Baku, September 9, AZERTAC
The European Union's chief negotiator Michel Barnier has warned that two key elements of Britain's post-Brexit trade plan are "not acceptable", according to remarks to a parliamentary committee published on Friday.
The transcript of a hearing held earlier in the week contradicts a claim made by a pro-EU opposition MP that Barnier said the entire proposal was "dead".
However, he made it clear the EU would not accept London's proposals for customs arrangements and for a common EU-UK rule book on goods to ease trade between the sides after Brexit.
