3:02 am
the results show was slim lead for incumbent juan orlando it undoes over leftist challenger side of the door in. the disputed presidential poll sparked deadly protests and charges of voter fraud. no deal on the terms of their divorce yet britain's breaks in talks to leave the european union are stuck on the irish border the line that separates northern ireland from the republic of ireland will one day separate britain from the e.u. tonight the border could just break bricks i'm bringing off from berlin this is the day. we have been very clear that northern ireland must meet the european union and seem to turn on the rest of the united kingdom but on a couple of issues some differences do remain despite our best efforts which
3:03 am
require further negotiation it was not possible to reach a complete agreement today and the prime minister has been clear that the meeting the european union of. also coming up australia is set to legalize gay marriage later this month today one lawmaker who couldn't wait any longer so there's only one thing left to do. ron had to call him. a proposal from the parliament floor we'll have the answer later on the day. we begin the day with the latest version of the motto breaks it means breaks it it reads as follows breaks it means writes it except in northern ireland and perhaps scotland and why not add london to the list theresa may the mother of that motto met european commission
3:04 am
president john paul younger today for lunch in the hopes of clinching a deal to take breaks it talks to the next level well that was not on the menu we know tonight that theresa may was open to a deal we northern ireland to stay within the e.u. common market for the sake of peace and stability on the irish border an exception to the british rule well the conservative party in northern ireland got wind of this and came out publicly demanding northern ireland exit the e.u. on the same terms as the rest of britain and with that to recent may's lunch time hopes were dashed and was awarded. despite our best efforts and to significant progress we and our teams have made over the past days on the street making we've thought the issues it was not possible to reach a complete agreement today. we know have
3:05 am
a common understanding on most relevant issues was just to us really open for discussion. for consideration for the negotiation and further discussion as president has said we have had a constructive meeting today both sides have been working hard in good faith we've been negotiating hard and a lot of progress has been made and on many of the issues there is a common understanding but it is clear and it's clear crucially that we want to move forward together but on a couple of issues some differences do remain which require further negotiation and consultation and those will continue but we will reconvene before the end of the week and i am also confident that we will conclude this positively. thank you. there's a lot of bureaucracy there to filter through let's find out what is going on to do that i'm joined by our correspondents barbara vessel in brussels and bearded mohsin
3:06 am
one good evening to both of you believe me start with you theresa may john called younger they were very optimistic when they went into this lunch meeting today when they came out. they certainly had not had dessert what happened. yeah dessert was not served because they had hard and constructive talks which is diplomatic speak for it was quite terrible obviously they couldn't move on during the weekend a draft resolution had been circulating about ireland how to avoid a hard border an island and the magic formula was there should be regulatory alignment between the two sides that means in plain speech it should be more or less the same in both sides off the future border and however at the last minute this deal was scuppered and all fingers are now pointing towards the d u p.t. the northern ireland unionist party and our need for
3:07 am
a senate it's her fault yeah i think it's her fault and bigot i want to ask you about that first so let's take a listen to what the yeah what arlene forrester said from the day you feed today when she got word of the plan for this exception for northern ireland take a listen. we have been very clear in northern ireland must leave the european union on the same terms as the rest of the united kingdom and we will not accept any form of the regulatory divergence which separates northern ireland economically or politically from the rest of the u.k.'s so big it did we just see the northern irish already start breaks it talks in their tracks is that what we were just watching. well possibly is what british media are reporting we of course really officially confirm it but also it's what the irish t.
3:08 am
shirt has been sort of suggesting he said that there was an agreement that had been make read with him with that reason may with you but then it didn't happen that he was disappointed that this couldn't go through however it's not really a surprise because we knew that northern ireland would be a major stumbling block we knew that the d u p the unionist really want to do everything in their power not have any border between northern ireland and the u.k. this is for them the most important thing they want to stay close to the u.k. they don't want something like korean if it cajun of island by the backdoor by having northern ireland and the republic be sort of with the same regime but not the u.k. so this is really not a surprise that we had this reaction from the do you peter day and what has happened with this beer get now if recent mayors willing to talk about an exception for northern ireland well can scotland also asked for an exception london can't
3:09 am
wondered also ask for an exception isn't this a pandora's box there's been a yes for sure and i mean they have been asking for nicolas sturgeon the first minute of scotland she came forward immediately and said well if northern ireland gets a special treatment we also want to stay in the single market scotland never wanted to leave the e.u. scotland voted against bracks it and of course london as well london voted against rex it so everybody it will come and make their demands so it's very very tricky situation for tourism indeed and barbara i mean you see things from where you're sitting i mean you know the cynic in some of us could look at this and say that maybe theresa may is her strategy here is to actually kill briggs and before it happens. that would of course be a very extensive interpretation of the situation one that of course in many of
3:10 am
british media has already been aired during the last days and said this was the most certain way to sort of go underneath it however what will have on the ground here in brussels is that talk will continue this week you know with a lot of skepticism because frustrations are really sky high here and nobody really knows how to you know where a possible solution could be after this don if this deal that was a more or less on the table has been killed at the last moment then what now do it to now and we know the president of the european council don't notice because last friday i'm almost handed the veto to island he was in dublin and he said no decision at the e.u. summit next week will be taken against or without you so it's really now the ball is in the court of the irish they can now say whether they want to go ahead and let britain go ahead bruce breaks the talks next you go into phase two talk about the future and a trade deal or not dublin has the key you know double has the power who would have
3:11 am
