ambitious endeavor to create drought proof crops amazing to think that the plan b. sort. and the international efforts to combine the pests the threats and so they bring in there's an. office just like a doctor write your prescription you're doing the same thing here you're writing a prescription for the farmer and six blows inspiring advances to farming for the future. it will be the largest famine the world to see for many decades. with millions of victims a dire warning from the un as the situation worsens in yemen due to the blockade by
3:01 am
the saudi led coalition. i'm richelle carey this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up. charles out the red carpet for donald trump as the u.s. president seeks to push beijing to do more to rein in north korea embattled british prime minister theresa may loses her second cadmus cabinet minister in a week is pretty patel quits over secret meetings and israel and spreading it there europe's biggest butter consumers but french shoppers are now facing a nationwide shortage. the un's aid chief is warning that at the seidler coalition doesn't allow aid access to yemen the world will see the largest famine and decades he's been discussing the dire humanitarian situation that's being worsened by the saudi
3:02 am
blockade imposed by the by the military alliance with saudi full fuel. and food short prices are skyrocketing the crisis is being described as catastrophic but more let's get our diplomatic editor same space at the united nations chains. but there is no ambiguity here the words are very very stark now coming out of the u.n. what are you hearing yes absolutely what we've had since the saudis imposed this total blockade on yemen not allowing any humanitarian aid in we've had the u.n. i think trying three days of quiet diplomacy not saying too much to condemn the saudis in public they have very much now changed tactics what we heard from the u.n. humanitarian chief after he brief the security council he came out and spoke to reporters and gave this dog warning of what could happen unless those
3:03 am
measures lifted and five particular steps that i'm going to run through are taken. there will be a famine in yemen he will not be lying in the famine that. we saw in south sudan earlier in the year where tens of thousands of people were affected. it will not be like a family in which cost two hundred fifty thousand people their lives in somalia in twenty eleven. it will be the largest famine in the world to see for many decades with millions of victims so james what is the u.n. actually doing to go with the public warnings in admissions they're giving. well certainly i think from the u.n. secretary out the warning is a very big deal i don't think that the humanitarian chief says something like that
3:04 am
it is we assumed completely true but he doesn't say it without very carefully thinking about the diplomatic and political consequences the secretary general of the united nations spoke to the saudi foreign minister earlier on. just a few hours before the security council meeting and he clearly told the saudis that unless this blockade is lifted we're going to say very strongly what it will mean for the people of yemen the security council of course is the body that can take action under the u.n. charter the security council heard that very same warning it was made behind closed doors to the security council before mr low cock came out and brief reporters now after the security council meeting the current president of the council the italian ambassador came out and spoke to us and it's clear that the security council has decided not really to change its position we heard very carefully constructed
3:05 am
statement in that statement there was strong condemnation of the missile that was fired by the who theories but then when they talked about the humanitarian situation and the blockade barely mentioning the country that was carrying out the blockade it seems there are some on the security council who do not want to anger saudi arabia and for now they are being very careful what they say ok james is liable james thank you more now from a hommage am jim on the situation on the ground in yemen. in yemen's capital lines to buy petrol grow longer as fuel prices rise higher having jumped more than sixty percent in recent days the result of monday's announcement from saudi arabia that it would block all yemeni air and land routes as well as sea ports in response to a missile attack from across the border earlier this week residents of sanaa
3:06 am
already accustomed to a humanitarian crisis in their country that seems to grow more dire every day are angry i get even inside you know this is a humanitarian crime they are exterminating the yemeni people and no muslim should be doing that these are unjust operations but it's not unexpected for those who kill children to close some ports. the price of cooking oil has also spiked this temporary interruption of supplies in yemen is coming on top of an already catastrophic humanitarian situation we shouldn't forget this the population is already reconned the population already lacking cope and lacking basic essential services ranging from food medicines medical services water and sanitation everything there is also growing worry about how the blockade will impact efforts to combat yemen's cholera epidemic with more than nine hundred thousand suspected cholera cases and over two thousand deaths since the outbreak
3:07 am
