a barrel why is argentina again turning to the i.m.f. for help now we bring you the stories the economic world we live in counting the cost on al-jazeera. european leaders get ready to meet to try to find a solution to the refugee crisis but they are why divisions on the issue. with china people onboard is allowed to dock in most of the almost a week at sea. i'm jane doesn't this is al jazeera live from also coming up china says it won't give up even an inch of its territory in the pacific as the u.s. defense secretary meets president xi jinping in beijing. and in thailand rain
continues to hamper the search for a group of teenagers stuck in a flooded cave. leaders will meet in a few hours to try to resolve divisions over the block's policy on refugees which has threatened to split the union in recent days european commission president donald tusk has traveled to austria and hungry two nations lobbying for stricter controls to try to pave the way for compromise of the divide has been triggered by the emergence of new right wing governments they want tighter border controls within the union and new policies to cut the number of refugees coming in aside from austria and hungry italy poland the czech republic and slovakia are also demanding changes on the other side of the table many presidents and prime ministers from northwest europe. headed by germany's angela merkel and france's
a man your mark on they want the current system to be largely man tamed with rescue boats full of refugees trying to cross the mediterranean every single day finding a resolution is becoming more urgent by the minute and germany's chancellor is addressing m.p.'s just before she joins opposite number in the eve for that summit in brussels let's cross live now to dominic kane in berlin what will she be telling dominic. well jane the point here is that she's briefing m.p.'s about what she intends to do for them as it were at the e.u. summit taking place in brussels also should be talking about the nato summit that comes up in july but specifically regarding the e.u. two really prime issues for the machall today first one as you've been mentioning migration this idea of more border calls on the border controls or not tight immigration rules or not and then also another problem for her is this new euro
zone budget that she announced with president mccann here in in germany last week there are those in in her coalition from her friends as it were the bavarian christian social union you don't really like her approach on immigration not very keen on her approach to do with the eurozone either so that is why this statement she's making to m.p.'s will be followed avidly and when it comes to migrants and refugees and the policies that threaten to split the e.u. i mean you know some countries want them some countries don't how do they reach middle ground here. well that's that is the vexed question isn't it because she's been trying to patch up alliances to form bilateral agreements trilateral agreements multilateral agreements she's tried for a european solution and it seems to be rebuffed by several of the states that you mentioned in your introduction jane specifically that visa greggory element that's
the element of central europe the czech republic slovakia hungary poland they really don't agree with angle america's approach that they're more in tune with her but very an ally for the variant party the c.s.e. which controls the interior ministry here federally they want to see border controls they don't want migrants to come into their countries they don't want anything to do with the idea of e.u. wide solution where they would have to accept a proportion of migrants of refugees as part of the an e.u. ideal so that's a. how does she as it were square that circle and the final point to make here remember proviron allies the c.s. you forced her into a sort of compromise where she said she'd find some kind of solution by the e.u. summit by the time the e.u. summit concludes tomorrow so that's what that's how high the stakes are for her right now dominic thank you well earlier on wednesday more than two hundred
refugees reached land after being stuck at sea for six days the charity ship lifeline docked in malta but only after eight countries agreed to take a share of the migrants john seraphina's reports from valetta. after six days at sea the lifeline finally came to dock at the letter but also to be impounded the multis government says it is not registered as the search and rescue ship has fails to obey the orders of the italian coast guard and often switched off its transponder to disguise its position raising suspicions that the ship could be deliberately helping smugglers the head of mission lifeline says italian authorities opens the investigation against it and suspects political motives under the new anti migration government in rome because the lifeline operated without problems last year we started in the last year and in september.
we were starting here. and we had a fight we had five missions with this board last year and rescued five hundred forty nine people for the two hundred thirty three people from sub-saharan countries on board it was the end of an ordeal seven european union members agreed to help malta with their asylum claims that agreement persuaded the maltese government to allow the lifeline to dock. the lifeline six day odyssey ended here at boiler war the refugees and migrants had carried will have their asylum interviews in europe but will thora to say this is an individual arrangement there's no guarantee of safe harbor for future shiploads italy's refusal to accept search and rescue ships has opened a new rift in the e.u. it's twenty seven leaders a broadly divided between two camps those who believe in collective action and a growing insurgency that says the e.u. needs to push its defense out with creating process and camps in africa and the
middle east allowing no one to cross these waters multis premier says the hardliners are attempting to politicize a practical issue i think it's it's surely a situation where there were a member states who showed that for the values of europeans. are not something to be found just in the treaties but that we act i don't think it's all about. grandstanding and. high flying political. experience it's thought how we act cooperation. and how we manage the situation solidarity is certainly what these multis teenagers have in mind when they think of europe i think they should be divided by a different kind. so we don't have much coming here anymore i thought was it is as small a way. but not all european countries feel they're in the same boat jumps are all
plus al-jazeera the letter. u.s. defense secretary james mattis has been meeting with his south korean counterpart in solve the two held talks on washington's decision to suspend joint military exercises which have long angered north korea that happened during the recent summit between donald trump and kim jong un matzoh says the suspension will increase chances for peace. or. early on thursday matters was in china's capital for talks on regional security territorial disputes in the south china sea and the presence of u.s.
