EU sources said on Thursday that there were doubts about the summit following US President Joe Biden’s decision to end the security agreement with Australia and the United Kingdom without consulting the EU. The Netherlands was one of the countries that wanted to pursue the Trade and Technology Council (TTC) set up in June.

European Commission Vice President Margaret Vestager wrote on Twitter that the summit would take place on Thursday evening.

France, in particular, was frustrated with the concluded AUKUS defense deal, which resulted in the EU losing the contract for more than 30 billion submarines. The conflict between France and the United States has calmed down somewhat after talks between Biden and President Emmanuel Macron. But other events, such as the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, have shocked the EU over America’s lone behavior.

DTC has ten working groups, which discuss technical cooperation, standards modernization, screening of foreign investment and export controls. According to locals, the two economic powers have already reached several agreements and in recent weeks reached an agreement on standards for artificial intelligence. It will be announced in Pittsburgh.
