U.S. to look at whether Nord Stream 2 AG Involved in sanctionable activity

U.S. President Joe Biden's administration will assess whether the project operator Nord Stream 2 AG is involved in any sanctionable activity, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in testimony to Congress.

When asked whether Washington believes that Nord Stream 2 AG is engaging in sanctionable activity, Blinken said it was "something we will look at very carefully."

Earlier at the hearing, Blinken said that the United States is looking at other possible sanction targets over the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, Sputnik reported.

On Monday, a group of House Republicans sent Blinken a letter urging the administration to submit to Congress new sanctions designations related to Nord Stream 2 as soon as possible rather than wait until May 17 - when the current 90-day reporting period ends.
