11:03 am
that past concert while ago is a very strongly worded statement put out by the un alan. exactly the united nations said to me fourteen separate flights finding trips but access was still a difficulty but they spoke to eyewitnesses and they spoke to victims and as you see they have concluded that there may have been actions throughout this conflict that could well constitute war crimes they have compiled a list of names of people that they believe are responsible and they will cast came on to the united nations high commission there are particularly strong words as well when it came to sexual abuse and fight what they said was that sexual abuse is horrendous also lies outside their mandate but they called on nations that are not involved directly with the conflict to stop providing weapons they didn't go into specifics but we know that iran is believed to be supplying the wiki site and we certainly know that the united states and the united kingdom are supplying this so
11:04 am
if you like coalition and fight you'll remember when the saudi crown prince was at the white house for a visit with donald trump donald trump a poster board which showed the weapons that they were company selling to so dear arabia and so this report will now be handed out to all the united nations members the question is what happens next will anyone pay any attention we know that the united nations has called on all parties to be involved in peace talks it's time for the six this may help give a bit of leverage to say to the parties that are involved we believe you are guilty of war crimes and the panel of experts has made it very clear but the targeting of civilians has got to stop and it would be better if pick on police stops as they said no one has clean hands but what's going on in yemen ok alan fischer thank you let's not get the reaction from the yemen and bring in presented his approach who is the activist is also a journalist what can we expect the reaction to be from the who sees. when
11:05 am
the u.n. panel so experts say the de facto authorities are responsible for human rights violations for areas within their control. the whole. government has many will come down invited any international investigation team to come in d.m. and to investigate all crimes we remember that. by the by the dutch government was blocked by united kingdom and united stated. the whole of the. most parties in yemen has committed a crime but now what's the next step. that. step in and saying what can we expect that reaction to be when the un experts have just said this the de facto authorities are responsible for human rights violations and those include torture attacks on human dignity and involving child soldiers under the age of fifteen.
11:06 am
is my committed might have done i was a crime so they need to send investigators into yemen which have been welcomed by the many many time so when they have good evidence then they can bring anyone to justice is that of. the movement or from the coalition but these experts just to state the fact that they did enter yemen and they outlined the areas that they did go into yemen but let's just look ahead for a moment and talk to us about how likely you think that this report is going to achieve any sort of accountability and impunity when it comes to human rights violations in the country because that is what the u.n. experts are hoping to achieve what will that be achieved. i don't know the time to explain if this report will end in to bring in
11:07 am
individuals into court for the crimes that they have done into yemen from all parties then i believe that all most of those crimes in yemen will be reduced because if you bring that criminal i did admit he will try to commit any any other crime but let me make it clear that we are not sure the united nation will it go ahead. if they have collected all this evidence will they go ahead to bring those criminals into court all will this report end the same as the same list. in two thousand and sixteen which saudi arabia would have briefly blacklisted in the in that list and then what was withdrawn from it so the united nation must take a serious step to stop those crimes in yemen. and if we look into into into the war in general is an illegal war of the entire war in yemen is illegal is a war crime because there is no you in a solution that has given

a green light to this war on human rights a sign and we thank you for speaking to us from sun up now the united states says it will vigorously defend itself against a legal challenge by iran at the un's highest court iran wants the international court of justice to suspend the u.s. sanctions imposed three weeks ago they were imposed after the u.s. pulled out of twenty fifty nuclear deal iran accuses the u.s. of plotting what it calls economic strangulation lawrence lee joining us from the hague day to lawrence has a playing out today. well the americans just started speaking of about five minutes ago but in many ways i think they're in they've got an easier job on their hands than the iranians did on monday yesterday the iranians had two similar tenuously argue first of all the sanctions that the americans
11:09 am
imposed on them when they pulled out of the nuclear treaty were extremely debilitating things like a lack of inward investments there that the difficulty of iran's work sport oil the collapse of its currency renewable projects and being shelves at craft parts not being able to be imported deals with companies like boeing going south all these sorts of things but they also had to argue that all that was in breach of this relatively obscure nine hundred fifty five agreement between iran and the united states which calls for amity or friendly behavior between the two countries and they say the court should block the american sanctions because they're in breach of this nineteen fifty five agreement the americans of course don't have to argue that the sanctions aren't debilitating towards iran because politically that's entirely what what they're supposed to be the american the american government has said so what the americans have to try to do is to say that the sanctions breach of a nine hundred fifty five agreement which i'm sure they will say is completely out of date now and it was effectively rendered null and void by the islamic revolution
11:10 am
in one nine hundred seventy nine so that's i think is going to be the focus of their arguments here today and the thing that is a said yes they have most of all in their favor is even if in the fullness of time the court rules in favor of the iranian side the americans don't have to take any notice of its ok lawrence thank you canada's foreign minister is heading to the u.s. for trade talks the united states and mexico reached a new agreement on trade on monday it will replace their original contract set out in the north american free trade agreement known as nost up and donald trump says he hopes canada will be part of our white house correspondent kimberly health it has more. frequently accusing the news media of not reporting on his accomplishments u.s. president donald trump brought reporters into the oval office well to listen in real time to a phone call with mexico's president. where you good morning

thank you and congratulations together the two leaders jointly announce their breakthrough by lateral deal changing parts of the north american free trade agreement that trump says hurts us worker i like to call this deal the united states mexico trade agreement i think it's an elegant name i think nafta has a lot of bad connotations for the united states because it was a rip off. the now after agreement was signed twenty four years ago between the united states mexico and canada it saw many manufacturing jobs move south to mexico as a result where labor was cheaper one of the worst trade deals ever on the campaign trail trump promised to renegotiate nafta and bring back jobs particularly in the auto sector the new deal will require seventy five percent of an american car to be made in mexico or the united states up from sixty two percent workers making those
11:12 am
vehicles must also be paid a minimum sixteen dollars an hour but missing from this latest agreement is canada will start negotiating with canada irrevocably soon they want to start they want to negotiate very badly. relations between the two countries have been frosty since trump slapped tariffs on canadian steel and aluminum canada's foreign minister will travel to the u.s. this week to restart negotiations but it's not clear canada will agree to the changes the nafta changes still need to be approved by the u.s. congress follows weeks of negotiations between the united states and mexico their agreement now puts pressure on canada to remain a part of the pact kimberly held at al-jazeera the white house still ahead on al-jazeera the ugandan opposition member of parliament bobby wine is released on bail but his legal troubles are far from over plus we'll take you to london's

agency is reporting that saudi arabia's king solomon has stepped in to prevent the national oil company from issuing shares to the public his son crown prince mohammed bin simon wants to sell five percent of the company which is known as a ram co such divestment would open up the company's finances to independence auditors but the reuters report says the king doesn't want to do that officially they saudi government says the offer has been postponed not counseled roberts' model nikki is a senior analyst at the group it's a consultancy an advocacy organization he says saudi arabia has economic outlook is improving. we have to remember back when this i.p.o. was announced it was early two thousand and sixteen the economic context was very different than it is now saudi arabia was coming off of a year where their budget deficit reached close to one hundred billion dollars the price of oil was still low there were a lot of reforms that were on the agenda but had yet to be implemented and i think
