Electoral Manifesto, Louis Grech, told the new British High
Commissioner, Mr Stuart Gill that Malta wants to maintain strong
ties between the two countries, even after Brexit.
Mr Grech said that, though Malta regretted the British decision

on many fronts. At the same time, both countries knew that
there would be consequences to the exit of the U.K. from the
European Union, but the U.K. will always have a strong relationship
