one thing left to do. ron had to call him. a proposal from the parliament floor we'll have the answer later on the day. we begin the day with the latest version of the motto breaks it means breaks it it reads as follows breaks it means writes it except in northern ireland and perhaps scotland and why not add london to the list theresa may the mother of that motto met european commission president john paul two younger today for lunch in the hopes of clinching a deal to take breaks it talks to the next level well that was not on the menu we know tonight that theresa may was open to a deal northern ireland to stay within the e.u. common market for the sake of peace and stability on the irish border an exception to the british rule well the conservative party in northern ireland got wind of
11:06 pm
this and came out publicly demanding northern ireland exit the e.u. on the same terms as the rest of britain and with that to recent may's lunchtime hopes were dashed and was awarded. despite our best efforts and to significant progress we and our teams have made over the past days on the street main move toward issues it was not possible to reach a complete agreement today. we know have a common understanding on most relevant issues was just to us we open for discussion. for consideration for the negotiation and further discussion as president has said we have had a constructive meeting today both sides have been working hard in good faith we've been negotiating hard and a lot of progress has been made and on many of the issues there is
11:07 pm
a common understanding but it is clear and it's clear crucially that we want to move forward together but on a couple of issues some difference is do remain which require further negotiation and consultation and those will continue but we will reconvene before the end of the week and i am also confident that we will conclude this positively. thank you. if there's a lot of bureaucracy there to filter through let's find out what is going on to do that i'm joined by our correspondents barbara vessel in brussels and bearded mohsin one good evening to both of you believe me start with you theresa may zhong called younger they were very optimistic when they went into this lunch meeting today when they came out. they certainly had not had dessert what happened. yeah dessert was not served because they had hard and constructive talks which is diplomatic speak for it was quite terrible obviously they couldn't move on during
11:08 pm
the weekend a draft resolution had been circulating about ireland how to avoid a hard border an island and the magic formula was there should be regulatory alignment between the two sides that means in plain speech it should be more or less the same in both sides off the future border and however at the last minute this deal was scuppered and all fingers are now pointing towards the d u p.t. the northern ireland unionist party and our need for a senate it's her fault yeah i think it's her fault and bigger i want to ask you about that first so let's take a listen to what the yeah what arlene forrester said from the day you feed today when she got word of the plan for this exception for northern ireland take a listen. we have been very clear in northern ireland must meet the european
11:09 pm
union on the same terms as the rest of the united kingdom and we will not accept any form of regulatory divergence which separates northern ireland economically or politically from the rest of the u.k.'s so big it did we just see the northern irish already start breaks it talks in their tracks is that what we were just watching. well possibly is what british media are reporting we of course really officially confirm it but also it's what the irish t. shirt has been sort of suggesting he said that there was an agreement there had been make read with him with that reason may with you but then it didn't happen that he was disappointed that this couldn't go through however it's not really is a price because we knew that northern ireland would be a major stumbling block we knew that the d u p the unionist really want to do
11:10 pm
everything in their power not have any border between northern ireland and the u.k. this is for them the most important thing they want to stay close to the u.k. they don't want something like korean if you k. chanelle fallen by the back door by having northern ireland and the republic be sort of with the same regime but not the u.k. so this is really not a surprise that we had this reaction from the d u p today and what has happened with this beer get now if recent mayors willing to talk about an exception for northern ireland well can scotland also asked for an exception london can't wondered also ask for an exception isn't this a pandora's box there's been a yes for sure and i mean they have been asking for nicolas sturgeon first been to scotland she came forward immediately and said well if northern ireland gets a special treatment we also want to stay in the single market scotland never wanted
11:11 pm
to leave the e.u. scotland voted against bracks it and of course london as well london voted against rex it so everybody it will come and make their demands so it's very very tricky situation for tourism indeed and barbara i mean you see things from where you're sitting i mean you know the cynic in some of us could look at this and say that maybe theresa may is her strategy here is to actually kill brags that before it happens. that would of course be a very extensive interpretation of this fusion one that of course in many of british media has already been aired during the last days and said this was the most certain way to sort of go underneath it however what will have on the ground here in brussels is that talk will continue this week with a lot of skepticism because frustrations are already sky high here and nobody really knows how to you know where a possible solution could be after this don if this deal that was
11:12 pm
a more or less on the table has been killed at the last moment then what now do it to now and we know the president of the european council. last friday marla's handed the veto to island he was in dublin and he said no decision at the e.u. summit next week will be taken against or without you so it's really now the ball is in the court of the irish they can now say whether they want to go ahead and let britain go ahead respects the talks next you go in to face to talk about the future and a trade deal or not so dublin has the key you know double has the power who would have thought that would be the case today for visa force on the story in brussels big muscle mystery force in london to both of you thank you. well still to come on the day syria's lost generation we'll look at the plight of more than a million the child refugees in turkey now many are for growing and education
