In line with the UK's wider Objective on increased collaboration to counter the global threat from terrorism, the Government is already working closely with allies, partners in the region and through the UN and EU on counter-terrorism priorities. That includes working closely with European partners to tackle the shared threat from foreign fighters travelling to Syria and the region. The UK is regularly exchanging information with European partners at an operational and policy level to ensure coordination of efforts in tackling the threat.
