German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called on Thursday for the construction of a pipeline from Portugal via Spain and France to central Europe in order to wean Europe off its reliance on Russian energy.

“Such a pipeline would massively relieve the supply situation now,” Scholz said at a news conference in Berlin.

He stated that he discussed the topic with the governments of Spain, Portugal, France, and the European Commission in Brussels and advocated hard for the establishment of such a project.
