Dear European Border and Coast Guard Agency,

Unfortunately, I need the data since 2015 and I cannot narrow it further.

Concerning the clarification of the term "military and security cooperation", it encompasses all defense interactions, programs, and activities with foreign security forces and their institutions to build relationships that help promote European interests; enable partnerships with foreign countries (which I specified in my previous request) in terms of infrastructure, information, and resources.

Yours faithfully,

Carole Mathis
