5:31 am
europe for the first time we sit down with the man who headed the ambitious project germany's former chancellor at the beginning of the millennium and get her out schroeder tells us why the route is so important for all science involved. go through the world charles love germany from one thousand nine hundred to two thousand and five he's now chairman of the board at north stream russia's new gas pipeline under the baltic sea europe mr further why should the e.u. increase its dependence on gazprom. opinion. we're not talking about russia's dependence we're talking about cooperation between russia on the one side and the european union on the other in the energy sector new stream is viewed as a priority project both by russia and the oil because it's been part of europe's energy networks since two thousand and six not recognized by the european parliament and the e.u. council of energy. which was and from all appears from problem meant. that the
5:32 am
energy minister to nordstrom pipelines have already been laid what thoughts of the third one will be added and what will be its capacity we haven't yet started by it we currently have at least two pipelines with a total capacity of fifty five billion cubic me article big me the question of whether a third or even like climate living or that should be answered by european stock holders of as you know we have gazprom in the order and holland's got sunni g.d.s. suez in germany and the s.f. winter selling only you know their investors decide to build a third and fourth pipeline through a privately finals mine we're not talking about stinks like that then it could be done i do not know whether they will make such a decision as it was not part of my will and mine 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 gas problem and europe. regulator in
5:33 am
a position where it's not the issue. and the rest of the nations need gas to sensibly reform that and. russia on the other hand has to sell gas to keep its budget and so there's a. codependency a culture is a good thing now to be happy to see european companies invest into russia and european markets open up there wasn't a company that it's a good free market economy does is good for the market truck what do you think of the recent raids on gazprom and its partners in europe think about just your p.r. gasper i think europeans need gas to feel as has many years is a dog with a political uncertainty in north africa also good to have a stable partner that you can rely on for russia is one of this you know better than anyone else for at least the bit written recently switched from export to your old partner europe needs a gas supply to maintain a stable mix of energy sources but it's climatic conditions but i want them to get any norway's going outside but also russia's give us therefore i think opening the
5:34 am
market up different companies would be a wiser of. the name to do some e.u. officials oppose russia whatever it does get us is for it or just most money i guess it is so we have to admit that what i hope we will get over it it's understandable and says the european union needs russia geopolitically but the reverse is also true it's not a question but with the time has come to start cooperating and stop looking back at an ideological difference here to get that misrata could russia switch supply east to china if brussels keeps up its hostility is unknown as it were to your informants 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 of the russian government is evidently pro european but europe cannot keep pushing russia away it hurts russians pride about me and we have to keep in mind that while russia has the alternative of shipping to asia europe has no such
5:35 am
alternative and europe's geopolitical position look only improved if it manages to enter a tiny hard to ship with russia on under the same time grant only recession to turkey that that would be a sound strategy aimed into the future the rest. yesterday's debate or less and it did better for the guest if russia does decide to go east could that mean a gas shortfall for europe now doesn't it us need to know what's going on happen russia was an exceptionally reliable supplier during soviet times so no one has to worry about that juncture i will say again that europe hallmark it is incredibly important for russia to keep it logic balance among other things therefore we're not talking about the candidate but a code and it was a good 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 because europe liquefied gas market is quite limited on the move because there's no way to sell it in germany or poland has
5:36 am
a developing market important is that it's in no way a danger for us and that's not the reason i'm criticizing is the indication that there are alternative sources of the low spot prices on gas their support deals can be of no more gain than long term supply agreements in a short run they do not offer stability for us to go for plague of course 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. have been in your mid mind lloyd and consider this me and my team are the people who originally negotiated that deal with our energy suppliers that 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 and of course 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 that we need gas
5:37 am
as an interim energy source for the sake of energy security that's the reason we need to buy gas from new york from other cultures but primarily from russia for the reason we need to build a gas power station. and morse. with this debt crisis mr sarkozy says no hero no europe surely europe will survive without the euro so on that. and a former english is a quote my successor in office like to of course europe is going to have problems if the euro has problems but there's one thing you can be sure of and if the euro is going to survive as a common currency then even it theoretically things turn out differently which i find very appropriate we will still have a united europe it is vital in or prague you would chancellor when greece cooked its books to join the euro should you have stopped athens from joining the single currency. on those it towards your own via i do not think that was our situation of the european commission its employees that had to conduct the inspections they had
5:38 am
letters know that we could take the responsibility for greece's e.u. a session on ourselves and it was a purely preparatory mission conducted by the european commission and the national governments if we had made the decision to take greece in we could not claim without having the firm proof that the information we got then was on diplomatically speaking not entirely correct raghav people might 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. for unless that either the commission was wrong or the handling of greece has been wrong since it ended which which is it ends in. 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 as the new greek government would have to be nonpartizan uninfluenced by debate provoked
5:39 am
