Nikkei and Mainichi wrote on Sunday that Foreign Minister Motegi plans to hold a videoconference with the UK trade minister on June 9 to launch talks on a bilateral free trade accord, which will be based on the existing Japan-EU EPA. The two sides are aiming to conclude by December a free trade deal, which London is reportedly looking to use as a steppingstone to joining the CPTPP in the future.
