UK delighted with ‘excellent progress’ on Brexit – minister


Moscow   –     UK Minister of State for Exiting the European Union Martin Callanan on Tuesday said London was satisfied with the great advance the country had made on the Brexit issue after the approval of the withdrawal bill by the House of Lords.

Callanan arrived in Luxembourg for the General Affairs Council meeting of the EU foreign ministers.

“At home, in London, we’re delighted with the progress that we’ve made on our exit mechanics.

“The draw bill passed parliament and we’ll receive royal assent today, so we’re making an excellent progress on all fronts,’’ Callanan told newsmen before the meeting.

Recently, the House of Lords approved the government version of the Brexit bill, ending months of parliamentary debate on the withdrawal issue.

The Lords endorsed the bill by a simple majority, without voting procedures.

The bill will come into force as law after the royal assent.

The UK voted to leave the EU in a referendum in 2016.

The Brexit negotiations officially kicked off in June 2017 and are expected to be completed by the end of March 2019.
