Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “After months of negotiations, UK, EU secure Brexit trade deal” – below is their description.
The United Kingdom and the European Union have agreed on a post-Brexit trade deal after months of torturous negotiations, averting the prospect of a chaotic and acrimonious divorce at the end of this year.
The announcement came on Thursday, just one week before the UK exits the EU’s single market and customs union on December 31.
“The deal is done,” UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted, as he posted a photo of himself with both thumbs raised in celebration.
A Downing Street source said: “We have taken back control of our money, borders, laws, trade and our fishing waters.”
