the german minister of the interior see who first to present a master plan on migration and in everything we do is just from conviction as they seem to you we need to keep in mind germany and european interests in view which is why we do not want any lateral actions here we don't want to act this image. of others and as i said thursday already. in the future we will not allow those asylum seekers to come in to germany in accordance with the double an agreement has already registered asylum. or we have our correspondents covering the story for the for us maximilian a kosik at the c s you had quarters in munich and melinda crane at the city you had
quarters here in berlin good to see you both lax let's start with you there a new nick what they were saying he is not backing down on migration policies he's giving the chancellor two weeks time is that are you see it. here at the federal interior ministers or saver so he has gotten what he wanted but at what cost we can see all eyes have been a munich today and what he will say and what his party will do in the ongoing crisis and we've now heard it before now have seen him preside and his much debated but not have been seen before masterplan migration the one that initially kicked off this crunch this crisis between the two parties and the government and he's been presenting that plan not just a couple of minutes because in munich saying that. he wants to go forward with this plan with his preparations but not implemented them as long as german chancellor angela merkel sold out over reach a deal at the u.s.
summit in a few weeks time now this is the second thing he's actually managed to get is that he's pushed german chancellor angela merkel to a policy shift in a sense well not completely yet because the still have to wait for the u.s. summit but he's managed to have her acknowledge that there needs to be something else to be done and the third thing he's actually managed to do is that he has implemented or he's said he will implement one direction and immediately well not today but within the next day which is that he wants to have a ban on those migrants who have been previously. banned from entering germany or for that those those will not be allowed to enter germany through the borders anymore the question now is at what costs well this has been a significant rift between the both sister parties that they're called here in germany see as you can see to you and german federal mint interior minister dossier of us now headed back to berlin and the question is how will he be received by his coalition partner the c.d.u. and also by the s.p.d.
he's been putting this whole government the goal call the grand coalition and take toll over the last weeks it's been already starting late within the legislature period and the question is will they be happy to see him and they be happy to keep working with him in the lead max has been taking a big risk indeed you know how of members of his c.s.u. party there been reacting to all of this. within the seas you potsie well this is the one interesting thing there has been quite a strong backing for the federal interior minister and party to hold itself but the same time there's also been questioning if there is doubts within the on policy and there's certainly doubts within the varian population which. eventually is voting on the party and other parties in the state election coming up toba so one thing i've noticed traveling around the country in the last day speaking to several people is that they were quite shocked by the tone that's been stroke and by the
leadership and the way they have handled this debate so the question is will it have hurt them so far we haven't seen any significant polls on it yet but there certainly has been a mood of thinking this has not been the right approach to push this issue right melinda let's come to you in berlin now we had the chance or say earlier the c.d.u. the c.s.u. the conservative bloc still share a common goal where does all of this leave the chancellor. essentially it leaves her with two very tough weeks ahead of her trying to get together by lateral agreements with the countries on the external southern perimeter of europe the countries that have borne the brunt of the influx of migrants for the past three years countries like italy countries like greece and she's going to be starting with that hard job the c evening she will be meeting the prime minister of the new italian government as you'll remember a nationalist populist government that came into power in italy just a couple of weeks ago not least because of the strains over migration and the
burdens it has imposed on italy she herself acknowledged that it's going to be a tough job she said anybody who knows the european union knows that this isn't going to be easy but she's been absolutely adamant saying germany cannot simply go it alone unilaterally to say we are going to turn back refugees in our own interests on our own who have already registered inside. in european countries and send them back and say this is your problem now and she essentially told her party leadership this morning she believes that the german response on this essentially will determine whether the european union can even remain together so she sees very high stakes indeed and for that reason she also is not accepting the interior minister's basic argument which was repeated just now in his press conference that he in his capacity as interior minister with german interests. in his main priority that he has the right to proceed unilaterally and automatically
if there is no solution involving other european union member states in other words the sound bite we just heard from the chancellor saying german and european interests he doesn't agree with the second part of that clause he believes it's german interests that should determine his behavior going forward and he's ready to move unilaterally and automatically to implement his master plan on migration if the european union summit doesn't ratify a multilateral approach or an approach based on bilateral agreements with those southern countries and linda we've seen really dramatic days here in berlin the interior minister haas they hope for with those words essentially threatening to go over the chancers had could have toppled the government you know how much of this also now as a whole for dictating an ultimatum to the chancellor how much of this has damaged medical standing within her party and also her government. theoretically by the way
it could still topple the government it's possible they simply kick the can down the road and we'll have the whole discussion again after that e.u. summit how much has it damaged the government there was a poll taken over the weekend it's taken pretty much every sunday people here call it the sunday question and it essentially asks those who were polled which party's would you vote for if elections were to be held today and we saw the c.d.u. c.s.u. the two conservative parties together falling by several percentage points and that was interpreted by the pollsters and by most analysts as showing that germans on the whole have not seen this dispute with equanimity but in fact that it will diminish support for both parties both for the interior minister's varian conservatives and also for the chancellor's c.d.u. so it's left this very young government definitely i think diminished in the eyes
of the public and essentially a disadvantage then for for both of the leaders here at the heart of this dispute all right and as you said the end of the dispute is far from over our chief political correspondent melinda crane at the city you had quarters in berlin and maximally on a kosik at the c.s.u. headquarters and munich thanks to you both. now to some other stories making headlines around the world colombia has elected the conservative even to get to be the country's next president defeated the leftist candidate who stumbled through in the first presidential runoff since the controversial peace agreement with dark rebels was signed newquay is promising to make changes to the deal but said he would not to shred it completely. a monitoring group says airstrikes in eastern syria killed at least thirty eight foreign fighters allied with syria's government the attack hit a village outside the town of book amal near the iraqi border syrian state media
