7:02 pm
are waiting different, give us a call at for to to, to, to get a chance to get inside of the airport and have a quit from call. but unfortunately, people are waiting from 3 days. but today that we will on with the person of the taliban in a press conference, said that they will not have guns calling to have guns that indicated to leave. i haven't gotten 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 teams that came back to its normal life. the shops are open. restaurants are open, people or the people came back to the normal life to the war. but unfortunately, the still, the government departments are still the buyers. dad, dad,
7:03 pm
dad bargain, really made a big problem for the people in public city. because my shoes are completely empty . the parents are flu, that people are probably running out of money if you go to the bargain that has this of people lighting behind it. bigler, whether you are the one but the bunk rate is a big challenges, but that people would be really getting back to it to get together live because i want them 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 that telephone. 2 for the woman now, how do you in which, how do you want to go to the work we need to make an i expect a specter for the telephone until under the time that we make it better for the title one day asked the woman he said, to the home,
7:04 pm
not do not go to the to the walls and they will, they will get paid the homes. but has, it probably has a telephone problem with the people before to enter, to call in the beginning of the day or in the 1st. second, the telephone is a problem at all the people, which is a good security in the city. people are very good and most of it including cobbler city, but they will not go back. who was our our government departments will be open soon . these kind of promises that has not been implemented yet. of course that was my colleague con bray, earlier speaking to a journalist in afghanistan. now president joe biden said in his latest speech to the nation that america evacuated more than 70000 people from afghanistan in august . we also warned of the threat posed by the terrorist group, isis came and stressed that the august 31st exit date is contingent on the tele
7:05 pm
bonds cooperation. we agreed that we will continue to close our close cooperation to get people out as efficiently and safely as possible. we are currently on a pace to finish by august the 31st. the completion barger study 1st depends upon the tale bon, continuing to cooperate and allow access to the airport. for those who are transfer, we're transporting out no disruption to our operation. your by an earlier discuss the situation in afghanistan with g 7 leaders. the group failed to agree on whether to extend the evacuation beyond august 31st, despite please from some r t. if lee has details the leaders of the g 7 nations taking part in a virtual meeting. of course the top issue on the agenda was i've kind of stuck in what to do the nation such as the u. k. in france, trying to take the opportunity to plead with us president joe biden, to extend that deadline for evacuation beyond august the 31st. but joe biden,
7:06 pm
sticking to that day to those countries, of course, want us to remain at least couple apple to help with evacuation efforts. there are many diplomats 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 european commission president vonda lion coming forward to speak about whether or not that would be a formal recognition of the tyler bond. and there will 40 and i've got to start. she said that that's not something the g 7 would consider that very clear pre conditions to talk with taliban and astronomy. she said there are operational talks that are necessary for the daily proceedings around cumberland, the airport. but this is completely separated from political talks or any question
7:07 pm
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 is what to do about some of the aid money which goes to afghanistan. it has currently been frozen. and ms wanda lion pointing out that money can't be given and put forth unless there are some solid guarantees in particular to some of the human rights conditions that the west have put on that aid. we have 1000000000 euros set aside for the next 7 years for afghanistan in the development of systems. this is now frozen. and it is frozen until we have solid guarantees and credible actions on the ground that the conditions are being made.
7:08 pm
and that theme being repeated bar, british prime minister, barbara johnson, who said that when it came to talk with the parlor bond, that the g 7 did have some leverage. and when it comes to engaging with the, with the taliban, 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 i've got this, don contant lunch back into becoming a breeding ground of terror. dennis tom, a comp, become a naco state. of course there is still the process of forming a government in the future to be had. but the thought about also warning themselves
7:09 pm
when it comes to this question of whether or not forces will remain in upfront beyond august the 31st. they've been very clear if those countries like the us and others don't leave and there will be repercussions. meanwhile, in london, former ass down interpreters rallied on monday against what they call the shameful behavior of britain's government. they slammed authorities for doing nothing to get their families out of the telephone controlled country. it's a strange thank you. they say for them placing their own lives on the line. if i was a day, if i wouldn't say this tape how they would communicate with the people, how would they find out? who is local, who is insurgents? so i did a great job, but why the kill us? why? because afraid why they can get off families in the home at the operations such as for in today we come in here and they are just trying to get
7:10 pm
back to us. this i kind of shape we've, we feel very show what we did myself, have a brother who is an interpreter, who was an interpreter for the british forces. he was his guarantee at the airport trying to get to the airport actually did it from checkpoint with the tolliver, my family as well. so they're trying to get through the telephone. so going to get to the europe is facing major security problems while processing the thousands of refugees who have so far managed to get out of afghanistan among those fleeing. the taliban are convicted criminals earlier repatriated by the you to have kind of stand along with suspects on global security watch list. now in the u. k. and after national on britain no fly list made it into the country on a military plane. he was declared, however, to not be a person of interest and was free to go. and in france, please have taken into custody. one of 5 evacuated afghans alleged to have links to
