3:00 am
sweden tomorrow and beginning talks that it is in itself is an important achievement that should not be underestimated obviously everything's not going to be solved that one set of talks off to four years of war and such mistrust and hatred i'd almost say between the sides is what hashem suggested the first step at least stop the violence at least get the humanitarian aid people to those in need and that would at least give a chance to talk. yes i think going into the talks what the who these likely would prefer is to engage in conversations focusing on prisoner swaps where the arab coalition would likely not want the talks to focus on the peace seizing or giving off their control of the port of who died and let the poor be managed by the united nations so that humanitarian supplies coming into the country and who died as the only port which is open
3:01 am
because the coalition has put a blockade on the entire yemen so that's the only port that is available to accept humanitarian aid and it's controlled by these so that is that is where some of the wrangling will take place where during nots they will be able to find a solution on how to. manage or who should manage who they deport that will be one point i think that the real trap for both sides at this moment in time is that just because saudi arabia has been weakened over the high shoji affair does not mean that it will it will necessary agree to. demands by the who thiis and. the saudis should be very careful of not at her to maximalist positions even though the international environment is very fragile is what's coming up for you all. more protests in france just by the delay of the

3:03 am
us kimberly near the. memorial service the funeral service i'm sorry at the washington national cathedral kelly what's the day been like. it's been very somber. very quiet outside of the national people even though there are hundreds of people gathered to pay their respects to beloved president but certainly all eyes were on george herbert walker bush george w. bush of course was the forty third president of the united states as the eulogize father remembering him as a man who valued character over pedigree calling him the best father a son or daughter could ever have in his inaugural address to the forty first president of the united states said this. we cannot hope only to leave our children a bigger car a bigger bank account. we must hope to give them a sense of what it means to be a loyal friend a loving parent a citizen who leaves his home his neighborhood and town better than he found it
3:04 am
what we want the men and women who work with us to say when we are no longer there . that we are more driven to succeed than anyone around us or that we stop to ask if a set child had gotten better and stayed a moment there to trade a word of friendship well dad we're going to remember you for exactly that and much more and we're going to miss you your decency sincerity and kind soul will stay with us forever so through our careers let us know the blessings of knowing and loving you a great and noble man the best father of her daughter get ahead. you know in our grief i just smile knowing that there are those who argue. and holding mom stand that you. it's extraordinary isn't it just a son saying goodbye to his father in the into believe that's come back to you.
3:05 am
that extraordinary son you see in the front row there the council the clintons the obama's the trumps one of these rare occasions in washington these days where political rival rivalries get criticized. indeed that's exactly right and well it seemed somewhat uncomfortable having shored at the funeral for george herbert walker bush to see donald trump sitting down sitting president has been very critical of the bush family they did set aside those differences to honor a man who had yet hated his life to public service in what i can hear behind me is the honor guard in the military band playing this is repair to load the casket of george herbert walker bush into the hearse where he will make his way to joint base andrews that is where he will board a flight to head to texas where he will be finally laid to rest of his presidential library alongside his wife barbara the former first lady who previously about
3:06 am
a little more than six months ago and then and you heard in that eulogy there by his son george w. bush also their daughter robin who died from look he knew when she was just three years old it's a very moving moment for the bush family but also for the presidents that were seated in that front row i think given the fact that. george herbert walker bush the forty first president really embodied characters that we know and values that we see absent from politics in the united states now it certainly has struck many who were watching as we watch in social media speaking to the people around me here they all say they came out because this is a president that marked a tone of the civility that is so sorely. rocking from politics today that's why they wanted to be here not only to remember a time in washington where there was more polite civil discourse among politicians but also to honor the man they stood for it so solidly throughout his presidency
3:07 am
and his public service even after as they were very private at their home in texas we should note that one of the final acts. in his political life but also in the civilian life of the forty first president was to vote in the u.s. congressional elections last month he made that one of his final public moments in appearances in public and people say that is just what he embodied always looking forward and remembering that there could be a brighter future kimberly thanks for that simply how cuts are white house correspondents we just taken some of these pictures from the washington national cathedral the funeral service for george h. w. bush.

patron iran it also has been involved in a costly war in neighboring syria israel also not interested in a military confrontation it is worried about hezbollah's growing arsenal the very fact that it believes it has missiles to target all areas in israel this really is about israel putting more and more pressure on iran trying to prevent iran from spreading its influence across the region in recent years it has been targeting iran and its assets in syria but it seems as of late the focus now is on lebanon because russia in one way or another is clipping iran's wings in syria it knows to stabilize syria and to get the international community on board it's going to need to weaken iran's presence in syria so the focus now in lebanon on israel's aim is to try to contain hezbollah is growing strength that will not be easy because the group is not only heavily armed it is a controlling parliament and it has the say in the next government. now factory for

3:28 am
be tolerated we're talking about nato condemning a cold war treating the i.n.f. treaty nine hundred eighty seven treaty with the united states nato saying that small sco has been in violation of that treating then joining me here at nato headquarters to talk about more faces the estonian foreign minister makes a thank you very much for joining us klaus q first of all about nato has called them nation of russia of the i.n.f. treaty is a treaty that is designed to curb medium range missiles in europe it's seen as a pillar of european security the us though has always said that they believe russia is in violation has nato been a bit late in this condemnation first of all thank you very much for having me yes indeed it has been in violation. of the treaty we've been developing systems that have been prohibited by the by the treaty and obviously if we have a naturally very very important control treaty a bilateral treaty that has been violated constant consistently by one party. the
3:29 am
question arises with it makes much sense for the other party to stick to their commitments on the treaty so now russia has been given one final chance to bring itself into into compliance would strip the obligations let's talk about ukraine and now of course nato will say condemning russia over the seizure of ukrainian ships and soldiers is staying near sent out a very strong statement very early on about this yes while we're there we should look up to this latest escalation and attack. ukrainian naval vessels and the seizure of the ships there for them in the broader context of the. ongoing negotiation against ukraine and illegal and station of. so this is another of another step in a long line of. actions and steps which serve one one one goal that's to create human realities on the ground what about the fact that the
