Nord Stream 2 a ‘private project’, says Europe’s top diplomat

The disputed Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from Russia to Germany is a “private project” and the EU cannot hamper its construction, the bloc’s top diplomat, Josep Borrell, has been cited as saying by a Polish news website.

“Because we’re talking about a private project, we can’t hamper the operations of those companies if the German government agrees to it”, Borrell said Tuesday, cited by news sources.

According to Poland's wpolityce.pl website, Borrell added that the European Commission has said the pipeline does not lead to the diversification of the EU's energy sources and, if finished, the project will have to operate in accordance with EU law.

The United States recently announced sanctions targeting a pipe-laying ship as well as companies involved in the controversial gas project.

Nord Stream 2, designed to double the capacity of the existing Nord Stream undersea gas pipeline, is expected to send around 55 billion cubic meters of Russian natural gas a year directly to Germany under the Baltic Sea while bypassing the Baltic states, Poland and Ukraine.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a media interview in September that the United States was working to build a coalition of countries to stop the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline from being completed in Europe.

Speaking out on the pipeline in 2019, US President Donald Trump said: “We’re protecting Germany from Russia and Russia is getting billions and billions of dollars from Germany.”

Poland has vehemently opposed the project, saying it will pose a threat to Europe’s energy security.
