in union on the other in the energy sector new stream is viewed as a priority project both by russia and the e.u. because it's been part of europe's energy networks since two thousand and six recognized by the european parliament and the e.u. council of energy ministers 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 skitt any. regulator a position is not the issue but the e.u. germany and the rest of the 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 codependency which is a good thing i would be happy to see european companies invest into russia and european markets open up to russian companies it's a good free market economy and i think europeans need gas or gas has many uses here 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 these you know better
than anyone else for instance that written recently switched from export to india europe needs a gas supply to maintain a stable mix of energy sources but it's climatic conditions require it needs norway's gas but also russia's gas and therefore i think opening the market up to question companies would be a wise move of or to short their name to do some e.u. officials oppose russia whatever it does get us is for the best 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 ideological differences yet again that misrata could russia switch supply east to china if brussels keeps up its hostility was that it's a known as it towards your involvement of wishes in a situation where it could ship gas to china and all of asia and you. i hope russia
never has to make a choice the russian government is evidently pro european but europe cannot keep pushing russia away it hurts russians pride 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 will only improve if it manages to enter a tiny hard to ship with russia on and at the same time grant only u.s. session to turkey that would be a sound strategy aimed into the future the rest is yesterday's debate unless and is from guess that if russia does decide to go east could that mean the gas shortfall for europe wide as it is need to know whether or not happy russia was an exceptionally reliable supplier during soviet times so no one has to worry about that ranting but 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 dependence here but a codependency to get 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 is 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 the low spot prices on gas there dubious 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 player 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. have been in your mid mind lloyd and consider this me and my team were 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 we need gas as an interim energy source for the sake of energy security that's the reason we need to buy gas from normally from other cultures but primarily from russia and the reason we need to build a gas power station. with this in your debt crisis mr sarkozy says no hero no europe surely your will survive without the euro so that there's i know i know for more this is a quote my successor in office likes to go to of course europe is 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 of 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 govern it. 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 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 the national government we had made the decision to take greece in we could not claim without having firm proof that the information we got then was on 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. for under either the commission was wrong or the handling of gray. this 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 you know i hope the package of aid agreements that european leaders have agreed on is implemented if that's the case then i think we can start taking care of stabilizing the market because it was a great deal of help from greece of course there is one point i would like to make the country should not be broken down not only does greece need the budget discipline which is of course true but what greece needs most are investments of agree that it 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 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 it's been there gave 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 correct it in germany's interested both politically and economically in a functioning europe the economic interest is easily explained that 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 dictates 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 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 u.s. that is not just because of the pastors but for the sake of our citizens future of that conference a lot of being to small question many germans many people many finns are angry at having to pay. of a role that's enough for it seemed like an. stand 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 next year if markets around us crumble it harms us we have to explain it to our people the new generation the prospects for long lasting peace allies in europe the door 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 it doesn't take but 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 stayed to stay more innovative when we fulfill our agenda of twenty ten 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 as it must provide for change i wonder if the rest of the e.u. states having understood this a decade later we'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 deployed has problems of that so. we started taking care of our problems in time as the rest will aggressively be forced to take on a harder mission this goes for everyone not just the sound of old bus this but if they've been ignored and. chairman of the board for the north stream gas pipeline thank you for speaking with l.t. . tragically it goes. squandered morning.

a high level the surprising part it's not canada. or russia it's italy. it's the players claiming one of their numerous domestic titles in style from the early ninety's. been almost famous as the big i mean we have a very long history about hockey and in milan or in milan or at the very very long because we started a nineteen twenty three in the first being there was built in milan and when we were one of the the first you know out here on the hockey fans here in milan love the game are excited by this game and probably there's some people being fired a bit sick of football for other reasons saw there some kind of research for new motions and i believe i saw case it's perfect for that nevertheless i still keep still some distance from topping phil both in terms of popularity here
a sentiment echoed by a person from the moment of the game canada now calls me on the phone it's played with love but because it's it's still very under appreciated you don't get the same emotion you know and so you can be mad for a minute but it passes very quickly as opposed to a canadian hockey match it's talked about for you know for months if not for the whole season and so it's that is a huge difference in watching a canadian game versus an italian game this is the steady olympic dream one of the main venues for the two thousand and six week or olympic program one of your resume and there is barely a reminder. of the epic hockey battles that to place here the ice rink was removed soon after the games finished allowing the stadium to become the new home for the u. vent those and three enough food book clubs one hundred miles east however things brighter
outfit milan there are some blue are set to join the continental how he league in twenty twelve i believe they are a group that we have been agreed that we have a couple minutes in terms of the organization to join the league of course is not going to be a very big deal but. we have time to develop a new ship called in two thousand and six winter olympics didn't affect the popularity of fucking the country at all of course the games were a great event for the telling people and stadiums are renovated and a lot of infrastructure developed so some local clubs did get a lot but not the telling game as a whole in this respect the kitchen was another chance for us not only for milan but for the entire country to take a significant step forward you know that olympian of the match the addition of versus blue may seem like a small step for the kid but for the club itself it is quite simply and message fully. robert gordon r.t.
