Late on Wednesday, EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier revealed the contents of the provisional Brexit deal, agreed by the United Kingdom and the European Union. The accord includes agreements on citizens’ rights, future trade cooperation and Irish border issue, among other things.
"Consultation on sanctions, with intensified exchange of information where foreign policy objectives are aligned, with the possibility of adopting mutually reinforcing sanctions," the document, released late on Wednesday on the UK government website, read.
The parties also agreed to cooperate on the issues of terrorism, migration, healthcare and disaster response.
London and Brussels have been engaged in Brexit talks since June 2017.
The deal agreed upon by the two parties this week has been adopted by the UK cabinet, according to UK Prime Minister Theresa May. The accord needs to undergo further approvals by the EU Parliament and UK legislation.
