The media learned about the preparation of the EU response to the sanctions on Nord Stream – 2

    The European Union is preparing a response to US sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project. About this writes Handelsblatt, referring to the written response of the head of diplomacy of the EU, Josep Borrel, to the request of the European Parliament.

    “The European Commission is preparing the adoption of a strengthened sanctions mechanism that will improve the resilience of Europe against the impact of extraterritorial sanctions imposed by third countries,” an excerpt from Borrell’s response is provided.

    However, it is not specified what kind of response measures are being discussed.

    As Bloomberg previously wrote, Germany is preparing measures in case the US imposes new sanctions on Nord Stream 2.

    The European Commission noted that they are monitoring the situation with the bill in the United States to expand sanctions against the gas pipeline. (Source: rambler)
