DOHA -- Moscow will continue supplying gas to Europe and will not weaponize energy exports, Russia's energy minister said Tuesday, while Germany said it would not certify the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline that connects the two countries.

"Russian companies will continue [their] gas contracts to countries including Turkey and Germany," Nikolay Shulginov told a forum in Doha, saying he was speaking on behalf of President Vladimir Putin. "Russia will continue to provide gas to all members of the international community."
