Merkel: Nord Stream 2 decision to be taken by EU

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Tuesday that any decisions regarding the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project would have to be made by the European Union, rather than by Germany alone. Merkel has been under pressure to stop the project partnership with Russia over the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny.

DPA reported Merkel as saying that "a final decision has not been made" but that "close coordination" with other EU member states is necessary. She added that the incident is not an attack on Germany itself and that it therefore does not warrant a unilateral reaction from Berlin.
