The Withdrawal Agreement And Political Declaration On Our Future Relationship With The Eu

319.Im the field of cybersecurity, the Parties provide for close cooperation between the UK and the EU`s Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-EU), as well as participation in the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) and “certain activities” of the NIS Cooperation Group. There is a broad commitment to “promoting security and stability in cyberspace” through enhanced cooperation in international for a and an agreement on the exchange of data on a voluntary basis, which can protect both sides from common threats301 338.La wording on corrective measures in the event of non-compliance has been simplified and less concrete in the latest text, and the new paragraph 132 simply states: that “the future relationship will determine the conditions under which temporary remedies may be taken in the event of non-compliance”, including the suspension of obligations arising from parts of an EU-UK agreement.317 297.Paragraph 87 on extradition does not mention the European arrest warrant. Rather, it proposes that “effective arrangements” be made for extradition. It would also allow the parties to “determine the applicability of these [extradition] agreements to their own nationals and to political offences”. The reference to `its own nationals` is based on Article 185 of the Withdrawal Agreement, which allows any Member State which `has invoked reasons relating to the fundamental principles of national law` to refuse, during the transitional period, to extort its own nationals from the United Kingdom in response to a European arrest warrant. This provision will allow, for example, Germany, which has a constitutional ban on extraditating its nationals to third countries, to refuse surrender to the UK after 31 January 2020. 23. The amendment focuses on the current UK Government`s desire to establish a future relationship around a free trade agreement. The language of the political declaration has therefore moved from a relationship “as close as possible” to an “ambitious” relationship and references to the single customs territory have been replaced by references to VAT cooperation.

While this political statement, compared to the previous statement, which attempted to propose ways to negotiate a closer relationship, is more explicit than a standard FTA-type approach, the Scottish government felt that Theresa May`s proposal would in fact have had an overall impact similar to that of a free trade agreement in relation to EU membership. The new agreement now expressly confirms that this is the UK Government`s objective. 35. The majority of Member States` trade in services is in the internal market, which entails additional risks for Scottish service providers. No free trade agreement in the world offers the degree of freedom to provide services lost by exiting the internal market and it is difficult to imagine how such a loss could be suffered. . . .
