United States supports Canada’s decision to return turbine to Germany

The US supports Canada’s decision to return a repaired turbine to Germany for the Nord Stream 1 gas pipeline, the State Department said on Monday, a move aimed at guaranteeing uninterrupted energy exports to Europe in the aftermath of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“In the medium term, the turbine will allow Germany and other European nations to refill their gas stocks, boosting their energy security and resilience, and opposing Russia’s efforts to weaponize energy,” said department spokesperson Ned Price.
