EU to sign framework participation agreement with Vietnam

The EU will soon sign a Framework Participation Agreement (FPA) with Vietnam to establish Vietnam's participation framework in EU crisis management activities, said a senior official.

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini made the statement at the 18th Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore last Saturday. Under the EU's Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP), the FDA will be the second of its kind signed with an Asian nation after the Republic of Korea. Similar deals have been reached with New Zealand and Australia. The EU has decided to send military advisors to Asia, starting with its delegation to ASEAN in Jakarta.
