Common position (CFSP) and the Treaties of the European Union

Description of Common position (CFSP) provided by the European Union Commission: The common position in the context of the common foreign and security policy (CFSP) is designed to make cooperation more systematic and improve its coordination. The Member States are required to comply with and uphold such positions which have been adopted unanimously at the Council. For reasons of simplification, the European Constitution which is in the process of being ratified restricts CFSP instruments to European decisions and international agreements. Once the Constitution enters into force, common positions and their implementation will be based on European decisions (non-legislative instruments) adopted by the Council of Ministers.
