taiwanese media report that us how speaker nancy pelosi will visit the island during her trip to asia the spiked warning from china and today humanities just to amuse understanding when use calculation away from me at any lation stock warning from the head of the united nations act talks on nuclear nonproliferation in new york. ah, i'm helen mohammed walked into the program on chi deleda. i'm also watery, has been killed in a drone strike in the afghan capsule cobble u. s. president joe biden maybe announcement a short time ago. although ari allegedly kelly carried out a key role in planning the 911 terrorist attacks came with the us alongside osama bin laden. and this comes a year after us forces pulled out of afghanistan,
5:02 am
where you see when we did a dena. here's the u. s. president joe biden speaking earlier ourselves community located as our here year. only this year it moved to downtown kabul to reunite with members of his immediate family. after carefully considered a clear and convincing evidence of his location, i authorized a precision strike that would remove him from the battlefield once and for all. this measure was carefully plan, rigorously minimize the risk of harm rather civilians. and one week ago or to revise the conditions were optimal. i gave the final approval to go get it. and the mission was a success. none of his family members were hurt and there were no civilian casualties. well, it's all of on has responded on twitter in the last few hours saying they are all mc edward of of gun is don strongly condemned this attack on any pretext,
5:03 am
and calls it a clear violation of international principles and the doha agreement with one of them joined by roger shanahan, he is a middle east security expert at the low. we institute in sydney, australia, it's good to have you with us here and dw news 1st thing, what is your reaction to the us strike and how the taliban has responded? yes, so it's very interesting. i think double this, we get, we know that our washington has been looking to target al qaeda at the most interesting thing about this, i think is the fact that he was found and killed in downtown cobble, which is not very good news for the, for the taliban because it was ashamed that he was not somewhere in the hinterland, but the fact that he was able to live in the middle of cobble is could, is of concern for cheap, scary issues in afghanistan. and you served in afghanistan with the australian
5:04 am
military. how surprised were you to find out that he was located in cobble yeah, listen, i think that was i. yeah. not any in cobble, but from what be no. i will to do residential area in cobble. you kind of been there without the knowledge and the imprimatur of the taliban themselves, which would be a yeah, a highly risky venture. you would have thought on the part of the taliban. the u. s . got intelligence earlier in the year and whited until the conditions were optimum to do that. but personally, and i think most people who are looking at this issue find it quite disturbing that he was killed in downtown cobble. and how much of a blow is this for al qaeda and obviously potentially other odd groups operating in afghanistan? well, it probably shows you there's probably 2 issues around this. first of all just shows you that at the u. s. as bane,
5:05 am
i had him on the target list for the best part of 2 decades and it finally comes to pass it. they got the person though a tagging so just shy she that evening democracies with changes of administrations in the u. s. am patience is still a feature of the counterterrorism landscape. i think the other issue is organizations like islamic state, like al qaeda. they understand that the leadership is a high priority target for washington and say they will bay i succession plan that has been put in place. well before this in the case that at the me was killed, ill take some time for that become public. i shoot, but those probably the, the 2 issues. we shouldn't assume that this will. i'm upset, al qaeda's operational rhythm too much. but at the same time, it seems pretty clear message to all those kind of terrorist groups that washington ah, if it takes 20 years, it takes 20 years before they'll target the ladyship. so are we likely to see more
5:06 am
drone strength in afghanistan despite the taliban voicing against it? well, i think guy though, be a judicious use of trying strikes. oh, how to codes really do give us the ability to do that against islamic state targets . the u. s. says that the taliban brushed it in terms of al qaeda targets. i think if there is a similarly high value target, al qaeda target in afghanistan will say that in the future they will certainly bay those against his lemming style targets. or when i have the opportunity so this probably might be the last but against al qaeda targets probably used more judiciously, i would argue, or just shanahan at the know institute in sydney. thank you very much for your time . my pleasure. how top white house official is wanting tyna not to manufacture a crisis over a possible visit to ty, one by us. house speaker, nancy pelosi,
5:07 am

night. probably 1020 p. m. and she is expected to stay here overnight and meet with taiwan president. you weren't on wednesday. so it probably also mid some activities who are spoken about china's human right. hybrid. we have to also understand that the talent is government declined to comment on pillows. the visit, instead of confirming pillows this be the to taiwan. that was foreign ministry, told media that there would be an important guest visit in taiwan without giving any further information. and how concerned are taiwanese residents about this potential visits, and then the response coming from mainland china as many international experts say it is very risky, let pillows these visiting, tie one, and also the response from china be concerned. it's interesting to note that people here in taiwan actually expressed mixed views about pillows this read it well. most
5:09 am
of them will come pelosi to taiwan and think and think of be that could be helpful for relation between taylor in the us. they also worried that china would punish taiwan with unreasonable actions. according to some experts i've talked to chinese response to palo, this be the to tie one could be unprecedented. as the chinese ministry previously said, you will not sit idly by if pelosi be this taiwan. but experts also say military conflict is unlikely to happen, actually for taiwan is people they are very used to the threat from b gene. and the warning of serious consequences from china doesn't really seem like a concern for locals. what's interesting is that most of time, when is people here actually care more about domestic political issue lately? relo lynn pillows, this possible visit. cool. thank you. zachary lee in taipei who are now well, let's take
