minister to resign may to overturn opposition to have planned a week before parliament votes on its. top story the director of the u.s. central intelligence agency is to brief senate leaders on the killing of the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi the head of the senate foreign relations committee bob corker says gina housefull will speak about the murder on tuesday she didn't take part in a trumpet ministration briefing on the death of jamal khashoggi last week john hendren has the latest from washington. cia director gina haskell will speak to members of the u.s. senate about the murder of jamal khashoggi that is after she did not appear last week when the secretary of state and secretary of defense held a closed door briefing with members of the senate several members of the senate
afterwards republicans and democrats alike said they were unsatisfied and an persuaded by what they heard in that room afterward madison pompei oh that is jim that is the defense secretary and mike pompei of the secretary of state came out and said there was no smoking gun that links the crown prince of saudi arabia mohammed bin some on to the killing of chris shoji that is despite reports that the cia has concluded with a high level of confidence that the crown prince did in fact order that killing so members of the senate were dissatisfied they said they wanted to hear from tina haskell the cia director actually flew to is ten ball and listened to the tapes of that killing that the turkish government provided so they believe she will have more information and that she will be more frank with them so they passed a measure that would lead to a vote later on invoking the war powers act that would allow the senate to cut off u.s. aid to the saudi war in yemen that would be an extreme step and it's very far from
being ultimately passed but the threat of that seems to be what is motivated the trumpet ministration to make kasper available to speak to members of the senate that is likely to be a closed door briefing as the briefing was last week but members of the senate and administration officials are likely to speak about it afterwards so i think we are likely to know what was said in that room well the film a cia officer glenn call says he's not expecting any big revelations from jena aspel. since the report has leaked some i think that she will speak clearly to that and i don't expect that she would go any further than anything that we know she'll never reveal in a briefing like this the sources or or the methods which she will reveal the substance the main point here is that this you can look at this two ways it's the trump administration just as our colleague in washington proved an excellent
briefing said now it's the from administration backing water or or trying to get out from some of the pressure that it is now under from the congress and it is congress's effort to reassert its part prerogatives that's that's really the news here with trump's continuing to try to carry the water for him have been some if trump can bury it he will clearly what he's doing is trying to relieve the pressure on him from congress with gestures. his standard pattern is to say to deny and then to make a cosmetic change or backing down to tout that and to change the subject and then to move on so he will do what he can to maintain his. shockingly intimate relationship and solomon while congress may pressure him son some more but the advantage in foreign policy always rests with the executive. is quizzing the oil
exporting group opec saying it wants to expand its position as the world's top exporter of liquefied natural gas the government says the move will allow it to concentrate on increasing gas exports from seventy seven million tons a year to one hundred ten million osama bin with the latest. the world's largest supplier of liquefied natural gas is leaving the biggest oil cartel after being an opec member for more than fifty years qatar says the strategic change is needed for its long term emissions to produce more natural gas or announced a decision as the oil producing nations is due to meet on thursday in vienna. opec's expected to cut oil output amid falling oil prices but there is one of opec smallest oil producers its main commodity is natural gas but the world's third largest reserves tensions between qatar and opec's largest producer saudi arabia suddenly increased and the saudis imposed a land sea and air blockade seventeen months ago but the government ministers say
leaving opec is not politically motivated i don't want to politicize it i'm a very practical engineer i have been running kewpie for a long time the way i do business is really practical so we look at you know what is the value and. you know i like to focus on efficiency is always and i think it's inefficient to focus on something that's not your core business and something this isn't going to benefit you long term so for me to put effort and resources and time . in an organization that i'm a very small player and doesn't have don't have. you know seeing what happens in that organization. does not work it's not been a great year for opec its largest members such as saudi arabia ramped up production while others have carried out cuts meaning the worst compliance by members in years opec is a bit like a family and it has all the good aspects of a family the closeness but it also has the best aspects of
a family which means the squabbles that all if i can family is they all squabble and you all are sad when one of the cozzens the sides to break rank of his departure comes as both houses in the us have introduced and the opec bills the so-called no back bill has gained traction after the trumpet ministrations increased hostility towards opec if passed the legislation would pave the way for opec members to be sued for operating a monopoly. as relations between saudi arabia and russia have improved iran iraq and venezuela have found it difficult to abide by wider opec decisions but there isn't the first country to leave opec but it is the first from the middle east raising questions about whether others could follow some of it job it out as their . dozens of wounded who see fights as have now arrived in amman alf's being flown from yemen for medical treatment the planned evacuation was one of the conditions the rebels laid out to the saudi led coalition ahead of talks in sweden on weapons
that the u.n. has cold on the saudi crown prince to support those negotiations his poll to judge him. fifty hoofy fighters wounded in the war in yemen evacuated from the capital sana the united nations plane with three doctors on board taking them to a hospital and musk out and oman right and that is. yemen is the responsibility of each and every one of his noble citizens just as we sacrifice our souls our blood and our children you too must do so. iran back to theses took the capital sun during a major uprising in two thousand and fourteen forcing president of a drug months or heidi into exile more than ten thousand people have been killed since the saudi u.a.e. coalition began its air campaign in support of how these internationally recognized government the following year the intervention and aerial bombardment of who the rebels has led to what the u.n.
