US reinstates EU’s diplomatic ranking following downgrade

Brussels, The United States has reinstated the European Union's diplomatic ranking in Washington, its Brussels representation

announced Monday, following a downgrade that lasted several months.

"The EU is a uniquely important organization, and one of America's most valuable partners in ensuring global security and prosperity," US Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland said in a statement issued Monday.

The EU representation in Washington will, with immediate effect, be placed on a par with national embassies, the statement noted.

"From generating jobs and economic growth, to setting international standards, to keeping destabilizing regimes in check, the US and the EU are a strong force when we work together," Sondland said in Monday's statement.
