Merkel in Northern Avenue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNf9wlp_oDw

Angela Merkel says Azeri gas isn't a true alternative to the Russian gas because of its price. Says Germany will support the additional gas supplies from Russia. Azerbaijan considers itself as an alternative to Russian gas, but its expensive supplies are only planned to deliver 16bcm/year and are limited to few countries, compared to Russia's 240bcm across EU. Last year, US president Donald Trump negotiated a deal with several EU countries to supply them with American liquid gas (LNG), thus injecting US into EU's fuel competition. Trump is currently pressuring Germany and other EU nations to buy more US LNG, which is more expensive. Currently, it only delivers 0.5bcm/year across the ocean. This is directly related to the so called "trade war", and Trump's fight against EU tariffs against American products. http://www.armtimes.com/hy/article/142929 ----- other sources.
