German Chancellor Angela Merkel will personally go to the U.S. to settle the arguments on the construction of Russian pipeline Nord Stream 2. 

According to Handelsblatt, Merkel is to visit the States in July or August. The German leader will negotiate with her US counterpart Joe Biden.  

Berlin already offered several ways to solve the arguments, which will become the basis of these negotiations between Biden and Merkel. These actions will concern Ukraine, too.

Germany could offer Ukraine to become the hydrogen exporter; the idea lies within the re-equipment of current gas pipeline network.

As is known, the United States of America plans to pass some new decisions regarding Nord Stream 2, the Russian gas pipeline. Ned Price, the spokesman of U.S. Department of the State said so at a briefing.

"We will keep on taking actions regarding individuals and companies that participate in actions befalling the sanctions in order to demonstrate our disagreement with this project that remains", the spokesman said.

According to Price, Nord Stream 2 is a poor deal for European partners.

The U.S. official also said that the White House would do everything not to let Russia "use energy as a tool of compulsion against Ukraine or any other country".
