this is the dubliners line from britain's prime minister presents problems with a backup plan for brett said sorry so may insist there will be no delay in the dates of the u.k. departure from the european union but count her new proposal satisfy the lawmakers who threw out her riginal flag also on the program hopes for an end to nearly fifty years of a rest muslims in mindanao in southern philippines a vote in a referendum on autonomy we'll hear from separatists who've been fighting old our lives.

until gail welcome to the program britain's prime minister has presented palmer with an alternative plan for breakfast that she hopes will win lawmakers support threesome and he was forced to amend riginal deal with the eight you after historic majority of parliamentarians rejected it last week the main sticking point is the so-called irish backstop this is a political insurance policy meant to keep an open border between northern ireland which is part of the u.k. and the i have free public which will remain in the e.u. . supporters of mrs may's conservative party oppose the backstop as does the day you pay the northern irish party that is propping up the prime minister's government is part of his statement. with regard to the backstop despite the changes we have previously agreed there remain two core issues the fear that we

could be trapped in it permanently and concerns over its potential impact on our union if northern ireland is treated differently from the rest of the u.k. so i will be talking to this week to colleagues including in the u.p.a. to consider how we might meet our obligations to the people of northern ireland and ireland in a way that can command the greatest possible support in the house and i will then take conclusions of those discussions back to the e.u. . war from d.w. correspondence a big mass in the london outside the house of parliament and to teri schultz in brussels welcome both let's start with you could we see much difference between teresa mayes original plan and proposal that she put to parliament today. i think that plan b. looks suspiciously like plan a when she said that she's going to include lawmakers in the process but from what i understand this is the next step it's the actual agreement that she hopes to reach with the that's not the withdrawal
6:03 pm
a given so that's not of much hope she's also said that she is going to reassure that she's not going to undermine workers' rights and environmental rights but that's of course pandering to the labor party the trades unions but who knows what the next government will do so those reassurances i don't think worth that much so no we don't really see that this is the aca magical breakthrough and we really see that those positions here in the house of parliament between those who are for a hard regs it and those who want a much closer relationship to the e.u. in the future they're still as entrenched as as they were before i would say so teri schultz in brussels when the british prime minister goes back to brussels and says can we talk again about this deal what will she have to put on the table to say oh this is different and this is different and what the likely response. it's very hard to imagine what she'll come back with because she has come back several
6:04 pm
times in the past asking for things that were at times called reassurances that other times called concessions and all the e.u. was willing to do at that point was to say look none of us want the irish backstop to go into effect because of course we want a deal and if it does we wanted to be temporary just like you would so i don't see what she's expecting new leaders to say with any reconfiguration of what she was she talked about today in fact foreign ministers met here in brussels today and there was absolutely no sign that anyone was going to budge on the irish backstopping in fact several of them reinforced that they were one hundred percent behind ireland and the irish foreign minister said look this is not something that's negotiable so i really can't see any room for maneuver for two reason may on this issue of the backstop so burgomaster the prime minister that has made some domestic political. tweaks to this deal it's not enough to get the parliament behind it. i really can't see how she can get parliament behind
6:05 pm
it palm and is really looking to to block no deal broke so there are many that really don't want to do this and they are looking to amend the whole process there's going to be more bills put in place in order to prevent just that they also are asking to extend article fifty so there's going to be a vote on those motions that maybe is going to bring some new movement and a sole issue but to get polman behind the plan a or plan b. you're however what you would you call it at this moment looks pretty unrealistic ok terry show. the e.u. has done a good job of speaking with one voice on the over the last two years on this issue is that unity holding. it is so far you know today the polish foreign minister came out and said hey guys what do you think about putting a five year time limit on the irish backstop would that be enough to get the
6:06 pm
british parliament behind this deal and could we agree to that and he was immediately shut up the irish foreign minister said no but the german foreign minister said no not going to put a time limit on something that is a worst case scenario in the first place so that doesn't seem to be breaking the unanimity on the iris backstop so yeah they've been holding up pretty well and i don't think the reason may is going to be able to to to break this nobody wants to reopen that withdrawal agreement today shows and brussels budget mass in london thank you both. israel's ministry says its jets have struck iranian military targets in syria including it says munitions facilities and intelligence sites you know it's meant as a red departure from israel's notably ambiguous statements concerning its activities in syria the strikes were in response to rocket that iranian forces fired towards israel on sunday which was itself

the main reason for the conflict is oppression we're defending our rights our land we feel that we're being occupied by outsiders nothing is ours they're taking away what's ours and they're not giving it back we always lose out and this is our home and we have nothing. now many here have real hope that could finally change. in a referendum the people of muslim in the now are voting to ratify a law that would grant them more autonomy in return the rebels have to give up their fight like these two gentlemen here many in this rebel camp have been fighters for all their lives often it's the only thing they learned how to do but if the autonomy law gets passed they'll have to take off their uniforms
