Report: EU Leaders to Set New Defence Agenda | Europe | Deutsche Welle | 11.12.2008

The leaders, in draft conclusions drawn up to be published Friday at the end of their two-day summit in Brussels, will express their willingness to give "new impetus to European security and defence policy."

The EU, they say, should be capable of deploying a total of 60,000 troops in 60 days for a major operation, while "simultaneously planning and conducting" 19 other missions, ranging from maritime surveillance to police training.

The text sets no target date, saying only that this should happen "in the years to come."
