U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo stated this during a speech at Texas A&M University on Monday, the U.S. Department of State reported.
"We watch as a pipeline is being built in Europe, which will tether Germany to Russia in a way that is not good for German security or the security of the United States of America," Pompeo said.
In this regard, he stressed that the U.S. diplomacy and the energy industry were working to "deliver true security not only to America, but to Europe as well."
As known, Nord Stream 2 is a gas pipeline project which aims to carry more Russian natural gas under the Baltic Sea direct to Germany, bypassing Ukraine and Poland. Russian gas monopoly Gazprom owns 51% of the project’s shares. Russia wants to build two strings of the gas pipeline. The project opponents, including Poland, the Baltic countries, Ukraine, Moldova, the United States and Denmark, argue that Nord Stream 2 will increase the EU's dependence on Gazprom.
