VP Kamala Harris to go to France Next Week

Vice President Kamala Harris is set to make a diplomatic visit to France next week. This trip will be her third international trip as vice president.

On this trip, Harris is set to meet up with lots of different world leaders.

“This is a great opportunity for her to continue to develop her partnership, not just with [French] President [Emmanuel] Macron, but with what we expect will probably be 25 other world leaders,” a senior administration official said.

What else would Harris be doing in Paris? 

Reports say that Harris will deliver an address to the Paris Peace Forum, a conference that focuses on global governance issues, on Nov. 11.

“You can expect the vice president in her speech to focus her remarks on some big, converging global crises … in particular, the challenge of rising inequality and the need for leaders around the world to join together and take bold action,” a second administration official told reporters.

The next day, she will participate in an international conference aimed at showing support for upcoming national elections in Libya, a country that has struggled with civil war and instability for the last decade.

She will also hold a bilateral meeting with Macron, part of a full-court effort to repair the United States’ relationship with France, which suffered a rocky patch after a U.S. deal on nuclear-powered submarines with Australia shut France out of a contract.

“The vice president’s visit is sort of the last straw of this procession of high-level American officials who who are coming, passing by Paris or meeting with the French in order to remind everybody that they value the French-American relationship, that they value the bilateral relationship in the context of Europe,” said Celia Belin, a visiting fellow in the Center on the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution.

Harris will start her trip in Paris on Nov. 9 with a tour of the Institut Pasteur. Her mother, a breast cancer researcher, worked with scientists from the world-renowned center in the 1980s.
