a dignified one new pictures are published of robert mugabe after a meeting with the zimbabwean military so what have they decided about his fate and the peace. so. a five hundred year old masterpiece by leonardo da vinci becomes the most expensive piece of art ever sold at auction so this incredibly now expensive painting. i'm brick off it's good to have you with us we are watching the clock tonight here in germany a decisive political moment could be at hand the political parties involved in talks to form the next coalition government and just a few hours more before
a crucial deadline a deadline to iron out their differences and go into government together failure could mean new elections a chance i'm going to says she's confident that there will be a deal tonight on what is being dubbed the jamaica coalition jamaica because the political parties here in germany. their colors match the jamaicans flag but the german chancellor also admitting there are some serious differences remain. four weeks of negotiations have seen the chances for a so-called jamaica coalition hover at fifty fifty one thing is clear there's still no love lost between the very parties who say they want to govern under chancellor on the america all. that talk on the hill is a day when we have to put ourselves in the shoes of the other side and ask what is important to them. on balance of all you can achieve that kind and if we do we will
also achieve a positive result at the end of these negotiations and when stephen negotiators come and go those who face the microphones are still busy placing blame and stressing their own limits notably when it comes to the right of all refugees to have their families join them in germany. i need to say one thing is clear we will insist on the right of refugees with subsidiary protection to be reunited with their families in germany that's an issue of trust for us here. when i look up but other parties already fear a public backlash if thousands of migrants are allowed to bring their families to germany. because. we can't just sign things here that could fan on extremism in germany. that is why we are available for a fact oriented solution rooted in humanitarian reasoning german foreign policy
appears to have become the latest casualty in the struggle to strike a deal between the four parties. we've taken a step back and now that the foreign deployment of german forces became an issue again all foreign policy issues are back on hold. while the exploratory talks for a government coalition could be extended public patience with unlimited efforts to forge a coalition is running thin. and following the talks for us to know aren't as our correspondents auto parts going to. is an agreement a lot tonight is that widely. well one thing is for sure it does look like it's going to be a very very long night here it's been eight weeks since the german elections and four weeks since these negotiations started and really all the party negotiators want to be done with that they want to either find a compromise or tell tonight this is not going to work that we will fail but either
or they want a decision tonight and they are working towards it we are hearing there are a number of contentious issues such as climate by gratian and finance those are the most controversial issues and we are hearing that there is some movement towards each other in terms of climate and some movement or actually no movement in terms of migration for example on the contentious issue of family reunions so will there be a breakthrough tonight i think from what we're hearing we can say that it is more likely that there will be a compromise and that they will continue with coalition talks and that germany will at some point in the near future see a jamaica coalition and the larger what happens if these talks fail and what will it mean for the german chancellor. it would really be a disaster the party negotiators a lot of them have been saying that if those talks fail it would be a real catastrophe on the one hand it would be it would mean that snap elections
would be called that means germany what hold new elections and that could lead to a push for example from voters for extremist parties or parties more on the left or on the right because they're disappointed with the negotiations of the four parties that are negotiating at the moment on the other hand for mankell that would mean a real failure because she is a strategic good negotiator usually see is the leader of the strongest party in these coalition talks and as such if these talks fail it would be her failure and that might mean that she will not pose as a candidate for chancellor again in a new election and that she wouldn't have a fourth term as the chancellor of germany you know a lot at stake for on the americans tonight as well our correspondent show up on the story force she ought to thank you well the german engineering joins him and says it is going to go nearly seven thousand jobs worldwide in the major
