Shared Vision, Common Action: A Stronger Europe”. A Global Strategy for the European Union’s Foreign and Security Policy. European Union Externa Action. 28.06.2016
Foreword by Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Vice-President of the European Commission:
The purpose, even existence, of our Union is being questioned. Yet, our citizens and the world need a strong European Union like never before. Our wider region has become more unstable and more insecure. The crises within and beyond our borders are affecting directly our citizens’ lives. In challenging times, a strong Union is one that thinks strategically, shares a vision and acts together. This is even more true after the British referendum. We will indeed have to rethink the way our Union works, but we perfectly know what to work for. We know what our principles, our interests and our priorities are. This is no time for uncertainty: our Union needs a Strategy. We need a shared vision, and common action.
Following the launch last month of a review of the European Neighbourhood Policy, EU foreign ministers, meeting in Luxembourg today, emphasised the need to work on a revision of the ENP in order to ensure it provides the adequate framework for long term relations with partners, while making it more political and responsive to the diverse challenges in the neighbourhood.
The Council stressed that a revised ENP should take into account interests and needs of the EU and its neighbours, commitment to reforms, and the level of ambition of the partnership.
