Madam President,

I take note of Mr Pohlmann’s and Mr Dore’s comments.

As we have mentioned in the past, we are concerned by the alleged acts of sabotage against the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines, which led to worrying gas leaks last September. Switzerland condemns all acts of sabotage against critical infrastructure, including energy infrastructure.

Such actions can have harmful consequences for the supply of the population, the economy and the environment.

We welcome the information provided in the joint letter from Denmark, Germany and Sweden dated July 10. As indicated in this letter, the respective national investigations are ongoing in order to shed light on the facts. We look forward to their conclusions.

I thank you.
