more interesting minutes hope you join us then. also back to washing our t. a live from moscow here's a recap of all our top stories putting the wheels in motion moscow ushers in a new era of energy security for western europe as a landmark of north korean hard life begins pumping russian gas straight to germany and beyond a new supply route rules out energy rouse from the transit countries which had previously left european consumers russian gas out of the problem. russia issues
7:31 am
and other stern warning against israeli military action against iran as president dmitri medvedev says it could scud catastrophe for the middle east meanwhile the un atomic wash dog is about to release a report on steroids in nuclear activities. the greek doesn't walk a politician scramble to save the country as they inch towards a deal over a new crisis leader r.t. heads to the streets of athens to find out what greeks themselves think. as north korean gas enters europe for the first i was with the man who was head of the ambitious project the very person who used to lead germany at the beginning of the millennium as its chancellor gerhard schroeder tells us why it's so important for all sides involved. gerhard schroder was charles of germany from nineteen ninety eight to two thousand and five he's now chairman of the board at north stream russia's new gas pipeline
7:32 am
under the baltic sea so europe mr further why should the e.u. increase its dependence on gazprom is good news i know. guy that was. we're not talking about a dependence on russia we're talking about cooperation between russia on the one side and the european union on the other in the energy sector is north stream is viewed as a priority project by both russia and the e.u. because it's been part of europe's energy networks since two thousand and six is recognized by the european parliament and the e.u. council of energy ministers and from your peers from part i meant. that the interview minister to nordstrom popeye's have already been laid what was the third one will be added and what will be its capacity we haven't yet it we currently have at least two pipelines with a total capacity of fifty five billion cubic metres the question of whether a third or even fourth pipeline will be laid that should be answered by european stock holders of as you know we have gazprom on the one side and hollande
7:33 am
a sunni france's g.d.s. who is in germany's eat on and b a s if winterson on the other if investors decide to build a third and fourth pipeline privately financed mind you we're not talking about state financing then it could be done i do not know whether they will make such a decision as it was not part of my work line of. brussels wants all russian energy companies not a problem to be allowed to export gas to europe what are the implications of that for gas and europe. regulator retaliation is not the issue which the e.u. germany and the rest of the e.u. nations need gas to sensibly reform their energy policy like russia on the other hand has to sell gas to keep its budget in order so there's a codependency which is a good thing i would be happy to see european companies invest into russia and european markets open up to russian companies it's a good free market economy that is good for our production. what do you think of
7:34 am
the recent raids on gazprom and its partners in europe think about the over p.r. guys i think europeans need gas gas as many uses with a political uncertainty in north africa it's good to have a stable partner that you can rely on and russia is one of the you know better than anyone else for instance that britain recently switched from export to india old europe needs a gas supply to maintain a stable mix of energy sources and it's climatic conditions require them and it needs norway to gaslight it also russia's gas and therefore i think opening the market up to national companies would be a wise move or to short the name to do some e.u. officials opposed whatever it does is for deal with most money i guess it's so we have to admit that way but i hope we will get over it it's understandable the european union needs russia geopolitically but the reverse is also true there's no question about it the time has come to start cooperating and stop looking back at
7:35 am
ideological differences yet again. that was for the could russia switch supply ethe to china if brussels keeps up its hostility was that it is a known as it worth your little minds of which is in a situation where it could ship gas to china and all of asia and europe i hope russia never has to make a choice of the russian government is evidently pro european the gear it cannot keep pushing russia away it hurts russians pride we have to keep in mind that while russia has the alternative of shipping to asia europe has no such alternative with europe's geopolitical position will only improve if it manages to enter a tightly partnership with russia when under the same time grand sessions of turkey that would be a sound strategy aimed into the future of the rest of yesterday's debate alice and is part of from a guess that if russia does decide to go east could that mean a shortfall for europe and i guess if this new no doubt will not happen russia was
7:36 am
an exceptionally reliable supplier during soviet times so no one has to worry about that changing what i will say again that you're a canard it is incredibly important for russia to keep its budget balance among other things therefore we're not talking about that kind of here but a codependency. we've heard plans to lay an electricity route alongside the north stream project could germany and europe in your opinion be interested in importing them from russia and vice any funds i can i've not heard about such plans have long since been rumors about it but so far the talk has been detached from reality i doubt the plans will ever be realized but ultimately it's up to the pipelines owners not the chairman of the stockholders committee that progress in shipping liquefied natural gas l.n.g. makes europe less dependent on pipelines can that affect this project and. i don't think it would have a negative effect on the project as europe's liquefied gas market is quite limited
7:37 am
there's no way to sell it in germany or poland has a developing market and it's in no way a danger for us and that's not the reason i'm criticizing the indication that there are alternative sources the low spot prices on gas they g.d.s. small deals can be of no more gain the long term supply agreements in the short run but they do not offer stability very first think of for play a global problem in the wake of the fukushima disaster germany is closing all its nuclear power plants do you support that and how will it change here when he's energy mix rather have been damaged mind consider this me and my team with the people who originally negotiated that deal with our energy suppliers we had agreed to make a sensible exit out of nuclear strategy that was followed by a short period when the federal government for our agreement should be overturned and they've since gone the other way and started supporting what i had negotiated on. this does not mean bridge technologies like nuclear energy cannot be used until energy efficiency is sufficiently developed we need gas as an interim energy source
