British Prime Minister Boris Johnson affirmed yesterday that Britain “can prosper strongly” without a post-Brexit trade agreement with the European Union, the day after the agreement to extend the stalled talks with Brussels.
Johnson, who agreed to extend negotiations in a video call with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, told the BBC that he believed there was an agreement “that must be completed” before Britain leaves the EU’s supervisory system in 2021. He said: “His government” Very serious about the need to control our own laws and regulations, ”including those related to fisheries.
Britain formally left the bloc in January but remained bound by most of the bloc’s rules until the end of the year under the terms of the Brexit deal. The current 11-month transition period aims to allow the two sides to agree on their future commercial relationship after nearly five decades of economic and political integration.
Nonetheless, nine rounds of negotiations ended Friday, with both sides saying that there were significant obstacles to the agreement, prompting Johnson and von der Leyen to intervene.
The two leaders, who held the last talks on Brexit in June, asked their negotiators to “work intensively to bridge the gap” between the two sides. But fears are growing that travel and trade mayhem will occur if progress is not made and the resulting so-called Brexit without a deal. “I think we can thrive well under these conditions,” Johnson said. The two sides set a European summit to be held on October 15 as a final date in order to reach an agreement that can be ratified in time to take effect at the end of next December.
