Bloomberg called the refusal of Germany from the “Nord Stream 2” inevitable




With the arrival of the new government, Germany will abandon the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, according to a Bloomberg journalist.

In his opinion, after some time, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and US President Joe Biden will have an “unpleasant conversation” — about Russia and the highway under construction. As pointed out by the journalist, Washington, and Berlin, there is disagreement about the pipeline. Germany regards Nord Stream 2 as a commercial project that will provide cheap Russian gas for the country's transition from coal and nuclear energy to renewable sources.

Washington sees it as a geopolitical initiative.

“Therefore, tensions between the United States and Germany, nominally America's closest ally, continue to escalate,” the author writes.

From his point of view, Merkel “holds on” to the project only in order to preserve the fragile peace in her coalition with the Social Democrats. Nord Stream 2 also allows her to have a trump card in negotiations with Biden.

At the same time, the chancellor is aware that federal elections will be held in Germany in September, the journalist writes. Merkel will leave, and the CDU is expected to remain in power, but this time in partnership with the Greens, who are bitterly opposed to Nord Stream 2.
