simon rattle was acting on the baton as head conductor of the berlin philharmonic the british maestro charted a new processor one of the world's most renowned orchestras bringing it up to date for the twenty first century. i'm sumi so much going to thank you for joining us german chancellor angela merkel is visiting jordan today a major refugee host country amid an escalating domestic conflict over migration that has shaken her coalition government held talks with jordan's king abdullah where refugee policy top the agenda hundreds of thousands of displaced syrians including some initially hosted by jordan have migrated onward to europe with germany as a key destination. is chief political editor michel are krisna is traveling with the german chancellor let's hear how america is working with jordan on the migration issue. in jordan german chancellor angela merkel pleasant just one
hundred million dollars in credit for jordan which already has some three hundred eighty four million in support and development aid it's a country that is severely under pressure from the issue of migration and that at the same time needs to make sure its own population has a good future those were the words of the german chancellor here recognizing jordan is contributing to keeping this region stable and stability is also what jordanian king of dollar said was a common interests were both countries were working for each other's interests here but of course the overarching issue for the german chancellor is the political crisis that is brewing back home and that is all about migration her initial open policy she severely under pressure her chief foreign policy adviser stayed behind in berlin to get more and more edu countries to pledge that they will join this
special informal summit on migration this coming sunday which in the end will sow how great uncle americal personal support as a politician is in europe after all she promised to deliver bilateral deals in time for the upcoming edu summit in under ten days time. right let's bring in our political correspondent here in berlin for more on the story have repaired merkel and jordan today said that germany must remain an open country but as michelle just said here at home she's facing a revolt among her own conservatives over open migration policy what do you think she means by that. these remarks were made to during meeting on the american had with students from the region in the middle east and these students quite frankly all still have the chance of the german chancellor how safe it will be to live in germany as a foreigner or as a refugee and the chancellor then and said that despite all the discussions going on in germany and despite of course several incidents we have had. foreigners all
refugees being a tucked by germans year in the country but germany of course still would be a country safe to live in and she also said that germany despite all the discussions we are seeing right now needs to be an open country needs to be open for people who want to come to germany to work there but i think that this she didn't really mean foreigners shouldn't didn't really mean refugees but experts for and of for instance on people let's say high potentials people germany really needs on the labor market all right robert will come back in just a moment to talk more about the challenges facing the chancellor with more displaced people in the world than ever before europe's resistance to taking them in is growing just yesterday hungary's conservative led parliament approved a raft of tough new migration bills the package of legislation makes it illegal to help asylum seekers who are not entitled to protection and hungary now
a change the constitution was also approved outloud outlawing lying rather selling foreign populations in the country so we're seeing a hardening stance in europe over migration how tough is it going to be for the chancellor to find a european solution. well first we have to differ between the european solution and the solution until america right now is seeking for the european solution the german chancellor has spoken often the last three years actually meant how all the european countries are going to treat the refugees which are already in europe and how many kind of countries are going to take the burden so right now that the problem is that many const like spain or like italy or even or even germany have taken most of the refugee burden and other countries especially in the in eastern europe said no we don't want to or don't want to have a new refugees at all in our country like hungry as we have seen so there was no
possibility to find any quotas on how many people should go into which country the solution is seeking for right now is in the end national solution but not against the other countries what she wants to find is she wants to have the possibility to sun to people back to other european countries where they have been registered as a side them see because it wants to give them back to italy for instance or also three zero or spain but these countries have to say that yes to that and that's the whole idea of what is going to happen at the weekend all right rupert our political correspondent i thank you for your analysis you know what. all it took was his signature u.s. president donald trump had insisted he was powerless to stop the separation of immigrant families at the country's southern border but he has now issued an executive order to reverse course trump's move means that families entering the
u.s. illegally will now be detained together it is a rare policy retreat for the u.s. president following days of public outrage that have a lot of happy people. it was that easy president trump effectively reversing a policy that has separated thousands of children from their parents and kept them in conditions critics have called in to maine and even evil. this is trumps a zero tolerance immigration policy in action. illegal immigrants are now being prosecuted as criminals and can be imprisoned for an indefinite amount of time the children that cross the border illegally however can only be detained for a maximum of twenty days under u.s. law the policy to separate children from parents was designed to get around that problem and critics argue to send
a stark message to families thinking about making the journey. as the numbers of detained children grew in recent weeks so too did the waves of opposition from dozens of cities across america to congress. let's go back to a time a steady and decency in america when children were respected loved the children mr president be a dad for once it's been going on for six as the blowback intensified including from members of trump's own republican party trump relented signing an executive order to do what his administration had been saying for weeks it couldn't we're signing an executive order. i consider to be a very important executive order it's about keeping families together while at the same time. making sure that we have a very powerful very strong border and border security will be. equal if they are greater than previously so we're going to have strong very strong borders but we're
going to keep the families together. although this solves one problem for his administration it creates another children will now be key. shipped with their families in detention but because the children can't be detained for more than twenty days the trumpet ministration is headed to the courts asking a federal judge to allow children to be detained alongside their parents indefinitely for as long as the prosecution takes. now to some other stories making headlines around the world new zealand prime minister just into our turn has given birth to her first child a healthy baby girl ardern is just the second elected world leader to give birth while in office her deputy will run the country for the next six weeks while ardern takes maternity leave thousands of people have been for performing yoga and mask practices across india today for the world's fourth international yoga day the country's prime minister narendra modi also took part modi one un approval for the
