NATO, EU invite Biden to rebuild transatlantic ties

BRUSSELS, Nov 24 – The head of NATO and a top European Union official on Monday invited U.S. President-elect Joe Biden to rebuild transatlantic ties and meet with Washington’s European allies next year.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and European Council President Charles Michel, in phone calls with Biden, congratulated him on his election win and invited him to visit the military alliance’s headquarters in Brussels, which is also the hub of the 27-nation EU.

Stoltenberg thanked Biden “for being a long-standing supporter of NATO and the transatlantic relationship,” according to a statement by the military alliance, while Michel “proposed to rebuild … strong transatlantic” ties, his office said.

As the EU grapples with the historic setback of Brexit, the bloc’s statement also highlighted Biden’s support for preserving peace and stability on the sensitive Irish border despite Britain leaving the EU.
