LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May said her government was ready to join up to a trans-Pacific trade agreement, following remarks made earlier this week by her Japanese counterpart who said he would welcome Britain into the deal with open arms.

“I’m very pleased that they want to welcome us into that trade agreement with open arms and we stand ready to do exactly that,” May told parliament.
