business news live from berlin is the german government on the verge of collapse over the issue of refugees anglo-american faces a mutiny over immigration policy led by her own interior minister this as a new poll reveals eighty six percent of germans want a tougher deportation policy for failed asylum seekers also coming up. a bleak day for world trade us president doll trump last billions in tariffs on china and beijing promises to retaliate. and running for election from jail as turkey
prepares to head to the polls one of the main opposition candidates is stuck behind bars but that's not stopping him from trying to unseat turkey's president. in goals goal or in moscow russian celebrate our dream opening to the world cup after demolishing saudi arabia five nil we'll get the latest from moscow. about the costs and welcome to the program german chancellor angela merkel is facing a mutiny in her own conservative bloc over migration policy that could threaten her hold on power merkel's interior minister a horse a haul for of the conservative bavarian c.s.u. party is openly defying her he's demanding the power to turn some migrants away at the german border merkel has rejected this idea insisting instead on finding
a joint european approach this is being seen as the most serious crisis to hit the chancellor since her new coalition government took office in march. unprecedented scenes in the german bonus talk yesterday as chancellor angela merkel was in effect threatened with open rebellion a conservative bloc in the bonus talk normally at this one but in an extraordinary move it has separate meetings on the same issues the variant conservatives of the c.s.u. versus the rest this is a says it can wait no longer to see a change in michael's migration policy. you have not my bittorrent dusty's once again we've made it clear what needs to be done what agent leigh to restore order at our borders we should take the step of turning refugees away from our borders who are already registered in another european country. or patient around biggest he had sinned c.s.u.
leader. and chancellor merkel had battled over the issue late into the night but no compromise was reached. both sides agree a european response to migration is needed but what they will face says that's taking too long merkel is still hoping for a deal with other use dates at a summit in two weeks time. to me the question of how to tackle this migration issue is a litmus test for the future and cohesion of europe it therefore needs to take every country into consideration the chancellor is putting the focus on beefing up the e.u.'s external borders in the hope of to tearing people from attempting to enter europe at. once to follow the all serene approach where external controls don't work national border checks should be reintroduced. his party says as interior minister he has already the power to implement that but that would force a confrontation with the chancellor which could threaten the government. as desperate migrants continue to cross the mediterranean the debate of what to do
with them has turned into a political showdown in berlin. for more on this d w correspondent thomas sparrow joins me from the german parliament the bundestag thomas is there an actual really realistic chance that this could spell the end of this government. i wouldn't say just yet if there's something that we've learned from her nearly thirteen years in power is that she can negotiate very well but what we can also say at the same time is that this is definitely a very significant political crisis here in germany and a very significant challenge to anglo merkel's authority and now i'm going to merkel will have to in some way find her priority over european solution at the same time make sure that she can find a solution that satisfies those who prefer a national alternative a national solution to this political crisis it won't be easy for merkel i think no one expects that to be easy for merkel in fact they expect this to be one of the most significant challenges that she has had as german chancellor now the interior
minister has long been a fierce critic of her migration policies so why is this rebellion brewing now. well in the first time because there are elections in bavaria coming up in the autumn and that's something that for the c.s.u. for the bavarian conservatives is all the people particularly important but it's also because wholesale hope is now in a position where he believes he can act as interior minister the c.s.u. now holds the interior ministry and as such they believe that they have to actually try and solve this migration problem wholesale find fact came to the interior ministry as someone as a sort of law and order politician and he sees that also as his responsibility he prefers those national measures instead of the european measures but it has to do also obviously with the elections coming up in the autumn in bavaria thomas as merkel's conservatives work through that is just a few a new poll shows that
a majority of germans want the government to take a tougher line on migration the poll by research institute in protest asked a number of questions about refugees and one very clear answer and overwhelming eighty six percent of respondents said they were in favor of a more efficient system to deport people whose asylum request had been denied. thomas what do you make of this number eighty six percent. well it obviously shows that also among the german population many want a tough line on migration a line that focuses on deporting those who are not allowed to stay there oh there were other proposals that were asked in the opinion poll for example giving refugees not necessarily money but other type of assistance for example services or making sure that those migrants without documents are not allowed to enter germany those proposals were also met with approval by a majority here in germany so it clearly shows that not only here in the german
parliament many want a tougher line on on immigration but also many among among germans many also want a tougher line so that of the shows what priorities many would like the government here should have and there are questions now on how this is affecting her popularity merkel's popularity the polls also asking the question how satisfied are you with the german government's performance and a clear majority will see that in a second almost two thirds admitted that they're dissatisfied only about a third of voters said that they're happy with the government's record. on this there's nothing vague about that one how damaging is this in the government and specifically to the chancellor. it is obviously damaging for the government the fact that many of you very critically the way the coalition is handling different issues obviously migration being one of them but it's also interesting that that same poll. approval ratings for specific politicians and i'm going to marco was still the most popular politician in germany so there's a clear difference between politicians are such on the governing coalition and it
seems the german people german people are more skeptical about the coalition of such than they are about the chancellor d w political correspondent thomas sparrow thank you very much. now to some of the other stories making news around the world and yemen at least thirty nine people have reportedly been killed and a saudi led offensive to retake a key port in the city of the saudi led coalition says it wants to drive who is the rebels from the city but who the leader has urged the rebels to resist the assault . the state of new york is suing to dissolve u.s. president charitable foundation prosecutors allege persistently illegal conduct at the nonprofit including misusing donations and supporting trump's twenty sixteen campaign trump has called the lawsuit ridiculous he's pledged not to settle the case. for the u.s. department of justice has criticized x. f.b.i.
