Government position on UK-EU sanctions cooperation post-Brexit

UK Gov.jpgThe UK government has set out its aims for UK-EU sanctions cooperation post-Brexit, see here.

Upon leaving the EU, the UK will “pursue an independent foreign policy” but shall seek a “close and cooperative relationship that goes beyond existing third country relationships with the EU”. In particular, the UK “will want to continue to work closely together on sanctions”. There are several models in which this could take, from formal mechanisms for dialogue and information sharing, to more informal engagement (which is largely how the US works with the EU).
