EU will "for sure" reach post-Brexit free trade deal with Britain

COPENHAGEN, April 27 (Reuters) - The European Union will reach a free trade deal with Britain after the country leaves, the bloc's trade commissioner said on Thursday.

"It's uncharted territory but I'm sure we will solve it. We will have a free trade agreement, that is for sure," Cecilia Malmstrom told a conference in Copenhagen.

When asked again whether she was certain, Malmstrom said: "Of course". (Reporting by Julie Astrid Thomsen, writing by Stine Jacobsen; editing by John Stonestreet)
