The agreement governing our future relationship with the EU can only be legally concluded once the UK has left the EU. Article 50 sets out that the Withdrawal Agreement should take account of the framework of the future relationship with the EU, so at the same time as we negotiate the Withdrawal Agreement, we will seek to articulate our ambition for a deep and special partnership with the EU. Whatever the nature of the future UK-EU relationship, the UK will remain committed to international efforts to tackle climate change and working closely with the EU on such global challenges will remain very important.
