US, UK Launch First Round of Talks to Reach Comprehensive Trade Deal – Statement

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and UK International Trade Secretary Liz Truss said on Tuesday they have launched formal trade talks and hope to move at a quick pace to reach a comprehensive agreement.

“Both parties agree that a Free Trade Agreement would contribute to the long-term health of our economies, which is vitally important as we recover from the challenges posed by COVID-19.”

The US-UK talks on the post-Brexit trade deal were originally planned earlier this year but were postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
