周一中午时分,欧盟理事会德国轮值主席常驻代表委员会发言人塞巴斯蒂安·费舍尔(Sebastian Fischer)在推特上写道:“为#脱欧协议开了绿灯:欧盟大使们一致批准了从2021年1月1日起实施的欧盟-英国贸易与合作协议的临时申请。”


“以书面程序最终通过。截止日期:明天,15小时,”他补充道。


布鲁塞尔,12月28日(新华社)——一名发言人周一表示,欧盟(EU)成员国代表已就与英国(EU)的贸易与合作协议的临时应用达成一致,从2021年1月1日起生效。


周一中午时分,欧盟理事会德国轮值主席常驻代表委员会发言人塞巴斯蒂安·费舍尔(Sebastian Fischer)在推特上写道:“为#脱欧协议开了绿灯:欧盟大使们一致批准了从2021年1月1日起实施的欧盟-英国贸易与合作协议的临时申请。”


“以书面程序最终通过。截止日期:明天,15小时,”他补充道。


该委员会早些时候在圣诞节召开了会议,开始对长达1246页的草案进行初步审查。费希尔称,这可能需要几天时间。


“快速通道”程序是欧盟采用的,因为英国退欧后的协议在2020年底过渡期限到期前一周才达成。


欧洲议会将于2021年初正式审查该法律文件,暂时适用时间为1月1日至2月28日。

 

在欧盟委员会(European Commission)和欧洲议会(European Parliament)周一举行的对话中,议会提议延长临时期限,以便在3月的全体会议上审议该文本。


欧洲议会主席大卫·萨索利表示,议会希望尽量减少对公民和企业的干扰,防止无协议方案带来的混乱和负面后果。


上周四,欧盟和英国宣布达成一项协议,该协议将自2021年1月1日起管理双边贸易和安全关系。该协议需要得到欧洲议会、英国议会和欧盟27个成员国的批准。


英国是欧盟第三大商品贸易伙伴,仅次于美国和中国。

"Green light for #BrexitDeal: EU Ambassadors have unanimously approved the provisional application of the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement as of January 1, 2021," Sebastian Fischer, spokesperson of the Permanent Representatives Committee for the German Presidency of the EU Council, tweeted around noon time on Monday.

"Final adoption by use of written procedure. Deadline: Tomorrow, 15.00 hours," he added.

BRUSSELS, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- Representatives of member states of the European Union (EU) have agreed on the provisional application of the trade and cooperation agreement with the United Kingdom (EU) starting from Jan. 1, 2021, a spokesperson said on Monday.

"Green light for #BrexitDeal: EU Ambassadors have unanimously approved the provisional application of the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement as of January 1, 2021," Sebastian Fischer, spokesperson of the Permanent Representatives Committee for the German Presidency of the EU Council, tweeted around noon time on Monday.

"Final adoption by use of written procedure. Deadline: Tomorrow, 15.00 hours," he added.

The committee was earlier convened on Christmas Day to start preliminary review of the 1,246 pages of the draft text, which Fischer said could take several days.

The fast-track procedures were adopted in the EU as the post-Brexit agreement was only reached one week before the transitional period expires at the end of 2020.

The European Parliament is to formally scrutinize the legal document in early 2021, while it is provisionally applied from Jan. 1 to Feb. 28.

During a dialogue between the European Commission and the European Parliament on Monday, the parliament proposed to extend the provisional period so that it can go through the text at the March plenary.

European Parliament President David Sassoli had said that the parliament wanted to minimise disruption to citizens and businesses and prevent the chaos and negative consequences of a no-deal scenario.

The EU and the UK announced last Thursday the reaching of an agreement that will govern bilateral trade and security relationship starting from Jan. 1, 2021. The deal will need the approval of the European Parliament, the British Parliament and the EU's 27 member states.

The UK is the EU's third largest trading partner in goods, after the United States and China.
