ELN Director Sir Adam Thomson quoted in Gulf Today

Sir Adam Thomson, director of The European Leadership Network (ELN), has been quoted in Gulf Today:

“Even under Biden, as old-school Atlanticist as you can get, it will be a long road back for the United States, and some things have changed forever,” says Adam Thomson, a former U.K. ambassador to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization who now heads the European Leadership Network, a think tank that draws on former defence officials from across the continent.

“Europeans will never be quite so sure of the US security guarantee; Iranians and many others will never completely trust a US signature on a treaty; and everyone will want to be less dependent — if they can — on US trade and the US dollar,” Thomson says.
