trade here's a bit of what he had to say let's sell us watch. i don't have a common goal we're determined to reach an agreement on the withdrawal of the united kingdom an orderly withdrawal. and we wish to outline together the framework of a future relationship. he said i need there are speaking a little earlier on while the countdown is on the clock is ticking and there's not a lot of time left before the deadline of march twenty ninth is covering this story for us in brussels and again that was a very damning a progress report that we heard there from use to break that negotiator are they headed to a no deal scenario it is clearly one of the scenarios that is on the table that is something that we shared by many of the chief negotiator for the e.u. twenty seven member countries has emphasized over and over again these past five rounds i've heard him say that many times and he also said however that is not

something the e.u. twenty seven hoped to aim for and he also made clear that the e.u. is very keen to keep the structure they agreed structure of these talks and that is first phase one. so they work out the divorce deal and then phase two they talk about a future relationship and giving the u.k. the chance to meddle the two would mean at least from your perspective that all former commitments of the u.k. in the current you could be used as a bargaining chip for a future relationship all right now garrick or we've also heard from briggs at shifa negotiator davis he has urged your leaders to take a step forward and has been saying and i'm quoting at the teams are continuing to work constructively constructively oh he's describing very different talks are we are we talking about alternative realities here or just differences in perspective . i think too that i lemma essentially is that there are different perspectives
3:04 pm
it's the for the e.u. this is a lose lose situation they never wanted the u.k. to leave whereas for the u.k. side at least for those who campaigned in favor of bracks that they will hope to make this a success and to some extent that's a position is reflected when david davis keeps laughing in these. difficult negotiations when he talks about a substantial progress for instance when he says you know things are moving forward while his counterpart is saying we're in a deadlock and that is the ultimate also for the u.k. that they have to negotiate on something where later they have to say it's a success and the out of the likely outcome at the moment is either no deal or norway deal which would mean everything stays as it is but the u.k. would have no more say in the decisions of the e.u. institutions taking that into account again what you've just been reporting both
3:05 pm
sides needing to say face what's the possible way forward the very hard to say there's some talk about a transitional phase we're currently we're down to seventeen months to go now you have to substract a couple of months because any deal that would be agreed any future deal if we get to phase two would have to be agreed by european parliament's so it's a really it's a deadlock now and we'll have to see who blinks first in this game of chicken right to get miles reporting from brussels thank you. all right want to tell you now about to some of the other stories making news around the world. spain is celebrating its annual national day this comes as the political crisis over catalonia deepens further with its leaders given until monday to clarify whether or not the region has declared independence tens of thousands of people are marking the holiday in the capital madrid joining king philippe as a military parade marches through the streets. at least thirty seven people are

3:07 pm
a major sticking point just over a decade ago hamas won parliamentarian elections in the gaza strip and then oust offensive from the territory but last week palestinian prime minister hun blood and a large delegation affected officials made their first official trip to the territory in two years while this is considered a major step to words reconciliation. and our very own kind of creamer joins us now from jerusalem she has reported extensively on the reconciliation process between hamas and fattah hand that we're glad to have are here with us a time to can you tell us a little more about the deal. well we understand that the deal of this document has been signed in cairo in a very short ceremony why haven't the sense to this of hamas and fatah is a more general word paper which entails that there's a full agreement between the two sides and the palestinian authority or the palestinian government of consensus and unity will be unable to take over the

in the u.s. where the question on many policymakers mind today is whether donald trump will rip up an international nuclear deal with tehran the president could soon tell us lawmakers that the landmark agreement is not in the country's interest he's facing tough opposition even from within his own party the head of the house foreign affairs committee called on the president to quote and force the hell out of the deal but in a televised interview on wednesday trump made his view clear it was it's a very bad deal i'm not saying anything different tonight that i have been saying for two years that it's a horrible horrible embarrassment to our country but i'm going to get it out of weakness when actually we had great strength all right and we've got lots more on this subject joining me from and then talk about today he is a political analyst an expert on iranian affairs a very good day sir what are the chances that the nuclear deal with iran a could fall apart. i believe donald trump is certainly trying to
3:13 pm
create a crisis for safeguarding the agreement he has so far not taken any policy measure not adopted a policy not sure measured how we have it we are leaving his words his tweets you're reading his tweets but no actual policy so he will start creating a crisis but it's up to congress to then actually adopted measures or not adopt measures that will decide the fate of the j c p o of the nuclear agreement and now is this agreement done for without the u.s. i mean will the europeans carry on trading with iran even if trump revokes the deal how imperative is is the u.s. is involvement. it is certainly think it will have to deal survives without the u.s. it will minimize for the first for the short and medium term the economic benefits iran wanted to gain from the agreement but if you europeans and the eastern powers russia and china are creative enough they may find in the long term new mechanisms of ensuring businesses entering that iranian market so that the economic benefit is
3:14 pm
there for the iranians and if the political relations between europe and the iran remain intact iran will also benefit politically therefore the deal can survive all right and of course speaking about this it will also have to mention israel because israel argues that iran is not holding up its end of the bargain that they have a point. i would disagree because the voices we were hearing from the israeli security establishment is are not that negative about the deal they have been concerned about iran reaching nuclear weapons capability does it remit is effectively undermining this so from israel there is also strong support for the agreement as such that benjamin netanyahu government however has voiced different opinions but that i believe is more of a political opinion not a security related oh my god none of us have i in that disallows thank you for a way and. and we've got lots more to tell you about to hear is
