EUROPE:

NORD STREAM 2:

  • The German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern plans to set up a foundation to help the completion of the Nord Stream 2 (NS2) pipeline to bring Russian gas to Germany and to fend off the threat of increased U.S. sanctions that halted work last year. It will be far harder for the United States to target a state-backed foundation with measures such as freezing funds.

EUROPE:

NORD STREAM 2:

  • Russia accelerates Nord Stream 2 pipeline project before the U.S. tightens sanctions against the controversial project designed to feed more natural gas into Germany. The U.S. is maneuvering to tighten sanctions, extending penalties to companies that provide technical certification and insurance for the work. The U.S. maintains that Nord Stream 2 gives Russia too much leverage over Europe and that American liquefied natural gas supplies are a better alternative.

  • Germany announced a set of Indo-Pacific policy guidelines, to allow Germany to make “an active contribution to shaping the international order in the Indo-Pacific.”  Germany recognizes that the growing strategic uncertainty in the Indo-Pacific—due both to China’s increasing assertiveness in the region and the American push back that this has engendered—is likely to have direct impact on Germany’s future prosperity and security.
