The uk has for the first time explicitly admitted that they have financial commitments towards the EU after brexit, which is likely to avoid a full-scale crash over utträdesräkningen in the negotiations with the EU next week.
It writes the Financial Times.
In a written statement to parliament that touches on a ”financial settlement” drew the attention of the government on Thursday that ”Britain has commitments to the EU…who will survive Britain’s exit – and these need to be resolved”.
The text, released by the Joyce Anelay, a brexit-minister, was seen immediately from the EU-direction as a potentially important development. EU diplomats said that the wording ”go further” than Theresa Mays earlier references to the united kingdom is willing to reach a ”fair settlement” of the unspecified commitments.
The EU estimates that the uk’s commitments uppår to approximately eur 100 billion.
