Languages:

High Representative Federica Mogherini is proposing today, with the support of the Commission, a European Peace Facility (EPF). The EPF is an off-budget fund over the period of the next Multiannual Financial Framework, designed to prevent conflicts, preserve peace and strengthen international security around the world, for the benefit of our citizens and our partners.

In a more challenging global environment, the European Union needs to step up its actions to enhance its ability to prevent conflicts, build peace and strengthen international security. By proposing a new European Peace Facility (EPF) the European Union is taking another step towards cementing its role as a global actor.

The European Union's relations with the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) date back to 1972, recognising a shared commitment to regional integration as a means of fostering regional stability, building prosperity and addressing global issues. Since then, both sides have increased their dialogue and cooperation, and have pursued closer coordination on regional and international issues. Official "Dialogue Relations" - which is the definition ASEAN gives to its privileged partnerships with 10 partners, including the EU - between the EU and ASEAN were established in 1977; the 40th anniversary of these relations was celebrated in 2017.
