Annual report on implementation of the common foreign and security policy, 2022

At a Glance 13-01-2023

The common foreign and security policy (CFSP) contributes to the EU's objectives of preserving peace; strengthening international security; promoting international cooperation; and developing and consolidating democracy, the rule of law, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. The 2022 annual report on the implementation of the CFSP adopted by the Committee for Foreign Affairs (AFET) highlights the need for stronger, more ambitious, credible, strategic and unified EU action on the world stage. It furthermore stresses that the EU should autonomously set its own objectives and develop and deploy capabilities to pursue them. The Parliament is scheduled to debate and vote on the report during its January 2023 plenary session.
