Europe Apprehensive About Liz Truss, New UK Prime Minister | Europe In :60 | GZERO Media

Carl Bildt, former prime minister of Sweden, shares his perspective on European politics from Riga, Latvia.

What's the European attitude to Liz Truss as the new prime minister of the United Kingdom?

Well, welcome to her. It has to be said that I think the jury's still out. There are sort of some apprehensions because she's dug herself down into some pretty unconstructive positions concerning the UK relationship with the EU. I hope she can get out of that because we do need a better relationship between the EU and the UK.

How is Europe looking forward to the winter now when Russia is unreliable when it comes to gas supplies?

But it doesn't really come as a surprise that Putin now definitely cutting all or virtually all gas deliveries to Europe. It's going to be slightly tricky, manageable, I would say. But it's going to speed up the process of making Europe completely independent, of the EU, completely independent upon the gas and oil from Russia.
