Germany is within the Russian sphere of influence because of its support for a Gazprom pipeline and dependency on Russian gas, the US president said.
In slamming Germany for its deal to double imports of Russian gas through Nord Stream II, Trump charged Berlin was spending billions of euros for its energy needs from Russia that it could be spending on Nato's defence.
Continuing Russia's gas transit through Ukraine is of strategic importance to the EU, Maros Sefcovic said in a statement.
In May 2016, Kerry was speaking in Washington, D.C. together with Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and European Union High Representative Federica Mogherini, where he expressed concerns about the very same energy project Germany is undergoing.
Russian Federation is keen to press ahead with the Nord Stream 2 pipeline since it has the potential to double its gas exports under the Baltic Sea to Germany, bypassing traditional routes through Ukraine with which it has poor relations. According to Trump, after the installation of this gas pipeline, Germany will get about 70% of its energy resources from Russian Federation.
It's not clear whether Trump's goal in targeting Merkel this morning was to shame Germany into putting more money into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation or to encourage the Germans to buy more natural gas from the United States.
