it was a working dinner that didn't work out so well british prime minister to resign may presented her brakes a proposal to the leaders of the other twenty seven european union countries last night today those e.u. leaders they said the dinner was a british attempts at cherrypicking an attempt but europe refuses to swallow i bring gulf in berlin this is the day. but for sure we would never accept a deal. which would then mange z. european union and the us and its intake for sure. white paper remains the only serious and credible proposition if we if there is no agreement on a deal that is acceptable to the united kingdom the new deal you smoked my working
assumption but let nobody be in any doubt with the top. ten we are prepared and we are preparing for the new deal i'm negotiating and i'm negotiation caught in the interests of the british people the atmosphere today and distil day was much better than to go free which may go so do you have you don't want. also coming up tonight the world anti-doping agency today lifted russia's suspension triggering outrage around the world some calling the decision and insult to the world's clean athletes you know the process stinks and it's been extremely shady how it's gone about you know it's why you see outrage by athletes all around the world right now at the possibility that russia could be reinstated under under these circumstances. when. we begin the day attempting to imagine what
must be going through the mind of british prime minister to resign made tonight she had dinner last night with the leaders of every european union country and presented her brags that proposal a plan that she continues to say is the only plausible plan for britain to leave the e.u. next year in her own conservative party there were more accusations today that her plan is not good enough for the u.k. they call the brics it light and she was asked today yet again with negotiations proving to be so difficult why shouldn't there be a second brights it referendum well again theresa may facing all kinds of opposition at home and as for the dinner last night we learned today that it did not change anyone's mind in fact it drew scathing reactions today from the french president we will never accept a deal. which would then mange the european union and the ins and its integrity i do respect the sovereignty of the british people but i do respect the sovereignty
of the twenty seven of them and us and they decided to join the european union with its roots. and i'm here for size it to protect the interests of my citizen but any of this come on project well the message from mr mccollum was not the only blunt rebuttal to the british prime minister time and time again we heard from e.u. leaders that they will not allow the u.k. to end its membership while trying to walk in some benefits reserved only for e.u. countries we have more now on last night's dinner that did not end with theresa may having her cake and eating it too it all looked so friendly and polite at the outset there certainly was common interest to come up with the deal regarding britain's future relationship with the european union but that didn't happen here. it will have to happen at a make or break meeting in a month. european council president donald to st jacques to britain's plan
regarding its future relationship with the e.u. the british would like to benefit from frictionless trade even though they won't be part of the multinational bloc anymore to escape poured cold water on what britain once every about the shah of the view of the positive elements in that proposed. this i just did framework for economic cooperation. look please because the truth of the single market the e.u. itself would like to continue having seamless trade with northern ireland as if it were still in the single market and customs union however the british prime minister rejected that as her government feels it would economically and constitutionally isolate the u.k. she didn't hesitate to mention the other scenario if there is no agreement on a deal that is acceptable to the united kingdom then it way of preparing for no deal i believe we can get a good deal i believe there is
a growing desire to sit down and ensure that we can achieve a deal french president emmanuel mccall rejected may stand especially as she stated that this is the only deal coming from britain. to define we must defend the single market its coherence and we have reaffirmed our desire not to give up on this matter. this is both in our short medium and long term interests that on there is a vital political and economic interest for the european union in this regard we are today at an hour of truth. and the truth can hurt how much we'll know at the next e.u. summit in october. thank our correspondent max often he is covering that some of force insults for golf good evening to you max so e.u. leaders clearly unimpressed by the british prime minister they say the e.u. leaders talked about compromise theresa may kept talking about europe needing to
evolve in its notion of bragg's that does that mean the ability to reach a deal is now dead the ability to reach a deal is not dead because we're not at the stage yet where both parties really have to give something up what threesome a did here she presented the so-called checkers plan a plan that's been on the table since july but the first time now officially presenting it so the other leaders of the european union weren't necessarily surprised when the criticism was clear the two key points remain what are going to be the future trade ties e.u. leaders not happy with that proposal that the three set may made in the plan and of course the border between northern ireland and ireland also not clear here yet and although they were conciliatory in their tone it was actually quite a quite a nice and you know civilized meeting by by standards of past summits in what they really want they they didn't change their position. max theresa may she
