Biden to Address Video Summit of EU Leaders on Thursday

BRUSSELS — U.S. President Joe Biden will join a video summit of European Union leaders on Thursday to discuss improving trans-Atlantic cooperation after four years of worsening relations during the Trump administration. 

"Time to rebuild our transatlantic alliance," EU Council President and summit host Charles Michel said in a twitter message. 

The 27 EU leaders have a regular two-day summit starting Thursday, where they will discuss everything from vaccine strategy to relations with Russia. 

They overwhelmingly welcomed the election of Biden last November. 

Earlier this month, a first phone call between Biden and EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen clinched a trade breakthrough with a four-month suspension of tariffs used in the longstanding Airbus-Boeing dispute. 

Von der Leyen has invited Biden to a global health summit in Rome on May 21 to streamline the fight against COVID-19, the common enemy that has killed over a million people in the EU and the U.S. combined. 


ATHENS - Turkey's pro-government newspaper The Daily Sabah, an outlet for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, repeated allegations that Greece is harboring dozens of terrorists with plans to bring down the administration.
