NATO Defence Ministers are meeting in Brussels to discuss key security challenges. Today, 6 December they endorsed over 40 proposals in 7 areas of cooperation: Countering hybrid threats, operational cooperation including maritime issues; cyber security and defence, defence capabilities, parallel and coordinated exercises and defence and security capacity-building.

The European Union and NATO today started a new, important era of cooperation, by agreeing on a set of 42 concrete proposals in seven different areas identified by the joint declaration signed in Warsaw in July.

The proposals were developed jointly and endorsed today, in parallel, by the Foreign Ministers of NATO meeting in Brussels as well as the Council of the European Union.
