don't come. the line from moscow our top stories a blow for nicolas sarkozy losing out to socialist candidate francoise yvonne's in the first round of the french presidential election and now going to a second ballot in a fortnight. israel war and its peace deal with egypt is in jeopardy after cairo scrapped a downside export deal with its neighbor. and syrian rebels refused downstroke foreign turn insisting military intervention is no solution three hundred unarmed un observers are being signed up oversee the cease fire. was a french braid and sacked the first round of sunday's presidential election we
6:31 am
talked to a member of the socialist party but not been won one gives his view on the second stage runoff and talks about the huge challenges the country faces. today we're joined by a good one he's been a member of the french socialist party since one nine hundred eighty seven he's also been a member of the european parliament from two thousand and four to two thousand and nine and today he's the spokes person of the socialist party that of french presidential candidate francois hollande thank you very much and someone for joining us today first question would be of course in the future of france there are two top candidates now the socialist francois alone and incumbent classic we'll see what kind of france are we going to see with the presidency. probably a front thirds much fairer a much more egalitarian than it is today a france win here today is significantly poorer than it was five years ago she's
6:32 am
probably lost her influence in the world with for example the failure of the union for the mediterranean she's lost much of her influence in europe and the best example of this is hell angela merkel and nicolas sarkozy have agreed on a draft european treaty which is very favorable to german interests and very unfavorable to the interests of the rest of europe. france is mostly very divided with heritage today the task for france well and will be to somehow repair rebuild and assemble the french to avoid opposition to one another this is why his political project is intended primarily to address inequality is. the question so you're talking about redefining or reestablishing france's a role of influence in europe and you bring up the treaty of does want to renegotiate the fiscal pact agreed upon by e.u. leaders but how much leverage does he we have he's going to go up against german
6:33 am
chancellor angela merkel and let's be frank what she wants you for the important role in decision making but from within his message is clear if the treaty is not really go see it it from us will not ratify it and therefore it cannot come into force if merkel wants to impose fiscal discipline in the euro zone area we will require a growth measure in the treaty where now there is no we want to make progress on euro bonds we want to expand the role of the european central bank there's no question for us that we would not accept a treaty that would result in austerity measures in france and europe at the same time most of our growth is related to trade with you if the french cannot by companies cannot invest because of a series of policies they are neighbors could not abide or invest either because they too practice austerity you we believe that merkel is prepared to hear it we're simply saying that the treaty cannot proceed only a little terms of germany's economy in fact this treaty does not benefit the
6:34 am
italian economy nor the spanish nor the french economy a great regret is that nicolas sarkozy has not defended the interests of the french economy or the economies of european countries sarkozy agreed to sign the treaty to appear a protector of europe and of the euro zone for simple public relations purposes he signed a treaty that weakens. because it focuses only on austerity chris you know who they were. talking about a steady are you against all types of belt tightening nationals do you not see any merit to where i'm speaking about growth measures after all hakim's bringing it up that doesn't really mean. we want a real industrial policy based on a new instrument in public finance a public investment. we will develop tools that allow us to compete with other european countries but also with countries outside the european union or new york that well let's talk about immigration and other presidential candidates such as
6:35 am
the national front. and even the glass keeping up the problem of immigration by using this as a campaign plight what is your view on immigration in france in general and in particular illegal immigration. because of the when you go quite honestly immigration being an economic and social problem is primarily a political problem in many european countries the issue is systematically used to say that immigration is a threat to their country. when they talk about immigration they usually mean arab african and muslim this is the way people approach the immigration question in a political debate in france and europe in front what the president of the public setting up with nothing but caricature. it will reach the point where a great number of anglo-saxon newspapers can no longer see the difference between what marine le pen and nicolas sarkozy sorry about islam and immigration. this is
6:36 am
a major setback for france to see that the president today finds inspiration in the program of france's far right. this is a very great step back of what we're saying is that we need to discuss the conditions of economic migration and the needs of different sectors of the french economy if we must add rules an economic integration and we will do so we don't want to make immigration issue used to divide and frighten the french this is a serious matter that must be treated as such and must be subject to political economic and social responses we should not be a subject used by nicolas sarkozy of all opinion to win votes and raise racism in france for five years the french reality is the rights of intolerance and violence is perhaps more racist now than it was five years ago yes there is discrimination in hiring yes there's discrimination in access to housing and yes there's discrimination in access to leisure it depends on whether you have a white face like moment when a white woman in a position like mine in
