White House: Biden believes Nord Stream 2 bad deal for Europe

U.S. President Joe Biden the Nord Stream 2 pipeline is a bad deal for Europe and will make determine whether sanctions are in order to stop the project from Russia to Germany, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Tuesday.

The Biden administration is conducting a review of the gas pipeline project, Reuters reported. Psaki said Biden has been clear that Nord Stream 2 is a "bad deal for Europe."

"President Biden has made clear that Nord Stream 2 is a bad deal.  It’s a bad deal because it divides Europe, it exposes Ukraine and Central Europe to Russia," she noted.

"We’re continuing to monitor activity to complete or to certify the pipeline.  And if such activity takes place, we’ll make a determination of the applicability of sanctions. Importantly, sanctions are only one among many important tools to ensure energy security," Psaki stressed.
