Nord Stream 2 matter of honor for Germany - Lavrov

Russian Foreign Affairs Minister Sergey Lavrov stated on Thursday the completion of the Nord Stream 2 should be the "matter of honor" for Germany to avoid being "humiliated" and lobbied into imposing sanctions by the United States.

"We see how the US attempts every day to humiliate publicly the European Union, Germany in the first instance; how the US from lips of their official spokespersons' demands from Germany to recognize its fortune; and the need to strengthen its energy security, implied by the US as the abandonment of the Nord Stream 2 and the transfer to substantially more expensive US liquefied natural gas," he said.

Earlier this month, Kremlin noted the Nord Stream 2 is a strategic project beneficial for both Russia and the European Union that should not be politicized.
