Britain, EU leaders will break out, negotiate free trade agreement


London: Britain and the European Commission will review the negotiations between the two sides on the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) after Brexit on Saturday and discuss the next step. Officials gave this information after week-long negotiations between the two sides on the initial free trade agreement. The agreement will come into effect after the Brexit transition period ends on 31 December.

Officials said, “British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Union President Ursula von der Leyen will review the FTA negotiations on Saturday and consider further steps.” There has been little progress on the FTA since Britain split from the European Union at the end of January. Both sides agreed that if we have to finalize this agreement before the completion of the Brexit transition period, there is very little time left for it.
