US President Joe Biden will discuss with German Chancellor Angela Merkel Disagreements on the North Stream-2 pipeline at a meeting, which will be held within the G7 Summit. This was announced by the official representative of the US Department of State Ned Price, RIA Novosti reports.
Price stressed that the position of the American side for the project has not changed. The United States opposes the construction of a pipeline and consider it as a threat of European power security.
To date, “Northern Stream-2” is ready for 95 percent. Initially, the launch was scheduled for the end of 2019, but due to American sanctions it had to postpone several times. Russian President Vladimir Putin stated in June that the completion of the second branch of the pipeline will occur after one and a half or two months. The first thread will be fill in gas already on June 11.
