In spite of the tense G7 summit, the European Parliament produced a large report acknowledging the US’s key position in NATO and European security. It also emphasizes continued and strong defense ties with the UK following Brexit. The report was adopted just ahead of the NATO summit upcoming in July, together with the announcement of a new “European Peace Facility” through which the EU’s seeks to “prevent conflicts, build peace and guarantee international security.” These defense-focused developments are also reflected in the budget of all member states, which have increased defense spending after continued cuts in recent years.
