Boris Johnson, the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, signed the Withdrawal Agreement on January 24, 2020. This marked a significant step forward in the long and contentious process of the UK leaving the European Union.

The Withdrawal Agreement was the result of years of negotiations between the UK and the EU, and included provisions for issues such as citizen`s rights, the financial settlement, and the Irish border. After much debate and several rounds of voting, the UK Parliament finally approved the Withdrawal Agreement in January 2020, paving the way for Johnson to sign it into law.

The signing of the Withdrawal Agreement was seen as a significant milestone for both the UK and the EU. It put into effect the terms of the Brexit deal, which had been agreed upon in principle back in October of 2019. With the Withdrawal Agreement in place, the UK was finally able to formally leave the European Union on January 31, 2020.

Since the signing of the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK and the EU have continued to negotiate the terms of their future relationship. These talks have focused on issues such as trade, security, and cooperation in various areas. While progress has been made in some areas, there are still a number of key issues that need to be resolved before a final agreement can be reached.

Overall, the signing of the Withdrawal Agreement was a historic moment in the Brexit process. It marked the beginning of a new chapter in the UK`s relationship with the EU, and set the stage for future negotiations on the terms of their ongoing relationship. As such, it`s an event that will be remembered for years to come.
