WARSAW (Reuters) - U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry said on Friday that Nord Stream 2, a pipeline which will bring Russian gas directly to Germany under the Baltic Sea, was not a commercial project, but rather a political game.

At a news conference in Warsaw Perry also said that he believes nuclear power is a key component of energy security.
