US forces European Union into buying LNG

Nord Stream worker

But Trump's harsh criticism of Germany echoes statements from US officials from past administrations, including Kerry himself, according to recently resurfaced videos, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Poland has always been a vocal critic of Nord Stream 2.

She said she has discussed the issue with Ukraine, which opposes the pipeline because of the leverage it would give Russian Federation over European countries. Seated across from NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the president said USA commitments to European defense were undermined by Germany's ties to the Russian energy sector.

Russian Federation has obtained construction permits for Nord Stream 2 from Germany, Finland and Sweden, as the pipeline will pass through their maritime exclusive economic zones.

The remark drew fury from top Democrats, who claimed it was an example of Trump being loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin at the expense of America's closest allies.

It's not clear whether Trump's goal in targeting Merkel this morning was to shame Germany into putting more money into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation or to encourage the Germans to buy more natural gas from the United States.

"We're also going to discuss one other specific issue of deep concern to me and to everybody here, and I think that's the Nord Stream 2 pipeline", Kerry said then. "I think that's very inappropriate", he said as Upstream went to press.

Andriy Shevchenko, Ukraine's ambassador to Canada, said he was "very pleased" with Freeland's statement Wednesday. And the last discussion about customs tariffs on metals (aluminium, steel) they really care.

Pointing to conflict between Russian Federation and Georgia a decade ago, which threatened the 1,099-mile Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, Healy Baumgardner, a global fossil fuel adviser and the former press secretary for the Energy Department under President George W. Bush, told UPI it's naïve to try to decouple energy from political issues.

"They will use that to weaken the European Union, to divide the European allies", warned Andriy Shevchenko, Ukraine's ambassador to Canada.

Some in Washington have called for Nord Stream 2 and its leaders, such as its chairman former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, to be added to US Treasury sanctions lists.

"I've experienced myself a part of Germany controlled by the Soviet Union", she said.
