EU Agrees To Relief Package In Grants, Loans To Bail Out Pandemic-Battered Economies
"The European Union is hoping and out of the box approach will bring some economic stability to the region during the pandemic leaders agreed to a two point one trillion dollar package. What makes this different is for the first time it's offering hundreds of billions of dollars in common debt for more on this game changing agreement. We're bringing in our Brussels bureau chief Dan Michaels Dan. Thanks for being here. My pleasure Dan in our reporting we have called this. Relief package unprecedented. This is a big shift. Perhaps in the way that the EU in the past has really shown it's fiscal power. Indeed this is a dramatic shift for the EU because you members until very recently have avoided giving the central authorities in Brussels the power to issue debt or raise taxes but the economic crisis brought on by the coronavirus has been so dramatic that this was the measure that they have decided on to stop the worst impact of the the recession that is hitting Europe particularly in the most Hard hit southern countries like Italy. Spain and Greece. Let's talk about Italy. Spain and Greece in particular. We spend a lot of time looking at the hardship among those three countries in this case the EU is saying the needs there are greater and were showing priority to the region. What sends out most is that the EU is willing to grant to those countries many of these the same countries that struggled a decade ago in the euro crisis but at that time Germans and other northern European countries only wanted to give them low interest. Loans Italy this time as a people remember was the first European country to be hit by corona virus. Northern Italy was devastated by the Italian. Konami was really hit hard. Spain was also hit very hard by the coronavirus Nelson for Greece because our economies are so dependent on tourism and summer travel and since the global economy has shut down it really has been damaging to those countries and so the economic after-effects even as Europe has reopened have been quite painful. And that's what these these measures agreed to this. European summit aimed to address. Let's talk about the to power players. Brokering this deal French. President Emmanuel Macron and Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel Merckel in particular has had this reputation of being very fiscally conservative yet. She's going out of her comfort zone. German Chancellor Angela Merkel's shift here is one of the most dramatic elements of what's happened over recent days for more than a decade. She has opposed anything like grants to other countries She couldn't imagine giving her attacks. There is money to Italians or Greeks Spaniards with no strings attached. No interest payments. Nothing like that. But a combination of factors over recent months changed our view. One is a French. President Emmanuel macron lobbied her. Very hard on this. She saw how dire the situation was. When when CORONA VIRUS HIT EUROPE IN MARCH BORDERS WERE CLOSED? Supply chains shutdown. The economy can pretty close to grinding to a halt and there was a strong feeling that the EU itself could be endangered. She also. She's not running for reelection next year. She said she won't so that gives you a little bit more freedom. So she has over. Recent weeks made if not one hundred eighty degree. Turn quite a dramatic metamorphosis.
Coronavirus: Third day of wrangling over huge EU recovery plan
"Seems to be a good deal of lip, curling, and or person beneath the mosques at a you talks on post. Pandemic Recovery Fund after four days of discussions agreement on the proposed seven hundred fifty billion euro fund appears away off. Some assessments of the general tone of the negotiations have even vote the dreaded, full and frank exchange of views, which in the diplomatic arena is the equivalent of at least one protagonist being flung. Through a window into a horse. Trough I'm joined with more on this point Naomi O'Leary Europe correspondent at the Irish Times. Niamey we'll we'll discuss the detail presently, but broadly. Who's disagreeing with whom about what? The main blockage is that there's a group of wealthy northern state led by the Netherlands that want the overall package. The thunder discussion to because because. They at home have domestic electorate that think the costs too much. And The Netherlands is heading for national election next year in March, and I think it's important for Prime Minister Ruta to be able to show to his electorate that he put up a fight in Brussels though. Is this just a really serving resurfacing rather? What's fairly familiar dynamic within the U you this idea that there is a a frugal nor Sunday profligate south. There's a lot of stereotypes at play. There changes though Britain is part of the discussion. It wouldn't have gotten so far as it has. If Britain had still been in the EU win vetoed dozen stage. I'm what's being forced to happen. Is that the states like the Netherlands and Austria kind of being forced to come with their use in a more direct way, they're not able to hide behind the opposition of Britain anymore as they have in the past, and you have alliances of smaller states rather than big blocking ones. Is it about the amount in total, or is it more about how that amount will be dispersed specifically whether it would be a grant or a loan which would need to be paid back at some future point? Yeah, it's both so there's a few things on the table. There's the common e you budget seven years. The Party Gotten Ryan to discussing then there's the recovery fund. Which is this one saw? A response to the economic damage of the pandemic that same to stimulate you con- economies. It's the new thing that would be funded by joint borrowing by the EU Commission that then be distributed to member states, according to need on some of the the the of that money would be in the form Graham that does need to be paid back by the national capitals, and that's controversial at to the frugal, because they're quite wary of incurring greater liabilities, also giving money with strict conditions. This lot of belief that this could you know? Why should any national governments being sensitized to run sensible budget if they think that they can just get money with consequences? So. They're pushing hard for a reduction. Particularly in the amount of grams. Then there are other questions. ID. Decide who gets and also. What kind of would you have? The money is spent.

