The EU will seek cooperation with the US to counter Russia and support the transfer of power in Belarus.
вЂњTransatlantic cooperation with respect to the Russian Federation will remain key, in particular with regard to compliance with international law. This includes protecting the territorial integrity and energy security of our eastern partners. Ukraine is a priority partner, where US support is vital for strengthening security and joint ambitious reform programs. In Belarus, we are ready to step up support for a peaceful democratic transfer of power, вЂњ- added to the EC.

We welcome President-elect [Joseph] Biden's proposal to hold a summit on democracy at a time when the pandemic has put a lot of pressure on democracy, freedoms, and values.вЂќ вЂ” summed up the European Commission.
