U.S. attacks EU sovereignty with Nord Stream 2?
The German Eastern Business Association (OAOEV) has strongly warned against sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, branding it fatal for the Paris peace efforts in eastern Ukraine.
According to OAOEV chairman Oliver Hermes, Washington’s attempt to interfere would be “more than an unfriendly act” and would “massively damage” transatlantic relations.
"If these sanctions are approved, this would be a direct attack on the sovereignty of the European Union and a fatal signal for the Paris peace efforts," he said.
Hermes noted that the venture has been granted "all necessary permits from the EU for its completion, besides, needed regulations for operation have been adopted."
