1:06 pm
congress that negotiations over a trump tower project to moscow during the twenty sixteen presidential campaign happened months earlier than they actually did look that's absolutely ridiculous i think that the president's outside counsel addressed this best and said in a statement earlier today this categorically false report also says trump directed cohen to set up a meeting with russian president vladimir putin to discuss the project a claim he's repeatedly denied there is absolutely no collusion no collusion no collusion no collusion with the right cohen was sentenced in december for various crimes which included false statements to the f.b.i. something trump tweeted about in response to the latest allegations pointing out cohen is a proven liar but the latest claims published in the online publication buzz feed site to a named law enforcement officials and state that cohen's testimony is backed by texts and e-mails already in possession of special counsel robert mueller who's
1:07 pm
looking into trump campaign ties to the kremlin the special counsel's office has disputed s. picks off the bus b. you'd ought to call in a carefully worded response that says buzz feed's description of specific statements to the special counsel's office and characterization of documents and testimony up trained by this office regarding michael cohen's congressional testimony on not accurate. it short of a direct repudiation of the article but it's extremely rare if not unprecedented for the special counsel's office to comment on news reports. earlier this week trump's nominee for attorney general bill barr admitted directing someone to lie would amount to obstruction of justice you wrote on page one that a president persuading a person to commit perjury would be obstruction is that right that. yes in a statement the new house intelligence committee chair adam schiff said the allegations

of a cover up are the most serious to date and valid to do what's necessary to find out if it's true mike hanna out of syria washington. colombia's president has asked to hand over ten members of a leftist armed group accused of thursday's car bomb attack in bogota even do k. has reactivated arrest orders against israel and leaders involved in previous peace talks with the government twenty one people were killed after a car packed with explosives detonated at a police academy. that as well as economic crisis has taken us a very cold one children many have been left behind by their families who travel to neighboring countries to escape financial hardship a growing number of children are living in the streets and in orphanages and which are running out of space and money to house them from graca strays about reports. of an years old his mother left him in this orphanage two years ago she went to
1:09 pm
colombia to escape the ongoing crisis in venezuela a missing in the we are received here with open arms we are taught many things and i don't want to leave my dreams behind this is the orphanage a place that provides a home to at least fourteen children and gives an education to dozens of others. is in charge he says that what's been happening here is yet another consequence of the crisis for yemeni a good job we receive children from other places that we try to keep because there is a process for abandoned children one woman came with a three month old baby that she couldn't feed we're going to the level of undernourishment has increased among children because families colonel. but the situation is not easy for the managers of them. finding resources to support the kids is becoming more challenging every day both handling this orphanage are struggling to make ends meet they have to feed the children and you can see right
1:10 pm
behind me and educate them these are the latest donations then they have received you can see all of this bill and with all of their money they can barely bag one pack of bags the other problem are the medicines. his fifteen and has a neurological problem we're told he needs all these medicines to control the condition they're almost impossible to find and when they're located they're expensive president has announced new measures to end the economic crisis in venezuela but no. economists say that they are unlikely to improve the situation anytime soon hyperinflation makes life here extremely difficult for most people. daughter was one of those who left she left her five year old son son in her mother's care. it's difficult i miss my daughter very much i really need her the situation here is harder and harder every day prices go up and up you work
1:11 pm
and work and it's not enough for anything there is no official data on how many children were left behind and in which conditions in the past two years almost three million venezuelans have left the country it is an issue that war is lawyers like. a move to what we are seeing now is a new phenomenon of children that are left behind but some are cared for by their families and others are not so there is no control over who is responsible for their child legally whether they are studying or living on the street family thing venezuela are struggling to deal with the impacts of the country's crisis leaving their country and children behind is for some parents the only option they see to survive. israeli forces have us live far and take us on palestinian protesters in the gulzar israeli border fence at least thirty palestinians including three medics were injured this footage shows one of three
1:12 pm
