4:03 pm
opening of a new page between cobble and washington baron by these are once enemies on the battlefield. now, representatives of governments sitting around a conference table. so this diplomatic dance begins. there's a chasm between the 2 sides that now somehow needs to be diplomatically bridged with concessions. the acting foreign minister said that the primary focus of the talks thus far a were about the distribution of much needed humanitarian aid, or is an evolving and deteriorating humanitarian crisis. in afghanistan, a concern by the americans that humanitarian aid is not being destroyed, distributed smoothly. the acting for foreign minister said that the afghans will ensure that the aid is distributed. however, it did not make mention of the united states concerns, but female aid workers are not being allowed to do their jobs unimpeded. another
4:04 pm
topic of conversation, according to the foreign minister, was implemented implementation of the doha agreements. here you have the taliban once again though, reminding the world in the united states that its sovereignty cannot be interfered with. that quote. we don't want anyone to interfere in our internal affairs to the taliban leaders came here with for sure money on their minds. they have asked the united states to lift sanctions and restrictions on the afghan national bank. in turn, the afghan delegation says that it will work on pain government employees and providing services to the population. in turn, the apparently the american delegation has pledged to provide coven night, tina vaccinations for afghans. now, one of the things that is surely a point of common ground between the 2 groups is this issue of security. the
4:05 pm
afghanistan is reeling from 2 major bombings in the last week that have killed dozens of people. and though publicly, the afghans have said that they will not work with the united states to help weaken iceland, afghanistan, clearly, both sides want to provide some stability and from the americans point of view stability and money go hand in hand. the foreign minister said that the, that afghanistan is aware that making the country stable is in the best interests of the international community. and it plans to do what it can to work towards that the united states has said from the onset that this meeting is what it is, is a continuation of pragmatic quote engagement with the taliban. and what it is not from the american perspective, is recognition of the taliban or conferring legitimacy. those are direct quotes. so it'll be interesting to see where things go from here. but as is always the case,
4:06 pm
these types of things begin with an initial 1st meeting. and that's what we've had so far in doha today. natasha, thanks very much live now to cobble and correspond there. some have been debate. so sama, is it significant that when they were putting the delegation together, the embryonic taliban administration, i guess they would say we're going to become the government one day pretty soon. they were putting names in the frame that weren't involved in the discussions in doha, before the taliban takeover. well, it is an interesting transition, far a movement which has been a fighting force for the last 2 decades. do now change itself all of a sudden a to a governing body and this is what you seeing in the her now, i mean, 100 looky, you see this statesman now from a taliban fighter, the evolution of these group into a government with at least they're trying to be this is hugely significant because it is the 1st meeting where the taliban interim government is interacting with the
4:07 pm
rest of the world, not on their soil. they have moved to doha. after long weeks of discussions, the earlier we were talking to thought about leaders were telling us that there can be no negotiations until the united states fulfills its obligations that it had in writing committed with the taliban in doha. but then they moved from that and they wanted to go to door. hi, there was a lot of shuttle diplomacy from the factory special on why going to be all government to cobble going to door meeting people. and then in the lead up to this meeting, you saw the you and representative designated by the taliban meeting, not just ambassadors from the region, but international players as well. and taliban saying that they are going to be talking to european union leaders as well. so there is a not that is at stake here for the taliban, if you heard only that, they are there because they want to help the afghan people that just don't have the money. as you've been hearing the reports, that as the former government went, it took all the money with them and billions and billions of dollars are now a frozen for the afghan international at the have gone central bank as well. so of
4:08 pm
course, there is a myriad of problems that a lot of fun faces. economics being the 1st one because winter is approaching, millions of people are desperately in need of aid. and we've been seeing visits from the united nations bodies, the world health organizations, a doctors without borders. everybody underlining the fact that the international community has probably weeks, not months to act. and they have, they cannot use the aid and the afghan money that they're frozen as a bargaining chip to put taliban into the shape that they want them to be. oh, sama benjamin. the in. cobble, thanks so much. talk to you later. and exclusion and anger. our province in eastern afghanistan has killed the governor of the local district. 3 of his guards were wounded. an explosive device had been planted on the side of the road. no group has claimed responsibility. afghanistan spacing, economic crisis that plunging millions of people into poverty. and border closures are worsening. the economic outlook the taliban is,

4:17 pm
thanks very much man. a trainer, join his life from tripoli. nearly 800000 people were displaced in northern mozambique during a 4 year conflict. osh about fighters targeting the resource rich region until rwandan force is helped push them out. now people are waiting for it to be safe enough to return to their homes. malcom web. now reports from a bow we found neurology uses sitting by the roadside. he'd been hiding in a nearby forest for weeks, fearing for his life. they know he showed us around a village and for now his home here in northern mozambique, and that is not his every one here also fled. he sleeps in one of the abandoned homes. people have been running away from an armed group called al. sure, bab, notorious for beheading and abducting people, or mac india, amid avoiding i don't know where exactly they've all gone, but they must still be hiding in the forest. because when you leave,
