correspondents all in the talks in a moment but first this report. night has fallen in berlin but for the negotiators here there's still a lot of work to do before they can sign this document a sixty one page draft agreement for exploratory talks they must resolve points of contention like migration climate and transport policy then that's killing if we succeed and in this time of great polarization we can accomplish something what is really important for our country namely that you know all of us from very very very different positions and never the less able to work together for the people of this country. a major political statement and an appeal to the four parties to overcome their differences compromise is the word of the day or it's talk. today is a day when we can impression people with courage and energy and you solutions.

that should also motivate all four parties today to come to the table in the spirit of problem solving and not in the spirit of saving face. is. easier said than done for for weeks now the negotiators have been searching for a consensus well each party sticks to its guns this means that we have to fight for the things that are important climate change a humanitarian assign a policy and an orderly right to asylum the greens top priority is reuniting refugee families who hold limited protected status the same policy is an absolute no go for the c.s.u. . so we had this limited protected status as a special status in germany and now we feel it's simply unsustainable we still have high numbers of refugees coming in so continuing this program is not possible negotiators have until early morning to reach the necessary compromises. well let's go right to our correspondent all over salat he is following the talks for us hi

a very long night this is what we hear here over and over again and it does seem like we will have to wait until the early morning to find out what the compromises will be looking like and if there will be any at all if there isn't a compromise all over what happens next and what does that mean from the america. there are basically two options if the talks fail number one is a minority government led by the strongest party and that would certainly be on the american c.d.u. party but this is a very unlikely and unpopular scenario first of all because it will mean the new government would be doomed unstable and for historic reasons i'm going to america will try to avoid this scenario by all means another option would be snap elections and this is a little bit less unlikely as well as unpopular because snap elections according to latest polls would mean that the far right party would come out even stronger and.
