VIENNA (Reuters) - Brexit minister David Davis said on Tuesday he was certain Britain and the European Union could reach a deal but urged the bloc to see securing an agreement as a “mutual endeavour”.

“Turning this into a functioning economic partnership will be a mutual endeavour, as will the design of mechanisms to ensure both sides respect open trade and fair competition,” he told an audience in Vienna.
