army pioneer days looking crazy. and her future. depends on where they. should close up on are she. talking about this is r t live from moscow here's a recap of all our top stories putting the wheels in motion possible ushers in a new era of energy security for western europe as a lot more and more stream pipeline to get us pumping russian gas straight to germany. in the supply route rules out energy rallies with rounds of countries which were previously left european consumers of russian gas out in the cold. russia issues another stern warning against israeli military action against iran as president needs him again and says it could spell catastrophe and to middle east

meanwhile the u.n. atomic watchdog is about to release a report on terrorism nuclear activities. recall additional scramble to save the country as they inch towards deciding on a new prices leader r.t. heads to the streets of athens to find out what greeks themselves thing now fears grow that italy is next in financial firing life or death surprisingly amid record barley since. it was north korean passengers europe for the first time we sit down with a man who was head of the ambitious project the very person who used to leave germany at the beginning of the millennium as its chancellor gerhard schroeder you know he tells us why it's so important for all sides involved that interview was. gerhard schroeder was charles love germany from nineteen ninety eight to two thousand and five he's now chairman of the board at nordstrom's russia's new gas pipeline under the baltic sea and europe is to further why should the e.u.
9:32 am
increase its handed on gazprom is good nick i know. we're not talking about a dependence on russia we're talking about cooperation between russia or on 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 problem and one from that interview minister to an old friend pipelines have already been laid what top of the third one will be added and what will be its capacity if you had to get it we currently have at least two pipelines with a total capacity of fifty five billion cubic meters the question of whether a third or even fourth pipeline will be really should be answered by european stock holders of as you know we have gazprom on the long side and holland's got sunni france's g.d.s. who is germany's on and p.s.
9:33 am
if we just along the other investors decide to build a third and fourth pipeline privately financed mind you we're not talking about state financing and then it could be done i do not know whether they will make such a decision as it was not part of my work of. all russian energy companies not just from to be allowed to export gas to europe what are the implications of that for gas problem and europe. regulator reprovision 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 with 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 is good for mark good job. what do you think of the recent new raids on gazprom and its partners in europe if you think about the or
9:34 am
p.r. guys i think europeans need gas gas has many uses with the 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 the britain recently switched from export to imperial europe needs a gas supply to maintain a stable mix of energy sources and its climatic conditions require it needs norway to gasoline and also russia's gas and therefore i think opening the market up to russian companies would be a wise move of with a shorter name for f. and do some e.u. officials oppose russia worth of it does get us is for though both north man i guess it's so we have to admit that way and i hope we will get over it it's understandable that 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 ideological differences you x. . it was for the could russia switch supply east to china if brussels keeps up its
9:35 am
hostility although it's unknown as it puts your involvements of russians 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 the russian government is evidently pro european but europe cannot keep pushing russia away it hurts russians pride and 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 one and at the same time run a u.s. session to turkey that would be a sound strategy and into the future of the rest is yesterday's debate unless and or is part of an investor if russia does decide to go east could that mean against a shortfall for europe diverse voters and you know that will not happen russia was an exceptionally reliable supplier during soviet times so no one has to worry about
9:36 am
that chanting i will say again that europe market is incredibly important for russia to keep its budget balance among other things therefore we're not talking about dependence here but a codependency. we've heard plans to lay an electricity route alongside the nord stream project could germany and europe in your opinion be interested in importing electricity from russia if i sneak funds i can i've not heard about such plans your 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 progress in shipping liquefied natural gas. makes europe less dependent on pipelines can that affect this project but let's go even if that's a first i don't think it would have a negative effect on the project as europe's liquefied gas market is quite limited there's no way to sally's in germany poland has a developing market it's in no way
9:37 am
a danger for us and that's not the reason i'm criticizing the indication that there are alternative sources low spot prices on gas the g.p.s. spot deals can be of no more gain the long term supply agreements in the short run but they do not offer stability for thinking for twitter because 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. would be in your mid mind lloyd and sort of consider this me and my team were the people who would rigidly 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 fought our agreement should be overturned and they've since gone the other way and started supporting what i have negotiated on. as 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 for the sake of energy security that's the reason we need to buy gas
9:38 am
from norway from other countries but primarily from russia and the reason we need to build gas power stations and more. with this e.u. debt crisis mr sarkozy says no euro no europe surely europe with a void without the euro so and that's i know i know for you this is a quote from a successor in office like figure of course europe is 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 if erotically things turn out differently which i find very improbable we will still have a united europe it is. you were childs a lot when greece cooked its books to join the euro should you have stopped athens for joining the single currency probably needed. on the is it worth your while i do not think that was our situation of the european commission its employees that had to conduct inspections they had let us know that we could take the responsibility
9:39 am
for greece's e.u. recession on ourselves but it was a purely preparatory mission conducted by the european commission the national government we had made the decision to take greece in we cannot claim without having foam proof that the information we got then was diplomatically not entirely correct very. 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 are actually happening. and thus either the commission was wrong or the handling of greece has been wrong since it ended which which is a matter kensi in if the 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 government would have to be nonpartizan uninfluenced by debates provoked by right wing party that i hope the package of aid agreements
9:40 am
that european leaders have agreed on it implement tech and if that's the case then i think we can start taking care of stabilizing the markets with a great deal of help from greece of course there is one point i would like to make the country should not be broken down not only does greece need budget discipline which is of course true but what greece needs most are investments in this it would be good to see wealthy greek citizens who are currently investing abroad pay taxes in their own country instead of looking for investment opportunities for on was a good and i thought god willing is there a red line beyond which germany they we're not going to bail out southern europe anymore or because germany have a historic that europe has. been 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 then you'd eventually have to corrected him and he's interested both politically and economically in a functioning europe economic interest is easily explained that forty percent of
9:41 am
our export goes to the european union and beyond that if those countries ahead by a crisis then so is germany secondly or the lesson we learned in the past and our prospects for the future dictate that germany is not strong enough geopolitically to play a significant role in a game. so the us is one superpower and an asian leader of a right in this case china is the other in 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 to us that not just because of the past but for the sake of our citizens future for a lot of the small question many germans many people many finns are angry at having to pay. are they wrong that's the thought of seeing i don't understand that but i have to explain it very consistently to the current generation of political leaders within our own interest to maintain stability in other countries as germany is a nation that relies hugely on next year if markets around us crumble it harms us
9:42 am
we have to explain it to our people the new generation of the prospects for long lasting peace lies in europe were it clear 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 and what would be the implication i think it doesn't make it go i do not think we should feel bad about other nations getting stronger the day 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 better stay more innovative when we fulfil our agenda of twenty tam 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 provide for change i wonder if the rest of the e.u.
9:43 am
states having understood this a decade later will manage to take the action needed to maintain prosperity right 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 or you. we started taking care of our problems in time and the rest will regret it and be forced to take on a harder mission this goes for everyone not just the sound of all persons but fifty and nordin. chairman of the board for the north stream gas pipeline thank you for speaking with author. nation and free to critique priests for charges priests arrangements priests priests to priests.
