Germany is interested in discussing the implementation of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project with the new US administration, Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas told reporters on Friday.

“We believe this is a positive decision,” the minister noted.

The Nord Stream 2 project envisages the construction of two pipeline strings with a total capacity of 55 bln cubic meters per year from the coast of Russia through the Baltic Sea to Germany. To date, 94% of Nord Stream 2 has been finished.
