Berlin must stop Nord Stream 2 pipeline if Russia attacks Ukraine

(Belga) Germany will have to prevent the controversial Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from coming into operation if Russia attacks Ukraine, US foreign minister Antony Blinken said on Wednesday alongside his German counterpart Annalena Baerbock.

“If Russia renews its aggression against Ukraine, it would certainly be difficult to see gas flow into it in the future,” he said at a joint press conference in Washington. He considered that Nord Stream 2, considered as a potential means of pressure of the Russians with regard to Europe, thus becomes “a lever” for Europe against the Russians. (Belga)
