Joined by High Representative Federica Mogherini and Defence Ministers from Finland and Sweden, NATO Defence Ministers met today to review the unprecedented progress that has been achieved over the past two years in NATO-EU cooperation. The two organisations have been working together on 74 concrete areas of cooperation, including hybrid and cyber, maritime operations, exercises and military mobility, and the fight against terrorism. NATO and EU leaders plan to sign a new joint declaration in July to further enhance their level of cooperation.
