UK PM Johnson says EU doesn't seem to want a Brexit trade deal

Fri, 16th Oct 2020 16:44

LONDON, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson said
on Friday that the European Union didn't seem to want a trade
deal so unless the bloc changed course, the United Kingdom would
leave without a deal on Dec. 31.

Asked how long he would keep his door slightly ajar and when
would it would be slammed shut, Johnson said: "Look, we've got
to a stage, alas, where they don't seem to want to progress a
free trade deal. That was pretty clear from the conclusions of
the summit."

"They don't want to go any further. Unless that
fundamentally changes, the we are going to have to come out on
Australian terms - but we will prosper mightily nonetheless."
