the german chancellor has warned the european union's approach to refugees has the potential to split the e.u. and been addressing german parliament before leaving for a key summit in brussels at home the issue has threatened to break up the governing coalition. but. europe faces many challenges but migration could become the make or break one for the e.u. either we manage it so others in africa believe that we are guided by values and believe in multilateralism not unilateral ism or nobody will believe any longer in the system of values that has made us strong that's why it's so important. a new group of right wing governments has emerged demanding tighter border controls and new policies to cut the number of refugees coming in made up of the leaders from austria hungary italy slovakia the czech republic and poland it wants other
2:02 pm
countries to agree to a strict approach when it comes to refugees while other member states mostly from north western europe will hope to avoid the union swinging to the right it has been seen as one of the most difficult and important summits in years and with rescue boats full of refugees trying to cross the mediterranean every day finding a resolution is becoming more urgent by the minute it's cost lives large dominick in berlin rather stark warnings their anger merkel talk us through what she had to say about it. start warnings indeed but there are many people here in germany say that the e.u. is already split on how to solve the migration crisis pointing out that there is on the one side the government all germany france perhaps now the new government in spain but on the other side all manner of governments from central and eastern europe who really do not agree with this idea of europe wide solutions which
2:03 pm
involve some degree of quota number of migrants of refugees who arrive in the front line states as it were on the mediterranean coast and and then would be deported her from would not support it would then be taken to a different country perhaps to austria to hungary well those governments really don't want that to happen and so that's the thing that's the issue the crux of it is what happens to those people who arrive in one country claim asylum and then go somewhere else for years angle america's position has been to accept them in germany but now in a change of tone she says let's go back to the dublin regulations that existed in twenty fifteen before she opened the borders for the pointis jane that is not enough for many people on her side of the government here in berlin but what are the expectations then when it comes to the summit. well given the fact that you have so much so many different nuances as it were in
2:04 pm
some senses you've already heard from angela merkel saying that she does not believe a europe wide solution will emerge from this site that's not something she said today she had to admit that before the working group session of sixteen member states in brussels at the weekend so no obvious an e.u. solution is likely in this summit the question then is what sort of bilateral perhaps trilateral agreements will there be between the germans and with other countries who are the areas the places where these these migrants these refugees make landfall you might see something there we've heard the ten point plan being put forward by the italian prime minister certainly that's something that he presented to e.u. leaders in brussels on sunday and when he left that meeting said he was happy with the way things have developed so look out for something on vats sort of regard the other thing to say here this e.u. summit not just about migration there's also the thorny issue of the e.u. budget and i'm going to merkel and president michel they've announced that a new independent e.u. budget but even that is opposed by the visa grad group by those countries you named
2:05 pm
in the in your introduction join the hungary and the poles they really don't like that so you can see there's all manner of different issues where there is really serious disagreement facing these leaders in brussels in the next few hours let's leave it there dominic cain thank you. as specialist u.s. military team has joined the search for twelve young footballers and their coach missing in a flooded cave complex in northern thailand a group of around thirty joins a british cave diving team and tie navy seals who are already involved in the search but rescue efforts are being slowed down by constant rainfall scott had as more 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 lightened so 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
2:06 pm
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 into a truly 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 and they believe there's speculation that the cim 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 remove him 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 jimmy u.s.

defense secretary james mattis has been meeting with the south korean counterpart in seoul 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 macha says the suspension will increase the chances for peace as ollie. north. on thursday matter 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
2:08 pm
give up an inch of territory in the south china sea edge and right as well 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
2:09 pm
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 that 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 britain's prince william is visiting the site in occupied east jerusalem on his final day of his middle east the site of the day paying respect to

his great grandmother prince alice's grave she helped rescue jews. during the holocaust prince william is also visiting one of most important holy sites for muslims the. mosque compound it's the first official visit by a member of the royal family since the british occupation of palestine ended in one thousand nine hundred forty eight hairy forces as the story from the occupied east jerusalem. so the church of the holy circle is the last official engagement of prince william's visit the third of the holy sites cities was it it here in occupied east jerusalem kensington palace made it very clear tried to choreograph this to the maximum that it could as a nonpolitical event but of course this visit coming seventy years after the end of the british mandate the first official rule visit to israel has been one which has been politically sensitive that is potentially why the palace was so keen and british government is so keen to pay significant attention to the palestinians
2:11 pm
during the course of this visit defining in the role itinerary this old city of jerusalem as part of the occupied palestinian territories east jerusalem itself and as well as that in his dealings with the palestinian president mahmoud abbas in ramallah he spoke of both our countries in his initial remarks despite the fact of course the united kingdom does not at least yet to recognize palestine as a state saying would only do so when it became helpful towards peace he also said that the palestinian people had not been forgotten the united kingdom stood with them as they work towards peace that was something that he also said the united kingdom stood with the israeli people during his in gage's in tel aviv there has been some criticism both of the definition of east jerusalem as occupied by is the israeli israeli politicians and the israeli culture minister has said that the decision not to meet with israel with jerusalem or others there here in jerusalem was somewhat impolite so he's had to negotiate these political fault lines very

