Vienna has no intention of ditching Nord Stream 2 despite US pressure – Austrian president

Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen says Vienna has no plans to withdraw from the Russian-led Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project as the country’s energy giant, OMV, has made huge investments in the enterprise.
“Austria is not going to leave the Nord Stream 2 project, and Austrian oil and gas corporation OMV especially,” Van der Bellen said during a joint news conference after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin ahead of the Sochi Dialogue Forum.
