“These elections were remarkable and the American people have spoken out. I wish you success in carrying out the responsibilities of this high office. I express the wish that you will be a president who unites who is open to a respectful dialogue. I hope that Belgium and the United States will continue to defend our common values of freedom and tolerance.

“You are faced with many challenges, in particular the international fight against terrorism and radicalisation, climate change and a policy for sustainable economic growth. The expectations of people are very high”.The United States is an important ally for freedom, security and stability in the world.
More than ever it is my conviction that a strong and convincing European project is necessary. Belgium will continue to invest in that dynamic.I hope that you will continue to lend your support to the European project and help to guarantee continuing security within the NATO framework.”

Belgium has allocated  75 million EUR for Syria at the International donor conference in London

75 million to allow the refugees to stay in their own region. The international support is intended to improve the refugees’ living conditions. Health, education, better sanitary conditions and also better access to the labour market must be the priority. It is important that we encourage the refugees to stay in the region near their country of origin and to provide dignified living conditions.
