star this property answer text <p>​The British Government has an active programme of engagement with our international partners outside the EU on a range of issues, including EU exit, where we keep countries updated on a regular basis at key moments in the negotiations. As the Prime Minister has said, the UK is leaving the European Union not Europe. The draft Withdrawal Agreement and outline Political Declaration provide the basis for what will be the closest relationship between the EU and any third country and signals the ambition of both sides to embark on a new, deep and special partnership after the UK leaves the EU, as well as strengthened relationships with other countries further afield.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The NPT does not require the UK, as a nuclear weapons State, to agree safeguards agreements with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Since 1978, the UK has voluntarily accepted the application of safeguards in the United Kingdom in connection with the NPT through tri-lateral nuclear safeguards arrangements between the UK, the IAEA and Euratom – a Voluntary Offer Agreement (VOA) and, later, an Additional Protocol (AP). On 7 June 2018 the UK and the IAEA signed a new VOA and new AP to replace the existing trilateral agreements that include Euratom. The new VOA and AP were presented to Parliament for ratification on 12 November. The new VOA and AP ensure that the IAEA retains its right to inspect all civil nuclear facilities, and continues to receive all current safeguards reporting, thus ensuring that international verification of our safeguards activity continues to be robust.</p> more like this
