Czech industry minister wants to discuss abolishing Germany's gas transit fee

EU member states should avoid unilateral measures that could increase gas prices for consumers, Czech Industry and Trade Minister Jozef Síkela said at a meeting in Brussels on Monday. He wants to discuss abolishing the fee that Germany charges other EU countries for gas transit through its territory. This idea is supported by neighbouring countries Poland, Austria, Hungary and Slovakia. Síkela expects to discuss the issue directly with German Economy Minister Robert Habeck.
