Berlin rejects US sanctions against Nord Stream 2

In Germany, they said they reject new US sanctions against Nord Stream-2. This was announced at a briefing by a representative of the German Ministry of Economy.

The representative of the German department noted that Berlin is closely monitoring the situation that is developing around the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

“We are not commenting on this. Our principled position regarding extraterritorial sanctions is also clear. We reject them, ”she emphasized.

Earlier it was reported that the US Senate intends to expand sanctions against the pipeline. The document proposes measures that should completely stop work on the project. For example, it is planned to introduce measures that will affect insurance companies serving the pipes working in the construction of the gas pipeline.
