Swedish Decision on Nordstream Close

The Swedish government will decide within two weeks whether to allow the Nord Stream gas pipeline through Swedish waters in the Baltic Sea, according to the news agency TT.

The government wants the decision ahead of the meeting between the EU and Russia on the 18th of November, the news agency writes.

Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt was called by the Russian president on Sunday, who warned that the Russian gas deliveries to Western Europe might be interrupted again, because - Putin is reported to have said - the Ukraine has problems with their payments to the Russian Gas giant Gazprom.

Denmark said yes to the gas pipeline a few weeks ago. The Finnish Government is expected to come with its decision this coming Thursday. After that, Gazprom is only waiting for the Sweidhs decision.
