OREANDA-NEWS. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson during an official ceremony signed an agreement on Britain’s exit from the European Union.

“We can now move forward as one country – with a Government focused upon delivering better public services, greater opportunity and unleashing the potential of every corner of our brilliant United Kingdom, while building a strong new relationship with the EU as friends and sovereign equals,” the British Prime Minister said.

Earlier on the same day, the agreement was approved by the heads of the European Commission and the European Council. Council President Charles Michel said: “Things will inevitably change but our friendship will remain. We start a new chapter as partners and allies. I can’t wait to write this new page together.”
