Belgium: Next stage of Brexit talks could be months away

European Commission's Chief Brexit Negotiator Michel Barnier said that despite a “constructive week,” more work is “needed in the coming weeks and coming months” until Brexit negotiations can move on. He was speaking on Thursday, following the latest round of Brexit talks. Speaking alongside British Secretary of State for Exiting the EU David Davis in Brussels Barnier stated, «We have had a... Еще constructive week, yes, but we are not yet there in terms of achieving sufficient progress,» in spite of the “new dynamic created by Prime Minister May’s speech.” He continued stressing, «The UK explained also that it is not in a position yet to identify its commitments taken during membership. For the EU, the only way to reach sufficient progress is that all commitments undertaken at 28 [member states] are honoured at 28.» Davis praised the latest round of Brexit talks saying, «I believe that thanks to the constructive and determined manner in which both sides have conducted these negotiations, we are making decisive steps forward,» adding, «The prime minister's speech sets out the scale of our ambition here, as well as a proposal for a simple clear time limited period of implementation.»
