Negotiations between Brussels and London on a future (trade) treaty again yielded little during the third round this week.
After a week-long series of sessions via video connection, both parties announced that little or no progress has been made.
EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier called it in Brussels “disappointing that, apart from a few small steps, no progress has been made on key issues”.
He said not to give up to achieve the goal of an ambitious trade treaty. His British counterpart David Frost said in London “that he regrets that very little progress has been made on the main open issues”.
The EU and the United Kingdom are widely separated on several topics, including access to British fishing waters.
