On November 13, the Atlantic Council’s Program on Transatlantic Relations hosted a public discussion on “US Policy toward the Balkans.” The event featured Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Philip H. Gordon.
The discussion was moderated by Frances G. Burwell, vice president and director of the Atlantic Council’s Program on Transatlantic Relations. The United States has been a key player in the Balkans since negotiating the 1995 Dayton Accords. Just last week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton traveled to the region to demonstrate continued US commitment to the Balkans’ future in the European and Euro-Atlantic community. Assistant Secretary Gordon accompanied Secretary Clinton on the trip and provided unique insights into the visit and the future of US policy towards the region.
