Merkel: EU, not Berlin to decide on Nord Stream 2




The Chancellor has yet to decide whether actions against Moscow in this regard will affect Nord Stream 2.





Russia's response to the incident with Alexey Navalny must be coordinated with European partners, it should not be only German, German Chancellor Angela Merkel believes. Bloomberg reports this with reference to an official from the Christian Democratic Union party.

“He noted that Merkel did not make a final decision on whether the reaction against Moscow (in connection with the incident with Navalny) Could affect Nord Stream 2,” the agency writes.

Merkel reportedly noted that this was not an attack on Germany, but Germany should also assert itself as an EU member state.

“However, one should also carefully listen to what the EU partners are saying, close coordination is necessary. The next step is for Russia. Then the EU must make a common decision,” Merkel said.

Recall that the German politician began to appear demands to revise participation in the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline after statements that Navalny was poisoned with a nerve agent from the Novichok group.

At the same time, the German Foreign Ministry said that Navalny's issue does not concern Nord Stream 2.
