elect. and at least fifteen people die in the latest fire to consume the kenyan capital's largest open air market. welcome to the program our top story italy is ramping up the pressure on its european partners to reach common ground on how to deal with migrant arrivals its prime minister has reportedly blocked the adoption of a joint statement at a tense summit in brussels migration issues cause deep divisions in the european union and even threatens to trigger the collapse of the german government chancellor angela merkel has gone as far as warning that it could split the block apart with a number of undocumented migrants reaching european shores is actually drop since its peak in two thousand and fifteen and the issue is no longer viewed as a crisis the e.u. says it stem the flow of migrants by ninety six percent but bay so rouse of broken out in the last few months. because some member states is simply refusing to let

rescue boats in new right wing governments are now demanding tighter border controls austria-hungary italy slovakia the czech republic and poland all want a stricter approach so leaders are trying to work out a solution in the form of so-called disembarkation platforms areas outside europe probably in north africa where migrants will be held lawrence lee reports now from brussels. the european union is in trouble and they although it's the italians are now siding with the hungarians and austrians in the front against migration the greeks are trying to keep up a spirit of unity with the spanish and the french in the country trying to keep it all from falling apart is germany that chancellor had already spelt out the danger to the entire block in a speech before she arrived or but feel the whole of 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're guided by values and
10:03 pm
believe in multilateralism not unilateralism or nobody will believe any longer in the system of values that is may destroy. given that there's no possible way anymore that the bloc can find a united position on sharing refugees are now having to resort to arrangements between individual countries prepared to help so for example greece which has already failed to find accommodation for many who fled from turkey says it will take more from germany to ease the political pressure on merkel from inside her own coalition many are talking about crisis we're talking about numbers that at the moment are more or less eighty percent less than it was it was last year so we're talking about numbers that are perfectly manageable we shouldn't get into a panic state of minds our policies in the last year or so have started to produce results you know they need to be sustained and it is extremely important that we do this in cooperation and partnership with our friends in the countries of origin
10:04 pm
transit in particular in africa we're investing a lot in africa now member states need to do the same but what they're really struggling with is finding external countries which are prepared to act as holding centers albania was suggested but it is resistant so are african countries and as usual the question of helping troubled nations so that people don't have to become migrants was barely mentions it's worth remembering that the founding principle of the entire european project was and remains ever closer union and yet migration threatens to break that now because many countries either don't have the money or lack the political will to help anymore there is now a battle on for the heart and soul of the european union. this isn't a refugee crisis it's really a crisis about the rule of law and humanitarian standards in the part of the world which claims to be the most moral does it do its people want to be that anymore
10:05 pm
these are big questions with no satisfactory solutions. and lawrence joins us now live now from brussels so italy blocking a final statement any progress on breaking the deadlock. well know it's no clearly not in you know as bad as we thought things were and as big as the schism really inside the european union we've got even more evidence of it now tonight a good two hours ago now there was supposed to have been a news conference between the presidents of the european council and the european commission in which we assume they're going to issue a joint communique on behalf of the entire block on issues to do with with trade and defense remember not only migration talking about here they've also been talking about what their joint approach should be to america and donald trump who was launch a trade war against europe and what they will do in response to that it turns out that italy use its veto power to block that communique and so they had to cancel
10:06 pm
their news conference we think that the reason why italy is blocked that isn't necessarily because it's completely in favor of trump and doesn't want to stop a trade war happening but we assume that it's because italy is holding out for some source of great a deal to its benefits on migration and therefore won't sign anything else until it's happy with whatever deal the might get hammered out over dinner tonight and into tomorrow around migration but it just shows you the extent to which these countries which are now in open revolt against the european center led by italy and austria and obviously with the express backing of hungary and the central european countries the extent to which they're prepared to say we're not listening to you anymore at all never mind some sort of european finesse deal where you brush aside the differences and get on with things as if he's busy usual that's all gone now and the personal is the most pressure on overwhelmingly is angular merkel the german chancellor because she'd been given until the end of friday to come up with
10:07 pm
a solution on migration that was satisfactory to her junior coalition partner and she's only now got one day left to do that and they made absolutely clearly no progress whatsoever. at this summit so far that's right in great detail at stake here for the german chancellor what then is the plan for the second day of the summit on friday. well i mean overwhelmingly the got to translate this migration issue well because if it is just it blanketed everything there are other things that they've been meaning to talk about imposing a reform of the euro zone which is very important to countries like greece and italy because they've been saddled with enormous amounts of debts and austerity that the demand of the european central bank and the german governments they can't organize any of those things until clearly they've got a migration bill is satisfactory to the italians as well there's obviously the other deal of breck's it which in in any other time you'd think would be quite
10:08 pm
important that's been pushed right down to the bottom of the agenda partly at least because the british still don't have any position for the e.u. twenty seven to discuss but all these things are pretty small now compared to the overwhelming problem of migration and what it's doing to the cage of the inside european union all right thank you very much from brussels aren't slay the captain of a rescue ship that's become a symbol of e.u. division is being questioned by maltese police the m.v. lifeline unloaded more than two hundred thirty refugees in the letter on wednesday after six days stranded at sea is a members argued over which country should take it in john's or up list has the latest from wall to capital. behind me is the m.v. lifeline impounded by multi-source dorothy's here at boilers dock in this vessel was allowed to dock here on wednesday offloading its two hundred thirty three refugees and migrants but the vessel itself is impounded and the captain is being
10:09 pm
questioned by police here the nub of the disagreement between the mission lifeline charity and or thorough seems to be what the exact movements of the vessel word 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 ask 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 email 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 port of safety. opposition
