The Government are supportive of the provisions in the Partnership and Co-operation Agreement (PCA) which has been concluded between the European Union and its member states, and Mongolia. However, the PCA has not yet been signed by the European Union or Mongolia. Ratification of the PCA can only take place in the UK (and other EU member states) once the agreement is signed by the EU and Mongolia. Signature by the EU can only take place once the European Council Decision on signing the agreement is agreed by all 27 member states.
