French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian called today for a speedy conclusion of trade talks on Brexit.
Le Drian was quoted by Reuters as telling Radio France Inter that there was an urgent need to reach an agreement, blaming London for the deadlock in private talks on Brexit.
Le Drian pointed out that “the British do not understand the idea of negotiating a well-thought-out agreement that includes talking about all issues,” pointing out that the negotiations are not going well with only two months remaining until the new trade system comes into effect and therefore the countdown has begun and there is an urgent need to discuss The entire package to avoid not reaching an agreement.
It is noteworthy that Britain officially left the European Union on the 31st of last January, but it is still in a transitional phase in which the rules of the European Union will be applied until the 31st of next December, after which the new trade system will enter into force or the rules of the World Trade Organization will be applied in the relations between the two sides. .
