Press Statement

June 3, 2010


We welcome the European Union Council of Ministers’ adoption of the joint U.S.-EU Statement on Counterterrorism. We and our partners in the EU are committed to working together to combat the threat of terrorism, bringing to that effort our common values of freedom and democracy, and our respect for international law, the rule of law, and human rights. The joint statement highlights that commitment and those shared values and provides a framework for deepening our already close and productive counterterrorism relationship. We thank our European colleagues, particularly the Spanish Presidency, for their willingness to join with us in issuing this statement and, more broadly, for deepening transatlantic cooperation in counterterrorism. We look forward to the EU’s continuing partnership on this challenging issue.
