Denmark sees the Nord Stream pipeline leaks as "deliberate actions," Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said Tuesday during a press statement, her office confirmed to CNN.
The Danish prime minister's comments follow the discovery of three leaks in the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipelines near the Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea.
"We do not see a direct military threat against Denmark," Frederiksen added.
When asked by a reporter if she saw the incident as a declaration of war, Frederiksen replied "no," her office said.
"It is our assessment that the leaks are not caused by accidents but by blasts," the Danish energy minister Dan Jørgensen also said Tuesday, his office confirmed to CNN.
Jørgensen added that the damaged pipelines are at 70 to 80 meters in depth and that he expects the Nord Stream gas leaks to last "at least a week," his office said.
