The Kremlin on Friday called for the launch of the controversial Nord Stream 2 pipeline "as soon as possible" after Russia announced the completion of the project earlier in the day.

"We are all interested in this happening as soon as possible," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters when asked how soon Germany could issue permission to begin supplies.
