this is d.w. news coming to you live from berlin. all the retreat ahead of an emergency and you so much on migration german chancellor with drawls of draft accord she hoped would clinch risks with migration deal this after she clashed with the italian prime minister plus of course central european countries snub cold with a boycott also coming out. turkey's election just days away the economy there is weighing heavily on voters' minds who get a briefing from our correspondent in istanbul. also this hour we're heading to the
world cup in russia where a spectacular error by argentina's goalkeeper moves his team to the brink of crashing out of the tournament we'll tell you all about it and go to moscow for reaction. hello i'm terry march and thanks for joining us the european union's deep divisions over migration are on display yet again emergency talks are planned for sunday and italy will now has now confirmed that it will take part but only after german chancellor agreed to scrap a prepared joint statement she hoped would clinch the swift deal anti immigrant leaders from central europe meanwhile said they'll boy caught the summit in a sign of worsening divisions within europe. there are three days to go before
german chancellor angela merkel's mini migration summit in brussels invitations have gone out in the name of the european commission to ten countries including italy greece spain and austria coming maybe more the german chancellor wants as many countries as possible to take back refugees if they've registered their first a preliminary draft of the final declaration points to a clear tightening of the u.s. side and policy including an end to the large scale movement of refugees within the european union the document proposes the establishment of migrant processing centers outside a u. borders also a mechanism for deportations between e.u. countries cash and other welfare provisions would only be available in the countries migrants are registered and there'd be controls at stations in airports to limit cross border movement but the document provoked disagreement as soon as it was leaked italian prime minister to. complain that the paper disregarded his country's position and threatened to boycott this weekend's migration meeting he
says italy wants a moratorium on new migrants before it takes any back from other e.u. countries italy's far right interior minister had already up the rhetoric the previous evening. in europe the times are over when france and germany decided refugee policy when they told european italy what they had to pay and which migrants they had to take in. it took a call from angela merkel in the promise to withdraw the draft before the italian prime minister agreed to attend this weekend's talks we'll see each other in brussels on sunday can they wrote sounds like he's ready for a fight our europe correspondent barbara bizzle joins us now from luxembourg barbara sunday's mini summit is just an informal meeting to lay the groundwork for a full blown e.u. summit next week and why is it turning out to be so hugely controversial. because of course the government crisis that was created by want to for the nz
coalition partners sort of brings in the open all the differences and the total inconsistency is of european migration policy that has been just brushed under the carpet for years now every summit every meeting there's been talk about it and because there is no consensus and none could be found things have brushed back under and now they're open and we see chaos days in brussels because they have just forty eight hours to come up with some new proposals that i'll palatable to the reception countries particularly italy and greece and we look at the political developments there in the rise of the right wing leader in italy who really wants power and nothing else and he does really care about consensus in europe and we understand how extremely difficult and dangerous the situation is particularly for the german chancellor so we've got some new leaders joining merkel in brussels to
talk about migration meanwhile other. hold a counter gathering in hungary what started all about. that's division got group the group of the eastern european four of which is not an unusual thing they always hold sort of separate meetings before the e.u. meetings however they made a point of saying we're not counting. they haven't even been invited terry so this is a piece of political theater and some grandstanding that trying to participate in a game that isn't really about them but that is mainly about france and germany because in london the crown was one of the few or european leaders sort of heavy angular markets back and of course the reception countries in particular italy they want to get rid of migrants they want to hand over to europe and then before they say we can process further the numbers of incoming and people enter. the other side
to going to america is under pressure to sort of give people and push people back to them so how can that be brought together nobody knows so there clearly divisions there in the e.u. we've all known that but the big question how likely is it that the e.u. can agree on an migration policy that will allow the chancellor here in germany to keep her government together. the hell you will not agree not in one go it's not possible and part of this package has already been pushed forward into the fall what the commission hopes for and the i say helpers i'm going to america's health boards are hoping for is that valid to really try literal agreements can begin to pave the way and we can slowly move towards a solution in the future that is the best she can get at the moment and whether her of the variances the party will be satisfied with that that is the decision that is going to be made not in brussels not in berlin but in munich i'm afraid barbara
