Former President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, is considering a no-deal Brexit. During a webinar on Tuesday, Juncker said he no longer saw a trade deal between the EU and the UK.
“No deal is the most likely and possibly the only possible outcome of the negotiations,” Juncker said, according to the business channel. CNBC. Until he left Brussels, the Luxembourger himself played a key role in the talks about the Brexit process.
Juncker was asked for his opinion on the day the eighth and penultimate round of negotiations between the EU and the UK began. Both parties have until the turn of the year to come together, when the transition phase after the British exit the union ends at the end of January.
There are also many voices from the UK about the no-deal scenario. British negotiator David Frost said ahead of the talks that Britain was not afraid to work with the EU on the same basis as Australia, a country with which the Union also has no trade deal.
Johnson undermines new law agreements
