Nord Stream 2 would not make Germany dependent on Russian Federation

Donald Trump saying Germany is totally controlled by Russia because they will be getting from 60 to 70% of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada has significant concerns over the Nord Stream 2 pipeline that would bring gas from Russian Federation to the Baltic coast of Germany.

"As for Germany's dependence (on Russia) as a major gas buyer we can not agree with this premise", Peskov told reporters on a conference call.

According to the politician, today the "Nord stream-2" is for Germany to tackle the same duties that the USA wants to put in order to equalize competition with European and American goods to the European and American market.

Russian Federation is keen to press ahead with the Nord Stream 2 pipeline since it has the potential to double its gas exports under the Baltic Sea to Germany, bypassing traditional routes through Ukraine with which it has poor relations.

This is not the first time Trump has bashed Germany over the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. So we're supposed to protect Germany, but they're getting their energy from Russian Federation.

History has shown that Russian Federation has a penchant for attempting to control Europe by cutting off energy supplies. It's going nearly stop exporting gas 10 years from now. There will be terminals built in Germany or there will be pipelines built from Belgian and Dutch terminals - that's also possible. "I do not think it's good, you do not work from a position of strength, you gave up all your power", Trump warned. On the contrary, it will become guarantor of stability, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, commenting on the statements made by President of the United States Donald Trump.

"But the strength of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is that despite these differences, we have always been able to unite around our core task, to protect and defend each other, because we understand that we are stronger together than apart", he said.

"As has been proven in the past, a trilateral process is the most effective platform to seek a satisfactory solution to the gas matters important for involved parties and to gas transit via Ukraine beyond 2019", Šefčovič said.
