negotiators here there's still a lot of work to do before they can sign this document a sixty one page draft agreement for exploratory talks they must resolve points of contention like migration climate and transport policy. then that's killing if we succeed and in this time of great polarization we can accomplish something was really important for our country namely that all of us from very very very different positions and never the less able to work together for the people of this country. a major political statement and an appeal to the four parties to overcome their differences compromise is the word of the day or it's i'm talking. today is a day when we can impression people with courage and energy and you solutions. that should also motivate all four parties today to come to the table in the spirit
4:03 am
of problem solving and not in the spirit of saving face. is. easier said than done for for weeks now the negotiators have been searching for a consensus well each party sticks to its guns that's what this means that we have to fight for the things that are important climate change a humanitarian assign a policy and an orderly right to asylum the greens top priority is reuniting refugee families who hold limited protected status the same policy is an absolute no go for the c.s.u. . we had this limited protected status as a special status in germany and now we feel it's simply unsustainable we still have high numbers of refugees coming and so continuing this program is not possible negotiators have until early morning to reach the necessary compromises. let's go to w.'s oliver salat who is following the negotiations for us all over you've been covering these talks all night and it looks like the question of migration has been
4:04 am
a major sticking point what have you been hearing there. that's right and there is a number of sticking points here tonight but migration seems to be the big contentious issue here on the table the big hold seems to be the varian see as you party that might have been blocking the talks here it's been an up and down really a roller coaster ride the talks were interrupted earlier they then continued there's not a lot of information coming out of this building here behind me while the talks are underway at this moment other than a twitter picture of two prime ministers of two different states and germany one of the green party and one of the c.d.u. of the conservative party there both together smiling saying the mood is good so we don't know what to make out of that exactly you can see this is a good signal if you want because to the two parties have quite different political
4:05 am
philosophies but it will be interesting certainly to see what the compromise this will be looking like because this is what tonight is all about it's about finding compromises and bringing an end to these very long and intense and difficult negotiations if these negotiations fail all over what does that mean for a chance. well if you do the math first of all there is technically and theoretically only just one other option to form a government and this would be with the social democrats but they have already ruled ruled out co-operating with a view party so in that case there would only be two options left one is a minority government an extremely unpopular. scenario because that would mean that the new government is doomed unstable and for historic reasons i would do everything she can to avoid such a scenario the other option would be snap elections and if you look at the recent
