U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the recent turbulence in European gas prices only underscores the need to transition to more sustainable forms of energy, and said he hoped Russia wouldn’t use its supplies as a weapon.

High energy prices “reinforce the need for a transition to new forms of energy, particularly sustainable energy, and at the same time they reinforce the need for energy diversification,” Blinken said in an interview with Bloomberg Television in Paris on Wednesday. “But we need to do more and go further.”
