Though Brexit negotiations have been stifled, the UK is confident that their very reasonable demands call for a plausible trading deal between EU-UK relations. This comes after Health Secretary Matt Hancock optimistically declared what the new demands may encourage between both parties.
Relations between EU-UK trading parties were at a long stand-still as both parties could not find common ground to negotiate plausible trading deals which benefit both parties. The UK has been criticized by EU representative Michel Barnier for negotiating deals which did not abide by the integrity of the Brexit policies.
This put a pause on all negotiations for some time as both parties could not develop a trading deal which does not violate either side’s policies. Mr Barnier added that there has been no progress in Brexit negotiations due to the UK’s tendency of not committing to an already confirmed negotiation.
However, Health Secretary Matt Hancock hopes that relations between the two could be mended by means of amicable negotiating, as when asked about the possibility of there being a no-deal exit Mr Hancock affirmed that this may be avoided due to the UK’s very reasonable demands.
Mr Hancock stated that “I very much hope that we avoid that because our position is very reasonable It’s that any agreement we reach must reflect the fact that the UK is an independent sovereign state”.
The UK is currently within a transitional period which is due to end in December, but is still obligated to operate as a member of the EU until then.