He and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, proposed that 2/3 of it should be in the form of grants to help stricken nations such as Italy and Spain.

As Gavin Lee explains, You have what's called the frugal for the likes off the Dutch, The Austrians to Swedish, the Danish An add on top of that you have the budget, which is basically how you gets itself through for the next seven years, and what that means you have. An increased amount of money that each country will have to put into the coffers take away the UK from the equation. That means the money that the UK is no longer putting in.

EU court cancels US data-sharing pact over snooping concerns
"A big agreement covering the transfer of European Union citizens data to the United States struck down by a European court privacy watchdogs were celebrating this morning. We're joined live on the CBS Bring Central News Line by Vincent Man in court. Reporter at Politico Europe who focuses on a tech and data protection and he joins us live from Brussels. Vincent Thanks. Can you sketch out for us? What this ruling will mean in the short term and potentially in the long term? Hi. Thanks for having me on. I mean, firstly, it is really hard, Tio every state the impact of this ruling. It's the second time that they used top call has struck down a data transfer agreement between You in the U. S. And this is an agreement used by thousands of companies to shuttle data from Europe to the U. S. And includes companies like Facebook Like Google, You know, the big Silicon Valley Giants. So it's really you know, back to the drawing board for negotiators on both sides of the Atlantic on a time where you know, tensions are really already running quite high between Brussels and Washington. Um So the second thing to know really, is that a zealous this agreement being stuck down another legal instrument used by many companies and many Silicon Valley companies. Transfer data out of Europe has bean upheld by the court, but There is now a lot of pressure on days protection watchdogs in Europe to strike down those transfers to places where surveillance regime regime deemed too intrusive for European standards, so that would include the USO show a lot of a lot of trade. A lot of data transfers have bean dumped into legal limbo by today's ruling. So potentially, this could require American companies that want to do business in Europe, with data to physically put data centers and keep those bits of data from moving back into the U. S. Yes. So that one. I mean the moment we need to let the dust settle on this ruling, But in the coming days, it will become a lot clearer what the next stages are in this process. Early indications from both sides from Washington from you officials is that they want to come to some kind of compromise to keep the flowing across the Atlantic. Just because You know, it's the lifeblood off the digital economy and very important for both sides. In the short term, it will create a lot of legal headaches for these companies. I believe that somewhere in this whole privacy shield presses, there was an ombudsman's rolls set up in other words watchdog who was supposed to keep an eye on whether the transfer of data was in fact creating privacy issues that wasn't strong enough, apparently for the court. No suits, So the outcome from this court is that we've had we've had to re negotiations of this agreement. The first agreement safe Harbor was struck down now we have privacy shield, which has struck down On. Really The conclusion from this Is that the tinkering that went on after the first annulment? Just more than enough? You know, the increased safeguards weren't enough to be The implementation of often ombudsman wasn't enough. It's this I think for a deal, Teo Teo get off the table at this point will require some riel soul searching on the part of US legislators and and, you know, an overhaul, perhaps of the surveillance surveillance regime. We thank you for the time this morning. That is the latest on this ruling out of Europe today by by the European goes
Serbia-Kosovo talks 'back on track
"Now Serbia has refused to recognize Kosovo's statehood since Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in two thousand and eight, nearly a decade after a very bloody war dialogue between Belgrade and Prishtina began in two thousand eleven, producing some thirty agreements most of them, though a not observed, but after talks broke down a couple of years ago, the parties are communicating again with both the EU and the US weighing in well for more I'm joined by James, Kara Lindsay who's visiting professor at the NFC and author of the politics of recognition and engagement, e you, member-state relations with Kosovo James Let's begin with the US involvement. Where do we stand with this? Well. There was a lot of excitement that the united. States was getting involved in this process a couple of years ago. There was a sense Washington really wants it's gets are. Big International Agreement. This was going to be one of trump's moments of glory. That was going to get reelected. And