Thursday, 8 December 2016

Turki Al-Dakhil
“Let’s change, if you don’t mind, to other subject - let’s go to Europe. How do you see Britain in the world after Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May?”

Theresa May
“Well, once we leave the European Union, I want to see Britain…”

Turki Al-Dakhil
“Well, when that will happen?”

Theresa May
“Well, it will - well, there is some process to go through first. We have to formally trigger the formal negotiations. I expect to trigger the negotiations by the end of March next year, and then there is a process which can be up to two years, as set forward in the relevant European treaty, for those negotiations to take place. When we leave the European Union, the UK will be free to negotiate, to have set up trade arrangements around the world.
“But I want to see the UK, having taken this decision to leave the European Union, as a confident, positive, outward-looking country. I want us to be a global leader in free trade, I think it’s very important for us to be out there arguing for the benefits, economic benefits, of free trade. I want to see us building on our alliances around the whole world. I also want to see us negotiating the right deal for the UK with the European Union, because we want to continue to have good relations. We’re leaving the EU - we’re not leaving Europe.”
