UK Prime Minister Theresa May meets President Macri in Argentina
(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Argentine President Mauricio Macri held talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May at the sidelines of the G20 in Buenos Aires on Friday (November 30), as the British leader seeks to sell her Brexit deal at home and abroad.
Trade tensions and protectionism have dominated the agenda at the Argentina meeting.
And May is eager to explain that Brexit will not mean a Britain closed off to the world.
The deal would see Britain leave the bloc in March with continued close trade ties, but she now faces an uphill struggle to get it approved by a deeply divided British parliament.
She will use a two-day trip to the Group of 20 summit in the Argentine capital Buenos Aires to promote both her deal and Britain's post-Brexit role on the global stage.
May will also push the case for reform of the World Trade Organization, a senior British official said, including increasing transparency, updating dispute settlement processes and promoting trade in services and digital alongside goods.
