France will not indiscriminately sign a #Brexit deal on 31 December says minister

| February 20, 2020
France would not sign a bad post-Brexit deal with the United Kingdom on 31 December just for the sake of agreeing one to meet a deadline, said French European Affairs Minister Amelie de Montchalin on Wednesday (19 February), writes Sudip Kar-Gupta.

“We must not cede to the pressures of a timetable,” Montchalin told a hearing of the French Senate.

Britain left the EU in January with an 11-month, business-as-usual transition period, and will need to agree new trading terms from January 2021 to avoid potential disruption to commerce.
