Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki called the Nord Stream-2 pipeline project highly dangerous, Polish Radio reports. Speaking together with his counterparts from the Baltic Republics, Morawiecki stated that they agreed on the dangers the project posed to "this part of Europe."
Morawiecki added that Poland achieved independence from Russia's Gazprom long ago. "We have built the LNG-terminal in the city of Świnoujście and are now planning to increase its processing capabilities. In addition, we are now in talks with Denmark and Norway," he said.
Nord Stream-2 is a gas pipeline construction project with a projected capacity of 55 billion cubic meters from Russia to Germany through the Baltic Sea. It is assumed that the route along the bottom of the sea, as well as the entry point to the gas system of Germany in Greifswald will be the same as that of the Nord Stream 1, launched in 2011.
In late January, Morawiecki told reporters that during a meeting with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson he raised the issue of imposing sanctions against Nord Stream-2 because it posed a threat to energy security for the entire region.
