The United Kingdom and the European Union have agreed to continue effective Brexit negotiations, including a trade agreement.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen confirmed the matter in a joint statement on Sunday. However, negotiators on both sides say the agreement is unlikely to be reached.
Earlier, the negotiators urged to continue the talks if Brexit is to be implemented including the trade agreement. According to UK government sources, most of the conditions being imposed by the European Union are unacceptable.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen set a deadline of Sunday for the negotiators. If Brexit becomes effective without a trade agreement, it will have an adverse effect on the European economy.
