I'm here in Brussels today, like Michel, to begin the next phase of our work to build a new, deep, and special partnership with the European Union. There's more that unites us than divides us. So while we'll undoubtedly be challenging times ahead of us into the negotiations, we will do all of we can to ensure that we deliver deal that works in the best interest of all citizens.
To that end, we start this negotiation in a positive and constructive tone. Determined to build a strong, and special partnership between ourselves and European allies, and friends for the future.
