Trump’s visit to Poland with Nord Stream 2 in the background

US President Donald Trump and his wife will visit Poland and Denmark – says the White House. The purpose of the visit is, inter alia, to “face common security challenges in the region”.

The Americans are considering introducing sanctions on the disputed pipeline from Russia to Germany called Nord Stream 2. The Senate Foreign Affairs Committee approved a draft of such restrictions, which still has to go through both houses of parliament and get signed by President Trump.

The White House’s announcement informs that the US president will take part in the commemoration ceremony of the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of World War II in Warsaw, and then in Copenhagen he will meet the Queen of Denmark and representatives of the local business. Interestingly, Denmark’s disagreement with the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline may delay the implementation of the project, which was originally to be completed by the end of this year.
