crimes. more on this from kos in we don't have the details about how many of those warlords who what names and so on and what is the basis on which. will be created of the the world itself will be pardoned within the framework of this agreement an agreement that has been proposed by the african union and supported by the united nations hosted by sudan but it is not the first time this happens seven at least seven agreements of this kind had been agreed on in the past but soon to be violated now the hope is that this one can hold because. probably it is the first time that all of the arab league the fourteen rebel factions are represented in the persons of their main leaders that gives hope to the central african people after years of bloodshed and after more than one
7:57 pm
million people have either been displaced killed or displaced or forced to leave the country we also know that the two presidents of sudan and the central african republic according to the information we have right now are going to attend this ceremony to give it more importance it is going to be signed within a few hours from now in khartoum. yemen's warring sides are holding talks on board a boat in the red sea in an attempt to save the file data ceasefire the meeting between the saudi backed government and who the rebels is being chaired by the un's outgoing once a retired dutch general patrick comair the two sides are discussing how to implement a peace agreement reached in sweden last year it called for the withdrawal of forces from the strategic port city of war on this around. joins us here in the studio so how should these talks coming at a very critical time and it's trying to say this peace deal what we know about how they're going so far well there was supposed to meet in the data itself and then
7:58 pm
agree on the modernity of the withdrawing her fighters from the city and the port. and they were facing huge differences over who should take over in the houses are saying they can only hand over control to local authorities if the data the government is saying is no we are the ones who have to take over if failed to come up was there a few weeks ago his convoy came under fire. and this is cited now to go to the boat of the coast of her later to try to bring all the parties however the hoses are very quick all of the attorneys by the u.n. saying that the we are willing to salvage any deal they said that they have been over the last month three thousand violations by the saudi led. coalition against the who of these particular in the data and when you look at the situation on the ground you have fighting in different parts of the country so the it's the environment is really is very turns so is there any sign that there will be this withdrawal of troops of course that was supposed to happen on january seventh and
7:59 pm
hasn't so far i don't think is going to happen for food for many reasons the data itself it has become the focal point of the fight to control yemen between the both these and the government backed by saudi arabia and the united arab emirates that's where eighty percent of the food imports come into yemen if you lose control of the data because control of all of yemen if the hope is that has either it would pave the way for the government to launch a major military offensive to take over the city of the capital some or so the cannot afford to see to show the world are losing the war of the same time the government is determined to take over the data they say the reason why we have a deal in sweden is for the truth is to pull out and for us to take over and i think as we speak the u.n. is grappling to trying to convince both parties to come up with concessions which is not the case of far and as this is such a crucial entry point for any aid coming into yemen to the people eighty percent of
8:00 pm
whom are dependent on it how is that flow of supplies being affected while this is the thing the biggest concern now is that the saudi you a coalition is saying that if the deal collapses. they will resume the campaign they started a few months ago to take over her data and for the un for the agencies operating on the ground they're concerned that if fighting fires up in the area it means a massive disruption of the flow of food into yemen and imagine people in desolate mountainous areas across the country who have to wait weeks and weeks for food to arrive it will definitely exacerbate the humanitarian situation which is disquiet by the u.n. itself as the worst in the world.
