triggering concerns the government is stoking social conflict to tighten its grade on my dollars. and up next on our interview with the former top legal man in the european council is young claude perigee despite the economic gloom swamping 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 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 and event 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 to ask is is there something fundamentally wrong with europe at this point you know this. venture is song from which is new has never been made. so we are experiencing the problems with the currency i'm sure we. exempt but. we fault in the beginning. to bring. we call 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 i said there's the question of sovereignty where individual member states feel like they're just giving more powers to brussels these. union. of them owed nation states we have a lot of history. civilization behind them so it's living full of these states spain very big greece spain portugal and so on france. to. share. the same to share their power. but in this in city i think in the more than the word first of all we have been in the european union all the 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 power spurred to build an internal market among all of us which is five hundred million consumers and then. but that's the argument always presented by the e.u. this notion of there being no war being more peaceful but if you 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 where they fry me and totally disagree with you the new has i cannot make any decision that some member states so if you have the ear you say that's a story of the story of the number states no member state would remain in be if it was in its interest. in it and the out there
is states because they think that european union his helping if they want to simply seeing european union is a creation of the states what are you worried about the new 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 you're half i am trying to give my two to two to give 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 the euro 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 have no hope of poor so i think we have to give hope to these people and to take decisions visible credible and this time the birth 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 hooves fall the member states to behave and to have a lot of convergence of the budgetary and economic policies in order to establish who really are and you economy and monitor you know what you've already had these rules before and it will do you just added new rules and those old rules don't really help that you know we do know how this was we did not say that a national budget you are going to make we are going to say yes or no before
you are going to be able to accept it we have said before taking any economic policies of importance you must discuss and have the green light of your companions in the common currency that's all the work we have to do now and the work which. begin two years ago in the which is world advanced now not enough we should go much for that but it's precisely bs words isn't it of control of getting more powers from individual member states that is creating this recess defense from those countries. for by your companions you are in the same boat you are i'll be nice to a team of. climbers or mountain linked together by. doing the same boat rowing if one is fading the others will fail probably it's
a team so you are sharing the powers we're deciding to get and no one should be the weakest link which might bring a catastrophe how long will people have to bear the brunt of the consequences of you or crisis that we're in i think i do think that the time has come to take the final decisions the final decisions and that's a question for me holding weeks of hmongs lot of years i'd like to bring up a question that's been thrown around by some analysts and observers do you really need the euro to pursue this european project this is not the question we have the whole this question was twenty years ago which has been solved the. government's polymaths and so on they 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. for a few more only for greece portugal and so on but the country which has been benefiting from the most is probably germany and that would be catastrophe for germany. if you look at the trade big. of course they do a lot of trade with china but if you look in. 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 be the consequence 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 will be a great benj of the european union as 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 would i don't think so now one of the pillars of the e.u. was this free movement of people no internal borders but there have been a lot of talk about strengthening border controls and also a rise in the 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 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 organizations we can to improve the more d.d.t. of. we didn't be union and why 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 of european union they have just got past perfect just because of such as you know russia such as in other countries as well . that means that we have more. people and. so we really need to be grecian for counters as well and we have to prepare people and we have i think to have a career in order. to prepare ok i'd like to bring our defense and military spending and particular with regard to syria now a lot has also said that a military intervention is off the table context and be a u.n. security council however when france does that when it's ready to spend on a military intervention given. the e.u.
many members of the european and how broad would be impact be on the whole economy where i don't think you know maybe there was one thing and the other thing is much more being. bigger. and i don't see any intervention all you was. in syria would would. that means. baker to me. i was spending in the media expenses korea is the law and order. and libya has shown that. we have to figure. big operations outside of our territory. thanks very much for this interview.
good leverage surely to mccurry was able to build on its most sophisticated. looking at least doesn't give it doing about anything to mission to teach creation why it should care about human to end. this is. why you should care only. please. pull started here before going global and it's pulling. log in. to. choose your place. to. make your statement. spread the word.

a sixty three kilogram category which was one bus for sort of carry over while she went up against her perennial rival from kazakhstan my dear and it was a mensch of a cause and who won that battle bends the last lift of the competition to bring home a. gold medal for her country and russia had to settle for silver nevertheless she was content to pick up a medal for russia in the weightlifting. i've been preparing to fight for the gold medal but as many of you may know my injury got in the way so my primary task was to help the team and if anything's turn out to where we'll continue to try make the podium so you taking my injury into account i am happy to have won the silver proposal of a bronze for russia in the judo and it's turning out to be an excellent lympics for them on the judy amount in front of the latest to win a medal for them of i couldn't quite get rid of a final but nevertheless he was more than content to win yet another medal for
