EU to move towards joint buying of shells for Ukraine, says official

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – A number of European Union countries are expected to sign a “Project Arrangement” on joint procurement of 155 mm artillery shells for Ukraine on Monday, a senior EU official said on Friday.

“(The Project Arrangement) is the basis for the European Defense Agency and its member states to move on, … basically the terms of reference that are the legal basis to move on.”

The official could not confirm how many countries would sign, but said they were “quite confident to see many signatures on Monday”, adding the project was open to all EU members plus Norway and countries would be able to join it at any time.
