Crisis teams have been convened in Denmark and Sweden after the damage to the Nord Stream gas pipelines under the Baltic Sea.

When the leaks became known, the crisis management team, in which several ministries and authorities were involved, was called together, Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde told the Aftonbladet newspaper on Tuesday.

Copenhagen – The Danish Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod contacted her, virtual meetings are planned for the evening.

When asked exactly what happened, she said: "I don't want to speculate on it.

You have to be very sure of what happened and how it affects our safety.”

In neighboring Denmark, representatives of several authorities also gathered in the national operational staff to discuss how to deal with the leaks in the Nord Stream 1 and 2 lines.

The Danish National Police announced this to the broadcaster DR.

Kofod confirmed this after a meeting in the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Danish Parliament.

This staff meets in Denmark, among other things, in the event of major crises, disasters and terrorist attacks and is intended to ensure cooperation between the authorities in such situations.

A total of three leaks had previously been discovered on the Nord Stream 1 and 2 gas pipelines.

They occurred near the Baltic Sea island of Bornholm, partly in Danish and partly in Swedish waters.
