Denmark wants to amend law on Russian pipeline

A new legislative proposal in Denmark would enable the government to reject Russian gas pipelines in Danish territorial waters. But the law will not take effect until the new year.

Denmark wants to be able to deny Russian gas pipelines access to Danish waters, states the country's government, which has presented a legislative proposal to amend the law regarding the continental shelf.

This type of prior approval would only be granted if "it is compatible with the interests of the nation's foreign, security, and defense policies."
