In next weeks program...
The United States and Germany share a long and steadfast friendship. Both countries are allies within NATO and share fundamental values as well as common interests. Recently, disputes over defense spending, tariffs and sanctions have put a strain on this partnership. At the same time, the major global challenges of our time, including the COVID-19 pandemic, global warming and international terrorism require the United States, Germany, and Europe to stand together. Please join German Ambassador Emily Haber for a discussion on the future of this important partnership following the recent US presidential elections.
