Remarks by Louis Susman, America’s ambassador to the UK, at the European Parliament, 25 January 2011:

“I want to stress that the UK needs to remain in the EU.

“The US does not want to see Britain’s role in the EU diminished in any way.

“The message I want to convey today is that we want to see a stronger EU, but also a stronger British participation within the EU.

Susman, who took up his current post a year ago, added, “This is crucial if, together, we are going to meet all the global challenges facing us, including climate change and security.

“But let’s be clear: all key issues must run through Europe.”

Susman, who was addressing a group of British MEPs at a private event in parliament, also praised the so-called “special relationship” between the US and Britain, saying it was “stronger than ever.”
