Kyiv: The UK will not have a transition period after Brexit if its parliament does not accept the agreement on withdrawal from the EU.
This was stated by EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier.
“While listening to the debate in the House of Commons, it seems to be a dangerous illusion that the UK can take advantage of the transition process in the absence of an exit agreement. Let me clearly explain: the only legal basis for the transition period is an agreement. No Agreement means no transition period,” said Barnier.
We recall that the final agreement on Brexit between the UK and the European Union was close to closure, but the British government rejected the plan of Brussels on the border with Ireland.
