thank you very much for being with us today thank you very much for having me so in your opinion why has china and still remains the greatest mystery for thinkers and scholars because there's too little interest to get to get behind the mystery you know how something stays a mystery if you don't have enough interest to to open the curtain. there's also you know somebody said the loss of german philosopher said that most people do not want to learn something new but what look at confirmation of something they already believe in and i think that's very much the case in china we have a certain picture of china and i wouldn't think exclude myself ten years ago or eleven years ago before i went to china for the first time i had a certain picture of china which was not really matching reality apart then it depends on you willing to change
a picture or do you stick with what you think how is it changed ten years on for you well. i was thinking. the chinese are mysterious people you know you can't really trust them and you never know what they think i felt that the country was much more backwards than it turned out to be. the fact is that the chinese. have still healthy and still today have kind of an innocence and openness and once they trust you they embrace you and they really become friends with you and you can criticize a lot you know you can also was chinese politicians we talk a lot of. things in china that are not as they should be. you can be very open but it has to come out of a positive spirit. and not of just looking for the negative spots book you're talking about innocence where does that come from in your opinion does it have
anything to do with the fact that china has been communist for so long. no you know i think it has to do with the with the structure of having the community first and then the individual that meant you will always part of something you were part of a family part of a community part of a city part of a province and the country and helping each other being together was part of survival and that's that's when they when you get to know the chinese and when they embrace or they are not ashamed or fair in the old we love you and we admire you and and it's so sweet that openness i'm not saying that every chinese is sweet there is a lot of competition that can be very very. fierce fighting but in general they are willing to embrace you and talk about their feelings so is china socialist or characterised their fighting
for. making that dreams come true and the fight is something sometimes a little fierce because for a long time they couldn't make their dreams come true they couldn't lift the life they wanted and now specially for the generation that's one and i do ninety's who has not lived through all the hardship and the changes. they really eman they can do whatever they want to do and that's going to be a new situation in china with a generation that has grown up with communication systems with western get information about everything that you can achieve in life and they're going to fight for achieving they have goals they want to they want to be the best your husband john or nice that argues that china is a country without ideology do you agree with that it doesn't have any it's in.
search for an ideology and i would replace the word there's a lot of search for meaning because. when you are starving making an income get enough you know you don't need any other dogs but once you have your basic income once you've made economic dreams come true to a certain degree. then you realize that's not everything in life and i have a column in china you stated the second largest newspaper and i got a lot of e-mails in reaction to the column and many of the questions are. you know what is really the sense what's really the meaning of life what can i do with my life and how can i serve my country that's something that you wouldn't hear from the west so much you know how could i surprise country it's more from how can i so
how can the country serve me and that search for meaning for spiritual fulfillment that that we can increasingly feel could be that they are searching for self identification in twenty first century. there are quite communists right now there are still strong economically they are searching for knowledge land for a position in the world they do not have enough self-confidence including the china as a as a country they have achieved so much but but they don't really. look at themselves and say well what we did prize right i don't know maybe because they are attacked much more than then acknowledged and it's not that everything is great in china lots of things that we don't agree with that we want to be in but the west is very much focusing on the failures and on the frost. and i think we. should
have a balance of being a part there is a lot of good things and of course they have to work on the not so things do you think china is striving to be number one country in the world to be this huge superpower ours of just happening. i i hesitate because he's been side i think china wants to be the middle kingdom and wants to have to pull session and if one's head that's in the in the in the you know the history of china as really an empire is not out of the chinese head but they are not fighting to dominate the world are they they are they want to play a role in the world that they are slowly growing into simply syas of kaname the growing size of the economy and by the number of people so i asked your husband whether china was trying to read become an empire and be
emergent to an imperialist state because if they're not fighting for it but they're fighting for it economically because they're improving ties with weaker countries. could it be that they will be become an empire that dominates the world by growing economic ties with other countries i don't know where the live in the world where you really really wonder can become a. dominant empire like the roman empire and all the other piles that followed. i don't think it's in this way and also i think that there's quite a ways to go and you know america is a fortune trillion economy and china is still only one center one fourth of it so there's a ways to go and also you know think of the role that the u.s. plays culturally i mean the influence that louis has in the culture of the globe
