The US President Donald trump said that the best way to combat Russian influence in the energy sector is the sale of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the US to the EU. About it reports TASS.
The American leader said that the United States intends to impose sanctions against the participants of the “Nord stream-2”. He explained that trying to block the project, the U.S. protects Germany from Russia. According to him, Berlin gives Moscow billions. “But we have something better: the large reserves of LNG. I think this is a real solution,” said trump, answering questions of journalists after negotiations with President of Poland Andrzej Duda.
The American leader expressed hope that the US will be a great relationship with Russia, Germany and other countries of the world.
In addition, trump said that the United States supports the gas pipeline project Baltic Pipeline from Poland to Denmark, “which diversifitsirovat supplies to Europe,” RIA Novosti reported.
Earlier it was reported that the German authorities are not going to accept and carry out the sanctions that might be imposed by the United States in connection with the participation in the project.
“Nord stream-2” should pass under the Baltic sea and connect Russia and Germany. Its launch is scheduled for the end of 2019, but a possible postponement because of the position of Denmark. Copenhagen called the pipeline a threat to the state and said the threat of the growth of Europe’s dependence on Russian gas.