thought that would be the cure used today or has a force on the story in brussels big muscle mystery force in london to thank you. well still to come on the day syria's lost generation we'll look at the plight of more than a million the child refugees in turkey now many are for growing and education simply to help support their families. well tonight speculation is growing that u.s. president donald trump could announce this week plans to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel now it would be more symbolic and it would fall short of trump's campaign promise to move the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem yet warnings of the risks and the dangers attached to any change have been fierce and well the palestinian president mahmoud abbas has reportedly been on the phone nonstop with world leaders trying to get
3:12 am
them to pressure trump turkey has warned that a unilateral change by the u.s. could end any hopes for a mideast peace. the status of jerusalem and temple mount have been determined by international agreements it is important to preserve jerusalem status for the sake of protecting peace in the region if a step is taken which alters the status of jerusalem it would be a major catastrophe i'm joined here now at the big table by okrent baker he is a middle east analyst he's also a former advisor to the palestinian authority or was good to have you back on the show. margaret abbas as i said they are reportedly has been on the phone nonstop talking to world leaders first of all what can he say to them and who can he speak to to actually effect change and to change don't transmit on i mean i don't know if anyone can change a donald trump spy and i think the only one who can do that is donald trump and some times i wonder if even he knows what he's doing at the moment and if he goes
3:13 am
through with this it's it's it's going to be a catastrophe. for all involved everyone whether he goes through that first step of either moving the embassy to jerusalem or simply to recognize why are we are we talking about different levels of of dangers here let me let's start with what is most likely recognizing jerusalem as the capital but no move of the embassy that's like being half pregnant and there's no such thing if if he goes through one he might as well go through the other but what would happen though if he if he goes with this more symbolic move and say ok jerusalem is the capital you would have an explosion any change to the status quo which is miserable in and of itself divide but any change any unilateral change of that status quo and at that magnitude will have an equal and opposite reaction and that is going to be so
3:14 am
disastrous for everybody involved in the middle east and simply so donald trump can deflect from his own domestic internal problems and the russian flare flynn and i mean do you think that's what we're seeing here is this a a tactic to distract i think donald trump is like a child he's a child and he thinks that ok all of the u.s. presidents republican and democrat have signed this way recent one thousand nine hundred five every six months i don't want to do that i'm going to do something else and at the same time he keeps doing this to deflect any kind of attention because he believes that it's going to take a special prosecutor miller off off off the set and it won't mean he's ok so there's in the domestic considerations i mean you know we could talk all day about that. but let's talk about inside israel there is opposition to any change not from benjamin netanyahu but. bigger netanyahu in his camp are they
3:15 am
concerned at all about the security issues for israel if this decision is made now because benjamin netanyahu sees. in a way like trump that this is zero sum game benjamin netanyahu always thinks he's always looking to the short term to try to get these so-called victories and there will be fear of victories because in the end it will lead to nothing but no more more conflict more bloodshed more death it will lead and even the short end of the long term two problems also for israel and for its for its population so it's very much short term thinking and i can't believe that. i i hope that someone will have the ability to press on trump that his words here have real meaning in the real world. he just can't send out
3:16 am
a tweet and not expect it to have consequences in the real world and this will but there has there has been in my opinion just looking at the coverage of this the the opposition to the possibility of a change the opposition has been rather muted i would have expected just a louder outcry from friends from from people opposed to any change and what wow do you explain that for example the un the un has never recognized the fact that that east jerusalem is under control of israel i mean they want things to go back to the way they were pre-one nine hundred sixty seven so why don't you have the un being more vocal about the possibility of donald trump changing things well i hope they will but this has been kind of doing this under the radar and this is come out now all of a sudden we've all been focused on all of the domestic issues with donald trump and all of a sudden he pulls this out of the rabbit out of the hat of i'm going to change i'm
3:17 am
going to move the embassy to jerusalem and i think there is going to be a lot of opposition and there be a lot of opposition among european governments definitely among the arab governments and among the u.n. i don't know how after the fact that there's the concern right that it will be then too late once the decision has been made it's my hope that all of these governments right now are making representations to the united states through their embassies and through their. diplomatic channels to say please don't do this i don't know i'm not privy to these conversations i would hope that that's happening if they're not i hope that all of these world leaders get on the phone and try to tell trump that this is one step too far do not do this you know i think is a lot of face time taking place right now internationally. as always thanks for your insights appreciate you having a pleasure thank you. turkey
3:18 am
has taken in more refugees from war torn syria than any other country more than three million syrians are registered in turkey the u.n. children's agency eunice out says about one point two million of them are children but living as refugees in turkey means children are forced to grow up very fast. the rattling noise of sawing machines has become the soundtrack of this childhood she works twelve hours a day monday to friday in this clothing workshop in east onboard the women here a sewing underwear and iris has to make sure they never run out of fabric. she earns about fifty cents an hour. as the house and i have of course i'd rather go to school but it's just not possible we have to pay a lot of rent and food the water bill everything is expensive that's why i need to
3:19 am
work and help my family. and us is eleven years old and not the only child in this workshop muso has been working here for two years like agassi is from syria colleagues from the moscow's is thirteen he's the oldest among the kids. the youngest here is only six years old. the turkish owner lets us film but only because we promised we would not show him in our report child labor is illegal in turkey the owner knows this but says the families would be much worse off without the work. these children might be safe from the war and terror all back home in syria but what they really need now is education and the chance to build a future despite efforts by the turkish government to get refugee children off the streets and into public schools many here remain out of the classroom.
