Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay suggested Sunday that Britain is open to compromise with the EU over new UK proposals for Northern Ireland, but urged Brussels to show “creativity and flexibility”.
Barclay reiterated Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s latest plans for a managed withdrawal from the bloc on October 31 were “a broad landing zone” ahead of “intense negotiations in the coming days”.
“We need to get into the intensive negotiations… to clarify what the deal is,” Barclay told the BBC.
“We’ve set out very serious proposals including a compromise on our side.
“We now need to see creativity and flexibility on the EU side in order to reach that deal.”—AFP
