Merkel visits White House in swan song
Chancellor Angela Merkel visits the White House in her diplomatic swan song Thursday, underlining how important the veteran German leader has been to the transatlantic relationship, but also highlighting the unanswered questions she leaves behind. The White House insists this is "very much a working visit," rather than a ceremonial farewell for the woman widely seen as Europe's steadiest leader during almost 16 years at the helm of the continent's biggest economy. She and Biden will discuss climate change, Covid-19 vaccine distribution, and the future of Afghanistan now that US, German and other foreign troops are leaving.
US President Joe Biden and Chancellor Angela Merkel had not bridged their differences to the billions-heavy project at their meetings last week. The pipeline is to transport more Russian gas to Western Europe. The US is a threat to Europe, the Federal Government, on the other hand, rejects warnings before a great energy dependency of Russia. The boss of Nord Stream 2 AG, Matthias Warnig, has declared that the project should be ready at the end of August. The aim is to take the management in operation again this year. Ukraine then fears disadvantages as previous transit land for Russian natural gas.