7:38 am
for the sake of energy security that's the reason we need to buy gas from norway from other countries but primarily from russia and the reason we need to build gas power stations and more so. with this a huge debt crisis mr sarkozy says no euro no europe surely europe worth of oil without the euro so that there's a lot of former literature quote my successor in office next to yours of course europe's going to have problems if the euro has problems but there's one thing you can be sure of the euro is going to survive as a common currency even it theoretically things turn out differently which i find very improbable we will still have a united europe it is i don't know or probably you would child slow when greece cooked its books to join the euro should you have stopped athens for joining with her company. on the. i do not think that was our situation the european
7:39 am
commission its employees that had to conduct an inspections they had let us know that we could take the responsibility for greece's e.u. a session on ourselves but it was a purely preparatory mission conducted by the european commission not the national governments we had made the decision to take greece in we did not claim without having firm proof that the information we got then was diplomatically speaking not entirely correct very much keep in mind that the european parliament voted in favor of greece's membership almost unanimously including the conservatives who are now trying to distance themselves from that decision sometimes in politics you don't want to believe things that he wants condoned or actually happening there about. whether the commission was wrong or the handling of greece has been wrong since they tended which will give the matter keynesian the view the upper lot of it's pointless to talk about how things were in the past. we're talking about the future i hope we manage to keep greece in the eurozone for that to happen the new greek
7:40 am
government would have to be nonpartizan uninfluenced by debate provoked by right wing party guests but i hope the package of aid agreements that european leaders have agreed on is implement eckerd and if that's the case then i think we can start taking care of stabilizing the market with a great deal of help from greece and. there is one point i would like to make a recovery should not be broken down and not only does greece need a budget discipline which is of course triggered but what greece needs most are investments that this will be good to see wealthy greek citizens who are currently investing are good pay taxes in their own country instead of looking for investment opportunities or strong was a good unavoidably is the red line beyond which germans play we're not going to bail out southern europe anymore or because they already have a historic bit that europe has from it and they're getting about i'm not against discussing a red line the problem is that if you start to talk about a red line you need eventually have to correct it in germany is interested both
7:41 am
politically and economically in a functioning europe but the economic interest is easily explained forty percent of our export goes to the european union and beyond it if those countries are hit by a crisis then so is germany secondly or the lesson we learned in the past and our prospects for the future dictates that germany is not strong enough geopolitically to play a significant role in any game where the u.s. is one superpower and an asian leader. in this case china is the other new european state is only a united europe can take on a role like that if that's why germany is interested in a night of us not just because of the past but for the sake of our citizens future of the conference a lot of you to small question many germans thought we were many friends are angry at having to pay. have a role that's enough for it see i do. i understand that but i have to explain it very consistently to the current generation of political leaders clearly it's
7:42 am
within our own interest to maintain stability in other countries as germany is a nation that relies hugely on export here if markets around us crumble it harms us we have to explain it to our people a new generation the prospect for a long lasting peace lies in europe. when you serve the german chancellor there was no question of receiving financial aid from china or russia directly or indirectly through the i.m.f. do you regret that's happening potentially and what will be the implications i think a month or doesn't if i do not think we should feel bad about other nations getting stronger be they russians chinese brazilians south africans or indians it should not concern us because these countries offer us a more opportunity to export our products as they develop but that's only the case if we stay debtor stay more innovative when we fulfill our agenda of twenty chan and sort out our social policies germany is the only country that understood back in two thousand and three that for an aging country to maintain prosperity it must
7:43 am
provide for change i think about i wonder if the rest of the e.u. states having understood this a decade later will manage to take the action needed to maintain prosperity life on the other hand we have an understanding that an aging society with a decreasing number of people who are employed has problems of that sort we started taking care of our problems in time or the rest will regret it be forced to take on a harder mission as goes for everyone not just the sound of all persons but price of admission or him gerhard schroder chairman of the board for the nordstrom gas pipeline thank you for speaking with us. the close up team has been to the region where technological breakthroughs say

stories on our t.v. of putting the wheels in motion last washers in an era of energy security for western europe as a landmark north stream i'd want to guess from the russian gas straits in germany. and the supply route rules out energy rouse and transit countries which have previously left european consumers of russian gas out of coal. russia issues another strong warning against israeli military action against iran as president of the female advent of says it could spell catastrophe for the meanwhile the un atomic naushad is about to release a report on terror nuclear activities. great politicians scramble
