with fellow member states, latvia and steven year to say that better it has been facilitating the search of migrants is a form of hybrid warfare, supposedly in retaliation for sanctions against minced. meanwhile, poland government doesn't fish. it has sent a central license to dozens of migrant stranded on its board with batteries or so recently came on the fire from rights creeps over the trap. refugees which to include women and children. they are said to have been stuck at the board for more than a week. poland has denied the men tree saying that they are the responsibility of the race. what a form of vice chair of the european council on refugees and exiles, keith, bess says that will building by such countries has previously proven to be ineffective . we remember 2015 hungry built a wall against refugees coming in from serbia. i mean the these measures which may be particular. busy to better route lithuania is now trying to build a wall,
5:24 pm
v you money against batteries, for the same reasons as, as potent. so it seems to be an endemic problem that people keep on wanting to build walls. sadly, they're not very effective in achieving the objectives, but the originators want the answer is to have an international agreement about how to deal with migration flows that are caused as a result of war or oppression. or. busy change in regime countries coming together, not trying to so these things individually as countries by building the piece of work. but actually by having a concert, i'm afraid it is one of the massive failures of the european union as an institution. i mean, it's been based upon nimbus. i'm not in my backyard. so every country has to be exclusive in saying it's not prepared to take refugees.
5:25 pm
and usa america is back in vietnam. that is the curious slogan. the u. s. government is now using is vice president kamala harris arrives in illinois to strengthen economic ties, that after her arrival was delayed over a health incident. according to the u. s. embassy that on teach john hardy as the detox, curious and somewhat alarming way to start the trip that said, vice president harris pushed ahead with her trip to vietnam, arriving in hanoi right around 10 pm local time there. it was delayed several hours . however, because of a health situation, according to officials in hanoi and now the u. s. embassy, there released a statement reading quote. earlier this evening, the vice president traveling delegation was delayed from departing singapore because the vice president's office was made aware of a report of a recent possible anomalous health incident in hanoi vietnam. after careful assessment decision was made to continue with the vice president's trip. you're
5:26 pm
probably wondering what the term anomalous health incident means. well, it's basically the u. s. government term and, and essentially code word for the have on a syndrome. it's a neurological condition defined by, among other things, dizziness, nausea, my range and memory loss. and i got the name after american official based and of course have on a cuba 1st reported experiencing the symptoms back in 2016. and since then, there been dozens of other cases actually more than 200 and counting of us state department. ca, embassy personnel, and other us diplomats and officials reporting the symptoms in china, russia, and most recently, actually vienna austria now at least 2 embassy staffers were reportedly sickened by these symptoms in hanoi and will at some point, reportedly be met evac out of no way for treatment vice president harris meanwhile did not take reporters questions upon landing in vietnam, her spokesperson said that the delay had nothing to do with the v p health, adding quote, she,
5:27 pm
as well all. busy is fine and looking forward to meetings and her noise tomorrow. john honey with that update. so you're watching our team to national thanks for company tonight. so i will be back with more stories in the back office. i is your media a reflection of reality in a world transformed what will make you feel safer? type relation for community you going the right way? where are you being direct? what is truth? what is faith? in the world corrupted, you need to defend the join us in the depths
5:28 pm
will remain in the shallows. ah, in the mark i took my punch in. you would like to get somebody else to another. do y'all done? got that. i've got that limit and i wanted them to be like that. you know the left me about the less about i get up there for us. let
5:29 pm
me use the the i am kaiser. this is a kaiser report. let's take a trip down memory lane through the history books, talk to my cio. politics as it was a 100 years ago, 150 years ago from some big brain sewer looking at the big map and how that's relevant today. stacey. well, our upcoming guest, dan collins tweeted something that blew my mind and it fits into a lot of what the cause report has been talking about for the past while the past
5:30 pm
decade. and you know, that whole region of the world of the 2 cities trap, the silk road, china, china, emerging, and all the problems happening in afghanistan, the middle east, that certain area of the world. and we're going to look at something called that i just learned about. but i'm going to read you the wikipedia because it's really interesting in light of what's happening with the u. s. poet losing an afghanistan . and then around announcing that they say that they're joining their officially going to be accepted and the shanghai cooperation organization, which they have not been and the previous 2 times they applied. so the geographical pivot.
