portman and it's one of the ways that humanitarian partners are working but the parties to the conflict in the midst of the fighting to ensure that civilians survive bought miscounted thank you very much for your time on this that is the un's humanitarian coordinator for yemen lisa grounding joining us live from santa thank you thank you well we're now joined from gothenburg also via skype often asa freelance journalist and yemeni blogger and from san opera who the journalist was saying ok the a very warm welcome to both of you mr katie let me start with you the whole things have withstood three years of this of attacks on the saudi led coalition but can they withstand this offensive. i believe they will do all it takes to protect the port and it doesn't mean that if they have been defeated or withdrawn from other areas like in aden that they will give up this second largest city in yemen so easy. well i mean what
that is is really really strange that the all the blame is actually on the whole the they heard the i believe the humanitarian coordinator from sanaa she said what matters now is that the fourth estate is this mean that the port actually does. is kind of all been bring some humanitarian aid to yemen some n.g.o.s eighty percent of the aid comes through the port so the hoti existant or president in her day the port does a lot of stock any. of the flow of the humanitarian aid into yemen on the side that should be actually asked and called to stop its of an offensive is this idea that coalition has actually now is that i and to invade the port. is a saying that the operation is a critical step towards achieving a political solution to the conflict but doesn't bring this conflict any closer to
a political solution do you think doesn't change the calculus of the overall war not at all i think the back and forth they just another attempt by the saudi in a coalition to bring them into the negotiation table but not really to find a political solution there to they're trying to put the whole nation on its knees actually not only the wealthy because. for anyone to have control or where a human tyrion aid channel is going to have you know the ultimate power to. who is feeding the people and the so if you look at coalition has a long history in the course of human war where are many reports really showing in evidence how they are using food as a weapon of war so i'm not i mean even if the who thieves are the ones
remaining the poor open today was still undergoing the world's largest humanitarian catastrophe so absolutely they're not doing their job right and if the the saudi led coalition going to have the upper hand on the poor it as well we're going to see another theories ordered layer of the human tally and the world's largest humanitarian catastrophe and yemen mr because if the who things do lose control of the sport and they might because this is the largest offensive yet in this three year war what will that mean for their position in the war how much will it weaken them. i mean i don't think. we can hold it could just damage the whole just to the british and that they couldn't maybe defend the ports but the hoti i mean are really strong. at this point in any other area under so
that coalition has been waging a war on a yemen and on the o.t. for for three years and i believe three months and they haven't actually succeeded in the goals that they have put at the beginning as they say to destroy the whole the military capacity and to the steroid yemeni ballastic missile that in the hands of the whole before the war there was no attacks on the saudi but now the hoti are launching more missiles on the saudi and we see that the yemeni government actually doesn't dare to go to. this as they call it the legitimacy so we don't know what was the point behind this war but what was really good that we had all n.g.o.s and un security security council and the u. and they all agree on the importance of this lifeline but on the other hand they kind of agree that the problem is from the whole thing i was just mentioned that
sweden in the un security council has called on all parties to hold open they say so to give time to the whole thing to withdraw from from their sport and the problem is not the whole of the the fault was destroyed by the saudi that coalition they have targeted their main cranes in the port and that's why the port cannot only receive small ships into yemen but i can just i'm sure that the whole thing really well dug in. and they will fight for data till the death and the one who should bear the responsibility is the one who started this war against them and on of the world this latest of and against her they. let me bring you in you know it is because of the sort of vital importance of the support that we are now seeing the u.s. reject a request from the iraqi government this week to provide intelligence recognizance aircraft naval minesweepers because of congressional opposition to that offensive
