Irish PM Sees Big Gaps in Brexit Talks as Michel Jets In

Irish PM Sees Big Gaps in Brexit Talks as Michel Jets In”

Meanwhile, Charles Michel will meet with Irish Taoiseach Michael Martin on Thursday, a week after the European Commission launched the first step of a legal infringement procedure against the United Kingdom government over its draft Internal Market Bill which would breach the terms of the Irish protocol in the Withdrawal Agreement that took the United Kingdom out of the EU.

Both sides agreed that "significant areas of difference remain" in trade talks, and Downing Street said Mr Johnson told Mr Michel that businesses and citizens needed "certainty very soon".

Formal talks have come to a close but informal discussions are under way this week in London.

The Taoiseach and Mr Michel will meet in Farmleigh in Dublin to discuss issues on the agenda of the European Council, also including EU co-ordination on the health and economic impacts of Covid-19, climate action and how to deepen the EU's relationship with Africa.

"This is a matter of trust", he said, adding that "it is now for the United Kingdom to restore trust and put all its cards on the table".

Mr Sharma said: "When the transition period ends on 31 December 2020, there will be a guaranteed set of changes and opportunities for which businesses need to prepare as the United Kingdom leaves the customs union and single market, including changes to the way businesses import and export goods, the process for hiring people from the EU, and the way businesses provide services in EU markets".

During his visit here, he discussed a number of important issues with Irish Prime Minister, including the Brexit negotiations, European Union coordination on the health and economic impacts of COVID-19, climate action and the EU's relationship with Africa, according to the statement.

He welcomed "quite good progress" in recent weeks and said that "in many areas, the landing zone in the nature of the agreement is pretty clear if not exactly pinned down yet".

"I feel we're some way from a deal if I'm honest, but we are at least having a decent discussion of this", he added.

He was pressed on whether October 15 remained a hard deadline.
