1:00 am
with the u. s. we listened, copies 19, is not all 4 covered, 19 has been terrible demonstration of the failure of human solely that we meet with global news makers and talk about the stories that matter on al jazeera. ah, the future of the pan, it's hanging in the balance as the clock counts down on the cop $26.00 climate summit. there be an agreement you of that climate catastrophe. ah. oh i. marian was in london, you're watching al jazeera, also coming up on the program, forging a new relationship with the taliban, us. as kat, i will represent washington's interests in kabul. the struggle to survive on europe's doorstep. agency say they must be given access to the orders own between
1:01 am
bella, ruth and poland. and as another military figure joined sedans, new ruling counsel, international pressure grows for a return to civilian rule. ah, welcome to the program. all talks are continue in glasgow on saturday. a day after the cop $26.00 was due to finish negotiators from $200.00 nations, a considering a draft agreement which is working towards one clear goal to limit a global warming to one and a half degrees. and it's feared current pledges to cut emissions would see global warming move well beyond that and actually hit $2.00 degrees. the latest draft agreement asked countries to hasten their emission cutting pants from 2030 to the end of next year. the language is weak and it's framed as a request. it says by 2025 rich countries should double their funding to help poor
1:02 am
countries cope with the impact of climate change. a previous draft didn't set a target date. 2023 as the new deadline for which countries give poor nations a $100000000000.00 a year in climate financing. the previous deadline had been 2020, and the draft. dhl express deep regret for missing the target. and for the 1st time, fossil fuels are targeted as well, with the draft telling countries to move more quickly in phasing out coal power and fossil fuel subsidies. but again, no date was set for that. this is our collective moment in history. this is all chance to forge a cleaner, healthier, more prosperous world. and this is all time to deliver on the high ambition set by our leaders. at the start of this summit,
1:03 am
we must rise to the occasion. we will continue to champion $1.00, which is our foolish ins northstar. hospital subsidies must end. we must double adaptation finance from current level boston damage to central class to settle for workshop. we must strengthen action on law from damage. and we need an article 6 resolution that results in real reduction, 0 sum offsetting era mustang. with a minimum, we need to walk away. you can minimize the challenge now is for those of us who are progressive, believe along, we need to hold the lines. oh, fuck children, grandchildren, this is critical now. our environment and as a nic clark joins us now from glasgow. of course, why the summit is taking place and as actually miss it's deadline,
1:04 am
it's now gone into extra time. tell us about the, the stumbling blocks and what negotiate is focusing on well, every cop you go to mrs. its deadline, they usually go on another 24 hours if not 36 hours and that's what's likely to happen here. but in fact, in the last hour we've heard from the u. k. presidency, who says that he and his team are engaged, intensive consultations with all the different negotiating blocks to try and get some resolution on what the next draft tax will be. that will be the 3rd iteration of the text, and that will be available at 8 o'clock to morrow. and then there will be a plenary when all the countries come together briefly to discuss elements of that text and then late. and then we'll go away and discussing further and meet changes and so forth. and then later in the afternoon, alex sharma, the u. k. president of this cult said that there would be a full part plenary, hopefully to gavel through a final gloves. go pat, if you will, that remains to be seen if that happens. it's always incredibly complex. had of
1:05 am
negotiations. you'll, you'll see situations where delegations are calling their capitals to get permission to take these negotiations on, on these key issues such as cold and so forth. and phasing out coal, one of the big things, phasing out fossil fuel subsidies. another one quite something for that to actually be in the text at all. it was in the 1st iteration. it was watered down to the 2nd one. will it survive the night? will it be in that text to morrow morning? we'll have to see emissions. another big issue here am trying to get countries to up their commitments. not in 2025, but next year in 2022. and also the issue of climate finance all problem. and that's going to be a big problem, especially on lawson damage, and that's a red line for the g $77.00 group of developing nations. so we'll see how that pans out. let's discuss all this with august. the 2nd is a climate lawyer, said tessa at this point, what is an acceptable outcome in glasgow? i think in short,
1:06 am
an acceptable outcome would have to address those to sort of themes that you've related. so which are ambitious ambition rather, and fairness. so on the ambition side that's of as in, sorry, countries have sufficiently ambitious emissions reductions targets and plans and policies actually implement those targets. and also that, that includes addressing the elephant in the room. fossil fuels, which are of course, what drives 80 percent or more of the carbon emissions. and then on the other side is this question of fairness, which is really reflected in the way in which developing countries a calling for that long over 200000000000 plus a year of finance for adaptation mitigation as well as you calls for loss or damage . finance, 900000000 was pro his way back in 2009. exactly. so, you know, right to be frustrated and to feel like essentially a lot of these rich countries are acting in bad size, demanding that they continue to increase their own ambitions domestically while
1:07 am
they're not delivering on promises made so long ago. you mentioned fossil fuels, what do you make of the u. k. presidency pushing everything pushing for resolution all the time, all the time. they say that we need change, but yet there's talk of developing this big oil field. not too far away from here in the north. yeah, it's pretty difficult to reconcile. i think. i mean, yeah, you do have the fact that it is progress that fossil fuels for the 1st time being mentioned explicitly in a cult decision. well, at least in the draft that we have now, hopefully it will survive. but as you say, you know, the u. k. government is considering opening up this massive new oil fuel. the camera, which is the 1st of setting you orland gas fields in the north say that it's considering improving in the next 3 years. which is why you can imagine mary. so much pushback on explicitly calling out oil, gas and coal in the text as being fundamental to addressing the root cause of the crisis. how much influence does the fossil fuel lobby bring to bear events like
