An unofficial document by Finland on EU defence has been released. The document outlines that EU defence integration should focus on securing Europe, crisis management, supporting partners, and preventing and responding to external threats. The plan is pragmatic and emphasises the creation of security and defence partnerships after Britain’s decision to leave the EU. Finland also proposes additional funds to EU joint combat forces and to research and development of military technology.
