“The concern on the part of Ukraine that she will cease to be a transit country in the future, I think it’s unfounded worries”, he said at the briefing with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in Kyiv on Tuesday, may 29.
“You asked about Nord stream-2. You don’t have to accuse us, even if we’re talking about the Northern stream, we are also speaking about the future and security of Ukraine. You saw that in Germany there are efforts to ensure natural gas transit through Ukraine. For this to happen the negotiations. They occur not only with Ukraine and Germany, but also with the EU”, – said Steinmeier.
He noted that these negotiations should soon bring results.
