The Council of the European Union adopted on 6 May 2021 a set of Decisions authorising three non-EU Member States to take part in the PESCO project Military Mobility.

Further information:

The decisions by the Council confirm that the participation of Canada, Norway and the United States of America (USA) in this project meets the general conditions as established in Decision (CFSP) 2020/1639. Some of these conditions are political in nature; others are focused on the substantive contribution by the third state to the PESCO project, or prescribe certain legal requirements.

The PESCO project Military Mobility is a strategic platform enabling the swift and seamless movement of military personnel and assets throughout the EU, whether by rail, road, air or sea.
