The United States Department of State will soon comment on a possible deal between the United States and Germany to resolve differences over the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Tuesday.
On the eve of the media reported that agreements between the United States and Germany on the Nord Stream 2 project had been reached, their content would become known in the coming days.
“I expect that the State Department and other agencies will soon be able to provide more information on this matter,” Psaki said during a regular briefing.
Thus, she responded to a request from journalists to confirm or deny the agreement reached between Washington and Berlin on Nord Stream 2.
She stressed that the American administration is still concerned about how this project will affect the energy security of the European partners of the United States, in particular Ukraine. At the same time, she left unanswered the question of whether the United States is ready to announce new sanctions on this project.
“At the meeting of US President Joe Biden with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, we made it clear: this was discussed. It is planned to discuss the fact that concerns persist about the threats to European energy security from the project and about the fact that it undermines the security of Ukraine, the security of our eastern NATO partners, ”Psaki said at a briefing on Tuesday.
Biden directed his team to work with Merkel’s team to learn how to respond to concerns, she said.
“Although the pipeline was 90 percent complete when the administration took over the office,” Psaki said.
