The European External Action Service (EEAS) is a unique European Union (EU) institution that is being established following the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon on 1st December 2009. It will serve as a foreign ministry and diplomatic corps for the EU. The EEAS is under the authority of the High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy (a post also created by the Treaty of Lisbon), whom it assists.

In July 2010, the Council adopted a decision establishing the European External Action Service (EEAS) and setting out its organisation and functioning.
