6:03 pm
of them have done that yet. and i think every player has been speaking to the taliban. and as you mentioned there, the talks have been on going into how the americans, european union and other countries as well. i keep stressing that this is not, you know, a recognition of them as the official government of afghanistan. but the dialogue is important. i mean, today's also we've just heard from mighty draggy the young it, i am prime minister, a part of the g 20 saying that really, you know, more needs to be done to address the humanitarian situation. also, he referred to the refugees that already outside of afghanistan. this has been a problem that's been going on for very long time. he also said that the afghan banking system needs to be salvage or what is left of it mit doug, of course, used to be the president of the european central bank, so he knows what he's talking about when it comes to money. there's huge challenges here at the moment the country is running out of cash. the international community is withholding billions of dollars much needed dollars really here as part of his political back and forth trying to put pressure on the taliban to form
6:04 pm
a more inclusive government to protect women's rights far more than they have done so far. but really the impact on the ground is that it's the people who are really feeling, you know, the strongest consequences of that people don't have money. there's unemployment, they cannot feed themselves. world food program saying only 5 percent of households have sufficient food to feed their families. a lot of people have a lot of children here. so challenges ahead and even though you mentioned their, you know, mechanisms of more money, i think even the g 20, we understand from sources all agree that more money needs to be brought into the country, not through the taliban. but practically speaking, what mechanisms are going to put it be put in place? how's going to filter through to those who needs it most? none of that has been agreed upon as yet. and steph, as we talk about all these different figures and monies and, and, and the like, i mean, we're actually talking about real people. what's it been like for you? what have you witnessed on the ground in afghanistan? well, every one will tell you that it's a,
6:05 pm
it's the worst that it's been and it's not as if his country was doing very well before the taliban took over. the economy was already dire out. people already was struggling when it came up unit to making ends meet. and what you have now is basically people cannot access their cash is a cash flow problem here. according to reports, most of the money was removed from the banks before the taliban even took power. people are allowed to withdrawal only $200.00 a week if you have that in the bank that is own in one particular place in cobble and maybe 2 or 3 other cities in the country. so atems are not working. so there is that other people who work hand to mouth to go out every day, all sort of day workers. many of those cannot find work. people are selling their smallest household items just to be able to feed themselves. many people are not feeding themselves. and there is an issue of starvation and that's very real. all the 8 agencies are warning about that. you have a health sector that again, agencies, a warning is on the brink of collapse. this country basically has become so dependent on foreign money over the last 2 decades that withholding it all of
6:06 pm
a sudden is having dire consequences that i think this is why we also heard from cutters. emir, a controversy playing a quite a crucial role between the americans and the taliban. throughout these negotiations, saying that there has to be a practical solution that something needs to be result or you need to talk to both sides. and certainly i think, you know, the money is now part of this political game between the international community and the taliban, but it's having very severe consequences on the ground here for the people. it certainly is. thank you for that update. stephanie deca that live for us in campbell and deputy executive director and eunice, if are my abt de visited afghanistan last week, he says the humanitarian crisis has deteriorated and will likely continue. even before the recent i, people, we estimated about 10000000 children were in need of humanitarian support. and at least 1000000 of those where drisco dying with severe mom attrition. i visited

6:22 pm
a problem. there's no doubt about the major issues involved, which is the slowness of checks, the, the regulations which stop various products from being imported from the u. k. businesses having a really difficult time, especially in the relative christmas and getting their product, sir on really a major issues. but that the general consensus i know lot is that though they just want things smoothed out. but no. what we're hearing from david frost is, is, is explicit. he talks about the good friday agreement. you explained that in, in your intro. and he said that's a look really that the balance between communities is the main feature of the good friday agreement. but that's been shredded the serious turbulence. he said, he said that really this, this protocol was now discriminating against one part of the committee. and that is basically the protestant loyalists unionists community which is debt against this because they see this has been really stripping away really it's sense of belonging
6:23 pm
to the u. k. and so he wants basically to tackle it in a very big way by saying, look, we have to have international arbitration over anything that, that, that, that this, but spells out in terms of trade, not the european court of justice. now this is, this is european court of justice is basically the ultimate arbitrator on of this, this, this international law. and he is talking how about that going away and having international tribunal. not only that, he wants basically to actually go down a road, possibly of triggering what's known as article 16, which means that he can then unilaterally the u. k. government can unilaterally go against this agreement, do what it wants. it thinks but expects a real fights over this, the supposed to be negotiations, but this is really going to be a pretty bitter battle between the european union and the u. k. it potentially is
6:24 pm
