resulting moschonas are top stories tonight moscow russia is in a new era of energy security for western europe as a lot not the wall street pipeline begins pumping russian gas straight to feel. pressure issues not a stern warning against the west an attack on iran as president dmitry medvedev says it could spell catastrophe for the middle east meanwhile the u.n. a toy watchdogs approach released a report on two rounds nuclear activity. the italian prime minister has won a crucial budget vote but it's lost his majority support columns experts fear the country's on its way to becoming the next victim of europe's financial crisis. but
one of his top stories is no stream gas enters europe and for the first time we sit down next to the man who's headed the ambitious project the very person who used to lead to germany at the beginning of the lenny in its chancellor gerhard schroeder tells us why it's so important for all sides involved right now. 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 europe is further why should the e.u. increase its dependence on gas probably as good or. guide was done so we're not talking about a dependence on russia we're talking about cooperation between russia or on the one side and the european union on the other in the energy sector by 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 for us and for more problem and ordered from that interview minister to nordstrom pipelines have already been laid what part of the third one will be added and what will be its capacity we had to get it we currently have at least two pipelines with the total capacity of fifty five billion cubic meters the question of whether a third or even fourth pipeline will be doing that should be answered by european stock holders as you know we have gazprom on the one side and holland because sunni france's g.d. have sewers germany's eon and b a s if windowsill on the other if investors decide to build a third and fourth pipeline privately financed mind you we're not talking about state financing and any 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 to be allowed to export gas to europe what are the
implications of that for gas problem and europe. regulator evolution is not the issue which you 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 them are pictures. what do you think of the recent new raids on gazprom and its partners in europe think about the or guts i think europeans need gas gas has many uses or 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 that britain recently switched from export to imperial europe needs a gas supply to maintain a stable mix of energy sources and it's climatic conditions require it needs norway
to gaslight but also russia's gas and therefore i think opening the market up to motion companies would be a wise move with a shorter name so often do some e.u. officials oppose russia whatever it. is for though that's more from a i guess it's so we have to admit that way but 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 exist yet again. it was for the could russia switch supply east to china if brussels keeps up its hostility was that it's a known as it were your involvements 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 the russian government is evidently pro european but europe 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 them and europe's geopolitical position will only improve if it manages to enter a tight partnership with russia one and at the same time grant a session to turkey that would be a sound strategy aimed into the future the rest is yesterday's debate in the palace and is good but of guess that if russia does decide to go east could that mean a gas shortfall for europe that there's a bit of a snake no that will not happen russia was an exceptionally reliable supplier during soviet times so no one has to worry about that chanting i will say again that europe clark it is incredibly important for russia to keep its budget balance among other things. therefore we're not talking about the condoms here but a codependency to go for that 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 the vice need funds or even i've
not heard about such plans you want to 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 and 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 there's no way to sally's in germany 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 their g.p.s. spot deals can be of no more gain for long term supply agreements in the short run but they do not offer stability for think if a trigger were a 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 given these energy mix
rather have been damaged mined lloyd and so consider this me and my team with 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 that they've since gone the other way and started supporting what i 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 from norway from other countries but primarily from russia and the reason we need to build gas power stations and more so. with this e.u. debt crisis mr sarkozy says no euro no europe surely europe will survive without the euro so that there's i know i know for you this is a quote from a successor in office like security of course europe's going to have problems if
the euro has problems but there's one thing you can be sure of any the euro is going to survive as a common currency that even if erotically things turn out differently which i find very improbable we will still have a united europe it invited or you were child slow when greece cooked its books to join the euro should you have stopped athens for joining the single currency problem need. i do not think that was our situation of the european commission its employees that had to conduct the inspections they had let us know that we could take the responsibility for greece's e.u. accession 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 cannot 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 painted which which is it. to get the upgrade of it's pointless to talk about how things were in the past. we're talking about the future though 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 that european leaders have agreed on it implement acted on that if that's the case then i think we can start taking care of stabilizing our markets are a great deal of help from greece of course but there is one point i would like to make a 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 that this 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 doubling as the red line beyond which carol so they we're not going to bail out southern europe anymore or the germany have a historic pit that europe has from it's 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 correct it in germany is interested both politically and economically in a functioning europe that the economic interest is easily explained forty percent of our export goes to the european union and beyond that 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 a game where the u.s. is one superpower and an asian leader of the like in this case china is the other
