This would also cause 'huge damage to the global economy, ' he said.

During a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Saturday, the chancellor stressed that Nord Stream 2 "will be implemented no matter what" and vowed to continue her support for the project.

Earlier this week Turkey and Russian Federation urged Libya's warring parties to declare a ceasefire on Sunday.

German Chancellor and Russian President met in Moscow on Saturday, TASS reported.

Putin called the initiative "timely" and a 'very good step in the right direction'.

"It is necessary to ensure that the participating countries are really interested in initiating a peaceful settlement of the conflict", the president said. "All this undermines security not only in the region itself, but it also has a negative impact on Europe; I mean illegal immigration, smuggling, the spread of weapons and drugs", he added.

In reaction to the United States withdrawal and also in response to Europe's sluggishness in facilitating Iran's banking transactions and its oil exports, Tehran has made stage-by-stage moves away from its nuclear commitments since last May. "And as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, it is also indispensable in terms of solving political conflicts", Seibert said.

Merkel said Russian Federation and Germany were "united" on the importance of preserving an global deal to limit Iran's nuclear ambitions, despite the USA exit under the Trump administration from the 2015 six-nation brokered agreement. They also discussed some worldwide matters including the developments in the Persian Gulf region and in Libya. Putin said he supports Germany's proposal for a conference on resolving the Libyan crisis.

"Above all, its decisions should be negotiated in a preliminary plan with the Libyan parties", he added.

All the way through the talks, PM Modi prolonged the season's greetings to President Putin and the folks of Russian Federation. He said that if any Russians are there, they do not represent the government.

Merkel and Putin met last month in Paris as part of efforts to forge a renewed cease-fire for war-torn eastern Ukraine, where Russian Federation backs separatists fighting Ukrainian government forces.

Merkel has strongly opposed USA attempts to derail the construction of the pipeline, arguing that it will be beneficial for both Germany and the EU.
