The EU and the UK prematurely stopped another round of negotiations on Brexit.
The first meeting of the negotiator groups during the coronavirus pandemic took place on Monday. After four days of face-to-face negotiations, the representative of the European Commission on Brexit, Michel Barnier, said that serious differences remain between the EU and the UK.
In turn, the representative of the British Prime Minister David Frost said that the meeting was very important, but on a number of issues to come to a common denominator again failed.
The most difficult issue remains the catch of fish. Europe insists that London should provide access for European fishermen to British fisheries. However, in Great Britain, they consider this unacceptable and incompatible with the status of an independent coastal state.
Britain left the European Union on February 1, 2020, after three years of negotiations. The transition period will last until the end of this year, during which politicians must agree on the conditions for future relations.
