The White House may appoint a special representative for the “Nord stream-2”

The United States intends to negotiate the closure of the project.

The White House discusses the possibility of appointing a special representative of the United States for negotiations on the “Nord stream-2” project to close it. This was reported on Wednesday by the newspaper Politico, citing sources in the US administration.

According to her, the corresponding position was offered by the assistant to the US President for National Security, Jake Sullivan, at the end of April to Amos Hockstein, who served as special representative and coordinator for international energy affairs in the Obama administration. Last year, Hockstein left the post of director of the Supervisory Board of Naftogaz of Ukraine.

He has not yet responded to Sullivan’s suggestion.

As noted by Politico, the consideration of such a step means some change in US policy on this issue: in particular, it indicates closer attention of Washington to the project. Sources told the newspaper that there is a consensus in the White House that more efforts are needed to close the project, especially now that it is 96% complete.
