Jeremy Hunt, the British Foreign Minister, said that his Government sees that the European Union is giving positive signals about the demands of the United Kingdom to make changes to the Brexit agreement that Theresa May promotes, which would allow it to be ratified by Parliament.

The minister also commented that although the time is short, if you compare the negotiations were a month ago with the results so far obtained, you can see that it is going in a good direction, emphasizing the work that remains to be done and the need not to exaggerate these signals given by the European Union.

Jeremy Hunt also criticized the article published by French President Emmanuel Macron in the European press in which he criticizes the decision of the British to leave the European Union. This article especially outraged the sectors that are most opposed to Brexit.

The departure of the United Kingdom from the EU

For the next March 29, it is planned the departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union, even though the exit agreement was rejected by the majority of the deputies of the parliament.

If the British Parliament rejects the agreement, it will be questioned the Brexit, and even the process itself, which poses the biggest change in the country's foreign and trade policy in more than 40 years.

The deputies ask that legal guarantees be included in the agreement, to prevent the country from being tied to what is known as the Irish safeguard, which is an insurance policy that would prevent a physical border from being implemented again in Ireland.

Jeremy Hunt also said that the European Union realized that a majority can be obtained in Parliament to approve the treaty since it is seeing how those who opposed the agreement, are now talking there are legal guarantees, so they avoid safeguarding.

The Government of the Prime Minister, Theresa May, negotiates with the European Union to achieve these guarantees, hoping that the more radical conservative deputies and their allies of the Democratic Unionist Party will support the agreement.

A delay in the Brexit would bring economic consequences

The motoring industry would be one of the most affected, even if the United Kingdom avoids leaving the European Union in an incorrect manner, so it has been making plans to face possible problems in the event that a Brexit is reached without an agreement.

The pass of the United Kingdom to be a third country as of March 30, also carries a series of changes in the area of imports and exports to and from the European Union, apart from the modifications that must be made at the custom level and of the financial obligations of the companies.
