The Foreign Minister of Germany has criticized a position of the USA on "Nord Stream-2" — Rambler News Service


Photo: Kay Nietfeld/globallookpress.com the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Germany Heiko Maas called unacceptable possible introduction of the USA of sanctions against the Nord Stream-2 project. "To use sanctions to influence power policy of Europe — it is just unacceptable" — the Boerse.de portal with reference to dpa cites Maas's words. According to the German diplomat if the USA wants to sell to Europe more liquefied natural gas (LNG), then they have to expand the supply channels. "But the decision on purchases has to be made, proceeding from cost, but not coercion by sanctions" — Maas has emphasized. "Nord Stream-2" — the gas pipeline from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea 1220 km long and 55 billion cubic meters in a year. Laying of pipes for "Nord Stream — 2" in the Baltic Sea has begun in July, 2018. It is expected that construction of the gas pipeline will come to the end at the end of 2019. Earlier the The Wall Street Journal edition has reported that the USA has a package of sanctions which Washington can use within several weeks. Before the USA urged to refuse Germany the project, and the president Donald Trump has said that Russia completely controls Germany through gas supply. Later the head of the Social Democratic Party of Germany Andreja Nahles has said that the country won't refuse arrangements in the power sphere because of a position of the USA.
