Sputnik reported that the European Parliament has voted for a resolution condemning the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline as a threat to European energy security and urging to cancel the project. Since the resolution was non-binding, EU states can safely ignore its provisions. Berlin's stance on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project remains unchanged following the EU parliament's resolution, which was adopted on 13 December, a German government official told. The official stressed that the pipeline is an economy-based project, although admitted that it has a political dimension.

The official said that "The German position remains unchanged. Nord Stream 2 is first of all an economic project, which the German government has repeatedly stressed. But there is a political aspect to the project as well."

Additionally, Berlin underscored the importance of clarity on the issue of Ukraine remaining a gas transit county after 2019, when the Nord Stream 2 pipeline goes live.
