Post-Brexit Talks Enter Crucial Phase

Post-Brexit Talks Enter Crucial PhasePost-Brexit Talks Enter Crucial Phase

Britain and the EU will attempt to revive their imperiled trade talks on Tuesday, entering a crucial week of negotiations that could mark the final hope for a deal.
Hundreds of officials will hold video talks all week from London and Brussels, the fourth and last scheduled round of negotiations since Britain formally left the EU on Jan. 31, Euronews reported.
The previous round ended in acrimony with the EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier asking his UK counterpart David Frost to watch his "tone" in a tetchy exchange of letters.
The EU and Britain have until the end of the year to reach a deal on future ties, without which trade links could be seriously compromised, even as the fallout from the coronavirus saps their economies.
According to the terms of the divorce, the two sides have until the end of the month to decide whether to extend the talks by one or two years, but this idea has been rejected by Britain.
