August 2, 2020, 7: 6London, Aug 2 (Prensa Latina) The United Kingdom and the United States will review this week in Washington the progress in the negotiations of the free trade agreement that both countries intend to sign once Brexit is finalized, the British government announced today.

According to the Ministry of International Trade in a statement, the British delegation will be led by the head of that department, Elizabeth Truss, who plans to “hold a series of essential meetings” with the US trade representative, Robert Lighthizer.

London and Washington aspire to sign a free trade agreement once the UK definitively breaks its ties with the European Union (EU) later this year.

The European country left the bloc on January 31, but the withdrawal treaty signed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson with his European peers set an 11-month period to negotiate the terms of their future trade relationship.

Unlike negotiations with the United States, which US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said days ago in this capital are going well, negotiations with Brussels remain stalled after six rounds of talks.

The parties accuse each other of maintaining demands that are impossible to meet on issues such as fishing and legal powers.

In the case of the potential free trade agreement with the United States, the opposition British Labor Party warned that the Conservatives intend to deliver the National Health Service to American companies, especially after US President Donald Trump once assured here “that everything would be on the table. ‘

Johnson assures, however, that public health, a sacrosanct issue for the British, especially after the Covid-19 pandemic, would never enter the negotiations.
