Despite the tensions generated by Brexit, the leaders of France, Germany and the United Kingdom have stood together in disputes between the European Union and the United States.The U.K. has lately supported EU integration projects concerning foreign and security policy – much more so than before the Brexit referendum.Achieving this objective, defined in the EU's 2016 "Global Strategy," will be much easier with the U.K. on board.The fact is that the EU and the U.K. have more international clout together than separately.More frequent and visible strategic coordination among the E3 would support the ability of the EU and the U.K. to reap the benefits of mutual cooperation. It may also serve as a foundation for a pragmatic Brexit agreement that maintains close cooperation between the U.K. and the EU on foreign and security policy.Whether the EU likes it or not, a credible joint initiative by France, Germany and the U.K. would have a greater impact on the likes of Iran, Russia, China, or even the U.S. than a common EU position emanating from a debate in the EU's Political and Security Committee.
