US, Germany's Nord Stream 2 Deal Shows Kiev 'Absolutely Out of Play': Ex-Ukrainian Foreign Minister

On Wednesday, the US and Germany published a joint statement on the completion of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project, supporting the idea to continue the transit of Russian gas through Ukraine after 2024.

A US-German deal on Nord Stream 2 indicates that Kiev has lost status in terms of its involvement in discussing issues related to the project, former Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin has suggested.

In remarks written on his Facebook page on Thursday, he described "the latest agreement" on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project as "just the tip of the iceberg", adding that "many [things] remain behind the scenes".
Referring to Nord Stream 2, Klimkin argued that "the United States […] will keep its leverages, and not only open ones".
