LONDON, Nov 6 (Reuters) - U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said on Monday it was vital that any Brexit deal between Britain and the European Union is in the commercial interests of the United States.

“It is ... important that an eventual Brexit agreement takes into account our commercial interests, and does not hinder development of a closer post-Brexit U.S.-UK relationship by continuing divergent standards and regulations and other protectionist measures,” Ross said in a speech in London.
