Lower Saxony's Interior Minister Boris Pistorius is preparing for an increased risk following the alleged attacks on the gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea. "We have to adapt to scenarios in which we are dealing with new players, but possibly also with new goals. It's not just about gas pipelines in the Baltic Sea, but also about natural gas storage facilities or new liquid gas terminals, which are currently in Lower Saxony and Schleswig -Holstein can be realized", said the SPD politician of the "Süddeutsche Zeitung".
"We prepare for all security scenarios, with all security authorities through to maritime forces. We do everything we can to always be ahead of the situation," explained Pistorius. That gives a certain guarantee, but not absolute security.
