Britain to Unveil 5 New Position Papers on Brexit Talks

LONDON - The British Brexit department said Sunday that it will release a patch of new papers in the coming days over negotiating positions regarding its withdrawal talks with the European Union (EU).
"This week we set out more detail of the future relationship we want with the European Union, putting forward imaginative and creative solutions to build a deep and special partnership with our closest neighbors and allies," British Brexit Secretary David Davis said in a statement.
"In the coming days we will demonstrate our thinking even further, with five new papers -- all part of our work to drive the talks forward, and make sure we can show beyond doubt that we have made sufficient progress on withdrawal issues by October so that we can move on to discuss our future relationship," he said.
The fresh five papers will outline Britain's negotiating strategy on key issues related to Brexit and Britain's future relationship with the 27 other EU nations.
The next round of negotiations is due to start on Aug. 29 in Brussels.
Two formal position papers on "the continuity in the availability of goods on the market" and "confidentiality of documents" are expected to be published on Monday, according to the statement.
In a technical paper, Britain will also call for services associated with goods to be included in divorce talks, claiming that it is the only way to protect consumers and businesses that trade before Britain leaves the bloc.
Services are essential for the production, sale and distribution of goods, along with their operation and repair, it said. (Xinhua)
