"The United States does not support pipelines such as Nord Stream 2 and a multi-line Turk Stream that will only increase reliance on a single source of supply", Perry told reporters.

"The framework conditions for the energy cooperation between Russian Federation and Europe are determined by the European countries themselves - and not by third-party countries", he said in August 2017.

Donald Trump is "applying political pressure" over Nord Stream 2, a planned gas link from Russian Federation to Germany which is opposed by the USA government, a senior Polish official said on Friday. And then numerous of the countries go out and make a pipeline deal (Nord Stream 2) with Russian Federation where they're paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russian Federation. His meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland next week is generating widespread concern.

Mr Trump said to Stoltenberg that "When Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russian Federation".

He added that "I think these countries have to step it up, not over a 10 year period, they have to step it up immediately".

During a state visit, foreign leaders are invited to address the British Parliament ー Trump will not be given that chance. On Friday, Mr Trump will hold talks with the prime minster at Chequers before meeting the Queen at Windsor Castle.

This sensitive matter [on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline] has been discussed in the European Union for some time.

"The president is pretty straightforward about what he believes and he thinks Nord Stream 2 is not in the European Union's best interest and my bet is he'll be more than happy to tell President Putin that straight to his face", said Perry. And the last discussion about customs tariffs on metals (aluminium, steel) they really care.

Freeland said she had a "good conversation" with the Danish foreign minister because the pipeline "is an issue that touches very much on Denmark".

"It will be very beneficial for Ukraine". "It's not just about Ukraine". "So Canada is clear with our partners about the concerns we have with Nord Stream". The US president also called on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member states to immediately do something about the matter.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel - who grew up behind the Iron Curtain in communist East Germany - shot back at Trump.