so there was a lot of activity that was going on. By the United States role, the separate from the e U process switch continuing as you've noted since two thousand eleven. But recently it's basically collapsed in this collapse for number of reasons one because they would charges brought against the presidents of Kosovo. For War Crimes but also I think that we just up against the clock in the United States Rick. Grenell the US ambassador to Germany, who was handling this? It looks like he's going to be very involved in trump's reelection campaign, and as we know it less than four months to go before the US election. I, think the latest sellings way hand over to Europe is saying look I've. Got To be dealing with now, so the ball is very very certainly back in the European court now and there was a video summit on Friday chaired by the the the Cherry double-act Merckel macron. What what transpired? The the problem as Well. There's a whole range of problems. As again as you noted as being a range of agreements have been put in place over the past, a number of years most which haven't really been observed, but there's also been deep divisions within the European Union about what they want. Now there's been a number of proposals being coming forward a nice been suggestions that the President Sukasto vote and Serbia. Actually at one point very close to a deal, but controversially that would include some so the territorial swap and we know that Germany in actual fact Britain as well a very very opposed to this. The. Americans on the other hand seem to be open to the idea although they seem to be a rowing buckle now now. I'm so the probably essentially have is that we need a big picture secondments here and the Europeans have been pressing so small normalization agreements, which is all very well and good boots. As I'm saying I worked Cypress pathetic years, and these small agreements, a justice difficult to get into place, and even more typical in many ways to implement than actually spending time focusing on a big picture final deal, and so I think this is the real question about half now. Is it going to be back to try to get these piecemeal agreements that don't really work or all week in the focus on the big picture? Final settlements. Will really put this issue behind both Kosovo. and Serbia and of course that question becomes very urgent, because it looks as if the leaders of Serbia in Kosovo will meet face to face in Brussels later this week. Yes I'm I mean to be honest with you? I don't think anyone's really expecting that. We can see any big breakthroughs now. and I again. I'm I'm very very skeptical that you're really even knows what it wants. the IT could be a return to these sort of. These small bitsy talks which you don't get me wrong. These are important things that needs to be doubts which will make long foot for people in costumes survey much better. But like a Lotta people a my view is the you sold. If they were the big picture deal, anyway and so what you're doing is many ways wasting time on energy block treasurer on all these trying to get these small agreements, which in the end don't really get implemented because that fundamental big picture agreement so. I I think the big problem here is that it's it's. Europe's coming at the wrong way. I mean Europe officials as saying that resolution is the only way that Serbia and Kosovo seek to become members of the EU. Do you think that that's a big enough incentive? Well. I mean I. Get sent certainly in Kosovo there is. A growing realization something needs to be done so often. Votes Clayton dependency. The was that we go from. There was a we've got. The Americans behind US rebuilt the British the French recalled Germans. They're going to go out and tell. The world recognized Kosovo and in the first few years. That seems to be what was happening and we got to a point where about one, hundred ten or hundred thirteen of the one hundred ninety three members of the UN recognized. Kosovo But Russia and China refuse to recognize it, so that prevents full you and membership, but what we've seen in the past couple of years is Serbia's lobbied countries to withdraw that recognition of Kosovo is now recognized about ninety seven countries so I think in Prishtina this realization if we want to join the UN if we want to be a normal, fully accepted country on the world stage, we've got to reach a final deal with Belgrade. What is it that we? We can offer Belgrade. The Belgrade might be willing to accept. The trump is what it sink. President Sanctuary was willing to offer Belgrade's. The German said No. We're not willing to allow it to go that far because if you stop changing borders between Serbian, Kosovo. Even if this is consensual, you'll not problems north Macedonia and Bosnia so we we have a fundamental problem here of how we're going to deal with something that frankly speaking could be dealt with sally easily. If, there was sort of coincidence abuse amongst the Americans, the Europeans, subs and the Kosovo Albanians James. Thank you very much? Indeed, that's James Collins.

