German State's Premier Urges to Finalise Nord Stream 2 Amid Calls to Abandon Pipeline

The head of Saxony, Michael Kretschmer, referred to fellow CDU member Friedrich Merz's calls to freeze the promising joint Russian-German Nord Stream 2 venture for at least two years as an erroneous move.

Premier of the eastern German state of Saxony Michael Kretschmer has stressed the necessity of completing the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. His Christian Democratic Union colleague and chairman candiate, Friedrich Merz, earlier called to halt the venture, something Kretschmer dubbed "a mistake".

"Nord Stream 2 must be completed. We depend on each other, we need this cooperation", the politician was quoted by DPA as saying.
