British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday that a trade deal
with the European Union (EU) by the end of this year was "enormously
likely," as the country is set to officially leave the world's largest
Johnson made the comments in his first major TV
interview since the general election. He said the two sides would start
working on building a "fantastic new partnership" after Britain leaves
the EU on January 31, Efe news reported.
The Prime Minister said
he was "very, very, very confident" regarding the deal, although he
added that in any negotiation a country had "to budget for a complete
failure of common sense."
