Joint statement from the German Federal Minister of the Interior, the Danish Minister of Justice and the Swedish acting Minister of Justice and Home Affairs | Justitsministeriet

As stated in the declaration of 28 September 2022 by the High Representative on behalf of the European Union, the European Union is deeply concerned about damage to the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines that has resulted in leaks in the international waters of the Baltic Sea. Safety and environmental concerns are of utmost priority. These incidents are not a coincidence and affect us all.

Police authorities in Germany, Denmark and Sweden are in close contact and have established well-functioning and systematic collaboration regarding the Nord Stream incidents. All necessary measures are currently being taken in close coordination. As a next step, it is the intention to set up a Joint Investigation Team in accordance with EU law.
