offensive continues and the rebels who are losing ground remain defiant. we don't recognize assad's authority he has destroyed our cities and killed our people he destroyed syria to stay in power we will never recognize him and we reject the presence of the reigning and afghan militias it's only syrians who should decide the future of the country. the syrian army is massing troops in the area the opposition says thousands of shiite militias are also moving in dar was the focal point of the syrian uprising in two thousand and eleven but in recent years the rebels have been retreating they now control one neighborhood in the city and a few areas on the border with jordan this is

italy the vessel from the shipping giant musk is awaiting instructions from italian authorities a spokesperson for the company says there envelops of the good health to come six days after six hundred thirty migrants arrived in the spanish port of valencia new government had refused to let them enter the country for the natives of france and spain of the all european countries to work together in tackling the current migration crisis spain's new prime minister petro sanchez is on his first official visit to france for talks with president emanuel on sunday they'll join the leaders of member states to discuss the migration standoff first. on migration there's a risk of fragmentation in the dismantling of europe by the return of nationalism our common name i think i can speak for both of us is to answer this with a real reinstatement of europe which means a realist an ambitious europe that protects and has the ability to decide enact. i mean we thank the french government for the solidarity and responsibility shown
5:10 pm
with regards to spain's decision concerning the aquarius boat in spain we always believe that the migration phenomenon is one that concerns you countries as a group and not just those countries in the periphery. i lived in paris and the fashion area just behind you the leaders leaving that meeting what came out of it. well what you heard there was the big message from the meeting at the end and that is really that the european union must have more of a coordinated response and strategy when it comes to migration there is no doubt that the new spanish socialist prime minister. the french president very much on the same page this was the first meeting between these two leaders the first of course since sanchez decided to let the migrants and refugees from the aquarius charity ship that was built by italy let them come into spain it was something that emanuel not all plays he said that it was
5:11 pm
a real show of solidarity from the spanish leader but he said the migration simply cannot be solved like that on a case by case basis now both sanches and mark raul will be heading to brussels on sunday there was a mini summit or migration there ahead of the e.u. summit later in the week and this was not for these two leaders to really try and discuss some new ideas plans and strategies and agree on how to move forward it was an opportunity for them really to discuss that before the sunday meeting now what we do know is these two are very pro fiercely pro european union leaders they believe in the european union and as you heard there from there in those sound bites that you played a little bit earlier both of them say that unless something is done on migration unless a plan is come up with then perhaps the future of the e.u. could be at threat because there have been so many divisions and so many rifts so should we expect in your response to this crisis this coming week.
5:12 pm
well there's no doubt that the fact that this summit is actually being held on sunday this mini summit on migration really shows you the sense of urgency among european leaders to try and come up with some sort of plan b. . so far what we've heard is one of the solutions that could be proposed regional platforms very much like the whole sports we heard about a few months back these are areas outside of the european union where possible asylum seekers could go and be processed now whether or not they would be eligible for asylum would be would be seen by immigration officers from the e.u. there if they are eligible then they would be distributed within european union countries now the problem with that is of course you have to get third party countries to agree but also the e.u. is not in agreement on how to deal with migration that is the issue you have several leaders from central european countries saying we don't want any more
5:13 pm
asylum seekers and migrants to be redistributed in all countries so how these leaders are going to persuade those who are against such plans really remains to be seen and that is why this has become such a crisis at the heart of europe and why these two leaders. really want to make sure that it really doesn't end up breaking up the block. from paris thanks. you know weather update next and then. government is accused of horrifying crimes against the range of by the international criminal court plus. the state of emergency in papa new guinea as it prepares to host an international summit. welcome back starting our weather forecast in central and southern parts of china
