Blinken discusses 'threat' from Nord Stream 2 with Polish foreign minister

“The Secretary of State discussed our cooperation with Poland to address the threat posed by the Nord Stream 2″ pipeline to European energy security”, –  the State Department said in a statement.

“Nord Stream 2” involves the construction of two strands of the pipeline with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic metres of gas per year from the Russian coast through the Baltic Sea to Germany. Washington actively opposes the completion of the project because it wants to supply its own liquefied gas to European countries. In addition, Ukraine perceives Nord Stream 2 as a “weapon” against Kiev.

Moscow has repeatedly urged against politicising the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, as this commercial project benefits not only Russia but the entire European Union. Germany is strongly in favour of completing the pipeline and rejects unilateral extraterritorial US sanctions.
