European Union missions and operations

Poland is a member of the European Union since 2004, the engagement in the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) is – apart from the membership in NATO and cooperation with key partners – one of the primary pillars of Poland's security. Poland opts for increasing the global role of the EU and for strengthening CSDP. We perceive this policy as an indispensable addition to initiatives carried out within NATO and as a tool to enhance cooperation with the EU’s neighbors, including Eastern Partnership countries. Thus, Poland gets actively involved in the CSDP military operations.
