gerhard schroeder was chancellor of germany from one nine hundred 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 mr further why should the e.u. increase its dependence on gazprom. i know. 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. 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 for more patient part i meant ordered from the energy minister to nordstrom pipelines have already been laid what top of the third one will be added and what will be its capacity we haven't yet that 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 laid should be answered by european stock holders of as you know we have gazprom on the one side and hollins got sunni france's g.d.s. suez and germany's on and b.s.f. windowsill on the other if investors decide to build a third and fourth pipeline privately financed mind you we're not talking about think financing india 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 just gazprom to be allowed to export gas to europe what are the implications of that for gazprom and europe as. regulator e permission is not the issue that the e.u. germany and the rest of the e.u. nations need gas to sensibly reform their energy policy to get russia on the other hand has to sell gas to keep its budget in order so there's
a. co-dependency which is a good thing now to 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 marc rich or what do you think of the recent interview raids on gazprom and its partners in europe think about the or 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 that britain recently switched from export to implode europe needs a gas supply to maintain a stable mix of energy sources that it's climatic conditions require and it needs norway to gaslight but also russia's gas and therefore i think opening the market up to russian companies would be a wise move of. the name to do some e.u. officials oppose russia whatever it does get us is for though that's most mon i
guess it so we have to admit that way but i hope we will get over it or 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. that misread the could russia switch supply east to china if brussels keeps up its hostility was there and is unknown as it were to your involvements of wishes 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 or 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 tiny hard to ship with russia one and at the same time grant a session to turkey that would be a sound strategy aimed into the future of the rest. yesterday's debate alice and it
did but a fun guess that if russia does decide to go east could that mean the gas shortfall for europe wide as if it is new no that will not happen russia was an exceptionally reliable supplier during soviet times so no one has to worry about that drinking 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 vertigo that we've heard plans to lay an electricity route alongside the nord stream project could germany and european in your opinion be interested in importing electricity from russia if i sniffed 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 that progress in shipping liquefied natural gas. 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 sell it in germany or poland has a developing market important is that it's in no way a danger for us that's not the reason i'm criticizing it is the indication that there are alternative sources the low spot prices on gas their support deals can be of no more gain than long term supply agreements in the short run but they do not offer stability for think of for trigger 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 germany's energy mix. 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 thought our agreement should be.
overturned of what 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 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 huge debt crisis mr sarkozy says no euro no europe surely you're worth of oil without the euro so that there's i know i know for more this is a 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 if erotically things turn out differently which i find very improbable youth we will still have a united europe it is vital and or prague you would chancellor when greece cooked
its books to join the euro should you have stopped athens from joining the single currency government does. your environment 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 for greece's e.u. a session on ourselves it was a purely preparatory mission conducted by the european commission the national governments we had made the decision to take greece in we could 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. unless either the commission was wrong or the handling of greece has been wrong since it ended
which which it. matter kensi in vegas if the upgrade 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 government would have to be nonpartizan uninfluenced by debate provoked by right wing party that 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 of course that there is one point i would like to make of 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 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 opportunity or so on was a good i don't want to bring is there a red line beyond which german thursday we're not going to bail out southern europe anymore or does germany have
a historic bet to europe has from it's been they're getting a bad debt 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's 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 dictate that germany is not strong enough geo politically to play a significant role in a 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 in the us that is not just because of the past but for the sake of our citizens future that will come from a lot of being to small question many germans many dutch people many finns are
angry. at having to pay. of a roll that's enough for it see and i can 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's a nation that relies hugely on actual year if markets around us crumble it harms us we have to explain it to our people the new generation that the prospect 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's happening potentially and what would be the implications if think of it doesn't have a dollar 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 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 town 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 high on the other hand we have an understanding that an aging society with a decreasing number of people who are a ploy that has problems of that sort of your. so we started taking care of our problems in time the rest will aggressively be forced to take the mission this goes for everyone not just the sound will post this but if to but he wouldn't go soeda chairman of the board for the north stream gas pipeline thank you for speaking with l.t. . from
los angeles to chicago to birmingham twenty trauma centers have closed since two thousand severe problem is not enough inpatient beds not enough urgency department beds and not enough nurses to man those that take care of all the people who are 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 be a mask i started out i want to just do fire fighting it's about eighty two percent of what we do the far the problem is medical i've had a rescue couple weeks ago waited for hours for a bit i've waited sometimes three hours but i wouldn't say it's a francis in lynnwood for four hours and fifty minutes standing against a wall with a patient and we have a federal law that mandates that you can't turn no one away who seeks care in the emergency room.
