Duda: Nord Stream-2 threatens European security

The Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline has nothing to do with economics, contradicts the European legislation and threatens the energy security of Poland, Ukraine, Slovakia and other countries.

Polish President Andrzej Duda said this at a joint briefing in Brussels with President of the European Council Donald Tusk, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We have to ask a basic question: what is the purpose of this investment? The answer is the following, we [representatives of Poland] believe that it not only has a political ground, but also contradicts the European legislation, it undermines the EU energy solidarity and threatens not only the energy security of Poland, but also Ukraine, Slovakia and other countries,” Duda said.

According to him, this investment has nothing to do with economics as Russia has started to use already existing ways of supplying gas to Europe from Russia.

The Polish president also stressed that Warsaw would do everything possible at a meeting of the Council of Europe to present and uphold the real arguments on this issue. Duda also expressed hope that the European solidarity would win over the interests of some interested sides.
