turkey prepares to head to the polls one of the main opposition candidates is stuck behind bars but that's not stopping him from campaigning to unseat turkey's president. to match day two of the world cup is underway with egypt just finished taking on the louisa suarez is your whining group a cut the striker lead his side to victory or are the favorites going to be left for straight. talk thanks for your company everybody. germany is embroiled in a serious political crisis chance on clericals authority publicly challenged by her interior minister horse a hall for her position hanging by a thread after mr safir a member of her very own conservative bloc and sister party the c.s.u.
6:02 pm
went against her say offer wants to implement a plan under which some might once would be turned away at the german border americal has rejected the idea insisting instead on finding a joint european approach. very close governing coalition has begun to won't go over i won't commit policy toward refugees while her own conservative party the c d u still backs her the very and conservatives the c s you are in open rebellion. despite attempts at finding a consensus c.s.u. leaders say a change in policy is needed now. to flaws in the stream of illegal migrants to germany is a big problems of the before and the populace is very critical but it's a political hot potato wherever we go we have to solve this problem now. michael hopes to negotiate a european solution to the migrant issue when e.u. heads of state meet in brussels in two weeks' time she argues that germany
6:03 pm
shouldn't be acting on its own offering a quote to the effect that international problems require international solutions. in the world is highly integrated everything is too interconnected for any individual country to determine its destiny alone very wise words. but germany c.s.u. interior minister horst c. who for wants germany to refuse entry to migrants registered in other countries and he made issue orders to that effect against americans which is the opposition sees this as a political putsch does isis deneuve the government is on thin ice that's obvious this is another attempt from the right wing of the conservatives to launch in a staged put just in a hired. time is running out for the two sides to reach a compromise if they don't. government could be in serious trouble.
6:04 pm
or here to help unpack it all is it obvious chief political correspondent melinda creation joins me now from the parliamentary year studios will in the maya first question for you is two pronged is the chance is this chancellor merkel's the worst crisis and could we see the german culture government affectively collapse over the refugee policy. i think it's certainly her worst power struggle and most definitely her worst within her own party and yes if a compromise isn't found it could bring the government down and that would ensue if for example over the weekend the two sides don't come together in some form we're told that the former finance minister and now head of the parliament. is going to be mediating over the weekend and he is deeply respected both by chancellor merkel's c.d.u. and also by the very and conservatives the party of the interior minister so he may
6:05 pm
find some common ground insiders seem to believe that that will be the case allowing the chancellor to have at least two more weeks to look for a multilateral sustainable e.u. wide compromise on reforming the e.u. system on refugees but if that isn't found that compromise then and and if the interior minister carries out his threat on monday then the chances will have no choice but to fire him his bavarian sister party sister conservative party would then leave the government it would no longer have a majority of the seats in parliament and with that new elections would have to because why is there so much bad blood between misters a offer and chance lango america. they have long had their differences over migration policy since twenty fifteen in fact when the door was opened to that very large influx of refugees but the fact is that the interior
6:06 pm
minister has absolutely upped the pressure here for tactical and purely political reasons there's a very important election coming up in the c.s.u. in his party's heartland bavaria and he's very very eager to look tough on immigration in order to prevent the far right if tea party from making gains the fact is he and the chancellor both signed up to a coalition agreement that specifies that asylum policy will be reformed at e.u. level so he is abrogating his coalition agreement here and essentially for the sake of a regional election now the let's take a look at the latest approval ratings because in for a test a die map of one of the main posters here in germany has published of the following findings in the midst of this political crisis let's take a look. all right now this poll surveyed one thousand and six german voters
6:07 pm
asking them what they thought about the competing migration proposals and now on the table lead that you were outline now the proposal that drew the greatest agreement was the one that called for deportations of asylum seekers whose application has been turned down eighty six percent of those who responded agreed with that premise and only ten percent disagreed ok you've already have the other numbers now. these are numbers. that look at the level of popularity enjoyed by anglo americans coalitions coalition these findings that we just showed you before unfortunately i don't know if we can put them up again please these findings date from before the political turmoil that has erupted people were asked about how satisfied they were with the german government's performance i don't know if we have those numbers again if we can please put them up again because a clear majority as you'll be able to see hopefully almost two thirds admit that
6:08 pm
they were dissatisfied there they are only about a third of voters said they were satisfied with the government's performance all right well those numbers just tell it all if we take these findings at face value it seems most germans support the position of misters they offer. actually we can't draw that conclusion and these this poll was taken before the current current conflict between mr as a whole for and the chancellor and the proposals that were essentially put to the people in that survey were not his specific proposals that he is making essentially the core of mr c. hopers proposal is that germany should act unilaterally right now to basically close its border and send migrants back to the first countries where they were registered that is not what the people were asked to they were asked in this survey
6:09 pm
