The second additional protocol to the agreement establishing an association between the European Community and its Member States, on the one hand, and the Republic of Chile, on the other, in order to take into account the accession of the Republic of Bulgaria and Romania to the association agreements of the European Union, is a comprehensive framework agreement between the EU (or its predecessors) and its Member States and an external state governing their bilateral relations. The provision of an association agreement was inserted into the Treaty of Rome, which created the European Economic Community, to enable the Community`s cooperation with the United Kingdom, which had withdrawn from the treaty negotiations at the Messina Conference in 1955. According to the European External Action Service, an agreement that must be classified as AA must meet several criteria: 7. In many cases, the Association Agreement replaces a cooperation agreement and thus strengthens relations between partners. The UK government has powers over trade agreements and international agreements, as well as the right and power to pass laws on all matters under parliamentary sovereignty, but the UK government will generally seek the compliant advice of the Devolved Parliament (s) when areas of agreement conflict with issues of decentralised jurisdiction. , regardless of their ability to legislate, association agreements were initially concluded by the EU to prepare third countries for accession. In the context of EU membership and the EU enlargement process, association agreements form the basis for the implementation of the accession process. To this end, association agreements are under way with the countries of the Western Balkans and Turkey. With regard to the trade aspects of the Ankara Agreement and subsequent decisions of the Association Council, this raises specific issues related to the transition of trade agreements. Since Turkey is in a partial customs union with the EU, there are no existing free trade agreements that can be technically transferred to the UK. That is why, in the event of the UK`s withdrawal from the EU, it will not be possible to change these rules on the first day of withdrawal. However, Turkey is an important partner for the UK and we want to strengthen our trade partnership as soon as we leave the EU.