director james comey for his handling of an investigation centering on e-mails sent by hillary clinton in a new report the department's watchdog condemns call me for insubordination and errors of judgment prior to the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election but the report did not find call me was politically biased clear evidence and watching the news still to come world cup host russia celebrate their explosive five nil win against saudi arabia at the tournament opening match we'll be talking about that and today's matches in just a few minutes. obviously a fantastic day for russia but not looking like a very good day for world trade no definitely not having several developments none of them positive let me walk you through it the use getting there terry of guns into position to head back at the u.s. says it won't read the fine the seats are free trade agreement between the e.u.
and kind of the potentially killing off more of those too late said because in another development the united states is approving plans to impose another round of tariffs on billions of dollars worth of chinese goods that second round of levies could comment to effect as soon as today friday around thirteen hundred chinese goods worth about fifty billion dollars could become subject to a twenty five percent tariff more so most of the products in question are to be found on a list published earlier this year i did on that range from slant stream tv's to cry. if parts like rotors tires turbines also are recalled like milking machinery or bulldozers and much more it's a very comprehensive wish list of u.s. industry china's health sector will also be affected drugs defense has and other medical devices also appear on the forty or so pages it's all part of trump's crackdown on what he describes as china's unfair trading practices perhaps
a surprise then that mobile phones are nowhere to be seen on that list after all they account for forty percent of chinese imports to the u.s. a signal perhaps that donald trump doesn't want ordering u.s. consumers to feel the effects of the tariffs is more the white house's latest is only the first phase of tariffs that will be imposed on chinese products the total value of the goods affected could be up to one hundred fifty billion dollars beijing had worked to reach a deal promising to buy more american soybeans and natural gas and to cut import duties on cars and some consumer goods but they warned that all deals would be off if trump's threatened tariffs went ahead in beijing on says day u.s. secretary of state might pump am met with chinese officials he said president trump still considered the u.s. trade deficit with china too high chinese foreign minister one he said there were two bombs they could go down sean you know for sure on the trade issue that mr
secretary has just mentioned in fact we are now facing two options one is cooperation and when we. the other is confrontation and lose lose we have chosen the first one and we hope the us will make the same wise choice. of course we have prepared for the second option. sure. but the latest rhetoric from the white house however is an indication that the united states is not yet considering backing down. and further developments the e.u. is hitting back at the u.s. trade tariffs european union countries have unanimously back to plan to impose import duties on two point eight billion euros worth of u.s. products this comes in response to american tariffs on the e.u. steel an element of the european tariff still need to be adopted by the european commission which meets next week they would come into force in less than
a month. and italy's agriculture minister says he will not ratify the seato free trade deal between the european union and canada john marcotte sent in iowa said other e.u. members would likely follow italy in refusing to do so the deal was signed two years ago and eliminates almost all tariffs which we in the two sides is provisionally taken effect but still must be ratified by all twenty eight e.u. members including italy the new populist government says it does not ensure sufficient protection for the country's farmers or its speciality foods like here and see why it all promises us. now let's bring in john alderman on our financial correspondent in frankfurt joe a triple blow to world trade there how is that going down with investors at the end of the trading week. well it's certainly been a very long week with a lot of news on the geopolitical front alongside central bank decisions and now
