a shortfall in gas which is projected to reach some one hundred million homes by twenty thirty now this is a europe wide project why european leaders are here is because french dutch german companies energy firms have taken stakes in the north stream pipeline that will guarantee supply to homes in those countries for the next fifty years at least the lifetime of this current project there are plans to send this gas in and then alter the existing european network on to countries like the united kingdom as well as a facilities here in russia has always gone to great lengths to fulfill its energy obligations because really it's our highest priority we will continue to supply our european partners with county interruption in the future in order to attract more investment for the project i'm convinced that such involvement will minimize risks a long time energy supply chain nationally would be skinny but now they should also provide cheaper gas for homes in europe with no transit fees to be paid for the
9:03 am
likes of ukraine and belarus with gas going direct for the first time from russia to the e.u. german chancellor angela merkel is optimistic about the future relations between russia and the european union let's have a listen to what she had to say. about that when speaking about energy supply security but also speak about diversification and russia is one of our most important partners is of supply have to be safe and the demand from europe is also guaranteed russian gas and the economic development of our continent and this means that we will be closely linked to each other for decades to come. it is the longest subsidy pipeline the gas pipeline in the world and it took some engineering brilliance just for one example compressor stations which keep the pressure in gas pipelines usually there are several across the route this one just has has one the beginning of the route it's been planned since the nineteen nineties construction did start a few years ago the second line will come on stream next year and we've just spoken to some of the heads of the of the project who say that

9:06 am
that russia has the alternative should be just or europe has no such alternative to europe's geopolitical position we're. just to enter a tight partnership with russia at the same time. or that would be a sound strategy again or into the future for us the rest of us the worst a very gloomy. of the russian president has warned and militarist rhetoric in the middle east and that's how to run it could lead to a catastrophic war in the region we should be vetted statements came during the joint press conference with his german counterpart russia has been voicing strong words against an attack on iran following statements by israel that a strike is more likely that the clumsy atomic watchdog is about to report on iran's nuclear activities and provide evidence that iran has built a testing facility and computer models of warheads iran has dismissed all

9:08 am
