President Sauli Niinistö supports President of the European Council Donald Tusk’s idea of a strong police unit against terrorism on an EU level. President Niinistö visited Brussels just before the meeting of EU’s ministers for foreign affairs where the EU’s security level was discussed. He describes Finland’s foreign and security political situation as ‘unchanged’. President Niinistö strongly supports strengthening the Union’s joint security policy but considers talks about the EU’s joint army misleading. No one means a completely new army but a combination of existing resources and how they could be used together, he adds.
