star this property answer text <p>​The UK has significant expertise in crisis preparedness and consular affairs. Thanks to its extensive global footprint of <del class="ministerial">273</del> <ins class="ministerial">274</ins> posts in 169 countries and territories, and its network of Honorary Consuls, the UK is able to provide professional consular services worldwide. In addition to our network, people who need assistance can call any of our embassies, high commissions or consulates, or the FCO switchboard, 24/7 for advice or help. The UK is open to maintaining a close level of cooperation with the EU, if this is perceived to be of mutual benefit, on crisis preparedness and consular affairs, including the provision of consular assistance to unrepresented EU citizens in third countries on a reciprocal basis. Details of this offer have been published on gov.uk, most recently in a <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/technical-note-on-coordination-of-external-security" target="_blank">technical note</a> on coordination on external security.</p>
