10:02 am
a we do know some of the names. look sammy, this meeting is notable as any 1st time meeting would have been between american officials and the transitional taliban government. but as evidence that expectations should be tempered regarding a breakthrough, because at this juncture, it appears there still quite a chasm between what the us wants and what the transitional government in afghanistan wants. the united states is simply framing this meeting as quote, a continuation of pragmatic engagements. it's had with the taliban on matters of vital national interest. american interests. i should note the taliban is describing its delegation as high level. as you mentioned, it is being led by the acting foreign minister. on the united states side, there will be diplomats from the state department. there will be members of
10:03 am
u. s. a. i d. and members of the intelligence community, notably absent is zell, my calozaro, he has been america's point person in talks with the taliban for years. all right, we're going to leave it down fortunately. natasha. let's go over now. stephanie deca and some of the, the issues that they're discussing on assume security, economic assistance inclusiveness. and i mean those terms have very real meanings for life in afghanistan right now. right? absolutely. i think it's safe to say sammy, that you have a population of almost 40000000 people being held hostage if you will, are due to politics, is the country that's become incredibly dependent on international money being injected into it to sustain itself, its economy. and this is what you're seeing, unraveling. now you have people who have not been paid in months, their salaries. you have people who live, you know, hand to mouth,
10:04 am
day laborers who god, who depend on that money to survive and feed their families. that is not happening . you see people in the market selling small goods, household items, whatever money they can make to survive. you have good many people telling you that even though you know they might be not happy with the taliban, they want to leave because of the dire economic situation. and just to put this into context, i me, last year i covered when europe's biggest refugee camp moria, in greece. burnt down. the main population of refugees, there were afghan refugees. this was last year. they were fleeing, of course, the security situation, the economy situation with the economic situation compared to then has become far more difficult, far more catastrophic. so if you listen to the aid agencies warning about the fact that it's only weeks until you're going to have a major issue of health care of malnutrition, world food program morning that only about 5 percent of households can feed their families. this is very real and this is all contingent on that money coming to the
10:05 am
ground. and this is of course, something being discussed. but as we know, they're very difficult political expectations. and as we've heard from the americans and also other international countries, which will be meeting with the taliban, that they have demands. and they're using that as leverage to recognize the government and then release the money. the taliban is saying that they don't want to have any sort of unilateral demands made on it. so again, stand off that's having major, desperate implications on the people here on that was stephanie decker from cobble . they're now the official number of lives lost to cove. 19 in brazil is past 600000. it's death toll is 2nd only to the united states. parliamentary inquiries concluding its 6 month investigation into the brazilian government's handling of the pandemic is lifted the lid on logic corruption linked to vaccines. monica anarchy of reports. it took hours to set the scene on the screen friday morning. despite the rain volunteers spread clotheslines on the sands of rhodesia,

10:21 am
a sovereign and democratic state. it is inconsistent with article 2, article 8, an article, 90 paragraph. one of the polish constitution was politi boesky. a case requested by the prime minister mateus might have yet ski on whether you institutions could stop poland from reorganizing its judiciary outside the court. deep unhappiness from pro european union demonstrators that version you will have to start learning the russian language because poland does not fit in with europe any more met adam found out that we will manage. we survived the soviet occupation. it's not easy, but we will survive this. the european commissions reaction came swiftly with a message. the e u does not function as a pick and choose system. we are very firm on the different principles and we will use all the tools of all disposal to be sure it's possible to protect such a kind of for principles because it's at the core of the union. and if the position
10:22 am
of the citizens is a protection of the internal market to support election of all the different actors in the union, relations between warsaw and brussels have been strained by poland. judicial reforms that began with the law and justice party took power in 2015. opponents say that the reforms amount to a government takeover of the justice system. it also drew condemnation. you court of justice and let the commission blocking poland access to the you. pandemic recovery fund. government has said that this is about poland, sovereignty its opponents say it could push poland out of the you all together. and given the overwhelming support for the e, with in poland, that would back fire on the law and justice party, which has already seen its support. we can, i think it's handling of the pandemic, a political defeat from which it might never recover. sunny diego al jazeera tag giant google is welcoming a deal agreed by a $136.00 countries to impose
10:23 am
