BERLIN, Aug 21 (Reuters) - German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz said on Wednesday that Britain should not expect changes to the existing Brexit deal, adding that the situation had not changed with the change of government in Britain.

"We have prepared a treaty and nobody should expect any of its provisions to be changed," Scholz told a news conference.
