Brexit clashes, UK blames EU: Brussels seeks lion's share

Brexit clashes, UK blames EU: Brussels seeks lion's share

Following the postponement of talks between the United Kingdom and the European Union on reaching an agreement which will follow the exit of the British Union and which will establish the rules of economic exchanges after 31 December, we are still today faced with a situation not of agreement. Britain has blamed Europe for the failure of the talks. "Trade talks on Brexit are still stalled on fisheries issues, governance rules and a contentious resolution, because the European Union is demanding a lot," said Michael Gove, a British government official in charge of Brexit. He added that negotiators are trying to reach an agreement to avert a potential crisis after Britain formally leaves the European Union later this year. "The European Union is still demanding the lion's share of fishing in our waters - which is unfair given that we are leaving the EU. The European Union still wants us to be connected to the way it does things. "The European Union is taking advantage of the moment that if there is any kind of dispute, not to tear everything down, but to impose harsh restrictions on us and I do not think that is right," Gove said. A trade deal would not only guarantee trade, but also support peace in Northern Ireland, although some disagreements are almost certain at the busiest EU-Britain border crossings. REL warns that if no agreement is reached, next year will start with great uncertainty and tariffs on British and European goods.

Merkel demands agreement at all costs

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, on the other hand, said that Britain and the European Union would set a bad example if they failed to reach an agreement on their future relations, but reiterated that the European bloc does not want an agreement at any cost. Britain has angered the European Union with a bill that violates some parts of the agreement that allowed Britain to leave the European bloc in January.

The bill in question gives the UK the power to amend some parts of the trade agreement with Northern Ireland. "I hope we will reach a contractual agreement. "We, Britain and the EU member states, are countries based on the same values, so it would not be a good example for the world if we did not reach an agreement," Merkel said in a virtual meeting with members. of EU committees. However, she has insisted that agreement should not necessarily be reached. "We have made it clear that we do not need an agreement at any cost. "We want one, but otherwise we will take the necessary measures - in each case, the agreement is in everyone's interest," she said. If no agreement is reached, next year will start with great uncertainty and tariffs for British and European goods. This will hurt both sides, but the biggest burden will fall on Britain, which carries out half of its trade with EU countries.
