Brexit comes as a result of the Brexit referendum held in 2016, in which 52% of voters chose to secede from Brussels.

After months of difficult negotiations, the United Kingdom and the European Union reached an agreement on Thursday to avoid a so-called “hard Brexit.”

The agreement, announced by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen as a “good deal,” will regulate trade and security relations starting next year.

“We have regained control of our laws and our destiny,” Johnson said at a press conference from his official residence in Downing Street.

Johnson added that although the negotiations included “heated” discussions, a “good agreement for the whole of Europe” had been reached that would create jobs and prosperity.
