"I've been against North Stream 2 all along. I believe that we should not become dependent on Russian gas. It would be nice if we could start a new discussion on this issue," Frederiksen said.

"In the current situation, in my opinion, there is no reason to make us dependent on Russian gas. I think it's good if our southern neighbor resumes the discussion after what happened," said Mette Frederiksen.
