The agreement between Great Britain and the European Union on the transition phase almost two years after the historic divorce of the Brexit.
A solution of “support” on the issue of the future of the Irish border was agreed by both parties, weeks after Prime Minister Theresa May said that the idea would not be accepted by any British minister.
After an “intensive” weekend of talks in Brussels, Barnier said the two sides were “in agreement on a large part” of the divorce treaty governing the terms of Britain’s departure after four decades of membership.
“We have reached an agreement on the transition period,” Barnier told a press conference with Davis.
The transition will begin on Brexit day – March 29, 2019 – and last until December 31, 2020, and during that period, Britain “will no longer participate in the European Union decision-making process,” Barnier said.
