Summary: EU-US Summit Declaration (Brussels: 21 June 2006)
VIENNA SUMMIT DECLARATION
"We, the leaders of the European Union (EU) and the United States of America (U.S.), met today in Vienna to respond to the concerns of our citizens for peace, security, stability and prosperity in an increasingly globalised world.
We welcome that over the past year our Transatlantic Partnership has delivered real results as shown by the political and economic Progress Reports we issued today. We remain committed to finding common or complementary lines of action in many areas. Over the last year there have been many examples of how productive our relationship is, in the Middle East, Iran, the Western Balkans, Belarus, on the frozen conflicts, and Sudan, as well as in our efforts to promote transatlantic trade and
investment under last Summit's Economic Initiative.
We have decided to further strengthen our strategic Partnership by adopting a number of priority actions to support our cooperation in the following four areas:
• Promoting peace, human rights and democracy worldwide;
• Confronting global challenges, including security;
• Fostering prosperity and opportunity;
• Promoting strategic cooperation on energy and energy security, climate change and sustainable development."
