(Update) Japan, Britain to Establish New Economic Partnership

   London, Jan. 10 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his British counterpart, Theresa May, agreed Thursday that the two countries will establish a new economic partnership as Britain prepares to leave the European Union.
   The two leaders, meeting in London, agreed that the effort will include exploring the possibility of concluding a bilateral economic agreement. They also agreed to strengthen maritime security cooperation.
   "We will now deepen our strategic partnership further, looking ahead to the challenges and opportunities of the next decade" as Britain leaves the EU, the leaders said in a joint statement released after their meeting.
   In their meeting, Abe expressed hope that Britain will avoid leaving the EU without a deal.
   Abe welcomed Britain's interest in the 11-country Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement. At a press conference, May said she is looking forward to further discussions on the matter.
