BRUSSELS, Sept 28 (Reuters) - The European Union will not
leave the negotiating table with Britain on a future trade
relationship even if London pushes ahead with its withdrawal
treaty-breaking internal market bill European Commission Vice
President Maros Sefcovic said.
Speaking at a news conference after a meeting of a joint
committee of EU and British officials tasked with solving
difficult issues, Sefcovic noted however that the internal
market bill had created a lot of political difficulties.
"The introduction of the internal market bill and the
contentions articles created a very difficult political
situation," Sefcovic said, noting it was a "breach of trust".
But he said: "It will never be the EU which would cause the
end of the negotiation on the future partnership between the EU
and the UK."
