Critical statements of representatives of the United States and Poland on the «Nord stream-2″are not surprising, said at a briefing the representative of the foreign Ministry of Germany Rainer Broglie.

On Saturday U.S. Secretary of state Rex Tillerson after a meeting with Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki said that the United States supports Poland in opposition to the project «Northern stream-2». According to him, Washington will support Warsaw in the quest to diversify sources of energy supply, in particular it may be the supply of liquefied natural gas from the United States.

«I see no reason it (the statements of the foreign Ministers of Poland and the United States — ed.) to evaluate, do not believe these statements cause surprise,» said Broglie.

The project «Northern stream-2» involves the construction of two pipelines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters of gas off the coast of Russia through the Baltic sea to Germany. The new pipeline is planned to be build next to the «Nord stream». Against the implementation of the project, a number of countries, in particular Ukraine, which fears to lose the income from the transit of Russian gas, the US has ambitious plans to export to Europe its LNG.
