The Government is also offering to agree joint foreign policy positions with Brussels, including co-operating on worldwide sanctions against states or terrorist organisations.

LONDON-Britain pledged on Tuesday to contribute troops and to work with the European Union to implement foreign sanctions after Brexit, underscoring how the United Kingdom sees its military and security contributions as key cards to play in negotiating its exit from the bloc.

The U.K. lays out its position on future security cooperation with the European Union in a paper to be published Tuesday in which it emphasizes the mutual benefits of working across the Brexit divide.

Elsewhere in Myanmar, communal tension appeared to be rising after more than two weeks of violence in Rakhine state. He said nobody should preach New Delhi on the matter as India absorbed the maximum number of refugees in the world.

Brexit Secretary David Davis says "it's in our mutual interest" to work together against terrorism and other threats.

Opponents of Brexit argue that leaving the European Union will undermine cooperation with the bloc against crime, terrorism and military threats.

It was expected to be a nerve-wracking night for Prime Minister Theresa May who's opponents have slammed the bill as power grab by the Conservative government, but in the end, many fell in step with May, spurred by fears of a chaotic Brexit if the they voted no because Britain would lack laws to steer the process. In that she wrote: "In security terms, a failure to reach agreement would mean our cooperation in the fight against crime and terrorism would be weakened".

As things now stand Britain will remain a member of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, retain its seat on the UN Security Council, and maintain its position as Europe's biggest military power. The U.K. has the largest defense budget in the EU.

Britain will offer the European Union a "deep security partnership" against terrorism, cyber crime and illegal immigration, it will say.

Foreign secretary and Leave campaigner Boris Johnson said: "In recent years, the European Union has helped achieve crucial foreign policy goals - from bringing Iran to the negotiating table, to uniting in response to Russian aggression in Ukraine". So this paper will say that we want a future partnership in which we can continue to collaborate with our European partners on defence research and capability development post-exit'.
