U.S. President Donald Trump considers the possibility of imposing sanctions due to the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline as Reuters reported.
“President of the U.S. Donald Trumps stated he is considering sanctions over Russia’s Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline project and warned Germany against being dependent on Russia for the fuel”, the message said.
Earlier it was reported that the U.S. Administration plans to impose sanctions against Nord Stream 2 project.
As it was reported earlier, German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated that the European Commission would not be able to block the construction of Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
Ukraine is adamantly opposed to the construction by calling it politically motivated and suggesting the EU to create a consortium with the involvement of European companies to manage the existing more efficient transportation route through Ukraine. A number of EU countries have expressed their disagreement with the Nord Stream 2 project in particular Poland and Lithuania.
