The Heads Of The East German Lands Supported The Construction Of The Nord Stream 2

The heads of the East German lands at a conference in Berlin called for the continuation of the construction of the Nord Stream 2, the weekly Spiegel reported, citing its information.

"At the conference of Prime Ministers of the East German lands in Berlin, six heads of government from the SPD, CDU and the "Left" spoke in favor of continuing the construction of the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline," the newspaper reports.

It also cites an entry from the minutes of the meeting that the conference participants "discussed the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project across the Baltic sea,.. it is of great importance for Germany and many European countries in terms of ensuring energy supply in the future," so the participants "consider the completion of the Baltic pipeline to be reasonable and correct".

Spiegel reported that the General statement on Nord Stream 2 was not adopted at the conference as originally planned, due to critical statements by land associations of the Green party, which is part of five of the six coalition governments of the lands in East Germany.
