The European Union needs its own armed forces to ensure its security, said EU Foreign Minister Josep Borrell.

Borrell wrote on his blog that the new security environment shows that the EU must take greater responsibility for its security and that is why a modern and interoperable European army is needed.

According to Borrell, the EU should work in three main directions.

He noted that the members must first work on strengthening the combat readiness of the forces, then increase the existing capacities, qualitatively and quantitatively in the next five years, and finally develop common key future capacities in a longer period of time.

“It is time to improve European defense. We need to strengthen the European defense industry and be operational with the necessary military capabilities. “That we can increase military defense capabilities, strengthen NATO and support our partners better,” Borrell said.
