Kremlin says new gas pipeline to Germany will help stability

US US sanction risks Russian pipeline US-Russia germany Donald trump world news US President Donald Trump

Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, countered Thursday, saying "natural gas pipelines lead not to a dependence of one country from another, but to mutual interdependence".

Trump, who never misses a chance to accuse Angela Merkel's Germany of free-riding on United States generosity, told North Atlantic Treaty Organisation that Nord Stream 2 would make Berlin "captive" to Russian interests.

He recalled that the Russian side has repeatedly pointed out that "Nord stream - 2" is a purely commercial project.

In May 2016, Kerry was speaking in Washington, D.C. together with Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and European Union High Representative Federica Mogherini, where he expressed concerns about the very same energy project Germany is undergoing.

"We're protecting Germany, we're protecting France, we're protecting all these countries (via Nato)".

Novichok that killed woman came from bottle, police believe
Earlier today military workers seized two emergency vehicles as part of the investigation into the Novichok poisoning. Officers believe the drug came from Russian Federation in an attempt to murder former spy Mr Skripal.

"We consider that it's a question of economic competition and that ... the buyers must take their own decision", he said.

"As for Germany's dependence (on Russia) as a major gas buyer we can not agree with this premise", Peskov told reporters on a conference call. "But if Germany opts to drop this new pipeline, then obviously the opportunity for LNG would be much greater", Kokin said.

The Nord Stream and Turk Stream developments are controversial because they will connect Russian gas fields to the central European market, bypassing neighbors like Ukraine. "In theory, if you tried to imagine a scenario where all the imports from the Netherlands stopped altogether, and there was only Norway and Russian Federation left as sources of gas, then it's possible that Russian Federation basically increases its share up to 60-70%".

At the summit's opening, U.S. President Donald Trump railed against what he characterized as a "massive gas deal" between Germany and Russian Federation, calling it inappropriate. He said he also mentioned tripartite talks [on gas - EU-RF-Ukraine], which they will hold.
