brussels - After more than a year and a half the United States has once again become an ambassador in Brussels to represent American interests in Europe. EU President Donald Tusk and the European Commission received the credentials of Gordon Sondland in Brussels on Monday.

The American businessman with German roots thanked his 'friend' Tusk and said on Twitter to look forward to working with him to 'promote transatlantic security and prosperity. 'He promised to strengthen the' strong partnership between the EU and the US. There are many challenges that come to us. '

Sondland arrives in Belgium in the week that his president also comes to Brussels for a NATO summit. Donald Trump was already on Monday to European countries, especially Germany, with the announcement that they spend too little on defense and have a far too high trade surplus compared to the US.

The last American EU ambassador, Anthony Gardner, left in January 2017. Sondland (61) is the founder of Provenance Hotels. Last year, according to American media, he transferred a million dollars to the inauguration committee of the president. His parents fled Nazi Germany on the eve of the Second World War.
