Biden looks to appoint special envoy to stop Nord Stream 2 pipeline

The White House is in talks to appoint a special envoy to lead negotiations on halting the construction of Russia's gas pipeline Nord Stream 2, current and former U.S. officials said.

Amos Hochstein, who served as the special envoy and coordinator for international energy affairs under President Barack Obama and was a close adviser and confidant to then-Vice President Joe Biden, was informally offered the role by National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan late last month and is being vetted, the officials said, but he has not yet accepted the job, Politico reported.

Hochstein stepped down from the supervisory board of the Ukrainian energy company Naftogaz late last year.
