DUBLIN (Reuters) – Britain seems to stick to plans to seek free trade deal with EU by end of 2020, even though formal talks have been postponed due to the coronavirus, said the Irish Minister for Finance after talks with his British counterpart.
“My feeling at the moment is that the British government will not change the timetable it has for Brexit,” Donohoe said at a press conference on Friday, citing a conversation with UK finance minister Rishi Sunak a day earlier.
“We have said repeatedly that we think it will already be very demanding to do all of this by the end of the year. This will be a question for the UK … but a pretty demanding program has definitely become even more demanding because of the way COVID-19 (coronavirus) has kept everyone’s efforts. “
