No Brexit deal is a 'good outcome' says British PM

UK ready for any outcome of post-Brexit trade negotiations with EU – Johnson

Brexit: UK's chief negotiator says country isn't afraid to walk away from trade talks with EU

If the sticking point of fisheries and state aid can not be resolved and a deal agreed, Britain would have a trading relationship with the bloc like Australia's, which would be "a good outcome", Johnson said.

The UK formally left the European Union back in January with the transition period in place until the end of the year.

However, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, according to local media reports, talked tough on the deal negotiations with the EU.

EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier is scheduled to start talks here Tuesday with David Frost, the British government's chief Brexit negotiator.

"But we can not and will not compromise on the fundamentals of what it means to be an independent country to get it".

"We are now entering the final stages of our negotiations with the EU", Mr Johnson is expected to say.

The EU's chief negotiator in the talks, Michel Barnier, said Monday that he will be seeking clarification from David Frost, his counterpart in the United Kingdom, on Tuesday "to better understand the government's intentions".

The Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs, Simon Coveney it would be "a very unwise way to proceed" after it emerged London was ready to override the Withdrawal Agreement.

"It's an worldwide treaty with obligations in global law".

If correct, it could impact the legally binding special arrangements in place for Northern Ireland, specifically overriding parts of the Northern Ireland Protocol agreed a year ago, in a move that could pave the way for a return to a hard border.

The move raised concerns the Government could walk away from the Northern Ireland protocol - meant to ensure that there is no return of a hard border with the Republic - if the talks on a free trade deal fail.

Johnson's hardball tactics will likely compound suspicions from British pro-EU "remainers" that his Conservative government envisaged a "no-deal" scenario all along.

The EU was also anxious that Mr Johnson's government was planning domestic legislation that would water down commitments to maintaining an open border between the UK's Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland.

The launch of the campaign will also see joint letters from HM Ambassadors and HM Trade Commissioner for Europe Richard Burn to key industry groups and businesses in member states and EEA countries, to ensure everyone is aware of the campaign.

Likelihood of UK's departure from the bloc without a lucid trade deal has been mounting sharply over the recent past as Britain's insistence on full autonomy over its state aid plans had been threatening the feasibility of a UK-EU trade deal by an end-2020 deadline, negotiators from both sides alongside diplomats had unveiled late on Friday.

Mr Johnson added: "We will then have a trading arrangement with the European Union like Australia's".

A no-deal exit would be a "good outcome for the U.K." said British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Sunday. The country has to reach a trade deal with the bloc by the end of its transition period on December 31 or it may be subjected to tariffs and economic hurdles in 2021.

"As a responsible Government, we can not allow the peace process or the UK's internal market to inadvertently be compromised by unintended consequences of the protocol", the spokesman said. "As a result, we will prosper tremendously".
