a 4 month national lockdown. the united arab emirates launches the arab world's 1st mission to mars the hope probe aims to provide the 1st complete picture of the red planet's atmosphere. and britons that lewis hamilton takes the checkered flag for a record 8 time in the home during ground create the reigning world champion is in ominous form and see goes top of the driver standings with just 7 races left. i'm sumi so much going to thank you for joining us european union leaders have taken a break after their tense summit over a proposed 750000000000 euro coronavirus recovery package went into a 4th day members are split over how much money should be distributed as handouts or as loans that will have to be repaid and whether strings should be attached to enforce the will of law. in some countries hard hit southern states including italy
9:02 am
and spain want to see substantial aid payments but a group of self declared frugal northern european countries want loans and more checks on how the money is spent. let's get some more perspective on the story now we have maria de metis with us she's the deputy director at the european think tank google maria thank you for joining us it is not unusual that we see e.u. member states argue about money but this divide over this aid package seems unprecedented especially this battle over loans versus grants why do you think this is been so divisive. well i think of the what you call the frugal 4 which is actually now 5 countries they are of the opinion that any help that should be given to any country should be in the form of loans and the reason why i've been arguing this is because they are not seeing favor of centralizing more money of putting more money in as often a kitty in the middle that goes out and spreads to those who need it they believe
9:03 am
that this money needs to be to paid back you know to satisfy the demands of their own citizens who simply do not want to see more centralized powers at the you by contrast of the countries of the south who are arguing for more grounds they are very much afraid that if help comes in the form of loans that's simply going to pile up on the debts that they have to pay back and they had to very very high debts to be in with when before they have done that make a start and with epidemic they had to go to the markets and or borrow more so they really warrant that any more loans is simply going to make the burden of the debt unmanageable if we look at the details both sides are haggling over as you said the amount that should be in grants with around $400000000000.00 right now the ballpark what kind of compromise do you expect. well you know that's an interesting one i believe there are 301000 now which is almost like a psychological barrier and the european commission suggestion was of the order of
9:04 am
my commute of 500000000 in the form of grants they're going to be some are going to land somewhere in the middle exactly where i'm not entirely sure i think 450 will probably be a number to aim for but anything above 401 i think would be a good solution so i think this is one of the end up married maria do you think there's any chance that we might not see a deal on the say package. oh no no to our learning her this is this is how you have works in fact if anything europe has reacted to the pandemic crisis if i compare this for example to the way that europe reacted to the financial crisis 10 years ago this is at the speed of light going very very fast however there are 27 people sitting around the table with very different agendas aiming for different things and also with very different problems to have to deal with so you know it takes every long time but there will be a there will be a solution even if it's not today there will be a solution yet this is an unprecedented crisis the spend make this doesn't really
9:05 am
bode well for the cohesion of the what does it. yes i'm afraid that's probably right yeah i mean i think the reaction from the very beginning was one of you know sort of directly there was need to sort of diety and the very 1st reaction all the european countries were very much about protecting their own i think that soon soon became different i mean everybody realized that if we're going to tackle the pandemic we have to coordinate we have to cooperate however that the regional reaction actually left a very bad taste in particular in countries like you certainly who were there 1st and hardest hit and the disagreements that we see today are not a known of the had always been disagreements but it is true that eventually thing the problems of the day require more collaboration more cohesion and you know touch these disagreements like this to do not bode well with our i don't know counterparts in the world like the u.s. and china who sometimes i don't look at those disagreements to simply take
9:06 am
advantage. is deputy director of the european think tank bruegel thank you so much for joining us. let's catch up now at some other stories making headlines around the world thousands of anti-government protesters have rallied in balad rose they turned out in the capital minsk to support the main challenger to longtime leader alexander lukashenko in next month's presidential vote 2 other opposition candidates have been barred from running. canadian police are investigating how a tour bus careened out of control and flipped over at the end of a sightseeing tour in the rocky mountains on saturday 3 people are dead and at least 2 dozen more were injured in the incident. saudi arabia's king salmon has been taken to the hospital the official press agency says he will undergo medical tests after developing an inflammation of his gallbladder king solomon's health has been the subject of speculation for years his son the crown prince mohammed bin someone is now effectively in charge of the kingdom. syrians have gone to the polls
