Significant progress has been made in the negotiations on the main issues of EU unification in the United Kingdom, but there has still been no breakthrough, said Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission and Prime Minister Theresa May after working lunch in Brussels on Monday at a joint press conference.
Juncker said the parties were ready to continue the negotiations this week and hoped they could reach agreement on the main issues of the deconstruction before the EU summit of Heads of State and Government on December 14-15.
He added that the May sign was a constructive, friendly conversation, which proved to be a “hard negotiator” and who, despite significant progress, did not reach a full agreement on Monday.
May also reported that both sides worked hard and negotiated and made substantial progress, agreed on many issues, but further consultations are needed.
Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council, has given London a deadline on Monday to make substantive progress on the open issues of the exit conditionality, assuming that in the absence of this, at the next EU Summit, it will not be possible to open the next round of negotiations on the post-Brexit system.
The leaders of the remaining Member States will decide next week whether they have made enough progress to move on to the second round of negotiations, future questions of the relationship.
