Brussels: Michel Barnier proposed to extend the period of the transition period after the UK’s exit from the EU by one year.
The head of the EU delegation, Michel Barnier, proposed to extend the transitional period after the Brexit by one year. There will be no changes for the population and enterprises. In exchange, the EU expects British Prime Minister Theresa May to make concessions on the Irish border issue.
Now the negotiations about the conditions of Brexit are at an impasse. The heads of state and government of the EU countries hope that the current summit will give a new impetus to this dialogue. Observers do not exclude that the Barnier proposal could lead to a breakthrough in negotiations.
