Michel wrote about this on Twitter.
“I invited the President of the United States to participate in our summit to share with us his vision of our future cooperation. It’s time to restore our transatlantic alliance!”, — wrote Michel.
On the eve of the summit, Michel also held a telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
He stated that there are differences on many issues and noted that relations with Russia can develop in a different direction only if there is steady progress on issues such as the implementation of the Minsk Agreements, an end to hybrid, and cyber-attacks on member states and respect for human rights.
At the summit on Thursday and Friday, EU leaders are due to discuss the pandemic, especially the problematic vaccination program, as well as a number of other topics, including a strategic discussion of policy towards Russia.