"That they would require which means that they won't back which will give fresh impetus to the people who then think they can peel off remain ish conservative members of parliament to support some version of the Cooper amendment because no deal looms larger and larger as a possible threat. I don't see that. We've yet got three into two if we have got three into two I think Theresa May wins. If we're still three I think she really big problem. What's the third mean is it? Extending Article V day four referendum is extending article fifty four a general election is in order for the EU to agree to extension vertical. Fifty other than for tidying up some legislation is caught to for some clear purposes going to from the us point of view, yield something on general election. I just don't see what yields from the us point of view of the just even you end up with a minority. Labour government is still leave you with the issue of how do you go share it with a new government that on its own admission doesn't want the Boxton, sir. General election could do anything. But I think the political logic points through general election of genuinely parliament kennel get three down into two since me almost all you can do then is have a new parliament agree. It's hard. See why the EU would be thrilled at the thought of delaying a few months in order to face a very uncertain future. Of course, it could result in a majority conserved that at that point, the you can just say no to that. And then that becomes no deal that refocuses. People's Mearns of passing jewel, we go round on this. I find it hard to believe in the same way that went to resume as the fixed component night. But when to resume comes along in two thousand seventeen and says, I want an election. No one's going to desktop a kennel see the EU refusing an extension if the British government says it's to allow us to have a general election that would actually seems to me look terrible from kind of democratic legitimacy point of view. So I think she could call bluff on this. Of course. It would be a strange bluff Kalinka, she could also doing that gas of Turkey ever been really greatly concerned about democratic legitimacy in this home. Concerned about the look democratic legitimacy. Okay. We're not going to get around in circles on this talking politics is brought to you in partnership with the London review of books this week the week. That's just gone looked like a week. Unusually for recent months where the conservative party was coming together and the labor party around. This issue is looking more fractured is that the real picture is it really the case when it comes to the crunch the Tory party's traditional virtue of will hang together. We'll hang separately will hold the food. I think that that that was very mixed. I think that ten, you know, the relative conservative unity lesson go overboard on how far it went. Because you still did have I think around twenty conservative peas who voted for the Cooper amendment did come from some concerted effort within the conservative party to try to narrow the scope of the disagreement. So if you just take the e oh OG the gone from having thousand one problems from the withdrawal agreement to having problems at all about the back. Stop much really about one part of the back stock which is the outskirts of any kind of exit mechanism any form whatsoever from the backseat. So that's a a reduction of the differences between those conservative party won't the present withdraw agreement passan those who have been bitterly opposed on it and trying to unite round. Let's try and deal with this exit is whether that confined Brussels is a whole other matter. But at least within the conservative party, they've got some more common ground than they were. Was leaving the twenty very to around twenty. I think voted for the Cooper amendment aside. I think what you saw we saw this way in the labor party was many more different physicians coming out. And I think that you've got the people who basically supported the government you got gobin in the front bench who supported formerly enthusiastically the Cooper amendment with three line whip..

