former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder gave the economic Committee of the Bundestag on Wednesday, significantly more attention than usual. It was schröder's prominence, his controversial role as the "Kremlin Lobbyist", but also to what he said: the Only one among the experts he spoke out clearly to provide an answer to the American sanctions against the Baltic sea pipeline Nord Stream 2 with counter-sanctions.
Schröder easy for you. He bears no political responsibility, and he is Chairman of the Board at Nord Stream 2.
All other professionals, members of Parliament and members of government have struggled with the question of how Germany and Europe on the threat from Washington should respond, by the way, not the White house but the Congress. It was helpless to the fact that Europe must speak with one voice.
This will hardly happen, since Nord Stream 2 in the EU is highly controversial. Yes, America is going too far, get away with it but, because Europe is weak and divided. The realization is as painful as true: The Strong make the rules, the EU is one of them.Date Of Update: 01 July 2020, 12:21
