H.E. FRANCOIS DELATTRE, FRENCH AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED STATES
To mark the 70th anniversary of the allied D-Day invasion against Nazi forces in World War II, H.E. Francois Delattre, the French Ambassador to the United States, speaks with host Carol Castiel about the increasingly important Franco-US relationship. He discusses US-EU cooperation in countering Russia's aggressive moves in Ukraine (but also addresses the controversial French sale of mistral warships to Moscow which the US opposes), the need to bolster Kiev, policy toward Syria, fighting al-Qaida linked extremists and criminal networks in Mali and CAR, nuclear talks with Iran, results of parliamentary elections in Europe, and the TTIP, Transatlantic trade and Investment Partnership.