thank you so much your correspondent barbara vai's all there in luxembourg. well as european leaders squabble over migration german chancellor angela merkel is on a two day trip to the middle east today she's in lebanon on a major host of refugees fleeing regional conflict medical held talks with prime minister saad hariri after arriving yesterday in beirut michael offered her support to the country which is taken in an estimated one and a half million displaced syrians earlier the german leader was in jordan where she met king abdullah michel promised one hundred million dollar loan to help the government implement economic reform. well migration is also dominating public debate in the united states at the moment the u.s. is preparing to house as many as twenty thousand migrant children on four military bases it's unclear if detained parents would also be held there too this comes amid
reports of widespread confusion at the u.s. border this a day after president donald trump signed an executive order ending the policy of separating migrant families who enter illegally from mexico the reversal follows growing global and domestic outrage over the policy. well hoping perhaps to mitigate some of that outrage the first lady flew to texas to get a firsthand look at the child detention center despite the visit much of the press coverage was on trump's choice of wardrobe she was seen boarding the plane wearing a jacket with the words i really don't care do you printed on the back her spokesperson said there was no hidden message it was just a jacket. well europe is hitting back punitive trade turds that the u.s. is imposed on the e.u. monica right erin this is the next step towards a potential trade war the u.s.
retaliatory tariffs on u.s. goods come into force today they are brussels answer to washington's decision to impose tariffs on foreign steel and many a move that's left many of america's trade partners fuming canada mexico the e.u. and china as well as japan will be hardest hit donald trump has taken a particularly harsh line with china the u.s. is slapping new duties on chinese made washing machines solar panels fridges of phones among others all in all one thousand one hundred products will be affected china has hit back with tariffs of its own relations with the e.u. also continue to sour levies on imports valued at about two point eight billion dollars including motorcycles jeans and whiskey starts today trump has already threatened taxes on other e.u. goods like cars could follow the trade route is one of many issues
overshadowing sunday's elections in turkey the turkish economy is plagued with high inflation and a sinking currency this week the lira hit a new historic low against the u.s. dollar u.w.s. you would han sent us this report from istanbul. machines are still rattling away in this is a stumble printing house taking bolo has been in charge here for over thirty years but he says business hasn't been this bad in a long time. paper. most of the raw materials we use have to be imported. and because the lira is getting weaker and weaker against the dollar. cost of increased a lot. the only thing we can do is struggle to survive where. so. many turkish people share.
prices are rising because the lira is worth less and less. unemployment stands at over ten percent just ahead of the election the economy is casting a shadow over the country's mood. sensient just isn't enough we can barely make it to the end of the months. guess yet even young people who've graduated from university are unemployed molly at that everything is expensive especially the rent the government needs to act as soon as possible. economist most of us and mez is convinced that president calderon brought the vote forward to get it in ahead of a potential economic crash out once policies have failed says mess because he made bad decisions in prosperous times. rather than sectors like the farming industry or export the money was invested in
construction projects and domestic consumption it was a mistake it was economic growth through doping it brought nothing but high inflation and didn't help reduce unemployment. it's a ticking bolos printing house everyone is well aware of the difficult situation facing the country until now he's managed to avoid letting go of any workers but that could change if the turkish economy doesn't improve. and for more on the turkish economy and how it could impact sunday's election i'm joined by adam gotten a professor of economics or economics at the university of applied sciences in constance the to have you with us richard type everyone is widely seen as the man who made took his economy great again in his sixteen years in power average annual incomes more than doubled but as we just heard in this report also people are less
upbeat about the economy now what went wrong well that's to be serious about the largest group over the last few years in particular to two thousand and eleven. but this is going on. the government will the structural certainty won't their democracy will progress but over the last few years and pretty good could come with me. our concentration is the more credit is usually a group of men suffer and grow. maybe because states thought oh my. homey drove the growth rate of something higher power who you know park important public figures my beautiful or you changed. a lot about. sustainable. so it was basically artificial growth what you're saying and had
