Trump wants to enhance energy cooperation with Central Europe

U.S. President Donald Trump expressed his intention to strengthen energy cooperation of the U.S. and Central Europe on July 6 during the meeting of Three Seas Initiative in Warsaw. The focus should be given to raising U.S. export and building proper infrastructure.

Three Seas Initiative now associates 12 states aiming to lower the gap between energetic sector standards in Western and Central Europe (CE). According to Trump, the increase of U.S. gas and oil exports to CE can help lower dependence on Russia. However, it is necessary to focus on building modern energy infrastructure in CE, especially for the liquefied natural gas (LNG). Slovakia and Hungary expressed their concerns about the possibility of Poland using this deal as a political tool to influence other states. Trump also spoke about the common will to defend European values and population at any cost at the meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda. He most likely referred to the border closing measures to fight the migration crisis or a joint stance towards the threat of Russia and North Korea.
