Biden: Nothing can stop Nord Stream 2

Nord Stream 2 was built at 99 percent, it is no longer possible to stop the implementation of this project. This was stated by US President Joe Biden, adding that Germany “made a commitment”, if necessary, to respond to Russia’s actions

A day earlier, the American leader discussed the JV pipeline -2 “with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Biden called the conversation very fruitful.

Later, the German Foreign Ministry published the text of a deal with the United States concerning the implementation of the project. Washington has reserved the right to take certain measures if Moscow uses energy as a geopolitical weapon. Berlin, in turn, will also have to take “quick action” at the national level and “insist on effective measures at the EU level.”

Back in May 2021, the head of the White House said that it was unproductive to impose sanctions on Moscow , since the construction of the gas pipeline is almost completed.

Let us remind you that Nord Stream 2 is two pipes laid along the bottom of the Baltic Sea from the coast of the Russian Federation to Germany. Moscow has repeatedly stressed that the gas pipeline is a purely commercial project, which is being implemented jointly with European partners.

And Washington’s attempts to interfere with construction are an example of unfair competition, said Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov. The Americans have their own interest – they want to supply more liquefied natural gas to Europe.
