11:19 am
to you live from moscow now the european parliament in strasburg has been debating a report into whether garia and romania are ready to join the visa area it would mean that easier travel to and from those countries within the e.u. but critics suggest it could open the floodgates for a wave of organized crime or even illegal immigrants and for them there's more of this we are joined live by sarah lightfoot a british liberal democrat m.e.p. who is live for us in strasbourg and also the european parliament will decide whether to recommend romania and bulgaria as membership of the shame get in the zone what concerns would you have if they said yes. well i think the european economies can support from a. joining because they meet the current criteria for access into the border free sharing and the problem is that member states have belatedly realized that they should have had. measures of corruption fighting organized
11:20 am
crime as part of the criteria for that accession but it's too late to move the goalposts it's too late to judge remaining about kerio on conditions that did not apply to other countries when they joined the schengen what we need to do is in the future we have an ongoing monitoring of corruption and fighting mafia cry for all members of the schengen zone indeed all e.u. countries because not all of them including my own u.k. is not actually in china so we need to reinforce the political will to tackle corruption because i'm afraid i've called it the elephant in the room it's the it's the threat that everybody is aware of but we haven't done enough either talking about it or most importantly action to tackle corruption as you're saying corruption the elephant in the room but when it comes to were romania and bulgaria in the membership of the shotgun zone the decision was delayed. over those concerns
11:21 am
of corruption but talk about the timing now why is it why is it back on the table what's changed. well it's finally up to the e.u. government to decide whether countries can join and they're meeting next week to decide but. the european parliament just has a has a role of whether they agree. but of course there has also been migration pressures other pressures are the worries about those countries joining the border freeze particularly arising for the events in north africa the arab spring which of course has been pretty well but one of the offshoots of migration across the mediterranean tragically with hundreds of people dying actually in the med but pressures on countries like italy and greece pressures with which they should have better than they have put the fear is that if you don't have internal
11:22 am
borders migrants can move north and west across the e.u. without encountering passport. checks as well as you say that you have you have concerns about a border free zone there and concerns about what's going to a legal immigrants here what would you propose then how would you support the borders as you as you have suggested well as i say actually rumania i'm gary have passed the test asset and assessed by the european commission for the way that they manage their external border and that is something which i think it would be unfair now to move the goalposts and claim that remain involved here it didn't meet other tests which had been in belatedly thought of the first is that across the board in the e.u. we have to strengthen our external borders we have to get much better at dealing with refugees and migrants including by having legal channels of migration and we also need to move tackling corruption and organized crime much higher up the agenda
11:23 am
but we have to collectively we mustn't just sort of pick on this member special that member state has to be honest the e.u. is failing collectively as much as there are weaknesses in individual member states as you say it should be a collective effort to secure the borders with. any peace or a lot to thank you got all the time we have concentrating thank you. so if you are with our sea life in moscow let's check out some other international news we're covering for you this hour and the e.u.'s foreign legion has proposed one hundred and fifty million euros of aid to help producers hit by the current eco like crisis earlier other e.u. officials warned it germany against making inaccurate comments about the source of the contamination which has so far claiming twenty two lives meanwhile one hundred new eco infections have been reported the number of people affected now it stands out over two thousand three hundred. syrian authorities have promised a strong response after one hundred twenty policemen were reportedly killed by
11:24 am
armed gangs in the north of the country the government said it would act with force and in line with the law to restore control state t.v. reports that the security forces died in an ambush in a town near the turkish border while responding to residents calls for protection of militant groups over twelve hundred people have died in protests against president bashar al assad since mid march. right now or the business is next with. thanks rory the peace taking steps to sell its fifty percent stake in russia's. pizza state run ross nipped the move could help the british oil majors save its none on corporation deal with russia's largest oil producer if he recently failed to buy out his russian partners would block the deal with was snapped and now these parties are objecting to the sale saying they will lose control of the company and the save the deal could help prove its financial situation but it may also be
11:25 am
a blow to the companies who will help with. now to discuss this issue in more detail i'm joined by and analysts from investor for a different research group go to get it thank you so much for being with us so how high are the chances that b.p. would actually go ahead and sell its stake in a profitable business. why would it do that well i do not believe that. people actually sell it stay poor simply for the reason that. a shareholders of the joint pain russian joint venture will effectively cede control and blocking power to strategic alliance so they will do anything in their power and all possible to to sit down and negotiate with b.p. so basically this is an instrument for the government or for b.p. to affect a site so that they would actually sell their stake well it's an instrument for b.p. to affect a are to sit down and negotiate over the perhaps the price of the of the
11:26 am
shareholder and of our contract so basically we cannot take this story for granted as as we see it reported for example in the wall street journal wasn't that that was the initial stage of initial article so b.p. will never sell its stake well wise it wouldn't ask at least for the price that is because he said like forty billion dollars well i think the most likely what we're most likely to see is further round and. goshi ations between a and b. where perhaps we'll see. joint venture or a joint entity or b.p. and rosneft buying out. at a more reasonable price than the one they asked for before which was around thirty two billion and believed by many to be about thirty percent premium to the market valuation why do you think this story is been in the making for such a long time now that nobody has been able to find a compromise with a knife in the us so it's
11:27 am
a very important issue for all parties involved if he's interested in the strategic alliance with international oil major which will fund the exploration of the arctic and the development of the region and b.p. for b.p. it's an opportunity to grow ofter it was effaced the major still wind in the mexican gulf and for a for the shareholders of a are it's an opportunity to sell out of a company and perhaps exit it oh i thank you very much for the good of you to analysts from invest at the end of end of research. all right we have time to just look at the markets how they're faring this hour with the united states and they are trading in positive territory rebounding after a long streak of losses and tracking gains in europe now leading the gains on the dow is intel it's up two point two percent while of procter and gamble is losing half a percent. so markets in europe are also higher half an hour before closing rio tinto
