The UK has welcomed closer cooperation on security and defence at EU level, to the extent that it is coherent with NATO.</p><p>We believe Europe's interests are best served by an EU that is outward-facing and inclusive, ensuring its defence initiatives are coordinated closely with NATO. We have therefore consistently supported the NATO Secretary General's conditions that the EU's defence initiatives should be; coherent with NATO requirements, available to NATO, and have the fullest participation of non-EU Allies of NATO (including the UK after Brexit).</p><p>We will continue to advocate an open and flexible approach, ensuring that European security benefits from the capabilities and resources that the EU's closest strategic partners bring to bear and to caution against duplication of decision-making structures.</p><p>As outlined in the UK-EU Political Declaration agreed in November 2018, we foresee a future security partnership that is both flexible and scalable, enabling cooperation on a case-by-case basis and when in mutual interests.</p>
