6:08 pm
the european commissioner for the security union surgery and thanks for being with us today actually interview we just heard gabrielle there calling for a loosening of foreign policy ties with the united states not just for germany but also for the e.u. what's your reaction to that you were at the forum where he made this announcement or this speech traditionally european security has been quite closely aligned with washington the second change where he spoke quite powerfully about the role that the e.u. can play in the world and it's true the is growing faster than the u.s. or japan or latin america at the moment do you mean population wise know the economy and he spoke about the role there for the e play as a poll for the stability and we see that at the moment people are coming knocking on the door in brussels for the trade deals. people are coming to talk to brussels about climate change in the lead that we've been giving on climate change including of course representatives of various states and cities across across the us but he
6:09 pm
also underlined the need for europe to be willing to step up and play a security role in the future and therefore i think it's very welcome that we've taken some decisions to build the capabilities that would be needed for europe to play that role in security and on defense what do you mean specifically what could well we've we've just taken some decisions the twenty three of the of the member states of undertaken commitment. it's to build capabilities in the defense field and we've come full military special military capabilities and we've come forward with some plans for funding that and helping the member states to build those capabilities both research and procurement in something called the european defense fund which is starting small thought is going to mobilize some serious money after twenty twenty and those are the practical steps that i think he was pointing to. at the same time terror attacks are a very real threat in many parts of the world including in europe and it's been just a year since the christmas market truck attack in berlin can european commission
6:10 pm
security union really do anything to reduce the threat of terror attacks reduce the threat yes completely eliminate the threat to live a zero risk no i think that's a misleading ject to put out there but what we've done them in brussels in the commission is come for with a serious proposals to help the member states who are in the front line in dealing with these threats whether it's terrorism or indeed cyber threats so we've we've worked for the member states to squeeze the space the terrorists have and deny them the means that they use we strengthen controls on firearms we've strengthened controls on explosives we've come forward some proposals for strengthening public spaces where people gather the targets of some of these attacks and we're working with the big online platforms to try and spot and take down the kind of radicalizing propaganda that in particular so-called islamic state of been using to try and radicalize vulnerable young people across our countries what about intelligence sharing because that's something that's been criticized in the past on
