British Prime Minister Theresa May and the Cabinet came to a general agreement on trade and customs issues after Brexit. According to the BBC, the politicians were able to overcome differences over the strategy of withdrawal from the European Union.

"We propose to create a free trade zone with the European Union and establish acceptable customs rules for business," the report says.

Now these proposals will be discussed with EU officials.

"This agreement, I believe, will be good for the UK and good for the European Union, and I look forward to its positive perception," said Theresa May to BBC.

According to The Times, the prime minister was "uncompromising" during the discussion of the agreement and even promised to dismiss Foreign Minister Boris Johnson if he tried to undermine the treaty.

Earlier, British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson, during a closed meeting of Tory supporters and donors, severely criticized British Prime Minister Theresa May. According to him, the UK authorities are counting on a much less successful outcome of the Brexit deal than was originally intended.

Earlier Theresa May warned European leaders to remain "open-eyed" to the threat of "hostile" Russia as she accused Moscow of trying to destabilise the continent. This was reported by Sky News.

Upon arriving in Brussels for the EU summit focused on the bloc's partnership with eastern European countries, the Prime Minister offered a stark assessment of Russian President Vladimir Putin's actions.

Speaking ahead of the Eastern Partnership summit, Mrs May said: "The summit here today is all about taking stock and about looking ahead to see how we can tackle the shared challenges together, both in security and development.

"We must be open-eyed about the actions of hostile states like Russia who threaten the potential growth of the Eastern Neighbourhood and who try to tear our collective strength apart.
