Blog: EU warns UK that Brexit deal breach will scuttle a new deal – WBNG-TV

BRUSSELS (AP) — The 27 European Union nations are presenting a united front to the United Kingdom after the British government said it plans to violate part of their Brexit divorce agreement. The EU is warning that there is little chance of a new trade deal unless the U.K. reverses course. The European Parliament’s point person on Brexit said the EU legislature will refuse to ratify any trade agreement unless Britain drops plans to override parts of the legally binding withdrawal agreement. The two sides have just weeks to negotiate a trade deal if it is to be in place by the time Britain leaves the EU’s economic structures on Dec. 31.