ambulances that were hit by the demonstrations have now run for forty three consecutive fridays as part of the great watch of return protesters have been calling for the rights of return of palestinian refugees and an end to the more than a decade long blockade on gaza by israel and egypt. the palestinians have told us they feel suffocated and trapped by the torturous process they're subjected to by israeli authorities just to go to work from long angry lines at checkpoints to tough travel restrictions many say they're fed up with endless delays seventy deca reports from one checkpoint in the occupied west bank. day off today they rise hours before the sun. cold and cramped this is the only way for these palestinian workers to leave the occupied west bank to get to their jobs in israel. all of them have israeli work permits but we're told it can take up to two and a half hours to get through this checkpoint because of what it is the same thing
1:13 pm
every day this is not a life and what country in the world does this take place that only happens to us palestinians here because of the occupation these workers try to jump the queue. but there's little space down below. fights often break out here everyone is frustrated. so. yesterday was harder than today they closed the doors for a while and we are trapped yeah a lot of the sure the suffering that we endure our work is one thing and the crossing is something else all our energy is taken from us here at this checkpoint so when a person loses all his energy here what is left if the israelis wanted we could cross in five minutes to around five o'clock in the morning that we've been watching thousands of palestinians cross here in the last hour or so i don't think anyone who doesn't have to enjoy this on a day to day basis would ever understand what it's like. we also one of the workers
1:14 pm
to film this crossing for us once inside more hold ups and queues and more frustration israel maintains that these security measures are essential to prevent potential attacks. there are many checkpoints across the west bank this is the main entry point in and out of jerusalem from there's always heavy traffic and people are fed up with you. every day they tell us they will find a solution when are they going to find a solution for this everyone is frustrated when they come to the checkpoint they lose their tempers. we are a people who don't know what is going to happen to us. so many palestinians have told us these measures make them feel suffocated and trapped there's been no movement on the political front no peace talks since two thousand and fourteen and the delay in the announcement of the us president donald trump's peace plan everyone we speak to says israel's occupation dictates their lives and there seems

1:18 pm
a no deal scenario we have to do that now that doesn't check the ports and airports but we're not making preparations for checks on border but having said that. the only way they can avoid a hard border long term isn't through goodwill isn't through the right words it has to be through an agreement with a more mountain sweep down to the sea calling for the locks open. it is a landscape indifferent to past territorial disputes divisions few here want to ever witness again. calling for luck. and with our top stories south korea says a second summit between u.s. president donald trump and north korean leader kim jong next month will hopefully be attending point of peace on the korean peninsula the white house made the

1:20 pm
everywhere really the president of colombia has asking about to hand over ten members of a leftist armed group who are accused of thursday's car bomb attack in bogota even duke a has reactivated arrest orders against israel and leaders involved in previous peace talks with the government twenty one people were killed after a car packed with explosives detonated at a police academy but the group has not claimed responsibility for the attack. police have clashed with mourners at the funeral of a man killed in anti-government protests inside sudan's capital khartoum activists at least fifty people have died since demonstrations calling for president omar al bashir his resignation began last month the democratic republic of congo is rejecting the african union's call to suspend the announcement of the final presidential election result visual cells which declared opposition to felix acadia the winner being challenged in court by his rival martin for you. you're now up to
1:21 pm
date with all the headlines are we back with more news after talk to al-jazeera. part. despite international diplomatic and military efforts the wars in syria and yemen. at a recent meeting in doha the so-called forum many of those involved in efforts to find
1:22 pm
a peaceful resolution gathered to reflect on the lack of progress one of them the head of the venerable munich security conference spread his message that the european powers in particular had failed miserably western policy toward syria it seems now it's focused more on combating certain groups and perhaps limiting the iranian presence in syria rather than the overall political future investing in the overall of the diplomacy in the overall political future of syria which is more to the russians do you agree with that analysis well i think quite frankly i'll be very honest with you i think our syria policy. has been is exhausted we started saving we the europeans we started seven years ago with a loud call for the demise of bashar assad. without really having a plan of how we would want to get rid of him. and of course we didn't get rid of
1:23 pm
him because we never had the means at the strategy and the policy to to influence decisions on the ground. so now what is what we're now seeing is the outcome of efforts by russia by turkey. i guess by iran and to certain extent by the united states with europe having been on the sidelines throughout this process that is extremely regrettable this is why i'm saying and i repeat europe must try to defend and represent the interests of five hundred million europeans the refugees didn't go to moscow they didn't go to pennsylvania avenue they came to europe. these events of the last three years have changed european and german politics in a major way almost dramatic changes the migration pressure the refugee
