/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The Department of Information and Print of the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia has criticized US Deputy
Assistant Secretary of State Matthew Bryza. In an interview with
the Financial Times Deutschland, Bryza intimidated German readers
with prospect of building of North-European gas pipeline, stating
"the gas pipeline will strengthen Germany’s dependence on Russian
gas and what happened in Ukraine past winter will take place." The
Russian MFA reminded that the US were against the Blue Stream gas
pipeline, grounding it with Turkey and Europe allegedly refusing energy
dependence on Russia. "Life has shown that these suppositions were
false. Blue Stream became a successful example of Russian-Turkish
cooperation and at the moment opportunities of its expansion are
discussed. Unfortunately, an impression is formed that not concern
over energy security of Europe, but a principle, advocated by a range
of US officials, according to which a good pipeline is the one that
overpasses Russia, underlies Washington counteraction to Blue Stream
and now to the North-European gas pipeline," says the statement of
the Department of Information and Print of the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs of Russia, reports Mediamax.
