3:02 am
un headquarters, e. c o, p in protest, is gathered. they didn't want this meeting to take place to demonstrate that point . unlike egypt and sudan, ethiopia didn't send its foreign minister to this meeting. instead, it was represented by its water and irrigation minister. of the con, union is seized of the matter and is abilene facilitating our negotiation. that is why it's easy to get a pebble or she steadily countries of the 2 brings a matter to the security council. it was to dawn and egypt that had demanded this meeting, saying the fact that the peer is again filling the dam amounts to a threat to international peace and security. does not an overstatement to affirm that for egypt the girl is an existing show threat. this is a situation that egypt cannot and will not tolerate. later,
3:03 am
i press the foreign minister on what action his country was prepared to take. so all their circumstances where you would consider military action. the matter of egypt, the protection of the rights of it citizen, is inherent and is a matter that necessarily any responsible government would apply itself to clearly growing tension between 3 countries. 2 of them with a population of more than 100000000 people and another with a population of 40000000 is very concerning. but the security council is unlikely to take any direct action. diplomats tell me they hope this meeting will force the 3 countries back into african union, lead mediation, james bay's ouch is era that the united nations work on that. john began 10 years ago now and it's been the subject of an international diplomatic stand off ever since. but 145 nice of them on the now rivers, main tributary,

3:05 am
a deal or an agreement at all. they want that ability sort of impose there will be and if you want technical discussions wants agreement. one things the other change from month to month and i'd like to add there's the great disingenuousness about the condition proposal because everybody knows you can only fill in july and august . and the technicians are saying, well, how about a pause for 6 months to negotiate? when we've had negotiations for year? what that basically says is you can't touch that damn per year, that you can't continue instruction to delay construction for a year. so it's a bit of a bad faith proposed by the technician. there's bad faith rhetoric on all sides. and what really needs to happen is a positive negotiation. now the un, a framework was failing. so we probably need another mechanism. there's a deal to be made here, but right now the negotiations aren't moving forward and we need to find a way to get the moving forward in a positive manner. and it seems like the a, you just doesn't have the chops to do that. with each drop of water that goes into

they say 28 attackers identified 26 colombians to haitian they're. the haitian officials are not confirming the 2 of those or in fact cation, haitian american americans of haitian descent. but those are the latest numbers that we're getting from haiti as the investigation continued. very interesting developments that had he call handle the nations from washington d. c. thank you, patty. while you, as president joe biden has defended his decision to pull american troops out of afghanistan, saying that the military operation will end on august 30. first. he insists the u. s. has achieved its objectives after nearly 20 years of war. but this withdrawal comes as the taliban continues to seize more territory in afghanistan. white house correspondent, kimberly how good before one week after us forces withdrew quietly from bog room air force base. the taliban is making games from the security vacuum left behind us