"There are a whole series of choices that people face there. But come back in two weeks time, you didn't get the movement from the Europeans Tory unity starts to fracture. Isn't there a chance that the an equivalent of the Cooper amendment and extension to article fifty does get through? I'm not saying that there's no chance, but I think that what happened. This. We does reveal that there is a real difficulty in mobilizing sufficient labor votes to try to bring about an extension of auto fifty something that would have to be a second for end of one four and other searches the other amendment the pass was the symbolic rejection of no deal. But you think that the symbolism is easy actually doing it for too many labor members hard? He didn't think that in two weeks time the symbolic vote becomes an actual. I think the the way the I in tip it what happened this week is that parliament clearly there was a majority in parliament, probably a large majority. Then there was on the spokesman amendment. Absolutely do not want in any circumstances. So ever no deal. I think what this week made clear is that the majority in parliament do not either really want to delay Brexit, unless it was for a very specified purpose of getting legis. Flation done on. I suspect that one of the reasons why that might be the case if you look at the polling think it was sky. The did is that something like sixty percent of the electric regard any argument about extending article fifty as really an argument for stopping Broza, and you can see why they might think that. So if we leave aside the tactical problem, and it's a massive Todd go problem about the February fourteenth day in relation to the the European Union. We have seen I think events move that pushed the choice between a version of this withdrawal agreement on a version of this polit-political declaration versus no deal, which is what to resume had been trying to move things towards as say impediment from her point of view, or the difficulty from her point of view is is the next time that these votes have got to come up is ready to soon to have got anything a tool, even I think symbolic changes to the two things issue. After that feels to me like I agree that were this to move to that choice. She would have a pretty good chance of finally getting a parliamentary majority for her deal. But that for the reasons you say, they won't be enough movement on the European side. So it hasn't become a two-way choice. There will still be three options on the table. So there will be significant numbers of conservative MP's who will not back her deal because she's not gold. The concessions will movement tool even enough creative and beauty.

"Eleventh hour and the fifty ninth minute like it wouldn't work, and then a compromise was found, but to me this looks different because essentially the key relationship here is between the government and the European Union the Irish position that's being defended. And as we get closer to the wire, the other Member States really going to abandon Arlen isn't the thing that the opinion does is it gets closer to the wire that it thinks his priorities to hold together. Which is why maybe it backs time in the face of some aspects of the Greek crisis. When to hold together as he gets near the why it's not going to cut loose. Well, I think that first of your points guys bat to the Greek crisis south in the ways in which has been interpreted, which I think generally being the wrong ways in which is being interpreted kuzak isn't a moment achieve. E you unity holding except in a very very perverse way. Because what was going on in those negotiations over the third bailout was that the finance ministers of the eurozone states were trying to expel Greece from the eurozone and the midnight hour deal. So to speak was the Greek government. I'm the great prominence to Cps swallowing so much humiliation to stop that attempted expulsion certain that rather them to expel Greece would have actually fractured European unity. I think that Mirka was in an extremely difficult position in it wasn't clear that she was fishing committed to the position that had finance minister schobul had been pushing. So she gave him sufficient green light to go ahead with the attempted expulsion. And then she gave the tiniest little sweet if you like to see press to try to say, oh, we could just accept this and swallow everything else a you can stay in. So I think is not entirely clear. Even in retrospect, how committed Merckel was to pushing Greece out of the us only could read it that she never quite wanted to do that. But I think what it means is the point of view making comparison with with Brexit is that the issue about your opinion. Teachers really hold now, if you then turned to where we are now with Frank's it from the point of view of other EU governments. I'm the Irish question. Clearly, there was something more state for them than just supporting the government. And that is the credibility of the European Union. And the go shooting position that it took in the fact that it's remained as committed for as long as it has to the Irish position. All that would lead one thing that that was gonna stick on that the twenty six gun abandon island over the Buxton on the other hand, if you're sitting in Berlin, and you looking at the latest economic data out of Germany, and you thinking a k on top of these difficulties will get at in a no do Brexit. And then we're going to have to persuade voters. This was all worth it. I think trying to persuade Jim invoices. Indeed, anybody else's voices that oh this is necessary in order to protect island about the border with the United Kingdom is not the easiest showy say political Selo at the very least it must can raise some kind of doubt. How about when the political calculus now is how close to the word we have to get for that to kick in. Is it gonna kick in before February? Now, I think this is the the tot cool massive technical problem. Theresa May's go is it fourteenth Feb. Always way too soon. Because if the EU is going to move even in ways it get dressed up as being symbolic, but perhaps on the have more substance to them. They're not gonna do it by the fourteenth February. So that then moves the questions calculus in the house of Commons because says one group of people who may hold together that the e twenty seven there's another group of people who may not hold together at the conservative party. He said his nap tight in the Commons. Fool not doing Brexit. Is there an appetite though, still to delay? Because the fact that the Cooper amendment went down and the Brady amendment went through happened on a particular day under particular circumstances..

