February 16, 2019 at 12:30 GMT +00:00 · Published

US Vice President Mike Pence reaffirmed the US opposition of the North Stream 2 pipeline between Russia and Germany during his address at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday.

"We've stood strong against efforts as well to divide our alliance through political interference or the use of energy resources. And the United States commands all our European partners who've taken a strong stand against Nord Stream 2. And we commend others to do the same. We've also made it clear that we will not stand idly by while NATO allies purchase weapons from our adversaries," said Pence.

He added: "We cannot ensure the defense of the West if our allies grow dependent on the East."

The Vice President is in Munich with a delegation that includes Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, two of the senior advisors of US President Donald Trump.
