The European Union Wants to Revive the Relationship With the US Under Biden
The European Union is taking advantage of the upcoming change of power in the United States to re-establish ties between the two traditional allies.
“If the transatlantic partnership is strong, then the EU and the US are stronger. It is time to re-establish contact,” said European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.
Relations between Brussels and Washington have soured under President Donald Trump.
The electoral victory of Democrat Joe Biden and his Vice President Kamala Harris, a new geopolitical and economic reality and a “more assertive and capable” EU, offer an excellent opportunity to revitalize international cooperation, says Brussels.
The committee proposes four policy areas to work together: health, including combating the Covid-19 pandemic, climate change and sustainability, trade and strengthening democracy.
