Mexican Secretary of Economy Ildefonso Guajardo has made it clear that Mexico would negotiate a new free trade agreement with the UK should its citizens vote to leave the EU in June.
William Dartmouth MEP, the UKIP Trade spokesman applauded the Mexican approach and said,
"The statement from Mexico's Foreign Minister demonstrates a simple truth. Nations just like Multilateral institutions, and big business will always prefer what they see to be the status quo. But when that changes they will always adapt to accommodate a new reality.
"Mr Guajardo is just being honest. Of course Mexico has a pre-existing deal with the UK via its deal with the EU, but when Britain leaves in June it will work to set up a new deal reflecting that new exciting reality.
"In practice countries that have Trade agreements with the UK via the EU are likely to continue those trade agreements on BREXIT. Mexico is just the first of many. As it always was the commercial imperative, the desire to trade, is much stronger than politics or politicians."
