Nord Stream 2 pipeline

France insists that the German government refuse the idea to continue the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. DW quoted French State Secretary for European Affairs Clément Beaune who made the statement on February 1.  

"We've always said that we have really strong doubts about this project in this context," Beaune said. He confirmed that Paris supports the idea to cease construction works.

At that, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung observer Reinhard Feser marked that French stance has once again shown that not only Eastern Europe stands for the idea to stop the works - such views may be found in Western Europe, too. According to the contributor, the German Cabinet did not support the French offer, and there's nothing surprising about it.

"Clinging to that project, Berlin has isolated itself in the EU," the German reporter said.

The German parliamentary opposition, however, urges the Cabinet to reconsider its view on the construction of Nord Stream II.
