8:50 am
the whole thing is inside the u.a.e. backed government forces had initially agreed to withdraw from her there by january the 7th but that never happened the un says the move would be the 1st practical step on the ground since the stockholm agreement last december and stressed however that the rebels must now follow through with the redeployment well the yemeni information minister. has reacted on twitter saying the hold the offer to redeploy from the ports of what they the us the leaf and east there to begin on saturday is inaccurate misleading and will be a repeat of the handing over of the portable day there to members of their own militias any unilateral deployment that doesn't allow for the principle of joint monitoring and verification of the implementation of the terms of the sweden agreement as elusive and acceptable well our diplomatic editor james bays has this update from the united nations. it's too early to say whether this is actually a breakthrough the stockholm deal in december that's almost 6 months ago said the
8:51 am
who things should do this and 6 months on they haven't done it yet they now say they're going to do it in the coming hours from the 11th just a few hours from now to start redeploying going on until the 14th it's no coincidence that the next meeting of the u.n. security council is jew on the 15th the security council putting a great deal of pressure on the who thies i think losing some patience with the who thiis of course i think this is a time when the process is at some risk because having made this big announcement the un there is a big problem of course of the who these don't do it this time it could collapse the whole process there are also some problems of what happens next in who data who is going to govern the territory that who these withdraw forth from according to the stockholm deal it's going to be local security forces that is somewhat problematic i can tell you there are members of the security council discussing the
8:52 am
idea of some of those u.n. monitors perhaps going in as advisors to some of those local security forces to take command of the situation that at this stage is not just annoyed dia it's not in any way agreed by anyone at this stage remember too that of course we're talking only about the deal for who date or the other ports near it not a wider political solution for yemen. now without the ship has sailed from france without its planned cargo of weapons human rights protests that a shipment would have breached an international arms treaty linked to military intelligence reports show that french weapons sultan yob have been used by the saudi antarctic coalition against him really as that in yemen paul brennan reports . the ship at the center of the latest saudi arms. the sea had spent thursday at anchor on the edge of french territorial waters the 225 meter party young who
8:53 am
waited to enter port and load up its cargo french weapons destined for the saudi military. in paris though to separate human rights groups had lodged legal challenges to try to have the shipment declared illegal and on the key side around 100 demonstrators assembled determined to take direct action to prevent the ship docking again or human since it's a junior to proceed the war in yemen is a difficult war we are turned into support of saudi arabia and if we the french citizens do not act we don't try to stop ourselves we will end accessories to this business we don't want this we don't want to be in this situation on. the 4 year long war in yemen has displaced more than 3000000 people and their strikes by the saudi led coalition forces have killed tens of thousands of civilians several european countries now refuse to sell arms to saudi because of that but france the world's 3rd biggest arms exporter says it's received guarantees from the saudis
8:54 am
it's not it is uncommitted on your computer the majority of the arms that have been sold a used within the territory or at the border nevertheless i would like to say here the what we reiterated was the guarantee for them not to be used against civilian populations it's a position that human rights groups say is untenable or will you get off that secure your people we can't trust those words why because the story keeps changing we were told the arms were only used for defensive purposes and all of a sudden we're being told we never said there weren't any french weapons being used in yemen we said we didn't have proof that french weapons were used to kill civilians so france is where it is jibberish we cannot trust what they say then without warning the bar a young blue departed without its controversial cargo ship tracking websites show the vessel got under way just before 10 am. on friday heading not for but for the spanish port of suntanned the question now has the shipment been cancelled or is

the french government simply going to send it via another route paul brennan al-jazeera. with an on to our other big story of the day donald trump has escalated america's trade war with china by preparing to add new tariffs on all products that aren't over the face of import taxes the move comes after the u.s. president imposed other new levies and the latest round of trade talks failed to deliver alan fischer sent us this report from washington d.c. . says a deal was close until the chinese broke it so in commuters he believes will lead to a better deal i happen to think that tariffs for a country. a very powerful you know with a piggy bank that everybody steals from including china the white house issued a statement from the president saying hiking tide of some 10 to 25 percent on 250000000000 dollars worth of goods means china piece a lot more money directly into the u.s.

high priced chinese goods. the chinese are retaliating and one sector being hit is u.s. farming both sides are under pressure to do a deal when the world's 2 biggest economies have a problem with each other and the potential is there for the rest of the world to feel the pain alan fischer al-jazeera washington. joshua dong is a senior research fellow at the china and international studies and beijing and he says both the u.s. and china have a lot to lose if the trade war continues i guess that china will resume its. higher tariffs. u.s. products of agriculture products which account for a larger part of the u.s. trade with china and a lot of u.s. farmers accurately paired our chinese market and also chinese the chinese side may take measures against imports. in terms of its automobile and the part
8:58 am
that is also a big part of u.s. trade or with china we know all know that the chinese export to the u.s. is much bigger than u.s. exports to china in terms of sheer trade volume and china of course cannot. match. the u.s. hired her for chinese. goods hiver china is china is a huge market for us for united states not only in terms of goods but also a good and export of technology so also china has a growing market for us that is a huge kind of leverage and saw a lot of the u.s. businesses are actually very much concerned with a looming you resume trade war a major trade war between the 2 sides. the united states has imposed sanctions on 2