would they support quicker deportations would they support turning away refugees who didn't have papers now both of those could be parts of a comprehensive asylum reform at e.u. level nothing stands in the way of agreeing on that and in fact the coalition agreement specifies that deportation should occur occur more quickly the chancellor has signed up to that so what we simply see here is that people in germany are definitely concerned about immigration and want clear action that's point number one point number two is level of satisfaction with the government the reason for that can be a lot of things many people never wanted to see a grand coalition in the first place they did not want to see the conservatives go together of the with the social democrats once again both social democrats and c.d.u. voters especially view that as the worst possible option but it was the only one
6:10 pm
the numbers allowed so i don't think we can draw a conclusion about this particular conflict on the basis of that approval rating right things are a lot more intricate and there's a lot more to it than meets the eye of political clearly though million that isn't this a really risky move by mr they offer and his party this c.s.u. i mean these two parties the c.d.u. and the c.s.u. are joined at the hip. could there be a backlash for him down the line absolutely there could and it also could be kamikaze for his party if it were to in fact break with the chancellor's c.d.u. c.s.u. essentially would be left either as a regional party in bavaria or it would have to try to start campaigning at national level and i think its prospects at national level going head to head with the c.d.u. would be slim indeed so it is actually quite hard to see the endgame here either for the c.s.u. or for mr as a whole for himself essential he could be out of
6:11 pm
a job if he enforces his ultimatum if he doesn't he looks weak and so in a way he has allowed this this struggle this conflict to come to a head i think without a very clear endgame for where this is heading on the crane reporting thank you so very much when i bring you up to speed now with some of the other stories making news around the world french president and on my call is calling for profound were forms in europe's migration policy that's after talks with the talian prime minister just to pick on day in paris mccaw said europe's response to mass migration has not adapted to the times he backed conte's plans to create processing centers for asylum seekers in africa. the afghan defense ministry says a u.s. drone strike has killed the leader of pakistan's taliban will they face a law is pakistan's most wanted militant is notorious for ordering the country's

6:13 pm
hitting back against the previous u.s. tariffs on steel and aliment in by imposing levies on american goods worth about three point three billion dollars including on its tariff list bluejeans whiskey motorcycles the e.u. may be united on that matter but on other issues of trade cracks are beginning to show italy's government threatening not to ratify be a used trade deal with canada italians say the agreement doesn't protect regional products like papa john and pressure toll and uncle americal is threatening a tougher stance as well here in a moment where on the brink of a trade war. hey south with tariffs on we'll hit you back that was china's response to the latest twist in a dispute pitting the world's two biggest economies against each other. and if the united states imposes unilateral protectionist measures that harm china's interests we'll react quickly and take the necessary steps to resolutely say all guards are
6:14 pm
fair and legitimate rights are going. a clear statement of intent just a day after us secretary of state mike pompei you met his chinese counterpart in beijing but those diplomatic efforts didn't stop the united states from imposing twenty five percent tariffs on fifty billion dollars worth of chinese goods. meanwhile on the other side of the world another country is vowing to fight back against trans protectionist measures speaking at an event in berlin chancellor angela merkel had this to say. as well as addressing the issue of tariffs on steel and dahlia many m that you use retaliatory measures the economy minister will also tackle the question of the strategic importance of the car industry for u.s. security. right believes
6:15 pm
we should consider the strategic significance of the car industry for the european union in the same way so that we can prepare for an exchange with the united states . for. an exchange is one way to put this but as the war of words heats up it's becoming clear that the white house is aggressive stance on trade it's leaving the united states increasingly isolated from its allies. let's go over to frank. alone is standing by for us our financial correspondent. as soon as i get you there on the screen everybody in the newsroom is asking me if this is now a trade war your. at the poles of germany europe's financial world what do people there think. it's difficult to pin down but i've noticed a reluctance to say that this is a trade war perhaps on the hopes that it would leave the door open to future more
6:16 pm
civil to go she asians and indeed most of the language used in discussing these developments are they feature phrases like on the brink of or closer to as opposed to in a trade war but the fact is these tariffs on chinese products announced by trump will take effect on july sixth customs officers will start collecting duties then the chinese have already said that they will hit back with tariffs of similar scale and strength they've also said all previously negotiated results in their trade negotiations with the us are no longer valid meaning the concessions that they made before it like say agreeing to import more u.s. products might no longer be on the table so any way you look at it it is escalating and if it continues to spiral and we see more rounds of tit for tat action then at some point it is a trade war and i'm not sure you have to wait for the most extreme actions like let's say chinese the chinese throwing out american companies from the country or
6:17 pm
refusing to directly invest in the u.s. to be able to save and how does europe interpret the u.s. as battle plan i mean first we had still an alum in europe tariffs not chinese products. now the steel and aluminum tire of swer framed as a more shoot from the hip strategy from donald trump aimed at protecting a specific sector directly linked to his promises of bringing steel jobs back and that's not normally the way tariffs are used normally tariffs are. there or they're mostly things that you use to strengthen your had the negotiations there not an end to itself but this time around this list of chinese products seem particularly aimed at the sectors that china is looking to dominate in the future in areas like of robotics and artifice. intelligence so really that is a message of challenging china's vision china's future a vision of global leadership and i think that brings an entirely new dimension to
