Change of power in the United States will not affect Germany's position regarding Nord Stream 2

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that Germany was not going to change its position on completing the Nord Stream 2 pipeline against the background of the imminent coming to power of a new administration in the United States. The United States opposes the construction of this gas pipeline, according to RBC-Ukraine.

US President-elect Joseph Biden, like the current head of the White House, Donald Trump, opposes the gas pipeline's construction.

"The federal government will not change its attitude towards Nord Stream 2," he said.

According to Maas, the problems in the assessments of which Washington and Berlin will differ will remain in the future.

“It is important that we adhere to a single line on central strategic and geopolitical issues, we are on the same side,” he added.

To recap, the United States is preparing new sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.

Earlier, the construction of the last section of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline in Danish waters was planned to be restored on January 15.
