Local German politician admits "mistake" on Nord Stream 2

The premier of Germany's Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania state, where Russia's Nord Stream 2 makes landfall, has admitted that supporting the pipeline was a "mistake" in an interview with German newspaper Zeit on June 8.

"We and I thought that a dialogue [with Russia] could change things for the better," Manuela Schweig said. "In this case, unfortunately that was a mistake."


The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.

She said she was now critical of her long commitment to the project, and the establishment to support the pipeline's completion after it was targeted by US sanctions.

"Knowing what I know now, I wouldn't make that decision anymore," Schweig said.
