Co-chairman of the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) Norbert Walter-Borjans has supported the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. This was discussed in an interview with Passauer Neue Zeitung, published on Saturday, May 22, Deutsche welle reports.

“The biggest nonsense would be to build the ruins of a pipeline over 1000 kilometers long. It would be a signal that long-term planning cannot be relied on for future projects,” Walter-Borjans said.

According to him, large-scale industrial transformations are taking place in Germany now: the abandonment of nuclear energy and coal. During the transition period, the country cannot deprive itself of gas. The SPD leader considers Nord Stream 2 an important investment at this time.

On May 21, the United States announced sanctions against some companies and a number of vessels involved in the construction of the pipeline. But Nord Stream 2 AG was not blacklisted. A few days ago, the administration of US President Joe Biden imposed and immediately suspended sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 AG and its CEO Matthias Warnig. Washington explained its position by "national interests."
