previously where the average person couldn't touch and tell if a post had been said opined or not why does this updated nafta have the kind of support that it needs for we bring you the stories that are shaping the economic world we live in counting the cost on al-jazeera. determined to keep doing business with iran european powers come up with a way to sidestep u.s. sanctions. think of this is live from doha also coming up. world leaders gather in new york for the u.n. general assembly where the secretary general is expected to paint
7:49 pm
a grim picture. warnings of famine in yemen millions already short of food but there could be a deal on getting help in via humanitarian corridors. decision time for britain's main opposition party members vote on what position to take on breaks it. out of the european union says it's working on a way to continue trading with iran despite u.s. sanctions president trump pulled out of the twenty fifteen nuclear deal earlier this year and has threatened to slap sanctions on companies that do business with iran she has returned she has more from new york. the e.u. was reported to have been discussing what it calls a special purpose recall for several weeks and monday night the e.u. foreign policy chief said it would be going ahead e.u. member states will set up a legal entity to facilitate legitimate financial transactions with it on and this
7:50 pm
will allow european companies to continue to trade with get on in accordance with utopian union low and could be open to other botanists in the what the plans discussed in the past have involved an entity being set up to act as a go between or clearing house which wean iran and other nations to facilitate commercial transactions for example if a country or company wants to buy iranian oil it would send money to or perhaps engage in a barter system involving this entity which will handle the transaction with iran the same were true in reverse for iran's dealings with the rest of the world the idea is to bypass commercial and central banks who are fearful of being frozen out of the u.s. financial system if they help circumvent the new sanctions being imposed by the trumpet ministration against iran in the vendor. however the details have yet to be worked out and there is some skepticism that the system will work especially given the large number of european companies already tailing their business dealings with iran. those meeting at the u.n.
7:51 pm
also announced that around remained in compliance with the nuclear deal and pledge their commitment to remain participants the meeting on the sidelines of the un general assembly didn't just involve european foreign ministers but the foreign ministers of russia and china as well meeting with iran coming as it did on the eve before donald trump addresses the u.n. general assembly in what's been billed as an attempt to really bluster iran for its activity this was a sign of real international solidarity here in new york she ever chancy al-jazeera new york. james moran is a senior research fellow at the center for european policy studies he says it's not yet clear if this plan is practical for large companies one of the options of course is to look at some sort of barter trading system the sort that we used to have in the old as the soviet union. but whether or not that's going to prove possible is anybody's guess at this time and still quite
7:52 pm
a bit of work to be done on that and also one shouldn't forget that it's always possible that somehow the u.s. could expand its sanctions scope to include barter trade as well as financial trade although that all of that is uncharted territory. on the other side of course a lot of work's been going on here in brussels and in the member state capitals concern as regards some sort of compensation or americanism for you companies who are investing in the country in iran or trading with iran that doesn't seem to be getting too far and a lot of people who predict it will be very difficult because it simply is not enough to reassure especially the larger company is when it comes to the possibility of them being caught in the net of the u.s. sanctions so that's why of course people like total george telecom airbus and others have been very hesitant and in fact in many cases of pulled out so there is still a chance that that sort of thing might work for
7:53 pm
a smaller companies who don't have big u.s. interests but it's too early to say that the saudi amarok the coalition fighting in yemen plans to open humanitarian corridors to allow for the delivery of aid he says it will work with the u.n. on the corridor that would run between the rebel strongholds of her day down on the red sea and the capital sana'a what could be targeted to help coalition is working with the u.n. humanitarian agency in yemen to establish thief humanitarian corridors to help with the delivery and aid between the data on our need help and i andrew symonds has more now from djibouti. this announcement by the saudi u.n. he led coalition appears to be off the back of a round a chorus if you will of protest and indignation and also really passionate appeals for something to be done about the finding and that was at the united nations general assembly now in terms of a humanitarian corridor being formed the details haven't been given that they're
7:54 pm
already exist some sort of agreement between u.n. officials and the coalition to get supplies through but that having very very large difficulties in doing so because of the the roads that are getting around the main fighting which is the main route between data and sana'a it is a difficult task there are the roads are really very almost impassable in places adds to that the fact that the grain mills storing so much food for the people of yemen in active they're not being used right now because of the fighting so the question is how will the who thing is engaging in agreement how will the whole process be observed on the ground and will it be effective the aid agencies are united in the warning that the famine is coming soon and the head of the humanitarian operations in the u.n.
