They promised to consolidate their strength and strengthen their resilience by reducing critical dependencies, said EU Council President Charles Michel after the meeting. He added that to become more effective and assertive on the international stage, the EU needs to increase its ability to act autonomously.

He said that EU members are committed to working with their allies and like-minded partners, in particular the US and NATO, which is the cornerstone of EU security.
