EU and US Lawmakers Begin Round of Meetings in Washington

WASHINGTON – Legislators of the European Union (EU) and the United States will hold several meetings between Monday and Wednesday this week, at which they will discuss such matters as their bilateral relations, foreign policies and the economy.

The EU ambassador to the United State, David O’Sullivan, was in charge of inaugurating the 81st EU-US Interparliamentary Meeting and the Transatlantic Legislators’ Dialogue (TLD) with an address to a group of European lawmakers who arrived Sunday in Washington.

The purpose of the meetings is to strengthen institutional relations between the legislatures on both sides of the Atlantic and to evaluate bilateral cooperation at the different roundtables scheduled for the event.

The growing threat from North Korea, the current tension between the Donald Trump government and Iran due to the US possibly pulling out of the international nuclear accord, and the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela are some of the principal subjects to be discussed.

According to the agenda released by the European Parliament, the delegation planned to visit the US State Department on Monday.

There they were to be received by the State Department’s Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Conrad Tribble and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Andean, Brazilian, and the Southern Cone Affairs Michael Fitzpatrick, who are expected to lead a conversation about Venezuela.

The European parliamentarians will continue the day with a diplomatic event at the US Chamber of Commerce, then on to the White House National Security Council, before closing the day with a series of meetings at the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR).

During their visit to the Capitol, the European legislators will attend various working sessions related to the international state of affairs, security and trade.
