“Brexit” agreement difficult to reach, Britain accused of wasting valuable time by EU

The EU and the UK are in the seventh round of talks on the “brexit” agreement this week. Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator, said on August 21 that it was unlikely to reach a “brexit” agreement with the UK at this stage, accusing the British government of “wasting precious time”. According to the guardian on the 21st, EU chief negotiator Barnier expressed disappointment and concern after two days of talks with British chief negotiator David Frost on the “brexit” agreement. He believed that Britain failed to understand the EU’s “red line” in terms of fair competition environment and workers’ rights and interests. David Frost, Britain’s chief negotiator, said in a statement on the 21st that he believed that the possibility of reaching a “brexit” agreement still existed, but it was not easy to achieve. “Despite the useful discussions this week, little progress has been made.” Earlier, Frost said he hoped to reach an agreement in September, but there were still problems to be solved in many “important areas”. < / P > < p > in the negotiations between EU and UK, fishery policy is one of the focuses.
