1:03 pm
he's the political chief. he came to afghanistan earlier this week from door, how he came to can to ha, when to send. he's now in college with a high level delegation as these consultations continue. we also know that enough to connie has also been talking with the former government leaders. like how many cars i for were president search for the ceo of dealer villa this week as they were to what they say will be inclusive government. although taliban made i actually just interviewed a man named ha bulky, who's in the taliban coastal commission? press conference this week. if you remember, he was the english speaker for the taliban in the room. and i asked him about these ongoing consultations. he said that we are very focused on having an inclusive government. it's not clear who will be in the government and who will not be in the government. he said, we don't have a timeframe is nor for the deadline that we have to meet. and we also still haven't decided on the structure at the moment. i also asked him about whether the capital
1:04 pm
would remain in cobble. and he said that that is also part of the consultations as to whether it will be in cobble or kandahar because of course can to high is the birthplace of the telephone and showing all the sites and what happens with the kinds of her and carpool situation. like on the streets because we have seen lots of distressing pictures that has come dying. but the still sporadic reports of gunfire. isn't there what's going on where you are? it's a tailor to the airport remains the flash point in the city. there was an incident this morning when i saw a video with people with the la deed, with unclear whether they were heard and gunfire, or stan paid. but it's still a very dangerous place to be to get to the airport incident. this morning happened at the gate where americans, i mean, to be entering through and also people interpret is also so we understand, but that gate was closed and people are being told to go to other. but it's still a very, very tense situation. i also folky the taliban person from the cultural commission
1:05 pm
about the course and how it's working with the americans and the soup. we're in constant communication and we are working together on the security situation because we're in charge of the security on the exterior vehicles and they are in charge of the security on the interior of the airport. so we have to work together to make sure that the right people are getting through to these evacuation. so quite interesting that the taliban and the us have gone from being enemies to 20 years, to having to collaborate on security at this point that he think he said it's up, it's interests, the americans leave on her and safely and quickly. so we're happy to collaborate in this manner here. also say when i awesome about the thousands of people flooding to the airport, still every day they, they are the one paying the roads around the airport. some people with valid visas, others just giving it a shot. and he said, we wish they didn't, he said with, with issued amnesty for everybody. and he said from the security forces,
1:06 pm
from the very top to the very junior levels, we want them to stay. we're giving them amnesty and, and he said, i hope that i can offer some type of reassurance to people that they don't have to flee. although the trust is hard to come by here. it's been 20 years of war and the people in cobble. this is the 1st time they seeing the taliban. they have negative memories. a lot of people have negative memories from the 90s in the last 20 years and it's hard for them to trust the movement. now that they are in town. okay, charlotte bellis? i bring us the very latest from capital charlotte, thank you. with evacuation efforts in k off campbell's airport, the u. s. president has warns the presence of american troops will be no guarantee of safe passage to by the says he has forces of air lifted around, 13000 people in the past week. my counter reports from washington. the on the grim scenes round couple airport us is continuing to ran puppets efforts
1:07 pm
to evacuated citizens. it's also send more state department officials to kuwait and cutter to process special immigrant fees as president biden has reiterated his commitment to st. b. effectuate every american citizen who wants to leave along with thousands of guns who worked with the us. he's also described the last week as heartbreaking, and warns the mission remains dangerous. make no mistake. this evacuation mission is dangerous and evolve risks to armed forces and has been conducted under difficult circumstances. i cannot promise what the final outcome will be, what it will be that it will be without risk of loss. but as commander in chief, i can assure you that i will mobilize every resource necessary. it didn't take long for the politics of the african crisis to come into play. republican representative
1:08 pm
mike grudges issued a statement accusing vide enough. once again, ignoring reality on a gun is done, he continues. there are thousands of americans and taliban controlled territories around the country. and the biden harris administration cannot provide an accurate accounting of how many americans are left. a pentagon spokesman confirmed that some un troops was still on their way to help secure coupled airport. the total number is slightly right to more than $6000.00. the main focus is on security at the airport and making sure that as the general said, that that air oper should resume and continue as unimpeded as possible. but clearly we will be prepared and postured if, if we had to do something additional. but i won't speculate right now, but still no indication as to hall free passage will be guaranteed. well, those were not able to get through the taliban cordon around the airport. president
1:09 pm
biden has cancelled a plan trip to his home in wilmington and his staying on that the white house through the weekend to continue to monitor the situation. thank you very, very much. and also perhaps to prepare members of his administration for the grilling they are likely to face when congress reconvenes to be brief. next week, mike jazeera washington, let's explore the sound go a little further. now we're joined by scott lucas, the emphasis professor at university of birmingham, and he's joining us from that by skype. great. so have you with us on the news or let's talk about the politics of this. do you think you'll binds his rights in his calculation that americans just looking at those in the usa, they aren't going to be troubled by afghan, asked on, as long as all those americans are a list. because that does seem to be the pragmatic political approach that he's
