Germany says pipeline, criticised by Trump, is a commercial project


July 16, 2018

BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany said on Monday that the Nord Stream 2 Baltic Sea pipeline to import more Russian gas was a commercial project, resisting U.S. President Donald Trump’s characterisation of the venture as “inappropriate”.

“Nord Stream 2 is first and foremost a commercial project,” government spokesman Steffen Seibert told a regular government news conference in Berlin, adding that Germany wanted Ukraine to remain a transit route for gas imports from Russia.

Last week, Trump accused Germany of being a “captive” of Russia due to its energy reliance.
