The gas pipeline is about 95% ready.
The White House acknowledged that it is almost impossible to stop the construction of the “Nord stream-2” gas pipeline, which is about 95% ready. This was stated on Thursday at a briefing by the press secretary of the American president Jen Psaki.
“When the president took office, the pipeline was 95% ready,” she said. “How could we stop a project in another country that is 95% ready?” she objected to a journalist who claimed that the US authorities could prevent the construction of the pipeline, but do not do so. According to Psaki, key relations with Germany, global factors, deciding to abandon sanctions against Nord Stream 2 AG and its head Matthias Warnig, guided the United States. “We have, of course, an important, vital relationship with the leaders in Germany. And we develop solutions, taking into account a range of global factors,” she said.
