This week on Studio Berlin, we’re talking about the controversy surrounding the Nord Stream 2 pipeline: why some countries are against it and why Germany stands by it. President Trump has called the project a “horrible thing” and the U.S. Congress is taking steps that could lead to sanctions against companies involved in the project.

Host Erik Kirschbaum takes a closer look with American lawyer and political advisor Andrew Adair and Till Bullmann, energy expert at DIHK (Association of German Chambers of Industry and Commerce).
