EU President Charles Michel has invited upcoming US President Joe Biden to meet with EU leaders in Brussels next year.
Then they can discuss “rebuilding” the strong ties between the US and Europe, Michel said.
Michel had a telephone conversation with Biden on Monday, for the first time since his election victory.
In it, he also thanked him for his “clear support” for the divorce agreement that the EU concluded with the United Kingdom last year, but which the British government has been tinkering with in recent months.
Outgoing US President Donald Trump is a warm supporter of Brexit, but with Biden, there seems to be a different course.
Michel further welcomed “the president-elect’s strong commitment to America’s allies and his support for European cooperation”.
The Chair of the European Council of Heads of Government and Heads of State proposed to Biden “rebuild a strong transatlantic alliance based on common interests and shared values”.
