WARSAW (Reuters) - Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Tuesday that Poland and Lithuania consider the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project a threat to energy security in central and eastern Europe.
“Poland and Lithuania have a very similar stance saying that the construction of Nord Stream 2 is s threat to energy security in this part of Europe,” Morawiecki told a televised news conference with Lithuanian Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis.
The Nord Stream 2 project would double Russia’s capacity for piping gas across the Baltic Sea to Germany.