1:10 pm
taking. i can't tell you if joe biden is right or wrong. what i can do is, as an analyst tell you that joe, by noon is advisors when the age plan this withdrawal and to withdraw quickly from afghanistan this summer. they price $10.00, that there would be a short term shock. they had the intelligence reports that the taliban were going to take over, were likely to take over. i'll be at possibly not as quickly as turned out to be. but they thought that by labor day, this mark or 1st monday in september, in the united states, that attentions would have turned elsewhere for americans back to the economy. to the corona virus pandemic, to the infrastructure plan. the administration had just pushed through to social policies and their $3500000.00 budget. in other words, the new cycle would have moved on. i can say specifically in the last few days that
1:11 pm
they are specifically trying to push the line of taking victory away from defeat in afghanistan. almost a dunkirk moment, if you will, for america in getting americans out of couple and the rest of the country and possibly some napkins as well, whether they're right or wrong remains to be seen. but why? i think what is clear here as this is an america 1st policy and afghans are expendable in the calculations of this administration right now. ok? because it's interesting that it does appear to be america. first, it does appear to be a continuation very much of the trump doctrine. there you talk of the short term show. what are the reverberations likely to be if you'd be from domestically to internationally, you're joining us from the u. k. what kind of effects is this policy decision, the short term short having with america's allies? well, i mean, this is an effect. the 3rd be to american credibility,
1:12 pm
with the idea that america leads and the rest of the world follows. we saw it after the iraq war in 2003 in the disastrous approach. the americans took there. we saw that their failure to protect civilians in 2011 and beyond. in the middle east. and now we see it here. europe and allies are not going to leave nato, they will continue to work with their americans. but the idea that they follow was drug by and put it in january americans back to leave the world that's been damaged . but i think more specifically it's the region. it's, it's the area around us can assume the united states has left the building and handed the keys to the taliban in afghanistan. but now pakistan takes on a key role because they are late with the taliban. have been for years behind pakistan is china. huge investments with pakistan and now app canister, because part possibly, if it is stable or trying to built and wrote initiative, iran will have interest in western afghanistan. the gulf states will have interest
1:13 pm
there in america, moves from the center to being a bystander, as all these various countries make their own calculations regarding the future of f canister in their own national interest. so in terms of america is western allies and thinking of this off courted special relationship between the us and the you came in damaged this error. nate, so clearly very concerns. what impact is the change in americans are going to have for those countries in those organizations, often county don't. america as being the guarantor of security. the global police will this compel, comes by organizations like nato, to, to start working with the americans and future. or are they going to also not going to happen? i don't, that's going to happen. i mean, there are still mutual interests between european countries, canada,
1:14 pm
the united states, for example, is joe biden, highlighted the geneva summit in dealing with the various sorts of russia or russia, which of course has been very active in areas like ukraine. and indeed, an area is like the middle east to and trying to undermine western governments through cyber warfare and election interference. that remains. but i think we come almost full circle from 20 years ago when nato went out of theater. by getting involved in afghanistan, i think it is now highly unlikely the us european alliance will now operate outside of europe in the same way. i don't think if the americans ask for europe to follow, say in the middle east, in central asia, or even against china, that they can necessarily count on getting a yes back from close allies with france and germany and from united kingdom it's dealing with its own shock or bribes and it's very much isolated in the world right now. ok, scotland gates, get your insights that thank you so much for joining us. only use our we appreciate it. thank you. and american air base in germany is being used as
1:15 pm
a transit points for afghan, a vacuum. he's hundreds to the rise at the ranch, dean air base from carter. it can hire is up to 5000 people and move the lights on respect suits. in the coming days, germany has been sending its own planes to evacuate citizen stock in afghanistan. columbia is one of more than a dozen countries have agreed to host afghan asylum seekers. presidents either to k, says afghans awaiting the settlements in the us will be alliance in one group, whereby is columbia, is also joining the group of allied countries that will also support to the united states. for those of con nations who have some of the united states for years, and who are in the process of registering and migrating to that country so that they can stay in columbia temporarily. united states will not only cover or detention costs for these people, but will also speed up all the processes. plenty more has all the news, including china's lead moment. high paging says it's clamping on sexual assaults,
1:16 pm
inappropriate behavior in the workplace, and it's spectacular fear. but even his jump in shipping it's, it's enough to patch some leave. her family will have all the action for you is ah, government is facing growing criticism as it struggles to get a victims of the powerful earthquake has killed more than 2000 people that were desperate scenes in the hard hit city of the k. as people scrambled for supplies, a week on and many in rural areas is still waiting for help on serious john home and spoke to the jones about the crisis in the capital for the prince. patient prime minister on re riding of his 1st press conference in earthquake rit through the country, south west leaving more than 130000 families homeless. we have