1:24 pm
problem so this is really our issue and we should have been played a role in a much stronger diplomatic role i think the the e.u. should have started a peace process five years ago or six years ago instead of looking the other way so this was not a beautiful you know example of great european diplomacy i'm very self-critical on that score. also at the doha forum where the leading officials at the united nations in charge of humanitarian affairs mark lowcock the undersecretary for humanitarian affairs and henrietta for c.e.o. of unicef the children's emergency fund we sat down with both of them to discuss the situation at hand in yemen and syria we began with yemen welcome to al-jazeera you're just back from yemen what was the glimpse of the country that got
1:25 pm
well what i saw was a country on the brink of a terrible terrible tragedy talk to lots of people who've had to flee their homes from the fighting parents of starving children really a place that is right on the edge and we've got the good news from sweden the parties have agreed initial. steps to deescalate the conflict and to try and move things forward but that now needs to be translated into a real change on the ground because the people i listen to the parents of starving children people who fled from their homes sometimes multiple times they're not seeing yet any tangible benefit how do you avoid complacency not so much obviously in clearly for people on the ground the people who suffered for years now but the people that were in remember in sweden how do you maintain the pressure on them to
1:26 pm
come up with something so i guess the message from the people of yemen is we're tired we're exhausted this has got to stop that's exactly the message those are the words the people of yemen i met said to me they are desperate they will stay six starving the single message to the world that they sent and i told the security council this war has to stop so the message to all those who went to geneva to remember as you say is where it's a great day actions now need. to follow to implement your commitments especially very importantly around today to where there has been an agreement that crucial port city through which so much of the food eaten in yemen comes in and the males and the roads through which it gets to people they all need to protect to be protected and a cease fire that was that was promised for data that really needs to come into operation straight away would it be fair to say however to your people on the ground even for aid workers if you want the numbers of yemen the numbers that break
1:27 pm
. the all shocking when you're talking about how many people are literally on the verge of death when you talk about cholera when you talk about but sense of catastrophe that's just around the corner that's exactly right i mean we've just published the results of the biggest ever survey of food security in yemen and what it shows is that at the highest level of food insecurity the catastrophe level for the first time there are people in that level in yemen two hundred fifty thousand of them there's only one other place in the world where there's anybody that level of food insecurity and that south sudan but there are ten times as many people in yemen at that catastrophe level so reaching them is absolutely a first priority the stories my colleagues tell me of what they're seeing on the ground what i've seen for myself seeing starving children in hospitals all the
1:28 pm
evidence is clear this is a really big problem and we need to scale up our assistance now the peace agreement . the first steps have been taken should help us with that but we need some other things as well we need all the parties on the ground to make it easier for the aid workers to get to the most vulnerable people we need to pump more money into the economy we do need to ask for more money for our appeal the u.n. appeal last year we also for two billion dollars this. we needed three billion dollars and we've got most of that next year though we need four billion dollars because what's happened during the course of twenty eighteen is that millions more people become vulnerable when you come to run those operations where the situation is getting worse not better are you kind of from a humanitarian aid point to be kind of robbing peter to pay paul because around the world now we've got seventy million people externally and internally displaced who are running away from conflict and you've got
1:29 pm
a bigger problem coming which is this that for the first time in the history of your department at the united nations can i suggest to you that you're having to tip from doing just keeping people fed and watered to doing a lot more than that we're not robbing peter to pay paul this year we've raised a record amount of money even bigger than last year is money that we raised for humanitarian response about fifteen billion dollars i think were raised by the end of twenty eighteen for the un coordinated programs and the gap between the money we are asking for in the morning we're raising is in fact getting smaller and it's a positive story that countries around the world recognised investing in reducing the suffering of people in humanitarian crises is a very cheap way to save a life and also build stability but we do have to work more closely to the second part of your question with those organizations including other parts the united
1:30 pm
