UN Security Council convenes over Nord Stream pipeline blasts

(MENAFN) The UN Security Council will hold an urgent conference to talk over leaks in the Nord Stream gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea which the EU declared was a ''result of a deliberate act.''

The 15-member Council will meet on Friday upon Russia's appeal, on the words of diplomats.

Numerous European leaders blamed Russia of triggering the explosions and called the leaks "sabotage."

Russia, nevertheless, refused any responsibility with the Kremlin stating that accusations on Russia's participation in the suspected sabotage are "predictable, absurd and stupid."

Denmark's energy agency confirmed Tuesday three leakages on the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 gas pipelines.

The Russia-owned Nord Stream 2 pipeline, originating in Russia and passing under the Baltic Sea to Germany, was created to multiply the volume of gas by two.
