French President Emmanuel Macron is afraid of increasing gas dependence in Europe, which is why he doubts the “Nord stream-2” project. Free News reported with reference to Reuters.
“I don’t think the approach we should have with Russia should be naive, and I don’t think it should be fueled by increasing our dependence on Russia. This has always fueled my doubts about the “Nord stream-2″ project. The German Chancellor (Angela Merkel) is aware of this,” Macron said.
Recall that the German defense Minister and Chairman of the ruling Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, on Wednesday, July 22, said that the threat of sanctions from the United States against participants in the construction of the “Nord stream-2” gas pipeline is “incompatible with international law”.
