Washington D.C. [US], Dec 13 (ANI): US President Donald Trump on Friday congratulated UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on his "great win" in the 2019 General Election and said that Britain and the United States will now be free to strike a "massive new trade deal" after Brexit.
"Congratulations to Boris Johnson on his great WIN! Britain and the United States will now be free to strike a massive new Trade Deal after BREXIT. This deal has the potential to be far bigger and more lucrative than any deal that could be made with the E.U. Celebrate Boris!," the US President said in a tweet.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi too earlier today congratulated his British counterpart Boris Johnson and said that he looks forward to working with him for closer India-UK ties.
"Many congratulations to PM @BorisJohnson for his return with a thumping majority. I wish him the best and look forward to working together for closer India-UK ties," Modi tweeted.
Johnson's Conservative Party on Friday secured a majority in the House of Commons. The victory would mean that they will plough ahead with Brexit, ending all chances of a second referendum over the issue.
This was Britain's third general election in a little more than four years, and the second since the June 2016 Brexit referendum. (ANI)
