But Berlin declared the need to continue “confidential negotiations” with the United States on energy security.
The Cabinet of Ministers of the Federal Republic of Germany sees no obstacles to the work of Nord Stream 2, he announced this in response to a request from the Alternative for Germany party.
As stated in the document (quoted by RIA Novosti), the federal government “rejects extraterritorial sanctions, such as those threatened and imposed by the United States in connection with Nord Stream 2.” But to prevent further pressure from the United States, negotiations were held with the American side, which resulted in the adoption of a joint statement by the United States and Germany “In support of Ukraine, European energy security and our climate goals.” And, accordingly, all questions, summed up in Berlin, regarding the operation of the main gas pipeline have been removed.
Nevertheless, “confidential negotiations” will continue, the FRG government noted, since the United States and Germany are close partners in the field of foreign policy and security.
The construction of Nord Stream 2, a 1200-kilometer pipe of which runs along the bottom of the Baltic Sea from Ust-Luga in the Leningrad Region to Greifswald, has been completed. Two lines of the gas pipeline are capable of pumping 55 billion cubic meters of fuel per year. On October 4, filling with gas of the first of them began.
