Provides the option for the EU and its States to provide assistance to another EU State that is the victim of a terrorist attack or a natural or man-made disaster.

The means for implementing the solidarity clause are defined by a decision adopted by the Council, on a joint proposal by the Commission and the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. When the implementation of the solidarity clause has implications for the Common Security and Defence Policy, the Council is assisted by the Political and Security Committee.
