in utah from mountain theory, these are the top stories us president joe biden. it's called the arrival of the 1st evaluation flight carrying after an important milestone. $221.00 fans, including children, landed in virginia early on friday, 1000 more. who are afraid of taliban retaliation awaiting to be recessive. the 1st person to be tried under aging national security law in hong kong has been sentenced to a total of 9 years in prison tongue in kit with convicted of inciting, profession and terror. and japan's prime minister confirmed the current of our state of emergency will be found 2 or more areas outside of tokyo that he's been reporting record daily increases the view infections for the past few days. it's returned to our top story, the arrival of those afghan interpreters and their families in the united states. we've got michael sample with a professor at queens university, belfast, a former deputy e u. special representative to afghanistan on skype from dublin. today. michael,
4:33 pm
good to see you. as always, we are focused entirely on the united states on the difficulties that have involved in getting visas for the afghans and now moving some of them to the us. but this wasn't just the us war. this was a nato war. so i'm wondering about all those other countries are involved. are they doing anything to help out afghan interpreters in their families? yes, a, a parallel program is being launched in pretty much all the major european countries that are involved and maybe may have been less publicity around it. but hundreds of our funds are being relocated from afghanistan to the u. k. and the european countries which participated in the african war, hundreds, yet there are thousands, tens of thousands of people. could european countries could other nato countries do more. you see, i don't actually find the song was difficult, difficult to talk about because here we're talking about this of the, the,
4:34 pm
the duty of care of the, the countries which participated in the military intervention to those afghans who worked directly for them. they're talking about how to, how to ensure that people who incurred increased risk of being targeted by the taliban are taken carols. but the insecurity which are harnessed on currently faces isn't just impacting on those former employees of the, the western countries. it impacts upon millions of africans. so i think that the, the countries that are grappling with this are trying to balance what they do for our, for honesty as a whole. and what they do for the hundreds of africans who worked with each of those countries incredibly dale, had been and it's, it's, i mean, you're describing a real sort of tight road situation almost here in the us. they have realized that this is the case. and if you know there's been bipartisan deal in the senate to,
4:35 pm
to speed things along. but what also strikes me is that, you know, we knew this was coming. it's not a surprise that the day would arrive, and yet the rush came at the end. what absolutely, and i think there is a difference in the, the us perspective and the, the european perspective. and they, the, the time table in the end was set by u. s. concerns. the incoming administration thought it was a political priority to demonstrate that they had kept a promise to remove us troops. and the, i think a lot of this is the, the establishment. they're expected that they would stay on a bit longer to, to try and tie the up to the security situation. but in the end, the administration said no, our top priority is get the troops out and anything else can be dealt with separately. so it's a u. s. priority,
4:36 pm
we're set the time table is being quite easy for the, for the us to get bipartisan support for example, just now to approve another $5000.00 extra fees as not as far as they're concerned, they're not dealt with. but the reason i say that the, there's a difference you perspective is that only hundreds of off guns will be covered by the, the u. k. and e, you schemes to get people out legally. but i know that tens of thousands, perhaps even hundreds of thousands of off guns today in face of increased insecurity and fears of what the taliban will do in the areas they've already taken over in the areas that they currently threaten. and if they take over the whole country, these hundreds of thousands of off guns are contemplating sleeping irregularly, in other words, across the border into iran, heading towards turkey on potentially to, to europe. non. so europe has a possibility, if things really go wrong and on which they might well of facing flows in terms of
4:37 pm
