their safety they say they didn't have a plane or permission from the u.s. and saudi governments to leave yemen but the u.n. special envoy remains hopeful of future negotiations from of zeros david chaytor in geneva. the peace process collapsed before it even began they were meant to establish a framework for the peace process they are meant to build confidence measures to try and bring the trust together between the two warring factions but now the yemen government delegation attacking their bags in the hotel behind me and are ready to leave this is been a huge disappointment for the special envoy for the amman martin griffiths he hasn't given up all hope though he hopes to continue with the peace process in some form he hopes perhaps to bring the the sides together at a later date but he won't give any timetable on that let's hear what he said we're going to. take up the issues that we will have discussed here this is what i mean
by we have begun this is what i mean by we have begun. it's too early for me to say when the next round of concentrations will take place or will be held that's obviously going to be high on the agenda to so that we don't go through a repeat of this week and i think it's important to note that. and also wanted to be disappointed not to be here but the prospects for resurrecting the peace process do not look good a member of the yemeni government delegation here told me that as far as there was concern they were going to try and force the who tease to the negotiating table this whole affair that he's shown how wide the gulf is between the two warring parties whatever martin chrestus the special envoy feed them and decides he's going to face an uphill task if he's going to try and get these two sides together the
u.s. government to slashed more aid to palestinians the latest cuts will affect cancer treatment and other critical care a jerusalem hospital sandy gallacher reports from washington. well this is the third week in a row that the trumpet administration has removed or as the state department told us reprogrammed aid to palestinians in this case is twenty five million dollars to the east jerusalem hospital network that is a collection of six hospitals that provide treatment that is not available in guards or all the west bank so we're talking about things like critical care cancer care child dialysis and that twenty five million dollars really does go along way but this as i said is the third week in a row last week we saw three hundred million dollars in palestinian aid removed from the united nations the week before that it was two hundred million dollars in humanitarian aid so altogether we're looking at a half a billion or just over half a billion dollars in aid to the palestinians removed by the trumpet ministration
president trump himself says the angle he's taking here is he wants the palestinians to talk about peace if they don't this is a way of him getting back at them a bit clearly the treatments that have been put in place or provided by these hospitals that really will affect the most vulnerable people among this is dialysis for children so that gives you just some idea of what removing this kind of money will do to palestinians believe them or is the c.e.o. of augusta victoria hospital he's also secretary for the east jerusalem hospitals network you joins us now live from ramallah good to have you with us sir how will this twenty five million dollars cost impact upon the provision of health care in occupied east jerusalem. yes thank you sir this is a very sad day for us in jerusalem and definitely four members of your islam hospital network of which i am the secretary it's very sad because you know
children patients with cancer patients with you know severe diseases that cannot be treated other than he are no prevented from coming to jerusalem because we cannot afford to continue the delivery of the services as well as coming to this interview in an hour ago on the way you know on the cost of the hospital called me to tell me that there are about two to two to do to curve down the services because of severe shortages in in their cash flow this is diverse to think you know we're very short of this this is you know i cannot describe such a decision and its effect on our people in jerusalem we are the only entity in the whole of british time that provides services that are not available elsewhere including radiation therapy to cancer patients including open heart surgeries to children at because it often including haemodialysis for children at the list of
the this is immense this is of catastrophically nature i mean you don't use it as elements for food because she says for. me this is not a low but this is this is inhumane this is very crude and now i i used this as a platform for the international community to intervene we cannot continue the lives of patients are at risk i'm talking about patients who are severely sick who are about to die who have you know who already put so much effort to arrive to each other's lives because of accessibility issues because of barriers at areas checkpoints in gaza and other sick points out on the west bank. now come up with the with the finances this is not acceptable by many standard as as i understand it so this money wasn't going directly into health care itself it was it was to help patients actually gets to the hospital they could be treated and when you think
about how much it must cost to run six hospitals twenty five billion dollars actually doesn't sound that much. would it in fact it does i mean when you are below below below below any ability to meet your daily requirements you know this presents about twenty five percent of our annual budgets for each of them most of which is about one hundred million dollars so it adds up and it makes a big difference particularly in view of the huge accumulations of that that are owed to us as six so yes it does not go that far but i mean it's at least it keeps us go going for a couple or three months did we find alternatives you know i was in that with our minister of finance and now we'd in the middle of two to find alternatives you know we we we caught up on the word today the other. friends in
europe intervene don't let us close don't let us go down the drain this is not something that we can afford stopping this these are said which is essential to the very lives of palestinians. how much should we are we talking about how much does it cost to run efficiently that the hospitals of which u.s. secretary this this network of hospitals in in east jerusalem the e.u. contributes around fifteen million dollars per year i mean is there any way that that the you could increase the amount that it pays to try to make up that shortfall. yeah i mean over the last at least five to six years the american government through a shit was putting about twenty five million dollars annually the e.u. would put thirteen you million euros annually making about forty million dollars representing about forty percent of our total budget the remaining part is to be of
age and was supposed to be paid by the palestinian ministry of finance and which has committed lots of resources and did ask year but still we are in shortages and as you probably know the. initial finds itself is failing is facing serious financial challenges so this comes to add insult to already very weakened financial structures of the but it's thirty and what is not acceptable is you use human lives vulnerable groups women and children who come from gaza from the west bank for cancer treatment for kidney dialysis not every day but ensured on the west bank or gaza and you penalizing them you think stop we need to sign put it to get agreement you need to give up jerusalem you need to give up everything before you can get treatment this is this is the message and i tell you from here from i just you know i tell all the public this decision by the term admission would serve exactly the
opposite of what is in the behind it could stop the so many thanks indeed for being with us will eat no more than who is the c.e.o. of the augusta victoria hospital thank you sir. u.s. president donald trump is threatening to slap tariffs on nearly all chinese imports he said on friday that he has a package of new duties ready on goods worth two hundred sixty seven billion dollars this is in addition to those already announced on imports totaling two hundred billion dollars the movie scene is the most dramatic escalation in the trade war between china and the u.s. one of china's most senior officials as arrived in north korea lee shanshu is in pyongyang to attend a key military parade on sunday as north korea celebrates its seventieth founding anniversary but contrary to earlier reports china's president xi jinping would be attending the festivities his absence is seen as china's china expressing
