By Kate AllenUK’s border with Europe will be completely open to UK and EU nationals within a year, but there is no immediate plan to extend the Schengen agreement, the UK’s first EU-wide accord.
The Schenger Agreement has already been suspended and is not expected to be extended in time for the Brexit talks, but the UK is likely to have to do a lot of travelling if it is to keep its borders open.
This will be a major headache for Britain’s businesses and consumers, as well as the EU, which could be forced to do more than it can do alone.
The British government said it would also consider the “immediate” withdrawal of EU nationals from the UK to avoid a repeat of the problems faced by EU citizens living in Britain.
This is despite Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s pledge that the UK would not be leaving the EU without a deal with Brussels, despite Brexit Secretary David Davis saying that “there is no guarantee” it would be possible.
The EU has called on the UK not to take back its EU nationals after Brexit, which it said would “open the floodgates for the migration crisis to return”.EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that “no one should be left in the dark”, adding: “The UK cannot wait for the EU to take us in.
There are now two options: either the UK can make a positive decision on the Brexit negotiations or leave the EU.”
There is a long-standing agreement between the UK and the EU that EU nationals who live in the UK for more than 12 months cannot stay in the country.
But since the Brexit vote in June, the two sides have been at loggerheads over the timing of the withdrawal, and have been trying to hammer out a plan.
The European Commission, the EU executive, said on Tuesday that the European Parliament and the Council would discuss the EU’s plans for the withdrawal at the next meeting of the bloc’s governing body, the European Council, on December 6.
The negotiations have been delayed due to a lack of clarity in the talks.EU officials say that the EU is ready to accept a phased exit for the time being, but have said they will not make a final decision until the end of the year.
But they have repeatedly emphasised that a deal is not in the cards.
The UK and other EU members have complained that the United Kingdom has been “over-prepared” to the departure of its EU citizens, but ministers have also acknowledged that the process is “complex”.
But they say that is not necessarily a bad thing, saying that the two main parties in the Brexit negotiation have agreed that there will be no deal until a deal has been agreed.
They are also keen to stress that it is not a “one-size-fits-all” solution, saying the UK needs to be able to deal with people from other EU countries as well.EU states have argued that the deal with the UK on free movement has to be “fair” and “sufficient”.
“The EU-UK relationship is one of the most valuable economic, cultural and diplomatic relationships in the world,” the European Commission said.
“The EU and the UK share a strong and enduring relationship of mutual trust and co-operation.”
The UK said it welcomed the European Union’s commitment to a smooth transition.
“We are confident that, once this transition is complete, the single market and customs union will remain an integral part of our bilateral relationship,” it said.
Theresa May, the Prime Minister, has said that the government will be seeking an agreement with the EU on a transition period of about two years.
This means that there would be no transitional period for EU citizens who leave the UK after Brexit.
The United Kingdom is also planning to make its divorce settlement more flexible.
It has said it wants to keep the right to “associate” with the European Economic Area and allow the UK the same freedom of movement as other EU citizens.
The government is also seeking to extend a clause in the divorce settlement allowing for the UK Government to pay its way into the EU and continue to use its own currency.
But it has also said it does not want to take up any further EU services, and will instead use a basket of financial services from the EU.UK ministers say that these concessions will be part of a transitional arrangement to allow the British Government to maintain a degree of flexibility while it tries to negotiate a better deal.
The Brexit deal will take about a year to negotiate and will be signed off by the UK Prime Minister in December.
It is unclear whether the transitional arrangements will be included in any of the UK-EU trade deals after Brexit is concluded.
The divorce deal has angered many EU nations, which are worried about what it would mean for their citizens living abroad.
The German Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, said in an interview with the Bild newspaper that “if there is one thing that is certain, it is that the new arrangements will undermine the EU