a lot of course called sunday's snap election back in april do you think he underestimated the economic decline. well yeah people you're the underestimated but at the same time there are very tall men to realize that happy people are you laughing because there is broad consensus that trees grow their growth numbers stop you also to fire economy is not a very difficult condition that in the next month this is even becoming worse because of a certainty about the political future of the country is looming and increasing nevertheless latest post suggests that add one will win sunday's election however with alina majority than previously expected was that mean for the sweeping reforms that he planned well there is a very important aspect because not about the vote on whether the president probably read a letter there is also a new constitution where the parliament. and the president is going to be the. power concentration will take part in the presidential side but this is required
anyway the majority in parliament and it looks like this majority for a party is no longer sure that their worst outcome could be that there is a that what we call the parliament will be dominated no law. will president last in principle the desire to have a lot of power it can use by people mob yet it's a kind of a lame duck situation increasing the uncertainty already corney and that's one reason why i still karzi sorry go out even worse than all right and i had seen professor of economics at the university of applied science in constance thank you so much. thank you think what economic problems rattled greece for a long time but that at least seems to be self terry that's right the greeks are hoping to be able to stand on their own two feet as it were a lot of other people are hoping that to financially at least let's check on some of the other stories that are happening around the world starting with greece
finance ministers in the euro zone have declared the greek debt crisis to beat over after reaching a new deal providing debt relief and a cash payout athens greece has already received some three hundred billion euros in financial support from international creditors over the past eight years. italy says it will seeds to migrant rescue ships operating by n.g.o.s in order to launch an investigation into their legal status interior minister material had turned away one of the ships on thursday carrying more than two hundred migrants beenie has pledged to block angio boats from docking in italy. and a court in indonesia has sentenced a cleric to death for planning a series of islamist attacks from his jail cell amman. is considered the defacto head of indonesia's supporters of the so-called islamic state prosecutors say the attacks he ordered include a two thousand and sixteen suicide bombing in jakarta that killed four people.
this is one of the most iconic images of german post-war history seventy eight years ago excited children in west berlin cheer on u.s. and british pilots their planes affectionately known became came down as candy bombers they were in fact part of the first international crisis of the cold war after the second world war germany was divided into four occupations american french british and soviet and so was its capital berlin in one thousand nine hundred eight western allies united there's owns into one monetary and economic area the soviet union reacted by blockading west berlin and closing all transport routes to the sectors under western control now to supply the population here with essential goods the allies had to use three airway corridors and the berlin airlift
was born for more than one year a plane made a drop to the besieged city every three minutes they delivered thousands of tons of food coal and medication daily and sometimes even candy for youngest this week marks the seventieth anniversary of the blockade our reporter daniel but billet met one berliner who was a child at the time of the airlift here's his story. boris still feels attached to this place today seventy years ago he watched western allied aircraft land here to see west berlin. while i think of the past in connection with. i feel totally different back in time in my heart and mind relive those hardships. planes no longer fly to and from. but back then the airport was the heart of one of the most extraordinary rescue
missions of all time the soviets blockaded west berlin in one thousand nine hundred eight the people of the war torn city were on the verge of starvation there was no food or gasoline west berliners were afraid of succumbing to the soviets. got there there. either is not only air came in the last year the there should not own either is why they should i.a.s. gaited. the western powers response was unique and airlift every few minutes planes dropped essential supplies in west berlin up to thirteen thousand tons each day the response was just nine years old but he still remembers the airlift well. the planes can be bombers because the pilots dropped sweets from the sky instead of bombs. they dropped little parachutes for us kids the whole street was full of children running towards the
falling parachutes. of course it was a big deal when one of the kids caught one we were thrilled it was chewing gum inside chocolate and of course paul's candies. one childhood picture is especially meaningful for fun. and. whenever i look at this picture i look for my brother or for myself but back then we couldn't afford. shoes we always went around barefoot. and i can see you know children who benefits. from . the rescue operation came at a high price more than seventy u.s. and british airmen lost their lives in accidents today a monument stands in their honor at temple airport. yeah. i see this monument as a sign of the fight for freedom that's what it was the americans fed millions of us
