Fresh update on "ghani" discussed on The Breakdown with Shaun King

"Was week number. Seven of the series. I'm going to be doing it all year. We need to make sure that. We use the word accountability. With derek shaw there. This won't be justice. For george floyd if you know what the scales of justice are when you effectively lynch a man in broad daylight and kill this man in the middle of the street holding the person accountable. Who did it. That is part of the process of justice is not justice it is accountability but justice is him being convicted all of the officers being convicted the policies changing in the city the family being compensated and then minnesota doing something minneapolis doing something that they have not yet done making sure this never happens again and then the scales are more balanced but even then it's not justice justice of course would be george floyd being alive would be me and you probably not even knowing his name instead we have something that's far less than that so yes we're calling for justice yes that's okay but convicting derek chauvin is just a fraction of what justice means for this family and just as i've seen the the mother of dante writes say she'd said i don't even know what of justice is fully possible here a baby lost their dad. She lost her son. A brother lost his brother. You know what i'm saying. And the same is true of george floyd and so we're fighting for accountability here and all we can do at this. Point is hope that we get it and hope that the jury has fair-minded. Good people on it. I'll be watching. I'm going to actually be watching the closing arguments right now.

Is that a pretty historic threshold or at least potentially so You and the Afghan people through the Loya Jirga had made the decision now to release the final prisoners that the Taliban had been demanding and opening the the pathway to negotiations, which reportedly will start in the next couple of days. That's an extremely important threshold. To Cross. When that I know you addressed with great seriousness in conviction but also with difficulty giving the given the sacrifices that your people have made. In this conflict I know very well that you're a man who likes strategy and planning. How do you see this process now on folding from this point assuming that the the door is open now to negotiations.

Regarding the values. Aunt he at amateurs which would enable us to talk to the. And how do you? How do you do that discussion beginning in and developing? I for instance, I know it's as you said, it's a very high priority to establish a ceasefire. You how do you see that coming to be in how you see the negotiations themselves preceding? This is not that way discussion. It has been a TV discussion because they that states is been engaged. And that being. Dependent states. on the twenty ninth of February provided the framework. which simultaneously we drink liberation. Soap some of the shoes came to the United States that's significance of questions that I'm sure you'll be asking later. As the second set of questions that relates. To the willingness capability. and. Decide of Taliban's. ABRASIVE BRACELETS Solution. During the negotiations we are great find out until now. They've helped their views. To themselves. That main issue since studio since February, twenty nine. IS BEEN CONTINUATION OF CONFLICT Ed False five, hundred, seventy, nine. Military and civilian casualties, fatalities and casualties. So they sent the violence has been very high. The test is to be able to get a comprehensive ceasefire as soon as possible into be able to talk about a political framework. which would bring the participation of the Taliban with a one society. So far the Taliban have taken a pretty. pretty firm hardline view as as they've been. The little bit that they've said publicly about negotiations. Do expect that when the actual negotiators tonight, you have some great people on your side I know. I know many of them. You think the once the. The Afghan, the Afghan side, and the Taliban side sit together in a room that they will be able to have A. Serious productive discussion about this these many sensitive issues that you're going to have to work through. Psyches. Say That is immense skills in conflict resolution.

