EU sees Nord Stream leaks as "deliberate act": Borrell
Evidence so far shows that the leaks that occurred at the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines were "a deliberate act," EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said on September 28.
"All available information indicates those leaks are the result of a deliberate act," Borrell said. "We will support any investigation aimed at getting full clarity on what happened and why, and will take further steps to increase our resilience in energy security."
Borrell warned that "any disruption of European energy infrastructure is utterly unacceptable and will be met with a robust and united response."
Danish and Swedish authorities have confirmed that three of the four strings that makes up the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines suffered major leaks on September 26, and seismologists in Sweden have recorded explosions taking place on the same day.
