EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini on Monday responded to U.S. President Donald Trump’s remarks against the bloc.
On Sunday, Trump said: “Now, you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe,” during an interview with CBS News.
Speaking to reporters ahead of the Foreign Affairs Council in Brussels, Mogherini said: “If I was a journalist, I would probably ask him who does he [Trump] consider his friends.”
“We have very clear in mind who our friends are, the United States for sure and I have said many times that a change in the administration does not change the friendship between countries and peoples,” Mogherini said.
She added: “And for sure, we consider the United States friends, partners – close friends and partners. We will always do that.
“So, we have very clear in mind who our friends are and I hope the U.S. administration has clear ideas on who their friends are as well.”
President of the European Council Donald Tusk said: “America and the EU are best friends. Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news.”
