the. book i'm buying this is r.c. the headlines. end up the syrian opposition alliance pops up in exile adding more diversion to the already front should anti regime movement while rebels on the ground apparently receive high tag arms from the outside. sweden says no to ecuador was requests to question julian assange to the embassy in london we can leak says there's no meaningful explanation for the refusal and no legal guarantees that stop all one just hand him over to the u.i. . during the army now
a law that allowed arabs living in israel to avoid military service expires triggering concerns the government is stoking social conflict at home to tighten its grip on the minority. and up next on our interview with the legal counsel to the european council zhang claude a parade despite the economic gloom swamping of europe he says the difficulties are a natural and transitional step forward. today we're joined by a. legal counsel of the european council and he also spent more than two decades as head of the legal service of the e.u. council of ministers and yes participated in a lot of the important decisions taken over the past twenty years notably the adoption of the new treaties in the european union thanks very much mr pearce for joining us today i'd like to start by quoting something you had written in the van
for two thousand and eleven and the financial times you had written it's time to admit that the large part of the you was too rapid europe's citizens no longer understand the purpose of the e.u. and for all its increased powers the european parliament the supposed repository of democratic legitimacy in europe is a relative failure like to ask is is there something fundamentally wrong with europe at this point you know this. adventure is something which is new has never been made. so we are experiencing the problems with the currency i'm sure we talk about is an example but. we fault in the beginning. to bring democracy. making or members.
will bring more. diverse work. for example but. this has been the reason you're. so that's one of the experiencing. adventure as well then again there's the question of sovereignty where individual member states feel like they're just giving more powers to brussels these. members of the euro. and union. of them oh nation states with all of history. civilization behind them so it's difficult for these states maine very good greece spain portugal and so on france. to. share. the same to share their power. but in this is city i think in the more than the word first of all and we
have been in the european union all that peace between us because we have been fighting also or the time during these two and then we have decided to try to have more poor spurted together to build an internal market among all of us which is five hundred million consumers and then policies but that's the argument always presented by the e.u. this notion of there being no war being more peaceful but if we look at the situation the economic and social situation of individual member states this isn't exactly a conducive or a recipe for peace is it really me at two thirty does agree with you the new has cannot make any decision that some member states so if you have the ear you say that's a story of the not story of the number states no member states would remain in b. if you in its interests. in it and they out
there this states because they think that european union his helping if they want to be simply saying european union is a creation of the states what are you worried about the a growing social unrest in individual countries as well as the rise of the extreme political left and right of course. it is wise since. one year when young hof i am trying to give my two to two to gave a little bit grain of sand to the discussions and to try to accelerate the way we are taking decisions in order to finish with your crisis. because we cannot go on in some countries with austerity and not giving hope to the people it is not possible just possible that people are desperate there will be in years
a falling unemployment is increasing and so on and so forth and we have a heavy price paid to co-produce parties because of them and you have these reactions of people in the streets which are completely understandable they they they have no hope of people so i think we have to give hope to these people and to take decisions visible credible understandable as soon as possible and now it's obvious that we cannot go on we have a simple fact that we need strong wars legally binding moves for the member states to behave and to have a lot of convergence of their budgetary and economy.
have sure isn't the currency so now we have the currency and what would happen if you were exploded that would be a catastrophe total catastrophe not only for greece portugal and so on but the country which has been benefiting from the most is probably germany and that would be a catastrophe for germany if you look at the trade again. of course they do a lot of trade with china but if you look in. the global picture china is a tiny part of the external trade most of the trade is done you have europe what do they do with. you know if you were exploded what you'd be the consequence of some currencies new currencies. devaluate and there will be a war of the valuations and there will be a great banjo for interval market and there would be
a great danger for the european union there is such european integration do you think that members of the government. or longer of a month and so on would take the responsibility to both the worlds this i don't think so now one of the pillars of the. free movement of people no internal borders but there have been a lot of talk about strengthening border controls and also a rise in anti immigration rhetoric where does that leave europe first we we have this freedom of movement but actually the number of workers going from one thousand three to end is unfortunately the quite weak weak you have example because of the language main leak and also the attachment to people to their regions so we have to take or decisions we can to improve the.
within the union and what i'm proposing some measures in my book on this and then the thing is immigration from the third countries you know with all the demographic trend in the countries over european union just past perfect just such as in the. other countries as well. that means that we have more old people and less younger people to support them so we will need to be grecian from other counties as well and we have to prepare people and we have i think to have a common policy in the european countries to prepare ok i'd like to bring our defense and military spending in particular with regard to syria now a lot has also said that a military intervention is. the table in the context of be a u.n. security council however when france does that when it's ready to spend on
a military intervention given this mall finances the e.u. many members of the european union how broad would be impact be on the whole economy where i don't think you know maybe i was one thing and the other thing is much more being. bigger. and i don't see an intervention all the e.u. was. in syria would would. that means. a pretty big crisis you know i was spending in the media expenses have decreased a lot in order. and libya has shown that. we have to figure these big operations outside of our territory. thanks very much for this interview.
