Brexit-wary Japan executives to talk with United Kingdom trade chief

Shinzo Abe has said he has faith in the future of the British economy after Brexit

She also referred Beijing as the key to defuse the tensions.

Speaking in Japan, Mrs May insisted she was "not a quitter" and would still be Prime Minister at the next election, which is scheduled for 2022.

Mrs May's revelation came as former Tory leader William Hague added his backing for Mrs May, despite her loss of the Tories' House of Commons majority at June's General Election.

"I think it's going to be hard for Theresa May to lead us into the next general election".

"We need to get Brexit done". I've had conversations with 50 or so colleagues during the summer and the overwhelming feeling is she's there, she's got a job to do and then let's see what the performance looks like.

With a nod to her trade discussions in Japan, Mrs May said:"But it's also about building global Britain, trading around the world".

The result sparked speculation of a leadership challenge.

"But we also need to ensure that after we have left the European Union, global Britain is out there trading around the world, standing tall in the world and that we deal with some of the remaining injustices at home".

Another added that the Tory leader was "harbouring delusions".

Pervez Musharraf declared fugitive in ex-PM Benazir Bhutto assassination case
The conviction of the police officers will remain weak unless those giving orders to them were also tried and convicted. A court in Pakistan has acquitted five men of murdering the country's former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto , in 2007.

The London Evening Standard, now edited by George Osborne, the Conservative sacked by May as finance minister when she became prime minister a year ago, described her pledge to run again as "Like the Living Dead in a second-rate horror film". "Frankly, she is a disaster".

On Wednesday, Theresa May said she meant to lead her party into another election, whenever that was.

Theresa May wants to fight the next general election as leader of the Conservative Party, she has revealed.

The Prime Minister has used her trip to push the message she wants her premiership to stand for more than Brexit.

The pragmatic Mrs May must surely know her chances of leading the party into a 2022 contest appear vanishingly small at the moment - even assuming her administration stays afloat that long.

"Theresa May leads a zombie government".

"The sooner the public has the chance to vote out her and her government the better for our country's future".

"These are real issues that we need to be dealing with and I'm there to do it".

Britain's freedom to forge new trade deals independently of the European Union - as a result of Brexit - has been championed by Westminster, but businesses have frequently expressed trepidation about how existing trade relationships will work after leaving the EU. "Let's get some progress for the British people first; I think that's the priority", he told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