chancellor has warned the european union's approach to refugees has a potential to split the e.u. angela merkel has addressed parliament on the issue later she'll head to brussels for a key summit with e.u. leaders hoping to agree and e.u. wide approach on refugees it's. u.s. defense secretary james mattis has been meeting in south korean counterpart and solve the two held talks on washington's decision to suspend joint military exercises earlier matches was in beijing discussing territorial disputes in the south china sea way was told that china would not give up an inch of territory. britain's prince william is visiting holy sites in occupied east jerusalem on the final the middle east he started the day paying respects of these great grandmother prince alice is grave its first official visit by a member of the world family since the british occupation of palestine ended in one thousand nine hundred forty eight u.k. intelligence committee has officially published two previously leaked reports
2:16 pm
shedding light on the mistreatment of detainees the seven year old consolidated guidance document as it's currently known highlights hundreds of cases witnessed by you came ploys in which detainees rights have been violated the report suggests that greater clarity is needed to make sure ministers did not authorize actions which could lead to torture paul brennan joins us live now from london what more you hearing about this paul. well it's a quite glaring spotlight on the behavior of british intelligence agents in two periods first of all the period from two thousand and one to two thousand and ten and then a second report which looks at what the situation is from twenty ten onward to the current day and if you look at the situation immediately after nine eleven it's a pretty pretty damning picture i mean it we're looking at more than two hundred cases where u.k. personnel continued to supply questions to intelligence officers of
2:17 pm
a third party country despite knowing that there was most likely physical mistreatment of those detainees going on there were twenty eight cases the u.k. agreed to rendition being performed by other countries most particularly the united states and the report author said it is difficult to comprehend how those at the top of office did not recognize a pattern of mistreatment in our view the u.k. tolerated actions that we regarded as in excusable really strong words there now joining me for an analysis of this these two reports as baroness shami chakrabarti she's the shadow attorney general represents the opposition party the labor party here in the u.k. . what do you make the first thing to say is that dominic grieve he chaired this inquiry the intelligence and security committee is a conservative but nonetheless one of the most well respected who is on all sides of politics in the u.k. parliament and i think that he and his committee have done an excellent job but
2:18 pm
within certain constraints so for example this committee ultimately answers to the prime minister and can only publish such material as is allowed by number ten downing street and the committee itself said that it wasn't allowed to interview the individual witnesses from the agencies and bouts of the problem and so i think that it's very important now that we have a full blown gigia. inquired they said a judge can actually call those witnesses and demand to be attendance of individuals because you know there will still be on the answer questions on the pulse of victims of torture and on the part of the british public i think secondly and this is equally damning the committee talked about present guidance this is guidance it's in operation even today in the nation to how agencies deal with detainees and intelligence that may have been gained by to the committee points to
2:19 pm
a lack of clarity about what ministers may i'm a not authorized ministers seem to have varying views about what is and isn't allowed and that is really problematic is what's known about the past that's about what might be happening now and what might happen in the future so once more i think we must have this judge led laurie to build upon the ground work of the i.s.c. and finally i would say this in two thousand and thirteen britain's coalition government of the time conservative coalition government passed a piece of legislation which was called the justice and security act and that allowed for secret court hearings in in cases against the security agencies and i think that's really problematic and and that act needs to be reviewed in light of all of this as well we haven't got time for a second gretchen i'm sorry but you can see the in many ways this these two reports on the aftermath of them before from almost as many questions as they've answered
2:20 pm
in all of this and the fallout is going to continue throughout the day and we'll have more later thank you for that paul the lawyers representing the united arab emirates are preparing before the united nations highest court at the hague has taken the u.a.e. to the international court of justice accusing it of violating human rights as a result of the blockade imposed on doha representative says out their arguments during the first day of hearings on wednesday. joins us live from the hague what's the legal team being. saying. they were team has on a critically denied all of the accusations levied against the country by cattle earlier on in the week it is the knowledge that there has been any policy to expel cattery nationals from the us or anything that led to the riots of country nationals being undermined including their inability to be able to access their own property or assets including access to the health care education and legal support

2:22 pm
