food and medicine into the country we will open a new page for them for dialogue what is happening in yemen is enough a coalition statement welcome solace move saying it would redeem yemen from the evils of iranian terrorist and sick tarion militias returning it to the pen era pure and natural fault but the who things who are backed by iran so they still have support from members of political party and adrift so lay directly. we used to praise your position in the past even though it was one of words only which came with its fair share of backstabbing disappointment discouragement disobedience and many other problems remain patient but that wasn't enough for you shame on you and a big shame. they were never natural allies struck a fragile alliance with the who these after a popular uprising ended his decades long role in two thousand and twelve salai now

says he wants a quick into the conflict which is a volved into the world's largest humanitarian crisis but others believe it is personally motivated it seems to me that they might be a collaboration between regional powers. and maybe the legitimate government to somehow overthrow the whole thing is first and then have a sort of so you. political talk this is what it looks like where the whole thing is headed the two sides have fought together for years it's widely thought that the who things would never have been able to take over the capitol without. it now they fractured allegiance is threatening to tear santa and its people apart charlotte dallas. well as syrian government airstrikes have targeted several cities and towns in damascus province in the six people were killed in arbonne or two others died and her sister also been attacked in these computer which has been under siege by the syrian army since two thousand and thirteen where the syrian government says
12:05 pm
there can be no progress in talks to end the fighting if the opposition keeps reminding the president to side step down if delegation is returned to damascus and says it hasn't decided whether to go back to geneva when talks resume on tuesday our diplomatic editor james bates reports now from geneva the syrian delegation leaving the talks in geneva it's not clear if they'll return their chief negotiator expressing irritation at comments by the opposition side who are still stressing assad must go the language was. irresponsible politically speaking his position is perhaps surprising his russian allies since their intervention in the war in twenty fifteen have turned things around for assad on the battlefield. and in recent months president putin has also been in the driving seat diplomatically reaching understanding's with two countries that had led the
12:06 pm
campaign against assad turkey and saudi arabia it held an important meeting last month in riyadh in a major reorganization prominent opposition figures quit their posts as members of another group with close links to moscow and derided by some as a sad stooges were admitted to the geneva delegation there's also been an important change of emphasis by the un at previous rounds of talks special envoy stefan de mistura as main aim was a transitional government it is clear the political transition is the mother of all ages he was working to the exact wording of his predecessor special envoy the former secretary general kofi annan who drew up the geneva communique which was signed by the international community in twenty twelve the communique which was later rian dorst by a security council resolution called for a transitional governing body agreed by mutual consent that last bit is important
12:07 pm
as the opposition has in the past said it would never consent to a sad being part of a transition what's changed is that demas stora has now drawn up a list of twelve principles that he says will guide the negotiations in the future can i also get clarification that you are still seeking to form a transitional governing body with full executive power agreed by mutual consent dear twelve. brink that will point when you will be reading them and you will recall that event by and we hope to produce this and if there is a dick come on and if the ending are completely constantly inspired by did you never communicated and it twenty to fifty four. but special envoy i've read them and they don't you know i've not read them but i've read a version of that and old version wait and you would seem i waited and hours are
12:08 pm
after that exchange de mistura published his twelve principles nowhere in here is there any mention of a transitional governing body of former leader of the opposition has told out just zero the whole process has been compromised western diplomats say de mistura is changing the rules of the game and that his plan now is very russian flavored james by zero geneva. secretary defense jim matters has met egypt's president i will fight a c.c. in the defense minister said in cairo it comes a week after more than three hundred people were killed in an attack on a mosque in northern sinai mattis is on a five day trip to reaffirm the u.s. commitment to the middle east he's now in jordan and will next visit pakistan and. gyptian presidential candidate tom at your feet cass reportedly arrived in cairo after being arrested and deported from the united arab emirates freak had been based in the u.a.e.
12:09 pm
since losing to mohamed morsi in the two thousand and twelve election well the former prime minister an air force commander announced last week that he plans to run for president next year company that abdel fattah el-sisi is widely expected to seek another term this is associate professor of law at texas a and m. university and she says it's likely there is some truth to should feets claim of being barred from leaving the u. . he clearly has been deported and presumably the reason why he was deported was in retaliation for his claiming that he was barred from departing the u.a. e. for france and a european trip or he was going to be campaigning among the egyptian gasper there and then presumably heading to egypt so i don't think that he would take such a big political risk of insulting his hosts for over five years who effectively gave him refuge while he was facing criminal charges in egypt that he would do something like that publicly on al jazeera if at least it was there was some truth
12:10 pm
to it so i think he probably was kept but now he's going to pay a higher price and now i think he is going to face serious problems in egypt where we don't know if he's going to be detained and i don't think there's any knowledge right now of where he has been sent to in egypt i think that shifty is a formidable contender and the presidential elections primarily because he has legitimacy as a former general and because he represents mubarak era and six years now after the so-called revolution of two thousand and eleven there is a significant number of the egyptians who reminisce. for the mubarak era and they would like that era to come back and that's what he represents and presumably there are people in the military and other parts of the security apparatus who have signaled to him that they would support him if he announced his candidacy. is to monitor the release of a journalist number two saying he's been in prison for eleven months hussein is

accused of broadcasting false news to spread chaos which he and al jazeera strongly denied he's repeatedly complained of mistreatment in jail arrested on december the twentieth well visiting from the. u.s. president donald trump has again insisted there was no collusion between his campaign and russia during last year's election he tweeted that while he fired his national security adviser for lying to the vice president and the f.b.i. michael things actions were. in admits he lied about contacting the russian ambassador in december adding he was directed to do so by a senior member of trump's transition team. what has been shown is no solution no solutions says it absolutely has been absolutely no solution so we're very happy we'll see what happens thank you all very much but as enough and nesta brooke who reports on how finns guilty plea could pave the way for more arrests.
12:12 pm
outside the white house saturday morning president donald trump wanted to talk more about the new tax plan passed by the u.s. senate then about his former national security advisers russian contacts. and what has been shown no solution no killer has been absolutely has been absolutely no solution so we're very happy and frankly last night was one of the big guys on friday michael flynn pleaded guilty in federal court to lying to the f.b.i. about efforts to obtain advance knowledge of how foreign governments might vote on a u.n. security council resolution regarding israel and about conversations he had with russia's ambassador to the u.s. during the presidential transition as part of the deal flynt agreed to cooperate with special prosecutor robert mueller's investigation into russian meddling into last year's presidential election mohler is looking into whether the trump campaign
12:13 pm
colluded with russia he's also looking into the president's business ties there oh when is the fourth member of the president's inner circle to be charged in connection with the investigation and political analyst eric hamm says he's clearly the most significant by michael flynn was a very high profile target both in the campaign and in the white house and so what he's looking to do is bomb miller is looking to steadily move up the food chain he's looking to get bigger fish and so i think he's looking at possibly jared kosher questioner and maybe even the president going forward last winter president trump said he fired in just one month. into his national security advisory post because he had lied to vice president mike pence about his contacts with russia but the president offered another explanation saturday in a tweet saying i had to fire general flynn because he lied to the vice president and the f.b.i. he has pled guilty to those lies it is
