U.S. bill on Russian gas pipeline breaches international law - Germany

BERLIN, June 12 (Reuters) - A U.S. Senate bill seeking to expand sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline to Europe would be in breach of international law, an ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday.

“The (German) government has for a long time been of the view that sanctions with extra-territorial outreach breach international law and do not contribute to international cooperation,” said Economy Minister Peter Altmaier.
