The German Foreign Ministry said it was confident of completing the construction of “Nord Stream-2”

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas expressed confidence in the completion of the “Nord stream-2” gas pipeline. He said this in an interview.

He noted that the question remains open — when exactly the project will be completed. The Minister also drew attention to the fact that Europe makes the decision on energy supply independently of the United States.

“We do not criticize the fact that the United States more than doubled its oil imports from Russia last year and is now the second-largest importer of Russian oil,” Maas said. Washington has the right to independent energy policy, and Europe does the same, he added.

On October 8, the German Foreign Minister said that the proposed sanctions against Russia do not affect the gas pipeline. According to him, ‘Nord Stream-2″ remains a multilateral project and requires international consensus.
