“I know that there are countries that want Austria to abandon Nord Stream 2 altogether.

This will not happen on my part and on the part of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, because we, as a state, have invested a lot (in the gas pipeline. -


) through the (Austrian oil and gas company) OMV, ”Schramböck said in an interview with ORF 2.

She called on the states to comply with international law in the matter of launching the gas pipeline.
