Friday, 26 March 2021 (YJC)_ US Secretary of State said that US-Germany Spat Over Nord Stream 2 'Won't Affect' Bilateral Ties.

Blinken: US-Germany Spat Over Nord Stream 2US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has made it clear that discrepancies between Germany and the US over the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project will not damage bilateral relations.

In an interview with Euronews on Thursday, Blinken touted Germany as one of America's "closest allies and partners anywhere in the world", saying that both sides are "working together every single day on so many issues that have a profound impact on the lives of our citizens and working as the closest of partners".

"And the fact that we have a disagreement over Nord Stream 2 – and it's a real one – is not affecting and will not affect the overall partnership and relationship", the secretary of state emphasised.

The secretary of state's Euronews interview comes after the German newspaper Der Tagesspiegel reported about Berlin's frustration over Blinken's announcement that Washington still plans to sanction the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and that all businesses involved in its construction might suffer.
