12:05 pm
finalize a pair spending bells, he doesn't yet appear to have the full support of his democratic party for his $1.00 trillion dollars spending program, a group for leticia as at one voters on the infrastructure bill without voting on a separate $1.00 trillion dollar bel biden himself made a ran trip to the capital to urge congress to back his spending package. these are not about love versus roy, or moderate versus progressive, or anything else that pitts america's against one. this is about competitiveness versus complacency, competitiveness versus complacency about expanding opportunity not opportunity didn't and i spoke leading the world or letting the world pass is bar despite still dealing with his domestic agenda, joe biden has now arrived in rome to meet wild leaders at the g 20 summit. he's also due to hold talks with pipe francis, very shortly after the today gathering the u. s. president will then head to
12:06 pm
glasgow for a un climate summit. well, that's not bring in our white house correspondent, kimberly how could she's in vatican city today for us? and kimberly, as we know pipe francis has already been making these statements about climate change a ahead of the cop summit. presumably that's going to be discussed as well with president biden there's no question the issue of climate change and how to combat it is important to not just po francis but also to us president joe biden. and that is one of the things they will be talking about, and we expect that the u. s. president should arrive in about an hour's time, roughly his motorcade will be traveling right behind me here. and we expect that this is a meeting that will very much focus on what the u. s. president sees as an existential threat, but also he believes that this a combat climate change is linked to global economic recovery. so this is really going to be a theme that the u. s. president is not only going to discuss with pope francis, but also we expect with the italian president the italian prime minister later on.
12:07 pm
and then of course also with emmanuel macro, the french president a where he will also be repairing a bit of a rift that has occurred between the 2 leaders over a security deal that frances felt really left france out. stop them a slap in the face. so there's going to be a little bit of damage control that the u. s. president will be doing following his meeting with pope francis. well, kimberly, president biden is also a devout catholic, right. so this is also a personal visit for the president very much so well, it will be a formal visit between 2 heads of state. there's no question that there is a personal relationship and this will be deeply personal for us. president biden is only the 2nd president too, is catholic. the 1st was john f. kennedy was very private about his faith. in contrast to joe biden, has been very public. he quote scripture and some of his speeches. and we know that
12:08 pm
he even keeps a photo of poke francis in the oval office if this is a relationship that has been established for many years. we do know that when the son of joe biden bow biden died of cancer a few years ago, that it was pope frances that comforted the biden's in their time of grieving. so as much as this will be a formal meeting with an exchange of gifts and the pleasantries that you'd expect between 2 heads of state. this will also be a meeting of ongoing friendship where they will normally discuss the issues that they need to discuss in terms of share challenges, but also in keeping up with one another. so again, this will be a formal meeting, but it will have very much a personal tone to it as well. our white house correspondent, kimberly how could they following that visit for us in basking city. thank you. kimberly, on how the president of the european commission has told al jazeera, the e. u, is working hard to prioritize ways of easing covered 19 vaccine and accuracy. as

lavonne de lyons spoke to us ahead of that g 20 summit in italy and that un climate conference in pasco cop 26 will be a moment of truth because we all know that we are not on track yet to fight climate change. we are running against the time against the clock, so we need action now in this ticket. the 2nd topic is the question of fairness of the so called climate finance. the developed countries have promised to support with $1100000000000.00 per year. the most vulnerable and least developed countries, and we have to make good on this promise. let's focus on the fairness one because that is key and actually the g. 20 countries are responsible for 80 percent of the global greenhouse gas emissions. and yet questions will also be asked and sacrifices will be asked of middle and low income countries. you mentioned the finance, which is obviously important, but shouldn't go wider than that. shouldn't it? for example, be at the heart of the foreign policy of the you to try to alleviate the stresses
12:10 pm
that many of these countries are feeling. the goal must be on one hand climate adaptation to support developing countries. and that this is very important. and on the other hand, to support that, the developing countries do immediately leap frog into clean, sustainable at best circular economies. and this is the big goal. and for that we need to not only finances, but we also need innovation. and this innovation also has to go to the developing countries. the cop conference, obviously under the shadow of the pandemic, which is still raging numbers of contained in parts of europe around the world. they are not a lot of actions are being pledged. i know that you will be announcing a huge pledge, but you do not been delivered or certainly not delivered fast enough. now there's another proposal that says that actually what we should do is waive the peyton 2 of these factions, giving poor nations the ability to produce their own vaccines. the e. u does not support that proposal, but isn't that the answer to give poor nations the ability to help themselves?
12:11 pm
i'm full of subscribe the goal to give them developing countries, the ability to help themself with lexia. therefore, we propose compulsory licensing because waving the patent doesn't bring you any manufacturing capacities. but compulsory licensing does that. and we have a 2nd initiative. we invest $1000000000.00 together with our african friends to bring m r and the technologies the faces for the covered vaccine to africa, and to build up their manufacturing capacities. let search shift the focus to afghanistan. now now the use planning to reopen its diplomatic mission and f canister, which obviously closed when the taliban took over back in august that also announced, or i believe you will announce the support package of just over one $1000000000.00 to help the african people you've specifically said the african people should not pay for the actions of the taliban. but of course, overall you development aid is still frozen because of the actions all of the taliban. what do you see the role of the you being enough?

garrison right now is the winter's coming. and therefore the european union is leading the initiative to provide humanitarian aid. plus, we call it also, for example, to support teachers or health care workers that they can do their job. because the banking system is basically broken down. so the salaries are not being paid. but i suppose it's the balance of this really helping the african people. but having to deal with the taliban, it's just quite a difficult balance to strike. and i wonder how long it sustainable for they should not be forever. this is for clear. this is for the crisis moment at the right now and we are working on that's very important with neighboring countries, creating a platform because they are effective also to. but the most important right now is that the taliban government has to show that they come up with their deeds following their words. so far we haven't seen that hostile ahead here on al jazeera
