The EU and the United States Sign Military Logistical Assistance Agreement

The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini and the U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry signed an EU-U.S. Acquisition and Cross-Servicing Agreement (ACSA) yesterday.

This agreement fulfils a 2014 EU-U.S. Summit pledge to enhance practical EU-U.S. security and crisis response management cooperation.

The ACSA will facilitate reciprocal provision of reimbursable logistic support, supplies, and services between the European Union and the United States during military deployments and operations.

The signing of the ACSA marks a major milestone in EU-U.S. military cooperation in enabling crisis response and promoting security around the world. EU and U.S. personnel and forces continue to work hand-in-hand to address crises in international security, particularly in Africa.

The ACSA will also help to reinforce the strategic partnership between the EU and NATO as they work together to strengthen defence and security in Europe and project stability among neighbours and partners.
