(CNSNews.com) - At a photo opportunity with European Parliament President Antonio Tajani on Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she saw the U.S. relationship with Europe as a “very strong priority to our economic, our national, our cultural security.”

“We earlier shared the pride we take in our Italian-American roots,” Pelosi said as she appeared with Tajani.

“We just had a productive meeting with the European Parliament Transatlantic [Legislators’] Dialogue,” she said.

“In our meeting this afternoon,” Pelosi said, “I look forward to continuing our conversation: whether it’s about trade and issues about our mutual economic security, whether it’s about human rights and anti-Semitism, democracy and protecting the integrity of our elections, whether it’s about issues that talk about--look to the Europeans for their leadership on addressing the climate crisis, which they’re ahead of us on and we learn a lot from you on that--and about security, in terms of strengthening our NATO relationship.

“So,” she said, “it’s about impressing upon each other, certainly from our standpoint, bipartisan support for the transatlantic relationship as being a very strong priority to our economic, our national and our cultural security.”