1:08 am
this? well, i think there are 2 ways. there's the fact that they heavily influence the policies of fossil fuel producing country. so at harm, you know, their influence is already felt in climate domestic climate policy in the u. k. for example. you know, the u. k is actually the most profitable country in the world for large offshore oil and gas projects. and that's because of the tax regime that's been designed to give huge tax breaks to oil and gas companies. so it is sort of embedded influence in existing climate policies of governments. and then of course you've got the fact that there are $500.00 fossil fuel lobbyist here at cop, you know, which on there i would represent the biggest delegation of any country. i'm certainly considerably bigger than any of the climate vulnerable countries. and you know, they are continuing despite the fact that in a report commissioned by the u. k. as hot president by the international energy agency, you know, the world's premier energy body. they made it clear we can't have any new oil,
1:09 am
gas or cold developments if we're going to stay below that 1.5 degree threshold, but they're still he applying their wares, mariah test. great for thank you very much indeed that just to calm their climate lawyer, i'd be interesting to see as a say what happens a when mistakes emerge is tomorrow at 8 o'clock, and whether or not coal will still be in it. we shall see. all right, thank you very much, our environment at a 10 o'clock following cop 26 climate summit and glasgow. ah cat eyes agreed to represent the concealer interests for the united states in afghanistan. this is a development that represents a new level of diplomatic ties between katara in the us and acknowledges the difficulty of dealing with a group. the u. s. doesn't recognize as an address in that government. also in jordan reports. ah, when the afghan government fell to the toll bond in august, the us relied on its military and on cutter to evacuate,
1:10 am
americans and afghans at risk. nearly 3 months later, washington and doha, are formalizing a collaboration born out of crisis. cutter will establish a u. s. intersection within its embassy in afghanistan to provide certain costs for services, and monitor the condition, security of your step amount of facilities in afghanistan. the 2nd agreement, formalize is our partnership with cutter to facilitate the travel of afghans with us special immigrant pieces. the last of the u. s. embassy officials left cobble on august 31st. so it's been very difficult for the state department to get passports and visas to us and afghan citizens. now, cutlery officials and cobble will fill that void more important. they'll act as a go between for the taliban and the biden administration. the cutter re foreign minister says the agreement will help advance another u. s. cutter priority supporting the afghan people,
1:11 am
especially when it comes to human rights. we believe engaging with body bon, since they are empowered right now is very important for us to ensure that our facilitation for humanitarian assistance is moving smoothly and also encouraging them and urging them all the time to send up to their commitments and their pledges for the international community. the agreement also shows just how far relations between the u. s. and cutter have come, despite occasional differences. after nearly 50 years of diplomatic ties, the trumpet ministration backed the g. c. c. blockade against doha, imposed in june 2017. a diplomatic route, only resolved in january and analysts say cutters. new role, representing the interests of the world's most powerful country. and a contentious region represents a payoff of years of diplomatic ambition. cutter has been in the game so to speak
1:12 am
for quite some time when it comes to the situation with afghan standing rest relations with on. so i actually think that it's a very logical choice and it makes good sense from know his perspective. the deal between the us and cutter is limited and scope. it doesn't mean that they agree on how to engage the taliban as a political entity. and only experience will show whether having a proxy represent the u. s. as entrance and cobble will actually satisfy it's long term national security goals. rosalyn jordan al jazeera, the state department, 2 people have been killed and 18 injured after a bomb was set off in a mosque in afghanistan's nangle province. device was reported a place in the sunny mosque pulpit. now there have been a similar spate of attacks on sheer mosques. many of them have been claimed by i sell in afghanistan, a been no claims of responsibility though for this latest attack. now donald

1:16 am
they are absolutely exhausted. they are terrified because obviously they are hiding in the forests for days just not to be caught by a border patrol. these scenes were filmed by russia. sputnik agency, apparently showing bela russian forces. hanging out food is not clear how many of the thousands of people camped out. will have got anything. here as a woman, lies ill on the grounds, people show a bellow, russian, god, what isomer inhalers she needs. some families have been given the basics of diapers, medicine, and drinking water. but as the main response on either side continues to be a military one, these people are stuck in a political game. they can't control, and still they keep coming. oh, these images apparently show polish troops watching has been a russian security forces, direct people along the border when they get there, the only thing they seem to get in any quantity right now is would to burn innocently because of called her baby seek her eyes. her problem arise

1:26 am
linked to political elites. lebanon is also one of the most unequal countries in the world where some 10 percent of the population holds nearly 70 percent of the wealth. while 40 percent of public revenue comes from taxes that affect the poor. the authorities robin blame for decades of mismanagement and corruption have failed to stop the economic collapse. it took 13 months of political bickering before they agreed on a new cabinet in september, but it hasn't been able to convene in the past month of a new political crisis. why they should tear blamed government in action for what he called a manufactured crisis that ruined lives and condemned the majority of the population and to poverty. do population is facing unprecedented challenges, impoverishment is widespread. i saw scenes in lebanon that i had not imagined. i would ever see in the middle income country, the you and envoy didn't describe lebanon as a failed state,
