this is news coming to you live from berlin is the german government on the verge of collapse over the issue of refugees. faces a rebellion over immigration policy led by our own interior minister but mechelle insists the issue has to be solved at the european level also coming up. and running for an election from shady as to press to head to the polls one of the mean opposition candidates is stuck behind bars but that's not stopped him campaigning to unseat president. and trade discord between the world's two largest
economies u.s. president donald trump slaps billions in talents and china beijing promises to retaliate. in the next thirty minutes goes good north in moscow russia celebrate a dream opening to the world cup off the trash in saudi arabia five we have more on that and today's a matches coming up later. on the unwelcome i'm. german chancellor angela merkel is facing a challenge to us in a serious challenge to a party with an own conservative bloc over refugee policy which could threaten her hold in power make us interior minister horst hoffa from the conservative vote.
verin c.s.u. party is openly defying he wants to implement a silkworm asta plan for migration under which some refugees will be turned away at the german border mechelle has rejected the idea insisting instead on finding a joint european approach. unprecedented scenes in the german buddhist yesterday its chancellor angela merkel was in effect threatened with open rebellion her conservative block in the bundestag normally acts as one but in an extraordinary move it held separate meetings on the same issue the bavarian conservatives of the c.s.u. versus the rest the c.s.u. says it can no longer wait to see a change in machall migration policy. again we've made it clear what needs to be done more urgently to restore borders we should take the stand turning refugees away from who are already registered in another european country. or.
c.s.u. leader host and chancellor merkel have battled over the issue late into the night but no compromise was reached both science agree a european response to migration is needed but says that's taking too long mankell is still hoping for a deal with other e.u. states 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's means into consideration the chancellor is putting the focus on beefing up the e.u.'s xterm borders in the hope of deterring people from attempting to enter europe at all. wants to allow the austrian approach where x. journal controls don't work national border checks should be reintroduced his party says as interior minister he already has the power to implement that but that might
force a confrontation with the chancellor which could threaten the government. as desperate migrants continue to cross the mediterranean the debate about what to do with them has turned into a political showdown in berlin. for more on the story did the current spawn and thomas power joins me from the jail in bali what's the bundestag tomas is the german government really facing a threat of collapse at the moment. well if there's one thing that we know from in all her time in power is her resilience so i wouldn't describe it just yet as a government that is on the verge of collapse where you can see on the other hand that this is a very serious challenge for the german government and a very serious challenge also for angela merkel's authority and that makes this charge for her even bigger that makes her next steps even more important because she has to somehow find a compromise between that european solution that she wants and the national
measures that the interior minister wants so it will certainly be very important next few days both wrangler merkel but also for interior minister horse a horse and to most interior ministers they will for and chancellor merkel have never agreed on refugee policies but they did come to some sort of compromise to form their coalition government why this urgency now why is there for this this issue has to be settled within days. well essentially because he knows that in october in the autumn there will be regional elections in bavaria and c.s.u. certainly wants to perform well in their own territory and one way in which they believe that they can perform well is precisely by presenting this strict stance on migration policy hoffa now the interior minister came to that post in a sort of law and order profile and he also believes that in that profile he has the authority to act and he has the authority to act in a national way instead of a european way so the elements the fact that there are these are regional elections
in bavaria and the fact that the c.s.u. now holds the interior ministry do reflect why this situation is unfolding precisely now now this is a tense standoff between as a whole for and chance the market comes and go inside with the release of a new poll on the governments of ratings now let's take a look at what the approval ratings of the research institute in for tests asked respondents how satisfied they were with the government's performance a majority of them said sixty percent that's almost two thirds that they were dissatisfied and just about a third of the voters said they were satisfied with the government's record. to most and that's a clear majority how damaging is this for the government especially the chance that america i'm retired is obviously damaging i think that's absolutely clear and it does have to do with the fact that germany now has this migration crisis not only the one that we're discussing now but also
a wider crisis for example in the office for migration and refugees the so-called bomb we reported on that here in the w. news but it's also important to stress that it's not only about migration and there was already skepticism among the german population when he came to this new coalition and also skepticism when it came to those long negotiations before the coalition was formed so obviously now the situation is much more acute done for example a few weeks ago but it is also the case that there were certainly doubts and skepticism even before this latest scandal erupted there must borrow at the german parliament thank you very much for that. the issue of migration and refugees is also set to top the agenda of a meeting today between french president in modern mccraw and italian prime minister just set the continent tensions between the two countries over it it is refusing this week to allow a rescue ship with more than six hundred refugees on board to dock. the decision
