The member states of the European Union have been seeking a closer relationship with the United States. In this world, tensions are rising, and these two entities have to decide how their relationship will be used to maintain their influence. The EU wants to assert itself as a sovereign entity in the modern world but also have the backing of US hegemony as an ally. Looking at the EU-US relationship from the US perspective is essential in understanding the situation and what steps should be taken to help foster this relationship. Having access to US officials who are internationally based to help answer this question is essential to furthering this process.
What are the US’ goals in their relationship with Europe? What will be the EU-US approach towards China? What are the schematics of EU-US trade deals? What are the US’ plans to help correct the misdeeds that past administrations have imposed against Europe? What will be the geopolitical implications of the Taliban’s rule? Will Russia, China, and Iran try to make geostrategic gains vis-a-vis the US in Afghanistan and the adjoining region? What steps are needed now concerning Afghanistan?
