COREU (CORespondance EUropéenne)

COREU is a communication network between the 27 EU Member States, the Council, the European External Action Service (EEAS) and the European Commission.

By providing a regular flow of information, it facilitates cooperation on foreign and security policy matters, and their implementation.

COREU allows the EU to react swiftly in emergencies, for example by approving an EU position in Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) matters through a silence procedure at very short notice, as defined in Article 12 of the Council's Rules of Procedure.