west berliners and didn't abandon us to the russians. back then americans were seen as rescuers and benefactors but today the u.s. is increasingly going its own way even so it's conscript still feels grateful for him the americans will always be friends. it's much day nine at the world cup in russia it's from did obvious sports is here to talk about it. first of all croatia crushes argentina this is a kind of oh my god that's a huge result isn't it absolutely i mean this is about as humiliating as it gets for argentina as the limitations of a team that just narrowly qualified for the world cup were brutally exposed crayfish on the other hand are fantastic side they've got a good mixture going on of individual technique tactical discipline and the winning
mentality but let's have a look at the highlights because there were some stunning scenes of the game. a new the first hostile argentina swung to several clear cut chances enzo perez is miss on the hot foul among the worst of a bad bunch they were made to regret their proficiency in the second and say rabbits ruthlessly punishing me sweetie caballero it arrive a first world cup goal for the eintracht frankfurt man an ice cold finish in the fifty third minute leaving caballero no chance. thank you aisha was done then luka mode which was allowed for too much space in the eightieth minute he unleashed a sensational strike to double his side's advantage by a time for heroes if ever there was one but only hope soon disappeared an unselfish much hello bros a bitch gave even rocketed to second bites of the cherry to kill a game in the ninety minutes three nil the final score. argentina's world cup survival is out of their own hands missy's bid for world cup glory surely up in
smoke. looking glum messy this is not the headline that leanna messi was looking for is it in what may have been his list what might be his last world cup tournaments yeah that's really rough for him and to be honest if you looked at him during the game he just looked really really defeated but in his defense there's only so much he can do when the rest of his team are performing ok let's go to moscow and get some reaction our correspondent jonathan crane is standing by there for strength and you've been telling us this is week that. messi is a kind of hero in russia what's been the reaction to argentina's defeat his defeat his hero as if you will. yes a hero indeed if you ask any russian circle found that most excited to see this woke up i guarantee you most of them will say now messi there's so much disappointment here one fan i was just speaking to was saying the company of how
messy can have so much success with fossilised and then badly with argentina now where you can trust that disappointment with the argentinian friends that absolutely furious and much of that anger is directed at the coach jorge somehow they say he's the main reason this is all going wrong that they are reasonably optimistic they can still progress in this tournament because from an atmosphere point to be you have to hard they do they've been the noisiest by far here in red square and other central locations in moscow so if argentina do make an early exit their fans will go with them and that would be a massive shame you're saying that some are still optimistic argentina's chances but this result doesn't really bode well for them doesn't. it doesn't bode well that sort of that will have a very nervous eye on iceland's match with nigeria later because if i said managed to win that then often seen a really are on the brink of elimination it isn't in their own hands as we were hearing even if they beat nigeria in their final match and even if they beat them
handsomely it won't guarantee them a place in the knockout stages but based on what we've seen so far that's a long way off they were shambolic against croatia defensively a mess they offered very little going forward and i mean he was saying they rely too heavily on lean on messi and that makes them very very predictable easy to defend against they scraped through qualify i'm here at risk of going out of the first hurdle here so shambolic argentina making the big headline there but that wasn't the only game on thursday wasn't enough france beat through one zero and that means france earned their spot in the knockout stages of the world cup whereas pru has to travel home after the group phase and the frenchman really looked improved from their first appearance and they're starting to feel why they're actually also favorites to win the world cup and denmark and australia tied one all which leaves both teams with a fighting chance still still a lot of suspense in this tournament jonathan in moscow what do we have to look forward to today. well first up today we have brazil taking on
costa rica now as we've been hearing is going to bad world cup with some of the game's biggest and egypt out messi having problems as we know is the name brazil will hope to reverse that trend brazil in many ways in a similar position to argentina this time yesterday they drew that reckoning day and say that still looking for their first win of this tournament they'll be boosted by the news the name of looks to have shaken off a injury he sustained during training the costa rica's said neymar will be marked by at least two defenders say that no can make it easy for him as you might expect of brazil have only lost once to chris to costa rica that was all the way back in one thousand nine hundred sixty now and as i was saying i've been take on nigeria after that and the evening game is the other match in brazil as a group featuring. switzerland in beautiful weather looks like to johnson for the turn of the today johnson crane in moscow and we'll do it all shows from sports both here in berlin thanks. you're watching g.w. news coming to you live from berlin we have more at the top of the hour end of
