a new poll i and many others respected the result of the 2016 referendum for a very long time. but there eventually comes a point and we are very far past it now. when circumstances are so changed the only proper way to proceed in such circumstances is to consult the people again in a referendum with a credible option to leave and remain on the ballot paper as labor have committed to do more on all of this now from london we're trying to help. opponents of the government have called it a strong and important legal judgment the government itself in a tweet 10 downing street saying it was disappointing but this unanimous decision by scotland's highest court finds that boris johnson's decision to prorogue will suspend parliament was indeed illegal motivated it says and indeed in the advice he

. talk to our jazeera starts right now. only. you can rule the loop. in a string of twitter messages posted on saturday u.s. president donald trump announced these council meetings planned with the taliban leadership and afghanistan's president at camp david he blames a taliban attack in kabul last week in which an american soldier was amongst those killed. that announcement came to criticism him from his own republican party hashtags such as taliban try to trump the kind trending. the peace talks started
almost a year ago in concert aiming to end the 18 year old war in afghanistan on monday trump said they were dead. dead dead dead dead ross i'm concerned that that they thought that that it killed people in order to put themselves in a little better negotiating position when they did that they killed 12 people what happened to be a great american soldier it wonderful young man from puerto rico families from puerto rico. you can't do that can't do that with me now dead dead as far as i'm concerned and we've head. that the alabang hotter in the last 4 days that they've been it over 10 years that's the way it is the president's move surprised the taliban's leaders of the 9 months of negotiations in doha he seemed to most of the differences with the united states had been result of the us special representative for afghan but conciliation zalmay khalilzad even said a peace agreement had been finalized in principle. one of the most important points
the gradual withdrawal of the 14. 1000 american soldiers. to the u.s. quick to the negotiating table can peace be achieved in afghanistan and if so what would it take. the taliban's political spokesman to do so hail shaheen talks to al-jazeera. come. and we have here with with us in the studio today mr muhammad in the spokesman for the political office of taliban and the member of the negotiating team here in doha thank you for being with us thank you very much let me start with the negotiations that the president donald trump announced. the end of it did that come as a surprise to you. yes it was. it was astonishing for us. because we had
a lady concluded the peace agreement with american and you negotiation team. and we had to do the talks for almost one year and in the end we concluded a peace agreement and also we concluded the dian exists and implementation framework of the peace agreement then both heads up that it was team they initialed the copies one copy of that was given to the qatari side and one copy. we got the word copy and one american team. and after that. that chief of the political office and d.p.i. meter of they slam make a minute of afghanistan for political appears and he's a delegation had a meeting with dr khalilzad and general scott miller they were happy with.
a peace agreement and they talked about that about the 70 of signing the peace agreement amidst that that preach was a way to start uprising in a store stitching for us so the last thing you heard from mr them i said is that and general scott miller the chief commander of u.s. troops and nato troops in afghanistan was about actually the ceremony for signing the agreement and not the stoppage of the negotiations is that correct. no there was no hint no sign only they. talked during that meeting about the ceremony of signing the. signing the agreement to an invitation to be extended to 40 minute states of about 2 or $24.00 a countries of the world and also they
talked about their communication channel which was. also part of the agreement and we had appointed from our side people for the communication channel in order to facilitate implementation of they came into that was discussed during that meeting that was the last meeting that our. chief of the political office. with scott miller and dr after that that meeting which i mentioned there was another meeting with him and that meeting that they were. no sign. no hint about what was mentioned in their trips that was really really surprising for us so when was that meeting what was it on saturday for example. yeah. you really know exactly.
the date but it was after. meeting and which they discussed the communication channel and also the about the ceremony they had that another meeting so it was the topic was. similar topics some addition but similar topics so during these 2 meeting have you ever confirmed actually that you are going to see president trump on cam david's on sunday as per the tweets of i president trump himself did you ever confirm that you're going on sunday yes it was a rotation was given by doctors to us. and we we discussed this. in the political office and incomplete accepted that invitation and we can read our message or product article exactly that we accept that it will take
and we will go to visit or the united states. that after the. signing ceremony of the peace agreement. because the side they said of many of the peace agreement will create a lot more spirit that it will be you know reduction in weiland and will be a good atmosphere inside up when it's done because of the after the signing of the ceremony that actually implementation of the peace agreement will start and it will it will create a canoe so it must be have to go there and that be we can read that message to him that would be a proper time. so in his tweet president trump claimed that the beating between you and president chum or. should the world on sunday i'm asking here about the signing of the agreement ceremony that was supposed to be here in doha was in the
same day well that sunday as well or a different they were it wasn't agreed upon the expected date of the ceremony was to be fixed. by all sites and in the same ceremonies to be held. it was decided to be held here in doha. it was to be held here in doha in the presence of international witnesses and the presence of media that was decided that was not there that it will be signed david. it was decided to that we knew was but the date was not fixed but it was generally. decided that it will be held in during one week with in one week. so in this case do you consider the tweets by
president trump as incorrect when he claimed that the meeting was should was on sunday yes they give us so this is 2 different things one is. his idea in we're titian that we accept it and that is the date. that we had. they gave us the year to do it but we had our own week that it is appropriate to the year after the signing of the. city money for. mentor because of before that we did not see speired suicide being nor see spiders means that radio will be x.x. from each sites i've they had x. i want to treat. that italy it by attacking some parts but after the. beginning of implementation up the peace agreement
so all these things will stop and that would create you are most of your reporter visiting the united states that was our we point i do we can with that our we point to him to dr lisa so according to your statements to mr kerry the agreement was ready for signature by the president of u.s. a and for the ceremony for signing the agreement but we don't know a lot about the agreement can you tell us more information about that what what you actually agreed upon there are some mom main points and main parts of peace agreement when withdrawal of all forces from abroad it's not sick and not allowing anyone to use the side of a one side against the united states its allies. to begin intra of on negotiations for that since spider
will be an item of agenda of discussion during intra afghan negotiations that were 4 words up the peace agreement so according to what you're saying now the ceasefire was never part of the agreement no that was not part of. negotiation with the american side we had 2 topics or 2 parts with the americans one to talk with them about ending occupation about one stone or withdrawal of foreign forces probably understand a 2nd obligation not allowing anyone to use the side of a wider stand against the united states and its allies that was 2 main parts that we discussed with the american side that i mean in 2 parts we were to
discuss with them with the afghans and the really the americans agree to that was droll without a ceasefire the american you get it with withdrawal and we agreed that during the era drawl we will not attack them it was part of that and they will not attack us and we will not attack them we will give them a safe passage to offer dollars from afghanistan so that was no question of would be about that doesn't seem a bit strange at least for the people that you agree to a cease fire with the americans and you were prepared to do the you agreed to stop killing the americans by that and agreed to something similar to the afghani people you work your fellow citizens. how can you explain that that is part of the interrupt.
