But this new reality, which highlights one of the factors, does not cancel the others, such as traditional conflicts or global terrorism. For this reason, the military operations carried out by the EU outside its borders will be essential to have a secure environment. To achieve this aim, it will be necessary an efficient cooperation among all the member States.
