Britain does not intend to extend Brexit negotiations

Boris Johnson is confident that Brexit negotiations should end in 2020.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he rules out extending the transition period in the country’s exit from the EU to 2021.

According to him, the negotiations must be completed by the previously agreed deadline of December 31, even if the parties fail to reach an agreement on controversial points.

Thus, in just one week, London and Brussels must agree on the format of the future relationship and conclude a free trade agreement.

“The transition period will end on December 31. Our position remains unchanged,” ITV quoted Johnson as saying.

Recall that the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and the head of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon called for an extension of the negotiations period.
