United Kingdom meat industry reacts to Brexit transition agreement

United Kingdom meat industry reacts to Brexit transition agreement”

"The PM is pleased that we've made more progress in the European Union negotiations and that we are able to give businesses and citizens certainty by the implementation period which will deliver a smooth Brexit and will allow us to trade on the same terms as now until 2020", the spokesman told reporters. He said the two sides had agreed to set up a joint committee to resolve any disputes during that transition.

In any case, he insisted, a so-called backstop solution "must form part of the legal text".

The UK and EU have agreed a "large part" of the agreement that will lead to the "orderly withdrawal" of the UK from the Union, it was announced this morning.

The future of Ireland's border with Northern Ireland - which will be the EU's only major land border with Britain after Brexit - was widely seen as the biggest obstacle to an agreement on a 21-month transition deal to avoid a "cliff edge" Brexit.

"We still have little idea of what will happen to the Northern Ireland border, and the Government has been forced to agree a shortened transition period to December 2020", he said.

United States detecting Taliban interest in Afghan peace talks: Mattis
This comes amid a growing push for the Taliban to consider the newest peace deal being offered by the Afghan President. Afghanistan experts have long anxious that a precipitous US exit could usher in defeat for the Afghan army.

"We must have a workable and practical solution to avoid a hard border and protect North-South cooperation", Barnier said, reiterating the European Union line. "But it remains our intention to achieve a partnership that is so close as to not require specific measures in relation to Northern Ireland".

We reiterate that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed and the European Parliament, as with the European Council, will decide independently whether the final negotiated withdrawal agreement is acceptable or not.

As for citizens' rights, European citizens from the 27 states of the EU who arrive in Britain during the transitional period will have same rights as citizens who arrived before the Brexit, said the deal.

"There is nothing from today's announcement to concern us".

The EU and the United Kingdom still have to continue discussions on several issues, including data protection, the circulation of products, as well as so-called governance issues - such as the role of the ECJ and Britain's participation in Euratom, Europol and Eurojust.

Samsung To Offer Same-Day Repair Service For Galaxy Smartphones

Until last week, the European Union was insisting that no transition deal could be agreed before both sides had signed off on a legal text codifying the December report, including the language on the Border.

Davis said businesses could "continue to operate and invest with confidence", as the agreement would serve "as a platform on which we build our future relationship".

Jonathan Powell said Theresa May has committed "the worst possible sin a negotiator can commit" - having "boxed herself in", in an article for The Independent.

It will be "considerable work", Barnier retorted, in another show of the two men's - and the two sides - different approach to what remains to be done.
