Dear all,

apologies for the belated reaction. Just a small clarification.

The Statement of the European Commission of 15 March which you quoted
(available at http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_STATEMENT-14-70_en.htm)
clearly says the Commission will work "together with the US *and all global
stakeholders*" (emphasis added). I'm at a loss to understand how you would
interpret that as a "EC+EU government-led solution".



I speak only for myself. Sometimes I do not even agree with myself. Keep it
in mind.
