WSJ talks about White House irritation over Scholz's stance on SP-2

Author Brett Forrest notes that & nbsp; SP-2 is becoming a potential leverage for the US. Since the United States, according to the & nbsp; journalist, wants to keep Russia from an & nbsp; allegedly possible invasion of & nbsp; Ukraine.

At the same time, Forrest drew attention to the fact that Scholz refuses to politicize a private economic project, unlike Washington.

With this, the journalist recalled that & nbsp; German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock & nbsp; had already stated & nbsp; the impossibility of launching the gas pipeline in the & nbsp; case of an aggravation of the situation.

Earlier, on December 20 & nbsp; Deputy official representative of the German Cabinet of Ministers Wolfgang Buchner stressed that & nbsp; Scholz considers' Nord Stream & nbsp; & mdash; 2 '' economic project. According to & nbsp; Buchner, on all issues related to the gas pipeline, the German government will act together.

With this, Washington has long opposed the project and & nbsp; has already imposed sanctions on the SP-2 several times, which, as experts pointed out, complicated relations with & nbsp; Germany, which supports the project.

Construction of the Nord Stream gas pipeline & nbsp; & mdash; 2 '' ended on 10 & nbsp; September. It was & nbsp; built from & nbsp; Russia to & nbsp; Germany on & nbsp; the bottom of the Baltic with & nbsp; the purpose of direct gas supplies to & nbsp; Europe. Countries & nbsp; EU in & nbsp; mainly support the project and & nbsp; participate in & nbsp; its implementation. The Baltic states, Poland, the USA and & nbsp; Ukraine are opposed.
