May highlights the commitments adopted by the G20 and defends the "brexit"

The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, today highlighted the commitments adopted in Buenos Aires by the G20 leaders and stressed that the "Brexit" will allow the United Kingdom to once again have its own commercial policy.

"A very productive summit has been generated and we have made commitments to work together in different areas, for example, in the reform of the World Trade Organization and an economy that serves us all," said May.

In a press conference at the end of the G20 summit, May said that the forum also addressed other "priorities, such as climate change and global health."

On the other hand, the Prime Minister stressed that the agreement for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union next April will have a favorable impact on the British economy and will also be good for global trade.

May said that now that "for the first time in more than four decades the United Kingdom is going to have an independent trade policy and an active role in the world," London is "willing to sign trade agreements with other nations," for example, with Canada or Japan, he said.

On the other hand, consulted about his meeting in Buenos Aires with the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohamed Bin Salman, and the October murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey, May said he spoke with him about this "complex" issue of the crime, which he described as "terrible".

"What I spoke with the prince yesterday was the importance of a transparent, credible investigation that identifies those who have been involved, and the importance of ensuring that those who were involved are the ones who respond to justice," he said.

May also spoke of his meeting with the host of the summit, the Argentine president, Mauricio Macri, and, in this regard, he stressed that the bilateral relationship "is developing and is growing."

"We will strengthen this relationship once we have left the European Union, a relationship that is growing and will continue to develop," he insisted.

May highlighted the conversations with Macri on trade and investment and the decision of both countries to establish a flight between the central Argentine province of Córdoba and the Malvinas Islands, under British domination and whose sovereignty the South American country claims.
