8:50 am
goal of our piece is is a ceasefire and indicted negotiation with the taliban so these 2 components are very important. the taliban refuses to talk directly with the afghan government who she regards as illegitimate and corrupt but it did agree to negotiate with the u.s. these forces invaded afghanistan 18 years ago after the 911 attacks on america there have been 9 rounds of talks it's october last year but during that time taliban fighters have carried out numerous attacks and suicide bombings and america has also continued its air campaign who just hit the taliban but this year has also caused the biggest number of civilian casualties the latest taliban bombing was in kabul last thursday in which 12 people were killed including an american soldier 2 days later the u.s. president in a tweet ditched what he said was going to be a secret meeting at camp david even as the taliban was claiming responsibility for
8:51 am
thursday's attack zalmay khalilzad the u.s. chief negotiator was on his way to katter for further talks that were later described as positive but the afghan government said the talks gave the taliban recognition the taliban has responded angrily to trump canceling the talks in a statement released on its website they said the agreement was finalized on saturday both sides agreed to all points they talked about intra afghan talks to begin on september the 23rd but warned that their struggle will continue and the u.s. would suffer more the u.s. has been criticized for offering the taliban too much for raising fears that the country could descend into civil war once the bulk of american forces withdraw if there is a new agreement between the problem in the united states government about the role of the party following forces. that will be the wedding. not the only part of that would be the way the world situation part of that region and the
8:52 am
international community and that is something that troubles many afghans a lot of arguing as we know the taliban is not trustworthy and they do whatever they want and they misuse islamic laws in a terrifying way this country boy be better with them in the government. we are free of the taliban come out not only will women's rights be violated but also all human rights. all sides appear to agree that militarily they can be no winner in this conflict but also achieving a lasting peace is not going to be easy either where this leaves the peace process is anyone's guess it depends largely on what the taliban chooses to do next either escalate the violence or return to the negotiating table in a different frame of mind afghanistan waits to see which one it will be tony berkeley al jazeera kabul. talks between the u.s. and the taliban are dead at least for the time being following donald trump surprise cancellation of
8:53 am
a secret summit with taliban leaders at the president's retreat at camp david we made real progress and then the taliban failed to live up to a series of commitments that they had made when that happened president trump said i'm not going to take that deal i'm not going to work with someone that can't deliver on their commitments pump a also said the u.s. special envoy for afghanistan is being recalled and he warned that things are about to get worse for the taliban after fighters took responsibility for a suicide bomb attack that killed 12 people in kabul last week including a u.s. soldier trumps national security adviser john bolton and republican party politicians have been dubious about the nearly year long negotiations hosted by cantars saying taliban leaders are not to be trusted it doesn't seem to get better but i'm sure it will get worse if we leave frankly i think backing away from where we were just dealing with the taliban is the right thing to do leaving troops there for right now is the right thing to do democrats criticized drops to go shooting
8:54 am
style saying he doesn't take advice from experts that our president isn't listening to his generals to his diplomats to the intelligence community frankly that's largely why general mattis for whom i have huge respect resigned in protest was our president tendency to make a proper decisions without knowing the context or the region and without relying on the advice of the skilled diplomats and generals we have trump has promised to withdraw around $14000.00 u.s. troops based in afghanistan failure to fulfill that pledge could have adverse political consequences in the presidential election a little over a year from now whether the talks are truly dead remains to be seen pompei own noted that trump has employed similar tactics before only to resume negotiations later he walked away and annoy. from the north koreans when they wouldn't do a deal that made sense for america will do that with the iranians when the chinese

moved away from the trade agreement with the talks on hold the longest war in u.s. history will continue to drag on approximately 2400 u.s. service members have died in afghanistan since 2001 and more than 100000 afghan civilians soldiers and fighters have lost their lives robert oulds al jazeera washington. in what's become a familiar pattern a day of protest in central hong kong that began peacefully has ended in chaos police fired tear gas to disperse people who have walked frode said barricades on fire and vandalized a metro station earlier large crowds rallied without incident at the u.s. consulate some holding signs calling on president trump to liberate the chinese controlled territory from hong kong divya gopalan has more. this is one of hong kong's main shopping districts usually a very busy place on a sunday night and as you can see it's been brought to
8:56 am
a standstill with white police over here blocking the road they chased the protesters here from the financial district and tried to disperse them using tear gas among the shoppers and the crowds on a sunday night long long ago we saw people running with small children without any protection away from the tear gas so instead now up just protesters here confronting the police well we're seeing as regular shoppers and regular people trying to confront the police off them why they're using such excessive force when there are people who have nothing to do with the protests this has been a constant refrain and this has been the next step in the protests that we are seeing where people want to leave accountability for their actions this is in stark contrast to the protests we saw earlier today when thousands of people marched to the u.s. embassy calling on the u.s. to push through a bill that would give them greater powers to safeguard hong kong's autonomy.
8:57 am
the british government is preparing for more showdowns this week prime minister boris johnson insists he's sticking to his e.u. departure plan and won't seek an extension beyond october 31 this is despite the fact that a law is about to come into force compelling him to ask for a. delay if no withdrawal agreement is in place well any delay must be approved by the e.u. and france is suggesting it would block any british request for a one. with how things are now it's still no to pushing back to break that deadline the u.k. says they want to push forward alternatives to avoid a no deal but we haven't received anything so we'd still know we're not going to start over every 3 months it's up to the u.k. to show us the way forward prime minister johnson's short time in power has been tumultuous the past week so johnson's own brother resigned from the government
8:58 am
along with a senior cabinet minister has also lost his conservative government's majority and expelled $21.00 so-called rebel m.p.'s one of whom is the grandson of winston churchill lawrence the reports. london's parliament square is graced with a statue of britain's most famous politician and the ghost of winston churchill his legacy and beliefs have very much been on people's minds in this extraordinary contradictory week. when parliament resumes prime minister boris johnson himself a biographer of churchill invoked the language and even the intonation of the wartime leader to suggest that the u.k. was somehow in a conflict with the european union he used the very same words about the e.u. that churchill had done about nazi germany in 1945 you never surrender that sort of language comes from the playbook of johnson's new chief of staff dominic cummings a brick said idealogue behind the slogan take back control and cummings many
8:59 am
believe was also behind the brutal treatment of those conservatives who could not accept johnson's agenda contrary to the prime minister's assertion one of those was cynical assumes a conservative grandy summarily sacks with 20 others for refusing to support johnson's do or die approach to leaving the european union but his speech after being told he was no longer welcomed johnson's conservative party was extraordinary not least because johnson had sacked the grandson of winston churchill here they were together in 1954. i'm truly very sad that it should end in this way only does my most fervent hope that this house will rediscover the spirit of compromise humility and understand that will enable us to finally to push ahead with the vital work in the interests of the whole country sitting in front of soames was another conservative rebel richard benyon who was also sex the next day
9:00 am
he told me of his concerns about the direction the party he loved was being taken in the attitude of some of the people. who were around the prime minister not the not only coming to speak about that yes and you know i think they have a big responsibility for the size of the rebellion last night and some of the things that were said to colleagues of mine more extraordinary. the generally held view is that the johnson administration is now so terrified of nigel farage as breck's it party that despises the european union but it will no longer brook any dissent that was to status in british politics forced the referendum in the 1st place and now it seems he is driving the conservative party.
