Meeting on 21 June at the Vienna EU-US summit, EU and US leaders committed themselves to strengthen their global partnership by adopting a common line towards global challenges.
"When America and the EU work together, we can accomplish big things," said President Bush. "Working together, the EU and the US may not be enough to solve the many challenges before us. But without the joint efforts of the EU and the US, these global challenges will be impossible to meet."
The leaders discussed key foreign policy issues, global security, strengthening trade and the transatlantic economy, and cooperating further on energy and climate change.