The radical story of Patty Hearst Sunday at nine eastern on CNN. The. Tonight off two decades of war in an exclusive interview, the Afghan president Ashraf Ghani tells me why he's making an unprecedented peace offer to the Taliban's Also ahead decades of war between Israel and the Palestinians. I told to the former speaker of the Israeli Knesset Avrom bird at a time when peace seems farther away than ever. Good evening, everyone And welcome to the program. I'm pristine on one pour in London at war for almost forty years since 1979 Soviet invasion and with United States fighting the last sixteen years, hundreds of thousands of civilians dead has the time for peace in Afghanistan. Finally arrived, President Ashraf Ghani tells me that it has he's reaching out to the Taliban with the best offer. They've had yet legitimization talks without preconditions everything on the table. But the Taleban is far from grasping the hand of reconciliation. It doesn't even recognize Ghandi's government. It says it will only speak with United States. But President Ghani tells me that it is time now for them to separate that posturing from reality. The president Ghani Welcome to the program from Kabul It's a pleasure to be with you. You have put everything on the table. Why are you doing it unwind now? The one of the food is because our society is a consensus. Now Our woman, all ethnic groups, all political parties, If converged on the need to seek peace equally, We have an international consensus that is supporting guess plus a vase important event. This happened the Muslim world. The colors Islamic scholars that will among are beginning to speak clearly on condemning suicide bombings, that type of violence that is not rooted in out Islamic culture and civilization. So we need to move forward in the other side to stop Trinity's You talk about consensus. And yes, of course the Afghan people in the region and you're international partners want peace, but they are very divided on whether you should be offering everything including re-examining the Constitution to a group. That seems to have the upper hand on the ground right now, controlling alert and active in the majority of the land. And also for women, especially who have historically been not considered equal by the Taliban and you of course wants call them terrorists. Terror is an activity, The Irish, the Good Friday accord. Was it reached with a group that poor nice people or a group that were engaged in destabilising? So the important issue is now Dole's one to separate themselves from international terrorist organizations and terrorist activities would need to be separated through this process. Secondly, I would woman. If emerged to speak for themselves to take great public positions, We have ten deputy ministers five-woman ambassadors team ministers. They are increasingly active. They are going to be engaged in every part of the peace process. Thirdly, I would question with respect You'll or assertion that are militarily dominant for the first time since the departure of the national talk. We are steadily moving. We have a four-year plan. We are offering this not out of some disparition but out of courage and conviction that the violence that has inflicted on our people, that type of violence that they resorting to is an indication of weakness, not strength, Okay, took kill innocent civilians is not an act of courage. I, I know you say that and of course it is not inactive courage to kill innocent. Civilians. However. The facts on the ground, according to a US militry report just recently said that your government only controls eighteen percent of the country's districts. That means the Taleban does have the upper hand right now. And furthermore, this group which calls itself I eat, I would. I would strongly disagree with that. I would strongly disagree with that. I've just had the briefing some again, from the US General Nicholson will disagree with that. This is not the fat. So what is the then how much do you control f consolidated? Day in effect, in terms of the number of of district it most, if he even if you go at a liberal classification at It's nine to twelve districts out of close to four hundred, They have not been able to take a single city. At a provincial capital or consolidate the key goals to overthrow the government or to create two separate geographies is not happen. Well, let me again come-back because the UN said that last year alone Afghan civilians suffered ten thousand casualties dead and wounded, and your capital has come under awful suicide bombing in the last several weeks. A hundred people killed by a a weaponized ambulance. Taleban breaching the most secure hotel in the capital, the Intercontinental. But more importantly, I want to ask you to respond to their response. This is what they have said, And I say that they call themselves the Islamic Emirate so that cobble process and other such efforts seek surrender from the Islamic Emirate at a time when the Islamic Emirate is without a doubt a force that has defeated and international arrogant power like him. America with all its allies and tools at disposal should do you believe such a proposal is logical. That's their view of your offer, any encouragement by Americans to talk to you. They don't even want to talk to you the government when certain the But let's separate posturing from the realities. Every group that is dedicated to violence is going to exaggerate the tone importance in its posture. The question is directed to the people of Afghanistan when a group is so desperate to kill innocent civilians and take responsibility for it. That's not an act of strength That is not an act of a group that thinks they're winning or defeating. So this is what the former US defence secretary Chuck Hagel told me yesterday And of course, Let's not forget. He was President, Obama's Defense Secretary. This is what the American point of view seems to be. Now. There is no other way out of this. There is no military solution here. And at some point the United States is going to say, enough is enough. We've never been an award this long, and I think Ghani understands that. And I think this approaches is the only legitimate wise responsible course of action to take. So he's oversee fully backs what you're doing and you. No, I wonder what backing you getting from the Trump administration. They have not wanted to talk to the Taliban even though the Taliban is, is reached out directly to them. The secretary's Right. We have to show an end to war. We ahead hit full support and backing from the Trump administration in its action lead the New South Asia's strategy of the Trump administration that is created. The enabling invited meant to move to both have this trend to move forward with security to farms and consolidation of security, but also to put the ultimate political solution. Clearly, what about the all important country, your neighbor, Pakistan, which you have called in the past, the center of the Taleban wish the Trump administration has just censured and removed a hefty, many, many hundreds of millions of dollars of security aid for their active. In this regard, um, you know, without their support is not going to work Is it We have suffered.

And can I ask you a question that others have asked you in the past, including you've had questions from CNN about this, since the autumn You've been classifying the key details around your minitry. The numbers of military and police is particularly those who have been killed in this ongoing battle. Why are you doing that? And that doesn't
