welcome back will use a recap of the top stories on r.t. protesters in libya are calling for a final push to oust the forty one year old regime but there are concerns that a trial of colonel gadhafi could expose sensitive backroom dealings with various western nations at the same time thousands of foreigners are finding themselves trapped in the chaos and some are unable to get out of. the escalating on the rest of the arab world and especially libya has sent energy prices skyrocketing
affecting living costs and the economy all around the globe but the problem is setting the stage for a renewed or a wash by global power it's. called lake outcry and the u.k. will review the involvement of controversial u.s. security contractor lockheed martin and britain's national census rights groups allege that the government is risking the confidentiality of personal data and its reaganite in a debate on privacy and ethics nato members are constantly claiming to create new strategies and new partnerships of the face of fresh threats to global security well the alliance is trying hard to reach out to partners like russia to help its sheaves its goals r t spoke to the danish defense minister about euro atlantic security and copenhagen on the ways it can be ensured that interview's up next.
you didn't get the danish defense minister it's great to have you with us today and i'm calling from a security perspective what does a north stream gas pipeline represent for denmark and for europe. actually i think the north stream gas pipeline is another way of getting gas from russia through europe and russia and europe is so much into linked if we talk about the gas market because the. greatest afresh in gas and therefore the north stream pipeline will make sure that we can actually have gas the libert without any troubles which we've seen before and from a danish perspective we've said that according to international rules then if it's ok for the environment of course the gas pipe can be built so we have had
a very pragmatic and very you can say it business minded focus on the pipeline and i look forward to it as your country was to for us to allow our thinking is that politics say that for a layman they scatter why i think it was because we said that we we need the russian gas for the european market. and we would like to make sure that we can have the supply and have the supplier also in twenty years time and therefore the gas pipe is needed. and again according to international norms it's only if it damage the environment but you can say no so we have no political discussions or political focus on this because we saw it as a pure business press lately for the last two three years president as it has been talking a lot about reshaping the common security sound and clear up and he has proposed this common european security what's your take on that what you what's your response to this proposal i think that we can work very closely together russia and europe without having
a new structure i'm not so much in favor of putting up new structures new organizations if the old ones aren't working so i prefer to make the old ones for it one thing i'm very positive about is. the brush and nato council and i attended the russian nato council meeting in in november and there was a very. focus from russia but also from nature and we have to work together because we have some common challenges we have some common threats and we have to find solutions together. and i see that there is a way forward instead of talking about new structures you know some experts would argue that nato is a little bit outdated and it needs restructuring and this european security treaty is exactly what it needs to actually reshape itself in the world's but what i'm saying what we didn't respond was also that we actually reshaped nato and we made a new strategic concept for nato that's focusing on one of the challenges of the
world today it's a cyber attacks it's terrorism it's so piracy and it's only it's a it's a love affair except it's not a conventional threat and we stated very clearly that for nato we do not see any country to be. became to me of a fear of nature so therefore it's we actually reshape nature and i think that it does help if you started from this point with russia or restarted with russia i think that in some way. we're talking about missile defense because we also have a common threat coming from the south. and i think that's a very positive move in in the way that we are working nato in russia together and that it's also my experience that russia post i've seen nature as being the big threat going on in the war not anymore. what exactly is labor's new strategic
concept mean for costing security. i think it's. i think the new strategic concept is this is so much focusing on the new threats and not old threats and i think that it shows that we have to work very closely together in in reshaping what we are doing and use a strategic concept to say that or in denmark we also have to look into what are we doing with the danish defense how can we reshape the names defense so we can act towards the new threats towards terrorism towards cyber attacks and so i actually use the things we decided in nato also to make some changes inside the image difference now that america is a relatively small can three of. you have position in the twenty countries plus your former prime minister is now the head of nato so it's sometimes it's in denmark really disappointing about its weight when you think what life really.
actually it's what i've seen and what i experience and because we are so much focusing on doing having soldiers deployed to places where we can make a difference for example in afghanistan in the helmand province area for example and we've been in kosovo eleven on a. cow we do encounter piracy. at the coast of somalia and we are we when ever we decide to deploy soldiers we say can we make a difference and if we can make a difference we say yes and that's also why i think we are all great because we we sometimes we say no we say well if we can't make a difference then let somebody else do it but what we think it's important to be an international player and only i say it's you don't need to be then we're going to small state but instead of just being a small state we have to be a smart state so i've introduced that what we are actually doing and defense policy issues and security policy issues we will choose to be smart state. we choose to be
involved special places around the world where we can make a difference while it can ransom goes on that really is the hot spot right now and getting people to believe that it's completely unrealistic for nato troops to leave it's gotten started by two thousand and fourteen what do you think. i think i think it's i think we can leave with our battle groups but i think also that we have to stay in afghanistan after two thousand and fourteen to do training of the of the police to do training of the african defense and afghan army and that's also why and what i see that when i see the russian playroom and i have some very good discussions yesterday with the vice foreign minister. and when we talk about what else what comes after two thousand and fourteen one of the things we agree upon is that we need to support the african reconsolidation and reintegration process to make sure that after two thousand and fourteen that the afghans can actually take
a war themself or be responsible for security but we also have to make sure that you don't end up having with all an internal war in afghanistan i think the russian experience from afghanistan we have to draw on that and we have to we have also learned to try to look into the lessons learned from russia being in afghanistan oh yeah well the americans also is the only country to opt out of use common security and defense policy why stop. all it comes back to the maastricht treaty and it was like well a lot of the danes they have a referendum a lot of danes they voted new. suit in march a sign maastricht treaty so to make sure that they could stay as member of the u. we had some of us and for instance one of the and the euro's another legal affairs is another and well i will say right now it creates some problems for me in
defense minister because in every. the e.u. countries would like to discuss security policy issues defense also issues i'm not allowed to raise my voice. which means that we'd have no influence on the u n d c on these issues and. i would like to get get get rid of the of the opt out but the political climate in denmark is not ready for that so it's so therefore i have to live with it you look at another angle in your opinion what kind of woman will bring to the table the scars global security has that amanda can't. i wouldn't maybe need a broader focus on how do we deal with security risks and what do we actually do i mean i think it's very important whenever we are deploying soldiers that we do not look at just me a charity with military ice i think it's important that we see it as
a whole and i'm very much became about the comprehensive approach so when we deploy troops we also have to look in a civil reconstruction in the development in the countries where we have to own soldiers because sometimes where we know that some wars they actually start out of poverty it starts out because people will they fight for clean water. we have to we have to take that into consideration so i think i can tell you more i can have a more equal or comprehensive human on how should we deal with the. different issues and i don't know whether it's because i've woman but i don't i feel that sometimes i have a broader view and things well you also have reading your interest in mentioning the holistic approach is this what you mean yes exactly except you explain your position yourself as a civilian minister is a military place but then when it comes down to security interests paris and our
defense minister will eventually have. choose one over the other break comes down to it which one do you protect first. that's difficult i wanted it to know. i know that i was appointed minister because i have civilian background and because i don't have a military background and my prime minister was very clear saying that well you have the chief of defense he is responsible for the military things and my prime minister was very clear you don't want a general choo-choo the minister because then there would be some conflict between the the chief minister so i'm actually asked my duty is to have this broader view on things and not be the one only talking about military tactics or who's supposed to be where and when it's all right thank you very much for this and three weeks.
