BRUSSELS, Sep. 28 () –
European Union energy ministers will examine this Friday the gas leaks due to a possible sabotage to the Nord Stream pipeline and how to respond to this situation, in the midst of the energy pulse with Russia.
The incidents recorded in the gas pipeline on a Danish island in the Baltic Sea, which the EU points out are provoked, have already been the subject of discussion this Wednesday at the level of ambassadors of the Twenty-seven in Brussels, although European sources assure Europa Press that no immediate response has emerged.
During the debate, several EU countries, among them Denmark and Germany, have asked that the matter goes to the table of the European energy ministers who this Friday hold an extraordinary meeting in Brussels to determine emergency measures in the face of the insecurity of the Russian supply caused by the conflict in Ukraine.
Denmark raised the alarm on Tuesday after detecting a gas leak in one of the sections of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline on the Danish island of Bornholm. Hours later, the Nord Stream 1 underwater pipeline detected a drop in the pressure of gas from Russia sent to Germany and affecting both lines of the pipeline.
The EU considers this to be an act of sabotage, after noting in a statement that all available information “indicates that the leaks are the result of a deliberate act” and is therefore committed to any investigation that will shed clarity on what happened.
“Any deliberate disruption of European energy infrastructure is absolutely unacceptable and will be met with a strong and united response,” the communiqué signed by the member states warned.