this triple threat to global trade at the end of the trading week and that's definitely a recipe for mixed reactions from investors we saw asian markets slide european markets somewhat more sanguine and i think the markets for paris for about two thirds of this now after the g. seven summit angela merkel did say that countermeasures against the u.s. steel and aluminum tariffs would be put in place today of course was a calendar day for the publication of the final list of chinese products to be terrorists by the u.s. but certainly the seeds of developmental was a reminder to investors that member states might not have as unified stance on global trade as generally assumed and that's of course adding to nervousness. christine lagarde the chief of the international monetary fund she is increasingly concerned about the most recent developments let's listen in to what she said so-called trade war driven by reciprocal increases in import tariff
gives no winner and we find generally loses on both sides the negative impact on the global economy would be serious not only the united states takes action but especially if other countries as a result were to retaliate notably those that would be most affected such as canada such as germany and other european countries now he specifically mentions european companies like germany to retaliate what are you hearing there is the appetite for its early action in the german german industry and among investors. well what everyone shares is a theory of escalation first that sort of trust and rules based world trade will be eroded in that will have knock on effects on the world economy but whether retaliation is the way to go is a more divisive issue if you take for example the issue of car car import tariffs
that trump has threatened with germany in mind some say that the pragmatic thing to do would be to take the higher import tariffs and basically cut them give trump what he wants given or give them a window to bring back to his base and therefore create goodwill in future a negotiation but there are those who say that for the rules space trade to work then everybody has to follow the rules and can't just use reasons of national security to justify tariffs because then everybody else would do the same so certainly not a simple picture here. in frankfurt thank you very much and that's all your business is back to i mean the trouble one opposition party is facing in turkey ahead of the upcoming vote they scare hard won turkey goes to the polls in just over a week's time incumbent president roger erda won may be the clear front runner but that's not stopping opposition candidates from running against him even if they're in jail the procrit ish h d p presidential candidate. was detained in november
twenty sixth seen he told the w. istanbul correspondent you leon what it's like campaigning from behind bars. oh you need not dania is a political campaign and through and through from sun up to sundown he can be found working the streets of istanbul district he's drumming up support for the program. the voters who don't cross his path are unlikely to learn much about the party's program many turkish media outlets don't report on them that they have had to put to good as individual. we don't get any airtime on turkish t.v. of the we're practically invisible and it's their broadcasters and newspapers that have reported on us but they've been shut down if see if they want to make it difficult for us because it's a little. head again george clooney we're not going to give up the. other mother to
. according to the watchdog reporters without borders more than eighty percent of turkish media are owned by companies close to president. that is particularly evident during election campaigning. for example in the last two weeks of may turkey's public broadcaster t.r.t. spent more than sixty eight hours reporting on ad months compay opposition leader who want him in jan his c.h.p. were given only six hours of air time they're all option as each party featured for just thirty minutes b.h.p. candidates. has never been shown on at. the protocol it is a sticky in particular faces many difficulties president out has effectively declared the party an enemy of the state he accuses it all spreading terrorist propaganda and having ties to the militant p.k. paid work because of this the h.d. peace presidential candidate. runs in his campaign from jail he has been in
custody for more than one and alvie is a presidential candidate standing from inside prison that's a first for turkey the e.u. and international observers have sharply criticized the government's handling. but that doesn't help him much his election campaigning has so far been limited to social media recently on twitter he asked to okies largest news broadcast as why they have never reported on his campaign but he didn't get an answer in a written interview with g w he said. there's no justification why in these critical times the media are opting to see no evil hear no evil and speak no evil and why they are serving the interests of the government. dania the h d p campaigner in istanbul such obstacles are just part of everyday life but despite the challenges he continues he says the harder life becomes for his people the harder he will work for change.
