The Biden administration waived sanctions on Nord Stream 2 AG and its chief executive earlier this week as the U.S. seeks to rebuild ties with Germany, after relations deteriorated under Republican former President Donald Trump.
“This information is definitely not positive from the security point of view, as we know perfectly that Nord Stream 2 is not only a business project - it is mostly a geopolitical project,” Polish government spokesman Piotr Muller said.
“The project changes the structure of powers in central and eastern Europe when it comes to energy security,” Muller told Poland’s Radio Plus. ■
