    {From the Introduction]. As Jacuqes Delors' Commission of the European Communities (EC) was renewed in Brussels for two years, Copenhagen started its six months term of Presidency of the Council, and Bill Clinton's Administration took office in Washington for four years European-American relations did not figure prominently on the policy agendas on either side of the Atlantic. In his "Working Program for 1993-1994" and his speech to the European Parliament, the Commission President devoted a large part to "acting on world level" but except for a small reference to the Uruguay Round payed little attention to aspects of particular Atlantic concern. (1) The same applied to the "Objectives and Priorities of the Danish Presidency" as they were layed out in a statement by Foreign Minister Ellemann-Jensen before the European Parliament, (2) The new US President in both his inaugural address and his "state of the union message" was hardly more specific. (3) While Delors as well as Ellemann-Jensen at least refered to the Joint Declarations between the Community and the United States and Canada of 1990 as a framework within which the Europeans intend to develop their relations and cooperation with these two countries, Clinton did not even include the EC (or NATO for that matter) in his programmatic deliberations.
