During a speech at a U.K. military base on Wednesday, Biden failed to address the criticisms for waiving sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. Instead, he said he doesn’t want a conflict with Russia.
“We are not seeking conflict with Russia; we want a stable, predictable relationship,” stated the Democrat. “Our two nations share incredible responsibilities and among them ensuring strategic stability in upholding arms control agreements. I take that responsibility seriously. ”
Biden went on to warn Russia to not engage in “harmful activities” while stating the country may face “robust and meaningful consequences.”
