It's attractive from an industrial point of view monitoring the pretty do viewpoint which would talk but it is also risky because they offered to. You know our system is basically companies that attitude to me the main activities when these energy. Power turbines there. And the other is making the trains. Siemens which does the same equipment German side office two bodies of energy cost which -- those who would -- you was interested in exchange for the trains. And and -- says any change. We can view our. Train division. And customers in the past because of course the transition much more of these that the entity manages about 70% -- -- But the risk is that within Europe it creates a monopoly for a the beginning of the making of -- -- -- -- Chris big question mark his. How we -- authorities react to this an infection risk to the problem is -- which wasn't too Agee. Offer because she's just hope there's just enough to train and do it without some -- -- and do whatever it wants with it. So.

And now we want to build the the Arab the -- -- of energy and then -- construction. But. Press Iran doesn't have -- in each area semi stopped to shareholders and those it considers itself at stake holder. That's no doubt it will have a big say. But the outs on board ultimately will decide the course it's -- much more. Two with a higher visibility. Deals than what was the -- Telecom -- and unity cabinet saying -- the French government also supported. One of the payers. Indeed ultimately lost. Which shows that inference you can still do ideas against the government's win in this case. They have mated to to have made Johnson -- symbol. There's a little bit of national security involved because of the nuclear power plant components that the French government is customer off. And so it's hard to house but my. Money would be on its -- -- -- it's. All right thank you very much up can't -- home from breaking these that talking about life demons -- -- proposal is attractive but risky. I'm managing all of this is voices.
