Shaping the future of EU foreign policy
Stabilising Europe's neighbourhood, keeping up EU's enlargement and integration commitments, and earmarking at least 2% of EU member states’ GDP for defence expenditure are among MEPs’ suggestions for the upcoming EU global strategy to be debated on Tuesday and voted on Wednesday. MEPs will also scrutinise last year's common foreign and security policy choices in a debate with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini.
The debate and the resolution will set out MEPs' input to EU Global Strategy on Foreign and Security Policy to be presented by Ms. Mogherini by June 2016.
