Spain, Hungary and Belgium have agreed to cooperate during the period they will each head the EU.
The challenges are many and amongst them there is one that we should monitor with interest: inter-government cooperation in the sharing of information and intelligence. I use both words deliberately. In the modern computerized world, information - masses of information, is readily available to everyone, private citizen and governments alike…however, intelligence is that information which has been collected, processed and analyzed…usually by governments. It is this process of collection, analysis and dissemination that makes information useable, i.e. intelligence…and also probably sensitive and classified.

It is worth noting that the American foreign policy is primarily responsible for the anti-American attitudes that various segments of the Greek society have displayed overtime. Therefore, it is always interesting to find out what the Greek perceptions and beliefs of the new US President are.
