Portugal’s foreign minister says he believed a trade deal between Britain and the European Union was still possible and a close relationship between both sides was essential for the future.

Augusto Santos Silva said during an online event to discuss priorities of Portugal’s European Council presidency that a deal was still possible. He added failure to do so would mean trading according to World Trade Organisation rules, but stressed the close relationship between Britain and EU cannot be renounced.
