Germany: Greens demand Nord Stream 2 pipeline construction be halted

The Green Party in Germany demanded authorities find a way to halt the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline system, which would bring Russian gas to Germany, during a press conference in Berlin on Tuesday. Political pressure on Chancellor Merkel has been growing after Berlin announced Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was poisoned. «I do not think we should pursue this, but rather look for ways to not continue with this construction,» said Katrin Goring-Eckardt, co-chair of the Greens in the Parliament, citing the climate and a dependency on Putin as reasons to stop the natural gas pipeline project. Goring-Eckardt also asked the federal government not only to impose sanctions «against oligarchs», but also to enforce them.
