Zelensky, Merkel to discuss Nord Stream 2

President Volodymyr Zelensky plans to discuss fulfillment of Germany's commitments in case Russia tries to abuse its monopoly position after the launch of Nord Stream 2 with German Chancellor Angela Merkel during her visit to Ukraine on August 22.

"Angela Merkel and Volodymyr Zelensky will discuss how specifically Germany will guarantee the fulfillment of the commitments it undertook in case Russia tries to abuse its monopoly position after the launch of Nord Stream 2," Press Secretary of the President of Ukraine Serhiy Nykyforov said at a briefing, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to him, the parties will also touch upon the issues related to security in eastern Ukraine. They will also talk about how to revive peace talks, develop bilateral relations, and raise other topical issues.

"Angela Merkel's visit proves the principle ‘nothing about Ukraine without Ukraine’, and that most important security issues in Europe cannot be resolved without direct talks with the President of Ukraine," the President’s spokesman said.

At the same time, he noted that the schedule of the Federal Chancellor of Germany had not yet been finalized.

“Of course, we invite Merkel to attend the Crimea Platform, to stay for August 23. It will be known in the near future whether she will stay. If she doesn't stay, I'm 99% sure that you will be able to ask her [about the reason] on August 22,” Nykyforov said.

As reported, German Chancellor Angela Merkel intends to pay a visit to Ukraine on August 22.
