‘Narrow path’ to UK trade deal in coming days, says EU diplomat

December 14, 2020

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – There may be a narrow path to a new trade pact with the United Kingdom but some substantial gaps remain, an EU diplomat said on Monday.

“There might be a narrow path to an agreement visible – if negotiations can clear the remaining hurdles in the next few days,” said the diplomat, adding that some progress was made over the last few days of the EU-UK talks.

“But – sometimes substantial – gaps still need to be bridged in important areas like fisheries, governance and level playing field… Success depends on whether London also wants a fair deal and is ready to accept the inherent trade-offs,” the diplomat said.
