Austin: US committed to Europe's security

United States Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin stated on Tuesday after his meeting with French Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly that Washington remains committed to Europe's security and reaffirmed the strength of the relationship between the two countries.

Austin also had a joint encounter with Parly and her German and British counterparts, Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer and Ben Wallace, and discussed "how we will adapt to face increasing regional and global security challenges."

Austin's meetings come after US President Joe Biden's summit with the leaders of the European Union, Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel, during which they made "significant steps forward" in their relations.
