There is still a gap between Brussels and London in the post-Brexit talks on trade relations between the two sides, as revealed at the dinner of the President of the Commission, Ursula von der Lain, with the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Jason , late Wednesday night in Brussels.
The head of the European Commission noted that the two sides remained “far away” after the “lively” – as he characterized them – talks on Wednesday.
“We agreed that the negotiating teams should meet immediately to try to resolve these crucial issues,” he added.
He announced in advance that decisions will be made by the end of the weekend.
For their part, British government sources set a new milestone on Sunday.
They said there was an “honest discussion” with Ms von der Layen and Mr Johnson agreeing that “very big gaps” remained.
“The British Prime Minister and the President of the Commission have agreed to continue the discussions of the negotiating teams in the coming days,” the source said.
