The European Union believes that sanctions against Nord Stream 2 will hit Europe
Sanctions that will hit Europe and Germany should not be imposed, EU foreign ministers said.
EU foreign ministers deny Swedish counterpart Ann Linde a discussion on banning gas pipeline construction Nord Stream-2. The minister said this in an interview with TT, published on Monday, February 22.
According to Linde, she suggested that ministers include a ban on the SP-2 project in the EU sanctions package against Russia under opposition leader Alexei Navalny, as Sweden’s position is.
“Several countries have indicated that they consider this inappropriate, as it concerns energy issues, and should not subject, as someone said, 150 European companies and impose sanctions that will hit Europe and Germany,” said the Swedish Foreign Minister.
Linde approved the participation in the online meeting of US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken.
“It’s great – an experienced foreign minister who knows the EU and Europe, who has been involved in negotiating an agreement with Iran and who has repeatedly stated, ‘This is difficult, there are no easy solutions,'” she said.
We will remind, the day before it became known that the EU not later than in a week will enter sanctions against the citizens of the Russian Federation responsible for arrest, charge and sentence to Navalny.
