During this period of time, Britain and the EU started negotiations on various agreements after Brexit.

Britain once set October 15 as the deadline for negotiations, but it was postponed to November 19 and failed to reach a consensus.

At present, the differences between the UK and the EU mainly revolve around two major issues. The first is the right to fish in British waters, and the second is the regulatory difference between the UK and the EU.
Some EU diplomats have stated that the UK must accept the EU’s requirements for the second issue before the EU will consider concessions on the issue of fishing rights, otherwise there is no need to talk about it.