do you think that significant given how much the u.s. has supported the south in the coalition so far i think there is conflicting stance from the american side so you have the congress level there is a rejection or refused to support the saudi led coalition offensive against what they did there but at the same time you have triumphed and his administration kind of giving a poor support to the starwood the the saudis and the iraqis so you have a sort of like conflicting stance and my opinion that's very real for them at least there is an aspect of human terry and concerns towards to what's happening in yemen but now the question i think is what's going to happen next if the the saudi led coalition going to have to win if the court at any cost
yeah whether there is a human course or not in my opinion the alarming consequences will be. if ever the battle of they don't open other france for the other battle and in mind comes a battle for i think the timing for there was for a bad and it comes with the dark side the leading this military vision from matter with the help of the saudis and i t's so it's very alarming what is going to happen next what with the battle is going to be negative because absolutely this is just to push with us to the north of yemen and not really. i find that mitigates to well i do want to talk more about this battle that we're seeing now and also more about the international actors involved because even if it is you know somewhat hopeful that the u.s. rejected the iraqis requests for extra supplies at this time the french actually
came in and agreed according to the iraqis to provide them with minesweepers to clear explosives that you know the whole things had placed in the midst of a katy you know various countries are saying that they don't want this offensive that they don't want the saudis and iraqis to fight for control of the port but if they're at the same time also arming this coalition and you know you have the united states version from all doing so does the u.n. is the u.n. working so hard on a political solution achieve anything when these powers continue to arm the fight is on the ground. i don't think the united nation has been working really well to a solution i mean personally i believe that the united nation has been biased in this conflict because one of the sort of thing that they haven't mentioned the saudi. led coalition name in any of the statement as
a part of this war they always say it's a civil war they try to bring yemeni parties together if they mention the saudi as one part and host the as one part of the world government as one part to bring them all to the table then we can help so the coalition responsible for any break of any cease fire or any agreement in the future and it would just mention about the that the united arab emirates. united states for support in this operation i think this just lies because they do it in the media to cover up the real involved involvement of the united states and its like to say that the united states is not involved the war was declared on twenty six of march two thousand and fifty from the united states by the saudi ambassador and this is the first what i think that has been declared from another another country and i believe that. many many don't trust the united nation to give have a date up or to be under the control of the united nations just for i would give
just some example i mean we see that the united nation. and lebanon what they have done they have taken the obvious from the people there who are fighting against the occupation but at the end. the serbian has killed a thousand surprised at the united nations right so i understand there's a very hostile six that i started to who did not know it was not the united nations i understand but what about iran and its fall is it doing everything it can to encourage a political solution to this conflict i don't know why they always try to bring iran in the conflict if they blame iran for. sinden weapons of yemen we have this look it is hard to bring this in into yemen how can it on the brink of those along the lines of missile as they say in yemen this just an excuse to fight iran the same they have done it in other country on the top of that we see that the united out of him out of claim that iran is a could buy into the island in the vision goals why they have actually fought iran
that did this is just they say it's just an excuse to say that iran is involved i mean right about the weapons that they say they united state is bringing all this weapons to the saudi why they kind of tried to tell someone else if it's true why are you bringing the obvious to the other side they should all stop all i mean just we will see what's going to have it in the battlefield or midst of a mess nasser president abdurrahman so hardy is back from exile why is he back in the country he's been away for over a year now why now i think your question is a telling question. only in yemen when a president is coming back to his country and becomes like a breaking news and that's unfortunately you know a manifestation of the failure of the obama administration in yemen technically there is no administration and the cabinet is running the country.
