Britain rejects any extension of a Brexit transition interval or additional talks previous this 12 months, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman mentioned Monday as negotiations in Brussels went right down to the wire.
“Time is obviously now in very short supply. We are in the final stages. We are prepared to negotiate for as long as we have time available, if we think an agreement is still possible,” the spokesman advised reporters.
But he burdened: “We’ve been clear on multiple occasions that we won’t be extending the transition period. That remains the case.”
Asked whether or not talks may proceed subsequent 12 months, on the premise of a provisional deal to keep away from a cliff-edge divorce on December 31, the spokesman added: “I can rule that out.”
Unless the EU provides floor on the principle excellent points, Johnson believes “it won’t be possible to reach an agreement” and Britain will “prosper” on stripped-down buying and selling phrases, he mentioned.
