Weber set to INFURIATE Merkel: Candidate to replace Juncker vows to block Russian pipeline

EUROPEAN Commission hopeful Manfred Weber has pledged to scupper plans for the controversial Russian gap pipeline Nord Stream 2 if he replaces Jean-Claude Juncker in the EU hot seat.

Mr Weber’s position will put him at loggerheads with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has shown support for the pipeline between Russia and Germany. The German MEP is keen to throwout his national hat because the 765-mile project, which deliberately bypasses Poland and Ukraine, is not in the European Union’s interest, he claims.