calls the world's largest humanitarian crisis the world health organization says yemen is experiencing the worst cholera outbreak with nearly three thousand deaths and more than a million people infected more than three million people have been internally displaced and twenty two million people are in need of humanitarian help now four years on the decision by saudi u.a.e. coalition to allow the evacuation of wounded truthy fighters is meeting a key condition of the rebels for u.n. sponsored peace talks to go ahead in sweden this week. a previous attempt at the goshi ations organized by un special envoy to yemen collapsed in september when the who these fail to attend the murder of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi in riyadh. consulate in istanbul may have given western powers more influence and leverage over saudi arabia and iran has announced it backs the talks saying tehran is ready
to help find a political solution we should always have cautious optimism because i think that the first results that we would we would have to look at is whether or not these peace talks take place we will expect some sort of resolution between the who thesis and the united nations and the saudis over whether the u.n. will take over to management of the port there who died the un's envoy martin griffiths has just arrived in sa not to escort the negotiators to sweden he's hoping to arrange for ceasefire in the port city of her data the entry point for most aid to yemen gryphus is also hoping to reopen the son airport securing a prisoner swap and negotiating for a wider truce now yemenis hope that talk of a transitional government can avert the impending famine and cholera epidemic paul chatterjee on al-jazeera well scott pole is the humanitarian policy lead for oxfam america he says the deal doesn't help the people who need help the most. let's
remember there are fourteen million people on the verge of starvation in yemen the people who are being let out of prison who are being exchanged who are being allowed to evacuate for treatment these are the men who are closest to the warring parties in yemen as always it's the women and the children who are suffering most and who will come last and we haven't yet seen a concerted effort from the international community that puts them first so that it's a welcome step because it moves the peace process forward oxfam has reached more than three million people with lifesaving assistance over the past three and a half years local humanitarian agencies yemeni organizations have delivered even more and they're the ones who are really on the front lines and the sad reality of all of this is that everything that's needed to solve the humanitarian crisis in yemen is in yemen sure there is there are spare parts needed here and shipments of medicine needed there those are important but this is an economic crisis and the
import restrictions are ultimately and the other policies that are sabotaging the economy are just making it impossible for people to access the things that they need to survive people will die of malnutrition with food in sight and they already are that's really the hardest thing to see when you visit yemen. u.s. president for pakistan's help to advance afghanistan's talks with the taliban trump wrote the prime minister imran khan saying relations with pakistan were important in bringing the group to the negotiating table just last month pakistan of not doing enough to help the u.s. despite getting billions of dollars in aid money. mahinda rajapaksa says he'll appeal against a court order that prevents him from being the prime minister in sri lanka a majority of m.p.'s challenge russia pug's as the legal authority to hold office he was installed in october after the president sacked the then prime minister runa wickramasinghe in a move many considered unconstitutional still to come here on al-jazeera protest in

a vote next week on the agreement struck by the prime minister to resign may and the e.u. need barca has more from london. there is just over a week to go until m.p.'s decide whether to accept or reject the british government's plans but before all of that happens the government could face a major hurdle a possible embarrassment for the government the opposition labor party has joined forces with other smaller parties accusing the british government of being in contempt of parliamentary protocol by failing to share all of their legal advice that the british government had received for its legal advisor the attorney general geoffrey cogs when it came to coming up with its breath plan in its entirety what does the government even need to share this information with parliament well because m.p.'s voted overwhelmingly to demand that the government do precisely that to allow m.p.'s to make the right decision when it comes to the vote next week but
only one of the day the attorney general made a very rare appearance here of parliament defending his actions in not sharing all of this information with employees because he said that there was some very sensitive information in that advice that that was not in the public interest he fiercely defended his actions in front of m.p.'s here. i am convinced that in order to disclose any advice that might have been given would be fundamentally contrary to the interests of this country. it's no use pain and shouting our members are busy with what i am trying to do. a good job wreak injury. time. i mean it is time they grew up. while some of the strongest opponents of mrs may's deal with the e.u. are in northern ireland's democratic unionist party of the d u p on which her minority government relies in westminster the u.p.a.
found itself at odds with its electorate two years ago in the bronx and referendum the northern island voted overwhelmingly to stay in the e.u. the staunchly progress pro bracks it party is afraid that may's deal could split the united kingdom lawrence lee reports from belfast. in the process to loyalist parts of belfast their loyalty is unquestioned country first the four corners of the u.k. in divisible their problem with the brics it deal is that in theory it could leads with future trade agreements pushing northern ireland closer to the e.u. than the rest of the u.k. that in turn leads to the inconceivable thoughts that northern ireland could be unified with the republic of ireland our whole purpose of union our system and take on the length with the union we fail lots of the best interests of northern ireland long term and of is in our way where unionists we we're british were all an
irish and therefore anything that takes a side of the united kingdom as extremely honesty about a month sapling for a large ordeal this for good for the politicians who represent these people in parliament of the democratic unionists by the prime minister to prop up the governments after she failed. to win a majority in last year's election they said they would support but they don't anymore they have made it plain they will vote a deal down the simple message go back to brussels and try again try to be very clear we will not support. shouldn't be a choice between our new day we believe that's in the mitchell impressive not just the united kingdom but also the entire of the your opinion and try to get a day what we're trying to said everybody is sensible heads should prevail this isn't good enough it's not just us and not it's many many other people across other political parties as well the state doesn't get enough both sides need to get together terms the european union the united kingdom and get a sensible work for us. it will demonstrate starkly the mess the prime minister is
