Further information
The United Kingdom's commitment to European security would remain steadfast, and we would seek to agree new arrangements that enabled the country to sustain close UK-EU cooperation that would allow us to tackle shared threats.

The UK therefore envisaged cooperation on external action to be central to the future partnership, complementing broader national security and law enforcement collaboration to tackle complex, multi-faceted threats.

The UK remained committed to working with and alongside the EU and third countries by contributing policy tools and expertise, defence and security capabilities, global networks and influence, and development spend to support peace and security.
