The Malta Declaration, which followed the Valletta Informal European Council in February, sets out areas where the EU can collectively help address the rising number of refugees and migrants crossing the Central Mediterranean. We also remain committed to working with our European partners to ensure that the EU-Turkey Statement is implemented in an effective and sustainable way.</p> more like this

As the UN has commented, despite their best efforts, the Leaders were not at this stage able to reach the necessary further convergences on the criteria for territorial adjustment while in Switzerland. We continue to believe that with courage and compromise on both sides a deal is achievable. The UK will continue its steadfast support for a just and lasting settlement, and we stand ready to help bring the process to a successful conclusion.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The UK remains fully committed to conserving the marine environment around Antarctica, in line with the objectives of the Antarctic Treaty and the Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). We have been working hard with our international partners to establish a network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), and gain agreement for MPAs in East Antarctica, the Weddell Sea and around the Antarctic Peninsula. It is not in our gift to implement the MPA unilaterally. It is subject to an international treaty. At the recent CCAMLR annual meeting, which concluded on 2 November 2018, these proposals were rejected by Russia and China. We remain committed to working with all CCAMLR Members to seek consensus at next year's meeting.</p> more like this

In a No Deal scenario, the UK would have to withdraw from Common Security and Defence Policy missions and operations - both military and civilian - and withdraw associated personnel seconded to the EU institutions. The UK would continue to act through other multilateral fora, including through the UN and NATO, and the UK’s cooperation and collaboration on security and defence with individual EU Member States will continue.</p> more like this
