NATO Foreign Ministers discussed steps to strengthen the Alliance’s cooperation with the European Union on Tuesday (6 December 2016). Ministers were joined by EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, as well as Finland and Sweden. They endorsed over 40 proposals to deepen NATO-EU cooperation in seven key areas, including countering hybrid threats, maritime security and cyber defence. Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called it “a milestone in our relations,” adding: “neither organisation has the full range of tools” to address new challenges alone, “but working together we are a formidable force for good.”
