The Sejm of the Republic of Poland at the next meeting (February 24-25) may adopt a resolution calling on the German government to stop the implementation of the Nord Stream 2 project. This was stated by the MPs of the Solidarity Poland party, which is part of the coalition, PAP reports.

During the meeting, representatives of the party noted that Nord Stream 2 is a project that is directed not only against Poland, but also against the entire European community.

"Therefore, it would be quite natural to adopt a relevant resolution during the next meeting - regardless of the political division - for the Sejm to express its strong protest against this anti-European project," Solidarity Poland party MP, Deputy Minister of Climate and Environment Jacek Ozdoba said.

According to him, the party on Friday submitted a petition to the head of the Sejm to expedite consideration of a resolution urging the German government to immediately stop the construction of Nord Stream 2.

As we reported earlier, two U.S. senators urged President Joe Biden to ensure the implementation of sanctions passed in January aimed at stopping the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project. 

Senators Jim Risch, a Republican, and Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat, urged the State Department not to delay issuing a report to Congress required under sanctions passed in the annual defense policy bill, which they said was due by February 16.

The report will identify companies involved in constructing, insuring and verifying Nord Stream 2. The law requires the sanctions to be imposed on the companies listed.
