Camp David to Chicago: The British Perspective on the Summits

His Excellency Sir Peter Westmacott, British Ambassador to the United States

Sir Peter Westmacott at The Chicago Council on Global Affairs

This spring, the United States will host both the NATO and G8 Summits. With the second-largest NATO troop contingent in Afghanistan–behind the United States–and the third largest economy in the European Union, the United Kingdom will play an important role at the meetings. What are Britain’s positions on the state of the global economy, the eurozone crisis, the new U.S. global military strategy, and the security situation in Afghanistan? Join The Chicago Council for a conversation with the newly appointed British Ambassador to the United States on the U.S.-U.K. special relationship and the British perspective on the G8 and NATO Summits.
