On 18 September, the British government issued a proposal for a new UK-EU security treaty, in which it declared the priority to maintain its share of European security cooperation, specifically mentioning the participation in institutions such as the Schengen Information System (SIS), Eurojust and Europol.

UK Prime Minister May has pointed out the need for security cooperation between Great Britain and the EU in the past, for example due to terrorist threats. A key element in this matter is the abovementioned SIS, which enables the sharing of information about people's movements and their personal data, and issues alerts about wanted or missing persons. Britain also significantly contributes to EU and NATO military missions abroad and provides capacities that other participating countries could hardly provide, notably in terms of air transport or support for operations, including close air support. The question remains what attitude will the EU take towards Britain's future participation in foreign missions. In addition, the EU intends to create a full-fledged defence union by 2025 and the details of how Britain, which is greatly interconnected with the European defence industry, fits into this vision will have to be introduced in the future.