is a much higher one and i think that's one of the things that china is really really has to establish what is its cultural identity in the twenty first century and when we have a chinese armani when they do not call pete the. you know the. when they have. people who stand for a man then what they own most of which let's say and i'm not very good around the pope and so you know what i mean they they have to create the chinese brand the cultural leadership that still is in the hands of the u.s. in many ways but right now china owns about one third of the u.s. for in-depth and dollar is at a very vulnerable situation i mean people are even talking they could devalue their
future. what is the smartest way out of this impasse for china i think you know economists are quarrelling or are having different opinions so i really would not claim that i have the answer to that so when the u.s. will hit rock bottom it will also have found a solid ground and then rise because it's not that the capacity of the u.s. is gone the capacity is still there and the chinese are very smart to the situation and invest with let's say we can in dollar or not so i think they're going to work it out in their smart enough to do so also one more question china is more and more assertive in the south china sea do you think china is a country that actually could envisage a conflict you know it's a book but it wouldn't i mean it's too smart to you can't win worse anymore so why
we're trying to really start a war which would be destructive for china itself so while there's a lot of posturing on the political side economically you know it's it's much too much integrate to really start a war on either side so you know there's posturing there's a lot of. posturing because of internal reasons to show strength to its people but but we don't i don't think that's what you think china strategies for russia they've been very good friends and they've been not so good friends i think they are seeking an alliance they are seeking trade but no they are very close neighbors so i think china in general wants to optimize relationships whether it's russia or america or europe or a size that thank you very much for this and trachea. nature
with much stronger no holds barred look at the global financial headlines. this report on. the u.s. charges two radians with allegedly plotting to kill the saudi arabian ambassador to washington as part of a major terrorist attack american officials say they are committed to holding iran accountable but arar rejects the accusations calling them a joke. the russian premier is meeting the chinese leader in beijing on a visit to boost cooperation can balance out the financial and political dominance of the west birthday party and reached a settlement more than agreements on energy prices. in israel struck a long awaited prisoner swap deal doubt will see jewish soldier gilad shalit freed in exchange for over three thousand palestinians. held captive for five years.

a dozen goals past and or a. while from straight past balls here to raise the finals in denmark stunned portugal to book their place. and tiger woods forces return to the top of the rankings ahead of the one challenge in california. by russia have put their place say euro the euro twenty twelve championships after a thumping six know when over and over in moscow the host of the damage in the first half as they scored four with allen's is a core of grabbing a brace and then adding two more after the break watching it with richard burton paul faked. brochure only with the points coming into very clash. of the whole country was expecting much much more from the competent side as major corner what is officially the world's joint worst sides. under fifty thousand fans who turned out to watch them didn't have to wait long for the first goal challenge of lloyd meeting his second goal in as many games for the national side after only
five minutes but a class about their opponents some would double barely midway through the half a signal not the slightest of touches to undergo a shot in st keep the russians one finished though they had only one ones by more than a single goal in this qualification campaign but they were determined when that run against van doren from vermont public change limited free on thirty minutes. so boys continued his rich vein of form the twenty one year old scoring a fine goal on the stroke of half time after his tally to four for the national scene. unsurprisingly the host seized up in the second half however davies we should call find time to score his post had a goal for his country to make the school five mail from substitute junior billiard do you know who was making a rare appearance concrete of a random house with goal of the night here too in the field picking the ball up for around twenty metres zines it will try and left foot shocks which gave the visitors
keeper no chance jubilation for the russians unproduced we should call you crying this when with his first ever goal and he was happy to give the fans a performance to savor to the world and everyone is over the moon at the moment we played really well today and it's nice to give the fans something to cheer about a lot of supporters came out to cheer us on today and the coach said it was time we started scoring more goals for them that russia dominated everyone should have played in this qualification campaign and igor some show was delighted that he signs to win for only to second time one more one goal in their qualifying group. it was nice to start finding the back of the net we've played well and throughout the group like when we drew here with garlands know no one we lost again slovakia but we weren't able to score but look who's on our side tonight. you could attach both campaign is indian liner notes of russian managed to win a qualification read for the first time in
