(MENAFN) Danish Premier Mette Frederiksen on Tuesday stated that it is tough to believe that the gas leaks on the Russian Nord Stream pipelines are a "coincidence."

"It is unusual and I would like to say that we from ... the government ... and the authorities are taking this very seriously,” the premier informed a local news outlet DR.

Enquired if the three leaks are caused by someone, Frederiksen stated that it cannot be “ruled out.”
