London regrets very little progress in the negotiations with the EU on Brexit

A representative of the British Prime Minister in talks with the EU, David Frost, said the obstacle is “the EU’s insistence on including a set of new and unbalanced proposals on the so-called common rules of the game”.

London regrets very little progress in the negotiations with the EU on Brexit

The United Kingdom regretted that no particular progress had been made in the negotiations with the European Union, putting the responsibility for this on Brussels. This was stated in a statement by the representative of the British Prime Minister in talks with the EU, David Frost, distributed on Friday after the third round of negotiations, which was held by videoconference.

“I regret that we have made very little progress towards reaching agreement on the most significant outstanding issues between us,” he said. “The biggest obstacle to this is the EU’s insistence on including a set of new and unbalanced proposals for so-called common rules of the game that will bind our country to EU laws and standards or define our domestic legal regimes in an unprecedented form for free trade agreements that are not provided for in our political declaration,” Frost added.

The UK left the EU on February 1, 2020 after three years of negotiating the terms of the withdrawal. Brussels and London have agreed on a transition period until the end of this year, during which the United Kingdom is subject to all European rules. During this time, the parties should agree on a document on how to build future relations.
