Based on the ‘Draft General Budget of the European Union for the financial year 2017’ and the Council document ‘CFSP budget orientations for 2016 and 2017’, it has come to my attention that the common foreign and security policy (CFSP) budget for 2017 has been decreased to only 8.25% of the EU external relations budget (under the heading ‘Global Europe’).
In light of current security conditions around Europe, it is alarming how few financial resources are assigned to security, defence and counterterrorism in comparison with the much higher amounts devoted to the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance and the European Neighbourhood Instrument, which are, however, designed to be political rather than security tools.
This seems to indicate that newly required action and security agendas related to ISIS, conflict and post conflict in Syria, and instability and terrorist threats in Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq, as well as in the Sahel belt from Mauritania to Somalia, are not being considered as European security needs.
1. Can the Commission explain the reasons for the decrease in CFSP-allocated funds?
2. Does the Commission envisage increasing funding for the CFSP in the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) review for the year to come?