control from beyond the or egypt or other arab countries so it's very very frustrating about you see a president. now. existing in his country but fortunately people and also very happy that he's finally back and i think this all moves are calculated. his coming back yesterday the first day of trade also and now in yemen and met many other arab muslim countries so he wants to have a certain you know message. to the people that has their especially you know and parent rights to the food aid battle and also not to not forget that yesterday there was a speech leaked by a published a photo of the last. days or one day before he was killed and i think that is also
another calculated steps. of from you know trying to influence the yemeni rightly class and we have we don't have very long left in the program and i would like to ask mr k.t. one last question you have thirty seconds what is it going to take to ensure that this offensive is not going to cost this country even more suffering. if the united nations and the un security council will not have but i'm sure on that side that has caused this disaster in yemen which is so the idea let's call it and then of course if the water has been brought into the day we will see the last lifeline will be cut and millions of yemeni will be effected the humanitarian aid and you made generalized should not be used as a way to ask one side to withdraw from an area if you accept this time to withdraw from where they are they will say withdraw from out withdraw from other area and one final thing just mentioned the other part of this war and begin to talk

headlines and back with more news in half an hour to stay with us here on al-jazeera. never in sport has cheating been so prevalent at the highest level never has the pharmacological range of performance enhancing drugs been so great something new and this is refused to. cycling football power sports injury in sports technical schools doping is only present no discipline escapes unscathed but where do these
products come from how does this underground activity work where studying instigation of bad things parts could i touch no i have no comment. about that. you know yes the part of russia's eight hundred metres champion in two thousand and eleven unveiled to the world how russia creates its champions. and the stars of high performance sports can spend up to one hundred thousand euros a year on state of the art treatments that are often still under development the extreme growth of the sports business has generated a lucrative black market in doping worth an estimated thirty billion euros a year so in whose interest is it to unmask the cheats and clean up sport. even voters that. sponsors and sports federations a partly responsible for not the way. that that that there was
a. lot of good. in a world that values performance and competition so highly other proponents of clean sports fighting at losing battle. i believe it's a food fight but i think the mission. i pop you're going going. as a sport that relies on technique football would seem to be above doping scandals and yet it has been tainted by much rigging and. the corruption of the last. case we had was during nine hundred ninety four was the united states but i don't. in berlin a journalist conducted a lengthy investigation into doping in football because i did a large number of testimonies. from us before. that stefan much in august
balkan. was the middle of a lot of the stuff and also the food water exactly at the first bush beatles milholland but you want to take this can only go to become a devout sport lol at the human that are not technically qualified got it in our third come after it for the terms of the quote if you got to admit it from someone that still in this class are talking. opinion football has taken much longer to be exposed. it was found that the german team were taking and thirty means during the one thousand nine hundred six well camp. you vent is unknown to you given their players blood transfusions and olympic demand say injections before matches were commonplace doping carried out under the supervision of the clubs yes for four quid for me to take the whole school come the thought that i'm including. hope at thought to defeat the gangs and that's all and then fall fish short cut and then asked if i work on a ball or steel you can leave out how to make
a case of it when he's in stock and i've done fund in full on often bargain with wooden kunde in for the third kind hoping for an answer you don't get is going to get in these in a fight in two sonali given the fine stopping come ons are going on and i notice in fine art he found in few an unknown value of a move that's of all info i will look at because putin is outside you ask him live now leads the german team and denies ever having doped the french coaches did he. also played for a club mentioned in a medical manipulation case. it is all from. the novel there's. going to make. you really. get out there. there must be a lot about you to tell you a lot of support me if you think about the stuff body part of. our body. but it
only goes. on its own. these alternative methods are self era p.'s intended to allow tendon and ligament injuries to heal quickly. the treatments were forbidden by wada in two thousand and five as they can artificially enhance performance. and yet in mass alona dr who got to practice is these therapies on the world's top football players . in the sort of the little more into me and all the. he. could see me and you know some muscular ass protein asked. me a specific asked debian and last like it be in their last. look at this moment illuminated by kate thousand dollars but his immediate is less good than in most recent sang it eat with less then most yeah. any of
us made them too and i think. that this place rich plasma is really injected into the wound to speed up healing. that she whom you know not about. so the. value there is the ever see. me was having. found. this stem cell therapy has become indispensable to the clubs in healing their players to the extent that in two thousand and eleven they asked the world
anti-doping agency to lift the ban. the theme was that this is of that all but i guess within the quander senior. us. an e-mail you know i mean this is where your. fans of you know. so football has used the band method and then still manages to get it validated by the world anti-doping agency the world's most popular sport has rewritten the rules on doping. helmet lead experience which should keep a. duo since your current national sport energy to do point three let them bash shocked if he could meet again it will be on to your court be such a vocal. cord was he a gamble.
