9:02 pm
summit begins in salzburg but with just six months to go before britain leaves the european union the european council president is warning that the parts of the u.k.'s breaks it proposals well they need some revising so is the e.u. sending mixed signals we'll go to salzburg in just a moment we begin tonight with this report. it's being described as an informal summit. the austrian chancellor's about and could appear to be living up to the relaxed atmosphere as british prime minister to resume a write for dinner but may's main task is to convince the whole of the e.u. that her brakes it package will work ahead of formal negotiations a positive message from courts. i think that if we want to make a deal both sides need to compromise i think that michelle rhee is the twenty
9:03 pm
seventh we want to do everything possible to avoid a heartbreak it's that we stand ready to compromise but we also expect that from the u.k. but top e.u. official donald tusk had a word of warning ahead of the talks. the question of the framework for economic cooperation they case proposals will need to be reworked and further negotiated today there is perhaps more hope about that surely less and less time therefore the left. we see you face talks i would like to finalize them still this. angle america also spoke to waiting press and called for. goodwill and respect. smiles all round on arrival at the south bridge venue however negotiations to avoid
9:04 pm
a hard brags it could see the new change quickly. all right well our travel plans have changed slightly we're going to cross now to london where our correspondent is standing by tonight good evening to you the british prime minister theresa may she has made it clear that breaks it will happen next march and she has called on the european union to compromise as well but what is this possible compromise. well to reason may needs to reassure everybody needs to reassure herself maybe also that something that directive will happen she speaks as much to the e.u. leaders as to people in her own party here at home in london when she said that she is going to make breaks that happen the problem is at the moment the the crucial issue is our land which is ironic because in the whole debate about cracks and
9:05 pm
before the referendum nobody was really talking about either the now it seems to be the focal point of the antagonism between the e.u. and the u.k. and it's about whether there will be food or checks where the border takes ruby the e.u. has different opinions about this than the u.k. and the u.k. needs to work closely with its partners do you keep the union is an island that do not want under any circumstances see anything that resembles a border between northern ireland and the met and the u.k. so this is really the crucial point at the moment where they need to flesh out a compromise. because the european council president donald tusk he has called for another break that summit to be held in there is this really going to have. it seems like this was going to happen been talk about an extra summit for quite some time now and i think the parties agree that
9:06 pm
they really have to do everything possible it's only six months of bricks in from the twenty ninth of september which is next week there's only six months left on where they have to agree on something or else written will crash out so they need to agree on this sort of orderly withdrawal from the e.u. and later on they need the time to talk about what the future relationship will be the future trade if any between the u.k. and he you thought yes it does look likely that this summit actually needs to happen for them to overcome these differences and find this compromise. and begs the question how can they called the summit tonight an informal summit when they're talking about two of you know arguably the most important topics in the european union right now and migration is also on the agenda isn't it well yes it doesn't really look like a. summit i don't know what they would call
9:07 pm
a formal summit because these are really the the most pressing pressing issues that europe and the u.k. that everybody's dealing with at the moment and it requires obviously the heads of state who it would cause all the intelligence and all the diplomacy that the e.u. has to offer us a maybe they want to call it informal in order to make it soon feel less severe but definitely they've got quite a task at hand. it's definitely a heavy duty working dinner to say you the least or correspondent big moss on the story for us tonight in london because thank you. germany's chancellor angela merkel fragile government is under renewed pressure after coalition leaders agreed to dismiss a controversial intelligence chief now medicals authority is being called into question after she allowed her powerful interior minister to promote the spy chief to a more senior position with more pay most german newspapers have reacted
