Blinken plans to research a project

A statement by the US State Department said that Blinken stressed during his meeting with Diamond, today, Tuesday, “the importance of transatlantic partnership in facing the destabilizing activities of Russia, China and Iran.”

“Northern Torrent-2” is a Russian project to extend two gas pipelines with a total capacity of 55 billion cubic meters annually, from the Russian coast, across the bottom of the Baltic Sea, to Germany.

Almost all of the project has been implemented, but it faces obstacles due to US pressure, as Washington threatens companies participating in the project with sanctions.
