Multilateral[edit]

Adding a section in the template on multilateral relations, for example from the linked report:

The UK also has ... a strong interest in maintaining an effective and influential Commonwealth; ... For any given foreign policy issue, the UK potentially has a range of options for delivering impact in our national interest. ... we have a complex network of alliances and partnerships through which we can work, ... These include – besides the EU – the UN ... the Commonwealth;

Iran is another example where the UK works simultaneously through a range of alliances: with the US; in the “P3” and “P5” groupings of permanent members of the UN Security Council; in the E3+3; in the wider UN and EU; and with like-minded Commonwealth states.

Many commentators noted that the UK had strong diplomatic assets including multiple alliances and networks, such as the Commonwealth, NATO, the UN, membership of the “P5” grouping of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, and a global diplomatic network.