came out of that summit today and saying what she's been saying is and that her proposal remains the only plausible breck's it plan on the table considering that considering what the e.u. leaders have said how big of a setback is this summit for the british prime minister really. i don't think she was really surprised by the outcome because it was announced this would happen and you also have to keep in mind she's playing the home crowd and the other leaders know that as well because she has the party conference of the tories in a couple of weeks back home and that is is a tricky tricky thing a tricky event for her because some say if she gives in too much to the e.u. leaders before that then her job might be at risk so the others the other leaders of the european union want to keep or that's why they were rather nice with her but behind closed doors apparently it's a different story we've been hearing that teresa may even knowledge that it was
necessary to propose something else for the border between northern ireland and ireland and that she would deliver on that within the next week so there is movement here you really have to make the difference between what she's saying for the home crowd and the necessities she has recognized and brought you know we still have some time this is the beginning of the end game we'll see the pressure ramping up over the next weeks and months briefly who do you see perhaps blinking first here the u.k. or the e.u. . the e.u. leaders seem to think that they hold all the cards and there's some truth to that because the e.u. twenty seven are just much more powerful they have the single market and if the u.k. just has a hard brags that they leave everything they've built up over the last decades they have to rebuild all that and it'll take time and they're just now realizing how close those connections are so definitely u.k.
has much more to lose here our correspondent exile been at that e.u. summit in austria on the story for us tonight max thank you. well as if breaks it weren't enough the european union has still not put into place a refugee and migration policy that everyone agrees to it has been three years since that unprecedented influx of migrants into europe in the summer of twenty fifteen there was a surge in people seeking asylum via this passage here through the balkans now that ended two years ago when hungary erected a border fence the you've now estimates around four thousand migrants are stuck just outside the reason near the bosnian border many say they have been the target of violence by border guards or use frank hoffman as more. getting to the e.u. has been an impossible feat for this afghan refugee ever since the book on route
was closed two years ago. made it to serbia last year he recently arrived in the small boston in town of the hutch near the border with craig an e.u. country. and barter minute on sunday night trying to remind the. border to share border when it on out for the gravy train a lot of the. allegations against gration like those spy nyima to love as unmounting reporters took photos during many visits to north west and boss yet to go vino the some refugees this say these injuries were inflicted by creation border police. an hour north of here's one of the border crossings integration into the. we confront a local border police chief with the allegations but he dismisses them.
the croatian police strictly adhere to the law and regulations i emphatically reject every allegation that the creation police are acting unlawfully from. the e.u. border runs right through a former warsaw predominantly muslim be had was heavily contested during the bosnian war and hostages many refugees. in one nine hundred ninety two there were more than fifty thousand refugees here said the number of migrants today is not really so high many think it's high simply because there's no solution in sight. very clear on the story. like often in this multi-ethnic state the nationalist parties of the boss next creations and serfs have been at odds also on this issue and elections are imminent. nationalists here in boston had to govern i have fused to my current question from the beginning
of this election campaign to the nationalists the migrants on issue for the e.u. to resolve since that's where they want to go brussels has given u.n. organizations seven point two million euros this year to help asylum seekers but most in b. have say that's not a viable solution the town has built up a modest tourism industry sensible seymore ended twenty three years ago a model which for example runs a guest house on the river a favorite spot for kayakers and nature lovers especially from the middle east. we have a lot of arab visitors who don't want to get in a situation where the police are checking their i.d.'s and assuming they're migrants that's why fewer of them are coming here now but people still invested heavily in tourism through the pool. and that will inevitably make life for a few chase such as name a two level here even worse many living just outside the e.u.
