Newsline: EU, Peru top diplomats clinch defense deal

The European Union and Peru signed agreements on Friday to strengthen relations in areas such as inclusive growth, democratic cooperation, climate change and the fight for cybersecurity, including an agreement that will allow Peru to participate in European defense missions. At a press conference after the signing, the EU High Representative for Foreign Policy, Josep Borrell, has valued Peru as a “key partner” in Latin America, claiming that it is a democratic country open to the outside world. In this sense, Borrell stressed that the signing of the understanding agreement with Peru and the agreement on Defense and Security will give an “additional boost” to an “excellent” cooperation between Lima and Brussels. Specifically, on military cooperation, the head of European diplomacy pointed out that Peru will be able to contribute to European military operations, following the example of Colombia and Chile. “We look forward to the deployment on the ground of Peruvian troops in EU missions,” he said.
