Foreign Office statement clarifying media reports on working with international academics

Foreign Office issues statement on recent media reports on working with international academics.


A Foreign Office spokesman said:

This story stems from a misunderstanding. To be absolutely clear on the facts – it is categorically wrong to suggest that we would not welcome the work of non-British nationals, including EU nationals. We did so before the referendum and we will continue to do so in the future – benefiting from advice from the best and brightest minds, regardless of nationality.
