Following the negotiations on the 2nd until late at night, on December 3 local time, the negotiations on the future relationship between Britain and Europe continued intensively in London, and the two sides were eager to seek compromises in key areas.
In an interview with Irish independent radio station Newstalk, Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coviny said that an agreement may be reached in the next few days.
Koveni said that the EU needs to “tighten its nerves” and trust the EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier. He added: “I believe that if we do so, it is very likely that an agreement will be reached in the next few days.”
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Wednesday that the UK remains “absolutely committed” to reaching as many agreements as possible. He said that the negotiations between the two sides are still going on, which is regarded as a crucial week, and the EU side “knows what the UK bottom line is”.
Since March this year, Britain and Europe have been negotiating, hoping to determine the future relationship between the two sides before the end of the Brexit transition period on December 31.
At present, fishing rights, a level playing field and how to implement the agreement remain outstanding issues. Fishing rights in particular have been a “stumbling block” in the negotiations, and as the negotiations come to an end, this issue remains the key crux of the negotiations.
