Brexit; One more chance to reach an agreement on a trade agreement

The UK and the European Union are set to renegotiate the post-Brexit trade deal.

An agreement has been reached between British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von Der Lane to discuss the elimination of the No Deal and make a final decision by the end of the year.

The two said in a joint statement that there was still great confusion over key issues and that discussions would be held today in Brussels between mediators David Frost and Michael Barnier.

This was after a phone conversation that lasted for more than an hour between the two leaders.

The statement added that equal opportunity, governance and fisheries were the key issues to be addressed. At the same time, both sides made it clear that no agreement would be practical if these issues were not resolved.

The two leaders’ phone calls came after Barnier and Frost announced on Friday that they were suspending talks following the failure of the latest talks.

At the same time, the UK accused the European Union of trying to introduce new issues at the last minute of the talks.

The UK has been angered by EU fishermen’s insistence that they continue to be allowed to fish freely in UK waters for another 10 years.

Meanwhile, Irish Prime Minister Michael Martin welcomed the announcement that talks would continue. He said that an agreement can only be implemented in the best interests of all and every effort should be made to reach an agreement.

Meanwhile, Brexit party leader Nigel Farage has expressed concern that the prolongation of the talks could lead to the continuation of European law in Britain.

It is hoped that the lack of agreement will not lead to a prolongation of the Brexit. He said that if that happened four and a half years later, the Brexit voter would not approve of it and both sides should try to reach an agreement as soon as possible.

At the same time, the UK will exit the European Single Market and Customs Union from January 1 unless a decision is reached on whether to make a deal or not before December 31. Subsequently, the UK will engage in trade relations in accordance with the terms of the World Trade Organization.