irresponsible. that we now draw in. is in paris covering that meeting max this lunch has the potential to be quite hope but why it's going to embarrass. at the beginning this was supposed to be a meeting about the future of europe preparing the summit that thomas just mentioned in two weeks' time but just your general you know visiting for the first time kind of meeting but of course now at least in the eye of the public it's all about migration and for the two of them showing that they're overcoming what happened in the last days that they're ready to leave this behind them that they're reconciling and that they're ready to work together to solve the problems of the european union but of course those two governments that of italy and that are friends are in very different pages exactly the two leaders in fact a very different approaches to the e.u. and particularly now on how to tackle the refugee question could this issue to the
max. i read or you know that's what it seems like at first glance but specifically the topic of migration is much trickier because of if you look at what michael preaches and what he practices those are very two very different things especially on the border between italy and france where france is doing what italy is now trying to do they just shut the border and basically they're refusing any entry of illegal migrants just sending them back on italian territory so that's something that has caused some rows in the past already not as big as we had in the last few weeks but really the topic where they are at odds is how to go forward with the european union for example the for reform of the euro zone the new government it illegally wants to spend a whole lot of money that they don't have and that is what why many think this might be the beginning of a new financial crisis in the european union so that's where the real problems
where the real conflict at least between these two countries is at the moment max so fun in paris thank you very much. let me bring you up to date with some of the stories making news around the want him jim and seven people have been deported be killed in a saudi led offensive to retake the key port in the city off one day into the saudi that's going to she says it wants to drive her if you have this from the city for the who has always the rebels to resist the a sort. of a a member state of new york is suing to dissolve u.s. president dollar chunks challengeable foundation prosecutors allege persistently illegal conduct at the non profit organization including misusing donations and supporting trump's two thousand and sixteen campaign trump has called the lawsuit ridiculous he's pledged not to settle the case. former tennis legend barr specter has claimed diplomatic immunity to try and stop bankruptcy proceedings

cross his path are unlikely to learn much about the party's program many turkish media outlets don't report on them if it bit you get is in the heat you. we don't get any airtime on turkish t.v. you love the we're practically invisible they're broadcasters and newspapers that have reported on us that they've been shut down if city 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 good. of the modern. 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 outlands compay opposition leader more demeaning gente his c.h.p.
were given only six hours of air time they're all option as each party featured for just thirty minutes the candidates. has never been shown on them. the procrit is a sticky in particular faces many difficulties president out and has effectively declared the party an enemy of the states he accuses it all spreading terrorist propaganda and having ties to the militant p.k. paid work because of this the h d p's 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 criticize 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 her keys largest news broadcasters 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 a government. near 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. a veteran journalist and editor who worked for outlets including daughter bella has been shot dead in india. police say assailants came on motorbikes and fired a volley of bullets at. the sky as he was leaving his office. on clay his two bodyguards were also killed in the attack because he was the chief editor of several newspapers and a vocal advocate for the peaceful resolution of the kashmir dispute he worked for.

everything against saudi arabia the tournament scoping match we were talking about gas and today is national in just a few minutes. but first joins me doesn't look like a good day for what trigger hot is rather muted if you've been following the news on global trade over the past while you'd be forgiven of feeling a little bit overwhelmed with more twists than a murder mystery every day seems to bring another installment in the tale of tit for tat tariffs so let's take a deep breath and lay out the current state of affairs the big news today is that the united states is slapping twenty five percent tariffs on some one thousand and three hundred chinese products valued at around fifty billion dollars got that will go half more coming up in a report later on that story meanwhile the european union is hitting back against u.s. tariffs on advanced steel an element by imposing levies on american goods worth about
three point three billion dollars i think that's the right figure that including on its target tariff hit list bluejeans motorcycles and whiskey the e.u. might be in a united on that matter but on other issues of trade cracks are beginning to show italy's new government is now threatening not to ratify the e used trade deal with canada the food loving country says the agreement doesn't protect certain regional products like governs all of parmigiano and prosciutto so there we have it from blue jeans to blue cheese calles all around but one spot at a time that's returned to those u.s. tariffs on chinese goods. hit us with tariffs and we'll hit you back that was china's response to the latest twist in a dispute pitting the world's two biggest economies against each other. and if the united states takes unilateral protectionist measures that harm china's interests.
