Lavrov believe US to make EU finance infrastructure for American LNG

The statements US President Donald Trump made about the Nord Stream-2 project are indicative of Washington’s intention to make the EU finance the construction of the expensive infrastructure for the supplies of American liquefied natural gas (LNG), Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with Slovakia’s Pravda newspaper. The goal of Trump’s statement is clear to Moscow, the diplomat said. “It implies promotion of American economic and energy interests in Europe, in particular, making the EU countries finance the construction of an expensive infrastructure and start buying liquefied natural gas from the US, which is 30-40% more expensive than the pipeline gas from Russia. It is up to Europeans to decide which option they like more,” the minister said.
