Sanctions on Nord Stream 2 Would ‘Turn EU Energy Policy Into US's Plaything’ – German Businessman

Last week, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee approved new ‘Protecting Europe’s Energy Security Act’ legislation which if passed, would sanction companies involved in Nord Stream 2– a major energy infrastructure project designed to facilitate the delivery of up to 55 billion cubic meters of gas per year to Western Europe from Russia.

US sanctions on Nord Stream 2 would amount to an intolerable interference in European energy policy, Wolfgang Buechele, veteran German business executive and chairman of the Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations, has said.

“The latest US sanctions proposals would primarily harm companies from US-friendly countries like Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland, and turn European energy policy into a plaything of the United States,” Buechele said, speaking to the German Press Agency.
