Brexit: EU presidency in London, ‘stop playing’ – Ultima Ora

(ANSA) – BRUSSELS, SEPTEMBER 22 – “Please friends of London, stop playing, time is running out and we need a realistic basis on which to negotiate”. This is the appeal launched to the British government by the German European Affairs Minister Michael Roth representing the EU presidency at the meeting of the General Affairs Council which is also taking stock of the Brexit negotiations.

“We are very disappointed and concerned” by Boris Johnson’s bill because, Roth said, it violates the principles of the Withdrawal Agreement and is totally unacceptable to us. On Monday 28 September, the EU-GB joint committee that deals with the technical aspects of the negotiation will meet again. (HANDLE).
