Kremlin knows of some understandings reached by Berlin, Washington on Nord Stream 2, but doesn't have details - Peskov

MOSCOW. July 21 (Interfax) - The content of public statements on the issue of Nord Stream 2 following the talks between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and U.S. President Joe Biden is not enough for an evaluation of whether the agreements reached by Berlin and Washington on this matter are acceptable to the Kremlin, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

Peskov was asked during a traditional meeting with journalists on Wednesday whether the Kremlin finds the results of these talks acceptable.

"We know that Nord Stream 2 was high on the agenda of the German chancellor's contacts in Washington. We know that certain understandings were reached between Berlin and Washington. But we don't have the rest of the details yet," he said.

Peskov was asked whether the public statements that have already been made on the outcome of these talks are enough to understand whether it is acceptable to Moscow.

"No, not enough yet," Peskov said.
