1:01 pm
this are one of the worst public health failures. a critical report by british i'm bees into boys. johnson's early handling of the covey. 19 pandemic, m. and as fell abrasion of mexico indigenous heritage and a reminder of the injustice. the community says it's spelled suffers. i'm trying to get your, let's go with the sports germany become the 1st seems a claim to sports at the world cup. joining a host cutter in the 2022 finals. ah, thank you very much for joining us. leaders of the world's 20 biggest economies that are bought to hold an urgent meeting to address the growing humanitarian and security crisis in afghanistan. the u. n. chief has won the afghan economy is near collapse and is appealing for cash assistance from the g. 20
1:02 pm
a. u. s and other countries froze. afghanistan sat that a taliban took power and diplomatic editor james vase begins that coverage with this report. from the imaginations. the u. n. has been spearheading a large humanitarian operation in the 2 months since the taliban took over afghanistan. 3.8000000 people have received food supplies in that period. but aid alone will not help as the countries in tar economy is now at the risk of collapse . the un secretary general antonio terrace says the situation is very urgent. disease that make or break moments if you do not ex, until afghans whether the storm and do it soon. not only day, but although old will pay a heavy price. the telephone's acting, foreign minister, says afghanistan's funds thought to total about $10000000000.00 should be immediately unfrozen, or cat america, and the hanover, the, the shadow, hover. this is so embarrassing that a huge country,
1:03 pm
like the united states of america, is freezing in our assets. instead of helping constructing our country and ensuring order, diplomats tell me there's no way the u. s. and it's western allies will agree to unfreeze afghanistan's assets and hand that money directly to the taliban. but the un believes there's another solution to inject money into afghanistan's economy, and that's using trust funds set up, for example, by the u. n. development program or the world bank. those funds can then be used to pay for vital supplies and sellers. already one such scheme is up and running, allowing a fund of $15000000.00 to be accessed by hospitals and health care workers. james bayes. alger 0 at the united nations live now to al jazeera stephanie decker, who is in capital for his stephanie, the un secretary general, painting of any bleak picture of the humanitarian and economic crisis at afghan. his son is facing, i know you've been speaking to afghans. what do they tell you about the challenges
1:04 pm
they have to to face on a daily basis? well the bottom line is there really isn't any money fully. there are no jobs. and it was already a pretty desperate situation economically before the taliban took over the country . and it's become so much worse at the fact that there's no working 80 ends in the capital. for example, you could only really get hold of cash in kabul in just a handful of other major cities in the countries or people need to travel. and even if you do have cash in the bank and this is not everyone, this is a minority, let's say you're only allowed to access around $200.00 a week. you have to choose for that and not necessary to get that in a day. other people who'd, you know, depend on daily work, so hand to mouth that also that not happening. so people setting off the household goods, world food program, for example, saying that only 5 percent of homes across the entire country are getting enough food. so it's desperate. they're no jobs. people also worried about the security situation recently. folly with an increase in attacks for myself. okay. i was
1:05 pm
talking to someone today and they basically said that, um, you know, we're not sure if the taliban can get a handle on them. and, you know, even though people one to leave the country because they're terrified many of them uh, the tangible many also want to leave because of the dire economic situation because there are no jobs, there are no opportunities, there is no money. so i think what you're seeing is a personal standoff between the taliban and the international community, withholding billions of dollars of funds and as having a direct negative catastrophic impact on the people here on the economy on the health care system. you know, salaries haven't been paid the medical a medical supplies aren't getting in, you know, it's incredibly difficult and i think i don't you dash was right when he said it's a make or break situation. that money needs to be injected into the economy here. because really, over the last 2 decades at this country has become incredibly dependent on that money on international donor money. and the fact that they've now suddenly withheld
1:06 pm
it is having a real, a devastating impact. stephanie, thank you very much for that. stephanie deca reporting their life from capital in other world news, preliminary election results in iraq coin to a strong outcome for the party of shia cleric, more tatt outsider. ah, but none of the political blocks appear to secured a majority. former prime minister noreah molecule looks set top the 2nd largest hold among sheer potties sunday's ball was held several months early, but voter turnout hit a record, no of jests above 40 percent. well, we have to correspondence covering the story in iraq for is mahmud abdullah had is in this southern city of nasiriyah where protest i expected in the coming hours. i traced me go to alley, hush him who is in bagdad ali, tell us about the reactions are to these early resolves and how this could change the balance of power in iraq. that's fully with the looked at
1:07 pm
a sub the roof. securing around 73 seats and to parliament a, an invalid key out on 57 other she r factions you're in baghdad denounced the election actually they lost and they weren't able to secure the number of seats. they hadn't been bust olandt. so they denounced the election as fraud and they wrote to defend the photos of votes under candidates rights. so this is going somewhere maybe towards escalation, both my beer political escalation, what are these groups are trying to secure a kind of a leverage to harvest, say in the future government, because with walk up a father having a $73.00 seats in the parliament and allowing himself all fortune going alliance with maybe the sudanese and the kurtz, he'll be able alone to be the maybe the king maker among the she hasn't. this is
1:08 pm
what the other part is not one treated to see ali. thank you for that. ali hash and in baghdad. let's cross over to my mood. abdougla had now was in the southern iraqi city of nasiriyah mahmoud. some people, as we saw they are celebrating in baghdad. but it's not the case in nasiriyah where you will fully a worry. i've been hearing from people here and nasty as it remember. first, nancy is the stronghold over the rocky revolution. that is called the sri, that house it former prime minister, added up the mattie. and that, that cold for this. a put preliminary order for this early election in 1st place, but as you know, that recently many people from the 3 or many people, many young people have been cutting this election because they do not want to give their votes for the same old purchase. but here in australia, on the other hand,
1:09 pm
many people are now some somehow happy because the opposition their position candidates are have one relative or have achieved relative the victory with 5 seats in the car province. does the big, you know, now 3 is the capital city of the car province. while they're said rest movement achieved 8 seats. 19 candidates for the car prevents 5 of them for the to screen candidates. those who represent the revolution in the car, 8 seats for the sub list movements for seats, for the coalition of a state of load that is led by former pain, mr. murray, l. mckee, one seat for independent candidate and another for worship horn party. so the whole atmosphere in australia is some kind over there is some kind of contradiction because some people are happy because the they have given the votes
1:10 pm
to the independent candid, those who represent the out of lucian. namely those were absent. the empty dead part of that's called resolve, which has been formed by revolutionaries, led by a, one of the revolutionaries in australia. on the other hand, it's kind of a punishment. many people here have expressed birger opinion. they say that at what happened in this election in australia, especially honestly as some kind of punishment to the say to the all the parties they have given their votes to the voluntary candidates. so that the old party candidates cannot, again, the people's votes in nashville. so it's kind of punishment to the old party and supports to the revolutionary candidates. thank you. thank you for that ma'am. would have done what had lie for a say in nasiriyah. ali al nash me is a professor of international relations at most chancery a university. he says this election won't change anything in iraq. i think nothing
1:11 pm
will happen because the same allies, the same. the leaders the same list, the sim. so the schedule and the same a blend of the same goal. then i think nothing will have been on the ground in order that i think you're old, the dreams, all the hopes are the demand of that i q people. it's going with the wind because that many people expect to be some think will change in this election, but i think nothing will change may be just us some a few change. but i think the majority are think that the majority is still in the hand off on sunday. and the same of that, and he's behind the brian minister. and i think, or even if in the, the minute the major bullets are still still in their position and next to i think in on last many, many power been influenced by iraq because of, from the 203 years. because now because unsaturated. he's now he is, he blay,
1:12 pm