7:55 pm
has warned this is mark local that when the famine strikes it will be too late. the u.n. humanitarian affairs chief is warning a famine in yemen could strike at any time and leave and lead to even more deaths food prices have soared and the fighting over the port of data has stopped aid agencies from reaching at least eight million people so far this year he says by the time a famine is confirmed it will be too late to stop it. my job is to draw attention to the humanitarian suffering and one way in which the situation could be worse is if we were running the biggest relief operation and we didn't have a very well funded appeal so my colleague martin griffiths who's the u.n. political envoy is working as hard as we can to deal with the underlying issues and what's needed is to get people around the table so i agree with you there's also a contradiction in this my central focus though is ensuring that the people who are the losers in this conflict in which there are no winners the people who are the
7:56 pm
losers of the civilians those little babies. our leaders are in new york for the annual u.n. general assembly when the secretary general gives his opening remarks in just a few hours he's expected to fight a grim picture of the state of affairs around the world will also call on leaders to work together to deal with the long list of problems of diplomatic editor james bays joins us live from u.n. headquarters in new york's a james we're expected to hear from a number of leaders later on tuesday chief among them of course u.s. president donald trump. well there are two i think that we need to watch very very closely given what you've seen in recent hours given what you've seen in recent months and that of course is president trump who a year ago was very much talking about north korea that was the centerpiece of his
7:57 pm
speech warning of a total destruction of north korea if it didn't dismantle its nuclear threat so many things have changed in the year and it's no longer north korea that is public enemy number one for the u.s. administration it is instead iran so listen very carefully to what president trump has to say about it ron and then it's worth noting that a few hours later in the speeches as each of the world leaders get to give their speech it is the speech of the iranian president hassan rouhani so he effectively gets the right to reply after president trump has made his speech he i'm sure will talk about that weekend attack which he blames the arab countries saudi and u.s. for and by extension their ally the united states so i suspect a particularly charged meeting of the general assembly today latest word from the trump camp from trump tower where president trump is staying in his own home in new
7:58 pm
york is there still no suggestion that there will be a meeting between president trump and president rouhani but i can tell you at the general assembly never say that nothing is going to happen because people do bump into each other people can arrange to bump into each other if they want but at the moment the u.s. saying they have no plans for a meeting all right we'll another come back to james once those speeches begin later this tuesday dance days life as the u.n. headquarters. britain's main opposition party is voting to decide its position on breaks it with six months before the u.k. leaves the e.u. prime minister to resign may still hasn't reached an agreement on the details of that split but the labor party's briggs's spokesman says it will likely vote against any deal the government reaches party members could hold a second referendum if may can't get her brags that plan through parliament that in barbour has more from that labor party conference in liverpool. tuesday's vote
7:59 pm
a labor party conference is on this text which came at the end of many hours of difficult talks and care starmer the shadow secretary in the last few hours has said that what was achieved was consensus it's almost certain to pass and he says that the room on sunday only in those talks decided to keep in the option of a people's vote including remaining in the european union that's something that's been contradicted by some senior party figures but he's saying that that is one option if the party fails to get an early general election that's what they'd really like they want to campaign to take over they say they're ready to be the next government they have the policies in place many of which on the economy a very popular with the general electorate now he says look at us we've achieved consensus we've got unity the conservative party of to reason may next week will
8:00 pm
fail to show any unity on breaks it so he's hoping that the party in the next few weeks or months will implode that in fact any deal they get with brussels will come to parliament and be rejected but that is not clear so this is why it's so important to many labor voters what labor is saying it will take what approach it will take over how to get out of this brett sit and pass and many of the younger members here do hope that there will be a people's vote meaning either approve a deal or stay in the european union now that's very contentious among some of the labor party but certainly at the moment the message is it's not off the table some people say it will be rejected.
