Prime Minister Theresa May said in a letter to the European Union on Wednesday that the bilateral cooperation in the fight against crime and terrorism would be weakened if Britain left the bloc without a new deal on trade and other matters. Asked in an interview with France's Le Figaro whether Britain was looking to exchange security cooperation against a trade deal, Mr. Johnson rejected that information and said London just wanted to confirm its historic contribution to the security and stability of Europe as something that is unconditional. He said Britain would continue to maintain the cooperation with the EU for the benefits of the whole Europe and the world.
