France says it won’t meddle in German choices over Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline

The questions to the government session at the National Assembly in Paris

PARIS (Reuters) – France will not pressure Germany over its choices regarding the Nordstream gas project, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Wednesday.

When asked whether Paris was putting pressure on Berlin to scrap the project after Russia jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, Le Drian said Nordstream related to the issue of energy independence and subjects should not be mixed up.