11:13 pm
simply to help support their family. well tonight speculation is growing that u.s. president donald trump could announce this week plans to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel now it would be more symbolic and it would fall short of trump's campaign promise to move the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem yet warnings of the risks and the dangers attached to any change have been fierce and lal the palestinian president mahmoud abbas has reportedly been on the phone nonstop with world leaders trying to get them to pressure trump turkey has warned that a unilateral change by the u.s. could end any hopes for a mideast peace. the status of jerusalem and temple mount have been determined by international agreements it is important to preserve jerusalem status for the sake of protecting peace in the region if a step is taken which alters the status of jerusalem that would be a major catastrophe. i'm joined here now at the table biographer baker he is
11:14 pm
a middle east analyst he's also a former advisor to the palestinian authority i mean it's good to have you back on the show. margaret abbas as i said they are reportedly has been on the phone nonstop talking to world leaders first of all what can he say to them and who can he speak to to actually effect change and to change don't want trans mine i mean i don't know if anyone can change donald trump spy and i think the only one who can do that is donald trump and some times i wonder if even he knows what he's doing at the moment and if he goes through with this it's it's it's going to be a catastrophe for all involved everyone whether he goes through that first step of either moving the embassy to jerusalem or simply to recognize why are we are we talking about different levels of of dangers here let me let's start with what is most likely recognizing jerusalem as the capital but no move of the embassy that's
11:15 pm
like being half pregnant and there's no such thing if if he if he goes through one he might as well go through the other number but what would happen though if he if he goes with this more symbolic move and say ok jerusalem is the capital you would have an explosion any change to the status quo which is miserable in and of itself divide but any change any unilateral change of that status quo and at that magnitude will have an equal and opposite reaction and that is going to be so disastrous for everybody involved in the middle east and simply so donald trump can deflect from his own domestic internal problems and the russian flare flynn and i mean do you think that's what we're seeing here is this a a tactic to distract i think donald trump is like a child he's a child and he thinks that ok all of the u.s.
11:16 pm
presidents republican and democrat. i have signed this way recent one thousand nine hundred five every six months i don't want to do that i'm going to do something else and at the same time he keeps doing this to deflect any kind of attention because he believes that it's going to take a special prosecutor miller off off off the set and it won't mean he's ok so there's in the domestic you know considerations i mean you know we could talk all day about that. but let's talk about inside israel there is opposition to any change not from benjamin netanyahu but bigger netanyahu in his camp are they concerned at all about the security issues for israel if this decision is made now because benjamin netanyahu sees. in a way like trump that this is zero sum game benjamin netanyahu always thinks he's always looking to the short term to try to get these so-called victories and there will be fear of victories because in the end it will lead to nothing but no more
11:17 pm
and more conflict more bloodshed more death it will lead and even the short end of the long term two problems also for israel and for its for its population so it's very much short term thinking and i can't believe that. i hope that someone will have the ability to impress on trump that his words here have real meaning in the real world. he just can't send out a tweet and not expect it to have consequences in the real world and this will but there has there has been in my opinion just looking at the coverage of this the the opposition to the possibility of a change the opposition has been rather muted i would have expected just a welder outcry from friends from from people opposed to any change and what wow do
11:18 pm
you explain that for example the un the un has never recognized the fact that that east jerusalem is under control of israel i mean they want things to go back to the way they were pre-one nine hundred sixty seven so why don't you have the un being more vocal about the possibility of donald trump changing things well i hope they will but this has been kind of doing this under the radar and this is coming out now all of a sudden we've all been focused on all of the domestic issues with donald trump and all of a sudden he pulls this out of the rabbit out of the hat of i'm going to change i'm going to move the embassy to jerusalem and i think there is going to be a lot of opposition and there be a lot of opposition among european governments definitely among the arab governments and among the u.n. i don't know how after the fact i mean that there's the concern right that it will be then too late once the decision has been made it's my hope that all of these governments right now are making representations to the united states through their
11:19 pm
embassies and through their. diplomatic channels to say please don't do this i don't know i'm not privy to these conversations i would hope that that's happening if they're not i hope that all of these world leaders get on the phone and try to tell trump that this is one step too far do not do this you know i think there's a lot of face time taking place right now internationally. as always thanks for your insights appreciate you having pleasure they are. turkey has taken in more refugees from war torn syria than any other country more than three million syrians are registered in turkey the u.n. children's agency eunice out says about one point two million of them are children but living as refugees in turkey means children are forced to grow up very fast. the rattling noise of sawing machines has become the soundtrack of this childhood
