    Good news: the US and, in its wake, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, are getting concerned about the EU’s defence plans. Those should not lead to a duplication of NATO, nor create economic barriers between both sides of the Atlantic, they have said as the NATO Defence Ministers are meeting in Brussels. That’s good news, for it is the best proof that PESCO, the Permanent Structured Cooperation in defence that the EU launched in December of last year, has real potential. Otherwise the US would not worry about it.
