PARIS, Nov 15 — French finance minister Bruno Le Maire said today that British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Brexit deal was “good news,” adding that it was in everyone’s interest that the Brexit process proceeded smoothly.

“It is good news,” Le Maire told France 2 television, adding that May’s draft Brexit deal was a good development for both the French and the broader euro zone economy.

Le Maire added he would nevertheless be “prudent” over the next steps in the Brexit process, so that any final deal would respect various rules on issues such as tax regulation.

Yesterday, Prime Minister May won the backing of her senior ministers for a draft European Union divorce deal, freeing her to tackle the much more perilous struggle of getting parliament to approve the agreement. — Reuters
