6:50 am
a rebuke from both democrats and republicans to the trumpet ministrations policies toward saudi arabia and the fallout since her killing this is now unanimously unanimous way the united states senate has said that crown prince mohammed bin salman is responsible for the murder of her mouth and showed. that is a strong statement i think it speaks to the values that we hold dear the rest of this resolution does i'm glad the senate is speaking with one voice unanimous voice toward the san. as to her closer look at the united states' involvement in the war in yemen washington has been providing support to the saudi erotic coalition in yemen since twenty fifteen until recently much of that assistance was in the form of in-flight refueling for saudi jets that was halted last month by mutual agreement the u.s.
6:51 am
still cooperates with a coalition on intelligence and is the top arms supplier to saudi arabia and the u.a.e. it says its offices advise on potential targets to minimize civilian casualties but saudi strikes have killed thousands of civilians including dozens of children on a school bus inside a province in august our correspondent was in jordan is live from capitol hill in washington d.c. it was two major decisions there by the senate. that's right the first was the senate resolution that is compelling of the u.s. military to stop all support including intelligence sharing with the saudis and emirates military says they conduct their part of the war in yemen of course other supposed to now be a ceasefire coming in the yemeni civil war so we'll see how long that lasts but there had been growing concern among senators pretty much all year of about the human cost of the yemeni civil war the inability of humanitarian groups to gain
6:52 am
access through any of the port cities to deliver emergency food and medicine to those people who needed it the images of children starving because there is no food in there because the economy has been shattered by the saudi led air war that people can't even afford to buy what food there is available in the country and certainly there was this question about whether especially in light of the school bus strike in august whether the u.s. indirectly was supporting the saudi efforts to go after who the rebels and in some cases some suspect to go after civilians as a way of trying to break morale and so with between that and the fact that she was murdered on october second it really led to a real sense of outrage here on capitol hill and so this was
6:53 am
a chance with both wives aleutians for the senators to express their disgust with the conduct of the war in the amman and with the in regard to the murder to express their disgust that the someone who might be a future king of saudi arabia could a stance a bully ordered the murder of a journalist and think that he could get away with that many many people found that patently offensive and i think the fact that all ninety nine senators voted on a resolution. condemning mohamed bin saddam on ford's murder sends that message loud and clear and what impact will these votes have on the trumpet ministration. and will arnett sends a very clear message to the trumpet ministration that the days of the presidency conducting foreign policy and not getting any criticism or any pushback or any oversight from congress those days are over and is in the reason for this is
6:54 am
because congress has the traditional legal responsibility for deciding when the united states should be engaged in war and they and congress has interpreted that involved with very very broadly not just u.s. forces deploying to a combat zone and engaging directly with an enemy military this includes the whole gamut of military activities and so you're going to see more pushback it is quite telling that you had republicans as well as democrats voting for the resolution on the war in particular because that is saying that now when the defense secretary or the secretary of state comes to capitol hill asking for support for some part of foreign policy that these cabinet officials are going to get a lot of scrutiny and a lot of pushback and that is something which donald trump has not had to experience in the first two years of his presidency. thank you very much indeed.
6:55 am
but in sweden there was a major breakthrough on the final day of talks between the yemeni government and who she rebels organized by the united nations both sides have agreed to a cease fire in her data and the withdrawal of troops from the red sea port city which is the main route for food and medical aid into yemen and the u.n. also says that is what they call a mutual understanding on deescalation. in the city of tire is the other major center of fighting this comes after a deal was agreed on tuesday for a prisoner exchange in january involving around fifteen thousand people on both sides united nations has announced another round of talks will now take place at the end of january james bays reports from new york it's a handshake marking an interim deal for yemen the hoofy chief negotiator and the yemeni foreign minister and some had doubted would even agree to meet at least talks will both be the first good news after years of war in
6:56 am
a country that has the worst humanitarian situation on earth. we have reached an agreement on the day the port and city which will see a move will really poignant of forces from the port and the says the and the establishment of a gun ordered a governor it wide cease fires. the un will play a leading role in the ports and these will facilitate the many turning excess of the floor routes to the civilian population and it will improve the living conditions for millions of yemenis the talks in the swedish castle had lasted seven days some of the language in the deal they produce seems vague and there are many details still to be resolved trust between the two sides is clearly lacking both made it clear that they don't need abide by the deal if there are opponents to to. oh that we can look at two agreements signed serious effort has been taken firstly
6:57 am
the release of prisoners and those that have been forcibly abducted and the other agreement is they had a good agreement but these are virtual agreements we are assuming that the other party will withdraw and will release the prisoners. that you want we are ready to implement the peace agreement and give the un a logistical role in running sana airport and who data port but we need more guarantees because the other side keeps sabotaging everything we didn't get anything major in sweden but there were some good developments there is no military solution in yemen and still we can reach an agreement if the other side agrees to a political solution the un special envoy martin griffiths who led the negotiations will now brief the un security council on friday here in new york diplomats are pleased the agreement is seen at the high end of their expectations i think it's a breakthrough. and
6:58 am
a good first step because now the commitment we've seen is start from shows that there is a genuine commitment i think both sides realized this war as is bringing nothing and going nowhere except for a huge you're going to turn suffering so i think this is beneath usually important agreement there's still a long and potentially difficult road ahead diplomats from the u.n. security council. the meeting discussing the possibility of a resolution mixed week to endorse the measures that were taken in stockholm the difficult bit is the last thing political deal for yemen that is something they still have to come up with james by al-jazeera the united nations joining us now on this huge agenda is to build lord of the gulf matters website so how big a deal is it the fact that they've managed to agree initially on what looks like a sort of sort of a roadmap towards peace in yemen well one was doesn't want to be too overly optimistic on it but i think it is very significant what martin gryphus has
6:59 am
achieved and i think we are beginning to see the possibility that this awful war will come to an end and the key was getting the u.n. in play that appears now that that will happen the next step i think we need to see the saudis stop the bombing campaign that's got to stop but you know i would say that tonight i'm much more optimistic than i was twenty four hours ago and it's very impressive what martin garbus is done because clearly he's been able to establish trust on both sides which is the key to any negotiation and to bring them together and to get the movement for example e. the the prisoner swap that's fifteen thousand people and the families all the families involved so i think that there's a long long way to go but it's a very very promising start and oldest to this evening this in the senate on. blocking u.s. military aid to the to this coalition how much of an influence will that have had
7:00 am
on what they've managed to achieve in sweden. well i don't think that they probably connected the two in sweden but it's coming it's coming a very fortuitous time because this all goes back to the and this is an expression by the senate of really rich that don't trump continues to stand by muhammad bin salman in spite of the fact it's clear that he is responsible for the murder of her she so one of the ways that the senate and it was bipartisan they said you know what we're not going to stand by this we're not going to accept this position and they and they have now used the war in yemen as a way to get at trump on on that i mean bipartisan but also you notice that on the only space you can look. at unanimous vote to say this man this crown prince this unruly young young man is is the one responsible for the brutal murder and you think about it this is this is unprecedented.
