The EU's energy chief, Maros Sefcovic, said that the EU-US Energy Council discussed Nord Stream 2, aid to Ukraine in the form of energy reforms and the upcoming trilateral gas talks with Russia, Sputnik reports.
"It is a tragedy".
Trump made the comments at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Wednesday, telling Germany it was wrong to support an $11-billion Baltic Sea pipeline to import even more Russian gas while being slow to meet targets for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending. "I do not think it's good, you do not work from a position of strength, you gave up all your power", Trump warned. It's a terrible mistake.
Constructive and stable cooperation between Russia and Ukraine in the field of energy is of utmost importance for both countries and the European Union, Šefčovič said ahead of the meeting, while stressing that the need for a continued, long-term transit of Russian gas through Ukraine to the European Union in a reliable, commercially viable way is indispensable. "You've given up all of your strength". It's very bad for the German people. "I think that's very inappropriate", he said as Upstream went to press. However, Merkel insists the project is a private commercial venture and is not funded by German taxpayers.
"I believe that Germany is going to be getting 50, 60 or even..."
Peskov said Nord Stream 2 will not make Germany, a major buyer of Russian gas, dependent on Russia, and on the contrary it will become a guarantee of stability of gas supplies and "further development of mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields".
