10:21 pm
and that was really driving the question at wednesday's press conference. the secretary of state made this announcement back on may 25th, but it would certainly go a long way towards re establishing of direct us halston ian discussions on a number of issues. namely, trying to get the 2 state solution process back on a firmer footing as well as a reaffirming the u. s. is ongoing support for our, the palestinian economy for educational opportunities for cross cultural exchanges . but the problem is that of the israeli government, led by knopf tolley bennett, the prime minister is steadfastly opposed to a separate consulate being re established. they consider it inimical to israeli security of issues. and that's in there's also of the analysis coming from those who study the israeli palestinian conflict that this could be a threat to while bennett's ugh, coalition government. and so the crowley,
10:22 pm
the question is, how soon is the u. s. actually going to make good on its promise. also, jordan, with the latest on that tut from the state department was thank you. the taliban has worn day, its own members that anyone found to be linked to iceland, afghanistan, known as i. so k will be punished as a traitor. the countries at new government is struggling to contain the threat from the armed group. i. so k is claimed responsibility for several attacks across afghanistan since the taliban takeover in august. if someone is found to be linked to isolate, they will be punished under the shari'a law of treason and spreading terror. their actions will be taken as betrayal against his luck, emirates, of afghanistan. if someone is found in any of our arm units linked to eyesore, let it be known that the unit commander will be interrogated and the unit for the dissolves or the warning kansas. the taliban urges the international community to
10:23 pm
unblock billions of dollars worth of afghan funds, which are currently being held and assets overseas. it's acting foreign minister has met us and european envoys and catherine. as part of a diplomatic push for support and recognition that taliban has warned that blocking access to the central banks. $10000000000.00 risks undermining africa, security and can force a new wave of economic refugees. i've got some remains cut off from much of the world and there is growing concerned that it's humanitarian crisis will accelerate . stephanie decker has been monitoring the talks from the african capital. couple those talk don't mean that they're recognizing the legitimate government and that because of certain amendment, they want the taliban to make when it comes to more inclusive cabinet, particularly the right protecting rights of minorities and women. but the warning they are from the acting foreign minister saying that there could be an increase again in migration,

10:25 pm
what could be an issue of infiltration. so i think security issues moving forward and again, even the telephone hasn't been paid their salary. the people will tell you that over time, that could also be an issue when it comes to defections. towards isolate the use of top breaks, it official has proposed the removal of many of the customs checks between britain and northern ireland. as a trade dispute intensifies on tuesday, the u. k, it breaks, administer talked of tearing up the protocol that's created. trade checks between great britain and northern ireland. the u. k says it will engage fully and constructively with the e. u, but wants to see significant change. and simmons has worn out from belfast. the british government isn't happy, nor are the main powers here in northern islands assembly. but the european union executive has gone all the way it can, it would seem to try and smooth out this seaboard a crisis. this was the message from brussels b,
