Global News published this video item, entitled “EU leaders say agreement with UK “worth every effort” amid Brexit negotiations, but won’t compromise” – below is their description.
Gathering in Brussels for the EU Summit, European Union leaders said they agreed a “fair” new partnership with Britain was “worth every effort” but that the bloc would not compromise at any cost and was ready for an abrupt split in trade worth a trillion euros every year as a year-end deadline for negotiations nears. “We want a deal, but obviously not at any price. It has to be a fair agreement that serves the interests of both sides. This is worth every effort,” said German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Britain left the EU in January and the estranged allies have since been locked in complex negotiations to try and keep trading without tariffs or quotas from 2021. Talks have narrowed gaps on issues from social welfare to transport but three contentious areas have so far prevented a deal: fair competition, dispute resolution and fisheries, which is particularly important to France. “In no case shall our fishermen be sacrificed for Brexit,” French President Emmanuel Macron said on arriving in Brussels, adding that France is ready for a no-deal situation if their conditions are not met. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said Britain would reflect on the Brussels meeting before deciding next steps.
