11:02 am
and a thirds near the ministry of foreign affairs have been no reports of injuries so far. let's get more from our diplomatic adds to james bass, joins us from cobble. james, these rockets attacks come at a particularly critical time in afghanistan. where do we know what this stage? is it likely to impact the ongoing peace negotiations between the african governments and the taliban. what a senior taliban official is told al jazeera, that the taliban, we're responsible for these rocket attacks, which happened local time around 8 am very dramatic, particularly as it happened right near the center of power. president connie saying afterwards, and you saw those pictures in a speech off to the press with the missiles. they wanted us to leave, but you didn't see any one. leave the prize. i was in the center of the city at the
11:03 am
time. i'm staying in the center of the city of quite a bit of commotion, but actually because of the holiday, it's is cost of the normal because most people are not in the center of the city. they're at home with their families. also worth noting that i've gotten a storm, instituted a new missile defense system for carnival in the last couple of days. that doesn't seem to work with these rockets but suggestion we have. the rockets were flawed from within the city. and that michelle defense system is aimed at stopping missiles coming in to the city from beyond the city limits. and james, in terms of the security situation in afghanistan, we understand that the turkish presidents as also wage in what more can you tell us? and this regard well we had talk so we can go on again and go home until the weekend. they seem to have made some progress. but the key thing they didn't get
11:04 am
was any sort form of ceasefire. and we believe that those talks will come back off the aid possibly for another round. but another key piece of the puzzle is coble air force. that is absolutely vital for all the foreign embassies that are based here for the un, for the international n g o. doing all that humanitarian work throughout afghanistan, that airport is operating and operating normally so that he get people and supplies in and out. and in the extreme situation, they can actually evac off the plan now is for turkey to take over the running of that airport. the taliban, though object to turkeys, troops being based at the airport. this is what president odor one had to say on the matter is diplomacy? notice in the america, 1st of all the united states will take sides with us in terms of diplomacy and diplomatic relations. secondly, in terms of logistics, they will use every means available for they will hand over every logistical
11:05 am
ability they have to turn. and finally, there will be serious financial and administered difficulties during this process. they will give the necessary support to turkey in this respect as well. if these conditions could be math, we're thinking of taking over the management of cabal airport. so those are the conditions that need to be met between the us and the afghan government. but i think the problem, the mail, real stumbling block beyond that is what the taliban are going to do. it again, say about this and we understand the present odor. one once a meeting with the taliban to try and discuss this issue further. ok, james face felt a serious tip sematic as to lie phone couple, james, thank you. i so says it's responsible for a suicide bomb attack. in fact that that has killed at least 31 people. it's the 3rd time this year that southern city has been targeted. iraq's prime minister has held a meeting with his top security officials. my mood de la has,

11:07 am
the arrest of a top ice little commander, ice and had carried out similar attacks in the area this year. observers a concern the country is likely to see similar attacks as we approach the upcoming parliamentary elections, which they say could for men to sectarian conflict, and political rivalries in iraq. drew ahead, algebra bothered chinese diplomat, sorry, denying that beijing is responsible for cyber attacks against western nations. the u. s. u. k and other allies are keys in china of protecting hackers gauging and what they call malicious cyber activity, including a breach of the microsoft exchange email server. earlier this year, they say hacker groups, protected by bay gene, were responsible, compromising tens of thousands of computers worldwide. it's one of a range of cyber threats. china's being blamed for, including ransomware attacks involving millions of dollars. well let's get more

from katrina you. she joins as lie for beijing. katrina high, have chinese leadership being responding to these really storm accusations cyberattacks hi, hello world. china has flat out denied being involved in encouraging or directing or supporting any cyber attacks that have been launched worldwide. a call these accusations groundless and basically just motivated by political agendas. now we've heard now from beijing foreign ministry as well as several chinese embassies and missions based in europe and all of these statements. all of these rebuttals have been basically summarizing 2 main points. the 1st se is saying that basically the evidence around these allegations is incomplete at there are many cyber actors around the world. it's very difficult to trace the actual origins and also countries should be very careful about pointing all of these attacks at one
11:09 am
particular government. the 2nd point that aging is making is basically turning the tables on the u. s. and saying that these allegations are little more than hypocritical thing, that the u. s. itself is the main source of cyber attacks around the world that it's been, it accuses the washington of indiscriminately eaves dropping on other countries. not only competitors to the us, but as well as it's or an allies and aging has said that the c i a has for 11 years been launching its own cyber attacks against chinese institutions, including internet technology companies, ab asian companies, as well as the chinese government that fin the genes response, but what we haven't heard is really a comprehensive response to all of the u. s. allegations. what we didn't hear, for example, was any detailed reply to allegations of hacking of the microsoft email exchange, which affected more than 30000 companies around the world. we also didn't hear any response to the u. s. department of justice. the indictment of for chinese,