6:37 am
a socialist party or your name is good year of arab or north african origin or omar from well you put that you are saying that if they give a. talk about nato and francis participation in campaigns in various countries launder wants to withdraw more troops in afghanistan earlier than planned however he doesn't want to row with drop all our friends completely from nato. but. for regarding nato we want to evaluate the decisions made by nicolas sarkozy to rejoin the integrated military commander of nato we're not sure that our reintegration into the military command has had the expected results above all what we regret is that there has been no strong initiative of france in favor of a genuine european defense system for five years we do not believe today that european defense and protection of the broader strategic interests of europe and the european union can be supported only by nato we consider it necessary to
6:38 am
develop autonomous structures that's why we insist on developing a european defense we will evaluate the benefits and drawbacks involved with a return to the integrated military command of nato and as you said in connection with our allies so as not to destabilize nato in afghanistan we will withdraw our troops from afghanistan before the end of twenty twelve. ok you want to reassess their francis and fast or large ones cooperation of the european air defense system however pulling out troops in afghanistan earlier than planned wouldn't that solve our relationships with britain or germany for example who are investing a lot in that effort. now in our analysis is that our military intervention is not able to add a value that allows a peaceful solution to the crisis of the conflict in afghanistan why are military intervention there we lost the ability to act on political and diplomatic levels we
6:39 am
want to regain freedom in our room to maneuver politically and diplomatically in order to find a solution together with major regional players in a conflict that requires to first withdraw our troops from afghanistan would we believe that a military solution is doomed to deadlock or. we do not believe that the solution to the conflict in afghanistan who requires a military only approach otherwise we would have solved the conflict already synchronized attacks by the taliban in many parts of afghanistan so there is no longer any area in afghanistan today that is truly protected surely must find ways to influence the immediate neighbors of afghanistan the larger regional players in order to find a political solution to the afghan conflict a military operation must one day come to an end and we think it is now the time for that. with. talking about political solutions does that apply
6:40 am
as well in syria for example. you know throwing syria is on the edge of civil war or a proof is that despite the annan plan there are still dozens and dozens of deaths hundreds of deaths i want to come to talk about the role of russia in this matter by its place in the security council and through its role in complaining the syrian regime russia was in a key positions of unlocked and syrian situation and to avoid a bloodbath and civil war both at levels of bilateral franco russian relations and on the level of the e.u. russia relationship we want to repeal intense association with russia we also want to roll on the international scene to contribute to stability. we can understand the historical relations of the russian state with the syrian state but today with russia is a destabilizing factor in his country but also the whole region we must respond in a concerted and coordinated way between russia the european union france and
6:41 am
permanent members of the security council can a military intervention go through nato in syria at this point it seems premature and this is why the plan by kofi annan opened the possibility of a political solution with the involvement of observers in fact considering the number of observers who will go there and the difficulty in verifying whether or not atrocities are committed against civilians should be a strong force in place to ensure that observers really do observe what happens with. france very big. intervention. in libya we played two different worlds at one point nicolas sarkozy wanted to sell nuclear powerplants to gadhafi then he bombed gadhafi when you're a friend of nicolas sarkozy always be wary. it shows the completely incoherent nature of nicolas sarkozy's foreign policy i think the intervention in libya was
6:42 am
a necessary because gadhafi used his own forces and bombs against his own people but that doesn't mean that the situation is now stabilized we observe the movement of weapons into so held region is linked to the consequences of the conflict in libya this helps to arm groups like. that's al qaeda in islamic magreb or some of the events in mali related to what happened in libya therefore we need stabilization policies growth and development here to france's intervene to help end the gadhafi regime but the french development aid to developing countries fell from point seven percent to north point four percent of our g.d.p. so we give weapons but we don't help the development growth and job creation and as we know if there are weapons or no jobs there will be no more instability. ambition is to focus on stabilizing the margaret and north africa region because it's a hotbed of potential unrest in europe and beyond including much of the african
