MEPs : EU must raise its game in external policy

If it is to avoid a further loss of global influence, the EU must use its existing foreign policy tools much more efficiently and it must devise a new security strategy, said MEPs during the last PE committee on development cooperation and external relations, hold on 21 February in Brussels.

The discussion centred on the formulation of a European global strategy, which should help frame a clearer mandate for the EU foreign policy chief. The initiative, launched by the foreign ministers of Italy, Poland, Spain and Sweden, will also feed into the discussion on defence by EU heads of state and government at their December summit.
