It is nothing if not surprising that these parties, and not the U.S. and the European Union, would be negotiating such an agreement.One positive development this year came in March, when the EU and Turkey signed an agreement to address the refugee crisis. For the EU to lose a country as militarily and economically important as the U.K. is bad enough; but to lose a founding EU member state, such as France, would be tragic.This will not lessen the challenge for EU governments in the year ahead.This holds peril for U.S.-EU relations.The coming year will be particularly important for Europe. Relations between the EU and the U.S. must remain strong, rooted in mutual respect for democracy, freedom, and human rights. The biggest uncertainty of all is whether this is simply the end of another year, or the end of a geopolitical epoch.
