  • Mr Donald Trump lashes Germany over Nord Stream 2gas pipeline deal

US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Diplomacy Sandra Oudkirk told Bloomberg that the US is also anxious the pipeline could open ways for Russian Federation to install undersea surveillance equipment in the Baltic Sea.

The total project cost of the Nord Stream 2 is estimated at €9.9 bln.

We agreed that this is of strategic importance for the energy security of Europe, but also for the continuation of reforms in Ukraine and for the economic development of the country that has experienced many trials in these last years, Sefcovic continued.

Russian Federation has obtained construction permits for Nord Stream 2 from Germany, Finland and Sweden, as the pipeline will pass through their maritime exclusive economic zones.

While talking to reporters ahead of a meeting with the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation secretary general in Brussels, he particularly bashed Germany, calling it "a captive of Russian Federation".

But Perry said America supports open competition and looked forward to Monday's much-anticipated summit between Trump and Russia's President Vladimir Putin.

In May 2016, Kerry was speaking in Washington, D.C. together with Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and European Union High Representative Federica Mogherini, where he expressed concerns about the very same energy project Germany is undergoing.

This sensitive matter [on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline] has been discussed in the European Union for some time.

Denmark, Finland and Sweden are on the long underwater pipeline route that would double the amount of Russian gas Germany receives.

Pointing to conflict between Russian Federation and Georgia a decade ago, which threatened the 1,099-mile Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, Healy Baumgardner, a global fossil fuel adviser and the former press secretary for the Energy Department under President George W. Bush, told UPI it's naïve to try to decouple energy from political issues.

Several eastern European countries oppose the pipeline, saying it would give the Kremlin greater sway over the energy needs of the entire continent. "The two-week shutdown allows us to maintain our highest standards", Nord Stream AG's Managing Director Alexey Zaytsev pointed out.

"I'm very happy today that we are united in freedom as the Federal Republic of Germany, and can thus say that we can determine our own policies and make our own decisions - and that's very good".
