situation in the gulf and how to ensure safe passage for ships off the coast of yemen and iran let me just emphasize that we don't believe war with iran is inevitable and we don't seek war with iran. what we seek is to terrorism from destabilizing and malign activities across the region and we believe the recent adjustments that we've made to our force posture have had some effect toward that end i still acknowledge that attacks by iranian proxies are occurring against the kingdom of saudi arabia from yemen and that's a problem that needs to be addressed. well the united nations has called outside the arabia and the united arab emirates for failing to honor their aid pledges to yemen both countries promised to give $750000000.00 of humanitarian assistance at the u.n. a fundraiser in february but the u.n. aid chief says only a small proportion of the money has been handed over in the past 6 months saudi arabia has given just over $120000000.00 while the u.a.e.
paid nearly $200000000.00 those who made the largest pledges yemen's neighbors in the coalition have so far paid only a modest proportion of what they promised and as a result the response plan is currently just 34 percent funded compared as i said to 60 percent this time last year but saudi arabia defended itself against the accusations this year alone which you are referring to we have paid more money into yemen than any of the dollars in the world none of them none of those members of the security council or any other do not has delivered to the united nations or to the yemeni government more aid than what saudi arabia and then i have so i reject this statement that you need to put your
money where your mouth is. earlier the u.n. special envoy for yemen martin graphic this again alleged significant progress towards peace has been made but he warned all warring factions that conflict could escalate further the war in yemen is now in its 5th year we are facing a crucial moment for the destiny of this war we need to think together of the realities and opportunities which define chances of making a move of peace the redeployment of some coalition forces in parts of yemen. as a senior coalition officials have themselves confirmed this act is intended to place peace 1st at the center of their of efforts to restore peace and stability in yemen and this is a reminder of the view already expressed that peace will come on the back of the
promises made in stock now becoming promises kept in yemen. plenty more still ahead this news hour including containing a crisis we'll look at the struggle to protect people from the ebola virus. and some of puerto rico's biggest stars are joining protests demanding that governor ricardo rosello step down. and in sports one of the favorites for golf is open championship pass had a nightmare start to the tournament we'll have the details. an emergency meeting of the u.s. capitol police board has been called because of heightened threats against 4 democrat congress women who come under attack by president donald trump the president is now trying to distance himself from his supporters particle hand has

turned our country that is supposed to be a country where we allow democratic debates. and this to take place and so this is not about me this is about us fighting for what this country truly should be and what it deserves to be analysts say this is all about the next election is the base is eating this up just as much as you give meat to a lion they are loving this he just needs to keep his base engaged in those key states anough for them to come out and vote big time for him again that's what he's banking on but in diverse communities like brooklyn new york this isn't just about words or one rally it's about racism in america the country has. disintegrated you know it's just not going to get any better. it's a culture of immigrants it's kind of the country diction to hear it from.
