WASHINGTON, D.C. – The following statement can be attributed to Marty Durbin, President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global Energy Institute.

“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce commends President Biden and European Commission President von der Leyen for their commitment to enhanced cooperation on energy security as outlined in their joint statement today. Energy security is national security, and the United States is well positioned to assist European allies in a manner that ensures reliable and affordable energy for all while also advancing shared environmental goals. Greater EU access to abundant U.S. natural gas will diversify Europe’s sources of supply and strengthen energy security for years to come. We look forward to working with the White House and the European Commission to advance specific actions to facilitate this effort and protect allies - in Europe, Asia, and elsewhere - from potential supply disruptions.”
