10:02 pm
for a broad based european approach to migration. if there's any doubt thanks chancellor merkel was greeted by applause. thank you for joining her speech the atmosphere was emotionally charged was thank god thank you i've been that while i'm actually enjoying this that doesn't bother me i also come from a parliament that had been a major point of contention with some polman terry and merkel strong call for a true european army. you know. a common european army would show the world that there will never be war again among the european nations and that's nothing against nato you know me a gig come on ladies and gentlemen it's in addition to nato vote again and nobody wants to cut established time assuming. that raise doubts even among supporters

of the plan which has not yet produced any concrete steps was action told small than words we have to decide to work together and then we will gradually get there but you know grab visions without putting your money where your mouth piece is pointless so often also high on medicals agenda another difficult issue of the reform of the european asylum process over missiles from the moon that we have to make the effort and find common ground for sensitive issues like asylum law and humanitarian responsibility otherwise we'll never solve the migration and refugee issue cuts from what was really tangible in the room was the deep appreciation for her leadership a very long standing ovation which also kind of felt like a bit of a goodbye salute mikkel also had words for those who did not applaud there are
10:04 pm
things i can see i hit the nail on the head because if you protest that's all right through even for a confident finish to a confident performance with the clock ticking down on her final term has stressed that she wants leadership in europe to be part of her legacy. to say it was legacy building that we saw all today to talk about that here at the big table and joined by cornelius on the bar he is with the german council on foreign relations for me it's good to see you again let me let me ask you what was going merkel doing today was she doing was it a first attempt at legacy building with this speech possibly of course she was invited to speak at the european power. and like other leaders have been invited before her there is a series of speeches now being given by current heads of state and government but obviously with around the circumstances that for her here in germany part of it was the expectation was that she would deliver a speech outlining her vision of europe she's never been so good at visions
10:05 pm
outlining visions but what she delivered here especially this point around the european army was unheard of before so maybe this is something that people took note of were you surprised that she came out so strongly and said i want a european army well that's definitely something she hasn't said before i would say we are in these times where president mccraw france he raised this issue last week just before the commemoration of the one hundred years and of the first world war i think this is also the senate races have probably left a mark on her she raised the army issue and said that this would be a sign that the europeans would never fight against one another so building an army means that you overcome even the possibility of going to war again so i think this is part of the strong symbolism that she has aligned with as it is that risk today of european countries going to war is it stronger today than it was twenty years ago i think twenty years ago it was thought to be near impossible these days some
10:06 pm
people with you know the european union becoming a little bit smaller the u.k. on its way out people hadn't thought about the idea that this that the trend of european integration could be reversed actually so maybe these days people are having a little more doubt i'm not saying that there is any reason for doubt but the world is. is a little bit uncertain around europe old alliances the transatlantic alliance isn't soul reliable anymore so people asking questions these days and you say that she was lending her support to emanuel mccrone by saying she wants this european army could another mode. evading factor have been double trouble he has been tweeting the last several days attacking micron's accusing france of trying to build an army that could fight against the united states which we know that's not what micron has said i was going to say that's bonkers and maybe she was. she's picked a fight with don from before it's nearly one and
10:07 pm
a half years since she said that in her own special way we conned always rely on our partners anymore and in that sense she hasn't given mccrone much when it comes to e.u. reforms that she was supporting him on this particular project and they've spent the weekend in this combination services so i would bill it as something where she she lends support on a case where she feels she can support them rather than the difficult issues of eurozone reform which accounted for you know maybe he was expecting a little bit more today but i guess maybe in paris tonight they're thinking something is better than nothing. the european union of britain have struck a draft deal on the terms of a brics it withdrawal agreement british prime minister to resign may summon the cabinet ministers for one to one talks to brief them on the terms of the deal she's
