European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has called for a close partnership between the European Union and the United States amid Russia’s defiant behavior.
She said this during a speech at the Munich Security Conference, which is held in a video format.
“An increasingly defiant Russia continues to violate international rules at home and abroad. Despite the growing discontent of its own citizens. It depends on us, on the United States and Europe, to strengthen our cooperation again, as proven partners. It’s not just about joining forces, it’s a signal for peace,” von der Leyen said.
