Five of the biggest EU countries have tasked foreign relations chief Catherine Ashton with making plans for an EU military command centre despite British objections.
Foreign ministers from the group – France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain – in a letter dated 2 September and seen by EUobserver urged Ashton to: “Examine all institutional and legal options available to member states, inlcuding permanent structred co-operation, to develop critical CSDP [Common Security and Defence Policy] capabilities, notably a permanent planning and conduct capability.”
They added: “We would appreciate if you present conclusions of the work … in early autumn with a view to achieving tangible results by the end of the year.”
Comment by Adamantine:
