The British Prime Minister said that his country “has amazing opportunities to open markets for trade” around the world.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson noted the need to conclude a free trade agreement with the countries of continental Europe.
“The biggest deal we need to make is a free trade agreement with our friends and partners across the channel,” Johnson said, noting that his country “has amazing opportunities to open markets for trade” around the world.
The British Prime Minister stressed the importance of the deal the day after the talks with US assistant to the President for national security John Bolton, during which, in addition to issues related to “Brexit” and security, the parties discussed the preparations for the conclusion of a trade agreement. Bolton himself has already called the meeting with Johnson remarkable, but the British Prime Minister made it clear that in the negotiating positions of London and Washington there are differences.
“I know from my own experience that Americans are very difficult negotiators,” Johnson stressed. But at the same time, he expressed confidence that the United Kingdom “will conclude with them [the US] an excellent deal, will open up new opportunities for British companies in the US, especially service companies.” “It will be a continuation of a tense long-standing dispute, but we will succeed,” he is convinced.
