248 views

On 19 and 20/11/2010, the EU/US Summit took place in Lisbon. Discussions focussed on global challenges such as the economic recovery, climate change, security and development cooperation. A range of foreign policy issues such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and the Middle East were also addressed and a new impetus was given to the Transatlantic Economic Council and the EU/US Development Dialogue. In the framework of the summit, the EU/US Energy Council met to review progress and delegate new projects to the working groups on security, technology and policy. By working together on energy, the EU and the US aim at increasing their mutual security underpinning stable, reliable and transparent global energy markets. A NATO meeting also took place in Lisbon on 19 and 20/11/2010 to redefine the organization for 21st century threats. Allies discussed new capabilities to defend against modern threats such as ballistic missiles and cyber attacks. In relation to Afghanistan, they reached an agreement with Hamid Karzai, President of Afghanistan, on a long-term partnership that will endure beyond the combat mission.
