The UK can act as “independent trading nation” after leaving the European Union, even though Brussels is not reached trade agreement. This was stated by the Prime Minister of Britain Theresa may during a speech in the British Parliament, reports the BBC.

May told MPs that during negotiations on Brexit has been made “real and tangible progress,” but the country must be ready for “any scenario” of events, she said.

British Prime Minister stressed that advocates for “a new, deep and special partnership between sovereign Kingdom and a strong and successful European Union”.

“Achieving this partnership requires leadership and flexibility, not only from us but from our friends, the 27 countries of the EU,” she said.

In their statement, Mei rejected the existing models of economic cooperation, such as membership in the European economic area and the “canadian model” and called instead for “creative” solution which would be “unique” to the UK.

According to media reports, Corbin and his colleague Keir Starmer in charge of the question of a British exit from the European Union, have already met with the chief representative of EU in the negotiations about Brexit Michel Barnier and his Deputy Frans Timmermans.

22 September 2017 may said that the UK will pay the EU budget until 2020, in accordance with the obligations undertaken earlier.
