Brexit deal: EU countries give green light to the agreement

The Committee of Permanent Representatives of the EU countries have approved the provisional application of the agreement on future EU-UK relations from January 1, 2021.





This was announced on Twitter by the spokesman for the committee Sebastian Fischer.

“Greenlight” for a post-Brexit deal, “he wrote.

The next step, he said, will be the final adoption of a decision by the EU Council on a written procedure on the provisional application of the agreement. It is expected on Tuesday, December 29th.

Earlier, the delegations of Great Britain and the EU announced the official completion of negotiations on a trade deal on further relations between the two parties.

Thus, it was possible to avoid a tough “Brexit” — that is, a breakdown of all existing agreements.

Negotiations have lasted since the official exit of the United Kingdom from the EU — February 1.
