a friendly face in paris image of rao oval migration the two countries clashed after president a call criticize italy for blocking a refugee rescue ship from docking. and running for election from shake hands to the prez to head to the close one of the main opposition candidates is stuck behind bars but that's not stopped him from campaigning to unseat turkey's president. because the world cup host of russia celebrate their explosive five new win against saudi arabia as a tournament opening match we'll be talking about that and today's matches in just a few minutes. telling of a warm welcome to you i'm on the thought she german chancellor angela merkel is facing a serious challenge to our touchy with it our own. of bloc over refugee policy that
2:02 pm
could threaten households and power makers interior minister jose who fall from the conservative bavarian c.s.u. party is openly defying he wants to implement a master plan for migration under which some refugees will be turned away at the german border merkel has rejected the idea insisting instead on finding a joint european approach. governing coalition has begun to wobble over a welcoming policy toward refugees her own conservative party the c d u still backs her varian conservatives the c s you are in open rebellion. despite attempts at finding a consensus on c s u leaders say a change in policy is needed now. to stream of illegal migrants to germany is a big problem and the populace is very critical it's a political hot potato wherever we go and we have to solve this problem now on them
2:03 pm
is this it's. machall hopes to negotiate a european solution to the migrant issue when e.u. heads of state meet in brussels in two weeks' time she argues that germany shouldn't be acting on its own offering a quote to the effect that international problems require international solutions. he very soon through the end it world is highly integrated everything is too interconnected for any individual country to determine its destiny alone very wise words. but germany c.s.u. interior minister horst c. who for wants germany to refuse entry to migrants registered in other countries and he made issue orders to that effect against merkel's wishes the opposition sees this as a political puts does isis do not think the government is on thin ice that's obvious . but is this is another attempt from the right wing of the conservatives to launch
2:04 pm
a takeover. on your own. time is running out for the two sides to reach a compromise if they don't. government could be in serious trouble. each of us chief political editor michel acosta joins me from the german parliament the bundestag we share chancellor merkel has got support from a part of the governing coalition but is that enough or could the german government for a pot over this refugee issue. well we're quite a way off that particular scenario but certainly this is the most severe challenge she's faced to date from within her party coalition of the c.d.u. and the more conservative c.s.u. sister party in bavaria and just in a straight that everybody here in political berlin starts believing that anything could be possible there was a fake tweet today which really spread like wildfire which allege that hostile for the interior minister would basically give up on the concept of having
2:05 pm
a joint parliamentary group that would stop it be a step short of actually giving up the coalition but it would give up that particular group well that spread before that particular message could really be the monsters being fake even had a very impact on the euro so there's a lot of scenarios that people start believing could potentially be tangible and that in itself of course is a challenge to michael's leadership because her brand after all is stability. we had this always been a huge friction between the hopeful and market but what is the standoff really about. well at the core it is the issue of migration both never saw eye to eye on this at one particular point in time we saw still for cues merkel of breaking the law he threatened to bring up before the constitutional court. again and again we saw these two face off on this they really made peace going into those past
2:06 pm
elections and now this is erupted into a rebellion by the interior minister potentially against the chancellor with this deadline hanging in the air of monday potentially but we're ready hearing even from the more focused use you delegates that both are trying to find a way out of this now all of this comes as a research institute in front as the map has also a number of questions about refugees let's take a look at one question that was asked a large majority eighty six percent said they were in favor of a more efficient system to deport people whose asylum request has been denied so michelle what does this number tell us eighty six percent support the interior minister on this issue of refugees. you know there's a difference here particularly merkel remains popular here in germany it's questionable whether you would get any figure like that for that kind of rebellion
2:07 pm
but it does so that the open arms enthusiasm and twenty fifteen twenty sixteen when hundreds of thousands of migrants of red arrived here in germany has somewhat soured and that people in germany that the majority of those certainly asked feel that to the needs to be a change there needs to be a tightening in the asylum system something that under the macro has actually done she did declare more countries safe over those past years so this explains why the c.s.u. in bavaria feels void by this public sentiment after all the suits you has to contest the election against the far right fifty which basically feeds politically off the very migration issue so a lot of this is also about regional politics here the pull that i mentioned earlier also german respondents about how satisfied they were with the government's performance in a carriage already almost two thirds said they were not satisfied about a third of the voters said they were satisfied with the government's record michel and what does this mean for the chancellor is hope popularity going down not really
