TOKYO: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe expressed Tokyo's hope to discuss a new economic partnership with Britain after its planned exit from the European Union at the end of next month.

Abe showed the stance in phone talks with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson while congratulating him on his Conservative Party's victory in the general election in Britain earlier this month.

In reply, Johnson said his country wants to launch discussions on the matter as early as possible after Brexit.

Abe pledged to continue supporting Britain's possible participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership multilateral free trade agreement, which includes Japan and others.
