Manuela Schleswig, Prime Minister of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, assessed the readiness of the pipeline at a hearing on “Nord stream-2” in the Bundestag.
“This is a major infrastructure project, and it is 97 percent complete,” she said.
At the same time, Schleswig drew attention to the threats that come from Washington.
“The fact that the United States threatens the management and employees of the small port of Mukran-although they have not committed anything illegal, they ensure the laying of pipes for a pipeline that is legally legal-that these threats are possible from a friendly nation, to which we are also indebted this year for the thirtieth anniversary of German unification, is monstrous. And I expect you to support the citizens of our country,” the Prime Minister added.
Schleswig has previously spoken about threats from the US. We are talking about a letter in which three us senators warn the company-operator of the port of Mukran about the upcoming sanctions and that if work continues on the “Nord stream-2,” the port faces “financial destruction.” The Premier of Mecklenburg – Vorpommern said at the time that the region “firmly adheres to the construction of the pipeline” and expects the Federal government to respond decisively to blackmail attempts by the Americans.
