Topic - Vale De Almeida
A frustrated Henry Kissinger once complained about a Europe of more than two dozen countries, divided by the Iron Curtain and each with a different foreign policy challenge for the United States. "If I want to call Europe, who do I call?" asked the German-born secretary of state. Europe finally has an answer.
"Our common values and shared goals are strengthened by our deeply interdependent economies and the long-standing ties between our peoples," he said. "My ambition is to move beyond what exists today to build a stronger and even more positive EU-U.S. agenda with solid bilateral and global pillars."
In remarks prepared for the White House ceremony, Mr. Vale de Almeida stressed the common goals of the U.S.-EU agenda and concerns that the rising economic clout of China will distract Washington from its traditional ties to Europe.
