8:04 am
the country's military is fully capable of defending the afghan people that pledge will likely soon be tested. and for more on this i am joined by the that he is bound to regard with the view from brussels bad walk us through the details of this pullout of troops from afghanistan what happens next. but the plans for the us dollar already prepared for months now logistically this is a challenge of cause but it's not unknown because you have to remember that 10 years ago there were 100000 soldiers in afghanistan and $90000.00 of them pulled out over the years so it's it's doable. but it's of course a challenge you have to go to is because done in pakistan because of guns a landlocked country and the most the biggest problem is of course the security of the bistro the taliban threatening that they will attack troops and no the nato militaries have to come up with

a plan how to secure the troops while pulling out the german for example does does not exclude to send more combat troops into afghanistan faucheux told period of time to secure this pull out and the americans will be the very last soldiers to leave because they have the heavy weapons to build t. to secure this pullout they would be the people who shut the door actually in september let's talk a little bit more about where the nato alliance terence stands in all of this move because of course you know the the the agreement to pull troops out between the taliban and the united states was a bilateral one that was made last year nato secretary general said back in february that nato troops would not leave afghanistan before quote the time is right what do nato members make of this. but the german foreign minister who was in brussels yesterday said all 30 allies and then ministry agreed to pull out
8:06 am
politically but you also can hear that some of us was a little bit surprised about the reasoning now that there is no condition attached anymore to the pullout so the troops would leave no matter what in march they nato said we will only leave if the security level is ok but this doesn't play a role anymore and so many soldiers need to know why do we have really achieved what we did aim to achieve 20 years ago what could the pullout mean for the future of peace talks between the afghan government and the taliban and the stability of the government itself but the peace talks suddenly in dire straits the next round was planned in turkey at the end of this month but the taliban already announced that they would not participate to all troops have left the country and the stability of the government in afghanistan is very fragile as far as the troops

are gone there is the fear that the taliban go then more or less take over again and bill be some troops some american troops will be left after september to secure the embassy there also the nato will pay for the photos and the military and police forces to keep that up and running but then the f. guns will be no less left alone to deal with the problems themselves and to reconnect with the view from brussels on this pullout of troops from afghanistan a historic announcement being made that thanks so much for breaking it down for us thanks. let's take a look at some other stories making headlines the us police officer who shot and killed dante wright an unarmed black man has been arrested prosecutors plan to charge kimberly potter with 2nd degree manslaughter she faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted the incident has 3 nights of on pressed to the city of
