December 17, 2010 18:02

BRUSSELS — Europe is no longer the United States' main strategic focus and needs to show unity to avoid losing further influence with Washington, EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton warned Friday.

The report comes as the US administration grapples with other foreign policy priorities."We can best exert our influence by ensuring a unified, capable and self-confident Europe," Ashton said in her first report to EU leaders. "When we are an efficient and reliable partner, the US takes us seriously."
