welcome to the euro max you just chat. a good minute story. with exclusive inside. the must see concerning barclays culture you're a. place to be curious minds. do it yourself networkers. so subscribe don't miss out. this is the news asia coming up talks m e 10 prism while the u.s. and saudi bond discuss 2 patrols and bought off gone soko also spent 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 in clashes between police and protesters police say more than 50 was arrested over the weekend but what happens to protesters in police custody one activist tells us. i'm going to welcome to do that. 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 hanging around waiting for the day over the weekend they attack the cities of condos and. in the north of the country can do as has already been attacked twice before in the last 4 years so what is the taliban game plan the
double correspondent. for that the taliban spokesman so henshaw again in doha. with the. insurer. this friday we are the division who knew who the who the we and we are still. in the room i just consider the youths zaki used to. be really the sort of the finest so that's the main it's a good size vessel question. too. is there when there's a home for the disabled i think libby will. understand the importance. well joining us for more is due to a correspondence under appeared as man has been following the many rounds of talks in doha under welcome now the while the americans were talking to the valid one in
doha you had the taliban attack and do cities over the weekend in afghanistan is the taliban essentially controlling the narrative in doha from afghanistan i think they're trying to very much but what you must keep in mind is afghanistan was the was deadliest conflict in 2018 and chances are that it will remain the words debt is 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 the. 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 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 agreed in-door have in their words agreed what the chances the elements of it 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 of to a comprehensive cease fire in traffic and dialogue the other 2 elements though is 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 f.
conversion of 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 if can play if peace blossomed you know the very next day so essentially what you're saying is that the framework agreement that is under discussion and is essentially something that serves more the u.s. interest and the taliban 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 will be their way received and the united states whether this is a good or a bad thing for the people of afghanistan is an entirely different story because what we need to see is really intra f. can dialogue we need to see the f.n. government and the political elite opposition forces sit down with the taliban because that is where a peace deal lice summer or 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 phone about well obviously the draft agreement which is on the table we don't know the details 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 to tell you 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. going 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 but so police clashing with protesters and making arrests when these 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 protest isn't authorized police have made clear anyone taking pot faces arrest. but still his head another defined chica in the crowd i'm no longer weeks of violence of shots of his faith in the paintings 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 call the to the law enforcement of the police force and if they try to. weaken it and they skew to a bit to i best 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. in a train station and i was he was among the 1st on the scene live stream for he saw us ish media was the only way i was in the was was he finally was was. he was left with a fractured wrist and a cut to his face he says police failed to stop the attack oh yes the way the ideal the best by the police or attacked by the king's terrorists again. it is not the matter i have to concern any boy. to get every phone call the people
his choice. oh it's best to fight for democracy all phone call and. if a little. it's not long before reports of clashes outside the government complex coming and he's on the. during the week this is off this it's a day he can only stand back and watch as the chaos unfolds far from the front lines that close enough to witness as molotov cocktails thrown from one side take assem with a cannon on the other he regularly posts updates on his social media using his platform to add tens of thousands of front of us 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 but as far as i don't have time you were your son for us to drive and after your lose you spoke
about the hospital protest and so for the hands of the police what did you experience while in custody. so there are so for abuses several categories if he says 1st of all the old these were very well the abusing people they were swearing at people with eating in the detention center and secondly people were locked out in a car that was transformed into a detentions and it was life verity through decrease ousia as people were not allowed to lie on floors there is no place for people to sleep so people have to live on the 4th just to take a west and we were locked up for almost 47 hours 48 hours and also there were intimidations to our family members 2 people went to cannes to their home to a house search and. the scariest people including my family men. what is the thing behind this moment of detention. so that tension i was arrested for social
times and this esteemed most high conditions that i have every effort experienced and i think the reason is the police want to intimidate people and used as how rosman is to deter passive haitian people actually in my case is not the worst i heard about such of the use and special special rosman inside intentions there are also reports saying detainees were beaten by police when they were 15 detentions and so now it is not just how osman the police are folly think their political and they are up using the rights of the people to deter press adaptation what does that. about 3 of the we the government does not know of these protests is it more often annoying or to problem for the government instead of a political one. it is still a political one because the government the 1st they want to calm down the
situations by using by using police to these people but now they found the fallen is not working so they ask a late and as a way to deter president patient down not taking then not thinking. that they are not making peace for their people and no they are not making concessions of the people and that's why they escalating violence they are arresting people out of a trendy we just received the poor and that possibly there are hundreds of west right now all together from june to now there are more than half and 100 s. already and people are still getting on west and how ross and been hired by the police. dalton young thank you very much for joining us from hong kong. and up for another weekend of undress in hong kong today medical workers a queen mary hospital. in solidarity with the pro-democracy protesters the leader of that.
