4:05 pm
but they're working on the plans to go move forward and we take all those. oh, those territories from the fall of on that there's been this morning when i was talking to the p close to the bargain. i'm your best. they had a lot of concerns and because they were very dependent on this base, they had a lot of jobs. their day that they got job plays, that has the security concerns. so it's a big a big, a big goal for the i'm going to give the force of how they will take the situation, like washing money in co. thank you very much indeed. ok, let's turn to adam fisher who's life and it's not in washington d. c. this has been described as a necessary part of the deal that's being worked out with the taliban. but as i was talking about, the violence in afghanistan is increasing. some of it is getting closer to couple how is this being talked about in washington d. c. well is of course a hugely important and significant development. i'd be speaking to someone who served enough dentist for a number of years and they said, look, don't be surprised if you hear that us operations in afghanistan has ceased over

4:07 pm
where they're back from airport. the main drive was called disney drive, and that's where many service men and women began the deployment in afghan. it's done and we're almost 2000 ended it with their final john the after being killed in the country. certainly the u. s. is going to keep an eye on the idea of the taliban picking more power. but it's interesting that given all the suicide attacks, all the bombings and by graham, what finally moved the u. s. from there is diplomacy and the bite and white house is banking on that diplomacy. making sure that the afghan forces will be able to protect what they have in afghanistan, that the taliban would sweep pen the way that they have done in the past. and the united states won't have to go back because they hope that this time america's longest war is coming to its final stage. and fisher, washington, d. c. thanks very much indeed. ok, let's take a closer look at the history of bags on the air base. it was built by the former

4:09 pm
agreement in order to allow the advice to continue negotiating with the, with the government. and in fact, based on these various developments and meeting the various promises, including the withdrawal of the american forces from august, has paved the way for the talks. and a couple of days ago, couple of days ago there was a major meeting between the side and my understanding again the meeting on on saturday for us to discuss some of the most important and substantive issues ever since 201314 the role of the american portion have changed fundamentally against them. they have turned into a 4th advice and training courses for the i've gotten the national army. and everybody believes in putting the government side that the army is capable of