troops in south korea were the main issues but china made it clear it would not give up an inch of territory in the south china sea adrian brown has more from beijing. well james mattis said he was here to in his words take the measure of china's strategic ambitions during the photo opportunity before their closed door meetings both sides issued brief statements and it was then the president xi jinping said that china would never concede give an inch of its territory he also said to sort of mollify his guest the china didn't want to create global chaos and would pursue a path of peaceful development that's often a phrase that chinese leaders use on occasions like this both sides apparently discuss the need to maintain military cooperation but the timing of this meeting is unfortunate because the united states is holding a big naval exercise of hawaii at the moment involving the militaries of twenty five other countries china was supposed to have taken part in this exercise but
china's invitation was rescinded by the united states in part because of what china's been doing in the south china sea now the united states has referred constantly to the fact that china has been deploying surface to air missiles on the islands it's been building up and it's also accused china in the past of reneging on promises not to militarize this vast basin of water but china's response is simple it claims sovereignty over all of the south china sea and therefore says it is simply protecting its sovereignty it's not thought that the two sides discussed trade of course trade is the principal point of friction between washington and beijing right now although president xi jinping did say that the relationship between the united states and china was one of the most important relationships in the world right now a specialist u.s.
military team has joined the search for twelve young footballers and their coach have been missing in a cave in northern thailand since saturday their grip of around thirty joins a british cave diving team and time navy seals who are already involved in the set scott had asthma from outside the cave in chiang rai. heavy rain overnight between wednesday and thursday brought the water level in the cave system to its highest level yet but now that on thursday morning the rain has light to the water level has retreated a bit but the pumping systems are still sitting idle you can see a lot of the hosing over my shoulder now on wednesday morning they're putting hundreds of meters of a hose in there trying to go deeper into this cave system that has stopped that is halted because of that heavy rain overnight on wednesday and now they're waiting to see how the conditions go here on thursday even though the rain has stopped now part of the problem is yes the water level but also the water is very muddy now this is turned in through the international operation we have a team from the united states and from the united kingdom here as well as from laos
they're going to provide their expertise to try to push further into the cave system no right now they're about three kilometers in they believe there's speculation the team and their coach might have retreated to a chamber that's about five to six kilometers and that's why you see a lot of this hose behind me because they hope to further move in now while that's going on while that's on idol on hold i should say they're also serving the area on the outside trying to find a fourth chimney a fourth tunnel upward tunnel to get into they found three but they were impassable so that's where the focus is right now and as the day goes on we'll see if they can get these pumps back moving and also if they find that fourth chimney still ahead on al-jazeera prince william is concluding his middle east tour with a visit to the religious sites. that's the u.n. says the human cost of the fighting and maybe fall worse than previous sieges in syria.

mother and younger brother still do his mother doesn't want him buried on the roof she says first his time on the roof was what led him to kill himself and he doesn't feel he can rest in peace there and second because he thinks one day she'll live somewhere other than the route i would like to be able to visit his grave in order she want his body sent to iran the country her family fled and where she feels she could never return cremation isn't an option either because it goes against her religion and her son's tribal seize on his mother sister came by boat to australia before it started its policy a permanent deportation to nuru i want to see her in person my name is but it's just a stay in the free and my sister only see him see is buddy and this is terrible i'm worried about my sister and. her little size twelve he has twelve years on and they're

holy sites in occupied east jerusalem on the final day of his middle east start of the day paying respects at his great grandmother princess alice is grave it helped rescue jews during the holocaust is also visiting one of the most important holy sites for muslims the al aqsa mosque compound it's the first official visit by the royal family since the british occupation of palestine ended in one hundred forty eight kensington palace as emphasize the prince's trip is not political let's go over to harry for city is in the occupied east jerusalem what's the plan for today harry. well he has only so really dean at the compound known to the temple mount as a tunnel mount to jews he will then be heading to the western wall. jews pray at the at the wall and then to be coming here to the holy circle catcher. of course throughout christianity is the place where jesus christ was crucified and laid to
rest and indeed rose again and so this is obviously full of religious significance but it's also perhaps the most political day of this visit because in the official program from the british government this was referred to as part of his visit to the occupied palestinian territories something of course that israel sees very differently and as well as that this is a year of extreme contention over jerusalem after the adult front decoration on december sixth last year of jerusalem being israel's capital is in the view of the united states and more recently the moving of the us embassy to jerusalem and this was a very contentious time to make this visit so for all that comes in power says that this is not political obviously it has the potential to be viewed that way british diplomats will tell you that they've viewed this as of the seventy years after the british mandate ended in one thousand forty eight this was the right time for the first official visit and so to sort of balance that out it does seem that he has been paid. particular attention to the palestinians he went to meet mahmoud abbas
yesterday in ramallah spoke of both our countries in his opening remarks of course britain doesn't yet recognize palestine as a state it says it would do so at a later stage when it seems helpful towards the peace process in britain's view and as well as that he gave a speech at the british consulate in east jerusalem last night in which he said the palace could allison's had not been forgotten he said the united kingdom stood with the palestinians in the path towards peace similar language they used at towards the israelis the night before in tel aviv so there are very significant little calculations here and it does seem that he's tried and perhaps successfully so far to walk the political fault lines as delicately as possible thank you. attacks on for medical centers in syria have killed thirty two people including ten children the strikes were carried out by pro-government forces in the rebel
