LONDON – British Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove said on Sunday that there was a trade agreement to be made with the European Union but would require a compromise from the bloc.
The two sides on Friday called on the other side to provide a foundation in negotiations on post-Brexit relations after saying that the latest round of talks had ended with little progress being made.
Gove said issues such as fisheries and the so-called “level playing field” rules to ensure fair competition persisted.
“We explained to the EU that we could not make an agreement on these conditions,” he told Sky News. “But I am convinced that there is an agreement to be done. It only requires a degree of flexibility on the part of the EU which I am sure they will appreciate what they need to show.”
