Naftogaz Ukrainy has welcomed German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s recent statement on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

“Good news from Berlin,” the company posted on Facebook on Wednesday.

Talking at a joint briefing with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Tuesday, Merkel said the pipeline would not be possible without clarifying the future transit role of Ukraine.

Merkel discussed the project with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday and stated the importance of preserving Ukraine’s role as a transit country.
