Libya crisis: Where is Europe's Common Defence Policy?

Europe's hesitant response to the Libyan crisis has once again revealed the weakness of the bloc's common Foreign and Defence policy. While France and Britain took a leading role in pushing for a UN resolution and military intervention on the ground, Germany chose to abstain from the UN vote, siding with Russia and China.

French MEP, European People's Party

Chair, Subcommittee on Security and Defence

 

Geoffrey VAN ORDEN

British MEP, European Conservatives and Reformists

Member, Subcommittee on Security and Defence & Committee on Foreign Affairs
