"I have to say, I think it's very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where you're supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia", he said.

"Germany is totally controlled by Russian Federation, because they will be getting from 60 to 70 per cent of their energy from Russian Federation and a new pipeline", Trump told Stoltenberg. Once the new pipeline is in operation, it will deliver about 55 billion cubic meters of Russian natural gas annually to Germany, which would then distribute the gas to the rest of Europe.

"And you tell me if that's appropriate, because I think it's not, and I think it's a very bad thing for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and I don't think it should have happened", he added.

"I don't know what he means by that", she said.

"We discussed it with Ukraine", Freeland said. "And we can not lose sight of that".

The pipeline has caused splits within the European Union, with Poland and other eastern states fearing it could be used as a tool to boost Russian influence over the bloc.

"Germany closer to the United States, because in many ways much more dependent on the USA than from Russian Federation". "From our perspective, it looks like a fairly bad deal ..."

Speaking in Brussels, U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said he had not heard any of his European Union counterparts talk positively about Nord Stream 2 and said Washington didn't like it because it didn't promote diversity of supply. "I know will fundamentally destabilize Ukraine".

Europe as a whole consumed about 425 billion cubic meters of natural gas a year ago, of which about 150 billion cubic meters came from Russian Federation.

In time the United States could sell more natural gas to Europe, but the sales probably will be limited to countries like Spain, Portugal and Turkey that have never received a lot of their supply from Russian Federation.

"But the decision (for such projects - ed.) countries are sovereign".

"Supplies of pipeline gas do not lead to dependence of one country on another but to complete mutual dependence".
