2:01 am
coalition partners fell out over my brief policy the big move for reportedly unhappy with the deal chancellor merkel agreed to with the european union. american evanston thanks for joining us let's go straight to d.w. is correspondent michelle the krishna who's in munich where the c.s.u. leadership has been meeting and joining me in the studio is usually a political correspondent you know has a you know a do stand by i want to go directly to michelle so we just heard that horse a hole for the interior minister made a very brief statement a short time ago what did he have to say. well basically he wouldn't talk about his offer of resignation that he clearly made
2:02 am
behind closed doors this evening to see you so you don't see in the german parliament what he did say though is that the c.s.u. would launch another attempt of finding common ground with anglo machall c.d.u. party this of course being an attempt to save that union of these two parties that this decades old old political marriage and he also stressed that this was basically a courtesy on his side because otherwise he said everything would have been over well everything could mean anything from the his role as interior minister to the c.s.u. leaving its union with angela merkel c.d.u. party to potentially bringing down the government of course and doing her chancery so all sides know that this is a very critical political moment and yet again it's being dragged out by at

occasions and also when it came to different topics by gratian policy of course being the biggest one but we all know that this escalation now is focusing on a point of sixty three point. plan and this one point where they disagree. is now using. me as a potential way of bringing america so it's not about those details it's not about those topics it is a small. personal rile between these two characters and even if he does stay this means very very rough times indeed for as chancellor with the interior minister who would basically chords other projects potentially as well. in addition to the reports of his mission to fill with us yet there she is
