U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Sunday praised his European counterparts as they met to try to push through the biggest deal in Britain’s history in an attempt to keep the European Union’s single market and its customs union intact, but warned that Britain’s exit from the bloc was far from certain.
Johnson said his British counterparts have made a “significant” offer and said the United Kingdom would make “every effort” to stay in the single market, but “we are not there yet.”
He added that he has asked European leaders to work together on a trade deal, but also said Britain must not abandon its commitment to EU citizens living in the U!
The Prime Minister said that he will meet with EU leaders next week to try and hammer out an agreement that will allow Britain to keep its access to the single European market.
Johnson and European Council President Donald Tusk met at the German Chancellery for the first time since they met in September, and the two sides made clear they wanted to work on a deal that allows Britain to remain a member of the bloc.
Johnson said he was pleased with the progress made so far in negotiations, but said he is hopeful that the negotiations could turn into a deal for a lasting peace.
He also said he had asked for help from the U-Kurdish region, which he said is an important part of the deal.
“The region is very important and important for our European Union.
We want to have a partnership with that region,” Johnson said.
“We want to see the U.-Kurds able to live in Europe.
That is a very important part and we want to work in a way that works for the region.”
Johnson said that the U,K.
will continue to press its case for continued membership in the EU and that it is the United States’ duty to take up its own position.
Johnson also said that, despite U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s warning that the deal could undermine the “core values” of the United Nations, he said the U.,K.
would continue to work toward a future partnership with the organization.
Haley said in a statement that she “reaffirmed that the United Nation will continue working for the unity and prosperity of the world.”
