Un accordo commerciale tra Regno Unito e Unione europea potrebbe essere presentato entro il termine dei due anni di negoziati Brexit e un buon accordo è una priorità per entrambe le parti. Lo ha detto il primo ministro lettone Maris Kucinskis a Sky News a margine del vertice Ue a Malta. Secondo il primo ministro lettone, gli Stati membri sperano di stabilire partnership forti con il Regno Unito per il commercio, ma lo è tutta l’Unione europea, e l’accordo commerciale con il blocco “è possibile” entro due anni. “La cosa più importante è quello di pensare ad un partenariato vantaggioso e trovare una soluzione amichevole” ha detto Kucinskis.

A trade deal between the United Kingdom and the European Union may be made within the two-year period of Brexit negotiations and a good agreement is a priority for both sides, Latvian Prime Minister Maris Kucinskis told Sky News on the sidelines of an EU summit in Malta. According to the Latvian prime minister, the member states are hoping to establish strong partnerships with the United Kingdom on trade, but so is the whole European Union, and the trade deal with the bloc “is possible” within two years. “What is most important is to think about a beneficial partnership [and] find an amicable solution to all of this,” Kucinskis was quoted as saying by the broadcaster Saturday. The White Paper on Brexit issued by the UK government on Thursday reinstated Prime Minister Theresa May’s promise to focus on bilateral free trade agreements and pointed out that, while the United Kingdom could not make any deals until after it leaves the bloc, it could start preparing for future negotiations. The paper also vowed to continue collaborating with the European Union on science and research as well as on security. On Wednesday, the UK parliament voted in favor of Brexit bill allowing May to trigger Article 50 of Lisbon Treaty and start the withdrawal process.
