EU says Brexit trade deal possible within days after Johnson offer Brexit

A Brexit trade and security deal could be sealed earlier this week after EU chief negotiator Boris Johnson made a key offer over the weekend. Michael Barnier, Told ambassadors at the camp in Brussels.

Barnier said the Prime Minister’s acceptance of the need for a contract-level mechanism to ensure fair competition has opened the door as regulatory standards vary over time. His comments came despite Downing Street’s suggestions that no deal was likely to be struck.

However, Barnier said talks on EU access to British fishing waters had backfired. The UK filed a paper on fisheries on Monday seeking to remove it from the negotiating table on Thursday.

Ambassadors and MEPs in Brussels are being trained to work on the so-called “law of evolution”, the UK’s action to ensure unilateral fees help if standards differ significantly, and the “architecture” of how it works.

Barnier said there were three scenarios: an agreement this weekend was approved by the European Parliament on December 28; Breakdown in negotiations; Or at the end of the year the contract is seen and the contract is “temporarily used” to avoid leaving without a contract, the MEPs gave their approval in 2021.

An EU ambassador said: “There may be a narrow path to an agreement now – negotiators will be able to resolve the remaining obstacles in the next few days. There has been some progress in negotiations over the past few days, but – sometimes substantially – gaps still need to be narrowed in key areas such as fisheries, governance and level sports.

“The EU will continue to negotiate with its constructive, peaceful and conciliatory approach. Success depends on whether London wants a fair deal and is willing to accept internal trade deals.”

Barnier said Downing Street has now adopted the principle that there should be a way to ensure that trade flows are not distorted as both sides develop their environmental, social and labor standards over time and fail to exchange with one another. He described the solution as “unilateral measures” or fees, which could be applied after a certain period of time.

He said the implementation of such a mechanism could take up to December, but stressed the growing differences over fishing access as the biggest hurdle.
