PARIS: Not having any deal on Brexit would be better than a bad deal, French minister for European affairs Nathalie Loiseau said on Wednesday, adding she still hoped a deal could be reached with Britain regarding its exit from the European Union.

“No deal would be better than a bad deal,” Loiseau told Radio Classique station.

“A good deal is still possible, but time is running out,” she said.

Loiseau’s comments came with British Prime Minister Theresa May due to make a keynote speech to her Conservative Party on Wednesday, in which she is expected to say that Britain’s impending divorce from the EU is an opportunity that opens up a future full of promise.
