UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The EU has still not received Brexit proposals from the UK in the framework of the deal approved by Brussels and London on November 25, 2018. This is stated in the message of the European Commission on September 16 following a meeting of EC President Jean-Claude Juncker and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The EC President reminded Johnson that it was London that should offer solutions compatible with the agreement on the country’s exit from the EU.
The communiqué reports on the readiness of the European Commission to consider these proposals and find out whether they meet the objectives of the “back stop” (Northern Ireland’s tenure as part of the EU Customs Union and the single European market after Brexit. – Ed.). However, it is further stated that no such proposals have been received from London.
On September 9, the law on postponing Britain’s exit from the European Union came into force.
According to the document, London will ask the EU to postpone Brexit for three months, until January 31, 2020, if London and Brussels do not make a deal on the conditions for future cooperation by October 19. At the same time, Johnson has repeatedly stated that he intends to implement Brexit even without an agreement until October 31.
If Britain leaves the EU without an agreement, the cost of electricity and fuel will increase in the country, a shortage of medicines and food will begin, and transport links with the continent will be disrupted. Nevertheless, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is determined to implement Brexit on October 31.
