Brexit paper: Mutual interests on Euratom

The UK and the Euratom Community have a strong mutual interest in ensuring close co-operation in the future, to harness shared expertise and maximise shared interests, says an official Brexit paper.

The document was published by the Brexit secretary David Davis.

“The UK’s ambition is to maintain a close and effective relationship with the Euratom Community and the rest of the world that harnesses the UK’s and the Euratom Community’s expertise and maximises shared interests,” the paper says.

Davis said in a written statement: “The UK will withdraw from EURATOM when it leaves the EU. However, the UK and the EU have a strong mutual interest in continuing to cooperate on civil nuclear matters, harnessing shared expertise and maximising shared interests, for instance in nuclear research and development. As part of our orderly withdrawal and to provide certainty to industry, it is therefore important the negotiating teams work through issues relating to nuclear materials and non-proliferation (safeguards).”
