Read the Political Declaration on the framework for the post-Brexit relationship agreed by the UK and EU

British and EU negotiators in Brussels have now agreed a text for the proposed political declaration on future EU/UK relations.

This is not a text that will be legally binding, but rather is aspirational about the shared hopes for the future relationship.

As the declaration states, it “establishes the parameters of an ambitious, broad, deep and flexible partnership across trade and economic cooperation, law enforcement and criminal justice, foreign policy, security and defence and wider areas of cooperation”. It also suggests that, if both parties agree, “the future relationship may encompass areas of cooperation beyond those described in this political declaration”.
