US intelligence official says Brexit will not harm info-sharing relationship with Britain

GCHQ targets teenage girls with all-female course in bid to redress gender imbalance 

Mr Vassalo, the associate deputy director of national intelligence for mission integration, responded when asked by this newspaper if Brexit would impact the UK-US intelligence-sharing relationship. 

“I think that operationally, tactically, the work that’s done in the field, the work that’s done back here, in terms of integrating across the allies and … partners, goes on,” Mr Vassalo said.

“I haven’t noticed any material change in any of that, and I wouldn’t expect to.” 

The remark is likely to be welcomed by Eurosceptics who argue that the negative impacts of leaving the EU have been over-exaggerated by those wishing to remain a member of the bloc. 

The UK-US intelligence relationship has not been without strains since Donald Trump took over the presidency in January 2017.
