Berlin supports the project stroitelstva «Nord stream-2», because it is based on market mechanisms, said foreign Minister of Germany Sigmar Gabriel in Washington.
«I support (the project «North stream 2 ed.). Why? Because a few years ago, by the way, on the advice of the Americans, we in Europe decided to liberalize the gas market, to withdraw it from the policy of state regulation, (leave) only the scope of European regulation», — quotes words of the head of the German foreign Ministry RIA Novosti.
Gabriel also added that the choice of energy supply sources should be a matter of the market, companies have to decide what part of the world they will get gas and oil.