by right with a number that's on for me i hope the package of aid agreements that european leaders have agreed on is implement package if that's the case then i think we can start taking care of stabilizing biomarkers. sleep with a great deal of help from greece here or 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 trigger should what greece needs most are investments that invest it would be good to see wealthy greek citizens who are currently vesting abroad with pay taxes in their own country instead of looking for investment opportunity or so on was a good us thought 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 that europe has from it's been there gave it a bad 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
5:40 am
a functioning europe that have economic interest is easily explained where you get forty percent of our export goes to the european union and beyond if it's your eyes 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 where the u.s. is one superpower and an asian leader. in this case china is the other new european state isn't the 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 with you but for the sake of our citizens future of that conference a lot of being to small question many germans many people many in are angry at having to pay. of a role 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 interests to maintain stability in other countries as germany is
5:41 am
a nation that relies hugely on x. here if markets around us crumble it harms us we have to explain to our people the new generation the prospects for long lasting. peace allies in europe good lord 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 implication if think it doesn't make it but i do not think we should feel bad about other nations getting stronger be they russians chinese brazilians south africans or indians or 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 eight and up and sort out our social policies and germany is the only country that understood back in two thousand and three that for an aging country to maintain prosperity that it must
5:42 am
provide for chang i think it i wonder if the rest of the e.u. states having understood this a decade later i'll manage to take the action needed to maintain prosperity eyes on the other hand we have an understanding that an aging society with a decreasing number of people who are about lloyd has problems of that so it will be a matter that we started taking care of our problems in time that the rest will regret it and be forced to take on a harder mission this goes for everyone not just the sound of all plus this but if they've been ignored in the whole schroeder 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 in-patient beds not enough earth emergency department beds and not enough nurses to members there to take care of
5:43 am
all the people who are here 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 for. i didn't want to start out. firefighting it's about eighty two percent of what we do with this medical. four hours four i've waited sometimes three hours but i wouldn't say it's a francis in what for four hours and fifty minutes standing against a wall and we have a federal law that mandates that turn 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.

5:49 am
played today. well it was pretty good match and think he did actually well to hang with me more chances to maybe even extend a lead but from the start i was able to take control and then really give it away so it was not. the second semifinal saw the two thousand and eight paris champion. close out his place in this final after itself three set went over american john eisener beyond seeded eisener won the first set six three but the sun god charged by the home crowd managed to get back into contention and warned the following sets seven six seven six having saved three match points in the final set so the local players will now face that are in the final thing counts are being their a sixth meeting this year with the swiss player coming on all three times the french than whites. but stay in france where russian weightlifters one individual gold and silver medals in the one hundred five kilogram category at the world
5:50 am
championships which are being held at the french disneyland in paris this year's european champion. lifted a combined total of four hundred thirty kilograms in the snatch and clean and jerk for top place on the podium while his teammates at the beijing olympic silver medalist beat the clock off was just two kilos behind with four hundred twenty eight the third place finisher from ukraine was a full eighteen kilograms behind so the convincing once it finished for the russians in the hundred five k. division could establish domination at the london olympics. and some track and field news now where the international association of athletics federations has named the twenty eleven athletes of the year at the annual awards ceremony in monte carlo jamaica's same bolt the honor on the men's side for the third time as he was recognized for retaining that hundred meter individual world title along with helping his country with the four by one hundred meters relay at

where russia were held so one one draw by greece in a friendly in athens on friday night dick advocaat smen continue their preparations for next summer's european championships and the head coach spoke with r.t. richard and portly after the match in greece. i think it's a really good test for russia today i mean you probably learn a lot from say as much the very comfortable very reasonable you know a lot of said if we take the we pointed out of the team and we can play the part in the game what we did and what we showed to go is a very physical team. for the future i mean how impressed we i mean had a few debits and some in. the press we could see that they were a part of the team and as always supporting they were not alone there are no. good results so that where i was pleased with have seen the first game is always difficult but i mean i am also i mean you've said you've got free games the head of the european championships in two thousand and twelve has
5:53 am
a team progressing you did look very good tonight as well we're progressing already from the from the beginning it is a real team and there's a reason i have also some problems to change because the team looks very good football wise and creating chances in the first three four four four chances we had three goals of voters to be improving yes but you have have whiteness as a coach do you have a sample scored because i mean very few coaches around europe can call on such a few group of players would you have done the last few years does your basic is base your squad yeah definitely. the majority of the players knows what i want a see the big in the games that simple doesn't that's important and we can only do better i think still. high i mean obviously the likes of a shot in public. can get figureheads if your team i mean how disappointing is it for you as a head coach have been all getting a lot of game time in the moment that only played today ninety minutes and as good
