7:05 am
a series of war crimes committed by the sound of correlation. it is a sign of desperation, you know, from the, the saudi coalition side. and, you know, when they entered this, when they decided to launch this war and yeah, man, you know, they promised to know that they will bring back the proxies or the clients to power, you know, within 3 weeks, 7 years have passed and they have not been able to achieve any of the objectives they failed consistently to bring an end to this war. in fact, that intervention has only complicated an already complicated situation. political situation in, in yemen that has been no, no accountability whatsoever since the start of this war. it's a failure from the not only do and the state side, but the permanent members of the school council. the reality is that all the 5
7:06 am
members, instead of cooperating to try and find a way on how to compel the saudis to, and the war in yemen and compelled the m and the sides in order to enter in good faith in a political process. you know, to end the strife um, they in fact have been competing for lucrative contracts with ravia and e. so the highest body in the world and united nations. this is us go to council. you know, the members have not been, i have not played, i'm afraid. a positive role in the last few years for us and russia held what they say are frank talks. they trying to restore their standoff over ukraine. moscow insist nato should not let ukraine join the alliance, but that's been rejected by washington. its european allies and nato. natasha battle has moved from geneva at a hotel in geneva, the u. s. secretary of state and russian foreign minister arrived for crucial talks
7:07 am
into diffusing tensions over ukraine. antony blinkin and sir gala froth set the tone early both said to break through was unlikely. we don't expect to resolve your late work as well. also, i mean with those in his job rotary with we are not expecting a break through this meeting either. we are expecting answers to our proposals after the meeting law for offset moscow wanted a written response from the u. s. to its demands, including a guarantee that nato will not grant membership to ukraine, something blank and has repeatedly called a non starter. but he said the u. s. would respond to russia if moscow addressed it's concerns and respected ukrainian sovereignty. we've been clear if any russian military forces move across ukraine's order that's renewed invasion. it will be met with swift, severe,
7:08 am
and the united response from united states and are partisan allies. u. s. intelligence says russia has already amassed at least a 100000 troops on its western border and is moving weapons into allied belarus, north of ukraine. the u. s. and russian positions are clearly far apart, blinkin and lap off making very little real progress. but the 2 men did agree to continue to pursue diplomacy as a way of the escalating, a crisis which could lead to war. it was on the shores of lake geneva, the talks between the u. s. and russia led to the end of the cold war, decades on how old rivalries have resurfaced, both sides accused each other regression and relations of dangerously deteriorated . the outlook for the coming weeks is turbulent. natasha butler al jazeera geneva. so let's take
7:09 am
a closer look at moscow's demands it once nato troops out of romania and bulgaria and seeks guarantees, the alons won't add any new members, namely ukraine and georgia. russia also wants assurances. the u. s. won't build any new military bases in former soviet states. and i told her so far reject these demands and says it's up to sovereign states to determine their own security arrangements or to find their differences the years in russia say they're open to further dialogues. daughter jibari reports now from moscow the russian foreign minister said that there is currently a lot of hysteria that russia is not interested in invading ukraine. and all this talk is a false narrative that's been created by the western powers to give them an excuse to put more nato troops alongside the border, a with russia. and that is something this country cannot accept. he said they will wait to find out a written proposal in a written answer by the u. s. government next week, where the u. s. stands on what the russians are asking for,
7:10 am
and they will decide how to proceed from that point forward. he said that it is not an out of the question to continue the dialogue and it was not worthy to hear the u . s. secretary of state saying these are not negotiations there, just discussions. and i think it's important to highlight that because each side, they are very much entrenched in their demands and that is not likely to change. but what is now clear is that dialogue and diplomacy is not dead. both sides are eager to continue dialogue about the differences they have when it comes to the looming crisis and not just ukraine, but also nato, and its role in this part of the world. and the russian foreign minister said that they will study carefully, they're written answer from the u. s. and then decide how to proceed for their part . this is what they wanted to hear, that they will get a written response, and they know it got a time frame for that from the u. s. government of next week,
7:11 am
and they will decide how to proceed from that point on the u. s. as it will continue to you, sanctions against leaders, it accuses of undermining peace in bosnia herzegovina. comments were made by the head of the us agency for international development. offer a visit to the country early this month, washington and out sanctions against mila dudek, a bosnian serb representative in the countries. 3 member presidency. leaders here are attempting to so division, present. dudek in particular, has created a climate of tension. one that is vulnerable to miscalculation and the risk of escalation. not 250000 liters of drinking water delivered by the new zealand navy is being distributed across the top. it's the largest delivery of fresh water to the islands 6 days after devastating volcanic eruption and some ami water sources on the archipelago had been contaminated by ash and sea water. new

