Letter to Van Rompuy on the EU-US Summit

18/11/2011 – The EU-US Summit on 28 November is set to assess the progress on addressing global challenges and strengthening the security of citizens since last year’s Summit in Lisbon. This must be done in a frank and honest manner, with both EU and US leaders looking at whether their “conviction that respect for fundamental rights and freedoms and joint efforts to strengthen security cooperation are mutually reinforcing” – as stated in the Joint Declaration adopted in Lisbon – is fulfilled in practice.
