UK JAPAN RELATIONS – British Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt meets Japanese Prime Minister


British Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt met Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo where Abe said Japan welcomed the fact that the UK avoided a no-deal Brexit.

Hunt told Abe that the government was determined to avoid a no-deal outcome and wanted to continue cooperation with Japan.

During his visit to Japan, Hunt will seek to reassure Japanese carmaker Toyota that the government is focused on avoiding a no-deal exit from the European Union and ensuring tariff-tree trade between Britain and the EU.

The world’s biggest carmakers including Toyota, BMW and Ford have urged Britain to ensure that they can import and export without hindrance after Brexit.
