The chief negotiator of the European Union for the 'Brexit', Michel Barnier, has denounced Thursday the absence of "decisive" progress on the "core" issues of the talks after the third round of negotiations that took place this week in Brussels . "This week we got useful clarifications on many points, such as the status of frontier workers, aggregation of social security rights, proceedings before courts, but have not recorded decisive progress on the main issues", said the French in a joint press conference with his counterpart David Davis. "At the current rate we are far from finding sufficient progress to recommend to the European Council to start the debate on the future relationship between Britain and the EU as finalized during 2018 output agreement," he added. For his part, Davis stressed that the week of negotiations has been "long" and "detailed discussions" in "many areas". "I think it's fair to say we've had some concrete progress," said the Briton, but acknowledged that "in some areas some way to go." With regard to the question of the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland, Barnier noted that discussions during the third round have been "fruitful" and that has been made "real progress" in relation to the Area Common Travel (CTA acronym in English). The EU chief negotiator on this point indicated that both parties have clarified the pending work on cooperation between the north and south of the border "within the Good Friday Agreement." Davis has described as a "good discussion" the talks on this subject, at the same time has ensured that there is a "high degree of convergence" on issues "key" of the Irish border.

But this week said that its obligations are limited to the last payment to the EU budget before leaving ", said the French, after warning that" not fair "that the taxpayers of the EU to 27 have to assume obligations contraías when the block was formed by 28 members. David has acknowledged that there are "significant differences" to resolve on the issue of the bill Brexit and that there are different "legal positions" while affirmed that the final agreement on the issue "should be in accordance with the law" and "the spirit continued association with the EU UK".
