In a press conference held after the releasing of the G20 Leaders’ communiqué, British Prime Minister said she was pleased to be the first British head of state to visit Buenos Aires since the 1982 Malvinas war – “it is a milestone in our relationship” – and reaffirmed her intention of working towards an independent trade agreement between the United Kingdom and the Mercosur following Brexit.
“I was pleased to have a discussion about our future relationship with President Macri. Our relationship is developing and growing. We have taken steps towards it, such as the newly announced flight between the Islands and Sao Paulo, which will have a layover in Córdoba. I look forward to developing our trade relationship after Brexit,” said May.
However, these potential talks are entirely conditional on the British Parliament’s vote on the Brexit deal reached by the May administration and the European Union that will take place on December 11. With a continued exodus and government officials, the last one being science and universities minister Sam Gyimah, who criticized May’s “naive” deal, the possibility of this happening are looking increasingly slim.
When the last news were pointed out to May, the Prime Minister assured she stands by her deal, and that the following days will be “an important time” for Great Britain.
