Top EU diplomats are calling for more robust European defense and a greater European voice in world affairs as Donald Trump, whose isolationist, protectionist promises have worried many in Europe, prepares to assume the U.S. presidency. With many question marks around Trump's foreign policy plans, EU foreign ministers agreed Monday at talks in Brussels on the need to strengthen Europe's role in world affairs until the future of trans-Atlantic relations becomes clearer.The top diplomats were set to join defense ministers later to discuss cooperation with NATO, whose future is uncertain after Trump suggested Washington could abandon its NATO commitments, which include mutual defense in case of an attack.Perhaps Europe's most pressing problem is to understand how Trump wants to deal with Russian President Vladimir Putin.British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson insisted Monday that Trump's presidency could be a "moment of opportunity" for Europe.
