UK's Labour says will hold government to promise of EU deal by year-end
LONDON (Reuters) - The British Labor Party will uphold Prime Minister Boris Johnson's promise to reach a free trade agreement with the European Union by the end of the year, spokesman for its leader Keir Starmer said on Wednesday.
Johnson has suggested reaching an agreement in July, but negotiators on both sides have so far viewed the talks positively.
"We want the government to get a deal. The government has announced that it will complete it by the end of the year. We will keep that promise," the spokesman told reporters.
Britain left the EU on January 31st and its relationship with the bloc is now governed by a transitional arrangement that will keep the previous rules while both sides negotiate new terms.
