The United Kingdom is not preparing for a "no deal" outcome of the Brexit talks as London is confident to get a good deal, UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Tuesday.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May has stressed that a bad Brexit deal with Brussels is worse than no deal at all.
"There is no plan for a 'no deal' because we are going to get a great deal," Johnson said speaking in parliament.
Brexit negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union officially kicked off on June 19, and are due to be completed by March 30, 2019. According to the European Commission, the agenda of the first round of talks is set to focus on "citizens" rights, the financial settlement, the border between Ireland and the Northern Ireland and other separation issues.
