well let's cross live to mike hanna who is at the united nations for us mike i suppose this would have been a bigger story if you'd agreed with the u.n. reports pretty much what we expected him to say yes indeed it was though a balanced response a denial of the figures produced in the u.n. report but at the same time a commitment to continue working together with the u.n. we did see in that un report that the saudi led coalition had committed to improve protection for children in yemen and to the u.n. report found that some steps had been taken towards ensuring this but at the same time the saudi and best best of dismissing the figures at the u.n. quoted extensively in its report and attribute all accountability to the opposition who the lead party still though this reaction very different from when the report came out last year when the saudi coalition was on that blacklist as well then
