US-UK trade deal is a priority - Pompeo

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that a trade deal between the US and the United Kingdom is a priority for Washington due to the "deep, long relationship" with London. However, he added that the Trump administration will have to "see how Brexit proceeds and how that timing goes" and admitted he has "no idea what the sequence will be" in negotiating trade agreements with the UK and the European Union.

"When Brexit is completed, as the people of the United Kingdom have demanded, we do intend to work on a free trade agreement with them - one that’s fair, reciprocal, based on mutual trust, and then we will both get after it and grow both of our economies," Pompeo told Euronews.
