Contribution to the commemorative publication marking the 30th anniversary of the Congressional Study Group on Germany

The Congressional Study Group on Germany is celebrating its 30th anniversary. This in itself shows its members’ commitment to fostering the close relations between our two countries and filling them with vibrancy. This is an aim which I wholeheartedly share. I am very grateful for our meetings, which have always guaranteed a valuable exchange of views on issues of common interest.

An open and trusting dialogue – that is precisely what makes the links between parliamentarians on both sides of the Atlantic such an important pillar of the German-American partnership and friendship.