external borders say the year. merely shifting the problem further down the ball come to that. the german car maker box wagon has denied the claim that it is withdrawing from iran after talks with the us ambassador to germany richard grinnell he has repeatedly tweeted and given interviews and by using european companies to divest from iran or risk retaliation from washington. folks can return to iran to do business last year after a seventeen year absence the german auto giant said it wanted to reestablish a presence in the country it's signed contracts to import several vehicle models to iran. other german companies like b a s f we're also investing in iran but could there be a u. turn the us ambassador to germany richard grenell said b.s.f. is now accessing the rainy and marcus he said that the car giant was complying with
u.s. sanctions against the islamic republic. tweeted b a s f will comply with u.s. sanctions on iran b.s.s. has not yet responded to the ambassador's tweet nor has the w. at least not directly the carmaker says it's complying with all laws and export regulations one is an e.u. law that says european companies don't have to comply with the u.s. sanctions on iran but more companies are choosing to play it safe they fear doing business in iran could hurt their access to the u.s. market that's why carmaker dimer rail operator deutsche bahn and communications company deutsche telekom have all ceased activities in iraq. and from all this some of put our correspondent teri schultz she's on the story for us tonight in brussels good evening to you terry so the company's in the tweet by the
u.s. ambassador i think it was folks wagon. he says that they're leaving the iranian market have they confirmed death that's right we heard that in a tweet from the ambassador but in statements from the companies from v.w. and b a s f they were not that specific what they say is that they're going to comply with national and international laws and that doesn't necessarily mean a leading iran altogether what b.s.f. says is that it's going to leave a business presence but complying with u.s. law at the moment will mean that it can't do business in the oil and gas sector of course one of the most interesting sectors complying with e.u. law means that it can't completely pull out so these companies are definitely caught in the middle and we're not exactly sure how they're going to navigate that just from the u.s. ambassador's tweet despite the threat of you with sanctions the european union is not taking this lying down is it immediate trying to find a way to shield european companies from the sanctions that's right the e.u. is in a difficult position because of course if the u.s. sanctions e.u.
companies that could mean a loss of a lot of money so they are desperately trying to come up with ways to keep their businesses in iran and thereby keep the nuclear deal together so what the the latest is that the e.u. is going to set up a holding company what they call a special purpose vehicle which would act as a as a mediator in these transactions and thereby hopefully avoid u.s. sanctions if if companies want to do business in iran they could transfer money here and it could transfer the money on to iran and it could go the other direction as well so this is just the latest way that the european union is trying to keep its businesses afloat and still keep business booming with tehran. our teri schultz on the story for us tonight in brussels terry thank you. it is a decision on doping in sports that has shocked and outraged many around the world today the world anti-doping agency wada voted to lift a ban on russia's anti-doping agency now that ban was put into place after
a water report accused russia of state backed doping that report also accused russia of attempting to cover up drug abuse when it hosted the two thousand and fourteen sochi winter olympics athletes across the globe are criticizing today's decision to lift the ban calling it an insult to clean athletes. the biggest still ping scandal in sports history might be coming to an end the russian anti-doping agency will be reinstated pending some final technicalities the decision has been heavily criticised by various athletes and national doping agencies but is being celebrated in russia feel reassured this is a first step the important while it opens the way to our sportsmen and our federations to participate in sports competitions moreover it opens an opportunity to host international competitions on russian territory. just before the two
thousand and sixteen rio olympics water investigator richard mclaren revealed russia had adopted a state sponsored doping program in the lead up to the sochi games he concluded more than one thousand russian athletes across thirty sports benefited from the program very quickly we learned that there was a lot more going on than just what went out and so she and once we learned that and it was early days in the investigation yes we were more than surprised to her astonishment at the potential scope of what was going on. to have the ban on its testing the board theory lifted russia still needed to fulfill two conditions the first to accept the finding of mclaren's report the second to release historical data and samples to water for further investigation with all but the last condition fulfilled the executive committee of wada has chosen to place trust in rosado once again but in the process they may have tarnished their own credibility.
