Brussels and London resume negotiations in which they remain estranged

Brussels and London continue to swim in opposite directions in a sixth round of "Brexit" talks, from which it is not yet expected to be able to move forward enough to enter fully into the next phase, the future relationship between the EU bloc and the United Kingdom.

Brussels, 9 Nov (EFE). - Brussels and London continue swimming in opposite directions in a sixth round of negotiations of the "brexit" from which it is not yet expected to be able to advance sufficiently to enter fully into the next phase, that of the future relationship between the EU bloc and the United Kingdom.

For Brussels, it is still clear that the negotiations are in a first phase, the divorce bill and the rights of citizens, but London wants to push the accelerator and focus on the second chapter, that of future relations, especially commercials.

At the October summit, the Twenty-seven opened the door to "preparatory work" for a second phase of the negotiation if progress was seen, but the block European is afraid of not having conveniently closed before issues such as workers' rights, which may end up being a bargaining chip.

In that same line was pronounced precisely the European Parliament, concerned that progress is being made in negotiations with London on financial matters without first closing issues such as what will happen to community workers in the United Kingdom beyond 2019.

The Twenty-seven have made it clear from the start of the negotiations that the London plan, especially in the commercial and internal market plans, will not be able to be in any case leave the EU but continue to benefit from their prerogatives.

In a speech in Rome this Thursday, just before sitting at the table in Brussels with the negotiator British, David Davis, the representative of the European side for the "brexit", Michel Barnier, said that "it will not be accepted that (the British) continue playing in the same community playground but without the same rules. "

" One can not leave the EU but pretend to have a commercial relationship as before with the other countries, "added the French politician.

Barnier reiterated also the red lines of the EU regarding the rights of citizens and workers in negotiation.

"You can not want to end the free movement of people, but maintaining the goods, services and capital, "he said.

Community sources said in the same sense to Efe that in this round the EU will insist that the future relationship between both, when the United Kingdom becomes third country, can not be "on demand", although there is mutual interest in continuing to work on issues such as the fight against terrorism or change climatic.

"Time is short," Barnier reiterated today, calling for more "clarifications" from the United Kingdom on issues such as the divorce bill, a matter on which the Government Theresa May does not finish making any proposals or figures.

On the other hand, sources close to the delegation of Davis assured that progress is made, although not publicly, on the future of the rights of the 3 million Europeans living in the United Kingdom and the one million British citizens residing in other EU countries.

While in the building of the European Commission discusses the major political issues in the sixth round of negotiations, in the Economic Affairs Committee of the European Parliament the president of the Single Mechanism Supervisory Committee, integrated into the European Central Bank (ECB), Danièle Nouy, ​​warned that the institution has identified "deficiencies" in the relocation plans of several banks After the "brexit".

The ECB is concerned that many entities "delay the restructuring of their operations", and Nouy explained that almost 50 banks have addressed the ECB or the competent national authorities in relation to the impact of the departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union, scheduled for March 2019.

"We also see a trend to relocate banking activities towards investment firms or branches in third countries, which are out of sight of the Single Supervisory Mechanism ", alerted the MEPs, to introduce the necessary changes in the current regulatory framework.

This last round of negotiations, of which Barnier will give an account this Friday at a press conference, coincides politically with a new crisis in Downing Street, after the Minister of International Cooperation, Priti Patel, resigned from the Government of May, for a scandal over unofficial meetings with high Israeli Government charges.

Just a week ago, the British Executive also replaced another of its members, the Minister of Defense, Michael Fallon, following a case of sexual harassment of a journalist.
