US sanctions on Nord Stream 2 affect German sovereignty

Bundestag Economic Affairs and Energy Committee Chairman, Klaus Ernst, said on Tuesday the sanctions introduced by the United States against the Nord Stream 2 project represent an issue which directly affects German sovereignty.

Ernst urged the German government to respond by taking action, suggesting the country should introduce penalties against the US senators who supported the bill which allowed sanctions to be imposed.

In the same statement, Ernst reassured the Budenstag committee members agreed that the pipeline which connects Germany and Russia should be completed despite US protest.
