At a time when relations between Brussels and London are non-existent, EU political leaders have postponed a second vote to ratify the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (Brexit) between the United Kingdom and the group. Great time, go ahead and express.
Relations with Northern Ireland worsened when the British announced plans to end the Brussels bureaucracy. “Recent developments with the United Kingdom do not bode well for reaching an agreement,” a parliamentary spokesman was quoted as saying.
“There is no need to make a decision now,” the official added, adding that there will be other opportunities to meet and decide before the next plenary session in April.
The futures relationship agreement between the UK and the European Union, which paved the way for free trade in quotas and tariffs, came into effect temporarily in January. However, the MEPs have not yet sealed the deal in a formal vote to formalize the group’s approval, but that moment is not over.
MEPs have joined the chorus of criticism from Brussels against the UK’s decision to unilaterally extend the grace period for supermarket goods trade inspections. Critics argue that the move violates the Brexit deal protocol with Northern Ireland.
Analyzing the dispute in the region, MEPs may postpone voting until the end of April. Both sides agreed to suspend the agreement until the end of next month.
The deadline has already been extended after the European Union agreed that it could not visit on February 28 to approve the deal. Eurocrat wanted more time to translate the Brexit trade agreement into more than 20 official official languages.
Despite the clear disappointment, MEPs are expected to approve the deal. At the same time, EU member states are looking for alternatives to keep the UK in line with its post-Brexit commitments.
