President Of European Council Tusk, President Of European Commission Juncker Advocating Cooperation With United States In Defending Territorial Integrity Of Ukraine

President of the European Council Donald Tusk and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker advocate cooperation with the United States in defending the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Ukrainian News Agency learned this from a joint letter of Tusk and Juncker to congratulate Donald Trump on his election as the next President of the United States.

"We extend our sincere congratulations on your election as the 45th President of the United States of America. The strategic partnership between the European Union and the United States is rooted in our shared values of freedom, human rights, democracy and a belief in the market economy. Over the years, the European Union and the United States have worked together to ensure peace and prosperity for our citizens and for people around the world," it reads.

"Today, it is more important than ever to strengthen transatlantic relations. Only by cooperating closely can the EU and the US continue to make a difference when dealing with unprecedented challenges such as Da'esh, the threats to Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, climate change and migration," the Presidents wrote.

"Fortunately, the EU - US strategic partnership is broad and deep: from our joint efforts to enhance energy security and address climate change, through EU - US collaboration on facing threats to security in Europe's Eastern and Southern neighborhoods, and to the negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership - we should spare no effort to ensure that the ties that bind us remain strong and durable," the letter reads.

"We would take this opportunity to invite you to visit Europe for an EU - US Summit at your earliest convenience. This conversation would allow for us to chart the course of our relations for the next four years," they concluded.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, Republican candidate Donald Trump has won the 58th presidential election in the United States.
