LONDON, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Britain wants a "clear assurance"
from the European Union that it has fundamentally changed its
approach to trade talks for them to resume, a spokesman for
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday, saying it had to
be a genuine negotiation.
"What the UK's chief negotiator needs to see is a clear
assurance from the EU that it has made a fundamental change in
approach to the talks and that this is going to be a genuine
negotiation rather than one side being expected to make all of
the moves," the spokesman told reporters.
He added that the UK's chief negotiator, David Frost, would
have to be satisfied from officials in Brussels that this was
the case to be able to advise Johnson to resume the talks.
