President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky stated he intended to discuss the construction of Nord Stream II pipeline with U.S. President Donald Trump during the working visit to America as 112 Ukraine reported.
“What can we do? By the way, about President Duda (Polish President Andrzej Duda, - 112.international), I have an official meeting with him in September; we will raise this issue. But what really works or will really work?!... Because I think that Mrs. Merkel and Mr. Macron will not influence the continuation of the construction of Nord Stream. Because their local business strongly influences them; they can do nothing,” Zelensky said.
The Ukrainian leader added that Trump is the only person who can help Ukraine deal with the issue of Nord Stream 2 construction.
“Because the only solution of this issue; I will have a meeting in the U.S. with the president. It is the only person, who, I am sure, will solve the issue in favor of Ukraine,” Zelensky stated.
The date of the meeting of President Zelensky and American leader Donald Trump is not agreed yet.
As it was reported earlier, Nord Stream II pipeline will run straight through the Baltic Sea, delivering Russian natural gas directly to Germany. For once, U.S. Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. agreed that the project is a really bad idea.
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 II gas pipeline.
On June 20, Russian Gazprom stated that 59% of the gas pipeline Nord Stream II is ready.
