The signatories consider Nord Stream 2 a geopolitical project geared towards expanding Russia's influence on Europe by dominating the energy market.
“The likely repercussion of the completion and operation of Nord Stream 2 is to undermine the development of a single, liberalized, and open European market by consolidating sources of supply in the Nord Stream 2 system and deterring investment in alternatives,” the joint statement [which is attached to this story] says.
“We expect a clear commitment from Germany to reduce dependency on gas imported from Russia and move towards green energy,” it adds.
It also insists that any further agreements on Nord Stream 2 necessitate consultations across the transatlantic family.
“Countering malign Russian aggression is in all of NATO's, all EU members, and our partners in Central and Eastern Europe vital national security interests,” the signatories say.
The statement is signed on Latvia's behalf by Rihards Kols (NAtional Alliance), Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Saeima.
"The completion and continued operation of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline will jeopardize the development of a single, liberalized and open European market and is likely to hamper investment in alternative energy sources," Kols said.
