Japanese PM tells UK PM May 
to avoid no-deal Brexit

London: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said on Thursday he hoped Britain would avoid crashing out of the European Union without an agreement, as he threw his support behind the government’s contentious Brexit deal days before a vote by MPs.
Flanked by British Prime Minister Theresa May during a visit to London, Abe said Japanese businesses “very much welcomed” her draft divorce deal, which a majority of British lawmakers look set to reject in parliament next Tuesday amid fierce opposition.
“We truly hope that a no-deal Brexit will be avoided and in fact that is the... wish of the whole world,” the Japanese leader told a Downing Street press conference.
“This draft agreement for transition and legal stability for Japanese businesses is very much welcomed,” he added.
The endorsement came as pressure grew on May to rule out a no-deal Brexit if agreement is rejected by MPs next week. (AFP)
