Michel Barnier meets British negotiators TuesdayMonday, 04 March 2019 14:52
Prime Minister Theresa May wants the withdrawal agreement to be modified. She would like in particular either this "safety net" to be limited in time, or London allowed to terminate it at any time. These requests have been systematically rejected by the EU.
"We can find guarantees to confirm, clarify, ensure Europeans’ good will and good faith, with commitments of legal certainty because they will be ratified by both sides. We are working on it day and night, Barnier said in the press this weekend, but he excludes any amendments to the withdrawal agreement. "Specific details can be given in an “interpretative document”, the form of which remains to be defined, which would come in addition to the Withdrawal Agreement and the political declaration," he said.
