UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — A package of proposals put forward by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday as a final offer on divorce terms with the European Union was rejected by a committee in the European Parliament.
The Special Coordinating Committee on Brexit in parliament stressed in a statement that Johnson’s proposals on the Irish border file (the most contentious issue in the London-Brussels negotiations) do not come even, even remotely, from what the EU considers an acceptable deal as an alternative to a mechanism.
Backstop on Northern Ireland remains part of the European Customs Union during the transition period.
The committee expressed deep concern over Johnson’s offer, calling it “last-minute proposals”, noting that any deal should focus on ensuring peace and stability in Ireland and protecting civilians and the European legal system.
European Parliament concerns concern Johnson’s proposal to organize customs inspections at the Irish border, and that European lawmakers believe the offer is incomplete and does not address the real problems that require a solution.
Johnson said yesterday that his government, if the EU does not support its latest proposals, will not negotiate again with Brussels, but will proceed to withdraw from the European bloc without any agreement, without explaining how he intends to bypass the law adopted by the British Parliament, which prohibits “Brexit without agreement “.
