GERMANY

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has been speaking in Athens alongside Greek PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis on a number of issues. On the continued debate over a cap on natural gas prices (Germany remains the main impediment) Scholz states that, "EU energy ministers still have much work to do, it is about avoiding speculative price spikes".

  • On Chinese shipping firm Cosco's controversial investment in the port of Hamburg states that the investment, "Only involves one terminal and is a minority stake, its a good solution. Germany will remain in control of the port of Hamburg".
