The United Kingdom intends to forge a Canada-style free trade agreement with the European Union after Brexit, James Slack, the UK Prime Minister's spokesman said on Monday, APA reports citing Sputnik.

According to Slack, the day after the UK officially pulls out of the EU, London will begin trade talks with global powers, and not only with the bloc. In particular, he added that extensive work had been done in preparing for trade negotiations with the United States.

A Canadian-style trade deal with the EU refers to the CETA - the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement. Under the deal, almost all tariffs on traded goods have been eliminated.
