eighty six people from the flimsy. germany's main parties have begun a second day of talks aimed at forming a new government angela merkel's conservatives and the social democrats have governed in a coalition for the past four years but both have been eager to promise voters a fresh start that after they scored historically poor results in september's elections today it is europe that is up for discrimination that is up for discussion rather a vital pillar of germany's foreign policy. it was the cd used turn to host exploratory talks between the anglo americas conservative block and the social democrats on the second day of the negotiations europe top the agenda is to be dealing himself a former president of the european parliament wants germany to play a stronger role with the. europe must be one of the new government's maint. topics no matter what the government might look like that is why i hope that i'm glad to
4:10 pm
see who find i will be able to reach an agreement today that allows germany to once again be the motor of the e.u. at least this is our common goal. in front of your mind so i must see you the negotiating parties had agreed up front on maintaining confidentiality most statements today reflect this the information on potential agreements remains relatively sparse but some came through anyway most probably the conservatives and the social democrats have found a compromise on taxes they agree to raise the bar for a top income tax rate but officials refused to comment. if we all put in some effort and the mood remains as good as house been in the past few days then maybe we can achieve something a lot of work still lies ahead of us. the talks will go on until thursday then the parties will have to decide whether they want to enter into more specific negotiations the social democrats will even hold an extra party
4:11 pm
convention at the end of the month. and covering the talks of the c.d.u. headquarters in berlin is our political correspondent charles potts who joins us now welcome to charlotte we know that these exploratory talks that they're set to continue until thursday and there's a lot at stake right now for anglo american right. everything is really at stake for chancellor merkel it's a make or break moment these talks for her she has to convince her party leadership and also the social democrats that's another grand coalition a grand coalition two point zero and a continuation so of the last four years is a good idea and there's a lot of opposition against that in both parties more on the grassroots so she has a lot to do if these talks fail that would mean that there is there are two options left in minority government which tends to america has already said that she does not want to go into or new elections and if new elections are called and the big
4:12 pm
question is what she posts again as the leader of her party as the head of a party and could there be another four chance or so it might very well if these talks fail be the end of her chancellorship so the big question then is what is the atmosphere there this week do they have the potential to strike a deal in order to govern together what are you hearing about that. well the atmosphere is generally good productive if they want to come to a conclusion by thursday they want to have a paper which clearly states what they want to accomplish in the next four years and that paper they want to take into both parties especially the social democrats they will have their grass roots and their delegates at a party convention vote on that and that is the tricky part because the leadership off the social democrats particularly has to convince their party membership that this is a good idea and again there's
4:13 pm
a lot of opposition in the party here and they've been pretty strong armed actually into this position they did not want to enter into negotiations necessarily from the very beginning so tell us what are the biggest sticking points going into this . well well today they they both parties are discussing the issue of europe where they generally agree on the issue that there should be further integration both christian democrats and social democrats are generally on the side of a man with a mark always pushing for further integration the french president the social democrats a bit more they want more financial responsibility also from germany on the part of the european union but the big sticking points on migration and the issue of health care insurance in terms of migration the issue of family reunifications for refugees from civil war torn areas and in terms of health care insurance that is
4:14 pm
really a very contentious issue the social democrats want to abolish the private health care insurance here in germany and that is something where most christian democrats have already said that they are not going to rally behind it so it's going to be very interesting discussions until thursday and we'll see what they will conclude until then charlotte potts with the latest from berlin thank you. in sports news the man accused of orchestrating a bomb attack on the dortmund team bus in april of last year has confessed his guilt in court three devices were detonated in the incident which injured defender marc bartra and suspect sir he is charged with twenty eight counts of attempted murder he has admitted responsibility for the explosions but denies that he intended to harm anyone it is believed that he had speculated on a fall in the club's share price from which he stood to gain half a million euros in profit. now if you thought h.t.