2:08 pm
going ackles popularity does remain stable having said that there was never great appetite and enthusiasm about the continuation of this so-called grand coalition so overall there is a distinct lack of enthusiasm of how the grand so-called grand coalition the continuation of same old same old as some perceive it is panning out here and any. political editor thank you very much for your analysis. the issue of migration is also set to top the agenda of a meeting today between french president in london mcchrystal and italian prime minister just sepic on to now conti arrived at the liza palace in paris for the working lunch hosted by mccraw tensions have it isn't between the two countries over it it is refusal to speak to allow a rescue ship with more than six hundred refugees to dock on an italian port on the
2:09 pm
cole called a decision irresponsible. that we now do and indeed obvious political correspondent max so funny he is in paris at the elizabeth alice where the meeting is going on max firstly why is just said because they're given dispatch about this refugee boat this could be an awkward lunch between the two leaders it could be an awkward lunch that they're having right now at the moment behind me at the palace of but you have to remember this meeting was scheduled before this whole trouble over the migration issue started so it was supposed to be a meeting where they talk about the future of the european union but as you just mentioned of course migration will be at the forefront of this what the public will want to know from those two leaders here at the elysee palace i reckon that the main message from them will be they have left it behind them and are ready to tackle the issues of the european union even if these two governments the one of france in the one of italy you have very different visions for the european union exactly as you said the two leaders have very different needs and ways they want to
2:10 pm
tackle migration could this issue in fact they are the a part because they also a lot of differences within the e.u. . it's like you know this if you say the migration crisis is sort of a war within the european union and then this this new conflict between italy and france has dug out a new trench and there are already a lot of trenches for example between eastern european countries like congress and western european countries like germany and then you have within the german coalition trench side and now you have this it just shows you this is the most contentious issue in the european union and if there is a topic that has the potential to blow up the european union it's that one but this is not the only issue on which the two leaders a having lunch behind you disagree on is that next. you know probably the topic that's the most difficult is the reform of the euro zone and how to tackle for
2:11 pm
example public debt in italy which is huge to put it that way but the new italian government has decided they want to spend a lot of money that they don't have and that's why many fear they might be triggering a new even bigger front crisis than the last one we all remember the trouble with greece italy really goes down that path then the european union is in much more trouble than back then. he's a finalist in paris thank you very much for that update. let me now bring you up to date with some of the stories making news around the wild in yemen several dozen people have reportedly been killed in a saudi led offensive to retake a key port in the city of hadera the saudi led coalition says it wants to drive with your reverence from the city but who has urged the rebels to resist the assort . the stage of view york is suing to dissolve u.s. president dollar trunks chargeable foundation prosecutors allege persistently
2:12 pm
illegal conduct at the nonprofit 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 boris becker has diplomatic immunity to try and stop bankruptcy proceedings against him becca was declared bankrupt lost over the debts to a private bank in london he says he acquired it diplomatic status in april when he was appointed sports attash heir to the central african republic. here watching the news coming up ahead wildcat coaster russia celebrate explosive five nil win against saudi arabia at the tournament's opening match we'll be talking about that and the upcoming matches today. the first joins me and to tell us it's not a very good day for trade. follow news on global trade over the past
2:13 pm
while it can be forgiven for feeling a little bit overwhelmed with more twists than a murder mystery every day seems to bring another installment in that tale of tit for tat turfs so let's take a deep breath and lay out the current state of affairs the big news today is that it's no official the united states has slapped twenty five percent tariffs on some one thousand three hundred chinese products by. well you know that around fifty billion dollars we've been taking notes got all that snow ever mild we'll have all the details coming up in a report in a moment meanwhile the european union is hitting back against u.s. tariffs on their steel another medium by imposing levies on american goods worth about three point three billion dollars included on the e use tariff hitlist bluejeans motorcycles and whiskey now the e.u. might be united on that matter but on another issue of trade the cracks are
2:14 pm
beginning to show italy is new government is now threatening not to ratify the e used trade deal with canada the food loving country says the the agreement doesn't protect certain regional products like gold and solar parmigiano all of them so there we have it from blue jeans to blue jeans chaos all around but one spot at a time let's return 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 placing the world's two biggest economies against each other. 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.
