Berlin says progress in talks with US on Nord Stream 2

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas believes progress has been made in talks with the US on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

“A lot of preliminary work has been done in recent weeks, and I believe our positions have converged on many points”, –  the DPA news agency quoted the minister as saying.

Maas did not specify whether a breakthrough could be expected from German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s meeting with US President Joe Biden.

“The important thing is that we have a goal in front of us and I am also confident that we will achieve it”, –  he said.

The minister also did not give a specific timeline.

“But, of course, it would be great if it happened during the Chancellor’s visit to Washington”, – he was quoted by DPA as saying.
