protesters after some tried to force their way through to government buildings. it had started as a peaceful day of demonstrations the crowd swelled by thousands of remaining ex-pats. they'd return to voice anger what they say has forced them to leave the country low wages a lack of opportunity and above all government corruption. but what i'd like to change first the corrupted leaders in romania then the living standard a decent one. right age and it was one of them is that the government must grant us the possibility to be a normal country i came from bilbao in spain just for this protest of romanians living abroad we're fed up we must be united a victory for romania and there were many. protesters are demanding that the ruling social democratic party resign and call early elections earlier this year

agreed to take back anything migrants who reach many despite being registered first in spain. leaders have been addressing the media so let's get the. just all this with me now in the studio our chief political editor mckayla and standing by in spain journalist jaime velasquez welcome to both of you let me start first of all here in berlin with mckayla this migration deal with spain so important for chancellor merkel what she's been saying about it while she was actually also rectally why is it so important because it affects so few people and an estimate of just a couple whole week if anybody at all and her answer was that it clearly says that spain and germany see eye to eye that they've both believe that migration is something that needs to be tackled. as a pan european issue and not just states going it alone and well it's a very interesting line of argument that because she herself was against doing individual deals she wanted to go for the whole thing the big thing the europeans
have buson and not have to do individual deals she got pressure from her own interior minister over that and there you go so the big question now is will germany be able to get similar deal or even best the one with its city in greece those are two press appoints for what is known as secondary migration those migrants who register elsewhere in europe and then come to germany ok because thanks for that turning to jaime in spain now what is the spanish perspective on this migrant return deal. well i think for spain especially for but there are signs that this is war. strategy i think that this is something that merkel in germany needed something to give to. in germany on the borders american government in germany. for spain if all the issues that are more important like mainly resources for them to manage the.
war there your sense of want to address the situation in spain. agreement with america can work for the tyrant or and i'm sick of that right spain because they know that they are not going to manage to get to to germany or they go to germany that will be sent back to spain and it's not a very attractive country. for them to settle so for for maybe the asylum seekers that can be a deterrent which is going to compass manage the influx of migrants. over there and at the same time i think that for better sanchez and spain it's not the main problem. seekers are not big amount of people arriving to the coast it has to do more with. african migrants where
there really a deal with the european union and climate just briefly you know we've been told that spain is getting nothing from germany for excepting this deal is that really the case briefly if you make. well i mean. it's have been reported germany will be. forced to. take. signals that manage to. show demonstrate. in german usually they already. i mean family germany they will be able to apply for asylum. began to refuse even in germany so this is what i believe. is reporting. movement yes ok back to mccain they are here in berlin also very briefly i mean you are beginning to
outline that this is a symbolic thing really for chancellor merkel is that more of a signal that you sending by going to spain speaking personally with petro centrist was that i mean this was a meeting during both of their holidays and they clearly want to demonstrate that they stand in seeking a european wide solution but in terms of what spain would get back i mean as a country a major country of entry that's already seen more migrant survive on its source up until now than it did the entire past here it's becoming all the more important that the german chancellor will push for countries to be compensated for these costs in this city we remember that day there was talk that there might be some kind of unitive action in terms of funding cuts for countries like hungary well that's completely off the table now what the line that the germans house is pushing now is to actually see countries compensation for what's in that upcoming european union budget so it's kind of more the long haul where spain sees that it might get some more support in terms of
a european wide solution if not that at least the upcoming budget ok mckayla cooper here in berlin home of alaska's in spain many thanks to both of you. we're going to switch now to some sports news french champions probably kicking off their to. advents against call tomorrow sunday with german coach thomas tools in charge of the french champions p.s.g. will be able to call on the world's most expensive footballer neymar as they aim for a repeat and i'm not even mentioning to date sensation and world cup winner kilian also part of the p.s.g. team now despite all that talent the former don't want coach field his side are a long way from reaching their full potential. there is a lot to do for our structure and the game for our for our intensity in the game and for that we have to improve is good that it starts now but we we have to focus on an every single day we have to use the time because there is so little
