there is one how do you see the country recovering from 6 months one year after the break so there is a palpable mood among the public just to get this done and that's certainly why i think boris johnson and people who are open to no deal with all of you that is america not in a sense and yet the ironic thing is that you know bret's it's not just for christmas it's for life in a sense even if you did do no deal you're going to be going into trade negotiations with the e.u. and then discuss the trade offs continues in a sense so it's not going away in britain any time soon i'm afraid you think you will have damaged the fabric bush society in the long term while it's a bricks it's all this is a vision i think it's what this is a massive referendum which is a binary outcome remain or leave someone has to win in a sense and certainly i'm sure to reason by which you comes right about was we have to reflect on how she's not going to this because obviously she did very much a conservative only bracks and not reaching across the aisle till she had to and tried in vain the last minutes and so look david cameron's been was a coming out next month values will be a very fine read indeed but they will be is

that story. but 1st yemen's un recognised and says it's now in control of aid and after a brief offensive against u.a.e. backed southern separatists if we captured the port city from the separatist forces 2 weeks after it lost control of it victoria gate reports the yemeni forces loyal to the internationally recognized government of president abbot rabin mansel heidi celebrate victory natans presidential palace. in a sudden offensive lasting just a few hours saudi backed government forces recaptured control of the city from the u.a.e. backed separatist fight is the government's offensive started on cheese day in yemen's east in abyan province by wednesday mooning its forces were on the outskirts of aden load as they retook the push towards the
6:03 am
center of the city it's reported they faced little resistance from the separatist fighters that's led some to conclude a deal with tom between saudi arabia and the u.a.e. ahead of a possible negotiation to end the war it's a. cheap tactic immoral cheap tactic by the legitimate government who is. using sleeper cells to activate and to to cause chaos in the city all in the. 4 or negotiations. separatists from the southern transitional council are part of the saudi u.a.e. coalition that's fighting against these but in a dramatic twist 2 weeks ago they took over the city of aden the seat of the saudi backed yemeni government some of the separatist fighters are refusing to surrender the government's own civilians to avoid military camps and areas where this
6:04 am
fighting. this morning at least. were evacuated from areas of the clashes but again this. 1000000000 area we do expect the most of the crowd to be simply because of the random shooting and random but partly that's happening by both sides . yemen has not always been one country north and south yemen came together in 1990 after years of conflict but it's not been an easy union and the war is deepening the divide gayton be al jazeera. joining me in the studio asemi have the editor of international interest a current affairs magazine with a focus on the middle east thank you so much for joining us a lot of developments of course in aden the passing of we 10 days or so what do you think of this latest one i think it's a very welcome turnaround for those who are supporting the international recognized government for those who believe in the outcomes of the national dialogue that took place that brought about this government the reason being is that everybody thought
6:05 am
that the u.a.e. which has been backing the son of separatists for a number of years now they believe that the u.a.e. wanted to carve up yemen wanted to pursue this independent foreign policy agree with the iranians under the table remember iran was using dubai as the port to circumvent the sanctions and essentially did leave saudi out to dry they had been telling mom had been saved had been telling been selman that there are only 2 powers that can fight the whole he's the muslim brotherhood who we hate backed by qatar all the sudden separatist been so many of us been saying he said but i'm worried that these people will do an independent bid bin zaid kept assuring him that they were the lesser of the 2 evils and i can control them when the southern separatists did a coup. and i don't remember the twitter army of the u.a.e. vital fan. they were on twitter saying that yemen united is a myth it was never united they were preparing for this the saudis started panicking before going we're the ones on the back foot we're the ones who mediated we've been fighting 5 years and now it's going to split the south will go to either north or go to iran and i'm screwed across the border no way will this happen so they set the u.a.e. on the wrist they went to the americans the americans got involved they said to the
6:06 am
u.a.e. yemen is saudi stomping ground we need you 2 together to push against iran the u.a.e. has had to withdraw and that's why we saw that a lot of the military posts a lot of the southern separatist forces were ordered by the u.a.e. to hand them over to the saudis but only after southern separatists were defeated in b.n. and defeated in other areas by ironically the muslim brotherhood so for the 1st time in yemen we saw the muslim brotherhood and the saudis actually fighting side by side against the u.a.e. and this is why yemen is a war of contradictions and this is why we're close to and then it's a welcome initiative for all who believe in the democratic values that brought about the international recognized government but do you essentially will feel humiliated they'll feel like it's a slap on the face but the only reason that they would accept it is if there was significant pressure applied to them but so do you think that now this will continue in that vein that the 2 sides will cooperate i think it's difficult i think they could unite around that then because let's look at example if you're one of the yemeni factions who's not the separatist or the hoses if the separatist had sees that then the future of yemen will be decided by only 2 parties the
6:07 am
separatists and the causes so that framework doesn't suit you but a weak internationally recognized government allows you a framework to at least get stronger within the years to come so it remains to be seen whether the yemeni factions united to restore a for a framework so they would have breathing space to become stronger or if they restore the international recognized government in order to actually make a genuine push and say you know what we've been arguing for too long the separatists took advantage of it let's unite and let's go north to try to push the whole thing is out so it's unclear also remember who these they've been surviving in some now for quite some time and who data and the un's position. towards yemen is not a one about who's right who's wrong it's not about supporting national dialogue or the un just want to solution whoever is stronger they want to and. let's just go with it and this is the reason why because when the un suggest to the that we recognize your power because you're powerful will negotiate with you you send a message to the rest of yemen stripes in other words if i can take in our cities and if i can last in the cities long enough do you want to recognize me the u.n.
6:08 am
doesn't care about democracy or the principles or the national dialogue that brought about all of the parties together to agree to a government un recognizes power who has 5 years and son who data let me take the isn't valid let me state it 5 years then do you want to come and tell me please come to the table and negotiate and then i can form a government where i am the power until the u.n. decides that a national dialogue by all the parties that was agreed upon that broadhead this government which the oath is then reneged on with weapons and seize the capital until the u.n. believes that democracy is worth fighting for it's worth sending troops it's worth ousting the whole fees and force it into the agreement then we'll have a free for all in yemen and the strongest will when we say it was so you're saying that until and if that happens and the situation in yemen is effectively stuck is it it's a stalemate yemen is renowned abdul nasser went into yemen in the fifty's and sixty's the egyptian army at the time was the most powerful in the region they were defeated could have been still turn in 2009 he wanted to show off to become king to his father was a crown prince at the time the hope is annihilated him in the in northern yemen no one goes into yemen to fight on this demand the next because they know that the
6:09 am
yemeni tribes who fees in the history they've had with qatar saudi iran and the u.a.e. it's incredible they always there like the alliance is always shifting yemen is a quagmire saudi didn't want to get involved in the 1st place the u.a.e. saw an opportunity to control of the ports iran is using yemen just to poke saudi they're not really interested in taking over yemen either and who is believe finally our time has come from the 60s we've been fighting to try to become the main power this is our golden chance and the sudden separatists are saying 94 we lost the war yemen became united we want to be our own independent state all our resources are going north so these all these all these very different agendas because the national dialogue that brought everybody together for the 1st time is not being supported by the un this is why we have a free for all and this is why until the u.n. adjust its approach yemen will continue to be a stalemate sami hamdi had a share of international interests. it's a very complicated situation thank you for talking to us about it thank you. hass has the latest state of alert in gaza after 3 police officers were killed in 2