a minimum tax rate of 15 percent on multinational companies. it saying that discouraging business giants from declaring profits and low tax territories even though their clients might be elsewhere. but the agreement is already being criticized in developing nations. want the tax rate to be higher. ireland, hungary and estonia were among the last to join the agreement. the u. s. appeals court is allowing the state of taxes to resume a band on most abortions. the legislation passed last month is regarded as the most restrictive in the country. it's been challenged by the biden administration and could end up in the supreme court. kenya has launched a new conservation drive, offering people the chance to name an elephant for round $5000.00. the country needs the money to keep its initiatives going that strengthening its fight against
10:24 am
ivory poachers. catherine sawyer reports from under sally national park in southern kenya. this is one of the most photographed landscapes in kenya, elephants and other wildlife roam freely attracting thousands of tourists every year and was selling national park is also the heart of conservation works that have seen poaching in canyon nearly eliminated. we have a very good relationship with canal left service for whenever there is an artist, whether it's by the community renters, they work very closely with the, with the kent police, the work root canal i've service to ensure that the porters are really received to whatever penalties they're supposed to in the last 4 years, the elephant population in kenya has grown by 2000 to about 36000. so this is the closest we've actually come to one of the larger hearts here in i'm with alien, it's really quite breathtaking. the ranges here tell us that the incidents of poaching
10:25 am
have gone down significantly over the last few years, but there are other emerging threats. climate change resulting to frickin, drought loss of habitat. and we have humans settlements around the parks. this is causing quite a concern and they say, these are the silent killers, a cross, ample sally, and into several east national park. they call this the elephant graveyard of a 4000 joules of elephants are kept here. but this elephants warren killed by poachers. there remains a here to serve as a reminder of what droughts can do. the climate to discuss this wildlife research says rivers are drying up. humans settlements are taking over migratory corridors and elephant are becoming increasingly isolated to the main thread. now is the issue of climate change? i think that's the main thing that i can talk about. kazer is the one which is now shrinking the habit of who might have the elephant numbers increasing. but if you
10:26 am
don't have the proper habitat for them, but is the main challenge of the moment. the poachers bullet and poisoned arrow may largely be things of the past, but this iconic creatures still find themselves in danger of extinction. as go live now to catherine soil. so catherine, understand there is actually a naming ceremony going on right now. take us through what's happening. yes, there is a naming ceremony. it's a fast time it's being held in kenya, it's going to be an annual event and it's very significant because it's going to help a raise money of for conservation. we spoke to the cabinet secretary off tourism nadine bella, who said that in the last 2 or so years because of the corona virus, we have seen a less tourists come into the country. so that means less money for conservation efforts. so this is very significant. so what's going to happen for $5000.00?
10:27 am
some even you can get to name an elephant with different categories of this. you can a name, a newborn call, for example, a loan bull or even, you know, a bachelor's in a heart. and then there is a great task as a who's have b, a heavy talks get almost to the brand. so that can be named as, while we have write about safety task as left in the country. so a lot of officials here are saying that this is very important and hopefully going forward that are going to raise more money for conservation efforts. i'm catherine . how will the money actually help me through some of the challenges which are report highlighted there when it comes to climate change in human settlements and so on? yes, we have been speaking to santa scientists who have been doing research on,
10:28 am
you know, animals like elephants and they are very concerned about the effects of climate change. they're talking about habitats of, you know, big animals like elephants are decreasing. they're talking about a settlement. so this i learned is owned by the messiah community, and normally they have conservancy where they allow for migratory routes for elephants. but a lately we have seen a more and more subdivisions of this land, and this is causing quite a concern. so this man is going to help us to as empower in communities a to in a work together with government officials and also to understand the importance of conservation. the importance of the leaving space is open for some of this animal. so the scientists say that because of frequent drought, we're seeing and not just loss of habitat, but also are reducing of, you know, resources like grazing lands and or water of for these animals which is very
10:29 am
important. so the idea is to manipulate or the ecosystem to track water, to some of the rivers that are drying up and all this requires a lot of money. that's why i, the government say that it needs this, you know, other sources for revenue, other sources for money to help keep these animals alive. all right, thanks so much. katherine sawyer. yes, president joe biden is reversed a trump era policy and restored the status of to monuments and a marine conservation area. the monuments are in the state of utah, while the known as bears is, is sacred to native americans. the other became famous in the year 2000 austria 75000000 year old dinosaur fossil was discovered there from had reduced their size for our commercial activity. a volcano on the spanish island of lapel mize, continuing to spew love after it began erupting nearly 3 weeks. ago,
