11:02 am
to resign mate heads to brussels for a day of crucial talks on britain's exit from the e.u. she's hoping to reach a deal on bragg's a divorce terms with the european commission chief john claude younker the two sides are said to have agreed that britain will pay around fifty billion euros to leave the bloc but they still haven't hammered out conditions for the irish border and the rights of citizens living in each other's nations the e.u. has refused to move on to future trade talks until those issues are settled. for more now let's bring in our correspondent garrick mattis who is standing by with the very latest from brussels hi to you georg what are the most controversial sticking points would you say between britain and the e.u. at this point i mean when we boil it down is it all about the money well given the latest concept come concessions that at least the appear to be the latest concessions on the brakes a bill that has shifted a bit into the background and given more room for citizen rights and the question
11:03 am
of a hard border in northern ireland the key sticking points appear to be now in that field particularly northern ireland because for the irish government it seems it is now the time to come forward and to make demands because it will depend on them if they give green light then the things could move for forwards to face to and that is something that the u.k. is particularly keen on face to would mean trade talks about a future relationship and derek i just want to turn back to that hard border and ireland that you mentioned there does it seem as if a solution is in reach. it is the single most contentious issue and ultimately a solution can only be reached once you talk about a future relationship because that can resolve this issue but for the irish government at the moment it seems they're very keen to at least hear the intentions of the bridge prime minister to get some sort of guarantees of what they could say for instance if they would put it on paper and say we don't want
11:04 am
a hard border so no forms of of custom checks that could separate northern ireland from the republic of ireland something that many people in ireland but also many people in northern ireland do not want to see on the other hand creating that border if it would come to a real separation from the u.k. creating that border in the irish sea so separating northern ireland from the rest of the u.k. is also very contentious so it's a highly diplomatic highly complicated issue today will be all about the intentions of the u.k. in which direction they are heading and if it's the right direction if they give some guarantees we might well see today that we move into the second face. matus with the latest from brussels thank you another source of contention and brags that negotiations is the role of the european court of justice may has promised that britain will take back control of
11:05 am
making and interpret its own laws but the e.u. still wants jurisdiction over the rights of e.u. citizens living in the u.k. who stands to win or lose as the two sides untangle this legal puzzles well now d.w. went to the e.c.g.'s jays headquarters in luxembourg to find out. the sacred halls of the european court of justice its future role is a major obstacle in the press to negotiations. the british government wants no more european judges meddling in their legal affairs so mrs may has remained adamant that her country will not be bound by any future judgements of this court we will take control of our own laws and bring an end to the jurisdiction of the european court of justice in question. leaving the european union will mean that all will also be made in westminster and cardiff and belfast but escaping the jurisdiction of the european court of justice is not as easy as many in the british
11:06 am
government believe we have agreed to guarantee for the fifty thousand school. but the u.k. will apply concepts. in a manner. which you low but we fail to agree that european court of justice played an indispensable role in assuring the traditional systems. so the e.u. wants the european court of justice and its judges to maintain jurisdiction after breakfast especially when it comes to the rights of e.u. citizens living in the u.k. legal experts also say britain won't be able to remain close to the un trade and customs while at the same time breaking free from all the regulations that govern the single market without the court. difficult. chris relationship with. having common rules and above all in the rules being interpreted and applied in the
11:07 am
same way. to see how you feel. rule. and not only that while the u.k. will likely fail to escape the easy reach entirely the country will also lose influence here since the court will no longer contain a british judge. one possible solution to a system of joint e.u. u.k. courts to resolve disputes but even then european judges will continue to have a say in u.k. affairs. case definitely not closed. well let's turn now to some other news because we're going to head now to brussels accord spain has ordered the release of several former catalan cabinet members who were being held in custody for their part in catalonia as declaration of independence in total six catalan secessionist leaders are to be released on bail
11:08 am
but the judge upheld the jailing of four other men who have been in prison since november those still in jail include the former catalonia vice president former cabinet member and two pro independence activists meanwhile in brussels as we mentioned ousted catalan president carlos pushed amman and for close separatist allies are in court for extradition hearings and a possible decision on whether they will have to be sent back to spain. pillas following those proceedings she joins us now from brussels so what are we expecting to hear out of today's hearings charlot. there is a closed door hearing going on in the courtroom behind me carlos payan one and four other dismissed ministers arguing that they should not be extradited back to madrid now it's possible that we could get a result to the judge could rule today on whether or not they will be sent back and
