French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian indicates gas pipeline could be targeted, as Emmanuel Macron and Vladimir Putin are set to talk.
Sanctions against Russia if it invades Ukraine could target the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said Friday.
“Allies have decided to prepare dissuasive sanctions to get Russia to face up its responsibilities, and the risks it is taking … This also means, for instance, blocking the Nord Stream pipeline,” Le Drian said in an interview with RTL radio.
