On Wednesday, European lawmakers approved Britain’s departure from the European Union (EU). Earlier debates made mixed comments for Britain, with some warning the country not to ask for too many concessions during the upcoming trade talks. In the European Parliament, 621 votes were cast in favor of the Brexit Agreement and 49 votes against. With this, Britain’s departure from the EU has been approved.
The Brexit agreement was signed by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson last year in talks with other 27 EU leaders. In Britain, a referendum was held in June 2016 on the decision to leave the EU. EU countries were already preparing for the possibility of negotiating a new trade deal with Britain.
After separating from the EU on Friday, Britain will remain in the EU’s economic system until the end of this year, but will not be able to give any opinion about any policy. Britain is the first country to leave the EU.
