US Seeks to Improve Transatlantic Relations on Biden’s Trip to France

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has arrived in Paris on his first trip to France after the formation of the new AUKUS alliance between the US, UK and Australia last month that raised tensions among the transatlantic allies.

Experts suspect Blinken, who has strong personal ties to France, used the trip to improve American relations with the country.

The top American diplomat will chair the Council of Ministers Meeting at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) scheduled to take place on October 5 and 6. The meeting also commemorates the 60th anniversary of the OECD.

Blinken will hold a bilateral meeting with French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian in Paris.

France will next year assume the leadership of the Council of the European Union from 1 January to 30 June 2022.

“Secretary of Foreign Affairs Blinken will also meet with his French counterparts to continue discussions on strengthening vital American-French relations.”

The speakers will discuss issues including security from the Indo-Pacific region, the climate crisis, economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, transatlantic relations, and working with our allies and partners to respond to global challenges and opportunities. reads a statement from the US State Department last Friday (1/10).jm / em)
