Open talks

Living France - - WHAT'S NEW -

The Euro­pean Union has said Brexit talks can­not be in se­cret, an­nounc­ing that it will make all ne­go­ti­at­ing doc­u­ments avail­able on a public web­site.

Call­ing for “max­i­mum trans­parency”, the EU has pledged to al­low the public to see what is be­ing dis­cussed ev­ery step of the way.

Doc­u­ments to be pub­lished in­clude those re­lat­ing to the com­mis­sion’s po­si­tion on EU cit­i­zens’ rights, which are likely to be a pri­or­ity in the first months. Talks started on 19 June and the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier said he in­tends to main­tain a level of open­ness through­out. “We’re pre­pared to have great trans­parency on all the ne­go­ti­at­ing doc­u­ments that are to be made public,” he said.