well joining me tonight is the german journalist who first broke the story about russian doping it was hot usable to report on russian athletes doping which triggered an investigation leading to russia's anti-doping lab being suspended in two thousand and fifteen by water why it was good to have you on the show i have to ask you what. did you think when you heard the news today that this suspension is going to be lifted from my point of uses of the creation of bankruptcy for fights for clean spalls for all the people really have a serious approach to that very sensitive subject because two conditions have not been fulfilled was this they had very clearly the first one is say the russians had to acknowledge had to accept fully the findings of a medlar report of a state from doping system was participation of the government secondly the to grant full access to the must call up and sensitive data before as
a reinstatement right have never happened so to be honest this is for me that's right way to deal with the subject what do you think happened i mean it's like you said they have not been admitted to state sponsored their being they have not allowed full access to the moscow laboratory so does this mean that water caved into pressure from russia was as it was as tiger that was my feeling on that and some people who and what i were really influenced by the olympic movement in particular but as you see president thomas but from germany himself he was always in favor of the russians he tried his best to get them into the olympics for example what do you think what do you think that is made the evidence is there of the doping so there must be some relation some very close ties between the i.o.c. and tosspot and some of his people very close to him there's no clear. evidence for that but it really looks like and if you have scenes of such he olympic games in two thousand and fourteen we have was also alongside always alongside with protein
and he made really it very clear that he was much in favor of the russians and how they hosted the olympics as a big surprise came afterwards as you know with was unveiling his whole is don't exist this is and you know your investigations you were resulted in russian athletes being banned from the twenty sixteen olympics in brazil they were banned from the winter olympics twenty. union pianka john today's decision what does it mean will russian athletes whether they're clean or not well they have it easier moving forward no doubt that will happen because. we can stave off the russian antidoping agency was a precondition for some federations some international federations to get them again in for example the international biathlon union the international paralympic committee and the international ethics federation all of them have said. once as reinstated as then we can go forward and that happens no that means russians under
a neutral frak without the national anthem that will not happen in the future they are fully accepted and back in the sports how many will this make it easier for russia to once again host major sporting events yes that is correct because the result was reinstated this cannot happen at least it's kind of happens that people refused to. grant that russia. was a big russia with russia was because competitions i'm pretty sure that this is when i take much longer than we have big events again in russia you you know we talked about you being somewhat something of a persona non grata in russia russia denied you a visa to the world cup last summer you have talked about the dangers journalists in russia who try to report on being there what does today's decision mean for our ability to try to get to the truth about athletic sports and there being in russia it's very complicated for independent journalists for people from other countries
to really dig in and to investigate and russia this week we tried again to try to get a visa to russia that we and they rejected it again so it's very obvious that they have no interest. to support journalism and to be honest it's it was possible in two thousand and fourteen because we have been under the radar at that point under the radar there but now. it's completed difference so to be honest to get more information about what really happens in russian sports it's really become very very complicated for doneness i use up what as always we appreciate you taking the time to come on the show with this and sharing your insights thank you thank you. well from nike he jobs too could tour again the first ever exhibition devoted to muslim fashion opens in san francisco this week the exhibition aims to shine a wide on the evolution of a fashion trend inspired by the islamic dress code here's more. a
new perspective on muslim fashion the exhibition hall itself reminiscent of a mosque with the works of some forty five design is contemporary muslim fashion is diverse but it doesn't pretend to be a definitive sort of a. i think it's just posed to deliver a new way and a point i think that it's not suppose we're not trying to solve any problem we're just trying to bring attention to a really exciting sector of. of the fashion world. and it does the works here might be modest in terms of how they cover the body but not their steady cam bishan. songs are also political like celine seaman venoms the us constitution and first amendment flight jacket. true self a piece about identity. but it's not all about beauty all sending
a positive message islamic star has become a burgeoning industry in recent years. been really triggered by an awareness of the spending power of the muslim clientele it's been estimated that forty four billion dollars a year are spent on by muslim women on lot of stress. contemporary muslim fashion the first of its kind dedicated to displaying islamic culture within a fashion context runs until january. or the day is. always the conversation conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter news or you can write directly to me. use the hash tag. every member whatever happens between now and then tomorrow is another day everybody.
