exceeds in europe mr further why should the e.u. increase its dependence on gazprom is get me or my. opinion guide or stance on we're not talking about russia's dependence we're talking about cooperation between russia on the one side and the european union on the other in the energy sector you know 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 gazprom and europe. regulator e permission is not the issue but the e.u. germany and the rest of the e.u. nations need gas to sensibly reform their energy policy to keep 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 the you know better than anyone else for a space that had written it recently switched from export to india old europe needs a gas supply to maintain a stable mix of energy sources but its 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 and says 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 look. bakit
ideological difference yet again that was for the could russia switch supply to china if brussels keeps up its hostility was there listen as it were to your informants of which is in a situation where it could ship gas to china and all of asia and europe i hope russia never has to make a choice of 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 you a session to turkey that would be a sound strategy aimed into the future the rest is yesterday's debate alice and is dead but haven't guessed that if russia does decide to go east could that mean the gas shortfall for europe now does vitter sneak know that low not happen russia was an exceptionally reliable supplier during soviet times so no one has to worry about
that judging what i will say again that you're a canard it is incredibly important for russia to keep it a budget balance among other things therefore we're not talking about dependence 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 is that 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 they're dubious spot 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. bindi i made mine consider this
me and my team were the people who originally negotiated that deal with our energy suppliers we had agreed to make a sensible exit out of nuclear strategy that was followed by a short period when the federal government thought our agreement should be overturned and of course they've since gone the other way and started to plotting 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 cultures but primarily from russia and the reason we need to build a gas power station. with this in your debt crisis mr sarkozy says no hero no europe surely you're worth of oil without the euro so and there's i know i know for more 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 it theoretically things turn out differently which i find very improbable of youth we will still have a united europe it is vital and or prague you would chancellor when greece cooked its books to join the euro should you have stopped athens from joining the single currency club in new. york i do not think that was our situation of the european commission its employees that had to conduct inspections they had letters know that we could take the responsibility for greece's e.u. a session on ourselves but it was a purely preparatory mission conducted by the european commission the national governments we had made the decision to take greece in we could not claim without having firm proof that the information we got then was on diplomatically speaking not entirely correct very much keep in mind that the european parliament voted in favor of greece's membership who. most unanimously including the conservatives who
are now trying to distance themselves from that decision you know sometimes in politics you don't want to believe things that he wants condoned or actually happening. and lots. of the commission was wrong or the handling of greece has been wrong since it ended which which is it ends in. the upgrade of 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 that i think we can start taking care of stabilizing the markets 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 are investments of agree that it would be good to see wealthy greek citizens who are currently investing abroad pay taxes in their own country 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 debt 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 that 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 of the like 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. us that is not just because of the past but for the sake of our citizens
future that will come from the larger being to small question many germans many dutch people many finns are angry at having to pay. of a roll that's enough for it see and i can understand that but i have to explain it very consistently to the current generation of political leaders that it's within our own interest 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 have a dollar do not think we should feel bad about other nations getting stronger be they russians chinese brazilians south africans or 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 eyes on the other hand we have an understanding that an aging society with a decreasing number of people who are deployed has problems over that so. we started taking care of our problems in time for the rest will regret it and be forced to take on a harder mission this goes for everyone not just the sound of all bust us but if they've been ignored and. chairman of the board for the nordstrom gas pipeline thank you for speaking with.
that out of many we are one that while we breathe out we have. to me the american dream is to live in peace and prosperity and freedom and a government under socialism is not a government afraid. to plan here at least i have very motivated out across the country who are activists who are willing to fight for what they think is right for themselves but the fact is forty corporate. i. i. let. we are drowning in property drowning and i think it's threatening our lives it's cutting off our. it's making real democracy. all but impossible.

a union with the latest sporting action for you. this is sports today plenty head over the next ten minutes or so including the stories of. cream rising day two at the car rally seems to remain champions moved to the top of the standings in argentina. late starters detroit's boston poll finds me to wait for games to witness a victory this n.b.a. season but the pistons are now on a winning streak. and hitting the heights it was world record breaking time and some of the evil of this week with motorcycles. no less flying higher on longer but for the. great stuff more i'm not coming up but let's get underway a little soft of there in argentina where it hasn't taken long for the car rally

