The EU Ambassador to Korea Michael Reiterer visited Sejong Institute on 1 July and delivered a lecture on the EU-Korea relations and public diplomacy efforts of the Delegation of the European Union to the Republic of Korea. On the European Union, Ambassador underlined that "the EU is not the 'United States of Europe', but the "Union" of independent Member States pooling their sovereignty to work together in the face of greater challenges ahead of us. We are stronger when we are together." Regarding the questions on how to better integrate the EU and how the EU could be positioned when the U.S. and China are perceived as G2, Ambassador Reiterer said "given the size of the EU's single export, import market and its foreign investment, Europe should be seen as the actual G2."
