Pesco is a set-up enabling the US to supervise yet another major infrastructure project in Europe

Summary of Disinformation

Pesco (Permanent Structured Cooperation on security and defence) does not indicate Europe’s independence. It is a set-up enabling the US to supervise yet another major infrastructure project in Europe.

Disproof

The US is not an EU member state. PESCO is a Treaty-based framework and process to deepen defence cooperation amongst EU Member States who are capable and willing to do so. The aim is to jointly develop defence capabilities and make them available for EU military operations. Enhanced defence capabilities of EU Member States will also benefit NATO. They will strengthen the European pillar within the Alliance and respond to repeated demands for stronger transatlantic burden sharing.
