The German Green Party called the sanctions against Nord Stream 2 unacceptable
Greens, which earlier opposed the implementation of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, called the new US sanctions against the project unacceptable. Omid Nuripur, an expert of the Greens on foreign policy, said this in an interview with Reuters.
“The new US sanctions are unacceptable even for the opponents of Nord Stream 2. It is we, the “greens” who have always fought against the pipeline, who cannot understand what kind of friendship they are striving for if they impose sanctions against friends when they do business with a third party, “he said.
Nuripur noted that the party still considers the gas pipeline to be a “mistake” of the German government, however, the politician stressed, the United States has nothing to do with Nord Stream 2.
Such statements by the “greens” are being made for the first time … A coalition agreement will be presented next Wednesday. The party will enter the next government of the Federal Republic of Germany, and its members are expected to head the Foreign Ministry and the new Ministry of Economy and Climate.
Earlier, the US Treasury Department imposed sanctions against Transadria and the Marlin vessel associated with Nord Stream 2 “. The publication argues that the decision was made on the basis of the Protecting European Energy Security Act (PEESA) of 2019.
