On leaving the EU, the UK will pursue an independent foreign policy, but we would be open to co-operating closely, where this is in our shared interest. We are currently in discussions with the EU on our future security partnership, and we continue to discuss this with our counterparts across Europe. The UK has also published online our vision for the future external security relationship.