7:11 pm
the taliban. that suspect failed to comply with a stay at home order. in germany, meanwhile, some previously deported aft ends with criminal records, managed to sneak back in through evacuation flight. the country's interior ministry says it's presently 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 and it was deliberately decided that we no longer carry out checks on the spot. but after arrival in germany, meanwhile, hungry has said it will not accept an unrestricted flow of migrants from afghanistan. the country's state secretary has underlined that the chaos there could probably have been avoided, which were seen right now in capital. and other parts of garrison is frightening. and i think it could bring about an error in migration and international terrorism
7:12 pm
that we didn't want and perhaps could have avoided while the evacuations continue, we've discussed some of the security concerns with charles to bridge the former counterterrorism intelligence officer. some degree the concern is justified because often you've got a situation where g to the logic situation on the ground and we're talking around the ground around an inside capital airport in some way the unit is taking place. it means that together with the problems that are taking place in people haven't correct documentation. i'm a lot of problems around the actual nice, you know, fly lists themselves. that have been what today authorities attention many times in the past, for example, in actresses. there's also the ease with which people can get run days. in any case, it's not surprising that some cases have risen and i think we can expect more to happen. meanwhile in budapest,
7:13 pm
rushes foreign minister met with his hungarian counterpart as part of his you tour said a lot of disgust. i've got to stand and the west handling of the crisis. there are 2. peter oliver followed the joint news 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 minister saying that he had concerns that the use foreign policy chief had his priorities wrong when it came to the ongoing situation. global yesterday, but if you were to users you for him, policy chief judge burrell, immediately after the americans withdrew from the dentist and said, we must not allow of dentists 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 you countries use force to hear such a philosophy and apparently to support it to me that is not what mr. burrell should be worrying about and you, we much rather look to the against springing come to their country as soon as
7:14 pm
possible that has been a lot of talk about a potential role in russia could play as mediator with the taliban regime. so to gala, for all said that russia had spoken to all sides enough, gone for a long time, and that those dialogues would continue with numerous. we have been helping the african sites for many years. the so called moscow form, it was created in russia with the participation of china pakistan in 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 made 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 the foot and the back seat against the cove at 19 virus. he said that without those
7:15 pm
threatening vaccines that his country wouldn't have been able to get the vaccine rollout that they had. he also said that hungry host to be producing sputnik v inside its own territory. in the very near like us, you know, for the exam, we would not have been able to have the most successful vaccine roll out in the european union. the plan to manufacture the vaccine in the hungarian city of the bridge and starting at the end of 2022 will be manufacturing the vac thing through a russian license. the in the future will be less vulnerable for gala from describe the relationship between hungry and russia. as a pragmatic one, he said they didn't let geo politics get in the way of getting business done, however, did points out that they don't agree exactly on everything. we've seen him that he has a whoop with my dish. we do appreciate hungary pragmatic behavior. as with a past doesn't put geopolitical and ideological games above the interests of
7:16 pm
development and 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 time 5 votes for a minute says that they folks here in budapest, one of the crisis in afghanistan wiki leaks is drawing attention to past revelations about america's longest war. in a series of twitter post the organization republished classified us documents, which at 1st leaked to the public a decade ago. back then ricky league founder joined the songs warned that the u. s . intervention would be an endless war. beneficial to only a few. our correspondent don quarter takes up 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 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,
7:17 pm
and behind one of the biggest revelations in u. s. military history. in 2010, the whistleblower group released the afghan papers more than 90. 1000 leaked 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 in many respects, more grief than the official betrayal to one of the biggest leagues in u. s. military history. a devastating portrait of the failing war in afghanistan. when these reports came into the public eye, washington's reaction was not to say sorry, or even to try to deflect
7:18 pm
a guilt. instead it shifted the blame on to assad's 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 sounds put american lives in danger when he showed the world how us soldiers actually killed innocent people, how publications documented their involvement as a case by case level in the death more than 20000 people in afghanistan and more than 108000 people in iraq, and so when you want to distract from this, you disconnect the same accusation to the, to the person that is making accusation against you. what do you, leaks determined that the 2006 operation medusa resulted in one of the highest civilian death tolls of the war? despite the shocking circumstances surrounding the event,
7:19 pm
it was poorly investigated. an american soldier was killed. they called in 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 wounded or 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 appear to lump civilian deaths with the number of insurgency had killed. wiki leaks, revelations also shed light on special task force. 373, and a lead unit task with hunting down taliban leaders. many times though, they were involved in the killing of civilian men, women, and children, 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 set
