Germany Offered Washington to Spend €1 Billion Aiding US LNG Imports If US Ended Sanctions on Nord Stream 2

The German government offered the Trump administration financial support of up to €1 billion ($1.21 billion) in a bid to prevent Washington from imposing sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, according to documents published by the non-profit Environmental Action Germany (DUH) Tuesday.

The controversial pipeline, which is nearing completion, would double the amount of natural gas delivered annually from Russia to Germany.

What did Germany allegedly offer?
The DUH published a personal letter from German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz to former US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

Scholz allegedly offered funding for the import of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the US.

In return, the US was asked to allow the “unhindered construction and operation of Nord Stream 2.”
