EU poised to CAVE IN: 27 nations finally meet to discuss Brexit TRADE

THE European Union will today begin to map out their future relationship with Britain after Brexit for the first time since the nation voted to leave.

EU ambassadors will meet today to discuss its future relationship with the EU


Ambassadors from the 27 member states will start work on the next phase of talks, including a two-year transition period and a possible trade deal.The meeting, described as a “brainstorming exercising” by EU sources, signals a positive development for Britain because it means talks could soon progress to the second phase once EU leaders have given the green light.

It is also a sign the EU is coming round to Britain’s way of thinking after Prime Minister Theresa May asked EU nations to agree a transition period during which the UK could still have access to the single market after Brexit.

It comes despite both Germany and France preparing draft proposals to the EU to block any progress in Brexit talks until “sufficient progress” in the divorce bill is made.

We’ll see during the meeting how far member states want to go or how they want to block discussions on transition and the future relationship

Brussels previously warned Mrs May they will not begin discussions with Britain until at least December due to stalled negotiations over the country’s exit bill.An EU source told AFP: “We’ll see during the meeting how far member states want to go or how they want to block discussions on transition and the future relationship.”While another official said the talks would be “stratospheric” to look at the bigger picture of the EU’s future without Britain.

The meeting comes before Brexit Secretary David Davis meets Michel Barnier for the sixth round of formal talks.

Mr Davis had invited the EU chief negotiator to London for talks this Wednesday, but it was not possible because the Brussels official had a prior engagement.The EU team was also unable to accept a UK proposal for talks early next week, so negotiators will therefore meet on Wednesday and Thursday of next week before Mr Davis travels to Brussels on the Friday.Mr Davis said this would provide time for the EU27 to prepare its position on the issues of trade and the transition to a new relationship in time for a European Council summit in December, when it is hoped they will give the green light to the second phase.
