Top Spooks from the UK, France and Germany unite to warn Brussels over post-Brexit Security

Posted by & filed under Security News.

Meeting at the Munich Security Conference the trio of spooks also pushed for an agreement on cross-border information sharing in order to monitor suspect terrorists. Spy chiefs from Britain, France, and Germany today warned their intelligence co-operation post-Brexit was ‘indispensable’ in an unprecedented intervention. Alex Younger, the head of MI6, and his European counterparts met in public for the first time to stress the necessity of their close ties when Britain leaves the UK. Germany’s BND President Bruno Kahl and France’s DGSE chief Bernard Ernie joined forces to pressure Brussels over the need for continued security links.

On the eve of Theresa May’s speech in Munich on security, the trio also pushed for an agreement on cross-border information sharing in order to monitor suspect terrorists. In a warning shot to Brussels ahead of crucial negotiations, they said the failure to be able to mount a collective modern response to modern threats would ‘lead to even greater risk’.

A modern response would include technological innovation, hybrid capabilities and the ability to be more creative and more agile to counter growing threats. Following a top-secret trilateral meeting in Germany, they stressed the need for close ties on international terrorism, illegal migration, proliferation and cyber attacks.
