11:04 am
in the days leading up to the summit seems to have subsided. this put off we will take a lot of willingness to compromise from all in order to agree on something that is good for europe that will be good for the people of europe with regard to the pandemic that would be a suitable response to the economic difficulties we're experiencing so therefore i expect a very tough negotiation about the. 100. positions like their seats are still far apart as close to brussels now and speak to date of your correspondent marina strauss we know this is a crucial moment for the e.u. as a whole now there are reports this morning of a new proposals being table today what more can you tell us or back out what we know so far is that the leaders of germany or france so i'm going to america emmanuel back rob but also of the netherlands of spain and italy arrived early here
11:05 am
at the european summit building before a summit even started and they're talking with the commission president and with the president of the european council and what we can say for sure is that these are the key players at this e.u. summit but the thing is that when they arrived they remain tight lipped they didn't say anything about new proposals but would be hearing from you diplomats is that there might be a new proposal on the table that might shift the grants and loans to the potions but we don't have any clear details yet right so there have been sticking points could this signal possibly good news. well there are still those basic divisions so we have the countries from the cells like is really in spain that have been worst hit by the by the coronavirus crisis and that have been facing economical difficulties even before the crisis started and they say we need your
11:06 am
solidarity we need grants supported by germany and france who are taking the lead they're the 2 most powerful countries in the e.u. and on the other hand there are the so-called frugal countries including the netherlands and austria for example or other wealthy countries and they want to hand out money they say yes ok where we are pro solidarity but we want to have that money as loans it has to be paid back and we also want to attach reforms to the money how likely is it then do you think that these leaders from various countries on opposing sides of the table will be able to reach an agreement at this summit what is interesting is that the bulgarian prime minister bars off was a 1st year leader arriving here in brussels this morning saying actually something and he said we're close to a compromise so he's quite optimistic there because all of that you leaders of most

france's greatest architectural treasures is. its go to france now and bring in d.w. correspondent lisa lewis who's standing by monitoring the situation for us in paris lisa how bad is this place. well it looks quite bad the area is still cordoned off and as you said lots of firefighters were there were sent there at this morning however they are now saying that they have come tying the fire they will stay all day there to make sure no new fires break out it looks like the big organ is completely destroyed and at the beginning they were thinking that might have caused the fire and that organ might actually fall down and collapse and cause more damage so the firefighters are not trying to bring out all valuables statues and and works that are inside the cathedral to make sure they're safe so you mentioned the organ may have been a cause it is there any indication of other possible causes of this place
11:11 am
well absolutely as i said 1st of all they thought it was a fire that just broke up because the organ is an electrical load and organ and made out of wood and that might have been a short circuit but now it's clear that there are 3 spots where the fire started more or less at the same time so there isn't any gauge investigation that has been opened for arson everybody is looking into who actually might have caused that fire well it certainly sounds as though something positive that they might have got this far under control but for many this fire will begin bringing back memories of the shocking fire in not turned on last year. absolutely every day is the ink ing of not to damn the firefighters today said it's not really comparable to that fire also because there was another fire at the north cathedral in 1972 and after that they fortified the roof with concrete now when you look at the not
