a slick which way it is heading. the german chancellor says she's optimistic that she can form a coalition government after almost four months of political unrest since the elections were held in september talks of resumed in berlin between angela merkel's christian democrats and the social democrats a possible sicking point is the refugee crisis and whether to allow the relatives of immigrants to join them in germany is covered. i think we can do it we will work very quickly very intensively that's what we set out to do and you always think about what people in germany are expecting all of us always hope that politics will solve problems and create the framework for people to live well in our country i am optimistic about these talks but i also know that there is a lot of work ahead of us in the coming days we are willing to take on the work. live now to our correspondent david chaytor who's in berlin and david essentially these talks about talks but nonetheless they're still being described as critical.
5:07 pm
yes they are critical as there would be in a situation like this in post-war politics in germany where there's been a caretaker government for coming up to almost four months now so something has got to be done and as you say these are talks to explore the areas where official and formal talks could take place that's why there's going to be a media blackout over the next five days or they hope to impose a media blackout so they're not constantly pairing journalists questions about the issues that are dividing them but there are strong issues which do divide them and one of the main ones of course as you mentioned is the immigrant question with their loud immigrant family members to join them now we don't know exactly where the red lines will be and the leader of the social democrats martin schultz said there will be no red lines and merkel's sister party in bavaria said that they were
5:08 pm
in high spirits about the prospects over the next five days but you've got to see that essentially the social democrats have gained nothing a lecture really they've received a lot of damage by being part of the previous grand coalition and even if they come to agreement in the next five days the social democrats will have a party delegation on january the twenty first and the members will have to prove it's even that has to go through another hurdle so we're far from over with this crisis in a crisis it most certainly is ok david chase life for us in ballin. now aid agencies say eighty thousand more display syrian civilians have arrived in italy province within the last three weeks these latest arrivals come from the hummer region a tense city is being built for newcomers very close to the turkish border turkey's

5:10 pm
officer with egypt's intelligence and it research its stance on jerusalem has not changed meanwhile jordan says the arab league will seek international recognition of a palestinian state after president trump's decision on jerusalem some members of the organization met in amman to damien's protested after the u.s. president recognized jerusalem as the capital of israel mohammed germ jhoom is our correspondent in ramallah in the occupied west bank. what a report like this does here is it really sort of solidifies and confirms to palestinians on the ground here their worst fears that being that you know there's been a sense that since donald trump made the decision to recognize drew slim as the capital of israel that there has been a far more resoundingly silence from the arab world than would have initially been
5:11 pm
expected yes there have been public condemnations by arab leaders that's all true but there has been a sense here that behind the scenes many of these arab leaders of any of these governments. realize that this is something that is probably going to go forward and that they're not going to keep talking about it and keep trying to raise the issues so i expect that in the coming hours we will be hearing more once this report from the new york times in the denial from the egyptian government becomes more widely disseminated. in the occupied west bank this meeting which was held in amman has adjourned and what we expect is that another meeting is going to take place by the full arab league in the coming weeks maybe the next month month and a half and that there will be a more forceful statement coming from there but all of this being said the fact of
5:12 pm

5:23 pm
a part of our preparations that we do but every other olympic committee has also had the same measures in place so we're working to ensure that everything is in place in time for the games. but an even more unpredictable factor is mother nature forecast at temperatures on the day of the opening ceremony could make it one of the coldest in thirty years and the stadium has no roof a deliberate design to save time and money officials say to counter the cold they're installing when she and will give out hot packs and blankets to spectators . this is a heart attack a pocket sized portable heater to give it a good shake the chemicals inside react this package generates heat their last for at least ten hours put in your pocket you hands out warm and toasty. for those willing to brave the cold it's now easier to get to the venue with a new high speed train from seoul to p.r. china. south korea also plans to use the upcoming on the pics to showcase what it

