Europe (Nord Stream 2)

EUROPE:

  • NORD STREAM 2: Three powerful U.S. senators and the Trump administration want to halt Gazprom’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline by imposing sanctions on a Baltic port that is supplying the project, which is 94 percent complete.

The Trump Administration has already ramped up pressure on China on a wide range of issues: imposing sanctions on Chinese officials over policies in Tibet and Xinjiang; downgraded relations with Hong Kong after China implemented a new security law; and declaring Beijing’s pursuit of territory and resources in the South China Sea as illegal.
