on r.t. . ghostrider 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. 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 and the stream is viewed as a priority project both by russia and the 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 with its debts which wasn't from our peers from parliamentary or and from that 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 i don't
know that we currently have at least two pipelines with the total capacity of fifty five billion cubic me article beat me the question of whether a third or even like climate political would have to be answered by european stock holders of as you know we have gazprom in the one florida and holland's got sunni g.d.s. suez in germany and the s.f. winterson on the other investors decide to build a third and fourth pipeline through a privately finals might we're not talking about states 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 gazprom and europe as. regulator reprovision one is 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 culture is a good thing for jay how 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 marc rich what do you think of the recent new raids on gazprom and its partners in europe think about just the all 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 the 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 where you want them to get any norway's going outside but also russia's gas and therefore i think opening the market up different companies would be a wiser more of. the name to do some e.u. officials oppose russia whatever it does get us is for though that's most money i
guess it is so we have to admit that or 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 idea or degree difference yet again that misrata could russia switch supply east to china if brussels keeps up its hostility and then as it towards your evil minds 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 is the use 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 alternative and europe's geopolitical position look only improved if it manages to enter a tiny hard to ship with russia one under the same time grant only a recession to turkey and that would be a sound strategy aimed into the future the rest. yesterday's debate alice and.
guess that if russia does decide to go east could that mean the gas shortfall for europe now does vet a snake know whether or not happy russia was an exceptionally reliable supplier during soviet times so no one has to worry about that trantor i will say again that europe hallmark it is incredibly important for russia to keep it logic balance in the other things therefore we're not talking about the kind of a code and it's 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 as europe's liquefied gas market is quite limited to move there's nowhere to sell it in germany or poland has 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 the short run but they do not offer stability for think of fair play 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 damaged mind consider this me and my team or the people who would rigidly 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 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 and the reason we need to build a gas power station. morse. with this debt crisis mr sarkozy says
no euro no europe surely europe will survive without the euro so that there's i know i know former english as a quote my successor in office like to of course europe's going to have problems if the euro has problems but there's one thing you can be sure of at the end of the euro is going to survive as a common currency there even it theoretically things turn out differently which i find very approachable you think we will still have a united europe it is vital in all pugging 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 invalid 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 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 and loss. of the commission was wrong or the handling of greece has been wrong since it ended which which is a matter kensi 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 euro zone so that i was the new greek government would have to be nonpartisan uninfluenced by debate provoked by right wing and under that's on for me i hope the package of aid agreements that european leaders have agreed on it implement that if that's the case then i think we can start taking care of stabilizing my lucky. with
a great deal of help from greece here for 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 trivial should what greece needs our investments to 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 debt to europe has from putting its been there getting about 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 correctly germany's interested both politically and economically in a functioning europe that have economic interest is easily explainable you get forty percent of our export goes to the european union and beyond with 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 geopolitical 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 it 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 with you but for the sake of our citizens future of that conference a lot of being to small question many germans many dutch people many finns 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 clearly it's within our own interests to maintain stability in other countries as germany is a nation that relies hugely on actually here if markets around us crumble it harms us we have to explain to our the new generation the prospects for long lasting.
peace allies in europe are good during the secular and 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 and stay more innovative when we fulfill our agenda of twenty taro and sort out our social policies in germany is the only country that understood back in two thousand and three that for an aging country to maintain prosperity that it must provide for change i think and i i wonder if the rest of the e.u. states if i'm having understood this a decade later i will 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 deployed has problems of that so it will be a matter that we started taking care of our problems in time it was the rest will regret it and be forced to take on a harder mission this goes for everyone not just the sound of or bust us but if they've been ignored and gerhard schroder chairman of the board for the north stream gas pipeline thank you for speaking with r.t. . the earth.
