This is the July 23, 2019 briefing titled "Pipeline Politics: Energy and Power in Europe," held before the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe. From the opening statement of Danica R. Starks: "We're here because part of the mission of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe [OSCE] is looking to promote a strong and vibrant transatlantic relationship and foster a peaceful and prosperous European continent. Slovakia, which holds the chairmanship, has named energy security a priority for what the OSCE terms the second dimension, the economic and environmental portfolio. And this briefing is aimed to move the dialog forward on those issues. We acknowledge that energy security, writ large, is multifaceted. It's not just about the pipelines. However, if we look at the headlines we know that what we're terming pipeline politics has become a key issue of the day in discussion here on the Hill, in the administration, and across Europe." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Ed Chow, Colin Cleary, David Koranyi, Efgan Nifti.
