Kremlin: US 'Nord Stream 2' resolution - meddling attempt

Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated on Wednesday that the resolution adopted by the United States House of Representatives on the "Nord Stream 2" project is an attempt to prevent the realization of the initiative, TASS reported. The official added that the resolution is nothing "new" as Washington already voiced the "similar position" on the matter, including US President Donald Trump's own stance.

"This is a consistent line, we do not consider it to be correct and acceptable to us, because it’s about trying to prevent the implementation of a purely commercial, economic project that is in the interests of not only the gas supplier, Russia, but also consumers, first of all, Germany as an EU country, " stressed Peskov.

His comments come after the US House of Representatives condemned yesterday the Nord Stream 2 undersea natural gas pipeline, accusing Russia of trying to seize control of Europe's energy supplies.
