Our director Vladimír Bartovic commented for Pravda.sk the Brexit negotiations in connection with the progress made on the EU Summit.
London and the Union had basically very different positions at the beginning of the negotiations. The EU wanted the rights of its citizens to be fully respected. It was also requested that there in no physical border between Ireland and Northern Ireland, which in fact means that Northern Ireland will remain part of the single Union market. The Union also wanted financial compensation at a relatively high level.
