Subject Description - The European External Action Service (EEAS):

The European External Action Service (SEAE) of the European Union was created in 2011 with the main objective of managing the EU's diplomatic relations with third countries, in addition to managing the European Union's security and foreign policy.

One of the goals of the European External Action Service is to increase the influence of the European Union around the world.

The European Union's strategic partnerships with third countries and the European Neighbourhood Policy are also managed by the European External Action Service (EEAS).

Its head office is in Brussels (Belgium, Europe). The Chairman of the European External Action Service (EEAS) is the Vice-President of the European Commission Federica Mogherini.

The European External Action Service is the diplomatic service of the European Union and has a number of delegations (offices) abroad. Five major departments of the European External Action Service cover different areas of the world: Asia-Pacific, Africa, Europe and Central Asia, the Greater Middle East and the Americas.

Currently, the European Union has nine Special Representatives in different countries and regions of the world.
