This was reported by Politico newspaper, citing a senior representative of the US administration.

“During the telephone call this week, the leaders had heated disagreements on topics such as NATO, the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline between Russia and Germany, and relations with China,” the text says.

It is noted that the White House has not yet commented on this information.

Previously, the Akademik Chersky pipe layer, which was considered as one of the options for completing the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, returned to the port of Mukran in northern Germany.
