During the visit he met with Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen and Minister of foreign Affairs Jeppe Kofod.
The Secretary of state stressed that the US would actively defend their geopolitical interests.
July 6, DEA issued a permit for laying pipes in the interests of the pipeline using the less environmentally friendly type of vessels. To carry out this work could only ships with dynamic positioning.
In December last year, the United States imposed sanctions against companies involved in the construction of “Nord stream-2”. After that, pipelay, owned by Allseas, a Swiss, was forced to leave the place of work. The company-operator Nord Stream AG 2 left the ship with dynamic positioning “Akademik Chersky”, but still impossible to be fully utilized due to difficulties with insurance as most companies refuse to provide services because of concerns fall under the us restrictions.
Denmark is the last of all countries in the waters of which pass the “Nord stream-2”, was allowed to work in their territorial waters. Due to bureaucratic delays, the project could not be completed to the original target date of the end of December 2019.
