UK appeals to Japan to press EU for Brexit deal 

'Britain has made a fair and reasonable offer,' says trade secretary Fox

TOKYO -- A senior U.K. official urged Japan and other trading partners to press the European Union to reach an accord on Britain's departure from the economic bloc, to avoid further disruption to the world economy. 

"We need our allies around the world also to talk to the EU and say, 'Britain has made you a fair and reasonable offer'," said Liam Fox, secretary of state for international trade, in an interview with the Nikkei Asian Review. "If you reject that offer, and we end up with no deal, that would be to everybody's detriment -- the EU, the U.K. and our trading partners."
