The United States assured the German government that any sanctions imposed on Russia would not affect the construction of pipelines.
This is what the press secretary of the Ministry of Economy of Germany announced on Friday, Reuters reports. According to the representative of the department, Germany opposes sanctions of extraterritorial effect, and in the case of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, which connects Russia and Germany, the United States made a promise that construction would not be affected. Meanwhile, the press secretary did not specify when these guarantees were provided.
We should remind you that, according to CAATSA, Washington can impose sanctions on Russia's export pipelines.
