Challenges and Choices: Priorities for the Transatlantic Partnership

The American Council on Germany (ACG) and AICGS were pleased to host a breakfast discussion as part of the 2017 Munich Security Conference with Dr. Norbert Röttgen, Chairman of the Bundestag’s Foreign Relations Committee, and General David Petraeus, former Director of the CIA.  The off-the-record discussion touched on the challenges confronting the German-American relationship in 2017, ranging from Russian aggression, to Chinese competition, to conflict in the Middle East and Afghanistan.  As AICGS President Jack Janes noted, the challenges we face span far beyond our two countries, but German-American cooperation is needed in today’s globalized world.
