EPP top candidate, Weber wants to stop Nord Stream 2

The Federal government promotes the project, but ironically, the CSU politician Weber could be the blocker in the case of Nord Stream 2. He should be the President of the EU Commission, he wanted to prevent the Pipeline.

CSU politician Manfred Weber wants to use in the case of an election for the President of the EU Commission for a halt to construction of the controversial Nord Stream Baltic sea Pipeline 2. He was opposed to this project, which was not in the interest of the EU, because it will increase the dependence on Russian raw materials, said Weber of the Polish newspaper "Polska the Times". "As head of the EU Commission, I will apply all rules to block Nord Stream 2."

With his attitude Weber differs from that of the Federal government.

"Am not the German candidate for the EU Commission"

Weber at the end of may at the European elections as the top candidate of the conservative party family, the EPP, and could be followed by EU Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker has been in office. Its rejection of Nord Stream 2 differs from that of the Federal government, which is supporting the project.

"I'm not the German candidate for the EU Commission, but the candidate of the EPP. Europe - 28 countries," said Weber. When you think of Europe, you have to think of the independence from Russian Gas.
