SECRETARY CLINTON: Good afternoon. I am delighted to welcome Minister Moeller here to the State Department. I had the opportunity of meeting him and working with him during our sessions in Brussels last week. And it is so important to highlight and underscore our relationship with Denmark. Denmark has been one of our strongest, you know, partners and allies on a range of issues. And we’re going to be discussing some of those and looking toward our future cooperation. So, welcome.

FOREIGN MINISTER MOELLER: Thank you very much. I’m very glad to be here. I’ve been working with Senator Clinton before, and now with – sorry, Secretary of State.

SECRETARY CLINTON: That’s all right. (Laughter.)

FOREIGN MINISTER MOELLER: And I am very glad to be here and continue our cooperation, and we had a very good meeting at NATO the other week. So I am sure that the transatlantic bonds, the Danish-American bonds, will continue and be strengthened. Thank you.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Thank you. Thank you so much, Minister Moeller. Thank you all very much.
