EU foreign policy chief vows response if gas line was sabotaged
The European Union’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borell, says the EU bloc suspects that damage to two underwater natural gas pipelines was sabotage, and is warning of retaliation for any attack on Europe's energy networks.
Seismologists reported on Tuesday that explosions rattled the Baltic Sea before unusual leaks were discovered on two underwater natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany.
Borell says all available information indicates those leaks are the result of a deliberate act. He added that any deliberate disruption of European energy infrastructure is, quote, "utterly unacceptable, and will be met with a robust and united response".