now the world cup is underway and our sports department is all over it i'm joined in the studio now by only sports staff and our correspondent jonathan crane is standing by for us in moscow jonathan let's start with you the wait for the world cup appears to have been worth it for russia a stunning day we can only imagine the scenes of celebrations we witnessed in moscow. definitely not just for the nearly eighty thousand people who were lucky enough to be inside the luzhniki stadium that behind me to see the game celebrations really across the streets of moscow across the whole country and if you'll forgive me for trusting out of football crease cliche it really was a policy atmosphere because we had the german d.j. paul van dyke performing at the fans and you can only wonder what would have happened if russia hadn't won but the fans were partying long into the night it's a really morale boosting five nail victory for them there if you contrast that to the mood before the tournament one of pessimism i was at russia training camp on
tuesday and the players were in the country to unite behind the team for the five no victory they will surely be doing that now and they certainly had every reason to be celebrating it was indeed a spectacular opening match yesterday let's take a look and see how that game unfolded. russia could not have hoped for a better start i eureka's in ski backing the first goal of the tournament to just twelve minutes on the stroke of half time it was too i substitute dennys cherish have putting beaming green on coach churches shelves face. russia might be the tournament's lowest ranked team but they certainly didn't look like it. does you've made it three i the best of the bunch came in the ninety first minute cherry chef second and early contender for goal of the tournament saudi arabia might have been something of a soft opponent but the spall tof ali was pure inspiration. for the guests elation
for the hosts. even then there was more a free kick in the dying seconds complete the russian brought delight for one certain discerning spectator saudi arabia's hopes meanwhile dashed already. disappointing for the saudis but a fantastic result for russia jonathan crane is still with us from moscow and emily is with me in studio amily just last week saudi arabia almost drew with defending world cup champions germany but they were just taken apart yesterday by the russians what happened i mean i'm always a bit wary of comparing test game results with the actual competition because so much changes and you know germany typically doesn't perform so well before big tournaments so it wasn't that surprising but saudi arabia were indeed taken to pieces it wasn't a game of super high quality but they just looked on fit they gave the russians too much space they weren't going back they looked morally broken just after the first
goal so i mean this this group was always going to be an uphill battle for them but now they really have to try to you know say face and not lose every game too high yeah meanwhile with russia jonathan they outperformed all expectations can they make it to the knockout stages. they were said to be called for than ave you have to go back to nineteen thirty four to find a bigger margin of victory in opening world cup game and on that occasion it was host italy they beat the united states seven one and then went on to win the competition now i don't think anyone is expecting russia to do the same indeed. just off said that everyone would be keeping the feet firmly on the ground they were going to go to the head so that he didn't have to pop out during his post much press conference to take a call from none other than to me a piece in passing on his congratulations so you can forgive him for a base of euphoria but he has said that this group stage for that is like a weight lifting tournament you have to do your starting weights and you gradually build up and that's what russia have to do because the matches for them will get
progressively harder they have egypt next and then they finish with you require the favorites to win the group so this is just a fast step but nonetheless a good start all the same with much to go and really we have more games coming up three in fact what can we expect. so the first game today is the real the real game in group eight egypt against uruguay or of wire favorites they have players like loose wires from barcelona and some kabbani from his share and then there's egypt where their star striker mohammed saleh he has recovered from his injury in the champions league final so hopes are high that he's going to bring them bring them far at this tournament later on in group b. morocco face iran before the real game kicks off tonight one portugal face spain portugal are the reigning european champions they have christiana rinaldo in their ranks but they weren't so convincing during the course of the euros really they had a lot of draws building up to the final they only had three actual wins over ninety minutes so the eyes are going to be on them whether they're going to perform better
at this tournament and get far and then their spain who are world cup favorites but there's been so much turmoil in their camp after their head coach. was fired earlier this week amidst this whole his nomination as a real madrid coach and there was some discussion with the spanish football federation and now fernando yaro has taken over who is actually a real madrid legend and he said he's not going to change much it's a winning team he's going to try to keep everything calm so we'll have to see how that plays out today in the first game now spain's not the only team dealing with some controversy germany also has an issue right now in terms of scandal with two players what's going on. i'm not sure germany has the issue as much as the media and maybe some fans what happened a few weeks back was. they met with the turkish president in london and there was a lot of controversy about it they handed over some scientists sure it's going to go on you know row for my president so fans weren't too happy about that but really
i think the i should be focusing on the sports on the world cup what's happening on the pitch said his turn to try to focus his players. on their performance now at the world cup and hopefully the headlines will be towards their first win ok we saw that germany's i know that you said that you don't like to compare those previous matches to world cup ones but germany perhaps didn't play so well against the saudis is there any concern at all heading into that first match on sunday. and there is some concern in germany sure not all fans are convinced that really this is the team to defend the title but again as i said earlier in the show already germany doesn't perform so well before big tournaments you might have tried out some some things you know he might have told the players be careful not to injure yourself especially if we have a look at marco voice these devastating injuries before other tournaments so you never know we really just have to wait and see how that works out. sports desk and jonathan crane who is standing by in moscow thank you both very much thank you
