  • Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine explained what would make the Nord Stream negotiations effective

Kyiv: Spreading European rules on the Nord Stream is the only effective way to make our trilateral advice effective and constructive.

This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin at a joint press conference with the German Federal Minister of Foreign Affairs Heiko Maas.

“Our position is very clear, we believe that the extension of European rules to the Nord Stream is the only effective way to make our trilateral consultations effective and constructive. And of course, this will enable us to bring the discussion itself into a rational dimension,” said Klimkin.

He noted that now the issue is being discussed with the European Commission so that all European rules are applied to our gas transportation system.

“If our gas transportation system falls under European rules, then Nord Stream must also comply with European rules. This will allow us to do a lot in the context of the energy security of Europe, this will ensure real competition and the stability of supplies of the Ukrainian natural gas transmission system," the Ukrainian minister stressed.

According to him, if there is no transit through the Ukrainian territory, "Russia will use completely different methods to destabilize Ukraine and achieve its own logic of the federalization of Ukraine."
