European External Action Service

The 3028th Council meeting on General Affairs held in Brussels on 26 July 2010 adopted a decision establishing the European External Action Service (EEAS) and setting out its organisation and functioning (11665/1/10). Creation of the EEAS is one of the most significant changes introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon, which entered into force on 1 December 2009. It is aimed at making the EU's external action more coherent and efficient, thereby increasing the EU's influence in the world. The EEAS will assist Catherine Ashton, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, in fulfilling her mandate. It will work in cooperation with the diplomatic services
of the member states and comprise officials from relevant departments of the General Secretariat of the Council and of the Commission, as well as staff seconded from the national diplomatic services
of the member states.
