very welcome to this is also your home breaking news story now full of people confirmed dead after iraq's oil rig in the country's fall re sinks during a storm the search operation is continuing throughout the night fourteen people have safe all been rescued but schools remain missing. and today's main news in the week's top stories fresh clashes flare up in western kansas town just days after a demonstration by oil workers ended with and that the people dead. the west and his allies mounting pressure on the syrian regime as russia fights to get its draw off resolution accepted at the u.n.
aimed at solving the crisis peacefully. plus the weights finally avers russia's accepted as a fully fledged member of the world trade organization after eighteen years of tough towards. next we talked to the e.u. trade commissioner for his perspective on russia's membership. you trade commissioner called the goodies in geneva to welcome russia into the world trade organization he warns it comes at a time when the euro crisis threaten the world with recession mr de gucht leaders are insulting each other the euro's fall into new lows how worried are you about this stage of the euro debt crisis i see that. people some people continue to fing that. sooner or later we will have serious problems with the euro. and that's obviously influencing the debate but this is simply not true i mean the euro is
going to continue there to stay and europe will do everything that's to see to preserve the european union it's not a matter of choice you know it's not a matter of having different turn of this very clear cut political decision you know is there to say full stop nicolas sarkozy's just call david cameron an obstinate kid while e.u. leaders getting personal lives not up to me to make comments on what president sarkozy is saying but generally i think one should avoid to become personal in that kind of discussions these are difficult discussions for everybody we're going through a tough time and so let's keep cool i mean. i would say don't get personal francis said britain's credit rating should be downgraded before it's do you agree with them when you look at the financial position. of great britain it's not better
than the let's say consolidated position off of the european monetary union obviously not. the difference is of course that there you have a state with a central bank that is a lender of last resort and that makes the difference look at what the situation of of the dog. i mean and look at the debt situation in the united states it's also certainly not better than the european one nevertheless they don't have problems to borrow money on the international financial markets for exactly the same reason you know and i think we should learn from that and go in the direction of. mutual izing did that then you would see the interest rates going down if they succeed the european central bank should also intervene vigorously and make it clear to the financial markets that is only speculation it's also fear that banks that is in the markets there is no reason for that. ten billion dollars through the to help the e.u. with its debt crisis what role could play in the e.u.
to me this feels that everybody so old states have an interest that. nothing dramatic happens with the euro because europe is the biggest economy in the world you know so everybody has a clear interest in that so it's not by accident that for example a couple of weeks ago the fed the reason the. british national bank. switzerland japan. are taking together with you to be a central bank were taking concerted efforts to put liquidity in the markets the inside some by accident because obviously this is of major concern to everybody in the world and russia being only our neighbor but also being the major source of
energy to europe which means that you have the biggest and probably also the best clients they have an obvious interest in not letting degrading the european economy the united states thinks exports to russia can double over the next five years off . how much can you expose to russia will also go up i see several. big advantages in russia becoming a member of the w t o. for example that is part of those accession conditions it's. a completely new set of rules that respect to specify it respect to figure seventeen norms for a for food is also very important what we having concluded proceed back to the old the motive sector where russia had been taking. measures and now well that we have come to and to a compromise on the use that certainly contributes to more trade although that event that i see is that russia it will be possible to attract more foreign capital
because. their access into the w.t. o. will. give them assurances they were in a. legal environment that is more transparent so than it was so that it was before so i expect. our trade with russia to rise considerably some economists think countries have put in meaningless barriers to stop russia joining with. how fair has the process been i haven't been active in this file for the last eighteen years have been the. steering the process for the last six months let's say. and. i believe fair negotiations yes i mean some time stuff and they go about with if you will by both parties to get to a result there also major interests at stake you know it's not a chat of course it's a negotiation but i believe that they were fairly treated and they were also asking
us to be let's say lenient and for example in the automotive sector was not easy to come to decision because there was this new scheme with very high level of local companies and so on so it was not easy i think it's a fair deal you know and once you have a concluded the deal you should stop discussing the content of the ones that is a deal is a deal and then you execute it many think they've made too many concessions in agricultural industry to join the how can you show them that's not the case it's certainly not true that they made. too many concessions. we know we already know. russia is a big market for our agriculture products and that has to see also with the fact that they cannot. answer the demands on their own they cannot so they do not produce the necessary food and vegetables and be for their own population but there
is no reason that they could not develop that industry the same with cars they have to renovate their whole automotive industry because it had become its i believe that it is agreement that we have been making will result in the modern. industry but of course we have been negotiating in a way that also our own interests are protected that's where they go sation is about going to have to negotiate having in mind your own interest but also having and by then also the other party needs to find its interest in the negotiation because if not. even if you were to conclude a negotiation it would never be a fruit off america's jaxon van dijk amendment bulls favorable trade relations with russia has been called a relic of the cold war should washington now get rid of it it's up to the united states to decide that but. i believe such a move. would have quite some traction on the hill is the european union along with
the united states this fall the most complaints against china since it joined the world trade organization should be treated any differently we treat every ball the exactly in the same way i mean. when we get the complaints. we analyze it very carefully and then you take a decision and whether it's china or russia or even the u.s. that doesn't make a difference i mean once there is a problem we take action and i think we should do that and we do it in i would i say almost. i wouldn't call it automatic but very much. a rules based approach. so we are not so. looking for four victims all enemies i mean we are not interested in that game so for us it's to say whether it's china or russia and only us when china's trade with the jump it's almost three hundred percent in the ten years that it says it joined. how much do you expect russia's trade with the e.u.
to go up by isn't exactly the same i believe. because. the chinese have been doing. from a historical point of view this is tremendous is developing an economy which is very much across the board. russia's economy yes and much more focused on a more limited number of sectors i think it really depends upon russia action they take if they take the direction of. being involved also in new sectors and probably the agreements to get into the deal will be more food for them but that's up to them in the due process slower than how this be resolved we have. a scheme in accession. whereby they will have to go to market prices over time. so that is not only. by the way
but was a member of the you know you have to go to market prices and you cannot have a pricing you trade commissioner karel de gucht thank you for speaking with l.t. . was the plant that was responsible for causing the world's worst industrial disaster and now it had been abandoned in a condition where it had become a source of pollution and the most recent study that was done shows that this water pollution and spreading. more than hundred thousand people. to be