2:15 pm
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 which 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 a triple blow to world trade how is that going down with investors at the end of the trading week. you know that end of this trading week seemed really long in coming there for a while with this flurry of market moving news on the geo political front on from monetary policy policy decisions coming from the fed and the e.c.b. and of course today's focus on trade now i've been tracking market reaction all
2:16 pm
week yesterday for example was a great day for stocks as a the e.c.b. were iterated confidence and the euro zone's growth story now markets have taken a bit of a dive today as they're once again reminded of the threat so that growth story as you can probably see on the dax index behind me so while the markets were prepared in a sense of for these new fronts in the global trade disputes and after what people are calling the most significant week in the world economy investors count the blame for feeling more than a little bit fatigued. christine legarde is the chief of the international monetary fund and she's increasingly concerned about the most recent developments that's. super cooled trade war driven by reciprocal increases in tar if 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
2:17 pm
takes action but especially if other countries as a result would to retaliate notably those that would be most affected such as canada such as germany and other european countries for retaliation if you feel there is appetite for retaliation she mentioned germany the specifically. mostly especially here in export oriented germany hopes are running high a negotiated agreement could be hashed out on all those global trade fronts and it's also worth noting that the measures imposed so far have mostly political significance targeting iconic american products as opposed to being measures really meant to knock off points off g.d.p. but really the fear that this will escalate and it will erode trust in rules based trade that is something that could have knock on effects on the world economy and our people are divided as to how best to deal with this is this an opportunity to fix trade imbalances for example and perhaps really address an even trade tariffs
2:18 pm
or should that you take a stronger stand and also engage in stronger rhetoric in order to strengthen its negotiating had so those are the questions that investors have on their minds today . in frankfurt the forest thank you. 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 expect exports to grow less than i originally expected another source of 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 the boom next year. that's all your business it's spectrometer thank you get a hug. now a turkey goes the posen just over a week's time and the incumbent president rich of the edge one is the clear frontrunner but that's not stopping opposition candidates from running against him
2:19 pm
even if they're in jail the poll goodish h.g.v. party presidential candidate said one had seen them are was detained in november two thousand and sixteen he told the dobbies istanbul correspondent who you hon what's it like campaigning behind baas. nihad damien is a political campaigner 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 if it bit you good as individual. we don't get any airtime on turkish t.v. the were practically invisible and it's their broadcasters and newspapers that however cornered on us but they've been shut down. they want to make it difficult for us because it's
2:20 pm
a little. head you know we're not going to give up the. other mothers you know. 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 made turkey's public broadcaster t.r.t. spent more than sixty eight hours reporting on alan's compay opposition leader to mean gente his c.h.p. were given only six hours of air time. each party featured for just thirteen minutes the h d p candidates. has never been shown on at. the proca this h d p in particular faces many difficulties the president out and has effectively declared the party an enemy of the states he accuses it of spreading terrorist propaganda and having ties to the militant p.k. take work because of this the h.d.
