12:03 pm
about 2 days ago, and they told them that they are willing to build bridges with the international community. now, my saucers, tell me that basically that expecting to get some sense of diplomatic recognition in the near future, the confidence they've been receiving many positive signals from many countries, including key players in the international community. this is according to diplomatic sources. now when it comes to the u. s, and this is quite interesting, the taliban have been following closely the statements from the u. s. leadership particularly job. i then saying that for america, this is going to be a long way before recognizing the taliban and the u. s. military commanders concerned about the links between the taliban and groups like ice gay and al qaeda affiliates operating here in afghanistan. but however, they believe that because they have been maintaining direct channels of communications with the americans, they say that the confidence,

it's just going to be a matter of time before the americans understand that it's about time to cope with the new political realities on the ground. and that, that is, or the taliban are the ones who have the upper hand. i was talking to many people about what happens the next. does the taliban need to make some concessions before the talent before the americans say it's about time to establish those diplomatic concessions. most of the answers that i got from the taliban official is, is just a matter of few weeks or months before they have those recognitions and hash and the issue as the rights of women and girls had also came up in your conversations. of course, many in the international community, very critical about how the taliban treats women. what did he have to say on that? this is a sticking point and he's creating some problems for the taliban because they're coming under mounting pressure from the international community. because when they

12:06 pm
article hot bell, he thinks it's just a matter of few weeks before girls can go back to school. this listen what you had to say. we have committed and we have guaranteed all the rights that have been afforded to women in islam. that is the right to education, the right to health care, the right to work. and are they the, the process that the world wants us are the steps they want, want us to take, we are taking them, we have seen progress in them. we understand all the complexities, offer off the of the current world. we understand it very well. and we are working . oh, but again, i must emphasize that as the saying sit goes, the rome was not built in a day. so this is what is happening. i'm look a hot bell here, for example, is young. he went abroad for education and then he decided to go back and join the
12:07 pm

12:08 pm
a very gradual away. and particularly when it comes to the issue of women, given women more, say, protecting the freedom of expression of the freedom of thought. this is where we get some divisions. this is where we get some diff interpretations. and we have to say who's going to prevail? who's going to have the oper, say, who's going to say, you know, what, if we ought to do business with the americans, with the europeans of the international community. if we wanted our us, it was hot, been frozen to be sent back to us. it's about time for the toddy been to reinvent itself, but i have to tell you this is something which is tao, debated among the leadership of the thought about who's going to have the upper hand. we'd have to wait and see money. thanks for that hush. hm. i will head up there 1st in kabul, the outgoing philippine president, rodriguez you today is the nouns that he's retiring from politics. he confirmed, he won't stand for the vice presidency in next year's elections despite speculation, to the contrary. that as a concentration,

12:10 pm
the go that there the who was running for the presidency promise and vowed that he will just skip the china to make to, to provide a signal to signal that he will defend the country sovereignty from china's incursions only for him to admit years later that that was simply a joke and that people were gullible enough to believe him and a few weeks ago as another example, he accepted his part is nomination for him to run for the vice presidency. but what is also clear that he backed out again today is that the presidential elections is still very much a very fluid on the ground. there is still 6 days to go before the filing of candidacy and, and there is still up until november 15 for the switching of the candidates. and as you seem a lean, this is a motor party system, which in the end could also mean that there may be 6 or 7 candidates who may switch allegiance and alliances over the next few months. and there may be candidates will

always earned, tried to develop the, the way in which it is governed are contrary to what other countries in the region have been. it's the only country, for example, the gcc that seen a smooth transition of power from one ruler to another. whilst both are alive. we saw that in 2013 when the a mirrors father shut hamid's, or give power to his son, the currents ruler shift. i mean, when it comes to the legislative body or the shorter council, again, it's trying to maybe pave the way for a different model. one that isn't necessarily a crone of western style democracies or european style democracies. and one that is inclusive of the people gives a see to its citizens. unlike many of the absolute monarchies or military dictatorships in the region. and here in is the significance of this is new new phase in the governing process. it is a country drafting a new, a relationship between the citizens and it states, whereby they have
12:21 pm
a greater see not just in legislation, but also in oversights when it comes to ministers. for example, you mentioned there, the shorter counsel having the ability to question and even sack them. so it is a new stage in the modern state of this gulf peninsula and an experience that a lot of countries have been welcoming and they are a significant number f, a female candidates running in this selection. how important is that? women's vase in qatar are in this field, it's another one that are, that has tried to carve a place for it. so even prior to these election when it comes to women impairments . but that has tried to set an example of that cbs through are providing leadership positions or, or a given space for women in leadership positions. we've seen, for example, the current minister of health is
12:22 pm
a woman dealing with the biggest pandemic. and maybe one of the biggest challenges in recent times in terms of coverage to the assistant foreign affairs minister on hospitals or prominence women. and obviously other key figures when it comes to higher education, you're talking about more than 50 percent of students. and cotton are actually women, so when that's translated in these elections, roughly 10 percent of the candidates are women. and we've seen a steady flow of fema vultures coming through the way in which if the system is set up here, is that there are 2 sections to the polling station with when men on one side and women are on the other. but we have access to see both of them and their engagements has been just as a visible as that of the men. so there will be hope, obviously, that this will further that her aim within the country to ensure that the greater representation isn't limited simply to men and young people, but also obviously with women being at the forefront as well. many thanks for that

jamal al child bear for us from that polling station he endo ha, the white house says the president and members of his democratic party have made progress as they try to rescue jo biden's economic plans in a rare presidential move. biden met his party members on capital hill. divisions among democrats threaten his plans. rosen, jordan as the latest from washington. even though you as president joe biden's trip from the white house to capitol hill was televised on friday afternoon. the democratic leader didn't get what he wanted. members of his party agreeing to vote on 2 key pieces of legislation. a $1.00 trillion dollar infrastructure bill, as well as a $3.00 trillion dollar social services and environmental package. that's because progressives and conservatives in the democratic party are split on just how much
12:24 pm
money to spend, even though they all say they want the same things. now the members of the progressive wing, the more liberal wing, have been holding things up in the house of representatives. they say their members were sent because their voters want to see more spending on things such as health care, education, child care, and a clean environment. and they intend to deliver. they say without a guarantee that that $3.00 trillion dollar bill is going to be passed. they're not going to vote for the $1.00 trillion dollar infrastructure bill, which would improve roads, bridges, internet connections, telecommunications, and the nation's power grid. because of this political standing, the president was called in, basically to try to get the more conservative wing of the democratic party and the more liberal wing to find common ground. but even after that closed door entreaty, they didn't really agree on what to do next. this is what the president had to say
12:25 pm
as he left capitol hill on friday afternoon. doesn't matter whether it's a 6 minute day or 6 week, we're going to get it done because members of the health did not vote on a full infrastructure bill. the one that's already been passed by the u. s. senate . they instead spent friday evening voting on a short term 30 day funding package to take care of us until transportation industry needs. that means they're going to have to come back and deal with that matter in a months time. but in the meantime, members of the house of representatives are going back to their districts across the country for the next 2 weeks. if negotiations turn out any sort of wheel, compromise that members of the entire party are willing to support. they could be called back to washington, but as with everything here, don't hold your breath. taiwan has condemned china for sending 38 fighter jets to
