Summary/Abstract: The written presentations of our panellists – Roberto Menotti (Research Fellow, Aspen Institute Italia), Dana Allin (Senior Fellow, IISS,London) and Yuri Fedorov (Deputy Director of the Institute for Applied International Studies, Moscow) – were completed by a number of remarks, having been urged by the Chairman to dwell on the following issues:• the nature of the EU’s strategic interests and notably the importance of distant contingencies – such as Korea and Kashmir – as compared with Europe’s ‘near abroad’;• the impact of the difference in strategic cultures between the EU and the US (as well as within the EU itself); and• the long-term evolution of EU-US strategic relations.