2:21 pm
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 criticize the government's handling of. but that doesn't help him much his election campaigning has so far been limited to social media recently on twitter he asked lodge's 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 the government. funny how dania the h.t.t.p. campaigner and he stumbles such obstacles are just part of everyday life but despite the challenges he continues he says the harder life becomes for his people
2:22 pm
the harder he will work for change. this is day two at the two thousand and eighteen world cup in russia on the opening day the host face saudi arabia joshing fans in moscow were ecstatic at the five nil win in the opening match tom ting while celebrations in the capital as the lowest ranked team in the tournament of russia got themselves a much needed boost in group a. russia could not have hoped for a better stuff. here a guy james key backing 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 church as a face. russia might be the top of its lowest ranked team but they didn't look like it awesome juba made it three. the best of the bunch came in the
2:23 pm
ninety first minute cherry chap second in the early contender for goal of the tournament saudi arabia might have been a soft opponent but this volley was pure inspiration a nightmare for the guests elation for the hosts even then there was more of a free kick. in the dying seconds completed the russian routes delights for certain discerning spectator saudi arabia's hopes however attached already. a stunning win for host nation russia in the opening match details ms johnson crean is in moscow and took in the celebrations let's get a favor of what happened. celebrations really across the streets of moscow across the whole country and if you'll forgive me for trusting out of cliche it really was a posse 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 in seven nights
2:24 pm
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 right now. so that was jonathan green in moscow telling us about the extatic russian fans after they in fact win on day one with me now is it me is russia strong sports says wonderful to see you emily now obviously is russia confident of progressing into the next round the expectations us be high off the decisive way and it was definitely an exciting opening game i'll give you that but there are two sides to the story really on the one hand saudi arabia is defending really poor we have to say that they left their opponents too much space there always a step behind consumed this goal right here i mean dave just one opponents for russia on this day and on the other side russia showed some real class with shots from the distance like here that's a real beauty so it will really depend on their group opponents the group favorites
2:25 pm
egypt and guy how will they fare in their games. with their star striker luis suarez and edinson cavani and then egypt with their star player mohamed saleh is a finally back from his injury although those two teams are currently facing up and mohamed salah is and was not in the starting line up so we'll have to see how they fare without him in the game against or why and in the later stages of the group phase because if he's not one hundred percent fit in might still be difficult and russia might have a chance i mean this so much of hype about most sana and the game actually to be much more exciting than we'd expected turning now to the other group of the matches in morocco facing iran portugal facing spain what are your expectations of these matches. morocco and iran are in a similar situation as saudi arabia and russia were they have to get a win because they're not really favored to make it to the next round but then there's the huge game today which is portugal and spain portugal are the reigning
2:26 pm
european champions with kris jenner rinaldo you know they've got a great fantastic team but their campaign wasn't flawless in two thousand and sixteen at the euros they had some draw as you know they weren't always convincing in their wins so we'll have to see how they fare at this world cup and then there's spain who won the world cup in two thousand and ten but then was eliminated in the group phase in two thousand and fourteen which was really disappointing and surely they'll want to get back on track absolutely india one of the favorites to actually win the tournament this time spain but these sacked their coach the head coach two days ago do you think that will have an impact on their performance it's difficult to say at this point they sacked their head coach you unlock the tag after a dispute with the spanish football federation and they brought in from number hero who is around madrid legend he's a spain legend and he's really said that he's going to try to keep it all calm and not change much about the winning team but whether that will really affect the squad we'll have to wait and see and briefly and lina germany play their first game against mexico on sunday what are your expectations that the big question will be
2:27 pm
whether manoa noire their captain is really ready to be fit really ready to be thrown into this tournament but i think it was mexican german who want to get a good start a solid start a calm start as we know from york and of and they'll surely try to get a win on that absolutely a lot of support for germany kill obviously here for the team thank you very much and leadership from us both to ask for your sports and not if is. you're watching the dubbing is coming to you live from berlin here's a recap of the top story the field. is facing a rebellion in our own close ups of. the migration policy. the standoff with the own interior minister is being seen as the most serious crisis to shift america's three month old coalition government. that's it to me under that she might be used.
