Points of the plan, drawn up in London, did not suit European officials.
The head of the delegation of the European Union in the negotiations on Brexit categorically rejected the main points of the London plan on leaving the EU. Michel Barnier called unacceptable the major provisions of the plan in the UK regarding the conditions of exit from the block.
Barnier stressed that, in General, the British government plan agreed on 6 July, there are many positive aspects, but the EU does not agree with the proposals of the London customs agreements and common set of rules for industrial goods. According to him, the Kingdom’s exit from the bloc was agreed at 80%, but the deal runs the risk to fail due to inability to agree on the status of the border between Ireland and British Northern Ireland.
We will remind, the head of the British government this summer, has put forward its plan for Brexit and have ensured that it was approved by her office. The Cabinet members led by Minister of foreign Affairs Boris Johnson resigned.
We will remind, the plan may provide for the adoption by the European Union “rules and regulations” for industrial products, to ensure the smooth production of goods, to transportation of semi-finished products between the UK and EU.
Also may insist on the cessation of free movement of EU citizens between EU and the UK. Preservation of this opportunity, reminded Barnier, is one of the main requirements of Brussels.
Don’t like Barnier, and that the Kingdom will leave the European customs Union. In this regard, the Mei proposes to levy duties on goods exported to the EU.
Finally, one of the main contentious issues so far was the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland. After Brexit it will turn into a border between the UK and the European Union. This means that there are strict passport and customs control. For Irish people living on both sides of the border, it is unacceptable stresses in terms of Mae. Brussels agrees that this problem should be solved, but does not see the desire of London to achieve a real solution.
