Biden, Zelensky to discuss impact of Nord Stream 2 - White House

U.S. and Ukrainian Presidents Joe Biden and Volodymyr Zelensky at a meeting on September 1 will discuss a number of energy issues, including the further elimination of the consequences of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline being put into operation, the White House has said in a statement ahead of the meeting.

"Turning to energy, the presidents will announce new initiatives to tackle the climate crisis and to advance Ukraine's energy security, including the launch of a reinvigorated Strategic Energy and Climate Dialogue that will be led by the Department of Energy. The aim of this dialogue is to attract energy security investment through reform, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, address other climate change initiatives, and continue to address the impact of Nord Stream 2," the White House said.

Earlier, Zelensky said that Ukraine counted on guarantees, namely sanctions, from the United States if the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is completed and put into operation.

Zelensky is on a working visit to Washington at Biden's invitation.

The two leaders are to hold negotiations on September 1.
