LONDON, Nov 17 (Reuters) - Foreign minister Dominic Raab said on Sunday it was not "remotely likely" that Britain would leave the European Union without agreeing a free trade deal at the end of a post-Brexit transition period.

The governing Conservatives, who are hoping to win a majority in parliament at a Dec. 12 election to push through the Brexit deal Prime Minister Boris Johnson agreed with Brussels, have said they will not extend the transition period.
