only being discussed right now but according to a draft document it's looking likely that they will hand britain a short said the late. theresa may spoke to the media earlier when she arrived for the high stakes talks in brussels take a lesson what is important is that parliament delivers on the results of the referendum and that we do little tricks it for the british people i sincerely hope we can do that with a deal i'm still working on ensuring the parliament can agree a deal so that we can leave in an orderly way what matters is that we deliver on the bench of the british people for the take care of prime minister preferred what matters is what matters is that we recognise that breaks it is the decision of the british people. all right joining me now from brussels is our g w brussels bureau chief max hoffman max we've been waiting we were expecting an announcement hours ago there was a press conference scheduled no one has yet to emerge from those talks we're hearing there's a lot of different options being discussed for it
11:03 pm
a potential extension but can you tell us what the latest. well it's taking longer because the leaders decided to draft the passage of the conclusions by themselves that is quite unusual it's happened before but normally you have the sherpas who prepare this and the leaders just change a word or two or just wave it through now it's different so you have twenty seven heads of state and government with their own ideas about how this should play out. this takes time of course but there are a couple of key dates emerging that seemed likely to be part of this conclusion the first one is the twenty second of may as we understand right now the twenty second of may will be the extension date if the house of commons in the u.k. approves of the withdrawal agreement next week if they don't do that then there will be an extension until the eleventh or twelfth of april we're not sure about
11:04 pm
that yet so not a long time and then the u.k. has to decide whether they want to participate in the e.u. elections or not and if they do want to participate in the e.u. elections then an even longer extension would be discussed so all very complicated lots of different dates and extensions but the important thing is they seem to be trying to avert a last minute summit here in brussels next week so they don't want to go until literally the last day to resolve this or at least to give everybody a little more time they want to solve this at least for the time being today. max i mean we are nearing the end of a long road it's been nearly two years since threesome a triggered article fifty. so we're hearing an extension maybe of a few weeks maybe of a month or so what difference will an extension really make here. we don't know it might not make a difference at all you're absolutely right about that it might make the difference
11:05 pm
that recent days no longer prime minister it might make the difference that the house of commons finally finds a position a majority for something it might also just give the pollard is involved a little more time to prepare for the worst meeting and no deal bragg's it so i can't really tell you all because we don't know so many. variables that need to be clarified within the next weeks. max hoffman standing by there at that e.u. summit in brussels waiting for those leaders or come out of that room with some sort of confirmation of the deal thank you very much max. in the meantime let's get you caught up on some of the other stories making news around the world more than eighty people have drowned after a ferry sank in the iraqi city of mosul according to an official most of the dead are women and children the boat had been ferrying passengers to a recreational island on the river tigris when it capsized. former brazilian

11:20 pm
a majority stake in the greek port of paris in the mediterranean tree asked in the northern adriatic would be a further foothold in the region. the european union is investing around one hundred thirty five million euros in the port that sorely needed to modernize much of the infrastructure. put cash strapped is really also welcomes financial backing from china there's only occasional criticism of its role as a strategic investor. but you go home so they only. anyone is thinking about the role china is taking on in the world but if i just think about how they treat their workers then i don't know if they're the right partner for us and with that can have a good future but it would be worth the trouble such concerns aside most interests see only positives in becoming a further gateway to europe for china's belt and road initiative which now there are some rules that the new york stock exchange has upheld to this day one of them

a new record and exceed the former record that still holds from the year two thousand we remember the time of the dr called bubble in the next couple of weeks and months we get some other heavyweights coming here to the stock exchange and of next week we will get lift a little later we will get other companies like we work a pin to rest. or be my follow and now for levi's they could probably use the money and also a try to attract more women than if we look at past year the overall five point six billion dollars in revenue for four billion god made with men so female business is still far behind when it comes to levi's. and scored a reporting from new york there is triangle on one of africa's leading oil producers so you think the country would be awash with cheap fuel well that's not
