look to the future. with them. today we must find the courage together to open a new chapter. we all were to europe because we are not yet fully aware of the importance of the times we live in. mccomb made an impassioned call for france and germany to work together that only that way could europe tackle challenges from climate change to migration. that is why europe must be stronger that is why it must be more sovereign because it will not be able to play its role if it becomes the placing of the world's top powers if it doesn't take more responsibility for its defense and security and its content to play a secondary role on the world stage. as was met with applause also from the german chancellor with whom i call has been holding talks on the
10:03 pm
reforms this last week. it's wonderful that you are our guests here today and i'm sure many and such an impressive speech that made it clear once again just how important german french cooperation and friendship is and just how important it is in a peon context earlier on sunday america than my car laid wreaths at germany's central memorial for those killed in war their countries through time opposite sides and both world wars making the two leaders remembering together a strong symbol of reconsolidation and peace. and with me in the studio now is to belmont then he's a journalist from his they call paris tivo thanks for being with us so we heard micron there talking about greater european integration but at the same time we
10:04 pm
heard him speak quite a bit about sovereignty how do you reconcile these two somewhat different priorities well i think for michael the both go hand in hand what he promises to the french that is and is. to protect them and also to european citizens to protect them and sort of europeans over and he economy can political differential the only way to achieve that is being stronger together and more and what good is goes through more integration if you take the euro from spreads his conviction is. the euro will be stronger against the dollar that's called currency seventy if we don't how you was in the budget for instance a strong currency that's goes hand in hand for him but these are of course difficult times we have the u.k. poised to leave the european union there's quite a lot of euro skepticism elsewhere in europe how does micron think that greater you
10:05 pm
integration can be achieved i think that's precisely the point. michael but also america i think see those threats like the brics it or maybe the direction of the donald trump has one more argument to integrate the european union more than before of course you have this. force against integration we have the one i see a lot of us in the us not in france if they in germany it makes it more difficult to achieve more integration but exist some time this thread to make it more i think understandable for the other part of the population to to to make a stronger. hold to join forces together and now you're talking about these external threats but we have to mention internally micron and merkel also are facing quite a lot of pressure and do they have the necessary authority to get these e.u. reforms to happen briefly if you can yeah well we obviously we we've just seen this
10:06 pm

10:09 pm
many are not sure whether leaving the e.u. is the right thing to do after all. i was in favor of leaving and when it's a leave. i knew that there would be struggles all of the mess that is going on is has brought me to a point where i almost regret the decision to leave twenty four year old mitchell in the technology industry he had trusted british politicians to deliver on that promise to secure a good brakes a deal now he has doubts about whether a bet is possible if you see how much of a mess things up as you come into there's no structural no one knows where it's going to go there's lots of uncertainty but the moment i feel that we should probably we should stay not far away suit connelly of the local conservative party is just as unhappy with the draft breaks a deal as mitchell but for her the answer cannot be. to stay in the i think that with green men. basically it's not what we want it's not what we foti
10:10 pm
for we didn't vote for a load of. up in westminster. total mess of the and you know the snow so we won't we will we will now. sue connelly things for young people from a wrong and doubting belief out but back in the snooker club mitchell believes that britons perhaps shouldn't have been asked to vote on the issue in the first place i want to kind of. a decision like this was something as complex as europe has been put in my hands because being honest i don't understand. the prime minister understands it so how are we making the decisions. this is a thing everyone has an opinion but no one knows what should happen now with all of the unfolding uncertainty and chaos young people i'm not sure that the bracks of game can be won any more. than joining us now from westminster is d.w. correspondent barbara vessel so barbara i think it's safe to say that he has had
10:11 pm
a rather difficult week she says so herself in a t.v. interview today and she also of course continued to defend her breaks the deal how does she come across. or she comes across as a woman who is signed it didn't determine to fight to call the last week for her rather difficult week of course is the understatement of the day it's been me it's been completed dr king used to divide to reason me to get this interview that she would not step away that she would push this deal through and she demanded from her opponents in that group so far enemy to follow her unless there was a stretch imply. let's hear what the prime minister has to say. you know change of leadership at this point isn't going to make
10:12 pm
a negotiations any easier and it's not going to change the parliamentary arithmetic what it will do what it will do is bring in a degree of uncertainty that's uncertainty for people. what it will do is mean that is a risk that actually we delay the considerations and that's a risk that wrecks it gets to lend or frustrations. what she telling us there it's quite obvious because she's telling our enemies and the whole gaggle off for opponents within her own party and of course on the opposition benches if you shoot me down things will get worse because then we might end up with no breaks at everybody and bridges seems to begin to understand what that means or you will get no bricks at all and then of course is directed at her enemies with in the tory party telling them if you still want to break this is your only and one chance. well there has been some talk of possibly renegotiating the draft deal or at least
10:13 pm
parts of it but barbara what is brussels likely to make of this. brussels of course is wringing their hands and tearing their hair for days because they watch the kaos in westminster and start to watch are they doing there you mean these mean negotiations have been dragging on from months and months and many late nights and now there is just cold to renegotiate however the spirit driesum a knows that it is not doable the bricks and deal the actual divorce agreement those five hundred eighty five pages of legal text they will not be true or not and they will not be reopened there is nothing going on there however what she can achieve and what she's trying to do at brussels in brussels is to put some more let's say a sweet language and a bit more love into these so called political declaration dealing with the future relationship between the united kingdom and the european union and that of course
