LONDON (Reuters) – The British Cabinet Office’s ministry, Michael Gove, said on Sunday that a trade deal should be made with the European Union, but that would require a compromise from the bloc.
Both parties on Friday called on the other to give ground to negotiations on a post-Brexit relationship after saying the latest round of negotiations had ended with little progress.
Gove said issues such as fishing and the so-called “equal terms” rules to ensure fair competition remained as sticky points.
“We are making it clear to the EU that we cannot make an agreement on these terms,” he told Sky News. “But I am convinced that there is a deal that needs to be done. It just requires some flexibility on the EU side, which I am sure they will appreciate that they need to show.”
