how to handle trade and movement across the irish border post brags that the e.u. worries that our return to tight controls of the u.k.'s border in northern ireland could disrupt peace on the island european negotiators have refused to move into future trade talks until the issue is settled out of these say let's bring in our correspondent who is standing by in brussels so georg with the focus on the irish border today what exactly is at stake here and doesn't seem like a solution was is within reach. of the republic of ireland here is demanding currently safeguards from the united kingdom that no hard border shelby established after breaks it between the republic of ireland and northern ireland which is part of the u.k. and because at the moment both are in the e.u. this has created a soft border virtually non existing border if you go there you have hundreds of
1:03 pm
green border crossings you can move back and forth without controls without custom offices and the concern is that all of that may vanish and create further conflict in northern ireland so we won't see a solution today but what we need to see is safeguards from the british government so that northern island so that through the republic of ireland and the other e.u. twenty six your member states will say green light to move to second face georg other than the irish border what is the state of negotiations on bragg's that just remind us of the other sticking points between britain and the e.u. at this point we've just learned from start who is the chief rex it coordinator of the european parliament who met with the chief bracks at negotiator michele dunne year only moments ago and we've learned that the bill is also not yet fully settled there's no fixed deal here although it appears that concessions have been made and so he rates the chances of a deal today at fifty fifty. meantime georg we know that the e.u.
1:04 pm
wants a deal on the status of e.u. citizens living in britain what's on the table there. now the key question here really is how can those evil citizen rights that are currently provided from the e.u. and are being transferred into u.k. law how can these be guaranteed in the future at the moment it's the european court of justice who is giving that guarantee but after breck's it its jurisdiction will cease to exist and that and that is a huge obstacle a key sticking point the e.u. wants clear guarantees and once that the straw restriction of the european court of justice remains in place georg matus in brussels thank you. while another big meeting taking place in brussels today monika jones has more on that it's our eurozone finance ministers they will pick the replacement for euro group chief as your own dice to bloom today actually the meeting starts asked we speak the job is one of europe's top post and it was especially crucial during the
