British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has signed a post-Brexit trade agreement with the European Union, adding his signature to that of European Union leaders after the document was sent from Brussels to London.
“If I read it? The answer is, yes “, commented the head of the British government.
Earlier, Boris Johnson assured that Britain will continue to be a European country after leaving the EU, because it is the quintessence of European culture.
“This is not the end of Britain as a European country,” Johnson told the BBC. “We are in many ways the quintessence of European culture or whatever you want to call it, and we will continue to be.”
“The agreement we signed today is the result of many months of intensive negotiations in which the European Union has shown an unprecedented level of unity. “This is a fair and balanced agreement that fully protects the fundamental interests of the European Union and creates stability and predictability for citizens and companies,” said the President of the European Council.
At the same time, Mr. Michel noted that “on major issues, the European Union is ready to work with the United Kingdom” referring to both the climate issue and the global response to pandemics, as well as foreign affairs and interests “.
