1:06 am
violations on the palestinian side and the solution of course is to bring those cases directly to the international criminal court. of which palestine is now a full member. israel of course has refused to join the court and has said it would not take serials any reportseriously fromthe united nations. >> on to other stories now. european union has given greece until sunday. european unioneuropean central bank says it will give greece until sunday to come up with a solution. jacky rowland has the story. >> european leaders gave their verdict. greece had not told them what they wanted to hear. >> translator: we had a long and intensive discussion and in summary can i tell that you after the deliberations we had tonight, the preconditions of

union will attend that meeting on sunday. the leaders say their priority is to protect around strengthen the euro. none say in public that they want greece to leave but if it happens they say they're ready. >> we have a derek disit grexit scenario prepared in detail. that's the scenario i most prefer. a scenario how to deal with the problem now keeping greece as a member of the euro area. i'm strongly against grexit but i can't prevent it if the greek government is not doing what we are expecting the greek government to do. >> reporter: a grave situation but the greek prime minister emerged smiling. >> translator: the grexit will continue the effort, the vast majority want an agreement which will give us the prospect of finally exiting the crisis.
