2:04 am
the number like will be crazy. going because that the countries on and a lot of these people are trying to get through into the airport. well, the u. s. sectors that anthony lincoln says about 1500 americans may still be awaiting evacuation from gun a son. he insist diplomatic efforts will continue beyond august 31st, blink, and added that america remains engaged with the child bon. despite not recognizing the group as the legitimate political leadership in the country, the taliban, whether we like it or not, is in control, largely in control. the country certainly control is the city of trouble. and it's been important to work with them to try to facilitate mature the departure of all those who want to leap. and that has actually been something that we've been been focused on for from the beginning of this operation. because as
2:05 am
a practical matter, it advances our interests. the 2nd. we've been engaged with the taliban for some time, diplomatically going back. years and effort says, you know, to try to advance a peaceful settlement of, of the conflict in afghan. stan allan versus earning us from washington d. c. tell us more about what blanket had to say. what was the take away message? is the reality of the situation that the taliban are in control and cabal, and their control of the airport. if the americans want to do absolutely, and the thing and avoid getting involved in any sort of battle with the taliban, they have to negotiate. they have to sit down and talk. and we knew from reports here in the united states that the head of the ca has sat down with the head of the taliban to discuss what happens over the next 6 days. tony blink and is also making the point to the taliban. look, 114 countries across the world have said to the taliban,
2:06 am
you have made given assurances both publicly and privately about this evacuation effort. and you have to continue to do that. certainly we know that the taliban are keen to have more international recognition than they did the last time. they were a power in afghanistan 20 years ago. remember then only 3 governments in the world recognize the taliban government. they would like to see a lot more and 20 blanket. know is that the united states, a lot of the allies, the g 7 nato. they have a lot of leverage. so they want to make sure that the taliban are aware of that as well. no. anthony blinking says that there are 1500 americans in the united in afghanistan as best they know. because many people don't automatically register with the embassy. they're in contact with 500 of them, and they're hoping to be in touch with more. they are offering him the opportunity to leave the country. now they also want to support the taliban allies as solely
2:07 am
the american allies that stood against the taliban and the king to get them out of the country as well. but the point they have made on several occasions is that this isn't a free pass for anyone who just doesn't want to spend their time. and i've got a son under the taliban. the has to be a connection with the us or the have to be what's considered a vulnerable group. now you remember that on tuesday, joe biden said he wanted to see contingency plans for what happens if the united states can get everyone out by august. the 31st he was presented with those plans at some point on wednesday. they will keep those plans under review because the situation continues to be very fluid and get this done and your bite and is still very keen to meet that deadline. ok, thank you so much, allen for ser reporting from washington d. c. l 0 senior political analyst model and shot us policy failures towards of dentist on extend far beyond just the biden administration. there is
2:08 am
a lot of blame to be set at the doorstep of job by them at least operationally and in terms of timing, clearly he did not. he did not read well. certainly the, his c, i a did not give him the rights report, but what would happen once the us forces start start to withdrawal. finally, from getting started. this has been a long time coming 1020 years. in fact, one could say that this whole operation, this whole war, started on the wrong footing. this was a revenge war. the united states wanted to venge the 911 attacks and it carried this war against against town. and within less than 2 years, declaring mission accomplished. but it did not the trunk negotiated with a thought with the taliban without eating the public government getting involved with that the regional countries getting involved. so trump recognize basically the pilot and surrender afghan is afghanistan to the finally been so bite. and
2:09 am
basically it's been walking, he hits put in his footsteps because he wants to end the war. and clearly in the united states, if it's going to deal with against the future, we'll have to deal with the taliban. yes, the united states will continue to talk to target by, but yes, everything else will be conditional, meaning the next 7 days will be probably the longest, 7 days in the and the last time of job i didn't was i think now 70 plus years. well, the un secretary general says all steps are being taken to keep operations running as have gone to san faces amounting humanitarian crisis. the agency has air lifted, some staff from cobble to kazakhstan, where a temporary office has been set up. my county has more from the united nations viewing, says a 3rd of its international staff have now been relocated from oregon east on to its temporary base in context on in addition, it says a number of gun nationals have also been brought out of the country though there
