Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 18 luglio 2020

She announced that the Presidency wants to prepare a European strategic compass, starting with a joint threat analysis that should be finished by the end of the Presidency in 2020. This is the first time, in such context, that Europe will deal with the term hybrid threat, trying to find solutions to the problems of hacking and disinformation that it faces today, she pointed out. Recalling particularly her ongoing talks with Baltic and Višegrad countries, she said that the EU will examine how to perceive Russia, assessing what threats emanate from this country.Ms Kramp-Karrenbauer talked about European sovereignty, stressing that the EU needs to have more capabilities and assets, especially in relations with NATO; not to supplement NATO, but to be able to take on its responsibility. She gave an example of European engagement in the Sahel region, where Europe must be able to continue its missions if the USA decides to withdraw from West Africa.She stressed the importance of the European Peace Facility, when it comes to the participation of third countries, as well as to PESCO projects. During the COVID-19 crisis, it became clear that armies can play an important role in fighting the pandemic, such as through flights for medical transport from one country to another.Expressing his concerns over cuts that defence projects such as military mobility are undergoing at the moment, the Chair of the Committee on Foreign Affairs David McAllister (EPP, DE) said: “Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer rightly stressed that the EU needs to strengthen its resilience and ability to act. The guiding principle of the German Presidency in security and defence matters is that “A strong Europe in the world” has to be filled with substance. It is about providing strategic orientation and setting the first key milestones for a post-COVID future in order to emerge stronger from the crisis.”
