“President Biden will have the opportunity to meet with Chancellor Merkel and discuss our close relationship with Germany. In any relationship as important and valuable as this, there are points of disagreement. And this (“Nord stream”) is one of them,” Free News quoted Price as saying at a press conference.
The United States administration will continue to take restrictive measures against individuals and companies involved in the construction of the “Nord stream-2” pipeline, Ned Price said.
“We will continue to take action against individuals and companies involved in sanctioned activities to demonstrate our continued opposition to this project,” the State Department official added.
He recalled that the United States still considers “Nord stream-2” a “bad deal” for the European partners of the United States. Price also noted that the US administration will continue to make efforts to ensure that Russia “cannot use energy as a tool of coercion against Ukraine or any other country.”
