EU News 246/2016
High Representative Federica Mogherini was tasked to take forward, together with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the implementation of the first ever joint declaration signed today in Warsaw by the European Union and NATO.
With the joint declaration - signed by Presidents of the European Council and the Commission and Secretary General of NATO - the European Union and NATO are giving a new impetus to their partnership by stepping up cooperation to meet today's unprecedented challenges, such as hybrid threats, cooperation at sea, cyber security, migration and fostering greater research and industrial cooperation in the defence sector.
"We believe that the time has come to give new impetus and new substance to the NATO-EU strategic partnership," stresses the declaration. “The Euro-Atlantic community is facing unprecedented challenges emanating from the South and East. Our citizens demand that we use all ways and means available to address these challenges so as to enhance their security."
