US and EU feel the love on Valentine's Day
WASHINGTON (AFP) - Love was in the air at the State Department on Thursday when United States Secretary of State John Kerry pledged to the European Union's Ms Catherine Ashton that Washington would forever remain true to Europe.
Even though the US is wooing Asian nations as part of President Barack Obama's pivot towards the continent, Mr Kerry insisted European countries should not feel they are being jilted.
"The rebalancing that President Obama is engaged in does not and will not come at the expense of any relationship with Europe whatsoever," Mr Kerry vowed, as he headed into talks with EU foreign policy chief Ashton.
In fact, he said, there was enough room for everyone.