3:20 am
many other children us and out by their parents to beg on the streets they can be seen everywhere in istanbul up to one million syrian refugees live in the city about one third of them are children no one knows exactly how many of them are working instead of going to school. at us has finished work for today she takes me home with her to meet her family. she has two little sisters her mother's pregnant and had to stop working they don't receive any financial support from the turkish state her father found a job but even with the money. they can still only barely make ends meet.
3:21 am
we have to send her to work we don't have any other choice every morning she cries and tells me i want to go to score it's heartbreaking i know she is too young to work and many people would not offer her job because she's still a child but i know the owner of that clothing workshop and he said he wants to help us. so he could absolutely of us and i still live in syria i was the only one working. and it was enough to support my family. even my parents. but here it's different rent the kids expenses i just can't do it all on my own. i meet. one of the stumbles district may as he admits the child labor is a problem in turkey one that has grown with the arrival of the syrian refugees.
3:22 am
our options are limited. we try to get these children into our schools give them books and pens and school banks of course we do. but we don't always reach all of them. it's often the case that more help is needed and we are able to give. is the talk. that's why others are trying to help in alice's neighborhood syrian teachers are giving classes even on weekends for children who otherwise wouldn't be able to attend school turkish arabic a math the basics at least. for our us these are precious moments when the sewing machine stop rattling and she can be a child again if only for a few hours. i mean it's horrible that we have to report something like this in twenty seventy here the big table
3:23 am
with me is my colleague julia hand if ordered there in that story what's your impression that when you get your back you know in germany you think about those children. are they able to cope with you know being part of what is a lost generation the kids i'm mad with were incredibly strong and dutiful you know they were talking about how much is all ran our electricity and water bills things that you use only children usually it's adults who need to solve these issues but these kids they carry a huge responsibility on their tiny shoulders because they are really convinced that they have to help the fosses the families because otherwise they couldn't make ends meet and many of them actually went to school back in syria but then the war happened they had to leave they had to settle in a totally new place and then once a child starts working basically it's childhood ends for certain period and or for forever maybe and then and then they're lucky if they do get
3:24 am
a chance to go to school and what it what are these chances in turkey for these syrian children are they going to the turkish schools is that what's happening to them were let's at least the goal of the sec's government they are one to get every single syrian refugee child that's the big promise into public schools by the end of a twenty twenty. but so far only. sixty percent of those kids are really having access to education that means forty percent don't have any access and this is higher than you know it's three hundred thousand to four hundred thousand children we're talking about. and of course there are a lot of obstacles the language these kids know arabic or kurdish in most of the cases but they need to know turkish in order to follow what's happening at school they need teachers they need teachers who are specialized in working with traumatized kids and where those teachers come from did you get a chance to ask me is turkey in crackdown post-coup crackdown turkey or are there
3:25 am
even teachers to do this so we try to film in a public took a school but we didn't get any any chance to do that we were denied access were you told why. we need to well it's probably also due to the current tensions between germany and turkey but on the other handle so they it's in general difficult to get access to turkish public schools so it's arced but the kids are going to school not all of them but so many of them of course some are going to school and there are some positive examples as well but i think as long as there are examples like this and this is not a single case you know find those kids everywhere in the area where we were filming they were at least we were passing at least six of those sewing workshops and every time there were children working. so you see there is amazing it's turkey doing enough to combat child labor well from my opinion no if you are
3:26 am
a state and you ban child labor it's illegal in turkey if you employ a girl or boy under the age of fifteen you're committing a crime so if this is the law the state has to enable its rights that right but of course the argument we would always hear from authorities or governors or mayors is that turkey has taken in so many refugees more than three million it's a huge huge challenge and they sometimes also don't know how to deal with it but child labor print is a huge structural problem in turkey since decades it's not only a problem for syrian children many people in turkey still think it's not a problem if children are working and it's an immigrant story and i'm glad to that that your breathing story to your audience because it's one that we can not report too much julie hunt thank you very much thanks. a story as parliament on monday started debating a bill that could soon legalize gay marriage across the country one lawmaker took
