theguardian.com – EU willing to discuss free-trade deal after ‘progress’ on final terms of Brexit Negotiating guidelines say Britain must show progress on divorce settlement before trade talks in second phase.

The European Union is ready to talk to Britain on a future free-trade deal before the two sides agree final terms on Brexit, draft EU negotiating guidelines issued on Friday show, but only after considerable progress is made on the divorce deal.

As part of a “phased approach”, agreement on its withdrawal settlement in a first phase of negotiations would allow EU states to launch trade talks in a second phase.

The draft circulated by the European council president, Donald Tusk, also says the UK must accept EU rules, including budget contributions and judicial oversight in a transition period likely to follow Britain’s departure in 2019 and before a free-trade pact can be finalised.

If Britain remains a part of the EU single market for a time after Brexit, it would also have to respect all “four freedoms”, which would mean accepting free immigration from the continent.

The draft guidelines, distributed to the 27 other governments in the bloc on Friday, may be revised over the next month before being endorsed by the leaders at a summit on 29 April.
