LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday he was very optimistic about trade talks with the EU, saying a deal could improve economic integration with the bloc.
“We’re very optimistic,” he told Sky News.
“We want a great relationship with our friends. We buy huge quantities of their stuff, they buy huge quantities of our stuff. There’s just a big chance there, not just to maintain what we already have but to intensify our economic interpenetration and do more trade together.”
