On February 24 John Kerry will make his first international trip as Secretary of State, including stops in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar. What will be the economic and political impacts globally of the announced trade alliance between the U.S. and Europe? Do recent military interventions in Libya and Mali provide models for the future of transatlantic alliances like NATO? How will the U.S. and Europe address continuing instability in the MENA region following the Arab Awakening?

Experts on Europe, transatlantic relations and U.S.-Middle East relations answer media questions in a conference call. Full audio and transcripts of this conference are available on this page.