7:20 pm
of compound quoting nefarious activity there, but it was apparently not the case. it does appear to be evidence of all crimes in this material example. is it possible it's 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 american 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 2021 for government contracted companies like lockheed martin and northrop grumman totaling more than 1000 percent. it's one of many seemingly inevitable consequences of what a san claimed is a money making scheme of endless war to use wash money out
7:21 pm
of a way to base your back into the hand of a truck. that is the goal. my goal is to have in 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. extradited from a u. k. jail cell to the united states. we discussed us policy and i've kind of stand with journalist taylor who dock and former whistleblower barrett brown. i think the u. s. government to some extent doesn't really know what it's fighting for, nor the funding for the regular thing as such. it's more of a reflexive sort of series of power plays by individuals in the government. the basically the manner in which the u. s. has a pedal, whistleblowers, journalists,
7:22 pm
leakers facts, even before dropped him into office. had, i think a ball into a, perhaps, to a, to all time low. and things had not improved and was 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 join a sanchez was correct in his assessment related to us foreign policy. i think what having conversations about us wars in the middle east and in particular, afghan, it is so important to talk about. julianna's staunch, and would you be contributions? i think the united states government is seeking to make an example out of juliana songs to show other journalists. this is what can happen to you if you expose the us military industrial complex. and if you embarrass the us government, we can lead showed us through the afghan war diaries and the rapport loves it. these were crimes were not happening here. and there that there was some sort of
7:23 pm
rare occurrence. there were civilian casualties on a regular basis. in wiki lease, expose that we should be thinking, joanna sergeant, we should all be advocating for his immediate release, because this was certainly public interest journalism. poland had plans to build a wall along its border with bella, luce, and double the number of troops. it has stationed there to oppose a recent influx of migrants that as you countries remain on alert over a surge of refugees from afghanistan and 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 while neighboring this, when you also plans to complete its own, the russian border wall next year. those countries, along with fellow member states, lamphier and stone, usa, bella, luce, has been facilitating the search of migrants as
7:24 pm
a form of hybrid warfare. they claim this is in retaliation to you. sanctions against mit. meanwhile, polish government insisted has sent essential items to dozens of migrants stranded on its border with bellows, where saw recently came under fire from rights groups over the traps. refugees who include women and children, they are said to have been stuck at the border for more than a week. poland has denied them entry thing. they are the responsibility of fellers, a former vice chair of the european council on refugees and exiles. keith best says while building by such countries has previously proven effective, 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, really lithuania is now trying to build a will v you money against better is for the same reasons as,
7:25 pm
as potent. so it seems to be an endemic problem. the people keep on wanting to build walls. sadly, they're not very effective in achieving the objectives of 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 war. but actually by having a concerted effort, 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. busy to take refugees, america is back in vietnam. that's the curious slogan. the u. s. government is
7:26 pm
using to compliment vice president. common harris has a rival and hon. noise to strengthen economic ties. that after her rival was delayed over a health incident. according to the u. s. embassy there. here's our chief john hoodie with more curious in 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 now the u. s. embassy, there released a statement reading quote. earlier this evening, 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, the decision was made to continue with the vice president's trip. you're 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
7:27 pm
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 as well, all is fine and looking forward to meetings and her noise tomorrow. or that is it for me this hour 32 minutes is when i will be back with another full informational
7:28 pm
can is this is our team casual. stay with me, the look forward to talking to you all that technology should work for people. a robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, except where the shorter does that conflict with the 1st law show your identification. we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. the point obviously is to great truck rather than fear i would take on various jobs with artificial intelligence. real, somebody with demon a robot must protect its own existence with exist. i think a trip down memory lane through the history books,
7:29 pm
talk about geo politics as it was a 100 years ago, 150 years ago from some big brain sort of looking at the big map and how that's relevant today. the families that jennifer mark took marking your function. you was like well that's good to know. how do you all done? got, i don't know whether you got that limit and i wanted them to be skilled that you don't know the left me about
7:30 pm
the less about the me and this is them by someone's is sure you can't afford to miss. i'm rachel robbins in washington, coming up g 7 leaders call on emergency needing to discuss the future of the blocks role and dennis dance and how they should approach the roles of russia and china. and the region. plus the federal reserve is gearing up for its annual jackson hall summit. so what can we expect from officials with the theme centered around the uneven economy? then the f. d. a has officially approved pfizer cobra 1900 vaccine. so will we see more mandates across the country and how does this approval differ from the last one? well the.