5:25 pm
infant and as john hendren reports from washington mr trump's latest attacks on the author michael wolff have overshadowed his policy agenda. and i did a quick interview with him a long time ago having to do with an article this book clearly has donald trump rattled the suggestion in fire and fury the cabinet members and allies to question trump's intelligence and his fitness for office have gotten under the president's skin the book has driven a wedge between trump and his one time closest adviser steve bennett but i don't know this man i guess sloppy steve brought him into the white house quite a bit and it was one of those things that's why sloppy steve is now looking for a job as republican leaders met the president to discuss their legislative agenda for twenty eight eighteen trump began his day with a barrage of morning tweets he wrote throughout my life my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being like really smart and he said that winning the
5:26 pm
presidency qualifies him as not smart but genius in a very stable genius at that in defending himself against the allegations in this book president trump was knocked off message and it steve bannon says he's lost his stuff media mogul rupert murdoch calls him an idiot and staffers describe him as a semi literate fool but what the republicans who met with trump on saturday wanted to talk about with their plans for twenty eight teen and immigration reform it was candid it donald trump signature campaign promise and we are building a wall on the southern border we need safety we need cameras and i will have mexico pay for that wall it turns out he might have that half right the administration's plan for an immigration overhaul would spend eighteen billion dollars over ten years and add five hundred five kilometers to an existing border wall with mexico and the u.s. congress would pay for the bill is expected to restore some protection for the so-called dreamers children of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the u.s.
5:27 pm
by their parents trump recently rescinded an obama era rule protecting them but democrats fear the new immigration funds could be used to deport dreamers who registered for the program or their families they don't have resources. to deport eight hundred thousand dreamers and it's not at all clear that the information at the dreamer's volunteered to the government to establish their right to be legally work at work and otherwise could be used to identify and detain and then deport the dreamers but immigration was not the top question trump addressed on saturday john hendren zero washington all right let's go to the west coast of the united states now on the largest animals on the planet and giant ships are on a collision course literally dozens of blue whales are killed every year in shipping lanes off the coast of california and now scientists are looking at ways to develop a warning system for ships crews rob reynolds reports now from santa barbara. the

blue whale is an all inspiring creature the largest animal that has ever lived they can weigh one hundred thirty six thousand kilos and stretched thirty three meters from nose to tail me live from eighty to one hundred in ten years but in the santa barbara channel even blue whales are no match for giant cargo ships when ships hit whales whales die there are about eighty endangered whales that are killed every year ago along the coast of north western north america and that's a lot of whales for some of these whales that are quite rare in these populations we really think that that road kill is inhibiting the recovery of slowing down the recovery of these whales commercial whaling reduced blue whales to about one percent of their or original number before killing them was banned by an international agreement in one nine hundred sixty six whales population is increasing worldwide but given their slow reproductive cycle scientists and
5:29 pm
government officials are concerned about their survival we're at a point now where we have a chance to bring blue whales back from the brink of extinction we need to find the ways to slow ships down along the california coast researchers with the university of california and the buying off ocean initiative are working on a technologically sophisticated new way old warning system and a radio a visual surveillance hydrophones thermal imaging and data crunching all that information comes together to be alert that says hey ship's watch out today is a bad day for whales please slow down if the ships build in two to four hours of their transit to accommodate for slower the slow speed zone to protect the whales then we can achieve what we're trying to without regulation the government agency responsible has asked shipping companies to voluntarily cut their speed and even offered modest cash rewards for those who will do so but nevertheless ninety
5:30 pm
percent of all. ships that transit these whale rich waters go full speed ahead in shipping like any other business time is money no vessel master wants to hit a well it's a tragic thing when it does happen and we do take steps to try and avoid it but the industry opposes mandatory speed limits in blue whale territory what we would like to see is the continuance of voluntary programs in order to collect the necessary data to inform that decision making process what's known already is this unless the ship slow down more of these magnificent animals will become road kill rob reynolds al-jazeera santa barbara. take a look at the top stories here it out several pakistani political groups including some blacklisted by the government have been holding
