The USA threatened the German companies with sanctions because of "Nord Stream-2"


The ambassador of the USA in Germany Richard Grenel allowed a possibility of imposition of sanctions concerning the German companies because of support of "Nord Stream-2". The Bild edition reports about it. In the corresponding letters Grenel reminded the companies that the USA opposes "Nord Stream-2" as this project "bears serious geopolitical consequences for the European allies and partners" Americans. He also noted that many European countries and also Canada, support a position of the United States. The countries are anxious "narastayushche with aggressive behavior of Russia", especially use of "energy resources as political and economic levers". "Thereof on behalf of my government I ask that your company considered danger which this project constitutes for the European energy security and also reputation costs and the risk of sanctions associated with it" — it is said in the letter. Grenel added that the message should be perceived not as threat and as "expression of policy of the USA". Earlier in January it became known that the USA can impose sanctions against the European companies participating in construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline. The main supporter of imposition of new sanctions called Grenel. It was noted that the government of Germany treats threats of Washington "with big concern". According to plans, "Nord Stream-2" has to be put into operation at the end of 2019. "The film of day" is more than important news in Telegram channel. Subscribe!