11:09 am
a great deal of course is at stake for them back in spain they're facing thirty years behind bars one of their charges alone rebellion is extremely serious but this doesn't mean to say that if a judge does decide today that they will be sent back that they'll be straight back on a plane they do have several appeals and his lawyer calls which ones lawyer has said that he believes that this process could go on into at least january so we're expecting some legal wrangling to continue over the next couple of weeks ok so pushed him on perhaps realistically not being returned to spain soon but what sort of timetable do you think that we are looking at here charlotte realistically speaking. well yes well it could take several weeks and that does mean of course that constitution is likely to be here in brussels during the elections which is due to take place in catalonia on december twenty first no
11:10 am
there's a lot of speculation about exactly what that will mean for those elections but. has said that he is running an official campaigning is due to starts tomorrow there is some speculation that he will try and honiss his position here essentially in exile he would have to become sort of a figure so people he can argue to people back in catalonia that he is. prison dissidents it's not yet clear exactly how that will play out and according to the polls pro independence parties and anti independence parties are currently neck and neck so it's going to be very interesting to see exactly what's going to play out. here in brussels ahead of these elections charlotte some parallel with the latest from brussels thank you. eight people have been arrested in connection with a car bomb killed a maltese journalist back in october. was

11:24 am
is big business and at this market at least visitors can be sure their mulled wine has enough of the other kind of spirit too. so much for business sara is now taking a look at a very controversial topic namely the one of jerusalem being recognized as the capital of israel thanks so much monica yes in fact a big warning coming from jerusalem jordan basically saying warning the u.s. president donald trump that recognizing jerusalem as the capital of israel could have dangerous consequences trump has repeatedly fledged to make the controversial declaration and move the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem previous u.s. presidents have declined to do so amid fears that the move would enraged palestinians who claim east jerusalem as their capital donald trump's son in law and advisor jared kushner says that the president is still deciding on whether to formally recognized as israel's capital in the coming days. but also is that the
11:25 am
president's going to make his decision and and when he hasn't made his decision he's still looking at a lot of different facts and that when he makes his decision. he'll be the one to want to tell your nominee so so i hope he'll make sure he does that at the right time. let's get more now on this issue joining us from jerusalem is due to a few courses fondant tanya kramer welcome to you tanya we know that just the suggestion that trump could declare to the capital of israel has caused an absolute up for in the region what would you say are trumps motivations. well i think we don't know what his motivations are until he makes a decision and clarifies them as well he certainly made that pledge to move the u.s. embassy which is currently in tel aviv to jerusalem during his election campaign has signed that waiver once and his presidency now there is speculation that he could sign that they've a but then he might recognize to some as the capital of
11:26 am
israel and that would constitute certainly a major shift in u.s. policies and it comes at a time when the u.s. is actually reportedly being pushing for a new peace to be just heard jared krishna there the son in law and middle east peace envoy mr trump who came into the region many times in the past couple of months and he made it clear although he didn't give any details about what this new plan might entail but he said that it's a very personal and very important point for mr trump to go ahead with it now a lot of people are questioning now why would mr trump well had such a recognition it is such a contentious issue and there is a good international consensus to say that jews and the status of jerusalem should be part of a negotiation and they could get a deal and also for the palestinians of course they want to see. is to resign as the capital of the futurist state and that would all preempt such
11:27 am
a negotiations trying to tell us just briefly if trump does move ahead with this recognition of jerusalem as the capital of israel what are the potential consequences. well i mean it really hurt it already i mean there's a lot of serious concern being boys are ready the palestinians have said you know would make any peace a push for peace totally avoid the don't jordanians are very concerned about it they have a stake in toulouse and they're custodians of the whole he sided gyptian to have warned about it ahead of the arab league has warned that it's my destabilize the region so all of this together will make people look very. you know they will look at all the steps being taken now there in washington and follow very closely what will happen then the next couple of hours tanya kramer with the latest from jerusalem thank you. quick reminder now the top stories that we have been following for you here at e.w. prime minister to resign heads to brussels for a day of make or break talks on britain's exit from the e.u.
