6:56 pm
well and that abrasion going to do that they hoped that the military would. it not allow is am i doing that or disobey president maduro are actually beginning to undermine their lead to the collapse of the measure a regime that hasn't. and i think now there certainly was a lot of disagreement on the border area and it certainly includes. that happen so you know the opposition really marked the only other. really yellow day there so bad so far her disappointment and deaths but what do you make of the reports that a number of military and security forces did abandon their policy after being tasked with denying aid to their fellow citizens and you know i think it's something like five military leaders have abandoned the border now. well the problem is that the ones who are hundred they're saying have the nerve now lay down
6:57 pm
their arms going to the other side you're going to go into a long that these are only other ranks you know this is obviously not a significant but what is needed it really is a tire unit or their offices to go over to the opposition this is what they the opposition were rather counting on and that hasn't happened so it's discipline has . as the main change and of course as i asked me how it's from the previous reports to. the government there are two million little pieces it's about evolution's in this way and of course the gangs the collective us this week seeing are lawrence themselves that they're not going to be not going to get ways eliseo. if the really the opposition is casting around and ask why joe has sat there he's calling on the international community to consider all options and what does that mean you know he is going to be meeting with us why is president mike pence in the gulf and bill
6:58 pm
with a what does all options maine doesn't mean possible military intervention from the u.s. . well who knows i mean i think that would be. a step further than has been really seriously considered so far although. the u.s. government and people like marco rubio the senator from florida to ensure foreign policy formulation of cap that option on the table. in order to try to show the major issues that the u.s. means business first as you see the new majority government no compunctions actually people i'm doing. whether this will now lead to some u.s. led military intervention is still remains to be seen it's possible there will appeal still believe a group is not a latin american countries. adopt some sort of multilateral action now
6:59 pm
perhaps not the u.s. but we'll have to see what humility is from today's meeting. or mr harding thank you very much for your time and your expertise on the subject we do appreciate it that is calling harding live in manchester thank you. let's move on to other news now and yemen's hokie rebels have delayed the partial withdrawal of their fighters from two ports they were supposed to be sunny and rough supports just outside how they there to comply with the u.n. broken down range with yemen's government in sweden last year the hope they say the government isn't holding up its end of the agreement. the afghan taliban is co-founder and political chief is and qatar for talks aimed at ending the seventeen year war. that is among several signatories of on members who meet the u.s. special piece on boy. over the next four days but all those presents a seems a significant boost for the discussions that's going out to our correspondent
7:00 pm
stephanie decker who is covering these talks for us and doha so as we mentioned stephanie a lot of hope around the gunny but other's presence at the talks but what are the issues that they're trying to work through this time. there's a couple of issues on the table and they will be difficult one of them is a nationwide cease fire and the other one is the withdrawal of u.s. troops the u.s. still has around fourteen thousand troops on the ground in afghanistan the other one is to get the taliban to talk to the afghan government that is something that hasn't happened as of yet they're not involved they're not in doha they haven't been involved in other talks and the last one is to ensure that afghanistan is it uses a staging ground for groups like eisel and al qaida so there are very complicated matters on the table i can tell you is very secretive trying to get confirmation whether they've started or not it's the taliban not commenting the americans not commenting the company's not commenting but we do know confirm from various sources
7:01 pm
that as you mentioned that is he had his presence i think significant it seems to be the most senior level of talks between the taliban and the americans since the conflict and there are words come.
