Talk:United States–European Union relations
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
I am not even sure if this article should even exist. There are no diplomatic relations between the United States and the European Union since in fact, ambassadors from each of the 27 member countries represent their own respective governments and not one single entity as the EU itself. Furthermore, the United States does not have an ambassador or an embassy in Brussels. So there are no "EU-US relations."
@Kildruf - The EU Ambassador to the United States represents all member states for areas for which the EU has competence (Trade, Justice and Home Affairs, etc). Furthermore, the U.S. has had diplomatic relations with the EU and its predecessors since 1953. The first U.S. Mission to the European Communities was established in Brussels in 1961. I'm not sure where you got your information. Gormami (talk) 15:20, 19 June 2011 (UTC)Gormami
In keeping with Wikipedia Guidelines and formalities, the title of this article should be changed to European Union-United States Relations as this is the correct alphabetical order.
Also, the EU does maintain diplomatic relations with the US and has a delegation to the US in Washington DC. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Johnxsmith (talk • contribs) 17:52, 24 October 2013 (UTC)
