0

European Council President Charles Michel on Wednesday required the United States and European Union to make “new founding pact” for their overseas relations.

To do as such, he welcomed Joe Biden – who is set to be confirmed as president of the US on Wednesday – to Brussels for a summit.

“Today is an opportunity to rejuvenate our transatlantic relationship which has greatly suffered in the last 4 years,” he said.

“On the first day of his mandate, I address a solemn proposal to the new US president: Let’s build a new founding pact for a stronger Europe, for a stronger America, and for a better world,” Michel said.

This should help multilateral relations, tackle Covid-19 and climate change, modify both alliance’s economies and guarantee fair trade, just as address security issues.

Michel didn’t expand on details of the format of the new agreement.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen sent out a comparative tone, saying the EU was prepared for a reset in overseas relations with the US.

To this end, she proposed a few areas of collaboration, for instance making another trade and technology council.
