8:19 pm
disaster is present at the bottom. but maybe that was the fact that they didn't just yesterday. there are many details that of course need to be provided because i wanted to get him out of the doors. the thing that i have for the country that my message is what i saw, what more people that you should not judge if you do not have that information and details outcomes. i mean that's one of our newer made up their mind. han how that leaders also have to leave and go to kandahar or other places might be off by the way, there's going to be another stage and that is up tomorrow. what
8:20 pm

8:22 pm
medical coverage. she the negotiation that had when i was upon by the law post quest i support them. liter commercial, william trying security and defense forces. that's what i'm asking, what that will affect what it did. but when it comes to the political leadership of the taller than that it was, it was a failure on their part on a failure, on our part, the negotiations did not lead to anything to the gen, eat that this process should lead to the end of last become pay the kid because they want to buy some ministration. be what
8:23 pm
actually i'm to survey to jail will be that the gross ations among staff can should be african living. i was caught recall that all american you probably know what has been done. one last mistakes model. currently i'm in the u a. e. so that disasters are avoided. i'm in consultation with content return on and on to so that i could continue my efforts for justice for the african and to achieve the chief mr. real slow make. i'm national achievement, the people don't have scanners and the flight for them to be there. thank you very much. well, for all the messages that you sent them.
8:24 pm
thank you very much. love the long live have scanners on probably just for very, but shauna sweets address the via his facebook life page from us. rap ghani, the format now president of afghanistan. let's just take you through what he had to say. he was talking for what may be 10 minutes, i guess just a little over 10 minutes, a very, very personal address to the people of afghanistan, the broader region, the international community, talking about just that immediate time that period of time when he decided to leave the countries that events took place very fast. my purpose had been to pave away for transition as ups in sunday, working on order for cobble, his security people advised him to get away. if he stayed, he would have witness bloodshed in couple of people cobble of witness bloodshed because there has been bloodshed in cobbled a city. of course he didn't say that that's me saying that and in the, the province of cobble as well. he said he was forced to leave what took place
8:25 pm
before was going to happen again. he said, referring to the events of, i guess the 198900 ninety's up to the point when the taliban will banish many details need to be provided. and i guess he's teasing us a little bit there. he said he had to leave his main assets and confidential documents. he described the process going on around him. now as a personality fascination, he said it's baseless. he said he thanked the defense forces, political leadership of the taliban, and the political leadership of afghanistan failed the people of afghanistan, listening to all of that for us as ever, was our diplomat to get. it's a james base james, no message to the people of afghanistan, no reading or no kind of descriptive language as if he seems to understand or not the enormity of what's happening. just his justification for why he left and why he fled afghanistan. he actually said that i
8:26 pm
didn't flee afghan a storm, but every one is aware. that's exactly what happened. also trying to justify how he left. because remember that been numerous allegations that he left with suitcases full of cash. in fact, the african embassy and touchy cust on, as they were taking down his picture in the embassy were demanding interpol arrest him. there been demands. also, the russians special special adviser on afghanistan, as a said recently above the cobble of perhaps the african people should put ash rough connie on trial. and i think he's trying to defend himself. he said certainly that he did. he only went because he was forced by his security officials and then he claimed that as soon as he left people actually came to the presidential palace looking for him. there's nothing that we can find. i think at this stage to support that claim. certainly we understand that he left with to close officials with hand i'm dilemma. he who is his national security advisor and fossil finally,
8:27 pm
who is the director or administrative affairs in the presidential palace? very, but 2 people very close to 100 cars. i but peter, it's worth telling you that most of the others in the government, sorry, you're close to shop gunny. it's worth telling you that most of the others in the presidential palace and among the cabinet are really despising the former president now. and it was, i think, pretty true even a couple of weeks ago was, you know, i was in cobble a couple of weeks ago. i spent a little bit of time in the presidential palace. i spoke to the senior members of the ghani government to follow ministers as well. and there wasn't really much of a good word to be said about a chef, connie, and clearly, the way he's held in afghanistan has got worse since the way he departed. i've got a son, he of course denying that he took suitcases of cash saying he just took his show. welcome ease his additional afghan robes. and i've gone shirt and left. cobble.
8:28 pm
he's turned up we believe in the united arab emirates. we think in dubai. will we hear anything more from a shop, connie? i think it seems very unlikely despite he says, there'll be another episode that he's going to play any important role in the future of afghanistan. now is he also slightly misinterpreting the events that took place over the past? what, particularly the last week, james, maybe the last 2 weeks and he said, what happened should have led to an end to the war. because whilst yes, it was being labeled, particularly where you are by some of the american networks as being a war. another war and i've got a storm, they were large areas where it was actually more of a drive by shooting on the part of the taliban because the african security apparatus was turning tail and running. it was taking off its uniforms or it was even being kind of subscript it if you will, or subscribe into being part of the tongue about absolutely such surprising events and such speed to all of that. he may have been referring to
8:29 pm
that. i think he's also possible he was referring to what should have happened to the p steel, because remember the u. s. did sign a piece deal did did sign a piece deal with the taliban. and there was supposed to be a negotiated settlement between the government of afghanistan and the taliban. and of course it didn't. and like that, it ended in a military way with the taliban taking control of the situation on the ground in cobble. he's certainly not the president now, and even his vice president who still enough got to stop. he says he is now the caretaker, president of afghanistan and interesting, the umbrella solid, the vice president is in penn share. that's a small province of i've got install just a little finger of territory, but it's the one little bit of afghanistan that hasn't at this stage been properly controlled by the taliban rule. a solid who i don't think was in a sort of tactical coalition with our shop gunny,
8:30 pm
but i don't think will be described is one of these close allies says he's going to continue fighting against the taliban. for now though, pretty clear who is in pretty much total control of most of the country, and that is the taliban, james, as ever, plasm anything. sir james bay's diplomatic editor there at the un in new york, astro ghani, the former president of f canister on saying as well, i am proud of what we have done. i'm in the u. e. so disasters are avoided. we are in consultations with others. i want to achieve real achievements. for accounting, donnie said, ah, $1730.00 g. your top stories, as we've been on air this half hour, the former president of afghanistan ash ref. connie has just spoken to the afghan people via his facebook life page from where he's staying right now. the united arab emirates there had been confusion about his whereabouts since he left the
