2:31 pm
it's good to have you with us it's been called the united states wall the war. vetting estimates but the cost of the war between nine hundred thirty two billion u.s. dollars and two trillion dollars more than thirty eight thousand civilians have been killed there are other statistics as well they mostly speak of death but is the u.s. close to ending all that for itself in talks with. it appears a so-called agreement in principle has been reached between both sides. of. the platform. and a commitment that u.s.
2:32 pm
forces will pull out of the country but it's the. talks table that. speak to them still the president. made his position. my yes our commitment is to provide peace and to prevent any possible disaster but there are values that are not disputable such as national unity that national sovereignty territorial integrity and a strong central government. that. the put. i call on the taliban not to be a part of the evil plans of foreigners. to accept the demands of afghans. and to start the talks seriously with the afghan government and afghanistan so will the taliban and turn to talks with the afghan government the answer to that question will impact the lives of some sixty percent of our population that's under
2:33 pm
the age of twenty five. nomo sign us my name is hussein i am nineteen years old and i work at a hairdressing salon in kabul. but i want peace with the taliban so that our country can become stable. when there is peace people can go about their business girls can go to school and boys can style their hair any way they like. it and. my name is maram at e.a. and sixteen years old and i play piano at the afghan national music institute. it would be great if the government and the taliban reached a peace deal and. if that happens everyone should still have access to music and rights to be upheld.
2:34 pm
that shift so that many miss cusser start i'm seventeen and i'm on afghanistan's movie time national youth team and that was this up and the women have achieved so much in sports i'm optimistic i hope the taliban will accept these achievements. my name is soltan. i'm eighteen years old and i'm an afghan model. here that if the taliban come we won't be able to hold our fashion shows in kabul or anywhere i hate the taliban because of their violence fighting atrocities and their vision of. joining me for more from kabul is as on conning a researcher with the organization of the amazon and this network must hold so full from. departments as on i'd like to come to you first how do young people who are
2:35 pm
not gonna stand feel about a possible deal between the taliban and the united states thank you so much for giving this opportunity as our young afghan. and as grow up and leave it at war i believe every afghans no matter from we are they are our blood to which political or economic groups they are the lives that they're. asking for a peaceful afghanistan. any. attempts even it's a small one that support afghans chill achieved its goals is it highly welcomed by afghans including afghan young generation. so for what happened between the taliban and the u.s. set unfortunately is that going to what's likely cynthia so i think. do
2:36 pm
afghans believe these was an improvement i mean right talks between the u.s. and the taliban it is said to achieve that unfortunately the afghans voice was not on the table. and there are any and i voiced that as on let me just bring in a muscled from a bit of news of gun department and most of the you probably heard what ehsaan is saying and you've also written a lot about these talks of your voting to inform of the situation in afghanistan as well as a long time does it look likely that the interests of the afghan people really be addressed in any possible deal between the u.s. and the taliban. son was very right to point point out that indy's talks and people who are not represented we have to remember that the current round of talks is between the americans and they're both trying to get something for not full of coniston the taliban continue to refuse to talk to the afghan government which will represent afghanistan and scope people in these talks so whatever comes
2:37 pm
from these talks which is still in their first phases whatever comes of it will be a deal between the united states and taliban the taliban will have to assure the united says that their soil will be going somewhere not used to be not used against americans but guarin rise and mechanisms for this do not exist or does not read and see what the final agreement eventually looks like if i can just ask your at the end as you're thirty two years of age and you've already alluded to others most of your life you have seen of goddess on a wall what does of god is the need for peace very briefly possible. i think. it's really important a national consensus should be and everyone should be agree on how we can it how to deal with the taleban and just. sort of elected what does mean again the talks we
2:38 pm
did between the taliban and the us i think so far what happened to between those two parties i felt the audit and the departure in the conflict the taliban. acting like a government and the us us also disturbed him as a government which i think increases giving international legitimacy to the taliban which are not the government of the father son and lording the afghan government actually you put the afghan police to afghan government which legit nationally and i think it's really important for afghans including young to be involved in all the process and the talks should not be really have to understand people have to know the truth of what are have i think about the effect and they have to to be involved in the at and they have to be monitoring everything and that why should be on the table privatized right now and hopefully that happens more going into the

a mode of transport these rolling works of sparkle with chrome and covered with flamboyant paint jobs many filipinos consider them a national treasure. looking at a jeepney design is like watching a canvas at an art studio designer. jeepneys might be a breath of fresh air to the monday mini bus but the reality is this. big polluters . now new clean air laws are set to force most older vehicles off the road. that's bad news for g.p. workshops like this and the artists who work here. all the producers here in san pablo are gone we're the only ones left. this has been.
