BRITAIN is confident about the next phase of Brexit talks with the European Union and we are making sufficient progress to move on to the second phase in the negotiations.
The second phase to discuss our future partnership will start in October, a spokeswoman for Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday.
She also told reporters the government was considering a “number of precedents” in its proposals on how to resolve any future disputes after Britain leaves the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in March 2019.
“We are confident that we will have made sufficient progress by October to be able to advance talks to the next phase,” she said. “That’s our aim and we are confident that we are working at pace and will be able to get to that point … The prime minister’s view is that both sides need to demonstrate a dynamic and flexible approach to each round of the negotiations.”
