The European Union is becoming a "superpower" indispensable for world peace, the bloc's foreign affairs chief said Thursday as Europe pondered the implications of Donald Trump's upset U.S. election victory.Trump's stunning win has shocked a Europe fearful that his "America First" campaign pledge will see Washington downgrade ties with both NATO and the European Union that have underpinned the Western political order since World War II.Some EU states such as France and Germany see Brexit as an opportunity to press ahead with defense cooperation that London has long blocked, and analysts have said the same could be true if Trump were to turn his back on Europe.The EDA is a small unit set up to help coordinate efforts to boost overall EU defence capabilities by increasing cooperation among member states.
