Johnson urges the EU to work together to avoid reaching an agreement by October 15th

September 7, 2020

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has urged the European Union to step up cooperation on the talks as there is a prospect of reaching the October 15th date without reaching an agreement despite having assured the lack of a pact ” good “would result” for Great Britain.

In a statement due this Monday to be announced by the Press Association news agency, Johnson has assured that the two parties must be ready to accept this scenario and “move on” if there is no agreement at the October European Council is achieved.

In Johnson’s view, leaving the European Union without a trade agreement would also be a “good result”. The UK Prime Minister will also ensure that the country has a trade deal with the European Union “like Australia’s”, which implies that it is based on agreements established by the World Trade Organization (WTO).

“I want to be absolutely clear because, as we said from the start, this would be a good result for the UK,” said Johnson in his message on Monday. “As a government, we are preparing to be ready at our borders and in our ports,” he argues, before clarifying that the British will have “full control” of their legislation and their waters.
