Pres spox says Russia wants N Stream-2 out of politics

MOSCOW, Sep 16 (PRIME) -- The Kremlin sees it necessary to stop mentioning the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline project in the context of any political issues, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.

"Concerning the mentions of the pipeline, it is perhaps better to stop mentioning it in any political context. This is a commercial project which absolutely fits the interests of the Russian Federation and the E.U., firstly, Germany," Peskov said.

The Nord Stream-2 project envisages construction of two lines of a natural gas pipeline with an annual capacity of up to 55 billion cubic meters, running from the Russian shore to Germany under the Baltic Sea. Russian gas giant Gazprom is implementing the project together with Germany’s E.ON and BASF, Royal Dutch Shell, OMV, and France’s Engie. The length of the pipeline’s route exceeds 1,200 kilometers.

U.S. President Donald Trump said last week that he will support suspension of Nord Stream-2 due to an incident with opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
