The European Union said it looked forward to better relations with the United States under the leadership of President-elect Joe Biden.
EU foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell warmly congratulated “Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris for their historic victory.”
“It is not a secret, (either), that in the past 4 years things have become complicated,” Borrell told legislators at the European Parliament. “You can rest assured that we are ready to engage fast with the new administration.”
But he also alluded to the political problems remaining in the U.S.
“We still have to wait until (the) 20th of January because as you know very well it is a quite long transition ahead. Let’s hope it is not going to be a bumpy transition,” Borrell said.
