a heavy security presence to prevent that but the taliban has made large gains in much of the role real afghanistan which could result in a low turnout that baena akbari works as a journalist in northern conducing province which is changed hands between government and taliban control several times and. people are getting ready to move to other places we saw the same situation at the last election in the 4 with ski it only about a 3rd of people will vote she is one of only a few women working in media in this part of afghanistan and as the manager of a local radio station has faced death threats from the taliban still she is determined to go on with her work and with her right to vote and to be able to even if the taliban gets control of could us to use my right to vote because my one vote can determine our future i want to be a role model for my afghan sisters. still exerting

so this sense an important message to the syrian people that change is possible have you vesey all the names with regard to human rights make sure there's no one with blood on their hands and given the tentacles of the assad spice this make sure there's no members of the intelligence community hidden in his communities and let's be. clear i'm on this we want to be have done is to is to work on the assumption that the government is responsible for their 50 that they have nominated the opposition is responsible for the 50 that they have nominated and then we have a middle 3rd that the u.n. them has been working on together with the parties so of course this is a compromise can you guarantee to us after all the time of the assads in power since $970.00 just sharm elections that the end of this whatever constitution they come up with will be a properly democratic constitution and there will be as that resolution says free
and fair elections i think what i can guarantee is that the verdict of the constitution will be based on the aspirations of the syrian people you know this is syrians sitting together for the 1st time update on the half years of working on their own constitution and i see rightly pointed out the security council has risen and. pursuant to the new constitution there should be free and fair elections where all syrians should participate including their spur on the un supervision so this is my mandate i've already of course discussed this both with the government and with the opposition s.n.c. i have of course i'm elected expert all ready berthing on this for me of preparing ourselves and of course preparing hopefully then the syrian parties can i guarantee that this will take place no but as the right to stated on this is part of my
mandate it's very clear to stamp that stated and it's also international consensus that's it's 1st take place. a major border crossing between iraq and syria is due to be reopened on monday they are crossing has been closed since 2012 to all but government or military traffic the trade route has been seized and controlled by various groups over the past 70 years including syrian rebels and i saw a crossing will now reopened for trade and travel pakistan's prime minister has used his speech at the un general assembly to deliver an extraordinary attack on india's crackdown in indian administered kashmir imran khan want of a bloodbath in the disputed region last month india revoked the semi autonomous status of kashmir a territory under its control in his speech earlier india's prime minister made no mention of kashmir journal reports from the united nations as a nod to the many many never believe the u.n. general assembly was drawing to a close in new york when suddenly it burst grimly back into life pakistan's prime
minister decried india's decision to revoke self rule in majority muslim populated indian administered kashmir it was part of a policy he said of hindu nationalism and ethnic cleansing what is going to happen when the curfew is lifted will be a bloodbath the people will come out then 100000 troops there they haven't come do as he says he's done this do for the prosperity of this is supposed to be for the development of these 900000 troops one of they're going to do well when the time out they'll be a bloodbath. in his speech accused india's prime minister narendra modi of fascism of pursuing an ideology of hate and racial purity drawn from hitler and mussolini in the 1930 s. he said the un must intervene to avoid conflict between 2 nuclear armed neighbors

challenges not for any single country but for the entire world and humanity the lack of unanimity among us on the issue of terrorism dense those very principles that are the basis of the creation of the u.n. and that is why for the sake of humanity i firmly believe that it's absolutely imperative that the world unites against terrorism oh well. as both leaders spoke a block away from the u.n. building anti modi protesters demanded the world take action 55 days of court feel no food no house no madison and they can't go out it's not here we are here to protest we want to know the but let the word know what's happening there and nobody's doing anything. and on the ground in srinagar kashmiris under strict security controls and with indian troops keeping watch made their voices go

