According to the politician, today the "Nord stream-2" is for Germany to tackle the same duties that the United States wants to put in order to equalize competition with European and American goods to the European and American market.

"We have been clear that firms working in the Russian energy export pipeline sector are engaging in a line of business that carries sanctions risk", a spokesman for the U.S. State Department told Reuters.

Mr Trump renewed his call for other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to pay in more to the Western alliance after years in which U.S. taxpayers have, he said, borne an "unfair" share of military spending.

Divers prepare to resume Thai cave rescue
A third rescue operation to bring out the remaining four boys and their football coach from a flooded cave in Thailand has begun. Citing a former SEAL diver with the Thai Navy, the BBC reported that some of the boys were asleep, while others were "groggy".

Some in Washington have called for Nord Stream 2 and its leaders, such as its chairman former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, to be added to US Treasury sanctions lists. "Russian gas can and should be part of the European market, but that market needs to be open and competitive".

But he said the priority for now was to secure gas from the Caspian Sea region, while maintaining supplies of Russian gas through Ukrainian pipelines beyond 2019.

Trump's attack on Nord Stream 2 has triggered harsh reaction in Germany. In other words, if the Netherlands is out of the picture, it's quite likely that LNG will enter anyway.

President Trump stated that Russian Federation completely controls the FRG through the expansion of energy supplies through the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline.

How hero doctor's Aussie accent played surprise role in Thai cave rescue
During the mission to save the boys, a former Thai Navy SEAL Saman Kunam died after volunteering to lend his expertise. The exact mechanics of the rescue bid were closely guarded during the operation, but details have since dribbled out.

"We're also going to discuss one other specific issue of deep concern to me and to everybody here, and I think that's the Nord Stream 2 pipeline", Kerry said then. He said he also mentioned tripartite talks [on gas - EU-RF-Ukraine], which they will hold.
