4:02 pm
a major humanitarian and socio economic collapse. it will be given to international organizations working in afghanistan and not the taliban government, which brussels does not recognize. the un has warned, the nation is facing a possible humanitarian crisis, and its economy is on the brink of collapse. meanwhile, that g 20 meeting is coming as delegations from the u. s. u k. and the european union meeting here in cotton with representatives of afghanistan's k, take a government. the afghan acting foreign minister says his administration is entering a new phase in his country's relationship with the rest of the world. a taliban is on a diplomatic push for international support and recognition. let's bring in stephanie deckles, i for a st. cobble. stephanie, it's a dilemma, isn't it? for the international community, on the one hand, they want to prevent a humanitarian crisis in afghanistan. and on the other hand, they want to keep pressure on the town about well, yes,
4:03 pm
it really is there any leverage they have at the moment they will pulled out of this country in terms of the coalition forces. the taliban is now in control of the one leverage the international community has, is this recognition, recognizing the child on as the official government here in afghanistan. so this is what they're using to put pressure on them to. as you mentioned earlier, form an all inclusive government at the moment. the interim government is made up only of talk about members. there are a few minorities, but certainly there are no women. women also women's rights. a major issue talking about allowing particularly girls between the ages of 12 and 18 to return to school and university. that hasn't happened yet. the taliban says they are looking into it . they will do it. but it takes time to sort out the logistics in terms of segregating boys and girls from going to school. so this is a back and forth when it comes to the politics, politically folly. but it's really causing a major impact on the ground. as you've been saying, this countries become 40 dependent on international aid,
4:04 pm
on to international influx is of cash over the last 2 decades of war here that suddenly been withheld. so what you see is a, is a, you know, we'll talk about the economy in free for what does that mean? it means that people cannot feed their families. it means they don't have money, it means, or no jobs. it means that you know, they are selling their household goods. it means that people who work on a daily basis hand to mouth, can no longer feed themselves. that translates to 8 organizations, giving severe warnings about what's happening here. particularly world food program, say only 5 percent done. just imagine that of households are actually eating enough and people have large family. so is incredibly difficult. salaries haven't been paid 40 the security situation is difficult and with an increase of ice. okay, and that's something that the international community in particular, is very worried about. so i think at some point, something is going to have to give. but yes, i mean, this international recognition is the only leverage the international community has . and they're hoping that that's going to put pressure on the taliban to make some kinds of concessions to their demands to then figure out a way forward,
4:05 pm
right at the challenges as you see that people face on a daily basis. i just tremendous and a ton about all the while at desperately seeking some form of legitimacy from the international community. they've been speaking to the u. s. u. a hearing doha. how likely are they to get that recognition that they're looking for? i think it's still going to be a difficult process. i think it's important that there are speaking that there is a dialogue. i think it's very important that you had them sitting down with the americans soon after, you know, almost 2 months now since they've taken charge year and you had that really chaotic withdrawal by american forces. i think it's really a game of brickman ship. i think 40 something is going to have to give whether the taliban appoints women into its interim cabinet. whether it, you know, finally allows girls to go back to school. whether it forms a more of an inclusive government. the taliban will tell you that they were not planning to move this way, but because the former government flagged the former president fled and things
4:06 pm
collapse. this is just the way it is that they don't want to have for interference in their country. that has happened for such a long time. so i think at were at an impasse. and the problem with this is that there isn't really much time if you look at the situation on the ground. this is also a country that suffered one of its worst droughts in 30 years 40. what does that mean? it means that the farmers is a major source of income for many people in the says, don't have money, have a terrible crop that affects you know, food sustainability. so there's a whole knock on effect to this when you look at the ground. so i think a dialogue is important, but something needs to change. and again, when you're just talking about the billions of euro 1000000000 euros pledged, there's also an important thing to ask, which is how does that translate to the grout? how does it get implemented? how does it get transferred here to the 88 hundreds and how was it going to immediately get to people salaries, people's mouths and helping people move forward? i think it's it's, it's a challenge indeed. thank you very much for that. stephanie decker reporting their life from campbell. in other world news in iraq,

scientific advisors was a delay that cost a lot of lives. it was also a delay that was based on a deliberate policy aimed at achieving heard immunity. and it was a policy put forward by those scientific advisers. it cost lives, as i say, it was only abandoned once it was deemed impossible to achieve heard immunity. the report further accuses scientists and ministers of a so called group think that was part of that policy of heard immunity, a group think that lead to a lack of transparency and decision making. a lack of meaningful challenge of decisions that were being made and the inability, or lack of knowledge sharing with international experts. also dealing with this crisis and dealing with it pretty much the same time. it said that despite being one of the 1st countries to come up with a meaningful, good 19 at test, the u. k. squandered that lead and turned it in fact into a situation of permanent crisis when the government gave up mass testing in march