promising russian racing. drivers to emerge over the last few years mikail been a teammate of reigning tomorrow formula one champion sebastian vettel in their younger track days but as constantine but top off reports their careers have taken very different paths today. behala lashon is a well known driver in his homeland the twenty three year old's progress over the past few years has been impressive he became the first of a russian to win an international championship at the arena world serious and last year it looked like he was ready to take on the biggest challenge and sit behind a n f one will but then the support of his sponsors stopped and the lesson lost you see it you want to get the from a one way ticket to new. materials some support. it's not a secret that anybody in the form or. is made also reading the budget that pilots
sponsor will bring so. this case. it was very difficult for us to get a formal one this year i lash launched 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 who has him vettel who used to be a lucian's teammate in randal's world serious. and were i glad that. the dolphin. in one team and one championship at the same time i know that i was meeting him quite often and though he is a formal one. so it also makes me feel better. eyelash 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 career is in jeopardy however it seems he's getting back on track as he starts the season in the carling g.p. two team from mainland the must go i didn't take part in the test drives and hasn't signing contracts with the team so he's still anxious about competing in the upcoming serious. car from the us here is quite an interesting car because it's brand new and nothing the same so. you get a faster pace here compared their brand new design. and it's quite a bit faster than it was before. the track at the opening one printer working on the six orkney thirty three formula one drivers have come through the g.p. to see recently past four years in the illusion issue to make the most of his chance and prove he's worthy of an f one driver because
a bite out of archie. it continues to be a busy post lockout holiday season in the n.b.a. but detroit funs aren't complaining that pistons notching their second straight win after starting the season with three consecutive losses the home side showing their fighting spirit early on ben gordon winning a vicious scramble for the loose ball before hitting it three for an eight six lead big ben finishing up with twenty six points but detroit's hit a roadblock in the form of orlando's dwight howard the five time legal all-star ending with nineteen point seven five steals howard however fell died late in the fourth just about the time the pistons kicked their game into another gear tayshaun prince fourteen points from the evening nine seventy eight. over the tennis where spain remain unbeaten in the group phase of the hopman cup on a bell at medina for numbed over duff school doing the necessary against their chinese counterparts. in perth it was china who struck first though in the women's

a life that fried by a witch but the bicycle has lived his entire career that culminating in the biggest bud of all in moscow on saturday russia still welterweight kickboxer against one of the toughest men in the business mags and bettis the reigning champ best to greet the second one legend to death the thirty one year old. in march made his way up the letter by beating rouse in the animals decision the stand around he didn't wait to run somebody he's also known as i remind but the move to be made of something even stronger in the night one of his danger is nice forcings him to give up the fight due to a duel fracture early in the first round explodes it looks clear when the pistol heats came. my plan for the fight was to make mike constantly move and not let him stay firm on his feet that's where he's extremely dangerous but punching very hard
when it comes to knees and kicks well that's where i'm strongest. so who's next will but the front that question is yet to be answered although the met himself knows what he wants. to view isn't the very best k. one fight and should keep coming to russia to show what they have to offer now i can fight on my own terms and not have to travel to. the main event of the night was preceded by a number of exciting fights russia's mixed martial arts. to go in ukraine cost enough and the same native was quick to show why she deserved the favorite stat claiming a unanimous decision when a hugely skilful fly there and on top of that a lady that is akin to deciding not to speak to archie until she fresh. this list of the cigarettes i had to dope took when food rules which are not quite usable for
me just pay a lot of attention to kiki here while my forte's book sing though tonight i focused on wrestling and that's what gave me the age meanwhile the clash between russia. and china. so a real master class of. the man from the martial arts homeland however schooled by the local was simply better in all aspects of the clash over r t mostly. finally it's not too often that i for one anyway see a snowmobile fly by thoughts essentially what happened in san diego this week embarcadero marina park playing host to a couple of world record attempts for the longest snowmobile and motorcycle jumps to leave the valley. the brave men ready to hit me right the vehicles fearing the wardak out how to run one hundred sixty kilometers per hour the effort brilliantly

it is now. just after nine pm here in moscow this is artsy with me rule research i welcome to the program the u.s. has responded to a warning from iran to keep its aircraft carriers out of the persian gulf by saying that it was ships will continue to sail that the american navy has pulled out of an area where iran was holding ten days of naval wargames during which it successfully testified a number of different missiles but russia's a defense ministry says that despite the latest military exercise the iranians don't have the technology to make intercontinental ballistic missiles meanwhile france is pushing for stricter sanctions saying it sure is developing nuclear weapons it's urged e.u. countries to follow the u.s. in freezing iranian central bank assets and imposing them boggo on oil exports iran has been.
