Maas: Nord Stream 2 is good, European energy policy must be decided in Europe

Berlin believes that U.S. sanctions against the Nord Stream 2 is the wrong way to solve a dispute over energy supply, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said.

"Questions of European energy policy must be decided in Europe, not in the U.S.," the minister stressed.

"To impose unilateral sanctions against Nord Stream 2 is certainly not the way to go," Reuters cited Maas as saying.

U.S. President Donald Trump has accused Germany of being a "captive" of Russia due to its energy reliance and urged it to halt work on the $11 billion, Russian-led gas pipeline that is to be built in the Baltic Sea.
