BBC News

Four and a half year after Britain voted to leave the European Union, the two sides have agreed a post-Brexit free trade deal. The negotiations took months, but the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the British public now have everything they were promised. The deal means both sides will continue to be able to trade without tariff being placed on goods. The two sides also agree to independent arbitration if either side accused the other of trying to gain a competitive advantage by watering down regulation. One of the big sticking points have been fishing rights. Mr. Johnson said the UK would have what he called prodigious increases on fishing catches because of the deal. But a representative from the fishing union was skeptical.

Holidaymakers on either side will now need a visa. There will be a new point-based system for immigration on Britain which the government says would put would-be migrant outside the EU on an equal footing with Europeans. Britain is also ending its involvement in the Erasmus exchange program for European universities and is opening student access to colleges around the world.

The President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen said the deal was fair and the EU will continue cooperating with the UK in areas of mutual interests like climate change. But she told the Europeans now it’s the time to leave Brexit behind.

The Irish Prime Minister Michael Martin said the deal was a good compromise which would avoid a hard border with Northern Ireland.

In other news, state media in Ethiopia said the army has killed dozens of militants a day after a massacre of ethnic groups in the west of the country. Coast guards of the coast of Tunisia have recovered the bodies of 20 migrants who died when their boat capsized. And Chili, Mexico and Costa Rica have become vaccinating thousands of people against Covid-19, the first countries in Latin America to do so.
