2 security pushes martian isolation. a notch has to be cheap so much more needs to be john and i think people have to be at concord solutions my name is a mcclatchy not an election to. this is the day of the news asia coming up talks i mean terrorism while the us and taliban discuss to patrol the dog off consequence also spend a lot of on attacks in 2 cities in afghanistan how credible are these talks and is the taliban in complete control also coming up. university and school students in hong kong to join pro-democracy rallies a day off to fight and clashes between police and protesters police say more than 50 was arrested over the weekend but what happens to protesters in police custody
6:31 pm
one activist tells us. our british manager welcome to deduct the news asia it's good to have you with us. a 9th round of talks between u.s. and taliban representatives has ended in doha without a substantial agreement but the u.s. side say they are caught at the threshold of an agreement that could see the u.s. pullout from the country the final details are still unclear but what is clear is that the taliban on how to get out waiting for the day over the weekend they attack the cities of condos and. in the north of the country a can do is has already been attacked twice before in the last 4 years so what is the taliban game plan deborah correspondence muscle. but that the taliban spokesman so hampshire again in doha. we have been here.
6:32 pm
in. this well you heard in the division who knew he didn't read. the wrong i just consider the youths zaki used to not follow him and be present in the sense that so that's the mean it's a good sign incidental question are you going to. assume. anything to get a little. of this in the intensive. well joining us for more correspondence and operators man has been following the many rounds of talks in doha under welcome now the by the americans we're talking to the valid one in the how you had the taliban attack in 2 cities over the weekend in afghanistan is the taliban essentially controlling the narrative in doha from of going to i think that
6:33 pm
trying to very much but what you must keep in mind is afghanistan was the world's deadliest conflict in 2018 and chances are that it will remain the word's deadliest conflict in 2902 because despite the peace talks or framework agreement talks in doha the fighting hasn't stopped afghanistan is still essentially a country at war and yes we have seen the taliban attacking. over the weekend fighting is still ongoing in other parts of the country too there is no clear front line so civilians get caught in the cross-fire time and again with taliban attacking villages and cities but also you know rates by u.s. forces and afghan forces at the same time so it's really a country at war essentially a but it's also you have a situation in which you have 2 parallel tracks you have talks going on in doha and then you have this violence on the ground clearly both sides have a lack of trust when it comes to each other in this environment whatever deal is
6:34 pm
agreed in-door have any words agreed what the chances the elements offered will be implemented. i think that's 2 separate things essentially because what we have seen at the moment is talks between the taliban and the united states about on the one hand troop withdrawal that is the main taliban dumont and on the other hand a break with al qaeda and other elements of terror in afghanistan that is the main u.s. the monster that they can pull out troops in faces whatever comes up to comprehensive cease fire in traffic and dialogue the other 2 elements those still have to start those still have to be implemented and if everybody will be on board whether there will be disgruntled members of the taliban then maybe joining you know the afghan version of the islamic state that remains to be seen it doesn't mean that in the case of the framework agreement between the u.s. and the taliban that we will see f.
6:35 pm
can plea in peace blossom you know the very next day so essentially what you're saying is of the framework agreement that is under discussion in doha is essentially something that serves more the u.s. interest and the fall of on interest than the of i would say yes because the americans especially president trump have a very keen interest on pulling troops out you know he's also campaigning he wants reelection and if he manages to pull troops out of course that would be very rare way received in the united states whether this is a good or a bad thing for the people of afghanistan it's an entirely different story because what we need to see is really intra f can dialogue we need to see the f. can government and the political elite opposition forces sit down with the taliban because that is where a peace deal lies and sundra do you think very briefly that the of gun government if it does get involved in the bogs at some point there could be some agreement down the line with the part about well obviously the draft agreement which is on
6:36 pm
the table we don't know the it's was shown to the afghan president in the meantime and he's now considering how to proceed and i think in the end it would be for the sake of the afghan people a good move if he would agree and if the taliban would agree to an interest in dialogue because that's what is needed to bring peace to afghanistan under bridges one thanks very much for that i'm sure we'll be speaking sean about these talks. on to hong kong now where hundreds of school and university students return from summer break to hold rallies and pro-democracy demonstrations on monday these follow another weekend of violent protests which saw when he's crushing the protesters and making arrests when his actions over the past 3 months have been criticized by pro-democracy activists as violent and brutal and many have taken it upon themselves to monitor law enforcement offices. he's a familiar face among people him democratic lawmaker luncheon taking notes this
6:37 pm
protest isn't authorized police have made clear anyone taking part faces arrest. but still he's here another defined figure in the crowd i know a lot of weeks of violence of shouted his faith in the police he's come here not to make noise but to act as a witness to what he says the nightly injustices i think it's my duty to monitor the law enforcement of the police force and if they try to. leave and they skew to have to address me then i could only defend myself in the court. he knows all too well the risks he's taking on friday 3 of his fellow lawmakers were arrested for that alleged role in protests. then there's the physical risk was back in july protesters were attacked by a gang of men at the u.n. on the train station and i am

6:39 pm
complex coming and he's on the move. during the week this is his office but today he can only stand back and watch as the chaos unfolds far from the front lines but close enough to witness as molotov cocktails thrown from one side take ass and water cannon on the other he regularly posts updates on his social media using his platform to edge tens of thousands of followers to stay safe knowing that for some it will be futile another night of violence just beginning. johnson young is a pro-democracy activist and he joins me now. from hong kong johnson fog is a time you were your son forced to drive and after your use you spoke about the head i suppose the protest in some front of the hands of the police what did you experience one in custody. so there are some for abuse is
