Monday, 2nd March Daily Roundup
Here’s a quick summary of what has happened around the world over the last 24 hours, brought to you exclusively by British Herald.
Britain and the EU kicked off talks today on how their relationship will shape up after Brexit, with half a trillion euros worth of annual trade and close security ties at stake in what are bound to be tense talks. Both sides say they want to reach a deal by the end of the year so that new cooperation on everything from aviation to fisheries to student exchanges can kick in from 2021. Johnson also warned he would drive a hard bargain with the United States in upcoming trade talks as the government sets out its negotiating position today.
Johnson should “turbocharge” policies to cut Britain’s carbon emissions so the country can lead by example when it hosts a major U.N. climate summit in Glasgow in November, according to campaign groups.
On local coronavirus alert, 13 new infections have been confirmed bringing up the total number to 36, and Boris Johnson expects the number to rise further.
North Korea fired two unidentified projectiles off the east coast into the sea today, South Korea’s defence ministry said. The ministry said the projectiles were fired from the eastern coastal city of Wonsan, where North Korea has fired a series of short-range missiles.
The ministry did not provide details of the projectiles but said it is watching for any additional launches.
