Brexit Bulletin—future UK-EU relationship talks resume to ‘redouble efforts’ towards a deal

European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, and Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, jointly agreed to resume future UK-EU relationship negotiations during a conference call to discuss the state of play on 7 November 2020. With just over 50 days until the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020 (IP completion day), the UK and EU leaders have signalled their intention to ‘redouble efforts’ towards breaking the impasse over level playing field and fisheries. Talks are expected to continue in London the week commencing (w/c) 9 November 2020, while UK and EU leaders remain in ‘personal contact’. Ahead of the resumption of talks, EU chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, highlighted the three keys to unlock a deal in the closing stages of the transition period—made contingent on ‘respect of EU autonomy and UK sovereignty’.