began in april the world health organization is calling on saudi arabia to allow for the flow of medical aid into the country. back in sanaa where even before this latest crisis it was difficult to obtain vital commodities the sense of outrage is deepening the lot can not be closure of the land sea in airports and yemen is considered a huge injustice towards yemenis hardships mount for a population as weary of war as they are depleted of hope. christine bakaly is a yemen researcher a human rights watch she says it's up to the u.n. to put pressure on saudi arabia to act. well from our end listen the u.n. security council met today to talk about the humanitarian situation in yemen and what we said which which i feel very strongly about is that the u.n. security council already has a mechanism for sanctioning people in yemen who are committing gross violations and one of those violations is the obstruction of humanitarian assistance so what we're
3:08 am
saying is ok u.n. security council you already have means and ways to make it very clear to the parties to the conflict be it the saudi led coalition or the forces that if they obstruct and there will be clear and concrete consequences and far past time they did so because you have people in the government of the u.s. or the u.k. or france sort of issuing road recitations of concern but not actually following up on that so it's not enough for the u.k. or the u.s. to say we're worried about it and yemen at this point it's up to the members of the u.n. security council and particularly those allied with saudi arabia to be using all the leverage at their disposal to be pushing these people to actually make changes to the ways in which they're fighting this war and certainly for them to stop it puting even access again as we saw sort of very dramatically in terms of the saudis announcement on monday that they were going to try and close all entry points to yemen iran's president hassan rouhani is warning saudi arabia that it will achieve
3:09 am
nothing by threatening his country it's a latest salvo in the escalating war of words between tehran and riyadh and it's not just again in the middle it's also levanon says the lebanon they script which is backed by iran has committed acts of aggression against it but iran says saudi forced the resignation of lebanon's prime minister saad hariri monday to have never seen in history so far a situation whereby a clue tree interfered with the affairs of another country like this bringing on his soil a leader from another country and keeping him of course we do not know whether he has stayed willingly or whether they kept him against his will but they forced him to resign and told him what to say this action is on preset and that in the history of our reach. the tensions a lot of the people. are reports from they were. posters are springing up with messages of support for sidle happy and has been for days since he announced his sudden resignation from the saudi capital this neighborhood in the
3:10 am
lebanese capital beirut is one of the strongholds. returns to the country. we hope the government functions again because people put off their plans like buying a car out of no one knows what tomorrow will bring. regardless of whether they support or oppose her decision to step down people here are worried the resignation is linked to the saudi iranian rivalry in the region past attempts to weaken iran's lebanese ally hezbollah has led to violence. the news of the resignation it was just like when his father was killed there was a political earthquake there could be an attack he wanted to return already people are complaining that the pace of the economy has slowed down in a country already struggling with financial problems. but the resignation is linked to regional but it's affecting us from the first day our business suffered we need
3:11 am
a new solution to save the. saudi arabia has made it clear it intends to confront iran and it seems it will start in lebanon. knows what saudi arabia will do next there will be a war but they can't for example the tens of thousands of lebanese working in the gulf. saudi arabia no longer considers hezbollah as its only enemy but all those who don't go away and take action against the group. so resignation was a saudi move against has the law it brought down a government riyadh considered too close to iran now saudi arabia wants lebanese leaders to sideline and curb hezbollah's powers but that is easier said than done hezbollah is a powerful political party with an armed wing stronger than the national army lebanon has seen turbulent years political crises wars late last year there was
3:12 am
a rare deal between saudi arabia and iran to leave lebanon at the sidelines of their power struggle that deal is now a thing of the past and tangling lebanon's future with a deepening regional crisis senator bayh goot syria's army as well as militia from iraq have surrounded the eisel control town of. it's located on syria's border with iraq and is eisel last urban area and the region this video released by press syrian government media shows fighting in the surrounding area on saturday. the international criminal court wants libya's. to hand over one of his talking manders to face war crimes charges mahmoud all were folly is accused of being responsible for the executions of thirty three people between march and july of this year and i.c.c. prosecutor has asked the u.n. security council to support her demand and send a warning to libyan war criminals that they are not beyond the reach of the law.
