Blinken Says Nord Stream 2 'Undermines Security of Ukraine, Europe', Can Be Used as 'Coercive Tool'

Earlier, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken reiterated the Joe Biden administration’s stance regarding the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline currently nearing completion, pleading that it was “ultimately in contradiction to the EU’s own security goals”.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has underscored Berlin’s determination to seek an acceptable solution to the Nord Stream 2 project for all sides involved.

Speaking after a meeting with US State Secretary Antony Blinken, he said Germany was ready to contribute to ensuring that the 745-mile-long pipeline, set to bring Russian gas to Germany under the Baltic Sea, is not used against the interests of Ukraine.

The statements by the German official followed a warning voiced by Blinken that Nord Stream 2 was a Russian geo-political project that purportedly undermined the security of Ukraine and could be used as a coercive tool against Europe as well. During the meeting of the two politicians the US State Secretary reiterated that Washington wanted to make sure that Europe energy security is bolstered further.