nations which are involved in finding that the peace building opportunities the political solutions the development and so on because while humanitarian aid is very effective at saving lives it doesn't on its own contribute to the solutions and if we want to reduce the number of people whose lives are so terribly ruined by these crises we have to do better on solutions ok so basically what you're saying is here you're putting three to three things together you're doing what you do better you're doing it fast you're doing it with a sense of being innovative but those three things even if you try. those in a very efficient way by definition almost they're going to reach critical mass at some point you can only go so far you can really slice the salami to make it go further than it's going to go anyway at that point what do you do next well at that point in a solution to the underlying problems we need more examples of successful peace discussions of the sort we had in rainbow in sweden for yemen we need that to
1:31 pm
happen in other places we then need to stabilize the situation there seventy million people displaced by these crises we need to see millions of them going home i realize that this probably doesn't come within your mandate but you have to the u.n. has to be able to say you're talking about yemen a lot to the warring sides and also the proxy warring sides going to situation that we've seen in yemen for four years now and say actually and explain to them peace in inverted commas is in your strategic interest so you can still get what you want or what your people on the ground told you they need because we're kind of correlating two things here and you need to get messages to break it down and get across to the warring sides exactly right no one has won from this war in yemen it's absolutely clear who the losers are and they are the starving millions of children and women and innocent civilians who are pictures increasingly we see in our news papers and on our t.v. screens those. people have
1:32 pm
a good understanding of who they think is responsible it's in everybody's interest for those people to have more hope for the future for them to have a. glimpse of possible progress for grievances to be addressed for anger to be reduced and lives to be recovered that is the strategic interest for all the parties to think they've got a stake in yemen as well as a humanitarian imperative one slightly worrying us but that came out of the conversations. apart from the photo opportunities and the handshakes and your colleague mr griffiths who's done a tremendously energetic job to get them where he got the money played an absolute blinder with the prisoner release which was his calling card on day one of those discussions is anyone at the united nations not talking to those people who are representing the fighters but talking to the people who talk to the people who talk to the proxies because there were serious worries raised for example over one
1:33 pm
particular aspect you can get peace on the ground but if there are still fighter jets coming across the border from the neighbor to yemen saudi arabia game over and it just goes back to what it was before well the united nations talks to everybody and anybody who has a stake in this and i think there is a recognition that there needs to be deescalation on all sides and that is part of . what has been agreed to take forward from rimbaud lots of the parties actually were. around the table and in they in the vicinity of the talks in rainbow so we are hopeful that everybody recognizes that now is the moment to move forward and to consolidate the first steps that were taken in sweden. the wars in yemen and syria have lasted so long that an entire generation of children are missing basic
1:34 pm
education and nourishment this is where the unity against very difficult odds steps in and reapply for is the c.e.o. of unicef and according to statistics hard for syrian children that's more than four million children have no nothing other than war you're talking about two million who are out of school what is it that unicef is doing for for them. well you are absolutely right there has been a very strong toll on. civilians in syria and the children bear the brunt of it so with those numbers that many children that are out of school two million of them if you think of what happens in a child's life if they miss a year at school they might miss adding or subtraction they might list missed learning to read it's a very long period of time for children so unicef works in nutrition in health in
1:35 pm
education in water sanitation and protection all of the areas of a child's life there are as you know many internally displaced people within syria and there are more than two million children that are internally displaced and more than two million children that are outside that are refugees if you add that to the number that are out of school and if you add in those who are exposed to explosive remnants of war it's a very difficult and challenging time for children they need education they need safe places to play safe places to live they need nutrition and they need clean water but it's a very very difficult time in syria it's not just the issue of relief and protection today i mean the psychological scars that will haunt these children in the future when if this war and i mean it's difficult to comprehend i remember visiting an orphanage on the border turkish syrian border and we were speaking to
1:36 pm
some of the children there and from you know those who can sleep through those who were you know in their teens and were still wearing their beds and and really good things that we're just going to live with them for the rest of their life so. is there are scope in your work to look at what happens once the guns go silent. yes and you are right that children are deeply affected by violence of any sort so whether the violence is because of war or because of conflict in their community or because of violence at home or violence online there are deep scars on a child internally that we cannot see so some of the children that we saw that were in schools some were terrified because they'd seen too much they'd seen killing and maiming they had lost people in their family could be a father a mother
