Russia, nor any other single power, must not be allowed to use energy supply as a “weapon”, energy secretary Ed Davey said at a meeting with his G7 counterparts yesterday.
The meeting was held to discuss enhancing energy security and reducing dependence on single energy powers.
“My discussions with my G7 colleagues have made it clear that we stand together in our resolve to strengthen our energy security and ensure no single power can use control of energy supplies as a weapon in the future,” said Davey.
“Every energy minister in the G7 is here, united in our plans for a long-term project to achieve strong, lasting energy security in our own countries and among our friends and allies. We all recognise that energy security and climate security are linked parts of the same challenge, with remarkably similar solutions, and requiring similar long term determined international cooperation.”
