Berlin Responds to US Threats of Imposing Sanctions Against Nord Stream 2

Berlin Responds to US Threats of Imposing Sanctions Against Nord Stream 2
As Washington has declared that it might introduce sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, authorities in Berlin have said that such a move won't guarantee the growth of imports of liquefied gas from the US.

Even if Berlin suspends the implementation of the Nord Stream 2 project, it does not mean that this would be beneficial for the US, German Energy Minister Peter Altmaier said.

"The US is looking for markets, we understand this, and we are ready to make it easier for US gas to reach Germany, but as for now, it remains more expensive than the gas supplied through the pipeline," the minister told the ARD broadcaster.

Altmaier also added that if the United States puts its own economic interests at the forefront, they should be prepared that the Europeans "would respond in kind."