a decade but not the hard work starts with the dutchman has around eight months to prepare his side of euro two thousand and twelve finals in poland and ukraine and russia from paul klee to r.t. moscow. was that africa said he was relieved russia did not have to enter the playoffs and revealed that saying would not prepare for a friendly but he criticised some clubs for being reluctant in letting their players turn at the national side. very happy with that. so hopefully the owners are happy as well sometimes there are some doubts about it because we can play two from the matches next game in the world already some protests from some owners so i don't understand that with the way they think because i think they have to think about well because it's very important so we are willing to think about the clubs well so we only play one one game and we don't they are happy are what really be against the surface he wanted to play
a much tougher opposition i'm not friends you've been playing recently against likes of iran counted districts of the opposition be facing your is really much tougher so you know. really but we still get confirmation that more so i can also fault him it is not. so this is how great playing finished russia thought all about ireland who go into the playoffs every expense of armenia after base and then he won him terribly with ari shapiro struck a tiny underlining his team's achievement. i see i see so many games. someone the best in the group who are. going to claim they can call very well. we can leave. in the foot as he said very a great result. really. because you know there are plenty of. business information from.
elsewhere france thought day after a draw against bosnia needed victory in paris to qualify automatically jacko had given a visit his lead there in the first half of the great strike but late poems i mean naturally goes down in history with the resulting penalty and france appoint to send them to a european championship golf course near who have never qualified for a major tournament and the playoffs. and let's have a look at all the teams that have qualified joining how ukraine and poland are russia and france england are there to denmark have made it after beating portugal three one and a winner takes all encounter last night top three page three to win over the netherlands who already qualified meant they go through as the best runner up greek support their place with a two one win over georgia also there are defending champions at spain who beat scotland three one yesterday to end scottish playoff hopes germany kept one hundred percent record in group a beating belgium three one and it's only one negri
rounding off their campaign for the three year when i've been northern ireland and it means eight teams are in the playoffs as we mentioned they include ireland and portugal and bosnia plus new seatings to compete as they began one nil last night stefania made their list clear this is slovenia is she one win over serbia in group c. a checkbook their place with a four one minute left away near her a should be seen or to go into the heart of thursday's draw along with montenegro despite their two year old defeat to switzerland the matches are over the sea legs and the show jewels in november the eleventh or twelfth return game on nov fifteenth. we were all russia's under twenty one team is fighting pre-placed at the european championships that will kick off in israel in twenty thirteen and have maintained a hundred percent record with a third win from three against portugal constantly but as the thing to. russia had started their qualifying campaign confidently with two wins on the road and a goal difference of plus eight and in their third encounter the russian space their
main group six trials for to go on home sell a team q just outside moscow and the guy baser is a man to control from the start in a forest have a few scoring opportunities there will punish for a moment of slickness after half an hour with some of the on the phone himself searching we are marking the edge of the box and hammering the ball through the wall and the flailing hands of the goalkeeper to pull or to go at how time however whatever they had coached said the hosts at half time seemed to work as russia came out even more determined and everything swung the hosts way within just four second half minutes first by the yak a live cross to the four course where alexander got put in headed home the twenty year old forwards in freezing his telling qualifying to an impressive five goals in three matches and then substitute in fellow dinner must go forward the other smaller group will bust three defenders to beat the keeper at the knee of course to
make it to one up to fifty four minutes and that's how it's finished the home side totally in control and giving the board of yes no chance to equalise normally i was a little bit surprised that there was no one in front of the goal when i paid the movers so i decided to shoot and i made the right decision. by the head coach said we should play our game in which solid defending would score and when the match is on the time and happens we conceded in our goal amounts to come from behind and reserved only in portugal didn't have any scoring opportunities in the second half rushing out to a group with nine points from three matches well portugal sleepy zero poland into heard his name out of our team. faith the general secretary jeremy has been on a visit to russia to check on the host nation's private asked for the twenty eighteen world cup and i just. under seven until the competition kicks off but there's just one year to go until russia must name the eleven cities and twelve
