Proposal for a regulation
Recital 1 a (new)
(1a) Recalls its resolution of 14 March 2018 on the next MFF: Preparing the Parliament’s position on the MFF post- 2020; reiterates its support for the creation of a European Defence Union, with a specific research programme in the area of defence of the Union and an industrial development programme in which Member States invest, in order to eliminate duplication and increase the strategic autonomy and efficiency of the European defence industry; reiterates that the Union can be stronger and more ambitious only if additional financial means are made available to it; calls, therefore, for ongoing support to be provided in the context of existing policies which increase resources for the Union’s flagship programmes, and for additional responsibilities to be matched with additional financial means;
