The report promotes "Europe's" development of global power and contains numerous suggestions for the EU's formation, including the demand to establish an "EU Security Council" to supervise all of the EU's security policies. Only those seven countries with the largest military budgets will be permanent members.”</let> </hide><if not flag=$including><let name=docat val=1 /><call ShowLinkData /></if>