"Renou a few days on from the really interesting series of votes in the house of Commons as various amendments fell one by one until the Brady amendment passed the next day on Wednesday. I traveled to Ireland in a day there and back to Dublin on the way there. This was the morning after the night before I read the not not the British paper that we have to call them the English papers that were celebrating Theresa's triumph and on the way back. I read the Irish newspapers from the same day that were bemoaning Therese's betrayal, and the times one of that Columbus thought made the perfectly reasonable point that the reason we need backstop is precisely because the British government has decided that they can renegotiate the backstop because the whole point of it is to provide security that is people's confidence in the future that the border will not but come a heart border and. Put in those terms. It does make really hard for Theresa May to persuade Brussels, which means at some level persuading the our sh- government. This question can be right reopened because there is a point to the backstop from the point of view. They cannot be comforted that British politics will not really mess them around unless they have that security, but it just it. Partly sounds paradoxical kind of we need the backstop because Brigham saying we don't need the backstop. That is also true that the other side of the paradox is that if the backstory, which is at the moment. The primary impediment tea, but in leaving the European Union withdrawal agreement and the alternative is for leaving with no do then the nature of the rules of the European Union. Ensure the has to be something that might be described as a hard border to the island of island site. The worst case scenario is actually at the moment being hastened along or at least potentially being hastened alone by the backstop that supposed to prevent the worst case scenario Utah's up. Not say is the dilemma here, basically, let's try and see this from the Irish point of view got to pretty terrible options. But no deal gives you hard border. Plus very immediate economic kale's and withdrawal agreement with some modification of the backstop arrangement risks are Buddha. But it does at least for stolley image economic hails. Because I she put in those times nine persuaded the other. Way. There is a good case reading this. I think that this gets to the heart of the political calculation that this Irish government made in picturing divisional, stop which was for Northern Ireland. It wasn't going to include the United Kingdom made. And that was that. Nobody government could contemplate in any shape or form leaving without the deal. So other the backstop went through as part of the withdrawal agreement or a box went through with the withdrawal agreement or Brexit wouldn't happen all some different government negotiated some different dealer a customs union deal, whatever. Well, I think that was really possibility because the customs union is about the future relationship in the future relationship was never going to be negotiated. Join the period, we negotiating the withdrawal thirties, this will no exit on accent might not know do. Yeah. And so I think that the Irish calculation has always been that no deal be so intolerable for Britain that they'll be no possibility. Of that happening. So there is an actually a risk of getting into the scenario. So I think from if you sitting in in Dublin at the moment, you might be more nervous than you had been simply because there is some possibility. Now, I think its is not very high for -bility the prisons and leave without a deal. But at the same time, I think what we conceive in this week's developments the votes on the amendments is that there is no stomach in parliament for trying to stop Brexit all this insufficient stomach component for trying to stop Brexit. So in that sense, the risk of no deal has actually gone on this week. So let's come onto the parliamentary rhythm to get a second. Just one more question about all little said the wider European Union negotiating strategy over the next perilous few days and weeks. There is an people started to say it kind of motif. That's emerging particularly among the books tears. This is how the EU always negoti. She's takes everything to the wire. Don't believe them when they say this can't be reopened look at what happened with the Greeks brought up to the.
