This has been a very interesting debate. We are very much aware that the world is experiencing a shift in the geopolitical balance of power. There is a big bi-polarity between China and the United States on one side. And then, on the other side, there is a multi-polarity of actors. And Europeans have to act.

Europeans have to create a common strategic culture to share the challenges they are facing. This is what the Strategic Compass is about. The Council asked me to continue working to present this Strategic Compass to the Ministers of Defense [of the European Union] in November, which will be our answer to these challenges.
