Kiev Wants to Take Part in Talks Between the United States and Germany on Nord Stream 2
OREANDA-NEWS. Ukraine wants to be present at the negotiating table between the United States and Germany on Nord Stream 2, Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk told Welt.
"The Nord Stream 2 project hits Ukraine in the very heart: in terms of economics, but above all in terms of security policy. Therefore, we urge you to give us the opportunity to be at the same negotiating table between the United States and Germany on this dangerous project and participate in the discussion." , - quotes the words of the ambassador edition.
According to Melnik, if Washington and Berlin reach an agreement "at the expense of Ukraine," it will turn into a disaster, primarily for mutual trust.
Earlier, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that negotiations between the Federal Republic of Germany and the US administration on Nord Stream 2 are currently underway in Washington.
Some time ago, the White House stated that it would be difficult to prevent the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, since it is practically completed.
Earlier, the White House noted that it would hardly be able to interfere with the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, since the project is almost complete. However, then the United States imposed new sanctions against the organizations of the Russian Federation participating in the project, and ships under the Nord Stream 2 project.
The Russian Federation has repeatedly called to stop mentioning Nord Stream 2 in the context of any politicization, and to consider it exclusively as a commercial project that is beneficial to both Russia and the European Union. The Federal Republic of Germany supports the completion of the gas pipeline and rejects the unilateral extraterritorial sanctions of the United States.
