USA responds to Germany and Russia: Nord Stream 2 will not be built

An American diplomat convinces that Nord Stream 2, criticized by the USA and countries of Central and Eastern Europe, will not be built.

At a press conference, Deputy Assistant Secretary John McCarrick said that he cannot see a possibility to build Nord Stream 2. – This thing will not come true – said the politician.

– There are many reasons why it cannot happen…the last one is that we are against it. We see no chances for it happening, so why should I consider any other option – wondered McCarrick quoted by Radio Free Europe. American president has time until 1st of January to consider introduction of sanctions against Russia proposed by the Senate, including a proposition to sanction the subjects engaged in Russian energy projects, like Nord Stream 2.

McCarrick’s statement appeared on the day of common declaration of German foreign minister Sigmar Gabriel during a meeting with Vladimir Putin in Moscow that Nord Stream 2 should not be subjected to EU regulations. Supporters of such solutions claim that this could make realization of the project impossible
