Germany will not become dependent on Russian Federation for gas due to Russia's Nord Stream 2 pipeline, Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday, stressing that it was crucial to ensure Ukraine remained a transit country for gas.
The EU executive wants a say over how Nord Stream 2 is used before its construction, which involves European companies, is completed. It is believed that the amendments in question mainly target Nord Stream 2, funded by the Russian gas supplier Gazprom.
France had earlier chose to support amendments to the Gas Directive that would give the European Commission more powers over the Russian-European Nord Stream 2 pipeline, while Germany continued to oppose the move.
That will mean charging market prices for gas, rather than Gazprom making its own agreements, and will likely make running the pipeline more expensive in general, said Gustav Gressel, a senior policy fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations think-tank in Berlin.
