Cooperative Security Defence Diplomacy Activities

Defence Diplomacy Activities

Defence Diplomacy is a set of international activities mainly based on dialogue and cooperation, carried out by the Ministry of Defence on a bilateral basis with our allies, partners and friendly countries in order to promote the accomplishment of defence policy objectives in support of our State's external action.

These activities are developed through a Defence Diplomacy Plan whose fundamental aspects are:

  • Planning and development of Defence Policy actions within the international arena
  • preparation, negotiation and proposal of international treaties, agreements, conventions and conferences of interest for national defence, in all its fields and competences, and in coordination with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
  • Monitoring and evaluation of the international situation in the field of security and defence policy.

The development of this Plan includes activities such as:

  • Strengthening of capabilities in the field of prevention and stabilisation in crisis or conflict areas.
  • A Cooperation Programme in Military Education
  • Participation in exercises as part of confidence-building measures and transparency with countries of interest.
