6:03 pm
a number of months. the government has st. special forces there to protect the city . it is a huge asset for the government and a huge priority for the government to hold onto that city. hundreds of thousands of people live via cell phones. when down there earlier today, we understand that the, the telephone had been pushing, but it's only just now that we've started to hear little bits of information about the tell about being in the heart of the city. hey, be fighting ongoing, some videos of convoys of security forces coming out on social media, showing them exiting the city. so there's a lot happening there, the telephone claiming it. but as far as we are aware, there was still a heavy fighting ongoing via so this is incredibly significant. the 2nd biggest city and it's going to stand the 3rd biggest city in afghanistan on the heavy attack as we speak with taliban seem in the center of those cities. we understand that there are special forces in kandahar, but we understand that they are at the airport and it's unclear what kind of
6:04 pm
experiences they may be trying to mount at this point. has been a 3rd day of talks in cut out involving the taliban and representatives from afghanistan government. the u. s. envoy has met diplomats from china, pakistan and russia. other meetings with diplomats from the u. s. u india and also taking place us get more on the talks now with my jim jim who is life for us in the hallway. those talks are taking place. so mm hm. a day, 3 of 3. any progress made so far has and there been no official statements that have been made thus far today with regard to all the delicate diplomacy that has been going on. it is unclear what exactly is being discussed. these are closed sessions that are happening just behind my left shoulder down that hallway. that is where the meeting is currently going on between the delegation of the taliban and the various special envoys that have assembled
6:05 pm
here, including us special envoy for afghanistan, all my lives at and the pottery, special envoy, doctor butler and bonnie. now, what we do know thus far today is that just a few hours ago, there was a meeting between the african government delegation and the envoys that are here. that meeting lasted about an hour and a half, as it was expected to the meeting. that has been going on between the taliban and the envoys has now just surpassed the 2 hour mark. we are trying to find out exactly what is being discussed. but many of the diplomats that have been here have been load to speak on the record just yet. what we do know is there is a great push here to try to come up with some sort of consensus, some sort of an international planning to not just deal with the situation, the rapidly deteriorating situation on the ground in afghanistan, but also to try to formulate a way forward for the intro afghan piece process that dialogue has been taking
6:06 pm
place in durham since this past september. and if you'll see, actually just now, right behind me, that's members of the taliban delegation. they have just emerged from that meeting with us special envoy. so i'll make those out as well as the other envoys that have assembled and we are going to try to find out exactly what was discussed in that meeting. so that meeting just lasted a little over 2 hours when we reached out to the taller bond earlier in the day to try to find out what their position was for. they have not given out any details. they have not given out any information. we did get a statement earlier in the day from dr. de la de la. he is the head of the supreme council for national reconciliation in afghanistan, and he is leading the african government delegation. he put out a statement saying that yesterday his delegation had met with the had met with the extended troika, the extend a truck as a group of countries. it includes the u. s. russia, china, and pockets. and it is
6:07 pm
a moscow back initiative that has tried to facilitate the intro afghan negotiations . the last time they met was here. and at the end of april of this year, and in that statement, dr. abdullah said that they had presented a plan to the whole country of these talks doctor, as well as to the troika countries essentially proposing what they believe would be a solution for the crisis in afghanistan. and in that statement, it also included the fact that doctor de la had said that the african government delegation believes that a mediator could perhaps play a facilitating role in any negotiations going forward. what the response might be from the taliban. with regard to this proposal, we just don't know yet, it's been a real open question mark hovering over this process as to what exactly can be achieved at such a delicate time. this is a critical time for us kind of start, especially at a time when it's all a bond seems to have so much more meant them as they're taking over more and more parts of afghanistan. and that's really one of the reasons diplomats are privately
6:08 pm
so concerned because they don't feel as though they have much leverage as far as to try to get the taliban back to the negotiating table. but everybody involved here wants to see that interaction piece, process back contract. the question is going to be how exactly will that be achieved? has a very fluid situation or wrap them and how much am june live for their indoor? now william pay t is a former british ambassador to afghanistan. he is not convinced the taliban are willing to negotiate seriously. considering their recent gains, telephone were willing to engage in meaningful talk to the government of afghanistan, where even before the us had decided to withdraw the troops, they've got what they wanted from the doha process. they've got us to withdraw me the nature of truth with ro. i can't see why they would at this stage compromise. they think they can take africa stand by force, and that's what they're going to try and do over the next few months. is they
6:09 pm
resist the talk to many years when i was enough kind this down, we try to engage the taliban. and in meaningful talks we, we knew that they represented a constituency in afghanistan. places by helmand and kandahar and other places were always contested by the telephone. so there was an effort to bring them into talks, but they seemed to they were resistant. even then when we had 100000 troops in the country. so i don't see when they're made such dramatic great gains of the past few months. they're going to call a halt at this stage as they will, they will try and negotiate if a toe, the only way that negotiated the get that fought to a stalemate. uncertainty is growing within afghanistan's media, as the conflict intensifies of radio station manager and a journalist were killed by suspect to taliban fighters this week. now there are plans to move others to safe countries of diplomat to get it to jane's base reports . ah,
6:10 pm
