Reuters: Tim Barrow will be appointed British Ambassador to the European Union

According to the agency, David Frost will lead a team to negotiate the future relationship between London and Brussels.

From 2011 to 2015, Barrow was Head of the UK Diplomacy in Russia, and from 2006 to 2008 he was UK Ambassador to Ukraine. According to the agency, the representative of the British Prime Minister in the negotiations on Brexit David Frost will lead the team for negotiations on the future relations between London and Brussels.

The UK is to leave the European Union on January 31, after which a transition period will begin, during which the relations between the European community and the UK will not undergo almost any changes. This phase should end on December 31, during which time London intends to negotiate a new trade agreement with Brussels. Despite the fact that experts and EU representatives note that this is a very short period for negotiations, London does not intend to extend the transition period.
