Journalists previewed President Obama’s trip to Brussels for the first U.S.-European Union summit since 2011. Topics included the situation in Ukraine, transatlantic trade talks, and the consequences from former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden’s leaks of NSA surveillance programs. The panelists agreed that a successful response to Russia’s actions in Ukraine would hinge on the U.S. relationship with Germany. Josef Joffe of the German weekly Die Zeit called Russian President Vladimir Putin “the most brilliant strategist on the world stage today.”

This forum titled, “President Obamas Trip to Europe: A Journalist Roundtable Discussion,” was part of a Center for Strategic and International Studies discussion on the future of the European Union. close
