Washington warns Germany over too close ties with Russia, Iran

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Saturday he told German Chancellor Angela Merkel that Europe and the United States need to stand together against Iran and he reiterated Washington’s opposition to the Nordstream 2 gas pipeline.

Pence told reporters he “talked about all of the issues” including the pipeline under construction between Russia and Germany under the Baltic Sea, a project Washington has urged Berlin to abandon.

“We cannot strengthen the West by becoming dependent on the East,” Pence said.