1:37 pm
a brother or a sister it's very it will never leave them so they're scared they're afraid to make friends others are exhibiting the opposite type of behavior they're more violent with their classmates they've seen it on the streets they think it's now how they should react to one another i mean looking further to the future is there some sort of plan put into place in terms of emergency response or worse bombs that is almost second nature to you guys but looking forward to what would you do for the next you know right so what we do now is we help with bringing textbooks into schools we help with getting children into school at really integrating them into a school community so there is a new curriculum that we've just launched which allows children their bit out of school for six months or six years to come back into school and to be reintegrated
1:38 pm
into school we also have simple information at schools like how to detect a mine there's lots of explosive fragments still on the ground they're pretty and children will want to play with them but if you can stay safe then you can tell your classmates how to stay safe that makes a difference so these kinds of programs how. we also have been helping training community leaders and teachers school system is how that will work and how you can reintegrate there are lots and lots of internally displaced children and young people in syria and as they begin to move and head back into communities they also need reintegration into their whole communities because their homes have changed their friends aren't there the community just not look the same we walked through an area which is to my unused guta it's been heavily bombed and so there's much rubble it's difficult to go back to your homes they've often that's been looted
1:39 pm
from all furniture the schools have been looted the schools are overcrowded because the children that are coming back were expected to go to schools but only half are open so they have to take in more water becomes a daily activity so you have to go find clean water there isn't clean running water anymore you have to go find food so children are not just going to school but they're trying to cope with an every day life and their families are struggling there's another major war in the region and that's born yemen. courts this is the twenty million people are living in hunger children will be dying as a result of calderon disease that should not be killing people in this day and age and with the technology and resources that exists. or you were able to reach those who are most in need in yemen is there any hindrance to your work where there was closure of course there was places on the siege and so forth but how is unicef's
1:40 pm
operations with regards to your mom so access in yemen is always a problem and there's another problem which it also shares with syria which is the humanitarian workers are often targeted or they're seen as being just anyone well if we're not safe we're not to a military so if if that we're not protected when we go in to do let's say a vaccination program. something that will help cholera you know a clean water program it makes it very difficult to reach the hardest to reach that are up in the mountains that are difficult isolated population has not targeting been by the military or the militia or by the saudi the coalition or by all sides but as you know cholera has been a real problem so is malnutrition the when i went into the main hospital in santa it was clear that there were just dozens and dozens of people that were coming in
1:41 pm
in every hour looking for a mound of ways to feed their children i mean they're just they're the hydrated they are starving they are coming in there are very few pharmaceuticals and drugs to help and if you happen to be born at this time period you are lucky if you can find a hospital that is able to take you in and help with the birth of a child in many places they're losing electricity electricity is what allows you to pump water so that in surgery units that you're able to wash your hands and it's just the basics but those of us who live in in a war like situations take all of this for granted and it just cannot be yemen is a. is a the largest humanitarian crisis that we have when it comes to children particularly in yemen the have really faced the brunt of the war there we saw
1:42 pm
a school bus being bombed by the saudi led military alliance a few months back and we've seen children as you've mentioned die in the hundreds because of nutrition and other diseases why is it do you think that the saudi arabia the united arab emirates the two countries mainly leading this coalition why do you think they haven't done enough to protect children in this conflict. in every conflict around the world. and none of us are doing enough there are more grave violations against children and their rights at this time than there ever have been at any time conflicts there are so many now there are more than we've ever had they are of a longer lasting and they're more severe that takes an enormous toll on children so none of us are protecting children well enough.
1:43 pm
generation after generation men work under the merciless sun of northeastern state . in this slum there's no sewerage running water or other basic services sixty percent of the people here in a loud voice live in poverty their needs are so great and their pockets so empty that they are easy prey during election time for politicians they can come here and buy their votes for as little as ten dollars of course if i'm a politician and i give culture and education to people i'm impairing them and if i'm impairing them they may not vote for me so that's why it's in their interest to keep things as they are. it's a vicious circle of inequality aggravated by a severe recession and governmental stared that's left thirteen million brazilians
