Belgium: EU ‘keen’ to understand how UK PM’s speech will translate into negotiations — Barnier

«The European Union is keen and eager to understand better how the UK government will translate the prime minister’s speech into negotiating positions,” European Commission Chief Negotiator Michel Barnier said, Monday. He was speaking at a press conference in Brussels following the fourth round of Brexit talks with State for Exiting the European Union David Davis. Barnier said that before... Еще transition negotiations could start “real progress” must be made on “main issues — citizens, Ireland, financial settlement.” In his speech, Davis said “we both want to avoid changes to the way citizens enjoy their rights and our proposals will deliver that.” Talking about the financial settlement, Davis said “as part of smooth and orderly exit, we do not want our EU partners to worry that they will need to pay more or receive less over the remainder of the current budget plan as a result of our decision to leave.” The meeting comes after British Prime Minister Theresa May’s speech in Florence, Italy, on 22nd of September, in which she sought to break the deadlock in the UK’s Brexit negotiations.
