charged visit to the middle east. and the e.u. leaders a carton meeting in brussels a two day summit dominated by the agent question of how to deal with illegal migration the problem is caused deep divisions in the european union and threatens to trigger the collapse of the german government johnson has gone as far as warning that it could split the bloc apart. the number of undocumented migrants reaching european shores has actually dropped since its peak in twenty fifteen and the issues not viewed as a crisis the e.u. says it stemmed the flow of migrants by ninety six percent but bitter hours of broken out of the last few months because some member states a simply refusing to let in rescue boats new right wing governments and demanding tighter border controls austria-hungary it's nice to rock in the czech republic and poland or to structure approach so leaders are trying to work out
8:02 pm
a solution in the form of so-called disembarkation platforms basically areas outside europe probably in north africa where migrants will be held. arge pleased at the summit in brussels for a search what are the chances of them coming up with something they can all agree on at this event. well i think a chance and funny so they can all agree on is basically nail and they've already indicated that by saying that they don't expect to have that sort of thing at all the best they can hope for is what they call bilateral solutions talks between the couple of countries we'll find out in a minute or two actually if they got anywhere today because donald tusk the head of the european council and john claude younger the head of european commission are about sick of a news conference and then after that there's going to be a series of individual countries giving press conferences as well and those two nights include countries like austria the czech republic poland slovakia all of
8:03 pm
these countries in this so-called austrian branded coalition of the willing which means countries which ones have pushed back in the cases of the central european countries send everybody back to to wherever it was that they came from against that you've got countries obviously led by germany with the support of greece and spain to some extent saying they want their own coalition of the willing which means countries which actually want to abide by the rule of law and keep allowing refugee status an asylum claim for people who they think deserve it and so you have this complete schism now between these two blocks and as you were saying an introduction the best they can probably hope for since they counts agree on much to do with doling out refugees inside different countries is better and stronger ways of keeping them out in that sense it's already looks like the moral authority hereon sides of the e.u. twenty seven might actually be winning the arguments in in in some of the man who
8:04 pm
will be most pleased with all this will be viktor orban the hungary and prime minister who only a couple of years ago was being vilified for putting up fences and saying he wanted to defend european kristie. honestly in things like this and gradually and over time more and more countries seem to be finding a way of agreeing with him and paradoxically that i mean the figures have actually gone down haven't they so why do you think this has blown up into such a big issue apart from that there's those governments appearing if you know that we talked about the right wing ones is there is there anything else that has brought this to the fore this point. well i mean on one level there is a lot of antipathy from a lot of these countries towards germany in particular who they regard as telling them how to behave and what to do enough not just to do with the now failed quota system of saying to countries you've got to take this many people we don't want to see what you've got to try and do it anyway that sort of thing the sense of being bossed around by germany it also plays into
8:05 pm
a bigger. and legal issue to do with things to do with european finances in the countries in the age of the euro zone particularly italy and greece having to absorb the largest number of refugees while imposing enormous austerity on their own people and so you then have the italians saying well your telling us that you've basically stifled our economy i mean yes you'll not taking any and any more of the refugees themselves and germany's and say well hang on we've taken almost everybody why can't anybody else help and so it's a very very difficult situation to resolve and they really can't very well and when i go to myrtle says this could be a make or break thing for the european union what she means by that is that the whole original ethos of twenty eight countries walking in step with each other ever closer union is now under threat and it is under threat and migration breaks apart then what else might they disagree on italians for example want to drop sanctions against russia which is something that most of the rest of the bloc think should be
8:06 pm
sustained and so this big crack is starting to emerge could split out into all sorts of different directions and that i think is what the center of europe is most worried about thank you very much indeed. well italy has sent a clear message to europe as we've heard that it will no longer bear the brunt of immigration with its hardline stance on rescue ships many italians are welcoming interior minister but anti immigrant rhetoric. is in sicily to find out how refugees are finding this new more hostile environment a bus from could turn your unloading into cardamon near one of europe's largest refugee camps here there is fresh refugees applying for asylum they've heard that italy's new interior minister is hostile to migrants and their right just. so what the. new just so even if. it's interesting
8:07 pm
ernest came from ghana when he was fifteen he lost his mother in libya and made his way to italy alone now a husband and father the camp has been his home for four years lawyers say these people are the lucky ones italy's new policy of turning boats away will make new arrivals almost impossible. we're going back to dean when there was no distinction between genuine refugees and economic migrants the government is now talking about preventing people from even requesting asylum or denying access based on their country of origin and this is a violation of international law italy has shut its ports to charity boats carrying rescued migrants they believe if these boats disappear migrants won't be tempted to cross the mediterranean but charity boat account for forty percent of the search and rescue operations here in testing this idea thousands could die. italy's new
8:08 pm
hardline policy is driven by mike taylor salvini a rock star of the italian right seen here in libya pushing for asylum identification centers to be set up in north africa not europe his slogan stop the invasion. local councillor and salvini supporter fabulous took me to parts of catan yehi says overrun by migrants that. if a needle. is now the biggest refugee camp in europe many times we have taken the issue to europe but it's taken salvini out to put a stop to it our coasts are being invaded and the impact of illegal immigration is particularly evident in neighborhoods like this one back at the camp a message from one refugee that this anti migrant rhetoric is dangerous to. migrants together some of us fled persecution others have come just to earn money and then return to africa we don't have a choice we came here because we were being persecuted we came to europe because
8:09 pm
the real of law is respected in africa it isn't it with these new policies italy risks accusations that it is also forgetting the rule of law and its moral obligations to those in need charlie and to al-jazeera. the captain of a rescue ship has become a symbol of division is being questioned by maltese police the m.v. lifeline unloaded more than two hundred thirty refugees in valetta on wednesday after six days stranded at sea by arguments over which country should take it in trucks or press as the latest from office capital. behind me is the m.v. lifeline impounded by dorothy's here at boilers dock. this vessel was allowed to dock here on wednesday of floating its two hundred thirty three refugees and migrants but the vessel itself is impounded and the captain is being questioned by police here the nub of the disagreement between the mission lifeline charity and or
8:10 pm
thora g.'s seems to be what the exact movements of the vessel were during the last week when it picked up these people at sea and why it didn't deliver them into the hands of libyan authorities who were prepared to take them. i spoke with the head of the charity actually who said we asked the libyans for a port of safety but a port of safety has to be an international law a real port of safety i received in an e-mail that it should be tripoli i couldn't believe that that was the end of communication with the libyans there seems to be displeasure with mission lifeline for refusing to hand these refugees or migrants over back to the libyans which is obviously what the italian government would have preferred and insisting on bringing them to a european union force of safety. at
