HR-VP Mogherini/ EEAS

The European External Action Service

The EEAS is the European Union's diplomatic corps. It supports the EU foreign affairs chief (High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Federica Mogherini) in conducting the common foreign and security policy. It has Delegations around the world working on behalf of the people of the European Union and representing the EU as a whole.

 
The EEAS is functionally autonomous from other EU bodies – but has a legal responsibility to ensure its policies are consistent with other EU policies.
 
To help ensure this, the High Representative is also a Vice-President of the European Commission, and President of the Foreign Affairs Council. The EEAS diplomatic service also supports High Representative Federica Mogherini in these capacities.
