After sharp protests from Brussels have taken the United States a decision on the diplomatic devaluation of the EU representation in Washington, D.C. and back again. The EU representation will be treated once again as a nation-state, informed the US state Department. The EU is a "unique and important organization," and "one of America's most valuable partners", if it is going to secure security and prosperity in the world.
The EU had been treated in Washington, in the end only as an international organization. This meant that she stood in the log Aryan ranking among the nation-States. The EU representatives in Washington are thus, for example, in the case of events in the back rows of banished.
U.S. President Donald Trump has deteriorated the relationship between Washington and Brussels. Trump expressed repeatedly referred disparagingly to the EU. The EU fought back against decisions of the U.S. government. So she stood by the nuclear agreement with Iran, and decided to respond with retaliatory tariffs on new US tariffs. The Protocol downgrade was seen as revenge for that. The repeal signals a relaxation of the relationship between Washington and Brussels.
The decision came two days before important trade talks between the EU and the USA. On Wednesday, EU trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström and the US want to trade representative Robert Lighthizer discuss how the U.S. tariffs on imported cars from the EU are threatened may be averted.
