Belfast Telly | EU ready to negotiate trade deal once Brexit happens, incoming president says, next deal
The incoming president of the European Council has said the EU stands ready to negotiate a trade deal once Brexit happens.
ratification of WA or end to A.50 extension period requests by UK
On a visit to Dublin, Charles Michel [WHO?] would not be drawn on whether it was realistic to anticipate an [trade] agreement being struck in the 11 months between the current [A.50 extension period] exit date in 31 January and the end of the [unratified Withdrawal Agreement] transition ["or implementation"] period in  31 December 2020.
While the UK is set to leave in the EU at the end of January, the Prime Minister parliament has yet to ratify the withdrawal agreement in parliament.
"But it will be very important for us to be ready and we are ready, I repeat, we are ready to negotiate, we are ready to be loyal in these negotiations, and we will be transparent and we also be very committed in order to promote the ["]level playing field["] and in order to protect the either ["]single market["] and to try to find the best possible agreement for the ["]future relationship["] [ETA] - and I hope it will be possible in the next months to reach an agreement, I think it would be excellent for our common future."

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
