Ambassador François Delattre talked about France and its unique relationship with the US as illustrated by the success of the recent State visit of President Hollande. He addressed the different challenges our two countries are facing together as friends, allies and partners – international crises, terrorism, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, climate change and promotion of economic growth. He also stressed the dynamism of our bilateral economic relationship and our growing cooperation in the fields of science, research and education. Last but not least, he explained why a successful negotiation of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is so important for both the EU and the US.
