Biden Joined AJC Initiative Reaffirming Transatlantic Ties


NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- President-Elect Joe Biden's commitment to strong, cooperative relations between the United States and Europe was publicly demonstrated when he joined with 30 notable U.S., European and Canadian leaders in an American Jewish Committee (AJC) statement of support for the Transatlantic Partnership and the core values that bind North America and Europe together.

The full statement, "Reaffirming the Transatlantic Partnership ? A Pledge of Unity and Resolve," was published in The New York Times, in both the U.S. and International editions, in September 2018. The ad, statement and list of signatories are available at www.AJC.org/TransatlanticUnity.

"When some have been questioning the utility of the precious U.S.-European relationship, President-Elect Biden's support for these vital ties, based on common foundational values, is reassuring," said AJC CEO David Harris. "The ties that link this precious fraternity of kindred nations must never be permitted to fray, for they represent the best hope for the ultimate realization of a genuinely peaceful and prosperous world."

The other distinguished signatories included former presidents, vice presidents, prime ministers, national security advisors, secretaries of state, and ministers of defense and foreign affairs, representing 15 countries and a range of political party affiliations. Among them, in addition to Biden, were Secretaries of State George Shultz and Madeleine Albright, British Prime Minister Tony Blair and French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni and German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer. In the aftermath of the statement's publication, another 1000-plus dignitaries, from both sides of the Atlantic, endorsed the text.

The North American and European leaders expressed their united "defense of the precious alliance of democracies?and its treaties, institutions and norms?that has sustained peace and generated prosperity from the Cold War to the present day."

They proclaimed to reaffirm:

AJC, the leading global Jewish advocacy organization, with headquarters in New York, maintains offices across the U.S. and Europe, including its Transatlantic Institute in Brussels, established in 2004.
