after facing imposed tough news national security that's further raising concerns fashion rights abuses in china. and the united arab emirates alone she's the arab world's 1st mission to moscow the hope truck aims to provide the 1st complete picture that chinese. i'm sure gal welcome to the program you counsel present shall michelle says he's confident a deal on a 750000000000 euro coronavirus recovery package will be breached e.u. leaders are in their 4th day of talks tensions have been running high with the core disagreement concerning how the funds will be distributed the latest proposal includes $390000000000.00 euros of grants and $360000000000.00 of loans that will have to be repaid hit southern states like italy and spain have been pushing for
11:02 pm
bigger grants but a group of so-called frugal northern european countries want the bulk of the money to. but he does loads with more checks on how it's spent so these prime ministers he said become terry says he's cautiously optimistic that the rift can be overcome and hid knowledge that negotiations have been tough to leave that there is a limit that must not be exceeded for the dignity of italy and for the dignity of all the other countries which are going through the acute phase of the crisis under living the most serious consequences we are not joking here it is no time for national navel gazing we are proposing a european solution here and there is no time left for jokes. let's go through this with a w correspondent to tell you in brussels welcome terry so you leaders are now finally in the room together what's on the table. that's right still after yet more delays of hours and getting together they are finally now sitting down with the
11:03 pm
latest proposal from e.u. council president sharma shell this group says you mentioned earlier how much money would be given to these hardest hit countries in france how much would be loans it also includes some measures that are very pleasurable to 2 countries like hungary and poland which would provide some some supervision over how the money is spent and whether these countries are observing what the e.u. considers democratic values and the rule of law there are a lot of very controversial issues packaged up in this recovery fund. michel says that he believes that this latest proposal the latest layout that he's just given leaders is going to be the one that finally allows them to come to agreement on this recovery fund after 4 days of negotiations ok so fingers crossed on the deal over that 750000000000 euros but a bigger issue facing the e.u. late leaders is the blocks trivia in your own budget which still hasn't been set.
11:04 pm
that's right i'm not sure it's a bigger issue in terms of the argument it's a bigger amount of money but that too has now been sort of rejiggered by shoma shell and there are some other controversies that we haven't even been discussing like cuts to climate funding and and you know changes in the way that countries would be required to wean themselves off fossil fuels we haven't even been discussing the climate phil and you know that's usually a very controversial issue here in e.u. budgets so you know they they say that they believe they can get an agreement here but you know there may be new arguments opening up once they can move on from the recovery package on to this 7 year budget. seemingly be nonfood disagreements where it's supposed to be old unified this particular summit does seem to have been particularly bad tempered if not name calling in public profanity and dial warnings why has it been so bad. i don't mean to laugh because it has been pretty bad but i
11:05 pm
mean any time you get you keep people without sleep for that long of course nobody is on their best behavior but more seriously it touches on these old wounds that are reopened every time you need 27 governments to agree on anything the issue of solidarity you've got you know italy and greece and spain the countries that are hardest hit by the corona crisis also hardest hit by the financial crisis and so once again the northern countries which you know we call it we call the frugal is are saying you know their governments isn't good enough why should we have to bail them out yet again that's why shell michele was forced to come back with a smaller amount of grants inverses loans at the same time he may well consider this a success because at the beginning people like dutch prime minister mark rubio were saying i don't want any grants so this truly would be a compromise but again it has reopened all of the old questions about how much solidarity there is in the european union to brussels thank you and
