ministration officials say u.s. vice president mike pence for the announced clear actions to the lima group about restoring democracy and getting aid and to venezuela opposition is calling for the world to consider all options to resolve venezuela's crisis echoing comments from the white house that hint at a possible american military intervention u.s. backed efforts to bring food and medicine over the brazilian boy to have ended and violence forces loyal to him with a little fight on opposition supporters up to twenty five people may have been killed mohamed begins our coverage from pocket i'm on the brazilian side of the border. a second round of clashes between venezuelan migrants and venezuelan security forces in as many days calm was eventually restored but things didn't stay quiet for long. as pro-government venezuelan demonstrators converged on their side of this border with brazil. chanting their support for president nicolas maduro
10:51 pm
insisting like he does that they need no outside aid and don't really want to say we came to sing our national anthem to show how we respect the sovereignty of all people so others also need to respect our sovereignty we're not begging for anything. a short distance down the same road new allegiances were announced. as two soldiers who defected to brazil the night before declared their support for venezuelan opposition leader. and sent him into play as a venezuelan petry it's a few pain it pains me to see all the suffering people. at times the defectors were cheered even though there was little to be cheerful about it's almost sunset and as you can see behind me brazilian security forces are still blocking access to the brazilian side of the no man's land between brazil and venezuela for the past few hours the only vehicles we've seen coming through are ambulances. then shocking news
10:52 pm
a new albeit unconfirmed death toll from three days' worth of clashes between security forces and opposition supporters in and around the venezuelan town of santa ana but. at the moment we estimate there are twenty five people dead and eighty four injured and the thing is we don't control the hospital the military controls that the people they killed they put them in an equal and took them to a military base that's why we're not sure of the exact number of dead leaving these venezuelans to wonder just how much darker the coming days maybe mohammed. and parker dima on brazil's border with venezuela well let's go now to our correspondent on the he's joining us live from bowl with the weather live. me saying is beginning so what is the plan now for the opposition on a sound as they meet with their international back as. well in the first leg ations are arriving right as you can see behind me here
10:53 pm
for a minute and the center of the capital of columbia. your question was what's the plan nobody really knows at this point we spoke to a number of officials close to the venezuelan opposition and. are quite clear that they don't truly have anything close to a plan b. after they failed to get inside the country on saturday they were expecting a mass defection part of the military and that didn't happen they were also expecting a tsunami of these four demonstrate demonstrations on saturday and while they were allowed a lot of people it wasn't nearly as close to what was needed to manage to or were overwhelmed the security forces that. on the border so the question is what will be
10:54 pm
decided in this meeting that will start in roughly an hour we're probably hear about the possibility for more sanctions about the question is will that make a difference in the goal that the venison opposition has of toppling president nicolas maduro or not and the other thing that we're hearing is now that the many opposition members are openly talking about the possibility of a military intervention that's right alison's where you have the opposition to haunt why though are asking international backers to leave all options open and you have u.s. president donald trump saying that military intervention is not off the table or rather is on the table. and other opposition members in venezuela and also here and vocal have been not only talking about any of the talking explicitly about the possibility about demanding
10:55 pm
a military intervention and this is creating divisions among the international coalition that supports. the foreign ministers of colombia and she already said that that is not an option for damn also other countries that have recognized the way though as to me and the the administrator are also saying that dialogue is the only possibility to try and solve this crisis in. there besides the leading my group which is being the strongest. coalition of countries supporting wedo i actually has been fundamental in convincing the very start and opposition to try to move to declare a president there is another group of countries called the context point for venezuela it's made up. a european countries and
10:56 pm
a country that is also part of the lima group with mexico who decided not to come to this meeting here in bogota and this group is hoping to travel to a caracas and start a conversation with my daughter they are hoping to open a dialogue but they're saying that that dialogue needs to bring in the end to free elections in been this way on a sounder thank you very much for that for now that is honest. with the very latest live in both but i would of course be going back to him for any developments on the story let's move on to other news now and the u.s. special envoy. has arrived in qatar for talks with the afghan taliban is co-founder and political chief. was among several senior senior taliban members who attended the four day summit aimed at ending the seventeen year war. other's presence is seen as a significant boost for the discussions in a tweet. said arrived in the heart to meet with a more authoritative delegation and this could be
10:57 pm
a significant moment appreciate the hosting and pakistan and facilitating travel now the work begins in earnest stephanie decker has been following those talks and the she sent us the subject. the u.s. envoy tweeting that he had met with mullah baradar over lunch the first time the two men met and that the real work words now begin now this is a senior delegation here in boulevard are of course one of the founding members of the taliban difficult issues will be discussed one is a nationwide cease fire to a timetable for the withdrawal of those u.s. troops around fourteen thousand remain in afghanistan another thing trying to get the taliban to talk to the government something they've refused to do so far and last but not least the u.s. wants a taleban to ensure that afghanistan will not be used by groups like isis or al qaida to launch a retaliatory attacks or any kind of attack on the west now even recently the u.s. envoy is saying that you cannot solve
10:58 pm
a forty year conflict with one meeting even if that meeting last so as much as a week but we do expect there's been messages coming out from the taliban and from the americans that they are hopeful that this could achieve something when i have to wait and see what they manage to talk about it chief and implement over the next couple of days but that's the real question what is achieved here if anything can be implemented on the ground the afghan people want security they want safety they are of course skeptical what capacity the taliban will return the talks are about getting them into a political unity government it is difficult it is complicated but certainly there seems to be a glimmer of hope that they are perhaps coming the closest that they ever have to achieving some form of a deal. leaders of the european union and arab league have a great work more closely together and hold regular meetings off of the summit in egypt migration on the rest of the arab region security and trade with the focus of the red sea resort of sharm el sheikh egyptian president of the sea hailed the
