Den højtstående repræsentant og næstformand for Kommissionen, Federica Mogherini, har forelagt den tredje statusrapport om gennemførelsen af Den Europæiske Unions globale strategi, "EU's globale strategi i praksis — efter tre år og i fremtiden", som skal drøftes af EU's udenrigs- og forsvarsministre på samlingen i Rådet for Udenrigsanliggender den 17. juni 2019 i Luxembourg. I rapporten ses der på de fremskridt, der er gjort i de seneste tre år siden fremlæggelsen af den globale strategi i juni 2016, på fem prioriterede områder — vores Unions sikkerhed, staters og samfunds modstandsdygtighed øst og syd for os, en integreret tilgang til konflikter og kriser, regionale samarbejdsordninger og global styring i det 21. århundrede — og der gives muligheder for vejen frem i de kommende år.
