Russia hopes for good ties with new UK govt - Kremlin

Russia would like to hope that it can have good relations with the United Kingdom with the new government in London, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.

Peskov's comments come after British Conservatives led by Prime Minister Boris Johnson won a majority in Parliament, leading the way to deliver Brexit. However, the spokesman added: "I don’t know how these expectations [of good relations] are appropriate in case with the Conservatives."

Earlier, EU officials stated that they are prepared for new, post-Brexit talks with the UK. Johnson is set to announce his new cabinet on Monday, breaking tradition of announcing members of the government the day after the election in the UK.
