America's new Concerns
The US Pt Joe Biden has solemnly and firmly recalled that "America is back". He also emphasized that he would clearly shift away from Pt Trump's "America first". Here are his main statements concerning the new US policy (Re.The Associated Press). First: "we must prepare together for long-term strategic competition with China". And he added that this competition "is going to be stiff". And then with regard to Russia he said that "Pt Putin seeks to weaken the European project and our NATO alliance". It is a way of expressing oneself that has the merit of being frank. Fundamentally, the US remain a reliable and major partner for the EU. But many European leaders have become aware that China could surpass the USA within a decade. And of course, the new global political scenario has to take into account an increasing dominating China. This major shift should push the European towards more unity. The EU Member States should also enhance their cooperation with the USA. Within a tense international context Trans-Atlantic relationship will remain for a long time the backbone of the democratic world.
