The United Kingdom's exit from the European Union can allow London to take control over intelligence, asylum rights and borders, the UK justice secretary said.

LONDON (Sputnik) — Potential exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union will allow London to regain control over such issues as intelligence, asylum rights and border control, on its own, UK Justice Secretary Michael Gove said Tuesday.

"[The European Court of Justice] can now control how we apply asylum rules, how our intelligence services monitor suspected terrorists, and whom we can deport…But if we vote to leave [from the European Union], we take back control," Gove said, as quoted by The Guardian.

He added that Brexit would also help to regain control over the country's borders.

UK citizens are set to vote on June 23 in a referendum on the country's EU membership, after Prime Minister David Cameron and the leaders of the 27 EU member states reached a deal in February to grant Great Britain a special status within the bloc. Cameron's proposals to Brussels included a number of issues, including in the sphere of migration policy.
