Germany will not make a decision on Nord Stream 2 in the first half of 2022.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz commented the suspension of the certification of & # 8220; Nord Stream 2 & # 8221;.
According to him, such a decision by the authorities of the FRG is apolitical.
Scholz pointed out that the pipeline & # 8211; This is a commercial project implemented with the attraction of private investment, and the decision on this in Germany was not taken on the basis of the political, writes TASS.
As the Chancellor pointed out, such a procedure involves a large number of consultations, and the process is still ongoing, TASS writes.
Additionally, Bloomberg, citing the Federal Network Agency of Germany, writes that in the first half of 2022 no decision is expected on the certification of & # 39; 8220; SP-2 & # 8221 ;.
The head of the agency, Jochen Hommann, stressed that the regulator still does not have the necessary documents from the operator.
& # 8220; It's not in our hands & # 8221;, & # 8211; did he declare.
According to Homman, the certification process, suspended in November, could resume once requirements are met.
So we are talking about the establishment of a separate company by the operator, which will manage a section of the gas pipeline in Germany.
In this context, the Permanent Representative of Russia to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov, discussed the situation with the suspension of the certification of the politicized pipeline.
German internal policy linked to the change of government.
Remember that certification was suspended on November 16. According to the plan, this process should be completed on January 8, 2022, but as a result, these deadlines have been postponed indefinitely.
Earlier, TopNews wrote that Germany declared the inability to approve Nord Stream 2. The Polish Prime Minister has promised to prevent the pipeline from starting.