4:18 pm
when you have to hide in the forest, you have to run directly. you cannot stop because if they find you, if they find you and they will kill, you look on more just in the last 3 months. rwandan soldiers have fought the armed group out of the towns. it controlled in cupboard delgado province. the supporting mozambique government there had been losing ground in most towns. the armed group retreated into the forests as the rwandan forces advanced. in a few places like the armed groups headquarters in the town of and bow they fought, the rwandan forces pushed him out of it following a heavy battle. and you can see the remains of it. explosives have blown the roof of this building in the bullet holes in the iron sheets. and on the floor you can see the remains of the shopkeepers property, all of the people that used to live here. and now wondering if or when it will be safe for them to come home. around 700000 people have been displaced by the conflict. we met some scattered around the towns and villages. when there were,
4:19 pm
when an army took us to visit the places it now controls the area that we visited together is pacified. and we are returning. i did is back to their homes and working closely with them was on the can and me to where sure that we conduct continuous security operations. most of the displaced are encamped where they're given some food and other help. the un says many areas still aren't safe for people to go back. the are military accompanying b returns. the voluntary returns of the of civilians is not ideal. um, obviously this can lead to these, so the civilians being a targeted and of course associate return movements with, with military aims cover. delgado was extremely poor even before the conflict began . 4 years ago. the mozambique in state was largely absent that fuel discontent,
4:20 pm
as did preparations to extract tens of billions of dollars worth of nearby offshore natural gas. french oil giant total suspended its operations because of the conflict. people here have been in need of government help for generations. now they'll need even more help to return to what's left of their homes. malcolm web al jazeera, bow mozambique. ok, let's bring in from pembert dominic still heart director of operations of international committee of the red cross dominic still heart. welcome back to the news or such a huge, i mean, it's a massive internal displacement. is that now over stretching even further? all ready, overstretched resources? yes, we just saw your program before. this has traditionally been a couple days ago though, has traditionally been a very poor province,
4:21 pm
and i'm just back from the question which is a to under 10 kilometers in land from pen on. we could see 1st hand how a town has been completely overwhelmed by the massive influx of internally displaced people at for instance, health services all the way. and that is obviously also a shortage of safe drinking water. and therefore, i know argent need for organizations like the international committee of the red cross to do whatever it takes to improve the service is not just for the in time of the place, but also for the host communities. when you talk about those host communities, i mean on conflict is, is being conflated with climate change, mozambique for some reason. it seems to have been at the epicenter of those 2 things coming together for a good few years now. and when you got so many internally displaced people,
4:22 pm
they traditionally settle on the outskirts of these rural towns. these were rural communities where the water and the supply is the food supplies. find it very difficult to get to any way. surely. yes indeed, the amazon make is one of these kind of 2 studies most exposed to, to climate change. we saw it 2019 rates i. e die and kenneth stuff more or less the same areas a little bit north and a little bit of silence of where i am now in panama. and obviously you can really see people are suffering not just from climate change, social exclusion, and marginalization but no, not also by these terrible conflict that has taken a very terrible toll on the population you say before and more than $700.00. close 280-0000 people this place and they are indeed settling in the main arbin
4:23 pm
centers, putting a lot of pressure, not just on host community general, but on the public services that already it was insufficient, fragile, and weak. for the whole populations. it's usually the case dominate the throwing money at these, these internally displaced issues is not enough. there has to be a plan of the back of the money being donated. but this plan has to be incredibly complicated and well thought through. even if there is a plan, and on top of that, if we're talking about climate change, that's a big, big variable that people have to react to as, as a matter of urgency week to week, month to month. absolutely are entirely right. and that is also why we do in places such as monkey where she's not just emergency a yes, farces, a saving assistance, but now we are really doing everything we possibly can to strengthen the provision
4:24 pm
of health care and the provision of safe drinking water by supporting the authorities to hands also reduce the water authorities to that, to bring about more sustainable solutions because otherwise we are just contributing to the effects of climate change on water sources and so on and so forth. so it's really important that we adapt our response to the situation on the grounds hadn't been to so support systems that are run by the authorities. don't we have to leave it that. thanks so much. dominic, still out there. thank you very much. lebanon has no electricity nationwide office to biggest power plants shut down because of the country's crippling fuel shortages . generators are currently the only way to get power prior to the outage. many in lebanon were receiving just 2 hours of power per day from the state electricity
