British Prime Minister Theresa May says she intends to seize new trading opportunities for a Britain that has voted to leave the European Union, reiterating that “Brexit does indeed mean Brexit” and there will be “no attempt to get out of this.”

In a joint news conference with President Barack Obama, the two leaders sought to downplay the impact of the British exit on their countries’ relationship.

But Obama suggested that London would have to wait its turn before the United States prioritized a new, separate trade deal with a Britain outside the EU. Obama noted the US remains focused on finishing trade deals with Asia-Pacific and the EU.

The president said he believed Britain’s current priority was “figuring out what Brexit means with respect to Europe.”
