The United States government has registered its concerns about constructing a parallel Nord Stream 2 transporting Russian gas into the European continent.

Robin Dunnigan, the US deputy assistant secretary for energy diplomacy, told the Copenhagen - based Berlingske newspaper that the US hopes Denmark will reject the pipeline as she feels important NATO nations, such as Germany, are already too dependent on Russian gas. She added that Europe has other options that would lessen dependency on Russia and strengthen energy security.

“It doesn’t match the EU’s own declared energy targets. So it’s better to focus on a number of other projects to secure other supply lines for natural gas,” Dunnigan noted.
