In the European Union, it is against the sanctions that the United States imposes against European companies that are involved in the construction of Nord Stream-2.
This was stated by the official representative of the European Commission.
“We are aware of the bill introduced by Congress last week, which is called the Protecting Europe’s Energy Security Clarification Act of 2020, and we are following the process. In principle, the EU is opposed to imposing sanctions on EU companies doing legitimate business, ” he said.
For the EC, the main goal has always been to ensure that the gas pipeline operates “transparently and non-discriminatoryly, with an appropriate degree of oversight by regulatory authorities in accordance with the basic principles of international law and EU energy law”.
