EU foreign relations chief Federica Mogherini said there was a “consensus” in Tallinn to launch a European Defence Fund and to go ahead with Permanent Structured Cooperation (Pesco).
Pesco is an EU legal model for coalitions of member states to take part in joint military projects.
Mogherini said Pesco should be ready by the end of the year and that member states had already submitted more than 30 ideas for joint projects.
