Norway has said it is upping its military presence at oil and gas installations, and Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin told reporters this evening that the nation would be watching its waters closely following the incident.
Writing on Truth Social – Mr Trump’s own version of Twitter he produced after being banned from the latter social media site – earlier today, the former President said Mr Biden “should remain ‘cool, calm, and dry’ on the SABOTAGE of the Nord Stream pipelines”.
He said: “This is a big event that should not entail a big solution, at least not yet.”
He urged Mr Biden to “not make matters worse”, and instead to “be strategic, be smart (brilliant!), [and] get a negotiated deal done NOW. Both sides need and want it.”
