afghanistan down from a peak of more than 100000 in 2011 in 2001 attacks by al qaeda led to the us invasion of afghanistan which is america's longest war. the president has been consistent in his view that there is not a military solution to afghanistan that we have been there for far too long that has been his field for some time well documented well reported on he believes that and he remains committed to supporting negotiations between the parties which many of you may be following are resuming next week and he also believes we need to focus our resources on fighting the threats we face today 20 years almost 20 years after the war began. there's a known resident senior fellow how the atlantic council and they form afghan diplomat he says the u.s. needs to maintain the taliban support in order to keep the deal alive the americans

5:05 am
afghanistan with equal rights for women and the u.n. committed to those 3 weeks we are committed to the people of afghanistan we are committed to ensuring that the gains that have been made or not lost and that is especially true for women in afghanistan. they'll be urgent diplomatic efforts now to try and get the taliban to change their mind pakistan will be key is the country which has the most leverage over the taliban in kabul many will be worried and it's worth recalling a letter that the u.s. secretary of state antony blinken wrote to president garvey at the beginning of last month it was later leaks he said after american military withdrawal i'm concerned that the security situation will worsen and that the taliban could make rapid territorial gains the curfew is due to begin in less than an hour has a protest as again rally against the killing of an unarmed black man in the u.s. state of minnesota it's just after 9 o'clock in the evening there now alan fisher

5:07 am
rather. than i think the authorities the photographs of nation of the police chief and of course the police stop till you find the city still killing you don't you write me a lot of the emotional temperature as you can see that simply has not happened people here have been saying that is truly time for structural change in the united states this isn't about one incident it's not about one man anymore it's about the way policing is carried out here in the united states and many people we've been speaking to over the last couple of hours have said that the cargo coming in and the protests like this every year because of you know another incident of another black man being killed by the police and they say this is the time between the police have been saying i want everyone to move when they say they want people to move to get away from here you can think you're going safe as long as they possibly
5:08 am
can. as you can see the people here are getting very tense very excited very excitable as well but there's been a family where there was a very long. march around the streets here that was. good humored is perhaps the wrong word but it's very reverential very peaceful people expressing their concern that what happened on sunday what they. are going to write they were hoping that there may be some hope for change but when you see the police acting like this it was largely peaceful and then the police decided that it was and i'm walking the assembly and that was the point where things started to get more difficult we moved on we need to see the police start moving people away there were perhaps 5600 people at the earlier protest number don't have 400 it is affectionately called night here in brooklyn center. but that hasn't stopped people
5:09 am
coming in the numbers because sharon and see this has got to stop and it seems that many here believe this is where they need to draw the line because i see the time case like this. to put it back you can hear that in our work. largely in this guy and not only. do you think. it would be ok i mean the point to having you know direction night that we're doing right here and someone is obviously with you know taking the time to get farai. but i. i. just another. c from large numbers of people not. having having family. with the police at one point getting a letter from our corner well i am having the courage to not more than i. am.

5:13 am
