The European Commission, whose representative, Michel Barnier is the chief negotiator from the EU Brexit, wants to reach agreement on the terms of the separation of Britain from the EU, said the head of the EC Jean-Claude Juncker, speaking in the European Parliament.

«We want the agreement,» he said.

The country and the Union should finally agree on the terms of their separation no later than Nov. If this is not done, the agreement on «divorce» may not be able to pass all necessary ratifications and will enter into force by the time of «divorce» — March 29, 2019. It threatens the «hard» Brexit — not only a break of Britain with the agreement and the legislative acts which it adheres, being a member of the EU, but the uncertainty regarding future relations with the European Union.