new european state is only a united europe can take on a role like that and that's why germany is interested in a united us not just because of the past but for the sake of our citizens future of the conference a lot of being a small question many germans many people many finns are angry that having to pay. of a role that's enough for it seems i do. i understand that but i have to explain it very consistently to the current generation of political leaders that it's within our own interest to maintain stability in other countries as germany is a nation that relies hugely on actual year if markets around us crumble it harms us we have to explain it to our people and you can aeration of the prospects for 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 happening federally and what would be the implication you think
it doesn't if it did 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 more opportunity to export our products as they develop but that's only the case if we stay better 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 provide for change 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 i on the other hand we have an understanding that an aging society with a decreasing number of people who are deployed has problems of that sort or that we started taking care of our problems in time the rest will regrettably be forced to take on a harder mission this goes for everyone not just the sound of all persons but if
but when you can order. productivity of the board for the north korean gas pipeline thank you for speaking about the. from los angeles to chicago to birmingham twenty trauma centers have closed since two thousand severe problem is not enough inpatient beds not in the third emergency department beds and not enough nurses commandos there to take care of all the people. the only real health care system that we have in the city of los angeles is the los angeles fire department in fact when i started my venture is a firefighter i didn't want to carry them out so i started out wanting just to firefighting it's about eighty two percent of what we do the fire the problem this medical i've had to rescue a couple weeks ago waited for hours for big i've waited sometimes three hours but i
was it's a same francis and we went for four hours and fifty minutes standing against a wall with a patient and we have a federal law that mandates that no one away who seeks care in an emergency room. we have the most expensive health care system in the world and it's probably valued the least. of the.
moscow ushers in a new era of energy security for western europe as the landmark and all the stream pipeline begins pumping russian gas straight to germany and beyond. russia issues another stern warning against the west an attack on a rather as president to me from a bed of says it could spell catastrophe for the middle east meanwhile the un atomic bomb dogs are proud for at least a report from france nuclear activities. the italian prime minister has won a crucial budget vote but has lost his majority support in the parliament as experts fear the country is on the way to becoming the next victim of europe's financial crisis. could go to eight forty six pm here in moscow this catch up with

a two month summer break for the next system allows us to create a uniform schedule where there's always that summer break and since there's a three month break in the winter and a two month break in the summer why not switch them around and bring you since aligned with a european calender. now top european ice hockey nations will begin a four stage continental tournament this weekend euro hockey tour also acting as a preparation stage for russia finland sweden on the czech republic ahead of the annual world championships that car yella cup starting things off in helsinki team russia finished second at the world championships last season that led to a new man at the helm and in a two liability dean off taking over the reins from fictional afic off to secured pocked world gold three years ago the hopes are now that the latino off will be in charge all the way to the sochi olympics in twenty fourteen the fast approaching finish page of the euro tour though his first big test.
pics are a very serious and interesting it for me personally as a coach this words in building i want to develop my roster here in russia using primarily k. job players the upcoming international tournaments including the world cup should reveal their capabilities and then we can store thinking about it because he. promised to give youth a chance at the opening speech in helsinki and indeed his team is loaded with promising talents experience though also looms large at both ends of the rink can i afford alexander right to life one of the most grizzled veterans a former n.h.l. or already has two world championship gold medals in his pockets but it's only for more of his present sure if i call in jelling together this was. a lot of field. or unknown over the town some day you know someone in the. world.
really good. i think. in the team because they don't think they were ready. to play good this year. so it's not surprising at all swimming nowhere five time olympic. gold medalist ian thorpe said he needs to shake off more of the prove disappointing this play at the world cup in beijing these trillion who has set thirteen individual global records not to worry though the spike the london olympics fast approaching. so most of everything you know you can return to the people. i mean a lot for five years and expect to be winning things you know it wasn't my intention and these competition series of competitions for me is kind of the first stepping stone of making me back into this competitive mode you know really learning what it's like to be. ready to rise so you know so far i've been pretty
