The article's purpose is to examine Transatlantic relations in the field of defense and their subsequent interactions in the post-Brexit era. The exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union and Joe Biden’s electoral victory constitute substantial facts that will undoubtedly alter relations in the Euro-Atlantic space. Joe Biden’s actions already mark a shift in United States foreign policy, in contrast to his predecessor, Donald Trump. The United States under President Biden is moving in towards NATO reconciling their relationship, meanwhile European and Transatlantic relations are affected by the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union. In a parallel manner, three decades after the end of the Cold War, the international system has been in a constant state of change, about global redistribution of power. Under the above circumstances, the United States and their European allies will have to redefine their relations.
