The UK and the European Union have said they are working together to improve their relationship, after weeks of tensions over Covid vaccine supplies.In a joint statement, they said they wanted to "create a win-win situation and expand vaccine supply for all".
The European Commission earlier proposed tougher export controls on vaccines, amid tensions over supplies of the Oxford-AstraZeneca jab.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned that "blockades" were not "sensible".
The joint UK-EU statement said that "openness and global co-operation" would be key to tackling the pandemic.
"We are all facing the same pandemic and the third wave makes co-operation between the EU and UK even more important," it said. "We will continue our discussions."
