The EU made a tough statement on further negotiations on Brexit


The revision of the agreement on the conditions for the withdrawal of Great Britain from the European Union, which was agreed on November 25 last year, is excluded. Representative of the European Commission (EC), Mina Andreeva, said this at a press conference in Brussels on Tuesday at a press conference in Brussels.”As stated in the final document of the EU summit of April 10, any revision of the agreement is excluded, because it is the best and only possible deal,” she said, answering journalists ’questions about whether the EC allows the revision of the document as London wants.

Moreover, Andreeva stressed that at present there are no negotiations at all between Brussels and London on Brexit. “The Chairperson (EC Jean-Claude Juncker) is working, but Brexit has a break,” she noted.

Britain had to leave the EU on March 29, 2019, that is, two years after submitting a written notice of withdrawal. Since the agreement on withdrawal from the EU remains blocked in the British Parliament, which has already rejected it three times, the EU summit on March 21-22 granted London a postponement until April 12. However, May did not manage to bring the process out of the political impasse, after which she sent the EU a request for an extension of this period. On April 11, the European Union and the United Kingdom agreed to a new postponement of the withdrawal of the kingdom from the community – until October 31.
