The European Union's foreign policy chief says he expects U.S. President-elect Barack Obama to move quickly to address top trans-Atlantic goals, including Middle East peace, negotiations with Iran and slowing global warming.

Javier Solana also says the appointment of Hillary Rodham Clinton as secretary of state would be well received in Europe.

Solana told reporters in Washington Friday he hopes Obama will make Middle East peace and negotiations for a new global climate control treaty early priorities of his administration.

Solana spoke with Vice President-elect Joe Biden by phone this week. He said he expected the new administration to support the current international approach of offering Iran incentives to stop enriching uranium, while pursuing sanctions.
