agrees to pay the money she says it posed to the e.u. also coming up with some. sort of. a white nationalist leaders hounded off the stage at a university in florida the incident raises questions about the standoff in the u.s. between hate speech and free speech and also about where the president trump is creating a climate allowing bigotry to thrive. and he's been dubbed the czech version of don and from this billionaire businessman is likely to win the country's general election this weekend he's against the euro and also against refugees so walking would a victory mean for the czech republic. i don't welcome i'm a touchy. german chancellor angela merkel says she hopes breakthrough talks can

move on at the next you summit in december but that is depend on britain the e.u. says the u.k. must make more concessions on divorce issues before the two sides can start talking about their future relationship. theresa may did her best to keep up appearances but to many here in brussels her performance was little more than a staging of the impersonal close. even as negotiations have all but stalled the british prime minister continued to play coy how much is one willing to pay and when the answers to those questions remain a mystery the full and final settlement will come as part of the final agreement that we're getting in relation to the future partnership and i think that's absolutely right. the two sides continue to lock horns over how much britain should pay to settle the divorce from the e.u. friday's morning meeting did little to sweeten the souring relationship but prime

minister may didn't come completely empty handed she offered e.u. leaders an olive branch pledging to protect citizens from britain even after it leaves the union the u.k. and the e.u. share the same objective of safeguarding the rights of e.u. nationals living in the u.k. and u.k. nationals living in the e.u. e.u. citizens have made a huge contribution to our country and let me be clear that whatever happens we want them and their families to stay. no one had expected a breakthrough but even then friday's summit is unlikely to sleep either side satisfied. now carthon government is discovering that you summit in joins me now from brussels to resume a came to brussels with high expectations do you think she got enough there to take back home. without doubt this was a face saving summit for tourism a of course she knew when she came to brussels

3:05 pm
hesitant let's take a listen to what chancellor merkel had to say in a final comment at the summit. you know instantly hope that by december we would have moved on long enough to allow face to to begin his cellphone but that depends on the extent to which brittany makes progress on phase one. in this regard here the financial settlement is the most prominent and here it is on the theme there financier. so good what do you make of chancellor merkel's comments there. on the summit recently has not made new concessions but she has also not ruled out that that may be the case that she has not dismissed the statement that she has put to leaders that her foreign speech where she said she will stand by the commitments the u.k. has made that she will pay for the things where the u.k. has committed that that was the final final word if you want so it will be interesting to see how much room there is to actually move these talks forward the
3:06 pm
key thing for your leaders now is what should happen next is that the positive spirit that she brought along to this summit the constructive spirit she is something that needs to be reflected in the actual breck's that talks between the chief negotiators now this team and the catalonia crisis were not officially on the agenda but finally the spanish prime minister mariano high did come out and talk about the crisis what do you say the spanish prime minister said is a crazy situation in his press conference he also said that the separatists are violating a key e.u. legislation and he was referring there particularly to the rule of law and how to reason may has also emphasized that rule of law in fact a number of your leaders echoed mariano rajoy here in saying that spain needs to stick to the rules and regulations something that makes is
