‘Perhaps UK doesn’t want a deal’: Irish FM Coveney says concerns growing amid challenging Brexit talks

According to Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove, Britain could face wider disruption at the end of its transition agreement with the EU if businesses don’t take the deadline seriously.

Beaune, however, sees the warnings as ways of putting pressure on Brussels. France and the EU are keen to reach a deal, he said, but stressed that it is impossible to grant the UK broad access to the EU market unless it agreed to respect the bloc’s health and environmental rules and restrictions on state aid for companies.

“We are preparing for all scenarios,” Beaune said, adding that “the best outcome is still to have an agreement.”

The UK government is pressing ahead with draft legislation that would undercut parts of the 2020 EU divorce treaty.

Ireland’s Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said on Thursday that there is a window of several weeks for the UK and the EU to reach a breakthrough in trade talks before Britain’s upper house of parliament considers the contentious Internal Market Bill.

Gove told parliament on Wednesday that the British government is “absolutely determined to do everything that we can to secure a deal,” adding that “no-deal is in nobody’s interests.”