we'll react quickly and take the necessary steps to resolutely safeguard our fair and legitimate rights. a clear statement of intent just a day after u.s. secretary of state mike pompei you met his chinese counterpart in beijing but those diplomatic efforts didn't stop the united states from pressing ahead with plans to impose tariffs on fifty billion dollars worth of chinese goods early drafts of a list drawn up by the white house indicate that products including medical equipment and plane parts will be taxed at twenty five percent with china ready to fight back in kind the economic impact could be huge. now let's bring in our financial correspondent in frankfurt you know the triple blow to trade how is that going down with investors at the end of the trading. well we've seen mixed reactions across asia and this is in contrast to the more market
a downward slide in asian markets but it's been a really long week for investors what with all the geopolitical news central bank decisions and now this triple threat to global trade now it helps that they were prepared. for these developments now they did say after the g seven that these countermeasures on the steel and aluminum tariffs would be imposed and of course today was a day marked in the calendar of investors a day where the u.s. would release its final list of chinese goods to be tariff now the developments regarding sea top were a bit of a curveball but remember that these talks first a member of the almost collapse after resistance from the wild ones so this is a reminder to investors that states aren't always easy to you when if i in the name of free trade. is happening today christine legarde the chief of the international monetary fund is increasingly concerned about the most recent developments there's briefly here what she had to say. trade war driven by reciprocal
increases in. 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 are glum state and then in t. in particular mentions germany there what are you hearing is there any appetite for retaliation. most investors and industry players are keen to keep this from turning into a round after round tariffs a tit for tat escalation but opinion is more divided on how you can keep that from happening some say that a pragmatic approach should be taken for example regarding the threat of car import
tariffs which trump made with german cars specifically in mind they say that if he's angry about the high import tariffs that the e.u. has for our imported cars well then they should they should just cut them and create a good will for future negotiations and a hand that you could bring back to his base others would argue that this is what china tried to do in terms of offering concessions that said that it would lower car import tariffs and yet here we are today talking about the next phase in their trade dispute so for some that would be an argument for the e.u. and other trading partners to take a harder line but as you can see it's just not simple. to know the milan thank you very much. germany's central bank has slashed its growth forecast for this year from two point five to just two percent as fears of a trade war with the united states grow analysts exports expect exports to increase less than i originally expected of the sales concern for the german economy is the
shortage of skilled workers but it's not all doom and gloom the bank says high government spending is likely to fuel a boom next year. that's all their business for now i have an update for you in an hour special me to go thank you very much. the two thousand and eighteen comp is underway in russia as you might have noticed on the opening day the hosts faced saudi arabia fans in moscow were treated to an opening match when prompting wild celebrations in the capital as the lowest ranked team in the tournament russia got themselves a much needed head start in group. russia could not have hoped for a better stoss. eureka james key back in the first goal of the tournament after just twelve minutes and on the stroke of half time it was to. substitute dentist chair a chair for putting a grin on coast churches of face. russia might be the tournament's lowest ranked
team but they didn't look like it awesome juba made it three. the best of the bunch came in the ninety first minute cherry chip second an early contender for goal of the tournament saudi arabia might have been a soft opponent but this hot volley was pure inspiration a nightmare for the guests elation for the hosts even then there was more a free kick in the dying seconds completed the russian routes delights first certain discerning spectator saudi arabia's hopes however attached already. saw a stunning win for host nation russia in the opening match did have these in jonathan crane is in moscow and took in the celebrations we spoke to him earlier to get a taste of the atmosphere there after the match. celebrations really across the streets of moscow across the whole country and if you're 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 hadan 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 in the players were urging the country to unite behind the team for the five no victory they will surely be doing not knowledge. so that was jonathan crane in moscow talking methinks tatic russian fans and optimism surrounding the russian team and with me now in the studio is emily russia's from sports desk welcome emily so a perfect start for russia in this match obviously that must have raised expectations of the fans that they could do better how do you see them progressing in the group i mean i'm sure raised expectations but we have to consider that there were two sides to this game really if you look at the footage from yesterday's games and the
goals also then you know the second goal it was just really really poor defending on saudi arabia's side as you can see sure there are two defenders and i should've stopped it and that was one side of the game. but then we just have to say that russia also played it very very well they showed their class later on in the game with some spectacular shot in the first five. i think it's fair to say that if we see as many goals today it will not be as one sided as yesterday or of egypt faceoff quite soon and you know those are star studded teams there's or a guy with louis suarez who place for barcelona edinson cavani who plays for pitt is jamie and then there's egypt with most of that we see right here he's recovered from his injury in the chair. finally gyptian are surely so ecstatic that he's back in the team and hope that he can help his team get really far in this tournament.
you know because i mean he's hugely popular and not just with egyptian fans but you know a lot of people are dying to see him plates but now a group b. also kicks off today and we have morocco facing iran and portugal facing spain how do you see these games what are your expectations how did turn out morocco and iran are kind of in a similar situation as russia and saudi arabia neither of them are really favorite to make it to the next round so if they want to keep the hopes alive they have to get a win from their first game and then there's portugal against spain which by might be the most exciting game on paper at least in the group phase of this world cup portugal is the reigning champion the reigning european champions sorry. and they come into this tournament trying to prove themselves again on an even bigger stage with christiane a rinaldo you know can he score goals can he get them really far in the tournament it will be really interesting to see also because during the euros they didn't really establish themselves well as they had
a lot of draws just in the final they beat france one zero and they're playing against spain who are paid to be world cup favorites as well they won the world cup in two thousand and ten they performed really poorly in two thousand and fourteen and now they're going to hope to be on a better track again here but they have sacked their coach a couple of days ago spain and i do think that's going to affect that campaign yeah . look to take the story had to get had to go from the spanish national team camp amidst a fight with the spanish football federation and since then fernando general has stepped in and he's around madrid legend he's a spain legend really and we'll see how far they can get rid of to see how father gets and when he. says thank you very much. that's if an hour with you again at the top of the album.