7:20 am
i left crimea soon after russia. next have been insular in 2014. like many, he thinks that ukraine has come a long way since we are different in mentality the road different. we are very much different now from, from russia, and we are very much different from ukrainians. that war, you know, 2014, more than 50 percent v vi. we believe that this is just a part of game. like, let's say, a kind of trade in, you know, we would sure what states we'll provide to rush on the brochure, et cetera. so we hope it, sol, blubbering, i think, but for catch a push ne and skia, the problems also come from within. she hasn't returned to her home tom of logan's, since pro russian separatist took over. i thought she summed up to do the problem is not only russia, sometimes i don't feel part of this country. sometimes my friends and colleagues make the point that we are guilty of provoking this conflict. i really don't

7:22 am
states of the european union. the majority of member states. the one that we adopted today is that border protection is critical for toppling the european migration crises in order for the european asylum system to properly function. in norfolk, syria, frost heavy, rain and snow have damage more than 70 camps for internally displaced people. almost 3000 tents have been affected, leaving many families struggling to find shelter or stay warm. the un, as was the flooding when the snow starts to melt, millions are displaced within syria, largely due to the civil war. there was l. herani as mona, from booboo village, and i left the northern country side window. so that's a young wants to. can you met you? how luna is that a teddy threw on him? the camps residence had been trying for the last 3 days to remove snow from their tents and to repair these tests that were damaged because the very bad weather in the area of bull beula in aleppo,
7:23 am
countryside amid fears of more snow to fall in the coming day and that the camps residence fear the worst, and they've been suffering enormously over the past few days. get the middle, he had he and as you can see, this tense and many others have been damaged. and we've had 3 of rough days. our tense has been damaged and our suffering continued. we haven't received any help yet. in may a hold on hold be a no human was out of them. they said that the volume of assistance is not enough to meet the needs of the residents because the bad situation is suffering and humanitarian crisis in the area. they fear the worst will happen because of the current weather situation. and the miserable condition i told the tense can't even provide residents with the minimal safety they need mon or sylvia and dennis from the international rescue committee, she says more resources needed to help display people the. so this is
7:24 am

7:25 am
. they need is related to child protection, food security, where a lot of people that feel do not have food to eat every day. so we, we try to balance all of us. we try to balance and definitely we call the international community and donors to consider to consider these because there's, there's a lot more that we could do if more resources will be dedicated to cd. i support i'm to abortion activists have gathered in washington d. c. for the annual march for life rally in march, the anniversary of a landmark supreme court ruling in 1973 that legalized abortion thousands march to the court, which is considering 2 state bounds limiting access to abortions. if the justice is upholders laws, the historic ruling will be overturned. how does your castro is that the right? it is the 49th anniversary of the roe vs wade court decision which gave access to
7:26 am
abortions to american women. and these marchers who are adamant and that access and immediately these are anti abortion activists. and they represent a minority of americans, only one in 5 say that all abortions should end in this country, but they are a vocal minority. and they believe right now they have the wind behind their sales . that's because last year in conservative states, more than $100.00 new restrictions on abortions took effect. and just yesterday, the u. s. supreme court again declined to immediately end a ban on abortions after 6 weeks in the state of texas. but the big court case still pending before the u. s. supreme court is a case on whether roe vs wade should be overturned altogether. in other words, whether or not to remove that right to abortion in america. and these activists believe that with the, the conservative leaning on the user cream,
7:27 am

7:29 am
been frustrated by organization's representing their legal and constitutional rights. the former generals that lead the government have made no secret of their disdain for such organisations. and their desire for more control. none the less, critics say the current draft is far too broad. even basic humanitarian work could be threatened by this new law. the organizes of these food donations for those people to thanks by the cove at 19 downton concerned, they could be shut down because their work could be perceived to show thailand and the government in a bad light to many who live on the margins of society. such as the homeless and yos are providing help where there's no government aid. ha, ha, mcdonald mc one. ah, this is a clear violation of our rights. our work is for the greater good and the people. and only society will judge us, even if the government persuaded to make substantial revisions to his n g o law. it's likely to be keeping
