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 gas problem and europe is key to any. regulator reprovision is not the issue but the e.u. germany and the rest of the nations need gas to sensibly reform that 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 gasoline but also russia's gas and therefore i think opening the market up to goshen companies would be a wise move 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 what i hope we will get over it it's understandable is 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 misread the could russia switch supply east to china if brussels keeps up its hostility was there and is unknown as it were to your level man's of which is in a situation where it could ship gas to china and all of asia and europe i. 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 one 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 or less and is better from guess that if russia does decide to go east could that mean the gas shortfall for europe now does a better sneak no that no not happy russia was an exceptionally reliable supplier during soviet times so no one has to worry about that junction but i will say again that europe kamarck it is incredibly important for russia to keep it a budget balance among other things therefore we're not talking about dependency 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 it in germany or poland has a developing market important 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 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 us to go for twitter 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 damaged 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. 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 countries but primarily from russia and the reason we need to build gas power stations. with this in your debt crisis mr sarkozy says no hero no europe surely you're worth of oil without the euro so that there's i know i know former well 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 that if the euro is going to survive as a common currency even if erotically things turn out differently which i find very improbable you think we will still have a united europe it is vital in or plug you would chancellor when greece cooked its
books to join the euro should you have stopped athens from joining the single currency govern it does. 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 because it was a purely preparatory mission conducted by the european commission or not 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 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. unless either the commission was wrong or the handling of greece has been wrong. since it ended which which is
a matter kinds in 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 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 on our investments that would be good to see wealthy greek citizens who are currently investing abroad pay taxes in their own countries 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 bet to europe has from it's been they're 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 correct it in germany's interested both politically and economically in a functioning europe that the economic interest is easily explained will get 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 us that is not just because of the past 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 see and i can understand that but i have to. splay need
very consistently to the current generation of political leaders that it's within our own interests to maintain stability in other countries as germany's a nation that relies hugely on actual 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. 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 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 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 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 it must provide for change i wonder if the rest of the e.u. states having understood this a decade later will manage to take the action needed to maintain prosperity i have only 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 or the rest will regret it and be forced to take on a harder mission this goes for everyone not just the sound or bust this but if they've been ignored and gerhard schroder chairman of the board for the north stream gas pipeline thank you for speaking with l.t. .

a formal one. is made also reading the budget that pilots sponsor or will bring so. in this case. it was very difficult for us to get a home on this year i lash and launch his racing career in classical style by starting out in courting which acts like a training cumin garden for drivers and lays a foundation that many future world champions used to transform themselves into successful f one drivers among them the likes of reigning champions of us him vettel who used to be a lotions teammate in randal's world serious. and were glad that we met up with dolphins. in the one team and one championship at the same time i know that i was beating him quite often and though he is a formal one the world champion so it also makes it makes me feel better.
i lash untested an f one car at the young drivers test in abu dhabi last year and made a good impression but it will now driving practice in the support of sponsorship the promising russians can. rear isn't john pretty however it seems he's getting back on track as he starts the season in the carling g.p. two teen from england they must go i didn't take part in the test drives and hasn't signed in concert with the team so he's still anxious about competing in the upcoming serious g.p. two from the us here is quite an interesting car because it's brand new and nothing the same so. you get a faster yes yes convert their brand new design. and it's quite a bit faster than it was before i left and will hit the track at the opening one printer working on the six took me thirty three formula one drivers have come through the g.p. two series in the past four years and the lushin issue are to make the most of his
