Members of the Conservative and Labor party in the UK resumed negotiations on the conditions of the country’s withdrawal from the EU, but progress is not yet observed, the Associated Press reports.
High-ranking representatives of both parties have been meeting for several weeks in an attempt to find a compromise on “Brexit”, which would receive support in the British Parliament. But the positions of the parties on Brexit remain far from each other, the Agency notes.
The official representative of the opposition Labor party, responsible for the issue of “Brexit,” Keir Starmer said in an interview with The Guardian that his party is ready to support the deal on “Brexit,” only if it is then put to a referendum.
British Prime Minister Theresa May, in turn, rejected the possibility of a new referendum on “Brexit”, saying that the British had already expressed their decision in the referendum in 2016.
If the inter-party talks fail, the government intends to give the Parliament to vote on several options “Brexit”. Previous similar votes did not bring results.
Britain’s withdrawal from the EU was scheduled for March 29, but the British Parliament did not have time to agree on the terms of withdrawal from the EU by this time. As a result, Brussels and London agreed to postpone to October 31.
