[Six Nordic countries have agreed to protect undersea energy infrastructure] On April 9, six Nordic countries - Denmark, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Germany, Norway and the Netherlands - signed an agreement to strengthen protection measures for underwater assets, including gas pipelines and power cables. The explosion of the Nord Stream pipeline in 2022 had a huge impact on Europe's energy supply, and the six countries that signed the contract all border the North Sea, and it is clear that the security of the North Sea is a major energy transit route for these countries are strongly concerned. The six-nation agreement underscores a shared commitment to protect important energy transit routes in the region. The North Sea, with its extensive network of pipelines and cables, plays a vital role in supplying energy to Europe, particularly in terms of oil and gas resources, as well as renewable energy in the future. Key provisions of the agreement include a comprehensive review of current protection and recovery measures and the establishment of a mechanism for sharing critical information among participating countries. By promoting cooperation and coordination, the signatories aim to mitigate the risks posed by potential threats to underwater energy infrastructure, thereby ensuring uninterrupted energy supply throughout the region.