9:07 am
to elect a new parliament the election comes against a backdrop of civil war and economic crisis and the coronavirus endemic it is the 3rd vote since the conflict began in 2011 but syrians could only cast their ballots in government held regions of the country. syrian president bashar al assad caused his vote in his country's parliamentary elections $167.00 of the parliament's $250.00 seats are already allocated to his ruling baath party critics say the vote will create a parliament that will just be a rubber stamp for the president's decisions so why hold it at all as it wants to say i'm still there all i'm still controlling and this parliament in particular is important for 2 things it will be good going into winter to fight any constitutional suit here and it will be the parliament who goes through just going through the presidential candidates including to $21.00 at the polling booth photos
9:08 am
were more focused on the aftereffects of the civil war and stringent u.s. sanctions imposed in june or sort of all at least we hope the candidates will be deserving of the faith with placing in the money syria has to return to what it was before they are on we hope we can overcome the sanctions so that syria can become better than it was you know with the vasily eyes on my level of happiness this election is a constitutional right and a national jute we all have to participate one of our most important demands from the parliament is to raise salaries and improve the living and economic conditions of citizens in iceland with another lackey. some polling stations were busy but opposition groups are boycotting the election. in commish the province close to kurdish controlled territory turnout was low and some voters claimed they didn't
9:09 am
even know this but this happened. this doesn't represent the whole of syria because there were no announcements to inform people that they would be an election like a week earlier to specify the date and so on people have no idea about the election who to vote for and what the election is full. only government approved candidates were allowed to run for parliament the successful ones will face the monumental challenges once the results are announced. here in germany a new army recruits are being sworn in on the 76th anniversary of a plot to assassinate hitler the tradition remains soldier remind soldiers to be loyal to their country rather than to a particular leader on july 20th 1904 clouston stuff and back led a group of officers who tried to kill hitler with a briefcase bomb hitler survived the attack and stuff back and his coconspirators were rounded up many of them were executed today coffman stuff back is held by the

german born despair as a role model and is honored in ceremonies around the country well let's bring in our political correspondent nina with more on this story hi nina good morning tell us more about how this day is being commemorated. well this year it's going to be commemorates enquires a different way because of course the coronaviruses still a threat and protective measures against the virus are still in place here in germany so this year there will be no audience present on the ground at the prison where many of the people who took part in that attempted assassination were killed by the nazis but there will be some high ranking german officials that and there will also be the grandson of dolphin back himself who will give a speech and of course the german defense minister is going to be that because of the ceremony where the new recruits are going to be sworn in what role do you think this day plays in germany's collective memory today it is still alive and needs collective memory of course there have been books have been exhibitions that has
9:11 am
been the hollywood film starring tom cruise and the german governments over the last few decades have tried actively to keep that memory alive by commemorating that event every year by also choosing that date for that special ceremony when new recruits are sworn in and the idea of course is to ingrain that principle of resistance against any form of fascism right wing extremism within modern day german soldiers having said that of course the memory is also beginning to fade somewhat according to recent polls when some 15 years ago a poll found that half of germans didn't know what that date stand stood for and that that number was even lower with a young generation where one in 4 had no idea what about the way that barack is perceived by germans how is that changed through the decades. it does change tremendously and of course that is very symptomatic and symbolic of how germans and
9:12 am
different german generations have thought of that country's nazi past right after the war in the early fifty's there was a poll that found that some 60 percent almost of germans thought negatively of that attempted assassination and it took younger generations to question their parents and grandparents exhibit a deer in the war and during the nazi era to change that perception of what the nazis had actually committed which crimes that commit committed and how that whole period was seen and. over the decades and then of course these days a fraction of germans only think back and his people as traitors interestingly enough. some members of the alternative for germany party which is of course germany's biggest opposition party cool back and his people traitors and that is proof to some experts that this party is at least home to some people with right wing extremist views our political correspondent you know has
