Brussels, 23 July 2020,
Member of the European Parliament Zeljana Zovko has been appointed as the EPP shadow standing rapporteur for the European Parliament in relation with the United States. In this capacity, she will follow the developments in that country. “This position holds a great responsibility as the United States are an important partner of the European Union and I look forward to contribute to the improvement of the transatlantic relations,” Zovko said. According to Zovko, the upcoming Presidential elections in November this year are already an important event for these transatlantic relations. They will serve as a moment of reflection for the European Union on its stance towards the United States for the next couple of years. The effects of the pandemic in the U.S. are also an important factor for our current relations and need our close attention, Zovko concluded.
