Whatever  the  uncertainties  surrounding  the  future  departure  of  the  UK,  there  is  a  need  to  discuss  how  EU  member  states  and  the  UK  will  structure  their  future  security  and  defense  relationship. How do Central European countries perceive the importance of the engagement of  the  UK  in  the  instruments  that  are  high  on  the  European  agenda,  such  as  the  European  Defense Fund or Permanent Structured Cooperation? Shall these countries think of increased cooperation outside of the EU structures, whether within NATO or other new formats?
