ten thirty pm she is tonight here in moscow thanks for being with us this is our t. and our top stories tonight moscow ushers in a new era of energy security for western europe as a landmark north street pipeline begins pumping russian gas straight to germany and beyond. moscow calls as it appropriate the publication of the u.n. atomic watched over report the states iran's been pursuing nuclear weapons it comes as russian president dmitri veteran issues another so the warning against an israeli attack on. italian prime ministers come under increasing pressure to stand down he's won a crucial project focus lost his majority support in the parliament next put the
countries on its way now to becoming the next victim of europe's financial crisis to. come in the one of those top stories as north stream guy senses europe for the first time we sit down next then with the man who's headed up the sound bush's project the very person indeed he used to lead germany at the beginning of the millennium as his chancellor gerhard schroder he says next why the pipeline is so important for all sides involved. gerhard schroder was told so love germany from nineteen ninety eight to two thousand and five he's now chairman of the board at nordstrom russia's new gas pipeline under the baltic sea and europe is to further why should the e.u. increase its dependence on gazprom is good news or. opinion crowded with plants and 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 not 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 former patient problem and were informed that the energy minister to nordstrom pipelines have already been laid what top of the third one will be added or 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 a question of whether a third or even fourth pipeline will be ready to be answered by european stock holders and as you know we have gazprom on the one side and holland's got sunni from says g.d.'s who is germany's iran and the s.f. windowsill only other investors decide to build a third and fourth pipeline privately financed mind you we're not talking about stink financing then it could be done i don't know whether they will make such
a decision as it was not part of my work of. cross was once all russian energy companies not just problem to be allowed to export gas to europe what are the implications of that for gazprom and europe. regulator information is not the issue the e.u. germany and the rest of the e.u. nations need gas to sensibly reform that energy policy and 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 would be how 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 the marketer what do you think of the recent raids on gazprom and its partners in europe and think about your here guys i think europeans need gas if you cast as many use it 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 imperial europe needs a gas supply to maintain a stable mix of energy sources but it's climatic conditions require them to get needs norway's gasoline and also russia's gas and therefore i think opening the market up to goshen companies would be a wise move of with a shorter name so if we do some e.u. officials oppose russia whatever it does get us is fordable with most known 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 or 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 yet again. thank you for the could russia switch supply ethe to china if brussels keeps up its hostility was that it's a known as it puts your hormones 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 of the russian government is evidently pro european a guru 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 harbor ship with russia and at the same time grant us session to turkey that would be a sound strategy aimed into the future of the rest is yesterday's debate alice and it did but haven't guessed that if russia does decide to go east could that mean a gas shortfall for europe and i guess if there's any you know that will not happen russia was an exceptionally reliable supplier during soviet times so no one has to worry about that gently but 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 or codependency vertigo for that 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 would progress in shipping liquefied natural gas. makes europe less dependent on pipelines can that affect this product 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 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 and 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 cannot
of us debility back and forth to go for a playable 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 it would be a big mind light and consider this me and my team but the people who would rigidly negotiated path 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 out 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. with this crisis mr
sarkozy says no euro no europe surely europe worth of oil without the euro so that there's i know i know from a little quote my successor in office for example 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 programmable you would chancellor when greece cooked its books to join the euro should you have stopped athens from joining the single currency. on the. i do not think that was our situation of the european commission it's 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 on the national government 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. 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 with money for under other the commission was wrong or the handling of greece has been wrong since intended which which is a matter keynesian of over a fifth 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 will have to be nonpartizan uninfluenced by debates provoked by right wing party that and i hope the package of aid agreements that european leaders have agreed on is implement techron 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
out of the country should not be broken down not only does greece need a budget discipline which is of course trivial but what greece needs mostly 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 or stroll on with their gold and the thought of going green is there a red line beyond which german thursday we're not going to bail out southern europe anymore or those germany have a historic depth of 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 correctly germany's interested both politically and economically in a functioning europe that economic interest is easily explained forty percent of our exports goes to the european union and beyond with 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 geopolitically to play a significant role in a game. 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 a year ago not just because of the past but from the sake of our citizens future of the conference a lot of being a small question many german people many finns are angry at having to pay. or they roll yes that's for it see 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 interests to maintain stability in other countries as germany is a nation that relies hugely on axl here if markets around us crumble it harms us we have to explain it to our people the new generation of the prospects for long lasting peace lies in europe were you 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 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 there's a decade later i'll 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 deployed has problems of that sort or you. so
we started taking care of our problems in time the rest will aggressively be forced to take on harder mission this goes for everyone not just the sounds of all plus this but if there were didn't. go to chairman of the board for the north stream gas pipeline thank you for speaking with r.t. . a very warm welcome to you this is your news today protesters on the. street they have. a good chance. to get the status of the human experiments get.

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 because it's aligned with the european calender. now top european i saw king asians 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 they are yella cup starting things off in helsinki team russia finished second at the world championships last season that led to a new mom at the helm xina to love bill a dean off taking over the reins from pitches to a pick off who secured. world gold three years ago the hopes are now that the latino fool be in charge all the way to the source chilling takes in twenty fourteen the fast approaching finish the age of the euro tour though his first big test. pics are
