TEXT HIGHLIGHTS

Lew on convincing Democrats to support President Obama on the Trans-Pacific Partnership: “…I make the argument that this is all about creating a better economy for American workers, creating a better future for our young people. … …will the United States be able to compete to sell goods and services in the rest of the world? And will other countries be adhering to the kinds of standards that we adhere to so that the level playing field works in our favor as opposed to us having high standards and them having low standards making it uncompetitive. So I think these are arguments that are real… …I try to convince people who are, kind of convinced there's no argument to be made.”

Lew on why a woman’s image will be on the 10-dollar bill: “…you know, this is a moment in time where it's been over 100 years since a woman has - the image of a woman has been on our currency. The reason the 10-dollar bill was chosen is because we make the decision based on security criteria. …We're going to unveil the 10-dollar bill by 2020, the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage. I don't think we should wait any longer before we put a woman on our currency.” FULL POST

Fareed’s Take on Britain resigning as a global power

Peter Westmacott on the U.K.’s global relevance

TEXT HIGHLIGHTS

Zakaria to Westmacott on the British Parliament’s vote not to support the US military intervention in Syria

ZAKARIA: …If you look at the vote on Syria, the United States threatened force… the use of force against Syria, drew this famous red line, and one of the reasons, perhaps the principal reason Barack Obama changed his mind, in an extremely embarrassing way, was that the British parliament refused to support any U.S. military action… Isn't that a sign that Britain is unwilling to act like a global power?

WESTMACOTT: If you look at what we're doing now, I think the evidence says the opposite. Yes, that vote took place during the holiday season, in August, at short notice. But if you look at what we are doing now in the U.S.-led coalition against ISIL, it is really very significant what we're doing in Iraq. We’re also active in Syria. We're not taking part at the moment in air strikes in Syria. That is, indeed, the case. But we are very engaged in the campaign to get rid of Bashar al-Assad...”

Westmacott on whether Britain will become part of the EU

The Prime Minister's intention…is to ensure that we can get improvements in the way the European Union works. There are a number of changes that we need to negotiate.  But the strategy of the Prime Minister is to go to his colleagues, is to seek those improvements, and to then go back to the British people in a referendum with a strong enough package of improvements that the British people will conclude that their future lies in the European Union.

Westmacott on Europe and the U.S. still having a “special relationship”

WESTMACOTT: …when David Cameron was here a couple of months ago, I remember the President of the United States - I was there in the White House - describing him as a great friend and one of my closest and most trusted partners in the world. And that sounds to me like a pretty special relationship. When I was with the British defense secretary and Ash Carter a few weeks after that, I heard Ash Carter say that the special relationship with the United Kingdom was the cornerstone of the national security of both our countries…. I think if you look at the detail of what we are doing, the military cooperation, the interoperability, the way in which our intelligence services work closely together to counter terrorism and organized criminals and so on, I would not agree with your premise that there is a special relationship which has died or doesn't exist anymore.