my it is our longlasting tradition and culture. is our family centered lifestyle. my ethiopia is our earth and this is. we are definitely part of the reform process the reason i'm sitting right here is part of the reform process. the reason i've actually i mean. to really be gauged and be part of this conversation is part of the reform.
you have always been known for the incidents of the past where we had an unfortunate time in. where we lost millions and that has been stuck and people head and we have not done enough to change that these snares for presentations are our approach needed to change them brain now and this is the moment and right heart of the. voting in that tourism that i like you tell you started your. reaction i'm not going to open their minds. so i think to me or not so for
a bit of truth then what do you know. vision we are going to win and not need we don't want it. if we want to is a good to us to come and visit then we need to build our infrastructure and where are these infrastructures we need to build these conversation happening for real this time around within this period of time how do we need these sites accessible they're not. so today we are scavenger hunting to look for sites. not just as a tourist attraction but also coming to development and coming to the impeachment and learning about history and we're also trying to see if that if we were going to do this and if people were going to come and find sites how would how easy would it . i think had just as huge potential in terms of his heritage
to develop and to rebuild to revitalize the urban communities which is crucial because we are going through repetitions for mission and during this period we're just about to lose our own identity because it's our own tradition and i could take share there is a mirror in the reflection of ourselves in our past. i mean finding these buildings is a challenge so it turned out that the mistake they make about the heritage buildings here. g.p.s. location doesn't really match with the with the engine so that should that's one reason we want to do the resource my thing then we won't have to do this you know you won't have to go out to a scavenger hunt to see how do you think we're going to pay for that and i for one follow up and work and it doesn't measure. getting up.
and. i'm going to check all cash. they could take a bigger place this and that the only. safe orderly. chipotle in the valley has out that's one of those. standards you can buy. that even and i will not that you don't possess the. kind of that said i don't have a horse and i look says that's going to lead we need to buy and they're. going to both of you will still be able jesus. to get
a month or. 7 beautiful not because there was. you know what i don't know but still. a little. oh that's just kind of a little. mo. so the move was made out of libya. such as he is a mage soon i've never thought only of. you think of it as your list. of. ok you. did it with you in getting most of the old
days. they. should really diminish your money to me is it going to be national just not is the domain decision was intended to make oh did the land now do just an ocean or she. was happy that it didn't i guess. there's so much history and so much culture that we hop that we have not preserved and we have not used. we're losing them we're losing them in the process of modernization and the process of growth and that's it doesn't have to be that way we can always a grow that we can always go on along side of protecting our history and really really using it for something much more than what it was originally designed for. as was which which you're going the. way but you know the rest of the double plymouth within which. begins to muck up the.
music in the bush is you going to get a better name than now that we're going to come in again and it would be just for the 3 major averages are the 2 region. our stories have never been told by us dalton think you took an irishman has never been done completely by you to bent's themselves it was always has been someone else telling our stories telling our cultures telling our history telling our lifestyle. for us is about to clearly taking on the space and scene that really need to tell our story and we need to make sure it's still a threat because it's ours. and. and.
i grew up with 2 journalists in the house my parents so information was the news to me stuff like favorite body and they were talking about it so i grew up in a space where you know. you counts not but before. because my mom was active and highlighting muslim moments rights that i was being taught and communicated while i was growing up by the time i was a teenager i really knew how to balance it out and know that when to call off something to be something to address this is really happening you know from a very gender perspective and i need to address it versus this is just that and out of authentic you know knowing enough understanding how. they don't engender
dynamics works. my biggest challenge is the resistance to the transformation of we are agreed through a transformation and there is that painful year where the status quo the confort zone is going to go away so say that to you we're not doing business as usual we're going to change because we're going to get better that's that's that why they need to have this conversation about the because. productive to not. going to get. the simple answer yes we would be happy if you could promote us. coming to office the 1st space they tried to explore and would simply understand
how things have worked before. and it was very. quick for me to recognize that especially with the private sector how to talk and to recognize that a lot of was being done but nothing was coming out as fruitful and consult a move again to have to know. which part of our foreign as a country is a truism is going to be an economy current and it's going to have to bring impact so i took a lot of actions around that that a lot of farcical interests were not very happy about and do really soul the newbie in the house asking this question doesn't come off as. a nice. gesture you know people would say is it because you're a woman is that because of your new. into the government system and if i look at it
from that perspective i would start taking it very personally i see this not so much about. what they are in prison right now and that's the transformation. i take from that perspective and. i believe that by their was me be here as a woman are not this is agenda would have been a fed resistance no want to. give up to not come in we didn't describe any meeting and i got a bit in the muck out of. just the minute you might want to get the game and just let me know then it makes economy. pretty much a very busy like. one of those that i'm in the taking a break today but it's pretty. crazy schedule.
