David Frost, the UK’s chief Brexit negotiator, said on Thursday that the EU was “surprised” and “disappointed” by the EU’s position in the negotiations in Brussels.

Frost Bank said on Twitter:

“The surprised EU is no longer committed to “double its efforts” to establish future partnerships.”

Frost Bank added that Johnson will respond to Britain’s response and policy on Friday.

The UK believes that it has done its best and has been urging the EU to reach an agreement within the next two weeks and advocate that the EU should make concessions.

EU leaders argued that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson threatened to take responsibility unless he made it clear. At this week’s summit that an agreement could be reached.

Earlier, the EU increased its pressure on Johnson after EU leaders reiterated their request for Britain to “take the necessary actions to achieve an agreement.”

The EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, told reporters that the deal has “prospects”. But he cannot say “we will definitely reach an agreement”.

However, these comments are a far cry from the UK’s demand for enhanced dialogue.

Talk about “not over yet”

“As we stand here I cannot say that we will definitely reach an agreement-we have the prospect of a deal. “Barnier told reporters after meeting with EU leaders, adding that as far as he is concerned, negotiations will continue. London next week, Brussels next week.

Although the UK believes it has done its best and hopes the EU will make concessions, EU leaders insist that the UK government is responsible.

 It hopes that the UK will make concessions on state aid and limit the subsidies that the government can provide to companies before considering its own compromise with the fishery.

European officials rejected Frost’s complaint and insisted that they would not persuade the EU to change its position.

Some people expressed dissatisfaction with this and asked not to be named due to the sensitivity of the negotiations. Two people said they thought the comments were aimed at Frost’s domestic audience. And two others said they might help strengthen the EU’s position.
